ANY decent Daredevil flick requires ninja. I don't know WTF the filmmakers were thinking.

The Question said:I think that Stiltman would be a great character if they actually wrote him in his place. He's not a master criminal. He's a grunt. A thug. An fancy safe craker for hire at best. Doesn't mean he's a bad character. Just means he's not a big one.
The Overlord said:His gimmick is stupid and his character is generic. There a million different thug villains who would be more dangerous and interesting then Stilt-Man. At someone like Gladiator has motive for his crimes, Stilt-Man's motive is that he is an idiot. Plus he would look silly on the screen, because he looks silly in the comics.
The Question said:Stilt Man's not an idiot. He may not think very practically, but his suit shows that he has a good deal of engineering skill. And his character isn't that generic. All you need is the proper writer to take him off the shelf, polish him up, and make him shine.
The Question said:Well, there in lies your motive. He was always a smart guy, but could never hold down a job to save his life. A string of bad luck and crappy jobs led him to take up crime as a last resort, ending up becoming a safe cracker. He's not a bad character. It's just that no one is willing to take the time to even give him a chance.
The Question said:So? Since when are powers what makes someone a good character? That's the kind of mentality that keeps anything interesting from happeing with Stilt Man. He'd be a good character if someone just tried.
The Overlord said:Good powers make you a formidable foe, how is Stilt-Man supposed to be interesting if he can't even pose a real threat to DD.
The Overlord said:Seriously Stilt-Man is an idiot for building such an impratical suit of amour, seriously his motive sucks, his powers are lame and his look is stupid.
