Gotta be the Hulk, right?
theres seems to be an endless supply of ones i havent heard of that seem to warrant their own movie, The Green Lantern, wtf kinda superhero is that?
stops druggies from shooting up by making it hard for them to find their veins
and the stories since geoff johns has joined have been awesome.
blackest night?! secret origins?! rebirth?!
just that i think its a ridiculous name, whats his special power?
with which he can create giant boxing gloves using only his willpower to defeat his enemies.
basically he wields a ring which can create anything he can imagine. so for about 30 years the artists and writers had him defeating most of his enemies with giant green scissors, or mallets or boxing gloves. was a bit pish to be fair.
then the sci fi element went mental
and is part of a team of intergalactic peace keepers.
He's exactly the type of person we should all aspire to be.
Rich dude owns a corporation, has state of the art equipment and he uses this to beat up on street level crime. He doesn’t mess with the industrialists or the super capitalists, the Murdock or the Trumps he’d rather just fuck with the purse snatchers on the corner! Batman is a conservatives wet dream! Fuck batman!”
and then there's gammaray-evoked, angry-green-man levels of ridiculousness.
Booster Gold is pretty much Batman, but yellow, yeah?
Booster Gold stole a time machine and some advanced tech from his own time period, landed in 80's comics land and then tried to use his knowledge of history and his stolen tech to make himself rich and famous.
He's known for being a bit of a dick and fairly inept.
He's kind of the opposite type of hero to Batman, who is all selfless and for justice and dark, whereas Booster Gold is (initially) a selfish, self interested arse whose heroics are a way to get sponsorship deals.
And the Savage Submariner, who seems to be drawn like the classic TV rapist.
that's gotta be a piss-take.
He's not really a superhero in most arcs, regularly the villian inside of Bruce Banner. It takes a lot for Banner to control the Hulk inside him. And it's pretty basic comic book lore because of 'an accident' he transforms. Not more mental than Spider-man really.
I'd say Daredevil - what's the point in a blind Superhero that /can see anyway/. I don't know. I dislike the premise.
the worst marvel film, and probably one of the worst films i've ever seen
this thread was inspired by the fact that I've just finished watching: Spider-mans 1-3, Daredevil, Electra, the Hulk (Ed Norton one), Fantastic Four 1 & 2, and one or two others I've already forgotten.
Daredevil was fun, but I take sheeldz' point about the ridiculousness of a blind superhero whose blindness isn't actually a weakness.
run on daredevil was one of the best comic book titles of the last few years. so so good
it was called
lawnmowers for heroes, comics for zeroes.
its not on youtube or id have posted a link.
Do you think cinema can ever match the achievements of the "Three Men And A..." films?
The mind reels.
Where's Fruitman when you need him?
Sports candy anyone?
^some people might not want to click that. It contains adult themes and sexual references (no nudity, though).
he's a man the size of an ant (who may or may not controls ants, I can't remember).
She-Hulk: The Hulk with tits. And she's a lawyer.
Thor-Girl: Thor but a female teenager with big tits.
Deadman: He's a man, and he's dead. DEADMAN!
All the 'cosmic' ones whether it be Marvel or DC. Any of the Legion of Super Heroes folk, Bouncing Boy is probably the worst though. His super power is that he can inflate himself like a ball and bounce. REALLY!
what do you have against superheroines with big tits?
go and google power girl.
The ongoing sub story to him beating on his now dead wife, the Skrull element, the constant lack of self belief making him change his name. Yes he uses ants as a power but he can also grow reet huge and shrink reet tiny
A superhero whose power is HE CAN DO EVERYTHING. And whose only weakness is exposure to a mineral found in abundance on his home planet and NOWHERE ELSE and is apparently HARMLESS TO EVERYONE ELSE IN EXISTENCE.
I'll let Wikipedia do the talking:
"A flamboyant South African mutant who spoke in exaggerated Afrikaans slang, Maggott was advertised as one of the strangest X-Men. His digestive system took the form of two slugs which could eat through practically any substance. After feeding, the slugs reentered Maggott's abdomen and passed nourishment into him, giving him incredible power."
because the stories are so oppressively mean-spirited and demented. A wealth of amazing images to steal for record covers in there...
Another successful comic book thread guys!
Is Batman the best superhero ever, or the worst superhero ever?
Worst: He's not a superhero
Best: YOU COULD FEASIBLY BE BATMAN
Using only loads of pockets and some forward planning.
We could all be Batman, if we had unlimited wealth and a borderline psychotic disorder.
Mark Zuckerberg could feasibly be Batman. I'm not sure I'd have the resources to afford a bus fare to crimes, let alone a robotic suit and a batmobile. I could feasibly be Robin from the 60's version of Batman, I think that's as high as I could aim for
