Im gonna go on a rant here. One of my very first purchases back in 88 or 89 was the Complete Frank Miller Batman, which had Year One, Santa Claus wanted dead or alive (one shot) and DKR. All in one hard cover black leather book that sold for $30. Someone stole it, and I'm furious, but anyway. I love them both. To this day I love them both. DKE tho, back then was just a master piece. It was written during the cold war, Ronny Raygun was just president, and people were still kreeped out by the idea of a nuclear war. The book itself meant a whole lot more back then. To also see Superman working for the government was a creep idea because of the cold war spy ideas and what not. Plus Batman was just crazier it seemed in the book. It was so much more adult oriented then anything out there other then Killing Joke, and Arkham Asylum. It had more meaning to the readers then, then it does now. I can see how it is, in it's own right, out dated. Still DKR is my all time favorite. I have some new favorites, but reading DKR was just creepy is so many ways. Somewhat like the very first Ultimate X-Men story by Mark Millar was modernizing the Mutant World and turning Magneto in a terrorist. Blowing up Parliament, sending videos of himself like Osama did from a cave. Just creepy when you consider it was written before 911. DKR was my vote only because of the response I felt when I read it. I wish they would have a put a "Tie" option because Im sure there are a lot of us who would have liked to put it down as such.

WOW my top 3 are actual top 3. just not in the order I would put them. I'd have Uncanny X-Force at 1, Enemy of the State at 2 and Oldman Logan at 3. I figured Oldman would win tho. More people I think read it, even the the praise for Uncanny X-Force was pretty crazy. Oldman was getting a lot of high ratings too, but Uncanny was get legendary talk about it, and it's true. That run was perfect except for the last story, and it was more the art then the story itself that brought it down.
I already got DKR and Year One done pretty damn well too. Now I just need Killing Joke and Old Man Logan. Oh wait. That's Wolverine. SO WHAT!! I WANT OLD MAN LOGAN AND I WANT THE DC ANIMATORS TO DO IT. Marvel Animation pretty much just sucks.
I could see him as a Black Adam really easily. He could do a Deathstroke or a Lobo to tho.
Now that we know Apocalypse is going to finally get his screen debut. Who should play him. I'd like to see Ron Perlman. He's got the voice. He's got the acting cops too. He's versatile. plus he's got that huuuuuuuuge mouth. Why not?
When I first the news box for this, I figured it was going to say it was a movie about Apocalypse origin. I think that would be a very cool idea if they made a whole movie based on just his origin then set it up for an X-Men movie where every knew about the villain fully. Could work. Would be original too. Plus it's Apocalypse. What they could do with him. Show how he starts. Then a coupld flashes into some of the shit he's don't over the years. my brain is working overdrive on this concept. LOVE APOCALYPSE. I just hope they don't screw up how he looks. He must have the face from the comics. It can be a bit more grittier. Like the cover to the X-Men Alliance game cover, and he MUST have the tubes from his arms to his back. That is key. Now who to play him. I wouldn't mind Ron Perlman. He's got the voice and the acting chops. Plus that big ass ugly mouth.
