What comic book characters do NOT need to be adapted?
 
In contrast to the other thread, which states that there are many characters that can and should be adapted into live action, is there any that you think should never go beyond pen and ink, or even have been created to begin with?

I'd like to see Sentry done at some point but as more of a satirical deconstruction as he was intended.

Aquaman doesn't belong with the others mentioned

Neither does Namor.

None of them NEED to be adapted.

I Think the question is: "Need to NOT be adapted"

Kiwi Black
Doop
Composite Superman

this thread would be more interesting with actual reasoning.

The Hood: Because he's an awful villain sue that gets to achieve things vastly beyond himself purely because the writer likes him.

The Sentry: Because the MCU has no need for such a deconstructionist character. . . and anything outside the original story is pure mess.

Roose Bolton 08-28-2012 07:19 PM

Re: What comic book characters do NOT need to be adapted.
 
I can see it now:
Marvel Studios presents:
Ang Lee's The Sentry.

To the person who mentioned Harley Quinn, I'd love to see her as a psychopath who follows the Joker around. Just me, though.

I've always disliked Rhino for some reason. Just a generic meathead vilain to me.

Almost every single 90's Image character.

Re: What comic book characters do NOT need to be adapted.
 
The Sentry would work in an avengers sequel maybe playing off the original mini series. Make it a mystery playing off how nobody remembers him and they should and it turns out he's the villain in the end.

As far as characters that would never make it to film Maggot from the X-men

Nope, still wouldn't work. The Sentry mini relies upon the dystopian nature of the Marvel Universe, a dystopian nature that simply hasn't been present in the movies to date.
