ITT: Mercenaries

1) Why are there so few comics about mercenary protagonists despite them being such a great storytelling engine?
2) Why the frick does Rose dress like a pirate? If it's supposed to be a privateer thing, that's not the same as a merc, so it's kind of a clunky motif.
3) Frick off with the "hurr hurr hmong" thing. It was literally NEVER funny.

      Bitch, the frick did I say?

      >Marvel has Deadpool and I think he poisoned the well
      That's nonsense. So Marvel has a popular mercenary character, so people think they have dibs? Even I don't think the general populace is THAT brain-dead stupid.

    I guess it's not "heroic" enough? Even though marvel "heroes" are mostly all murderous buttholes to begin with.

    Which mercs would you give their own book? Outside of Deathstroke obviously.

      Eh, if it's a matter of morality, you could always give the protag a strict honor code and whatnot. ost of the popular merc characters do that.

      Samus Aran and Star Fox.

          Her mother was hmong Vietnamese so she is half-mong. This was a meme for a while because certain twittergays were harassing DC about acknowledging it, complaining about "whitewashing". So Cinemaphile usually would post "Did you know she's hmong?" in every topic with Rose.

            New 52 Rose was literally white, they made her Adeline's biological daughter. The TTv3 artist was on record thinking Rose was white when he started drawing her.
            Christopher Priest went out of his way to acknowledge her mother's heritage. Originally her mom was a Cambodian CIA asset who helped Slade out during the Khmer Rouge. Priest specifically made her Hmong, and made sure nobody would ever forget it.

              And now both origins are canon so she is both hmong and not at once.

              Joking aside they always color her asian now, like with Connor Hawke

    Was Williamson's Robin good? It's the last listed long series of appearances for Rose but I don't want to commit to 12 issues if she's just gonna be a bit character. Or if it sucks, I guess.

      No, Robin is jerking off for Damian gays. Brisson wrote a lot of Rose recently, I'd say it's the only good thing about the character since Priest.

        This was bad, though.

        Pirates are privateers which aren't too different from mercenaries.

        Also shes missing an eye and she uses swords

        She got her eye back in Flashpoint, she's had two ever since.

          They have literally shown that she still stabbed her eye out after Rebirth. She's just got the one again.

            No? They've also shown Bludhaven getting bombed, it still doesn't change that it was reversed in Flashpoint. People remember it, they can show it in flashback, but they still acknowledge when and how it was undone.
