    Default What color should Two-Face's face be?

    The talk on the other thread about Two-Face's injures made me curious.

    The scarred half of his face has been shown a variety of different ways and colors over the years. What color scheme do you think suits the guy's injuries the best?

    I'm indifferent but the bust coming out this week makes a pretty strong case for green.

    Green feels classic for me, but really, I've enjoyed it portrayed in various colors, a lot of different ways.

    Personally, I hate it when it's drawn or colored to look like realistic scar tissue. It just taks the fun outta the character.

    I prefer him realistically scarred with no hair on the scarred side.

    I also prefer him in normal suits instead of half/half, but whatever.

    I think it depends on the artist, certain artists just make certain depictions work for me.

    Yes, it would really be a shame if they took the "fun" out of the tragically mutilated abuse victim with severe mental problems.

    Like a reddy/pinky scar tissue. I really liked Lee Bermejo's take from his and Azzarello's Joker one shot a few years back.

    I don't have one definite answer for this. The green fits one style, and the red/more realistic looking one fits the other. I've never been into the half/half suit, though. It's pushing the duality theme a bit too far, maybe.

    EDIT: Yeah, Bermejo nailed the look. That's what I would've liked to see in The Dark Knight.

    Never liked the green. Some artists can make it work pretty great, like Bolland, and whoever drew his Golden Age appearances. I don't need him to be realistic- I don't think anyone wants that- but at the least, make some sense, y'know?

    My answer: Continue to leave it open to artist interpretation and artistic license.
    DC discarded their history, and now has none. DC will always be in the shadows of their past work.

    I heartily disagree.

    If anything, Two-Face should be the LAST character in the Bat-mythos to be made "fun". With Joker and Penguin and co., there's at least the precedent of the Silver Age. Harvey was always depicted as a tragic victim of circumstances ever since his first appearance, and in some respects, I see him as the most realistic, human character in Gotham.

    (Besides, ten times out of ten, from what I've seen, "making him fun" equals "ignoring the fact that he's half-good entirely". Granted, that average remains at a healthy eight-and-a-half-times out of ten even when the comics are trying to be grim 'n' gritty, but it's better than nothing.)

    But there's also room for a fun, hammy Two-Face in the DCU. It's just not Harvey Dent. May I introduce you to George Blake, AKA Two-Face IV?

    The only one I don't like is green. He looks half martian with the green.
