    Default Bendis is gone, can we kill the Hood now?

    Fair question, I think. Let's face it, Parker Robins doesn't work. He would have been consigned years ago to Poochie's homeworld if Bendis hadn't gotten obsessed with trying to get him over. It never happened, it never will, and frankly having him positioned as a major threat to Doctor Doom is pretty unconvincing. As a treat for long suffering Avengers fans, can he please be killed now?
    You're like Witches in Salem. Just fuel for my fire.

    I'd prefer not to kill him so much as revert him to the character Brian K Vaughn actually created in the first mini series. That character was a good read. The Bendis takes on him have not been.

    Blow up his home town and leave it a giant pit.

    No, he's one of the good new villains. He doesn't deserve to be killed just because Bendis doesn't know when to stop.
    Just give him some time off and let somebody else write him.

    If we have to kill the characters Bendis used too much, I'd rather begin with Kitty Pryde and Norman Osborn.

    I was just going to say that. I loved the first Hood mini before Bendis got a hold of him.

    Yeah. My introduction to the Hood was in the Beyond mini-series, by the late great Dwayne McDuffie and Scott Kolins, and it was great (I LOVE that mini-series). Then Bendis decided to make him Kingpin light by having everybody job to him, just to show how big and bad he was. It was really pathetic. I don't know if he can be returned to the character of old, but maybe something else. If I was going to wish dead every character Bendis ruined, the Marvel Universe would become a very barren place indeed.

    Peace

    It's not the Hood's fault that Bendis didn't really get his character, as created by BKV. Although I do give Bendis credit for upping his profile; I may not have liked all his decisions, but characters like the Hood and Noh-Var - not to mention Luke Cage - are more well-known because of him. It's nice to know they probably won't be fading into obscurity anytime soon.

    Personally, I'd love to see the Hood start a new Skeleton Crew with a bunch of scary/demonic criminals.

    -Pav, who doesn't get why people who dislike a character want to make sure nobody gets to read about that character...

    I have to say of your only exposure to the Hood is through Bendis you need to check out the first mini by Brian K Vaughan and Kyle Hotz.

    Yes, please. Also make it look like a beloved X-character did it (whether they did or not)

    This. He had enormous potential, but Bendis got way too excited about him and morphed his personality to fit his own story.

    EDIT: I was originally under the impression he was meant to be a top underdog villain, similar to Shocker (he'll kill, but it's low on his list and it really is just about the job/money). Instead, he was pushing around the Wrecking Crew, going toe to toe with the Avengers, and hanging out with Doom and Loki. Thanks, Bendis~

    Death ultimately feels pointless in comics at this point.


    I liked Bendis' Hood, because after getting beat down he'd rise up to become a major threat again.
