I don't mind it but sometimes it does feel forced

I think that accents are really important in comic books, especially if it deals with a character who is from another country because they make the characters truly unique from the other comic book characters. I really loved Rogue and Gambit's accents because it made both of them sound so unique and interesting. I also loved hearing Colossus' Russian accent, especially when he says "Da" in a way of saying "Yes."

Sure, if it helps enhance the identity of the character.

Like quite a few others on here - its mostly Rogue and Gambit's characters that I think of when it comes to accents. I read them with accents (not consistently but enough that as a kid I learned that "Ah" meant "I" and that "Dat" meant "That") and although initially found it distracting - find that it's a big part of who they are. Reading little bubbles with straight English just makes them both OOC sounding.

I would rather a bad accent than Old English.

The font characters speak in is also very important too.

Anyone remember Wolverine's accent from Spider-Man & His Amazing friends? He sounded French-Canadian.

Ahahahahahaha I actually thought he sounded more Australian. All the X-Men's voices seemed little off in their appearances in that show, but then again that's voice acting twenty years ago.

has anyone seen the Pryde of the X-men pilot? I could barely stand watching it just because of Wolverine's idiotic Canadian accent

Aaaaaaand 7 months later.... Wolverine's accent in Pryde of X-Men was Aussie, not Canadian. Ironic cause years later Jackman played that canuck.

Well am Scouse, and I have a very unique accent. So, yes. Accent is very important to me. And they can give more of an identity to the character you're reading.
