Swamp Thing and Gargoyle



The Gargoyle is one of those Marvel characters that I always hoped would gain more popularity and wider recognition.  I love the design of his look and like that he is not your typical 20-something aged hero - his advanced age gives him a unique perspective.  I haven't seen him getting much use lately and hope he can find a new home in comics again.

'Cept for the wings Gargoyle looks and awful lot like Etrigan, The Demon...

Pretty cool combination.

Well, now that Marvel is a member of the Disney corporate family, maybe Isaac can get adopted by Goliath's clan.

Jack Kirby based Etrigan's face on a demon mask from Hal Foster's Prince Valiant comic strip. The Gargoyle was probably inspired by the same strip.

Now that'd be one... heck... of a team-up: The Demon, the Gargoyle, and Prince Valiant!

This needs to lead into a Swamp Thing/Defenders team-up

I loved the early 1980s Defenders run, with Gargoyle and Valkyerie. I always considered The Defenders a DC comics team that somehow ended up in the Marvel Universe.

Any chance of seeing the Gargoyle meet Disney's Gargoyles?

100 percent if you check the archives.

Ha! I was a big fan of this era of Defenders too, and I was in the minority (at least where I grew up) of those that generally preferred DC to Marvel. Never thought of it that way before, but it make sense.
