I've seen this spread a ton, but never what leads up to it:
Nick Fury, chillin' in the desert smoking a cigar while a SHIELD missile descends upon him so he can test a new force shield (you'd think they'd use dummies for this). The shield is sabotaged, so Nick runs to a rocket powered sled as it speeds away, jumps on, and is dragged to safety.

Those Nick Fury panels are indeed awesome, but I have to wonder. Is it just me, or does anyone else imagine Fury should be smoking a Cigar, WHILE he's running for the Rocket Sled? Because it's the 60's and drat it you just smoke no matter what!

Hitman #52: otherdimensional entities known as the Many-Angled Ones are poised to destroy Gotham, and then the world. Standing in their way is Six-Pack, a delusional drunk who thinks he's a superhero.

Despite having no powers, and knowing he has no powers and knowing that everyone thinks he's a drunken joke, he still faces off against the demons.

I've seen it suggested that "the flames will not touch you" means that the Many-Angled Ones are unable to harm Sixpack -- either because he's "pure of heart" and "a true hero", or because he actually has some sort of force field power.

This misses the entire point.

It'd probably be prohibitively expensive but they really should have put one of those greeting card sound chips in each issue keyed so that whenever you turned to or from a page where Black Dynamite does something awesome you hear the DYNAMITE DYNAMITE.

The end of that story arc can easily go in the touching panels thread. Six Pack was a goddamn champ.

I also always saw his fate as an indicator that Tommy's dream from the final storyline is a premonition about his afterlife and not just a dream. In that dream, Tommy's having a good time with all of his friends who had died throughout the series, but Six Pack is missing. As far as Tommy knows, Six Pack is dead, so if it was merely a dream, he should have been in the crowd.

I'd seen people fight sharks before, but never seen a shark get stabbed and have its throat slit by its dorsal fin.

Nah, the idea that it's because he's a true hero is actually right in line with a running theme in Ennis's comics.

Speaking of Thunderbolts, this is from Thunderbolts #22.

The Thunderbolts are in Hell and have made a pact with Mephisto. In a contract overseen by Red Leader, it's agreed that if they can topple the current ruler of Hell and give it back to Mephisto, he'll send them home and also pull down Mercy, a powerful and insane being they really need to get rid of. Turns out the latest ruler of Hell is Strong Guy, but a deal's a deal and Red Hulk gets him to step down. Between bringing in Mercy and Deadpool's antics, Hell suddenly becomes a chaotic mess and Mephisto is none too pleased.

I kinda feel like the sentence "Carnage is free" kind of implies that slaughtering is going on, to the point where it's stupid to even bring it up.

Also it's nice to see that the 90s tradition of getting artists who clearly don't know anything about the characters to draw symbiotes is not wholly dead, because Carnage doesn't have a Venom tongue.

Awesome and hilarious. I like the 'my family tree looks like two sticks jutting out of a dead raccoon', personally. They totally need to put that in a movie at some point. I guess the telepaths didn't have to work hard on Norman.

That's the beautiful part, they're not even particularly powerful telepaths, it's just that the entire team is, to varying degrees, barely hanging on to a semblance of sanity and humanity, so they basically just need a shove.

This caused a bunch of angels to invade Hell as they chased Deadpool, causing more headaches for Mephisto.

The best part is that when they return to Earth, they find Frank Castle broken and bloody due to a fight with Mercy, moments from death. The angel feather magically heals him and Deadpool's all, "Wait, why would an angel feather help Castle? What's he got to do with angels?"

It's kinda weird that the weirdo alien stole Loki's "Is this not your natural state?" speech from the Avengers movie almost verbatim. I wonder if Hickman was trying to make some kind of point with that, or if he just straight up decided to rip off a memorable line from the movie.

There's a terrible lack of The Sixth Gun in this thread.

The Six are primal weapons forged by the devil hisself, and the greatest of them is the Sixth. Wielded by an undead confederate general, it recently fell into the unlikely hands of a Preacher's daughter.

quote:

One strikes with the force of a cannon shell. One spreads a flesh-rotting disease. One spreads the fires of Perdition. One allows the wielder to heal from any wound. One can call up the spirits of the people it has gunned down.

The Sixth Gun grants the wielder the gift of prophecy.

Our hero, Becky, is exhausted, hunted and haunted, and has had enough of this poo poo.

Not to take away from this, but it is rather hypocritical of Thor to get mad at tony for doing this when he became the all-father, killed the avengers, took over earth, then had to send himself back in time to stop himself from doing that. And that wasn't an alternate universe either it was 616. Of course due to the nature of time travel, the future where Thor kills the avengers, takes over the planet etc. etc. is now only an alternate universe.

but gently caress it, Civil War and its fallout were dumb.
