I think his level of intelligence varies between continuities.

In the cartoon, he is honestly quite dumb while in the Marvel comics he could be perfectly intelligent, but was prone to rash decisions and pig-headedness. I think his speech impediment there was supposed to be some sort of viral glitch.

The Dreamwave comics seemed to start out with him in the cartoon's simple-minded persona, but from the second series onward he was more like his Marvel comics self. IDW also seems to have gone with the intelligent, but arrogant incarnation too.

Personally, I quite like both incarnations of Grimlock. His cartoon personality's one of the few things from the old cartoons that can still make me laugh, while I tend to find the smart, kinda brutal character more interesting to read about.

If Silver Samurai and Sunfire can't be used (I doubt Fox would let Disney use them), then what's the point?

To be honest, I don't see the problem with them not using the first two characters to be dropped from the roster. After all, it's not like Sunfire or Silver Samurai are major draws of the franchise.

They're not? Admittedly, I have no idea what this team's all about, but those are the only two characters that I know, and would draw me in.

They'll be going for a much larger general audience rather than for people who know or care who Silver Samurai or Sunfire are, as those two characters' fanbases must be pretty tiny.

True, but their fanbases are probably a heck of a lot bigger than the team's in general, as small as they may be... But then again, a lot of today's comic readers probably don't know who any of those characters are (SS and Sunfire included), so... yeah. Obscure team is obscure.

Yeah, Sunfire and SS probably have more fans than the rest of the team, but I doubt Disney's aim here is really to court a tiny niche of comics fans(especially given that we comic fans are a pretty small niche ourselves).

It's not really a project designed to tap into the characters fanbase, I'm sure the guys who pitched and decided to go through with this thing thought that there was something about the concept that could appeal to people who'd never heard of Big Hero 6 before.

Hulk has actually grown a beard before. I don't remember the specific issue numbers, but I think it was sometime before or after House of M.

I've just been wondering, would it be possible to have "creator" added as a category in the general information box of most character's pages on Comicvine?  Who created a character tends to be one of my main interests when I look at their page.

Would it be possible to combine the Christopher Priest and Jim Owsley pages, given that they're the same person?

I found his take on Wolverine in the story with the midget gangsters to be hilarious. That was some of the funniest satirical comic book dialogue I've ever seen.

Well, the recent issue of the Initiative has explained her heel turn.
