So were batman and the punisher...

Batmans super power was that he was really really rich...

the punisher's super power was that he was really really pissed off (and had the power to ignore gun licensing laws)

:D

The coolest more-or-less-non-super-power superhero is without doubt the Shadow. Actually, he is the coolest superhero anyway...I think, at least.

His weapon was the ultimate one: Fear! Oh, and deception. Mix them together, end you get more fear.

Actually the ironic thing is that the Punisher willingly broke the law to buy the guns on the black market.  The same gun suppliers who sold to teh Kingpin etc.

That and he'd steal guns from the badguys themselves....

Actually if memory serves, he was a regular guy who FOUND a jetpack.

The Rocketeer was a regular guy who knew how to build badass stuff. Like rocket packs.

I am a huge huge comic fanatic...  

Although don't ask me about DC, I know very little about DC, having grown up a "Marvelphile."

Bearfoot knows his comics!

BTW, if you really want to see a cool "Fan movie" of Batman check this out...

www.theforce.net/theater/nonsw/batman_deadend/index.shtml

Or if you just want to see Joker eaten by an alien... (well implied, you know how hard it is to kill the Joker, I"m sure...

Oh, the Shadow had hypnotism as a power.  How do you think nobody managed to see his actual face unless he wanted you too?

But yah, he was really cool.  I love the old classic radio shows...

Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men?   The SHADOW knows!

The coolest more-or-less-non-super-power superhero is without doubt the Shadow. Actually, he is the coolest superhero anyway...I think, at least.

His weapon was the ultimate one: Fear! Oh, and deception. Mix them together, end you get more fear.

Well, now we have discussed a bit about comic superheroes and the like. Of these, the Shadow is of course the coolest one. Another cool one is Mandrake . However, the most bad-ass, macho-swine, übercool hero of them all, who I mentioned a bit earlier, got nothing to do with comics at all (not that I know of, at least). I'm of course once again talking about Duke Nukem. I've never gotten my hands on any DN game after 3d, but still - he's just nice.

Now, I suddenly wanted to play Duke Nukem again. 3D and the old platform games. The platform games are classics...

Yes, they did, and it died a horrible summer movie death, as it diserved too. (I've only seen bits and peices of it.)

No, wait, wasn't that the Phantom?  (Very simalar character, save instead of the cool fedora and scarf, he wore purple spandex...)

Eh.. either way the movie I'm thinking about was pretty crap.  It starred Tim Curry that's all I really remamber about it...

Duke stole everything from Ash..

And you know how the next game in the series is going to be "Duke nukem forever?"  That's because that's how long it's going to be until they get it out.  It's been what, seven years now?  (They started with the Quake II engine...)
