Welcome. I tend to agree. I have nothing against the Hand conceptually and their initial few appearances were quite cool. But you have to pretty much accept that, when you see them, you're getting the same thing.

But why does that have to be the case? Why can't the Hand develop into something more dynamic and interesting?

It wouldn't be that hard, just give some members of the Hand characterization, give them a dynamic leader who is a character in his own right, rather then some throwaway generic villain being in charge. With a leader and members with actual characterization, you can develop their agenda more.

Why not give them some depth, instead of just making them a series of "cool moments" and nothing else.

I prefer the League of Assassins from Batman and the Foot from TMNT (which started off as a parody of the Hand), because both those groups have dynamic leaders and members with characterization. At this point I like a group that started off as a parody of the Hand, better then the Hand itself.

Frank Miller made his mark partially by taking old villains like Kingpin, Bullseye and Gladiator and revamping them to fit his vision, why shouldn't a writer try to do that with the Hand, instead of being slavishly devoted to the Frank Miller version of the Hand, which after more then 30 years, is played out.

Strange, another comment that didn't post

Hi Mike and Overlord. I had just tried to post a previous comment a few minutes ago, but I do not see it appear again.

If this one post's, I wished to thank you for you're responses and to also inform you that I had just recently noticed that the forum has a page 1,2, etc format, otherwise I would have replied much sooner as in on the 14th or 15th of this month.

Let em try again. Should I hit the preview box first this time, or just the submit like before?
