    Default Bronze Tiger Appreciation

    DC Forum Appreciation Thread rules:

    1) No negative comments about the honoree of this thread. It's an appreciation thread, not a non-appreciation one.

    2) No negative discussion about any competitors of the honoree of this thread (i.e. John Stewart in the Hal Jordan thread). No ifs, ands, or buts. Find another non-appreciation thread to do that, just not here.

    3) No negative comments about other versions of the character. For example, if you like the DCU version of Cyborg, but hate the DCnU version (or visa versa), just appreciate the earlier version and keep your comments about the latter to yourself.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Please join me in appreciating Benjamin Turner, also known as Bronze Tiger!

    Welcome, one and all!

    And without further ado...

    I'm one of the probably few who's okay with them using the Brave and the Bold animal transformation thing in the comics - provided that it's used sparingly. But anyways;

    Retro315 no more. Anonymity is so 2005.

    Have you seen Bronze Tiger's appearances on the "Arrow" TV show? (I haven't yet...)

    If so, what did you think of them?

    Ben Turner is awesome. (Though I'm still not loving the whole Were-tiger thing)

    Loved him in Ostrander's Suicide Squad. How was his appearance in Red Hood? I didn't pick it up.

    All I know is he can turn into a were Tiger at will and is a were tiger most of the time. And from what I've heard his background is totally different.

    he's been in a few issues of Red Hoods and the Outlaws. Not really a fan of the title though.

    DC is missing a huge opportunity by not featuring Bronze Tiger in a monthly comic. after his appearance on Arrow i thought for sure he's be used more in the DCU. hopefully he'll be in the new Suicide Squad. and not as that horrible were-tiger thing!

    Isn't the Arrow version basically a thug?

    he's basically a hired assassin. though now he's working for Waller on the Suicide Squad. not a fan of the claws. though i guess they needed something to make the character stand out and the tiger mask might not work on a live action show.

    I really felt underwhelmed at his portrayal in Arrow

    I thought it was fine based on the way the show handles everything else.

    They kept his martial arts superiority. He is shown to be a superior fighter than Green Arrow on 3 occasions. But the character isn't given to much in terms of story and MJW only has so much to work with as a one note character.


    They've stripped away a lot of what makes his character great. The one thing that should be maintained with Bronze Tiger is his incredible Martial Arts skill. This is they guy that dominated Batman. Beat Deathstroke in h2h, and is one of the top martial artists in comics.

    Nowadays DC just uses him as a common thug to get beat down by Batman and it makes me sad.
