    Except that his old war wasn't over at that point.

    Once it was though? He stepped aside.

    The whole Hydra/Leviathan/SHIELD thing had been going on since the 60s? 70s? I can't see him fading away until after it was resolved, no way is he going to just leave that for someone else to finish.

    his left side, because he never sees it coming.

    Goddamn it. I literally just did a spit take reading this.

    Namor was Marvel's second character after the Human Torch

    He is his own thing

    First, if I remember right.

    There was this comic, Motion Picture Funnies Weekly or something. Failed one shot done before Marvel Comics 1 started everything off. Didn't get much of a print run, as far as I know, or much distribution, but it was Namor's debut.

    The third guy from Marvel Comics was The Angel, who kind of rules. Basically, he's a surgeon with an awesome mustache who looked at the world and went "I'm going to be a superhero."

    So, he put on a cape and a costume, then just went around kicking everyone's ass and righting miscellaneous wrongs. First guy in the MU to save the day, since the Torch was originally just a Frankenstein's Monster, and Namor's a dick.

    He shows up from time to time in flashbacky stuff.

    Edit: Wait. I'm an idiot.

    Ka-Zar was first, since he was in pulps. But Ka-Zar sucks and Namor rules, so I have an excuse.

    Is it really so hard to justify sending the Hulk into space?

    He's, like, basically invulnerable, and beyond being scientist Bruce Banner, eminently qualified SHIELD liaison, we've got a guy who has no reason to fear the vacuum of space and will have no trouble coming back alive.

    There's plenty of positive reasons for sending him up too.

    Eh, movie Hulk still needs to breath, probably. We see in Incredible Hulk that he defeats Blonksy choking the shit out of him.

    what if
    Hulk is sent into space on accident during a battle with Thanos, but done in a way that Hulk thinks that his friends are responsible? that way, the audience can still root for both sides, and the situation can get resolved smoother. Planet Hulk without a followup as extreme as World War Hulk.

    I have never liked Nick Fury

    mostly because he is one of those military/espionage guys in fiction who are massive jerks but it's okay, they are making the tough choices!

    whereas really

    they are just massive jerks

    Military/espionage types are meant to be assholes to main characters. It's a thing. There are exceptions, of course.

    Ka-Zar fought man-thing handily

    Ka-Zar fights dinosaurs

    Ka-Zar has a pet sabretooth tiger

    Ka-Zar has a smokin' hot wife who's just as deadly as he is

    Ka-Zar is a-okay with me

    Honestly, I considered taking it back the second I typed it. I mean, yes, Ka-Zar is a contender for Most Blatant Tarzan rip-off, and his brother is lame, but I always support more dinosaur fights.

    Ka-Zar just isn't as fun as Namor, which is saying far less.

    Mark Waid's Ka-Zar run is awesome.

    Ka-Zar isn't like Tarzan though.

    He was raised in civilization and still longs for it every so often.

    Go read Mark Waid's Ka-Zar. He beats up Thanos.

    I meant initially, I suppose. Doesn't surprise me he developed into his own character, and thanks for the recommendation. Waid's generally worth the reading anyway, even ignoring dinosaur fights.

    Squirrel Girl can beat up anyone off-screen. There's no shame in losing to her that way.

    Anybody still playing the Facebook game?

    PVP just ended and top placers will get Frank Castle, Havok and Magneto are up for grabs in the current Spec Ops, and in two days Psylocke will be available for recruitment.

    The RNG is still a bitch, and the AI is still a dumbass.

    I've been on to do the havok stuff but god damn that stupid headsock. Why would they use that costume.

    Havok is about one thing damn it: concentric circles power

    Not having read a lot of Havok related stuff, I have to ask about his classic suit:

    The concentric circles are ALWAYS concentric circles, regardless of which way Havok's torso faces, right?

    Whether Namor or Human Torch is first is a bit of a debate.

    The Angel rules indeed

    Pulp Ka-Zar is not the same character as comics Ka-Zar though (though I'm not 100% sure on that).

    Sorry. I think of head socks like the gambit look where it frames the face and is open for hair.

    I think he works if you go with someone who is a sure shot and just enjoying the idea of being in space, treating it like a roller coaster ride. Shoot bad guys, help the downtrodden and have fun, it would be a nice change and stand out from other heroes.
