Well, that was a hell of an ending to an issue.

I've gotta say, I love the Purple Man as a villian. Not evil, just amazingly self absorbed. Of course when your ability is that everyone does whatever you want how can you not be. There's what, 2 non-artifical characters that can resist him (DD and Doom)?

we must discuss the renisance of this classic foe.

Well, I know nothing of him, save his powers. So has he always been purple, or was that caused by a freak accident or something?

Dude, thanks a lot. Now I know more about him. The only other time I read anything with him in it, was in the "WHAT IF: Jessica Jones had become an Avenger?".

Hey, is that why Luke was staring at him in #1 of NA? Because Luke had a relationship with Jessica Jones? I don't read Pulse or anything with her, sorry. :(

I loved him in Emperor Doom man, though I don't remember him almost diyin. Guess it's time to re-read that bad boy.

With his powers he can pretty much get away with anything though, he just needs to tell people to screw off, and hope he isn't taken too literaly.

Haven't read too much on Purple Man. I've only read DD # 4 And MTU Annual # 4 [?]. But aside from Dr. Doom, the vilain Kingpin has also been able to withstand Purple Man' Purple powers. Too bad Purple Man can be stopped by earplugs or a well-placed sheet. Hmph.
