what makes a "marvel legend??"

Recommended Posts

Ok, ok folks, I'm not asking for the next wish list, line up etc.. (for that already has been done to death before). the question I've been pondering about & now I put to you is as follows : a LEGEND is a remarkable story/myth on an event or person, right?

So with that in mind we have a range of marvel characters, correct?, but why is it the main stream characters are flogged to death? ie- wolverine, spider man, fantastic four

Anyhow I digress, I'm curious as to what particular marvel character should be a marvel legend & why, no it doesn't mean a wish list like I said before.

For me, luke cage is one for being a hero of the late 60s/70s & all that jibe, shang chi for representing mainstream karate, thor for tying in viking/norsefolklore into comics

So with that in mind perhaps recall a story from a particular marvel comic that makes that character display legend like qualities?, hmmmm? deathlok?

A "legend" is exactly that. A "Marvel Legend" is a toy line that was intended to make money by putting characters who the company thinks will sell well. Including characters that will be flogged to death. And Union Jack. Any character can be a Marvel Legend and long as Hasbro (or Wal-Mart) thinks it will sell. I remember Luke Cage warming the pegs though at Toys R Us though. I don't think he even sold on clearance :p

Yeah nobody wanted anything to do with that POS Luke Cage. He was like emma Frost but uglier.

 

When ML started it was going to be top tier charcters in their most iconic look. Since then too man bottom feeder charcters like x-23 and Danger have been made. There are still tons of great characters to get to and looks of top tier characters to be re done in different costumes. There is no real excuse for Hasbro to stop making ML. If they were to get their act together there are still lots of figures to be made that could sell through to any Demo.

It's U-G-L-Y and it aint got no alibi.

 

I just don't like it at all. I think it's the worst of the TB figs (that comes to mind right now).

 

And I'm not saying Hasbro is better than TB or anything. I'm just saying TB wasn't perfect.

wtf?! this isn't suppose to be a pay out on luke cage lol

what marvel character fits the legends bill is the question here folks, would franklin richards be one? lol

I'm curious as to what particular comics ppl have read & why that particular character should be a "legends" figure, or to ppl here collect them any figure on the basis of how cool it looks, style & price???

this should be an interesting discussion, i hope? : )

I think the Retro Luke Figure was great. If they made the Modern one first alot of ppl would be complaining that they need the retro one. So as always you can't please everyone. I'm sure the modern Luke will get made by someone soon.

Post production. I worked with the editors and the sound people. But the writers were right next door. They write it here, film it in NC, and then ship the film back to us to process. I was the guy that delivered the final show to CW to air. But then I moved onto a different show (Pushing Daisies) and that got cancelled. So now I have lots of free time to dally on the interwebs.
