Another nice looking figure from the DC multiverse line, this is the video game rendition of Deadshot-I think. Like I said, I’m not that familiar with the DC universe, but Deadshot is a character I do remember seeing within the limited amount of DC comics I had as a kid.While I like the classic look better, this one looks nice ,too. One thing that stands out to me about this figure are the folds and the overall puffiness of what looks to be a down jacket/vest.The gauntlets could have used a little bit of an accent but look cool for a 3 3/4 figure.I can’t stress enough the neatness of the paint on these Multiverse figures. No blotches or markings on spots other than where they should be.The difference in articulation is a welcomed change for a predominant Marvel Universe/G.I. Joe collector like myself, although I still prefer the latter. Nonetheless, a very cool line of figures!
In an attempt to familiarize myself more with the DC universe,i picked up a copy of DC Countdown To Final Crisis V.1 . Now i realize that this may not be the best of starting points seeing as how everything including the kitchen sink seems to be hitting the fan in this book and the immense cast of characters can become a bit overwhelming and difficult to keep up with at times,but it’s those same super cool and awesome characters that kept me from ever wanting to put this book down!Although most of these super heroes and villains are new to me (with the exception of The Flash,Batman,The Joker and Superman etc.) i was able to quickly get a sense of there personalities and tendencies due to the great dialogue used throughout this amazing TPB. I instantly took to and became a fan of characters like Jason Todd A.K.A. The Red Hood,Mirror Master, Trickster and Piper , The Suicide Squad…and the list goes on!The story is a perpetual roller coaster ride with side winding sub-plots,foreshadowing flashbacks and sometimes humorous dialogue that will make you chuckle out loud while reading. Props to DC!
