> There are indications in H4H#8 that the Grim Reaper seen in the storyline may not have been the real deal. The person who hired him is an ongoing mystery as well, so there may be more to things than meets the eye. That may not have even been the real Man-Ape.
Granted I'm not big Man-Ape or Reaper fan or anything, and maybe I would react differently if they were villians I considered "big", but I don't see what the fuss is all about. Man-Ape in a robe over his costume? It was funny. Seemed more like a sight gag to me then editorial wanting to disgrace the character. Reaper's head in the toilet? I can see the anger here, but Eric did come across as pretty badass during the whole arc. I know you probably won't ever see Doom with his head in a toilet, but thats cause he's Doom.
...by the bit with the Reaper's head in the toilet. It made sense to me. Misty and Colleen were using it as an interrogation tactic, one that I have seen used before. Seeing Man-Ape in the robe while still weraing his costume was a bit silly, however, but not overly so. I love H4H. It's the perfect blend of humor, action and seriousness all at the same time. Plus, the book is a fabulous dumping ground for lost 70's characters. I hope the series sticks around for a long time.
