well both actually. The only person i've seen do more damage to someone in a comic is MAX punisher. The midnighter books is well written, and gratuitusly violent. lol two of my key points when reading a funny book

Spiderman vs Green Goblin


The most fabulous storyline in comic history!
You have friends, love, death ,betrayal, tragedy and vengeance. This whole plot (if you never read it, check out "The Death of Gwen Stacey" series).
Spidey was never gonna come out of this one smiling.

The only thing that bugs me about the gay characters is when the writers use their gayness as an excuse to do things out of character.

Like if Midnighter has to go kill Hitler and when he's about to do it, he has a flashback about his lover that looked like Hitler and so spares his life.

No goddammit! Gayness means you love men, not that you would spare Hitler's life just because he looks like your hump-buddy!

And yes, I did read the first issue, I'm on the second one now :D

(Oh and it's Wildstorm I think, so DC Comics.)

I never read much Spider-man, I wouldn't know where to start x_X

I myself have a problem with the whole gay superhero thing not because there gay but because that its a fad, and the only reason that they make the comic character gay is to cash in on the hollywood popularity of the gay community, they make the story line all around being gay instead of makin it a detail of the character and not the entire idenity, like north star great character and why because being gay is not the main reason you read about him, come on would you really want to read a comic that is solly devoted to dare devil tryin to get in to the pants of every female, I think not
God dosen't talk to me anymore............... so chingate'

I read up to issue 7 of Midnighter, they don't focus on him being gay at all. It's like watching Punisher in action except he can destroy tanks bare-handedly and he's gay, manly gay though. :lol:

When did Midnighter survive on Mars?
Ladies and Gentlemen, I know that man, that Doctor on high.
And I know that he has done this deed a thousand time. But not once. No, Sir, not once, not ever has he been thanked!
But no more. For I say to you, "Bravo, Sir! BRAVO!"

Cable & Deadpool gets Cancelled

Postby Shinobitron » Tue Dec 04, 2007 1:45 pm

OK so Marvel decides to bring back Cable and X Force and at what expense to destroy the only Marvel book I read Cable and Deadpool. The sad part of this whole venture is the fact that C&DP is a very high selling book. You would think that a book that attracts alot of readers would keep going but no they want to put Cable back in the seriousness of the marvelverse.

So fans of C&DP issue 50 shall be last! :(

I thought the point of the new X-Force was to go kill Cable....because he stole a baby.
