> ???-Did you read Simonsons Gilgamesh?He was a crazy "kill the monster on sight" charater.Or am I mixing up Walts take on Gilgamesh with someone elses?
He did love talking about killing monsters, and keep asking the others "will there be monsters?" And then Byrne had him get almost killed by the Lava Men. Which is kind of like the idea of Thor being put in a coma by a bunch of AIM Guys, only funnier.
And let's all be honest, he was one of the most pointless short-lived additions to the team ever, yet in less than a year, managed TWO tragic costumes (a feat probably only Wonder Man and the 3rd Spider-Woman can top). Gilg's best Avengers appearance was the one where Neut killed him. Then the recent Eternals series brought him back just to kill him again. Buh.
