I Really Hope Lord Death Man Comes Back to Batman INC
I was re-reading the first two issues of inc and it struck me how much fun I found Lord Death Man to be. Granted he's only a minor villain and a ridiculous one at that but Grant Morrison seems to love writing him. There's something bizarre, unnerving and hilarious about a giggling, psychotic, immortal and overly melodramatic villan. I really loved all his bold over the top lines like "Where are my fingers?!" "THEY'RE IN HELL! WHERE THE REST OF YOU WILL BE SOON!" and "Death is just a pit stop boys!" And my favorite which he giggles while mowing down helpless civilians "Death loves you!" I was thrilled when he popped up for a panel in Leviathan Strikes so hopefully he'll return for the new issues of inc. One can hope...
How about when he stapled his own throat shut? Such a cool villain, and one that only Morrison could write!
I know he will return, he is definitely the Professor Pyg of Batman Inc.
"You got that right! Welcome to the dead heroes club!" I love that line.
EDIT: And speaking of Professor Pyg, I have a feeling he will return too, given that Dr. Dedalus revealed that he was a former Spyral agent in Leviathan Strikes! And who could forget Son of Pyg?!
I swear, he's my favourite 'new' villain in, well, forever. It's part of the reason I'm such a huge Inc fan in the first place.
