ITT Obscure / dead characters who deserve another shot
What do you mean, obscure / dead?
I miss him still, Ive seen maybe one appearance in 5 years.
The monkey's paw granted your wish
You're a funny guy you.
But yeah I'm okay with the phantom. I will say as much as I'm not a fan of character updates I would say he could probably use some updating though.
Generally, I'd just like to see a resurgence in pulp sci-fi.
At least I don't think there's anything going with him...
have they been doing anything with her recently?
Learn what guns look like before you go spouting maymay pet names you cunt.
Pic related, it's you
How would you GIVE them that other chance though?
Would you dare to reboot the character and hope for success that other franchises such as TMNT or Archie have had? Or would you just bring about a new direction entirely?
It's easy to mention an obscure/forgotten character and say that they should get an ongoing but it's a completely different thing to actually give an idea on what that ongoing should be about
Cyberpunk Shadow would literally be the easiest fucking premise to run with and be moderately successful
No really, it's amazing nobody has tried this
yeah two shot's isn't enough. always double tap
doc savage was in planetary, he was badass
> Smasher deserves a ongoing with Marco Checchetto and Stefano Caselli on art...
> I miss Avengers World... hold me...
It's perfectly entertaining, and the action is actually pretty good for a comedy.
Also there's no way to unironically update Green Hornet for modern day. He's just a guy in a nice suit with a sidekick and a couple gadgets, there's nothing unique about him that could grab people these days.
Making a goofy comedy was at least a distinct direction to take the characters.
I will never take Space Ghost seriously. Coast to Coast was too good.
Godtier suit though.
Now! Comics did a mini-series with a Cyberpunk Green Hornet
I'd read an ongoing about this guy, personally.
That run is god tier. One of my favorite comics.
Two of my favorite characters, but Marvel always seems to forget they exist for long stretches of time.
You would think book lead by a woman and a black man would fit right into Marvel's current diversity push.
This guy was awesome, A suave detective, with a butler . Interesting stories with nice ladies and action. Everything in proper measure. Never was campy or over the top.
Another of my faves. Early stories were not so good. But the ones made in the 60/70 were great.
It's been a few years now but they DID do a 'serious' take on Space Ghost
I mean, it's mostly because he was one of the FIRST comic books heroes so he kinda defined how superheroes should look, together with Golden Bat from Japan (pic related).
Like, his costume is super basic, it's just purple tights with underwear on the outside, and a domino mask. That's it. It's most barebones a superhero can get. Back then it was innovative, but it was 70 years - nearly a century - ago.
Dynamite is really kind of unscrupulous (copyright lawsuits over properties that they no longer own the rights to, but sue anyway) and they have a very bad reputation for poor story quality
I've got a soft spot for most of Hanna Barbera's older action cartoons
Did a character you liked get raped to hell and back by suits trying to skin a few more bucks by modernising a character that never needed to be and now you want to spread the misery around or are you just a bunch of assholes.
Honestly can't tell.
A lot of those characters were designed by Alex Toth, who was an absolute master. He's up there with Will Eisner in terms of sheer perfection of his work.
I really loved the early 2000's DC mini-series he had, kind of wish that it had spun off into something, but it didn't
I recommend the Space Ghost one-shot Steve Rude drew for Comico if you haven't seen it
>I couldn't put my finger on it.
Neither could he
just make the dog more competent
>man with a smoking gun
>Green Hornet wearing his mask
>Kato with nunchucks ready to kill
>hoodmounted gats on a slick ass car
>skyline at night
>pretty happy smiling blonde
>the next time you see Thundercats will be a shitty cash-in movie starring Ryan Reynolds and Chris Pratt
You Deserve this Jon For making me snigger
>murricans will never read "Djävulens bibliotek"
>murricans will never read about the phantom using the Jungle Patrol as his personal army
>murricans will never experience the pirate waifu
>murricans will never read about the phantom removing kebab on Malta
>murricans will never read about the phantom banging a Cardinal
who was secretly female
>murricans will never have based Lindahl covers
>murricans will never know the feeling of finishing a Phantom story, only for the ride to continue with Thorgal
He needs more development no more mental and death stuff
This reminds me, Speed Racer really should get the Crowds/Sins/Yoru no treatment from Tatsunoku. Just imagine, Speedy Running in the 90s doing some the Fast and the Furious shit. It would fucking rock.
How the fuck was The Shadow ever 'dieselpunk' you stupid shit? His stories literally took place in the contemporary 1930's and 40's with a few capeshit cliches like gadgets and impossible science but nothing as full-blown as changing the fundamentals of how the world works and behaves like a -punk setting.
If Captain Canuck can get a reboot, why not this guy?
