Another drastic change on a DC classic character. When I first seen the new 52 concept I was like, WHAT!?!
Then my son looked at him and said
" They got him looking like MGK "
??? um mm.....who is that?
He's a Hip Hop artist. He flips open his laptop and shows me who MGK is. I'm an Outkast, Scarface, Wu Tang kinda guy. But when I heard the kid rhyme it changed my whole outlook. Wait wait wait..... For my man to make that cross reference and connect the new outfit to what's currently going on right now it made me think that maybe DC's attempt to make their characters current might not be to far off from right and what works for the new comic book readers out there.
I know your head is hurting right now like this guy. But right now the new younger ( out of character ) Green Arrow is pretty popular. Dale and Gemini seem to like the show as well. So making Count Vertigo a younger different version might just connect this new 52 with DC's actual target audience.?.
For me, the Young justice version has been the coolest version of the character yet. But that's just me.
If they ( DC ) can make this new tough guy 52 Vertigo work I'm going to have to applaud this one. Cause what they did with my man Bronze Tiger's new look is criminal. I would have taken new Vertigo's outfit with a bandolier and broad swords to a fight every day of the week and twice on Sunday.
I'm still going Indy until the real BT comes back, but if we're still going to traverse this genre you better
