Ragman and Thor



Even though he is not an exact replica from the comics, I have enjoyed seeing Ragman in action on the current season of Arrow.  The effects they use for his living suit are effective, if a little bit fleeting - I often find myself rewinding to see what just happened.  Again, not perfect, but it is still very cool to see characters like Ragman and Wild Dog get some exposure beyond the comics.

I thought you were going to make a comment about "Ragman-arok."

Personally, I liked it better when Ragman was just a patchwork equivalent of Batman. As I considered the post-Crisis supernatural stuff to be just a thinly-veiled rip-off of Todd McFarlan's Spawn! But, if the latter has to be considered canonical now, I can think of no sexier inmate to have in the mystical patchwork than Amora of Asgard.*

Although, again personally, I'd much rather be a patch on her costume!

@Cary: Two days in a row, you echo my thoughts.

Wow! Cary Comic and Bob Buethe... I figured that I was the only guy alive who preferred the original Ragman to the supernatural version.... Maybe we should start a club.

Never read the supernatural version, but I liked the one at rags and tatters

Wild Dog is getting some exposure in Cave Carson's new comic series, 'Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye'.

(Sorry; couldn't resist. I tried.)

@BG: I tried. But, so far, they're keeping their collective presence really...low-key.

Sorry! I couldn't resist, either. :-)
