Opinions on Puck in Uncanny X-Force

#1 Posted by gotwillpower (679 posts) - - Show Bio

In case you haven't heard, the new Uncanny X-force team is Psylocke, Storm, Spiral, Cluster (Lady Fantomex), and Puck. I'm unfamiliar with Puck, and I guess now I'd like to know more. Sam Humphries has stated that, "What Fantomex was to Rick's Uncanny X-Force, Puck will be here." Is that even possible? After reading Remender's run, Fantomex has become one of my favorite characters of all time. I don't really see Puck doing that, but I'd love to hear what you think.

Please stop making short canadians tall.

I mean look at Wolverine now, he grew 6 inches and lost everything I loved about him.

I've always liked Puck. He is like a Wolverine parody, who is even better now that he is bat sh!t crazy and hearing demons.

I pretty much agree with this. Also I think the Fantomex reference is to the fact that he is relatively unknown to most except for the deeper ends of the fan base, but he's a potentially cool and interesting character that might seem underwhelming on paper, but could be awesome in practice with the right cast of characters to interact with and the proper writing at his back.

Puck was a founding member of Alpha Flight. He's a bad@ss acrobat and combatant... I don't see how he and Fantomex could be compared but I'll have to read it to believe it!

@papad1992: Well said. Although I was under the impression he was dead and in hell (no joke). I clearly missed something...

They have no use for that particular character. It's like the one of these kids is doing his own thing song. Puck just doesn't fit at all, he's a defective puzzle piece. I do like the guy, with Alpha Flight though.

Well initially I thought Puck was resurrected with the other Alpha Flight members that died during Chaos War but when I checked, he wasn't there! I'm confused as much as you are!! Maybe the first issue will reveal what happens... it has to actually!!

@papad1992: im guessing spiral might have gotten him out since she can teleport through different times and dimentions, well maybe anyway lool

There's a thought.

I've never been much of a fan of Puck, the last time I found him even the slightest bit interesting was during the original run of Alpha Flight. That said, some revivals can work out well (Iron Fist) so I'll wait and see.

I liked Puck since he was first introduced... I think he fits in with the idea of X-Force rather well, with the exception of not being a Mutant and having no super powers whatsoever...

I think he will bring a certain 'character' to the group...I guess we'll have to wait and see.
