    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
