I Like writing with Gambler, but he's CONSTANTLY Turning his team threads into "Jean Lebeau and the Lebeau family power hour, Guest Starring Mercy! And Featuring Duchess and MR...Oh and there's some other dick weeds over there too >.>"
well to be fair, they used to be featuring other people that aren't around anymore so at least he's keeping with the times and willing to share his glory
The First of the Fallen he gets beaten so casually every time and his entire history makes it confusing when he was ever supposed to be considered a threat, he was a joke right from his first appearance but he's supposed to be considered some ancient primordial evil?
@jobbernos: well, like I said, he's had losses but they don't exactly count in the context you probably mean because they were part of the period where he was discovering new powers so yes he's been beaten multiple times but if you want to be technical, at his highest peak he never really had any stories so who knows if he could've been beaten...his second series was cancelled with the final issue being him reaching his peak, the next series after that followed his daughter instead and the fourth series had him go back down in power in the first arc
Makes sense, I mean let's be honest, it's not really that different a market then his usual fanbase. Content originally intended for kids that ends up appealing to older people who are then considered outcasts by society.
He has been beaten before if that's what you are asking.
by who and was it PIS?
well he was once "killed" by doing something so he couldn't live in the Green (I forget what) so he basically had to travel outer space to find other planets where the plant-life wasn't green but he was definitely beaten even if he managed to barely survive and eventually return...it wasn't PIS though, it was written by the guy who invented his powers in the first place...to be fair though, Swamp Thing has continuously gotten more and more powerful, so his early stories (like that one) don't really mean much anymore...his second series ended with him being the spirit of the entire earth and able to control all of it
