The Rocketeer and The Bulleteer



I enjoyed the Seven Soldiers event from DC a few years back.  Grant Morrison's series of mini-series which introduced and re-imagined several characters and was filled with interesting concepts and plot twists (and a few dashes of incomprehension - it was by Morrison, after all).  One of the titles I liked the most was The Bulleteer, which I thought was a cool update on one of the great classic super-heroes.  Some of the Seven Soldiers have found homes on the New 52 DCU, and I hope The Bulleteer will find a place to shine, figuratively and literally.  I think she has shown up in the background a couple of times, but what she really needs is a permanent home - Birds of Prey perhaps?

The Bulleteer was the ONLY part of Morrison's "Seven Soldiers" that I enjoyed.

Hey Ross,

Are you aware of this website that links to free domain vintage comics?

It is too much fun to read some of these old titles. Remember as a kid in the comic specialty shop, when you wouldn't even dare ask the manager to take down that 1936 issue of What?ver #3 to look over it, cuz it was worth $1,000 dollars. Well now you can read it online. Hope you can use it for future vintage style covers.

Except The Bulleteer can't fly. her only power is super-hard skin. She runs to the scene of a disaster. Some cameo appearances had her flying, but ASAIK that's incorrect. Clayton Emery
