    Default He's awesome! Irving Forbush aka Forbush Man Appreciation

    I don't know much about him but I like him that's why I created an appreciation thread for him because he deserves to be known more, especially that Not Brand Echh #14 one shot is coming on December 2017!

    And honestly, if other fun characters were given an ongoing solo, Forbush Man deserves to have one too.




    He's awesome and let's have some fun! :-)

    DUDE!! If i were a staff writer at Marvel I would totally figure a way to bring back Forbush Man in the 616!!

    I don't know if you read it but that first imagine you used is from Next Wave which had an issue featuring Irving Forbush and characters from Not Brand Eech and parodies of several different comic book artists.

    Also, don't forget that Ma Hunkle over at DC wears close to the same suit

    If Marvel ever does decide to reboot their entire universe, I'm hoping that Forbush Man is the agent of that reboot. Maybe with Willie Lumpkin.

    I'd love a Markandeya (from Hinduism) moment where, in between cycles of creation, Lumpkin (the only mortal so survive) is wandering through the cold, icy, swamps of this in-between world only to see a strange pot-headed figure, the avatar of the new age to come, sitting under a sign saying "Not Brand Ecch!".

    Spiritual enlightenment and hilarity ensues... cue bad laugh track.

    Yeah, they swapped the dates around. It was originally meant to be December, according to the original announcement, but then it turned up in the Nov solicits. The other five one-shots were all originally advertised as November releases. But Dazzler wasn't solicited. She must've swapped places with NBE.

    "Who says a comic book has to be any good?" That's Not Brand Echh's motto.
    Featured in this issue of Marvel's hilarious parody book are the origins of the Mighty Sore,

    the Inedible Bulk

    and Charlie America.

    Featuring the talents of Smilin' Stan Lee, Jolly Jack Kirby, Gary Friedrich, Marie Severin, Roy Thomas, and Tom Sutton.

    The character should then totally team-up with the likes of Slapstick, Deadpool or Howard the Duck IMO.
