Really, Topless Robot? Really?

A list of villains that became heroes initially comes off as lazy.  I’m just going to say that up front.  I mean come on, really?

But I still gave this entry on Topless Robot a looking through for giggles.  I do like comics, after all.

But you ranked the Prowler above Rogue, Hawkeye, the Black Widow and Deadpool.  The Prowler.  I can say it over and over and it doesn’t make a damn bit of sense.

In fact, in your own entry, you label the Prowler as:

One of the many “angry unemployed” villains Spider-Man has encountered, Hobie Brown originally became The Prowler to steal stuff after getting fired from a window washing job. But Spider-Man gave him a talking to, he quit crime, and only prowled for good afterward.

Over Rogue, Deadpool, Hawkeye and the Black Widow.

The Prowler.

At least the rest of your list made some kind of sense.  Sure, you listed Songbird over Emma Frost and tossed in Morbius at #3 and even listed Taskmaster as a reformed villain which shows a lack of understanding of the character.

Jeez.

EDIT: A comment on this entry made an observation that I’m including here.

You should really include in this post that this list on Topless Robot, like all of their list entries, is not written by the Topless Robot top man himself, Rob Bricken, but by a roboteer I assume, Matt Wilson. The lists are always this way.

And she’s right.  Topless Robot is an excellent site with a lot of quality content.

  1. This reminds me of an IGN post I read yesterday that listed the top 25 runs of the decade. The list was okay, but I’m not sure they understood what a decade is, because they had items from two different decades in the article. They probably really meant last 10 years.

The lists are always this way. So without mentioning this and only calling out topless robot it would be like bashing Comicdom Wrecks for say, anything Casey writes, only worse because Casey is at least supposed to be a regular contributor 🙂

    Not that I disagree with your disagreement but it just seems unfair not to mention this.

  3. I was thinking when I looked at that list “when did Taskmaster become a good guy?” he’s a mercenary that only does whats in his best interest. I also enjoyed this bit in the Deadpool entry

    “He was initially an antagonist who attacked the New Mutants, but as the ’90s did to many a character *cough*Punisher*cough*, Deadpool gained a following, started showing up in a ton of books and was carrying his own as a hero soon enough”

    What does that even mean? Did the Punisher attack the New Mutants? I might be wrong but Im pretty sure Punisher did his stint of appearing in other peoples comics in the mid to late 70’s and was pretty established by the beginning of the 90’s so i Don’t get the relevance of any of that
