    Default Death's Head Appreciation

    death's head 1.jpg

    One of the most unique characters ever to grace the pages of Marvel Comics, Death's Head, the freelance peacekeeping agent ( don't call him a bounty hunter) was a fixture of Marvel UK.
    A recent spat of reappearances have re-awoken many fans love of the character.

    To quote "Simon Furman said in 2011 that the character was still popular because “he’ll never change or compromise or grow or repent or agonise like most comic book characters. He’s this unchanging, uncompromising rock that other characters bounce off. But you still kind of love him. Weird.” "

    Whether its his early comics you love or his recent appearances in Iron Man and Spider-Man, there is a lot to like about the character.


    So let's discuss him, yes?

    One of my favourite characters in Transformers, yes? Glad to see he went on to other things, hm?

    Will admit, as a kid, I made cardboard versions of his axe, mace, rifle and gun attachments out of toilet roll tubes and selotape. That dedicated a fan, yes?


    Still got a lot of love for the character after all this time. Always preferred the original green and yellow look to the later blue and yellow, yes?

    Actually grew to like DH2 even though others hate him, hm?
    I surrender to the Contest

    I'm not familiar by the character other than his un wavering lack of morals and going through with the job. I did however create a bio for him http://community.comicbookresources....ciation/page15

    I will say this now that DC is going for the tween version of Lobo I hope Deaths Head has his own ongoing or mini at least.

    I didn't grow up with Marvel UK but I checked out Revolutionary War and I think the Deaths Head issue was the best one. Give us a Deaths Head and DH II team up book Marvel!.....please?

    Yes. That would be awesome. The buddy book... with himself! I've long maintained that would be a winner.

    If they bring back any MUK character for a new NOW! book, it's sure to be DHII. In fact, considering some of the characters they've have a try with, I'm surprised it's not happened yet! Wasn't DHII a runaway success in the 90's? A victim of the cull, I reckon.

    This is now out on the Avengers UK page - see my signature below to see this FREE Fan fiction comic.

    IMHO it's probably one of the Death's Head stories in a loooong time!!

    It'll probably be DHII given the whole 90s motif, but I'll still hope for the original model.
