He did? Missed that part of that Secret Avengers mini where he came back?

I thought so. I really did like her. Just as she was starting to develop into a good character too.

I suppose Onslaught coming back would be better than the return of teenagr Tony or insect Wasp. :-D

Actually it would be preferable to bringing back the Sentry who I know the fans "love". (Note the sarcasm in my comment).

So that's what happened to her? I totally forgot about the character until you mentioned it now.

Serious question via your posting history here and not trolling:

Where did you leave your time machine and why did you choose 2012 to jump forward in time to?

There's a reason heroes reborn and Onslaught aren't looked on favorable and AoA is. (Hint, AoA actually handled shit properly)

Why do you need the time machine back to return to the stone age, Barney? Say hi to Fred and Wilma for me when you get back there. :-D :-D :-D

As for whether people like Onslaught or not as a character is pretty moot. Some like myself think he was a cool villain while some thought he sucked. That simple.

how is whether people liking onslaught or not a moot point?? wasn't the entire point of this thread to gauge interest on if he should come back? or do you actually not like anyone's opinion but your own?

Seriously, you're the first person I've ever heard of that has admitted to liking Onslaught.

Onslaught was everything that was bad with the 90's, he's the clone saga of the x-books. :lol:

i do find it funny that you asked Doombug if he needed the time machine to go to the stone age, when pretty much everything you've brought up that marvel should do goes back to the time when Marvel was creatively and financially bankrupt...

But at least it lead to the creation of The Thunderbolts and the Avenger comic that followed after Heroes Return had one of the best Avengers Vs Ultron story ever.

Yeah, Onslaught was such a dislikeable character that nobody cared about-so dislikeable that he was never put in a Marvel Vs Capcom game as the final boss-oh wait he was. I do admit he was not the most popular x-character there was but neither was he the most hated( That honor would go to characters like Marrow or Maggot by the way). And by the way, is there such a hatred of the 90's on Outhouse that people would actually compare a shit story like the clone saga to Onslaught? At least the latter didn't cause Marvel to lose 60% of its readership.

Precisely. Apparently some here at Outhouse have this apparent hatred of the 90s up to the point where they think almost everything that came out of it was poison. I do admit that there were bad aspects comic-wise that came out of the 90's such as Emerald Twilight, the 2nd Clone Saga, Maximum Carnage, Venom: Lethal Protector and so on but then you had good stuff like Knightfall, the Death Of Superman, The Reign Of The Supermen, Thunderbolts, etc. Every era has had its ups and downs comic-wise.
