This guy smacked around the Mighty Avengers and punched Sentry into orbit.

He is the man. Cant' wait to see more of him!

I would also like to see more of him,it's really hard for me to get in to newer characters but considering how powerful he seems,I'm interested.

I hope he will be joining the Avengers sometime.

Same here. He is an awesome character so far.

Totally agree.  That Sentry thing was awesome.

We need to see Blue Marvel again. What is he up to now?


I am really interested in where his character will go

He is stronger than Sentry and just as fast and tough. Haven't seen any energy manipulation yet.

But having a character that could stalemate Sentry is good since he is a little off.

He needs to be on the New Avengers. They need the power and he would be against Osborne.

The Blue Mavrel rocks. I hope he doesn't die or lose his powers.

i thought sentry was suppose to be the strongest of all?

i think if he is a stalemate for sentry than the void should take over sentrys personality and they can be arch enemies.

Blue Marvel is an awesome character and I'm glad K.G. said that the character won't just be thrown away.

does marvel real need a superman? another superman? I dont know about you all but IMO marvels MO is that they dont have superman! it makes all their heros that much more important it makes them unified. In many ways i think it defines marvel the lack of an all powerful hero that can swoop in and save the day in the blink of eye.

Absolutely not. The farther away they keep Bendis from him the better.

is this dude ever going to appear again. His whole comic was about him finally becoming a superhero again after being forced to retire by the government. Now when Dark Reign is happening and the good guys could use a powerhouse to rival Sentry on their side he is no where to be find.


Yeah way to plan ahead marvel. If he ever does make another appearance I expect a good explanation from Marvel.

Marvel wanted to see how he would be taken. Most like him here on the Vine. Can't see why Marvel would bring him back.

Haven't been able to read him yet so I came here to get some insite on him and saw these comments,
 and had to comment.

@AtPhantom:
totally agree, keep Bendis away from Marvel and I might be able to read it again.

@speedlgt:
No Marvel does not need a(nother) superman.

Marvel doesn't need another Superman, they just need one that hasn't been written by a wanker. Take away Bendis and then put him on the New Avengers imo.

#19 Posted by Korg (11931 posts) - - Show Bio

Marvel doesn't need any supermen. Sentry was a terrible concept way before Bendis ever wrote him, and so is Blue Marvel. I wish they would stop trying to shoehorn ridiculously powerful characters into continuity like they've always been there.

I agree with that, if you're going to introduce a character don't pretend he's some silver age awesome guy that Stan Lee wrote. It's lame, it cheapens the characters you use to write it in and it's insulting to fans who you think are stupid enough to swallow your crap writing.

It cheapens Stan Lee's legacy as well.

I didn't like his mini-series...and I don't like his concept. He struck me as a black rehash of Sentry. A powerful Superman-type that was forgotten by the world and he returns to save it from a enemy that only he can destroy and is his opposite. Same crap, different character. The character has promise going forward, but as it stands, he sucks in my book.

@iLLituracy:
Doesn't DC already have this concept?  (Bought from another company)
#28 Posted by robbiesol (474 posts) - - Show Bio

Maybe they will bring him in to battle Ares.  Cyke made reference in a recent comic that somehow, someway they need to find someone to take that monster (Ares) down.   
 
Maybe that is Blue Marvel's big entry battle.  Can't do worse for a first showing than taking out the God of War.

Well...one of the really cool things about the Blue Marvel is that he is this extremely powerful and intelligent superhero...that just happens to be African-american.  I think that European-americans may be overlooking this fact when examining the Blue Marvel.  Ultra powerful African-american superheros are not just falling out of the sky.  However, that is only a small part of his appeal.  As the mini reveals, it's the depth of his character that is really intriguing...his courage in the face of resentment and hatred.  For years, Marvel quietly hinted at racism in a parallel way..with the X-Men.  Kevin Grievoux addresses it directly...but in such a tasteful way.  As mentioned, Adam Brashears skin is not his only appeal.  He is an intriguing, multi-faceted character....who just happens to be in the elite of ultra powered superheroes.   
 
I cannot wait until Marvel does something further with this character.
