    Heath Huston's kind of a straight forward choice, ain't he? I mean, from what I know of the series, he's just a perpetually wasted Adam Strange or Flash Gordon.

    I can understand Batman Jones and Drummer being on the line, though.

    Is that whole flavor text comic thing a heavy requirement? Or just a nice little fluff piece, because my comp crashed a couple days ago and i've been having to update things and it's gonna take me a few more days before i'm in fighting condition.

    So, if we can get by on a paragraph, that'd be great. I'd hate to suffer some demerits before this thing even starts.

    Just to clarify the format will be.

    Blurb of text followed by a comic detailing said text. Right?

    Can I be a superstar writer?

    I really want to fuck things up and make people angry and work really slowly.

    Meh, I'm just writing a few pages, then I'll probably just link the Wiki article. I'm looking at it as a kind of warm up for the future comicking, seeing as this is the first time I've ever written a comic script.

    Actually, Drummer is pretty damn powerful.

    Yeah, Heath is a kind of like Adam Strange only a little more on the surly side. Kind of like a cross between Adam Strange and Lobo.

    Oh, I know Drummer's powerful, and that's precisely why I wouldn't expect him to be in the competition.

    Moreso after the Elijah Snow and Ambrose Chase showings in the first tourney.

    Most of the ones that are questionable are questionable because they're a little more obscure than the others. I'm perfectly fine with them if the people who selected the characters can explain what the characters are all about.

    It's a good book, but it's not essential reading.


    Basically a Drunken Texan becomes a Galactic Bounty Hunter.

    Fear Agent is a science fiction comic book series by Rick Remender with art by Tony Moore and Jerome Opena, who alternate on story arcs. It stars the rugged alcoholic Texas spaceman Heath Huston, the last Fear Agent, in a series of fast-paced adventures. The series is notable for its emphasis on action, adventure, and plot twists rather than realism or scientific detail; Remender claims in the first issue that "science fiction has lost its stones" and that Fear Agent is his attempt to fight that trend.

    Yeah, you said he's a drunken texan who becomes a galactic bounty hunter. That's not how the story goes. And that's not what your little quote says. Try again.

    Maybe put a wikipedia notability rule? If yor character doesnt have a proper wiki article detailing his powers, origin and history, with sources, he cant be used?

    But then that means every pokemon is allowed, GO LEVEL 98 CHARRIZARD!!!

    Well, it says he's a Texan spaceman, yes? He is also an alcoholic.

    Well, there's the Drunken Texan.


    Now, what was he doing in the first issue?


    Oh yeah, he was taking out a hive of ape-men for some cash.


    Sounds like Bounty Hunting to me.


    EDIT: Although he calls himself an Exterminator, so I guess that works to.

    Yeah, you miss the part where he's originally a simple guy from Texas who saves the planet from three invading galactic empires when with a bunch of other texans. But if you only read the first issue online and a wikipedia entry I guess you would just put your own assumptions together.

    I said basically. Meaning I wasn't going to post a whole deep explanation on how he fought on an icy planet thousands of years in the past with Ape-people against the Machine race who later wanted to conquer Earth and was saved by the Jellies, only to discover that he fucked the future up with clones of his and his female companion(Who's name I forget.) becoming the guards of the Jelly civilization and cities being wiped out in an invasion that occurs pretty much right when he gets there.

    At his character's core, he's a Drunken Texan Adam Strange. He has some motivations, such as the invasion of Earth and the death of his children, but that is outside of the basic concept of his character.

    So, yeah I've read the fucking series, I'd advise you to not make assumptions of your own.

    I'm going to allow Heath Huston and Batman Jones and disallow the Drummer because I still have a headache from the Planetary shit from last time.

    Although I really would like to see Black Cat or Bart, I think, since they seem a bit closer to the superhero vibe this thing is going for.

    Actually, I don't even know what Huston looks like, so uh...maybe that would help

    Bounty Hunter was a bad choice of words, yeah.

    He became a Fear Agent, then a galactic exterminator, which was touched on in the first issue and in back-ups in later issues, but through a freak series of events he was thrown back into the Fear Agent business, yeah.

    So, Drunken Texan Cowboy Adam Strange would have been a better description, yeah.
