Didn't know if anyone posted this yet. It's from Newarama
DIrishB said:Did anyone notice that for the most part Bendis and Bagley's version of Ultimate heroes usually looks like their 616 counterparts (Spider-Man, Daredevil, Blade, Silver Sable, Black Cat, Dr. Strange) while the villains look vastly different (Green Goblin, Electro, Shocker, Rhino)?
Though, some look exactly the same (Kingpin, Elektra, Doctor Octopus, Venom, Carnage).
Nevermind, that theory kind of went right out the window.
TheManWithoutFear said:I'm not excited about USS at all... and I had a bad dream that Ultimate Deadpool only gets a small cameo...
ourchair said:Bagley's art looks fine as always but that concept art is rather uninspired. It looks so much like the original Silver Sable it hardly warrants being used as a promotional tease on comic sites.
You speak the truth, my friend.Goodwill said:I don't think that the appearance matters all that much. We should really judge her on her character, you know? That's what I think we should all go by.
Exactly.Goodwill said:Yes, we leave that up to Vuaghan, but Bendis has struck gold, in my opinion, with his new rendition of such characters as Aunt May and Gwen Stacy. Those characters stick out only because their attitudes have been modernized and such... If that's what's being changed then I see the Silver Sable being, at least, a person with a different attitude than her 616 counterpart. I don't know, though, I didn't know she existed until that MTV Spider-Man show. I don't think that's something to go by, either.
To be fair to Bendis, he's only incompetent at Ultimatizing from a plot point of view and not from a characterization point of view, something he's excelled at since he was but a starving ramen noodle eating indie comic creator whose art stank.

And, I think since Black Cat took a whirl at Elektra, Silver Sable should too. :lol:
DIrishB said:Thats a decent idea. Maybe a Kosovo resident, who, like you said, lost her parents (or some member of her family, maybe even a lover?) that drove her mad batty so she's become a vengeful, cold merc.
Hawkeye101 said:Yeah, and then duke it out with Elektra! Naw, I don't really know what Bendis is going to try with her, but a bosnian character is long overdue.
