Five reasons Why a Character Like Midnighter Works

#1 Posted by Dacnomania (264 posts) - - Show Bio
1; Combat Skills In head = cool Catchphrase
2; The dirtiest Fighter Around = some of the best one liners
3; Black is Back =  costume brilliant
4; He's gay & a macho Basta&^= He will F*&^ you up (extra fear level for all the homophobes)
5; For a Good guy he would make a really good bad guy

@Dacnomania: well i like him because of his layers.

He may be a bad a$$, but he is also a father, husband, killer, nice guy, superhero etc

usually when a character comes out of the closet writers try too hard to make him gay, and usually when characters are dark they are just annoying and mopey, but Mark Miller and Warren Ellis treated the character well, and it seems Paul Cornell will as well

@Superguy0009e:It's growing on me, I suppose. It just looks kinda bland compared to the old one, imo.

His current costume is terrible, imo. Apart from that, he seems cool.

I agree. It's not good.

I never read the character until Stormwatch launched with the rest of the DCnU, but he is great. I hope that the writer that takes over for Cornell on Stormwatch handles the character well.

The next writer is Jenkins, so you can toss that hope straight out the window.

I don't like DC Midnighter. Not yet.

@CitizenBane: Paul Jenkins is only providing a two-issue arc. Presumably to give the new ongoing writer time to work.

EDIT Peter Milligan is taking over with issue 9.
