I respect Crossbone but I don't appreciate him.

He really deserves some respect for being so stubborn. I like the man with the mask, not to forget that he was trained by some of the best (i.e. Taskmaster for example) A serious threat without having superpowers at all. I'df like to see more villains like him instead of pumped up superpower generators.

His costume has a cool militaristic design and the mask tops it off with the brute look. He somewhat vaguely reminds me of Bane though

Hmmm, I never bothered to really notice that, but I certainly do see it.

I definitely appreciate him! He is Red Skull's right hand man and is more than capable of causing havoc on his own. Oh, and the Hot Topic near me had a Crossbones mask for Halloween, so I am guessing that someone high up likes him as well.

He's a good villain, I'll give him that, but he's nothing compared to his boss, he's just a punk for an even bigger punk xD

Crossbones is one of my favorites because of his character, unlike Red Skull and Captain America who have a ridiculous fighting style or fame for somebody to master. Crossbones is one of those characters who are basic and entertaining, even with the Thunderbolts, you would probably see more of him than just being a henchman.  
He is a serious threat despite what his position is.

He was awesome during the Masters of Evil series for the House of M arc. I loved how he looked there the best. It would have been awesome if he stayed behind with the Hood and other characters to make a stand against Magneto's forces.

Crossbones is my all time favorite hands on down and dirty villain. The guy just likes hurting people. I really want to see him back by the Skulls side doing some sadistic stuff.

Crossbones is way overdue for his own mini-saga. There can be so many interesting ideas for it. Personally, I believe Brock should be on his own for it and not have any support from the Skull, Sin or the current roster of the Thunderbolts. Maybe sending him to exotic locales like South America under a civil war or in a fight for survival in North Korea against generals who have a personal vendetta on him. I have more ideas but I would like to hear what you Crossbones fans think about this.

Is it just me or was Crossbones on one of the monitors when Doc Oc sent out a request for back-up in the latest ASM?
