Marcus Cole, Statesman, World War 1 vetran whose lungs were damaged by mustard gas while fighting in the trenches, avatar of Zeus, and the Captain America/Superman of the now defunct game City of Heroes.

When the game introduced more tightly plotted story arcs as end game content, and one of them was called "who will die?" perhaps it should have been obvious that the city's greatest hero need to make way for YOUR hero... I want him back (though he would probably like to stay dead), because it would require the City of Heroes IP to become active again, I'd love the game to come back, but I'd be happy to see the signature heroes adventures in comic form too.

So with that in mind I share an adventure from the comics, the first time Statesman died, and came back.

Since a bunch of people here are probably going to go with Gotham, I thought I'd tap another one of my fandom interests for this post...

I'm not particularly sure of when I got into My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic - all I recall is that it was somewhere between the end of Season 3 and the beginning of Season 4. Animation outlets wouldn't shut up about it, all my friends on the 'net were into it, blah blah blah. Long story short - watched it, thought it was alright, read some of the fanfic, started liking the world of Equestria a whole lot more.

Let's get something clear here: this show isn't the second coming of Batman: The Animated Series (which, in any case, would be Gargoyles), but it's got potential. At least, more potential than the previous generations of My Little Pony did. The villains aren't allowed to really cut loose, since it's a kid's show and everything (and a lot of the more adventure-centric stories have seriously bad plot holes), but the writing staff of both the show and the tie-in comics managed to infuse their villains with enough personality and unique character designs to make up for it.

MLP: FIM is the kind of series where the line between "villain" and "jerk" tends to become rather blurry, and I have neither the patience nor the space here to list all of the characters who belong in both categories, so I think I'll go with the ones that grabbed my imagination the most.



(Sidenote: I like to imagine that there can, in fact, be an in-universe situation where all of these chumps will happily hang out together.)

Four legs bad, two legs badder! )
