Charlie Adlards DC/WS The Establishment

<< < (2/2)

Wake:
I liked Balls Brothers too...well certainly compared with its peers (Space Girls, BLAIR1, Big Dave). John Wagners wit shone through.

NikolaiDante:
Hmm superheroes... What is the definition of superhero? Someone with special powers that they use for good? If so perhaps Nikolai Dante can be considered with his bio-blades?

Dante



pauljholden:
Where's Nads when you need her.

I tend to go with unique individual who's working outside the laws.

Which covers vigilantes. So I'd add, must wear spandex.

Billy the Cat was a superhero, then, wasn't he? And General Dumbo?

Mk13:
:Someone with special powers that they use for good?

Hmmm, doesn't that rule out Batman and a good few other non-enhanced tights-wearers?

I tried to define what a superhero was for a magazine feature once, and I can tell you, it's bloody difficult. As far as I remember, the best I could come up with was "A comics character of abilities beyond a normal human (whether through training, mutation or mechanical means) who operates with what he/she believes are good intentions against a perceived evildoer."

I'd guess Nikolai Dante occupies that grey area between superhero and antihero that is also home to Jenny Sparks and a lot of other British-created heroes.

Dominic O'Rourke:
and therefore not a superhero, but my favorite all the same
