It would appear that we have some plagiarism on the Spawn page......

Read the Wiki powers of Spawn...

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/spawn_(comics)

And read our powers page.....

www.comicvine.com/spawn/3381/

Pretty much word for word. I didn't read the whole thing, just some of the powers. Please inform me if I messed up somewhere.

Also, sorry if the links don't work. Doing this all on a Wii, can't copy/pasteor see if the links work.

Currently I am on a Wii. It can't handle that much text, or it stops.

That's because Todd Macfarlane made Spawn, and since Toddy is a douche who can't handle the fact that his character is gayer then anal sex, he gives him all kinds of powers, just to make him the strongest in the universe. I mean, really, there's no focus with Spawn. He'd be cool as a horror character, but not as a cyborg smashing moron.

How dare you sir, how dare you. Spawn isn't even that powerful in fact, I can think of a laundry list of character that can best him. Spawn is one of my favorite character ever and he is very unique, in story and in powers.

Bah, humbug! Spawn is a well-done, gun-toting moron, who had a chance to become one of the coolest characters ever, but unfortunately that passed when Todd MacFarlane decided he would run Al "Mr. Bacon" Simmons to the ground.

Shakes head

I admit that his recent stories have been lacking but I would never say that it was terrible or crap. They should have taken him a different route and developed his character a bit more. Spawn is one of the coolest characters in comic book history.

Frankly, I don't hate Spawn as much as I hate Punisher, or Guy Gardner. If someone like Alan Moore or some quality writer decided to do a Spawn story, I would read it, and if I heard that the new Spawn stories drifted away from the '90s and more into awesome Gothic Horror with Spawn encountering, like, Cthuhlu and zombies and stuff, I would pick it up. But Todd doesn't do that. He wastes this awesome costume and radical concept on stale, boring story lines. Really, someone should tell Todd to leave the speech bubbles on the panel alone, and just draw the pictures. He does better that way.

I kinda like the whole religious thing they had going. Sounded cool. But after the Armageddon thing, I lost interest. I was gonna jump in from all the awesome praise I heard (yeah, I heard praise), but....yeah.....Armageddon......

you do have a point. why did spawn have all of those guns? that's just pointless. worse then cable and his gun fetish. spawn is good but he could have been soooooo much better.

#15 Posted by Donnieman v5.1 (44323 posts) - - Show Bio

he used guns cuz his magic is only finite

sure that's the explanation but mcfarlane just wanted to have them because it's so cool to have really big guns in each hand.

No, an awesome crossover would be as follows:

Spawn/Hellboy

Spawn/AoD

Spawn/Tick

Spawn/Lobo

...thought of others. I'll think harder later...

Spawn was my dad's favorite character to play as in Soul Calibur 2, but he got really mad at me when I wiped the floor with him playing as Nightmare. I don't know much about Spawn in the Comic world, but i know in that game he's not that hard to beat.

He gets quite emotional when I beat him at video games... I had to stop playing for a while there because he threatened to kick me out if i beat him again.

Alan Moore did write a Spawn story : "In Heaven" in issue #8

Neil Gaiman did a story in issue #9

Dave Sim had a Cerebus crossover in #10

Frank Miller : #11

Those stories were cool. Later, In the late 90's I tried to read Spawn, but whenever I would pick up an issue, there's be this pointless monologue that would last for pages. Haven't looked in one for years.

The monsters, especially the "toy" figures look really fricking cool.

I liked the Dreamcast game (cutting people in half was the coolest) and played it for a while. I heard a lot of the other games really suck, so I haven't gotten another one

About the guns: it seemed every hero in the 90's had to have these huge guns, one for each hand. What was silly was they'd run around with two huge guns strapped to their back, and they would neatly conceal those 20 foot capes they, especially Spawn, had.

So that's my opinion on Spawn stuff.
