this Deadpool cat is pretty cool. what other comic book heroes use a gun as one of their main weapons?

my terribly limited list so far is:

-Deadpool
-Punisher

Winter Soldier

Actually on many forms and applications I’ve seen the question where you check your age like this:

Under 12:___
12-17: ___
18-21:___
The Length of Project X’s Break From Comics:___
25-35:___
Fucking Old:____

No no…I’m in the “fucking old” category too. And I have recently gone back to comics (Savage Sword of Conan} after over 20 years without.

DJHT? Derek Jeter’s Hot Therapist?

Close…I think he’s using his alternate screen name, Derek542 or something akin to that.

so not only are we old, but we’re on a forum at 1 am on a saturday night. take the gun from your avatar and put me out of my misery.

No can do! It’s 5 PM on Sunday where I am but I should shoot myself because it’s a beautiful sunny day!

But I was also on the computer last night at 1 AM my time.

Why characters with guns specifically?

If you like Deadpool you will like Deathstroke from DC probably too.
Also, may I recommend:

  • The Phantom. They just restarted a series and I got through issues 1-8 (they are at 10, I believe) and it is quite good.

Another recommendation would be Batman’s idol:

  • the Shadow (old comic, an idol of Batman)

Others:
-Grifter (DC), look him up, good stuff.
-Red Hood (DC)
-Jonah Hex (DC)
-Cable (Marvel)
-Bishop (Marvel)

Hope that helps a bit,

Have fun getting back into reading.
