 I'm just feeling all wistful. Must be the weather. 

At one point, people believed him dead, and two people in particular cared enough to mourn him. Mystique, and surprise, Johnny Storm. 

The only ones who ever cared for him other than Logan, and they seem to be dead. Probably why he kept so distant.

In Daken #1, just a little scene to make you laugh:

And in Daken #3, wherein Hellverine shook things up a little.


And in Daken #4, it opens with:

I don't quite know what I'm trying to show in this one, but I guess my sympathy extends to this side of Daken that probably most people on s_d don't know about.

Redemption is easier with support.

Daken and Johnny make such nice friends.

Oh Johnny. Daken would've just broken your heart in the end anyway. Their relationship was kinda weird. I think it would've gone down a bit better if they had something more in common than both of them really liking sex. Still, cute scenes.

Mystique's relationship with him I get. The two of them could've been soulmates. (Except for the fact that Destiny's death made romantic!Mystique into insane!Mystique.)

Hey! I ignored all about this manly platonic relation between Johnny and Daken!

Though I doubt Daken would show up at Johnny's funeral.
For obvious reasons too but also because how many times the FF tend to die and resurrect.

Is Mystique still dead, btw? Cuz between her, Johnny, and Bullseyes, Daken really hasn't had any luck with his friends.

Something interesting about the way Daken handled all that is how much he sets it up so Johnny will be sorry for not being there for him. Can't remember if the fact he does almost the same thing to Mystique is what he planned or a result of the Hellverine messing up with him. It's so... awww Daken, you're such an attention seeking asshole. *sighs*

I so do not understand that flippant reply that cop was giving. Dude, considering the world you live in, when a women tells you about a man covered in flames looking into your soul you should goddamn believe her.

Goddamn stupid Marvel civilians rassen frassen ...

Daken #4 is MIA. The scans, that is.

The images from Daken #4 aren't showing, by the way.

I dunno. No matter how much they try to give him sympathy this is the same guy who'll kill people for shits and giggles so I dunno. And I still don't know why any any of the FF didn't arrest or throw Daken into the negative zone on their first meeting.

Funny how most of the recent scans here have been nothing but "spotlight: sympathy for daken". Prior to these i always pictured Daken as a sexy bastard (emphasis on B ) that was far from redemption. It makes sense that Daken has actually warmed up to a family of superpowered individuals, each one offering something that he never really had. Will that change him in the long run? doubt it. Will Marvel someday just forget the bond the FF and Daken made? Odds are yep. Do I want to write some slashy fiction about Daken and Johnny? Fudge yeah.

Wow, I am behind the times with Daken. Last time I paid any attention to him he was a skeevy perv who raped and killed people. When did the redemption path start, and how did he get to know the FF?

Huh... I bet Reed is kicking himself for making holographic phones, but everyone is into iPhones and such.

So does this make Daken an offical Marvel Jason Todd?

Maybe it's just me, but why is Johnny friends with a psychopathic, murdering slimeball?

1) Daken is dead? Or was? I assume he got better?

2) When did he and Johnny become friends? And how? Why?

They never handle mourning well. Aside from one UXM issue about Kitty and Peter, I can't think of a good issue off the top of my head.
