I love that they brought back Bullseye's agent from the Bullseye: Perfect Game mini series. I find the idea that Bullseye has an agent that screens his gigs fascinating.

He seems braver than the last time we saw him though. He wasn't this mouthy towards Bullseye last time.

He can fire a paperclip with such force and accuracy that it punctures a tire from several stories up. Not to mention all the other paperclip murders. And not even like, paperclips that have been straightened and have pointy bits, but regular old folded, blunt ones.

Comic book physics.

You realize he's been doing this for years, right? This is also not the most unrealistic thing a comic book character has done anyway.

Yeah, but this ranks up there with "throws playing cards as weapons" as things that are occasionally hard to swallow without some sort of metahuman enhancement to back it up. :)

At this point I'm calling it that Bullseye is one of those special telekinetics with a block that only allows him to direct objects he thinks he's thrown (or "shot") with precise accuracy... But really he's just forcing them with his mind, because physics would never allow the bullshit he pulls off.

Physics wouldn't allow for a lot of things that happens in fiction.

Looks like Marvel is trying to turn Bullseye into their Slade Wilson. Again.

Except they aren't? Bullseye is just being Bullseye.

If you are going to complain, at least make it legitimate. Because right now, you're not making sense. In this issue(and in the back up story by his creator Marv Wolfman), Bullseye works and does like he always has, not like Deathstroke.

Oh, hey, look, now you've left a giant catastrophic multi-fatality homicide right in front of your agent's office. Cool work, Bullseye. This is why you keep getting fucking wrecked and killed and shelved as a character.

It's almost as if when a character is a sociopath who'll do anything, it makes nothing interesting.

Dunno why Marvel keeps trying it, though. Sabretooth, Carnage and God only knows how many others

They keep doing it because it keeps doing well. It's why Bullseye has stared in several mini series over the years, it's why Carnage has gotten several books over the years.

And if you bothered to read the whole issue, you'd know that this was part of his plan, Bullseye wanted to draw attention to his agent.

This wasn't random.

How exactly was it his plan?

And yes, they've had books, but does anyone remember them? Sabretooth, Carnage et all don't have a Judas Contract to their names because they don't work that well as foils, even in the best of situations.

Hell, Carnage's recent series was more about the people chasing him than Kletus himself

Read the issue, instead of just the scans and find out if you care. If you don't care, why are you complaining about it?

And yes they do, the whole reason Carnage got the current ongoing was because of how well his previous books.
Same with Bullseye, his Dark Reign book being my favorite, with "Perfect Game" a close second.

Also, it's Cletus with a "C" by the way.

I skimmed it in the store, actually, so I was wondering if you saw something I hadn't.

And frankly, I doubt anyone even remembers those minis, all things considered.

It certainly doesn't sound like you did, though skimming would also leave you without the proper context. Anyway, he wanted the rogue FBI lady on his tail.

Making a big assumption there. So because you don't remember, that means no one does? Are we all a hive mind now? No offense, but you made it clear you don't care about the characters, so your hardly an objective or unbiased observer.

IIRC, the FBI agent got onto Bullseye's agent because her boss gave her his address. Apparently the mass slaughter outside the man's office wasn't enough of a hint.

And it's not that big of an assumption. Have any of the stories really been referenced? Any positive critical reception?

Bullseye will do anything. Makes it hard to care, as a result or even be shocked by his actions, really.

If you're going to complain, at least make sure you know the context.

This was part of Bullseye's plan. It's why he even went there in the first place, since like the Agent said, Bullseye is only supposed to talk to him via phone.

Honestly, it's like people forget the scans aren't the whole story.

Never a big fan of a comic that basically creates a mass murderer that the rest of the Marvel Universe just sort of ignores. At least the Punisher is murdering heavily armed criminals...which still makes it hard to see why a lot of heroes aren't making a task force to stop him, but this? Even less so. I mean, it's not like it's hard to notice Bullseye in civilian garb: he's carved his logo on his forehead.

The 1970s:Bullseye killed like TWO PEOPLE! Daredevils hunts him down, refusing to rest until the killer is defeated, humiliated and jailed.

Today: Did you see the news? Multi-death accident, with a random killing of like five people including a cop by..paperclips? Daredevil: "Meh."

I wasn't a fan of Bullseye and this really isn't going to convince me to pick this up, I'm afraid.
