Why is Metallo such a worthless, jobbing POS?
>>
>>101082161
Because Szarekh does everything he can better.
>>
Because he's a character built to be a physical threat to a character who thrives on existential and philosophical opposition

He's a Spider-Man villain who fights Superman. All he's good for is action scenes.
>>
>>101082161
He’s literally just a robot
Superman as a character is pretty boring, so a robot that does the same thing every time to Superman is even more boring
>>
>>101082161

Cause he's not Amazo.
>>
You would think a guy who had a heart made out of his biggest enemy's weakness would be more of a threat, huh? Unfortunately Metallo sucks enough that it somehow doesn't matter.
>>
>>101082161

>>LEL LA LEL KRYPONERT CHEST BOX

and not

>>Kryptonite Infused/dusted/coated/plated titanium skeleton

Hes going to be a jobbie until someone competent comes along and makes him an actual credible threat, which will be never, cause he's fucking boring outside of his terminator rip-off design.

I miss Malcolm McDowell...

Eh, his appearence on Superman vs Batman was quite good. He just needs to show up fighting other heroes, J.C. is a superpowered cyborg after all - he is less fancy than Vic but definitly thougher.

>less fancy than Vic

Funny you say that when you mention his one appearance when he's basically an upgraded T-1000.
>>
>>101082251
Best Metallo. I liked the sense loss angle of the character.

How would you write Metallo to be a great villain?
>>
>>101082376
I'd have him fucking win. He coordinates an attack on the JLA (which a hyper-intelligent cyborg should be able to do), isolates Superman, and beats him into a coma, from which none of the other JLA are sure he'll recover. He's then the lead villain in an arc where the rest have to end his reign of terror without Superman's help, which basically results in them getting mollywhopped for weeks until Batman (of course) orchestrates his hard-fought defeat.

He's not dead, just incapacitated. Maybe have Luthor bring him back some time later.
>>
Just make Metallo a natural-born sadist who only lives to see others suffer 'cause he's gone coocoo from a lack of senses.

He KNOWS Superman will win. He KNOWS even if he's stronger and has a kryptonite ticker Superman will win anyway. But he'll still go out and make everyone who can be hurt, hurt, and in complete pain and fear until Superman smacks him down - for him it's a game to see how far he can go till then. Not some crazy blubbering nutjob like Joker, either, he's cold-blooded but enjoys it, relishing his title and status as "supervillain". A fucking cold-blooded prick encased in cold steel. He knows when to ham it up a bit and when to go emotionless and scary as need be. All he has left is the fear in his victims' eyes.

There, now he's got something beyond action scenes. Even those he'll drag out much as possible if it means making the victim's pain be prolonged.

>>101082376
Corben was either Luthor's personal assassin or a elite soldier, one way or another he no brute, he is a cuning villain. My idea would that 7 assassins are bought by unknown to kill Superman and Corben is numero uno of the team, planning the attack and giving the last fight with Superman. Clark has prepared for that fight and is able to destroy Corben's heart but also gets John a new energy source. Superman tells the defeated cyborg, that he doesn't need the Kryptonite anymore and that they don't have to be enemies anymore. Corben only replies:"Then why am I alive?"
>>
>>101082161
Isn't he like the Tien of Superman villains? Sure he can't defeat Superman, but he was once able to shoot him and Corben can keep Superman busy for 10 minutes. No other villain can do that reliably.
>>
>>101082498
Silver Banshee can. Hell, Silver Banshee is a bigger threat than Corben is at this point.
>>
>>101082537
Is it wrong of me to ship them ? Always since they partner-upped in that JLU episode I thought they would make a good couple.Magic and Science, and both have a skeletal theme going on.
>>
>>101082161
because he is a kryptonite powered robot. he is way weaker than superman. he should be fighting lesser heroes, like cyborg or something.
>>
>>101082376
I'd have Lex Luthor engineer a planet of metallos just to spite Superman.
>>
>>101083008
>planet of metallos
What about Planet Metallo? An earth sized metal skull with a kryptonite core powering it.
>>
>>101083067
Aren't robo-skull ships and the like Brainiac's thing?
>>
>>101082161
What's a Necron doing in capeshit?
>>
>>101083067
I'd read it
>>
>>101083833
I think he predates Necrons.
>>
Bump
>>
>>101082161
He's a one trick pony that honestly shouldn't get Supes more then once.
>>
>>101082251
Fuck you, I checked.
>>
I like the angle they gave him in the animated series. A man given the power to get whatever he pleased but was unable to taste or feel it.
