When you think about it, both Hank Pym and Spider-Man are set up really well to be a supervillain, but they both try really hard to be heroes, even though they always get screwed. Why is this?

Because Uncle Ben.

This wasn't in a Spidey Super-Story, but related.

I guess, but when you get screwed every single time, you would think one old man starts to become less important. What about Pym though?

There was an alt-universe story where Spider Man was an assassin for hire. Pym built Ultron.

>> No.20876934

No, this is my point. Pym is pretty much the perfect example of a mad scientist type super villain. Why is he a hero?

>> No.20876937

Flex Mentallo style.

>> No.20876955

Because he has some psychological safety valves, like becoming Yellow Jacket.

It seems that he would be a perfect mad scientist but he has enough integrity to stop it from happening and just do something else for a while.

>implying that isn't the attraction of the character
That said, Richards is often the same.

>> No.20876973


Because he was introduced as a hero and comics will always succumb to the old defaults. Pym would have made perfect sense to be driven to further villainy in an attempt to prove himself, he's already got a reputation as a wife-beater who built Ultron, the Avenger's greatest foe. He could be a terrifying villain for the Avengers.

Similarly, I like the Riddler as a detective who's vaguely amoral but more or less on the right side of the law. Dude likes figuring things out! Being a detective sorta makes sense for him! But lol no he got hit on the head and turned evil again.

These comics were written back in the days when superheroes could still do exceptionally goofy shit and carry on like nothing happened in the next panel. I mean, they still do exceptionally goofy shit now, but these days it's attached to something called a "plot."

To be honest, wacky concepts do work. Look up say, Arkham Asylum: Living Hell for a story that makes them work. Humpty Dumpty is absurd in terms of character concept, but as a character he works. Doodlebug, Death Rattle, Junkyard Dog, etc. fit the same mold.

He was a pretty interesting guy, and an amazingly successful military commander.

I am guessing you are American or British.

>> No.20877409


Why would Americans hate Napoleon? Napoleon and the events immediately preceding his raise to Emperor are pretty much the only reason they're an independent country.

Nonetheless, a lot of Americans seem to regard him as an awful person.

>> No.20877423

Really? I am American, and most of us seem to regard him pretty well.

Hell, I'm a Brit, and I think Napoleon was pretty cool.

Sure, he was at war with us. A lot. But he did a lot of good things, and was a pretty stellar commander.

>> No.20877439

Not that I'm aware of. Far as I can tell, everyone just knows him as "that really short french guy".
>noone knows he was 5' 6" in french feet, which are slightly longer then ours.

>> No.20877561

When one looks at the reforms Napoleon made to his conquered territories, he was the closest thing to the benevolent dictator as possible. His only major flaws were trying to invade Russia and pissing everyone else off.

>> No.20877611

Because we hate all imperialists other than ourselves. Especially the ones who are obvious about it. And boy howdy, was Napoleon obvious.

Kind of facetious but also completely true, sadly.
