Bad-Ass Dudes and She-Hulks

Let's accentuate the positive today!

Deadshot makes both the Character and the Costume Hall of Fame for his bad-ass self. He belongs in the Character Hall of Fame because he's freakin' Deadshot! End of discussion!

He gets in the Costume Hall of Fame because he wears white trunks on the outside of his costume and yet it doesn't look like underwear - only he could pull that off. Not the trunks, the look. I don't want to see any guy pull off his trunks. That's not what we're about here.

She-Hulk is 50 different kinds of awesome because she was invented for no other reason than to safeguard Marvel's trademark. Yet, despite the high probability of being a throwaway character, she has been a consistent character in the Marvel Universe for over a quarter century, not only through three reasonably successful solo titles, but as a member of the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, Heroes for Hire, Fantastic Force and S.H.I.E.L.D. As comicdom's ultimate over-achiever, She-Hulk gets her well-deserved place in the Character Hall of Fame.

And leave us not forget the reason we love comics to begin with - Suggestively homoerotic dialogue! :

This is great dialogue. Awesome. Are we shooting a gay porn movie (hello, Googlers!) here?

And before you rightfully assume I'm being adolescent here, check out the title of this issue:

They make it too easy. They really do.

Deadshot needs to be acknowledged just for being:
2)Named "Floyd".

Anyone who can be awesome despite the name Floyd deserves everything you can give them.

And, he's back. In familiar badass the way-he-should-be character. I wasn't worried, really. Honest.

God bless Ostrander.

God bless Ostrander indeed. I may embroider that in a sampler.
