I MEAN HE GOT DALE KILLED

#2 Posted by mrdecepticonleader (18743 posts) - - Show Bio

I actually don't mind him.

#3 Posted by Captain_Yesterday (807 posts) - - Show Bio

I think he's a badass. Sure he can be a brat sometimes but he's a kid growing up in the zombie apocalypse and handling better than most men(for better or worse).

#4 Posted by Shavo (2061 posts) - - Show Bio

@Captain_Yesterday: i understand he is the kid of the group but he barely acts like a kid and is trying to grow up too fast and i don't think this spoils it but he gets a lot of people killed in the comic cause of this

#5 Posted by Captain_Yesterday (807 posts) - - Show Bio

@KINGJAMES447: But that's the point, he needs to grow up fast in the world he's living in. But that's not easy or something that comes without consequences. He's seen what the world is like now and look at all the things that have happened to just him personally. Add that with the fact that he's a kid growing up and he's gonna have his spats of fearless stupidity.

in the comic he actually maturs and becomes a lil bad ass i gave up on the crappy Tv show after season 1 , spoilers confirmed my beliefs that the show is still crappy.

You might want to put a spoiler warning OP.

This. I mean look at all the guys who have gone crazy and committed suicide, become a cannibal, or senselessly kill other survivors.

who exactly has he gotten killed in the book? I've read every issue multiple times and yes he killed Shane but other than that I'm having a hard time thinking of a character whose death can be blamed on Carl

No I don't hate Carl. He does annoy me a little bit at times especially the television version. What I do HATE is tv Andrea.

I don't think there is anything I loathe more than her. Just thinking of her makes me grit my teeth.

He's among the worst characters on the show, and that's saying something

#12 Posted by JediXMan (31331 posts) - - Show Bio

I haven't seen season 3 yet, but...

Yeah, kid has some serious growing up to do. They should just tie him to the truck so he doesn't get anyone else killed or put himself in danger. Idiot was poking a zombie; who pokes a zombie?

Gotta be honest: I'd have been less sad if he died instead of Sophie. Sophie barely had any character development, but at least she didn't do anything to irritate me.

tvCarl is the Great Keyholder! The Opener and Closer of Gates and Such!

Perhaps they are waiting to spring the plot point that he is an earthbound avatar of the great Yog-Sothoth!

I read the comics...I know.

TV Carl will never be half the man Comic Carl is.

Aren't we supposed to hate Carl overall? He's like Damian but without the dicipline of Batman and Nightwing and without the badass fighting skills.

#16 Posted by Captain_Yesterday (807 posts) - - Show Bio

@DarkKnightDetective: I don't know that I'd say hate, but his purpose as a character is to cause drama/tension with his actions.

I love him, comic and tv wise.

He's gotten a lot better since season 2, so no, I don't hate him.

Dude.. comic Carl is a million times worse. He is ALWAYS f*cking sh*t up for Rick or is always in the wrong place at the wrong time. I hate the little psychopathic bastard.

what things has he messed up and what wrong places has he been in? He's saved Rick's life on more than one occasion

#21 Posted by YoungJustice (6919 posts) - - Show Bio

He is meh..how old is he, 10? He had to shoot his mother, kill countless zombies, and gets into gunplay weekly. I am really surprised he isn't going through PTSD..

Umm.. who has been shot twice by accident? Who almost got taken by scavengers because he didn't listen to Rick after going back for Morgan and Duane? Who continuously gives Rick sh*t by being a complete psycho? Who recently just snuck into a certain van because he thought a certain guy named Jesus was interesting? Carl. Carl. Carl. Carl.

If I recall correctly, Carl saved Rick's life once.

He was bad in Season 2. He's great in Season 3.

you can't blame him for getting shot...the first was completely Otis's fault and the second was the Mayor's fault for going nuts and shooting into a crowd...I do agree that it was stupid of him to sneak into the van

he pretty much saved it twice...once when he shot Shane and second when he took care of a near death Rick for days after they ran from the prison

Carl in the books is 1000% better than the Carl from season 2 of the show

#25 Posted by Strafe Prower (11892 posts) - - Show Bio

Not at all.

I was thinking "who's Carl again?", having not seen past since Season 1 yet.

And then I read the OP.

Stupid, stupid Fade. Always remember that spoilers tags are like subway restrooms. Everyone knows about them, but no one wants to use them.

as i said before i don't want to spoil it but for one he got dale killed the voice of reason in the group and in the comic he does kill some innocent victims and shoots someones kid not gonna say who and really ruins the teams plans a lot of times its like if you gave your 4 year old a loaded gun

The television version doesn't really do him justice, though I've found him more tolerable in the third season.

I'm sorry I just don't see it. Carl is just as much as a screw up in my eyes as he is in the show. In my opinion Carl is the only character out of the book that was done absolutely perfect.

Andrea in the comics is an independent badass; shes a whiny weak secondary character in the show

Rick has remorse for everything he does in the comics; In the show he is psycho Sr.

Lori was somewhat respectable in the comics; lying annoying drama queen on the show

Dale in the comics abandoned the group multiple times; He was more of a nicer guy on the show (I liked TV show Dale more than comics Dale)

And then theres Carol...... they shouldn't have even named her Carol. That is nothing like Carol. I was looking forward to Carol asking Rick and Lori to marry her! lmao

Shane? Because he got too many shots. I don't disagree with him on certain matters, but he didn't deserve as many chances as he got.
