    Every once in a while a company will take a perfectly great character and spin it a bit to make it edgy and contemporary. Sometimes that spin sucks, hard. What are your worst character remakes?

    5 off the top of my head:
    1. Electric Superman. What the hell was DC thinking turning Superman into an electric speedster? They then made it worse by turning him into TWO entities: Red and Blue.
    2. Knightfall Batman. Basically Batman in an armored suit with a gun. Same level of crazy. A part of me wants to believe that DC meant to kill off Bruce but didn't have the balls for it.
    3. Armored Daredevil. DD's identity becomes public, he fakes his death, and dons an armored razor costume. This is what happens when you don't have Brubaker writing DD.
    4. Scarlet Spider. Of course the Clone Saga needs to be brought up. The story convinces Parker that he is actually a clone and should go raise his unborn child. Leaving an unfunny and angsty version of Spider-Man to deal with things.
    5. House of M Hulk. Hulk decides to hang out with Aborigines to control his dark side. Woooooo!

    The most recent incarnation of Venom a la the Thunderbolts ... sure it's way more violent, but seems to be way over the top (well, mostly)

    What the fuck...
    Scarlet Spider rocked. He wasn't a "Remake". That was a new identity for the clone.

    Anyone other than Eddie Brock as Venom = Fail though.

    have to go with the rulk on this one. Loeb is a sling blade retard of a writer. the book started off decent. neat new take on the hulk character. he was smart and more mean than green hulk. but seriously how the hell did he take out thor? you cant pick up the hammer in outer space. you still have to be worthy. and he kills people left and right so how can he even be worthy?! all we got was a "oh no gravity so i can pick it up". :ugh: i dont see how people can buy into that stupid ass story

    I could see Punisher as Cap, mostly because he's down and dirty and people need killing, and won't question it if Captain America is doing it :o

    As much as i'd love to have seen a decent take on a Wolverine/Batman character, they just faggot'ed him up massively. Fucking shit sucked :hs:
