Bullseye #1

"I think Bullseye views the world as his playground and his targets as nothing more than that — targets, playthings. He doesn’t see them as people and generally has zero compassion. Even when/if he recognizes his targets as people, it’s only so that he can learn about them and, for special cases, completely destroy their lives before killing them. We’ve seen that side of him before in “Bullseye: The Perfect Game” and he attempted the same on Daredevil a couple years back.
In this series, though, he’s out to kill, to inflict maximum damage. And while he’s picking off targets left and right, we don’t forget that these are people. They have lives, family, jobs. So, Bullseye might kill someone and not think about it again, there’s a network around each victim who are affected deeply by his actions. That will play into this arc fairly heavily."

Ugh. I know it's pretty much in-character for Bullseye, but seriously...pushing him so far into the Joker Zone is really not good.

The Joker Zone being the point whereupon it becomes more immoral and unethical for a hero to leave the character alive than to just freaking kill him already.

Except he's not in the "Joker zone" or whatever nonsense, since the people Bullseye faces have no problem trying to kill him. Hell, Bullseye has died twice!

So you know, they have tried to "freaking kill him already". The issue is that it didn't stick.

Daredevil also didn't regret killing him either.

I feel Daredevil had some guilt in the mini after he stopped being possessed. But it was "I did a bad thing and must accept it and try to do better" kind of guilt. Letting bad things happen to Bullseye is not the same thing as killing him.

Seeing more of this hasn't made it better. Bullseye being allowed to kill 12+ people with absolute impunity isn't really a story I want to read. I'm assuming the story explains how he was even able to get near an airport, let alone catch an international flight.

It crosses into the 'why don't they stop character X from murdering dozens of people' zone, where you wonder why the Avengers or SHIELD aren't tracking him down within 10 minutes of it happening. "Huh. A dozen people killed with paper-clips. Crazy. Welp, back to keeping an eye out for Doc Ock for me!"

Most people think Bullseye is dead, remember. Besides, the FBI and later SHIELD is after him. You really shouldn't jump to conclusions while reading out of context scans. You know what they say about assuming things, especially since you are wrong about SHIELD not caring.

I have a hard time believing that people would assume that. Bullseye has died more than once, has his logo engraved on his forehead and has been involved (voluntarily or otherwise) with an international organization KNOWN for bringing people back from the dead. It still breaks my sense of disbelief that he could just jump on a flight at JFK, personally, let alone with his costume in tow.

I'm glad you enjoy it, but I'm not seeing anything here that isn't basically continuing Bullseye's long trend of being a mass murderer with few consequences to himself or reaction by the rest of the MU. Sure, they occasionally give him a comeuppance, but these scans present it as 'LOL look at Bullseye murder these people, he sure is badass' as opposed to 'my god, Bullseye is a sociopathic monster'. Maybe that isn't the intent, but that's how it reads to me.

A common phrase in the first two issues is "Bullseye? I thought he was dead." So him being a long the living doesn't appear to be common knowledge.

As for him being able to hop on a plain to columbia, he does have connections and he's know for using aliases. The case of the costume, he puts it on when he arrives. Though other assassins and mercs have been known to go on flights with their costumes on(Like Deadpool or Taskmaster, so Bullseye wouldn't be the first.

I'm not sure what you mean by the rest of the MU. The FBI and SHIELD are after him, so is a rogue FBI agent. Beyond them, why would anyone else care that Bullseye wants to kill a Columbian drug lord? Especially since such a confrontation would either end with Zarco dead or Bullseye dead (..for a third time). Shotgun points that out in the second issue to the rogue agent who's after Bullseye.

Anyway, i get where you are coming from, but we have seen the latter reaction in the comic as well, not just the dark humor.

So, Bullseye is some kind of mutant or super at this point, right? Not just a really good assassin, anymore? Anyway, this series looks pretty terrible.

Nothing will happen to Bullseye permanently, and he'll be heading down the same boring road as a poor mans (and poor writers) Joker. Mass murdering with impunity and no one caring enough to stop him, but sure making a lot of speeches and protestations about how he's gone to far this time.

Having read the first two issues, i can safely tell you that you are wrong and the book has been great so far.

Didn't need to be rude buddy. You're still wrong though.

Especially with the Joker analogy, since the people going after Bullseye do want to kill him and have no problem with the idea of killing him.

So you really shouldn't make baseless assumptions over out of context scans.

This is utterly hilarious. I'm flat out told my opinion is wrong, not asking how much I've read of this series or Bullseye in general, or for clarification of what I mean or anything and my response demands a mod response?

I went and read the first issue, and no, its not great. I'm not wrong, it just isn't for me and I'm not alone.

I'm not going to apologise for what I said. I could have done it a different way, sure, but I stand by the general gist. I read it as more aggressive as it was intended apparently, which is on mW and I own that.

Heck, going purely by the comments in this post his opinion is wrong however, and I read his comments as not liking that but specifically calling me out. Which to be honest I've never felt particularly welcome here and can find it frustrating and lashed out.

Eh Hood likes to think his opinion matters while adding negative response of "Your wrong!"

Preaching to the choir buddy, preaching to the choir.

I'm really enjoying this miniseries so far, especially since Bullseye's target seems to be just like him. I also love that the second issue brought back forgotten Daredevil villains, Shotgun and Bullet. Name aside, i always thought Bullet was pretty cool.

I also loved the back up story I'm the first issue by Bullseye's original Creator Marv Wolfman.

I also love that they brought back Bullseye's agent from "Bullseye: Perfect Game".

Watching someone murder dozens of random bystanders for the lulz isn't to my taste. (Why does anyone even hire him anymore unless they want a massive, public bloodbath?) Since two deaths and paralysis didn't take, I suggest dismemberment and cremation next time.

He says he was brought back by the Hand. And he's not even working for them. Its the lazy writers way of saying "I'm resurrecting this character and no one can stop me."

Except he was working for the Hand for awhile. But the Hand have never been particularly good at keeping their resurrected assassins in their employ.

The Hand also tried bringing Bullseye back during the very event where he died (Shadowland), only for the heroes to stop him.

Lady Bullseye helped the Hand revive him in their next attempt, which was successful.

Its in character for Bullseye to be completely ungrateful. I remember when his paralysis was cured by adamantium infusion by Lord Darkwind. Bullseye was, "So what? I get paid money." XP

But you'd think the Hand would know better. Its like their zombies do all their thinking for them..

Hmm... what madman gave Bullseye a miniaturized railgun with ammo shaped like paper clips?

Oh he's causing all that damage just by flicking paperclips? Are they magical paperclips? No? Then I don't think anything on those panels would happen. Heck it would probably be difficult to puncture an ambulance tire by jamming a paperclip in it, let alone throwing one at it.

I know. I know. It's a comic book. Something about trying to make characters like Bullseye seem like major threats with stuff like this has always bugged me.
