[Happy Saturday morning! Here's another comics character I feel is underused.]
Today, Marvel comics’ Paladin.
He’s a mercenary who fights with both sides as necessary, and no one knows his background or knows his real name.
I love characters whose personal info. is unknown.
He’s a womanizer, in perfect physical shape, an expert marksman and martial artist, and is nearly always loyal to whomever pays him– even when it would be expedient to betray them: making him even more morally ambiguous and complex.
And he can make purple seem badass; anyone else would look like a walking plum.
And he can usually hold his own against superhumans. Cooooool.
