I think this guy has potential to be a great Superman adversary. I hope they use him well in more stories. IMO, this guy has potential to be a top 5 Supes opponent.
What did you guys think of Ulysses?
Is that Franklin Richards?
What is Franklin doing in the DC Universe?
Franklin go home this isn't your universe, it's over there.
Yeah but Galactus being able to beat Darksied is pretty plausible, and it was a oneshot instead of some event thing.
Also despite losing Darkseid got some props in that he didn't get his planet eaten since it was a 'dead world' and would give Galactus no nourishment, the whole reason Big G was attacking him in the first place was because the New Gods had hidden their own world from the devourer so he would wipe out their enemy instead, and Darkseid got to be the bigger man in not revealing this ruse when he discovered it at the end of the story because he states will one day conquer the New Gods himself.
Who'd you rather talk about /co/.
Or this youleesissy guy?
He's a large flying individual who punches guys
He's one of those artists that were very good and made a name for himself and now still gets work because that name is recognized and people mostly have no taste. He's just one of the many artists that drew in a different period and the digital inking and coloring are just killing their pencils(see also Kevin Maguire)
>Yet another superpowered punchbag
I hated, it seems that's the only fucking thing DC knows how to do with superman nowadays. I'm absolutely tired of this shit.
His art on Daredevil was amazing. I still like his current stuff, though it is not in the same class as his early work. Plus, like you said, he's part of the elite "18 issues a year" club (along with Mark Bagley), which is a noteworthy achievement, especially in today's comics.
His design looks like an intern at SHIELD who didn't manage to put on his whole uniform.
Meh, he was forgettable. I enjoyed the story though since i like plots where the hostile aliens pretend to be good at first. like that show V for example. so much better than just hurr we're here to conquer you humans!
A man of truly superior taste.
>not enough evil supermen
Especially dead ringers.
Clark pushed himself harder than he has ever before with heat vision. That allowed him to accidentally realize another form/power he had. Makes sense thematically, as he is a solar battery, so allowing him to release it all at once is plausible. Though imo it isn't that great of a power, the drawback is kinda big, and heat vision combined with his other powers are just as effective.
It's just heat vision depleting every solar cell in the body. They explained this in the book. It doesn't have any greater meaning besides being another option, he can still do normal heat vision if he wanted.
FUCKING JON ROMITA JR DOODLES REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
He's an old industry vet, having worked on comics for almost forty years now, since 1978. His dad worked on Marvel when it was still in the Lee/Kirby era. He gets things in on time and he can take on a ton of side-projects. And, from what I've heard, he's a fairly personable guy, so people in the industry like him. Plus, he's got an INSANE level of brand loyalty. He stuck with Marvel or Marvel's other brands for over thirty-five years, without glancing at DC's comics. Knowing that it's very hard to poach him has given him a lot of leeway with publishers.
If you went back to the 80s, his work on X-Men or Iron Man would be almost unrecognizable, though you could see his modern style poking through here and there. In the 90s and early 2000s, most of his work was slowly shifting away from his father's style to his current style, but it was still good. I still love his interpretation of Shocker as a large, heavily-padded fucker who's as big as a linebacker. His art didn't really start to suck until the switch to digital inking, though you could tell that it was degrading in quality later in his Spider-Man runs and in his Thor run.
A competent inker could probably breathe fresh life into his art, but it might be too late. He's a relic of the past, and it's sad, because in his heyday he was amazing.
The biggest problems I have with him are his massive sameface and the way he draws the same poses over and over. He's got the same people crouching in pain pose now that he's been using since he drew Rachel Summers in the 1980s. Thor, in his v2 run, flew in some of the same poses as Sentry did in WWH. And he's nearly as bad with faces now as Steve Dillon and Greg Land are, it's just that he has six or seven different faces and expressions compared to their two or three.
Yeah but like could he fire beams out of his hands or something if he tried? I wasn't sure if it just turned into standard energy projection rather then just with his eyes.
I enjoyed him and the entire arc. I thought it was neat that his biological parents were still alive and that he had aconnection with them. Like Superman his priorities were with adopted home instead of his biological one.
He tried doing a middle ground approach with Superman but it ended the destruction of his planet.
I hope the Ulysses comes back and isn't forgtten
