for the life of me, i can't figure out what you guys like about Manslaughter. he's just the crappiest character design i've seen in awhile. he's not even athletic looking. the guy's supposed to be a team-beater. at least with Mister X, they made him look somewhat serious.
look at this feeb. he looks like a hostess fruit pie character.
Supreme Power Nighthawk makes regular Nighthawk look like Bryant Gumbel.
I read and enjoyed Eric Larsen's Defenders series in the late '90s. It was good in a fun monster mash kinda way.

There are two different Defenders teams. Thinking of the two as the same team is wrong, despite their sharing the same book.
First, the quartet of mistrusted, EXTREMELY powerful outsiders: Dr Strange, Hulk, Namor, and Surfer.
And the quirky team: Nighthawk, Valkyrie, Hellcat, Gargoyle, etc. often with appearances by one or more of the originals (usually Hulk). The "New" Defenders fit here as well althouhg, they could have been called the New Champions as well.
This new series is really just Avengers V234.5.
