Did Helspont ever return in the new 52 after his early appearances?

I stuck with DC for about a year after the new 52 reboot but then it all turned to shit (both art and writing) and I canceled about 13 series from my monthly subscription over the next few months. It looked promising for a while and then nothing.

Did Helspont return and do something interesting or did they forget about him?
>>
I know he comes back after that first story in that Supes book but it was in some lackluster title like Supergirl or something where he didn't do much.
>>
>>77932806
He came back in Red Hood and the Outlaws but 'died'
>>
have you tried reading Grayson
>>
>>77932806
They mostly forgot about him. One of the writers had a big plan for him, but pissed off another writer, who later killed him off (sort of, it was off screen and Helspont's body is probably the strongest host in the universe, and even if destroyed he can just find a new one). So we'll probably see him again. There are rumors they're going to try some new stories and some people were thinking WildCATS might make a full reappearance.

I'm not going to lie and say everyone wants daemonites back or there's millions of fans chanting for them, but they pop up fairly often on pretty much every /co/ related site and it's likely someone will do something with them.

more importantly, Parallax Hal has returned and his wrecking shit across space-time.

Not really.

>>77933115

Sorry to hear that. This was the one part of the wildstorm DC merger that interested me. Well this and stormwatch with manhunter on the team (which lasted for all of 5 minutes).
>>
>>77932806
You guy lost só many cool shit.
>>
>>77933295
Say that to his face motherfucker and not behind the memetic barrier
>>
He showed up in Red Hood and the Outlaws and he got beaten like a punk. I don't remember quite well what happened. He had Starfire's sister as his bitch and was readying an army to finally take over the world, and the trio MCs took out his army while a villain of the comic that got cured off-panel reconfigured a weapon Helspont had and used to beat him. It was all done in one issue.
>>
>>77933342

That is just embarrassing. That is like Thanos losing to squirrel girl.
>>
>>77933342

I actually mixed that up. The villain who was cured took out his army and Arsenal took out Helspont, but not before Helspont taking a big beating from Starfire.

>>77933418

Well, according to Lobdell every character he writes are better than everything else.
>>
Here's the page. Helspont is no more.
>>
>>77933471
>Helspont taking a big beating from Starfire

He backhanded superman into the moon while toying with him.

So this was writers deliberately fucking with each other, more or less?
>>
>>77932806
The fuck is up with Supermans pose
>>
>>77933614

>The fuck is up with Supermans pose

He is being grabbed like a ragdoll.
>>
>>77933645

Sorry meant to post the previous page.
>>
>>77933222
>Parallax Hal has returned and his wrecking shit across space-time

Was he the first to knock out superman with one punch?
>>
>>77932806
You know it just hit me, but that Helspont story, meh as it was was still leagues better than any current Superman title, this makes me sad.
>>
>>77935057

I was just happy to see a character who could genuinely bully superman and treat him like a child.

He was Stronger, faster, smarter, had better enhanced senses, more experience. He simply stated something along the lines of "I can kill you at any time but you are a useful idiot. Keep protecting earth in my absence because I will come back and farm it later"
>>
>>77933580
That's disappointing. That's like Goku losing to a cat.
>>
>>77935959
didn't get punked by a grunt with a laser beam in one of the new movies
>>
>>77936003
And it was even more disappointing.
''Goku the strongest there is''
my ass
>>
>>77935959

Especially considering what kind of shape superman was in after their last encounter.

>didn't get punked by a grunt with a laser beam in one of the new movies

Goku? yea. They even pointed out that goku is only situationally powerful. If he is not focusing on channeling ki to his defenses he can easily be hurt by conventional weapons. DBZ characters are really just powerful energy manipulators and not that physically powerful unless they focus on it.

>>77933580

fucking shit art.

Actually now that I think about i, how did the new 52 superman compare to the others?

They very rarely put a number to it. In all star superman they put out the number " 200 quintillion tons" after he was powered up by extra yellow solar energy. That is a small fraction of what the new 52 one could do.

>>77933580
That fucking mask
>>
>>77936830
so darks
>>
>>77936230
Not a good design
>>
>>77932806
One of the saddest things of the New52, taking apart the Wildstorm part of it.
