Deadpool is just a conduit for self serving comic in-jokes.

"Wade" in that....

Hmm. I think I'd prefer Luke Cage in his original boots for some reason.

I like Deadpool too.

I think he can be funny when wrtten by the right person - Gail Simone or Joe Kelly for example.

My top 3 characters I don't "get."

I never "got" Deadpool or the Punisher, but for me Lobo has ALWAYS been DC's doppelganger for Wolverine, more or less.  Since EVERYTHING seems to be more "cosmic" and more "powerful" in the DC Universe, DC's version of Wolverine would probably have to be a Superman-class brawler, expecially since DC doesn't really have anything that's equivalent to Adamantium.

That's always been my take on the character, anyway.

Rather less than more! Altho Lobo was clearly DC's attempt to pump up a lame character, and turn him into their Wolverine, they missed the mark by several hundred lightyears. Alas, there were plenty of fans to pronounce Lobo "cool", simply because he was arrogant and "broke the rules", while possessing none of the depth of characterization Wolverine had developed over the years.

When Lobo started using all those ropes instead of chains is when I thought they were pulling it back a bit, but it didn't stick.

Back on topic...I thought Luke Cage's pants were blue - why do you want them black, JB?

Luke Cage's pants were originally black, I'd forgotten about his boots.

It's almost impressive that they got the color right on the Marvel
Legends action figure.

I don't want to see this thread turn into another pointless "debate" over whether Spider-Man's costume is red and black, or red and blue, but it strikes me as curious that the painters of these little figures can look at, say, the Black Cat or the Black Panther and know that the blue on their costumes is not representative of the intended color, yet will look at Luke Cage and assume his tights are blue.

And it can't simply be because those first two have "Black" in their names. They got the color right for Storm, Venom, Namor, Nightcrawler and the Super Skrull (tho they did get it wrong on Nick Fury).

Those aren't...blue? I'm aware of the whole blue/black thing, but I've seen way more Luke Cage like this above than the other way. Am I in the wrong here? Again? :0

The issue immediately after the title changed from HERO FOR HIRE…

Simple reality, Luke's tights turned "blue" for the same reason the black parts of Spider-Man's costume and the original X-Men uniforms (not to mention Batman's cape and cowl, among others) turned blue ---- spotting blacks takes time, and in comics, with deadlines every chasing, it's all about time. Eventually, the version that is technically wrong becomes the norm, and we end up having discussions like this.

Wonder Woman's mother became a blonde for the same reason. Darkseid's arms and legs turned purple, and I actually had to fight to have them restored to their original grey. Northstar and Aurora end up with white hair, Storm with a white costume. Etc, etc.

Would Captain America? The costume is a costume, not street clothes. It's Luke's way of "branding".

Yes, it is good to see when a post is edited.

Mind-reading aside, thatdoes not change that I went to check the rules again, saw that all wikipedia was off limits, and edited my post accordingly after noting your friendly reminder that followed.
