sherkahn: Monarch from the Venture Brothers (The Monarch)
[personal profile] sherkahn posting in [community profile] scans_daily
The deathmatch wheel has been spun and someone was bored, I mean bold enough to make a comic out of it.
Comic Book Resources has the article announcing Hulk vs. Dracula.

Oh yeah, SPOILERS!!!

"The Hulk goes on a rampage - with all the world in turmoil and the heroes too busy - it's up to Dracula and his vampire nation to stop the rampaging monster."

Can someone comment for me? I've head-desked so hard I can't peal my face from the artificial wood.

At least the art should be interesting to look at.

Awesome. I'm only upset that it's squaresoft Dracula and not proper Gene Colan classic Dracula. But I'll take it.

Seriously, there was absolutely nothing about tux Dracula that needed to be changed. He's motherfucking DRACULA, people.

IKR? Cornell's Dracula was the nearest character we have to the classic pre-RTD series Master, and now he's been traded in for a character worse-designed than the John Simm Master. It makes me sick.

Except this Dracula is more up to date. His old look is outdated.

Sometimes Old school is just old.

Up to what date? The 1990's?

Try and tell me that a classic tux--something that's been in fashion for over a century--is somehow LESS timeless than the spikey armor and man-ponytail look.

I love the Worthy revealed so far.

" The Red Skull's daughter, heir to his evil! The Hulk, rampaging man and monster! The Juggernaut, whom nothing can stop! And.. the Grey Gargoyle, and quite possibly the Absorbing Man. Why the hell not? "

In-universe, it probably makes enough sense, but on a meta level it's a bit odd.

Grey Gargoyle is certainly an oddity, but Absorbing Man has near limitless potential, since he can absorb the cosmic properties any cosmic item.

He absorbed the properties of Quasar quantum-bands one time... okay he blew up, but he managed it.

Well Grey Gargoyle and Absorbing Man are Thor Villains so I guess it kinda makes sense that they're getting hammers.

Except of course Gargoyle's only current character attribute is horrible failure (Absorbing Man's too, if you think about it). It's such a pity, as he has that awesome mustache.

I agree 100 percent. The Worthy are looking awesome, except the out of place Gargoyle, and awesome Absorbing Manwho already has his own more than effective weapon.

Hulk and Juggs are easily my favorites so far.

Oh god this is going to be so awesome! Honestly, this just looks like fun. Been a while since weve had a nice huge throwdown just for fun in the MU, and Dracula and Hulk are just enough a ridiculous match to work.

The worthy are shaping up to be very impressive, choice wise. Except the Gargoyle, hes a little out of place. Strong, yeah, but not really on the level of the rest of them.

This seems like it would be a short fight.

Also, Dracula needs to go back to not looking ridiculous.

I'm saddened that there likely won't be a proper sequel to Defiance. it's like the story ended without the final chapter ever getting printed.

There's been better game series, but I'll always hold the PS1 Soul Reaver game close to my heart. Really, really liked what it had going for it.

Still waiting for anyone to bother telling MI-13 (you know, the people who killed Dracula to stop him from committing genocide?) that he's back. I really, really want Faiza to punch Cyclops in the face for that one.

That would be awesome. Marvel's (in my opinion) most endearing new character taking out one of its most insufferable old characters.

This could only be topped by her giving Peter Parker a wedgie. With Excalibur.

The point, from a business standpoint, is to create an event that directly ties into Thor and Cap, seeing as how both have movies coming out soon.

It seems the synopsis is that Odin isn't the true All-father, this Serpent guy is, Red Skull discovered this, Sin releases, and he may be the god of fear. Maybe.

Seems that's being ignored, or a retcon. I believe Fraction said the Serpent was under the World Tree.

...But that's also a contradiction of one of the most basic parts of Norse mythology - the World-Tree has a dragon named Niddhogg at its base, nibbling at the root, and an Eagle in its branches, with a squirrel running in-between to deliver insults to each of them.

How exactly has this Serpent been eluding Niddhogg all this time?

Oh, Fraction, you silly bugger...

I can remember just after Civil War, some tasteless joker on Wikipedia decided the next event would be called "Skrullocaust", in which everyone you hated in CW turned out to be Skrulls and were hunted down and exterminated by the originals. Not too far off from "Secret Invasion", in did seem slightly plausible at the time, given that it was claimed Millar would be writing it, and it had a fake statement from Joe Q about one of the Avengers going 'full-on Dachau'.

I bring up the whole dreary story, of course, because one of the fake tie-in titles for "Skrullocaust" was entitled "Penance vs. Dracula", which would have been very silly and odd. Perhaps this twin fulfilment of prophecy - first, a Skrull-oriented event, then a tie-in which amounts to nothing more than someone fighting Dracula - is a spelling of doom for the current direction at Marvel.

One can only hope.

So if it's Hulk vs. Dracula, why is the image of a roided-out Martian Manhunter fighting Elric of Melniboné?

How is that art of Hulk vs. Dracula? It looks like, dunno... an elf with fangs and an orc duking it out? I'm enjoying the coloring, but questioning the design.

I'm guessing they went for a Nosferatu look.

Dracula is a pureblood.

Still not seeing it, terribly sorry. Both this version of Dracula and Nosferatu have pointy ears, yes. But Nosferatu has those funky-looking squirrel insisor fangs, whereas the ones pictured are clearly canines and accompanied by a full mouth of other teeth. Also, freaking elf hair and sparkly dangling earrings made with disks of either silver of mother of pearl (which I now really want, omg) wtf. I'm not saying it's a bad look in and of itself (because it's not, it's very pretty), just that it doesn't exactly scream "Dracula" to me (unless it's a D&D version of Dracula or something, I guess? not a Marvel comic one so much, I think). Thanks anyways.
