Seriously- if you have someone on your payroll whose job is to deal with the Punisher (and having him do it by keeping the Punisher pointed at your rivals instead of you is a fairly elegant way to handle it after the umpteenth assassin fails) then you damn well better pay the guy well.

If this means we're done with Parker Robbins forever, I'm down. At this point his gimmick is he's the guy who *can't* be Wilson Fisk and why do you keep asking him to try?

He really is this schmuck who keeps getting ambitions and powers way bigger than his capability to maintain them. He's stuck in a gain-loss cycle that never ends up well, and at this point anyone in the criminal world should indeed consider him a failure and a joke at trying to be a leader. He doesn't have the brains, talent, or follow-through to even be a guy like Fisk who always picks himself back up after a setback.

I mean all supervillains lose regularly, but he wants to be a criminal -mastermind- or to run an -empire- and that takes a certain skillset he lacks in depth. The Hood needs to be like, a minion, or maybe, at best, part of a small team, rather than running it for a while. But his ego will never accept being not in charge.

His thing is supposed to be 'he's good at gaining power,' but yea, considering how easily he loses it, he's a liability.

Hm, you could play that up with people riding him *just* long enough to grab a slice, and then jumping before he drags them down.

Back when the Hood first appeared (starring in his own Brian K. Vaughn-written mini-series), he was very much not this vengeful ambitious idiot he's now become. He was more defined by his *lack* of big ambitions - a two-bit crook who found a couple of magical artifacts and used them to commit petty crimes. This Kingpin-wannabe has no resemblance to that guy, and this point, being shot by the Punisher feels overdue.

Yea, I can't say I've liked a single Hood story I've seen him in (and I haven't seen the first one).

Maybe I'll post the original series then, because there's a world of difference between that Parker Robbins and Bendis's wannabe loser version.

Unbearably maudlin.

Between this and the underwhelming ending to Worst X-Men Ever, I don't much care for Bemis' writing.
