These days in pop culture it’s Marvel Comics’ world and the rest of us are just possible LMD’s. Regarding one of their rare missteps my script doctoring of Marvel’s handling of Foolkiller continues with Part 22. Wonder what all this is about? FOR PART ONE CLICK  HERE 

Foolkiller (Greg Salinger) attempts to end the reign of terror of the Scavenger of Atlanta, at that time still on the loose following the hurried wrap-up to the 1970s run of the original Man-Thing series.

FOR PART ONE CLICK  HERE 

Our anti-hero Foolkiller (Greg Salinger) ends his run with the dynamic non-team called the Defenders this time around. Valkyrie’s vendetta against the Mandrill is center-stage as is that mutant villain’s vendetta against the Defenders, Daredevil and his own parents.

The lives of millions of innocent people are at risk in addition to the Mandrill’s actual targets. One last reminder that, though Foolkiller’s awkward moniker may put off some readers, it’s based on the figure from 19th Century American folklore.  Continue reading

My alternate treatment of Foolkiller (Greg Salinger) in The Defenders # 90 will deal with the funeral of Hellcat’s (Patsy Walker’s) mother and with Daredevil rejoining the Defenders since Matt Murdock is now part of Nighthawk’s (Kyle Richmond’s) legal defense team. The Mandrill and Fem-Force strike again as part of that mutant villain’s plan to revenge himself upon the Defenders, Daredevil and his own parents: everyone he blames for his setbacks.  Continue reading
