I read the article further, and Brubaker has plans for the Ox (and other old DED villains)! That's what I'm talking about, Marvel writers!
You can do it! Accept the challenge!
...and the damned Red Skull? Yet we don't disparage them as a hero comics culture. Nor the Mandarin, or Attuma, Loki, or Kang.
So there's no good reason at all for anyone to disparage the Ox, the Eel, the Owl, the Vanisher, the Flying Dutchman, Tiger Shark, the Faceless One, the Corruptor, Dr. Dorcas, the Piranhna, the Melter, Commander Kraken, Mesmero, or 98% of the others we no longer see. Not even Mr. Doll.
