    Lose the belly-shirt, and make the shoulder-pads smaller, and you might have something.

    Maybe for some new hero/villain
    If it wasn't for the cape and hammer that wouldn't really look like Thor

    When Deodato drew it he looked pretty cool

    Yeah, he needs to lose the headgear too.

    I actually like that headgear

    those around the face mask things look alright when not worn by fucking Gambit

    Look, a cup's all well and good when you're fighting Batroc.

    But when you're going up against the Destroyer? You want a cod-piece that's not easily destroyed.

    It doesn't look very flexible
    What if he has a team-up with Black Widow or She-Hulk?
    Guy could end up shattering his own cod piece

    He's Thor

    shattering things when he teams up with sexy ladies is what he does

    No mere cod piece is going to shatter Thor's godly hammer. Or mjolnir, either.

    Why I love the Suicide Squad:

    For those that don't know, Solo was a comic published by DC, that served as a showcase, for particularly notable creators. Each one would feature short stories, pin-ups, or whatever else the creator felt like doing. It was mostly amazing, owing to the talents of contributors like Tim Sale, Darwyn Cooke, Paul Pope, Damion Scott, Richard Corben, and Mike Allred, among others. Each issue was oversized, printed on a sturdy paper stock, and featured no ads.

    Predictably, it was canceled following its twelfth issue.

    Here's four pages from Solo #7, by Mike Allred.

    I like that bit with Batman and Alfred, but that particular theme would have worked better with Superman I think.

    Batman is supposed to be messed up.

  • MunchMunch Registered User regular
    It actually reminds me of a bit from Darwyn Cooke's The New Frontier, where Batman decides to transition from Golden Age, Bill Finger/Bob Kane Batman, to Silver Age, Dick Sprang Batman. Basically, Batman terrifies a child into hysterics, and decides he wants to lighten his image, because it was never his intention to horrify children.

    Which actually reminds me of another Batman story, by Paul Pope, in which Batman is confronted by a child, who is initially reticent, before deciding that Batman's, "Not scary at all!"

    That's always kind of shaped my image of Batman. He's frightening to people who should be frightened of him. But, a little kid would think Batman's cool. Which makes sense, being that Batman was essentially borne from the imagination of a little kid.

    So, I think he can be lighter, and still work. I don't want him to be Silver Age Batman by any means, but there's a middle-ground between that, and War Games/Identity Crisis Batman.

    I feel like a relic that never existed reading and enjoying that.

    He's perfect for Daredevil, excepting that it looks like it's going to start accounting for his past.

    That is amazing, Munch. I think I agree with you regarding Batman too, but I think my ideal Batman is pretty close to Sean Connery's James Bond.

    I carry a grudge against her for destroying black adam's family and sparking a confrontation with him where there previously was none.

    I must disagree. Batman's entire raison d'etre is a tortured psyche resulting from childhood trauma, and his look and persona were chosen expressly to inspire fear.

    I think manwiththemach is correct that would have worked better with Superman.

    Yes, but how many black women in their 40s-50s get to kickass in comics?

    Not, many.

    The Wall is just that badass.

    Yes she lost, but the whole arc was basically suicide, and Darkseid at the end was all, "WTF Granny? You got trashed by a bunch of mortals, PENANCE TIME!"

    That is fantastic. I had totally forgotten a new one came out today.

    This is kinda cool; Gene Ha gives a nod to Brandon Graham's King City and Multiple Warheads, in the DC FCBD book. I completely missed this, both times I read the book.

    Not an awesome moment, but an awesomely researched handbook page showing every trick arrow Hawkeye has ever used. Hawkeye is getting dangerously close to being over-exposed right now, but still one of my favorite Avengers:

    To go with the TV show superhero talk, the Secret Defenders think that some Cryptkeeper stand-in is killing people based on the locations in the song Route 66, so they go to the TV studio to stop him, because certainly it wouldn't be someone else with the same name, right?

    I just like that Frank has the time for two puns on the page.

    DC needs to get this guy to have strips in their comics like Marvel did for their cartoonist.

    And then after a while DC could replace them with horrible strips by Liefeld's daughter about different colored Batmen.
