The Human Target Vs. Bullseye


 With code names like these two have, it was an inevitability that they would face off against one another sooner or later. Will the target that is famously hard to hit be able to evade the marksman that notoriously never misses?  I don't know but I do knw that I'd want to read about it!

Is Bullseye Marvell’s equivalent of Deadshot?

@Anon: Bullseye seems to be a mutant with a low-level of telekinesis that virtually guarantees he never misses on the first try. That's why he'd probably never require anything more than a single-shot firearm to kill anyone. Other than Daredevil, of course!

Deadshot, on the other hand, is just a well-trained marksman whose sense of practicality has led him to inventing a high-tech suit of armor with some kind of telescopic sight built into the left eye lens of his robotic mask. Plus, wrist-mounted machine guns on his gauntlets!

@Ross: yes! Excellent cover; excellent punny title! I don't why you've never pit these two against each other before this. But, to paraphrase Bob Greenwade? "Me likey!"

You missed the most intriguing aspect of this cover's story, Ross: Christopher Chance is most adept at disguising himself as the target of assassination, but what does he do when he's the target? I don't think DC has ever explored this question, and that's at least as good of a reason to read this story as having Bullseye as the assassin.

Nicely appropriate team up. I still think HT could be a great film or TV show.

Human Target was a great TV show (2010)too bad it was on FOX

Actually, the Human Target has been two great TV shows, the other being on ABC in 1992. (OK, maybe that one wasn't great, but I did enjoy it.) Plus, the character appeared twice on Arrow, and for my money would be a welcome guest on any of the current Arrowverse shows.

Good one! The Human Target has been a sadly underused character. The Fox TV show was great as well. It's too bad it didn't get a 3rd season.

More like a blessing in disguise.

Fun fact: among the guest "targets" on the 90s Human Target show was John Wesley Shipp, most famous for playing Barry Allen on the first Flash show just a couple of years prior. I think it'd be fun for Jay Garrick (who is still around, in Stargirl's world, and played by JWS) to make a comment referencing that.

@Bob: why not a take a "Chance" and e-mail that suggestion to CW personally?

@Anon@5:27: I might just do that.
