The Damned in : "Satan's Retribution!"




I read with interest that Hellboy is getting a cinematic reboot.  I had kept reading about how the Gulllermo Del Toro-directed films didn't make enough to warrant a third film, so I was surprised by this development.  Ron Perlman really made the role his own, so David Harbour has big shoes (nd a right hand) to fill.  This new take will supposedly be a darker version of the character, so perhaps the new take will strike a stronger chord with audiences.

The Damned made their first appearance way back in STF #176...

Wow, that's a long time to go between appearances!

A little guesswork here from ones I DO know. Joe Jusko Vampirella, Alex Ross Spectre. I'm thinking Greg Land Phoenix. Not sure of FFF or Hellboy though. Nice composite again,Ross!

Nice!

(although I'd probably have made Marvel's contribution to this team either Daimon Hellstrom or his sister Satanna, rather than Dark Phoenix...)

The Damned? Heroes connected to Hell? Where did you get my 10th grade notebook?!

Sorry 'bout yesterday's quote..."Not bad Ross you'll not only hit STF #1900 in about ten days but will hit #2000 about a month and a half before DC reaches #2000... Congratulations" I meant to say Action #1000, I just wasn't thinking straight and reading what I wrote.

A damned fine team!

And, Simreeve? There are actually TWO Marvel characters on this team.

As soon as I saw Vampirella in this, I thought the same as Simreeve, Satana. How about a team up between Vampirella, Satana, Elvira, Morticia Addams, Lily Munster and any other lass of that ilk?

The Spectre AND Dark Phoenix are part of the team?

I almost pity the forces of Hell.

Almost.

I'm surprised that you haven't done a team-up or brawl between Hellboy and Etrigan yet.

I second this.


And yeah, I'm not sure about the Dark Pheonix thing either
