Episode 43: Darkhawk #24

What can possibly be a threat to a dark and broody 90s hero? How about an even darker and possibly broodier evil version of him? That might about do it, but can host Nathaniel Wayne get through it in one piece? Only one way to find out.

  1. I’m pretty sure I met Darkhawk on a Marvel Universe trading card. He promptly became my favorite character because he was a DARK hawk. A dark HAWK. DARKHAWK. Aww yeah!!!

    Seriously, I don’t think I’ve ever read one of this guy’s comics. But now that you’ve acquitted this issue I know what to get for you the next time I’m rummaging through the cheap* bins.

    * Alan Middleton’s a liar. There are NO quarter bins left in America.


  2. I remember Darkhawk EXISTING, but I’m pretty sure I was always mistaking him for NIght-Thrasher. On Avengers Arena, a hard pass on the Battle Royale/Hunger Games rip-off, especially as it killed and replaced the superlative Avengers Academy and put its best characters in danger or in the grave.

    A note about Romita Jr.: I really don’t like his contemporary work. It seems too heavy to me now, and perhaps it’s a matter of the modern coloring. His best work was in the 80s on Uncanny X-Men and Daredevil, by far.
