Seriously, fuck this character. He'd show up out of nowhere and the writer would do the "Impossie Man" issue where they try to by funny and fail miserably. It's like if Dane Cook wrote an issue of Fantsstic Four or whatever.

Anybody else fucking hate the character and the issues he appeared in?

I don't mind him.  I think some of his stuff can be genuinely funny, like his issue of MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE or the IMPOSSIBLE MAN SUMMER SPECTACULAR.

Hahhahaha. Too true.

Yes, I hate him. Deadpool is as far as I'll go with crazy humor. Anything more is just unnecessary (hell, some depictions of Deadpool is too much).

Yeah, the Warlock battle was a lot of fun. So were his early FF stories. He's a character that's best used sparingly, and not in serious stories that pit him against actual bad guys.

His fight with Silver Sufer was pretty good.  Especially, when he since he was trying to make a point about Thanos' mind state in comparison to Surfer's.  And how he felt Surfer would lose against him if he didn't change his attitude.


I liked the Mr. Impossible visits the X men.

Was always annoyed by the character.

The best way to use an annoying character is to pair them up with a straight man of some kind; someone you can enjoy seeing annoyed.

But IMP was just lame and annoying.

And buddy; that's a bad combination.

I don't care for him. But he is still a better character than Deadpool.

In small doses, he's okay. He's like a Gazoo, Bat-Mite, etc. type of characer. Some annoying imp thing that is ironically,
ultra powerful, but acts like an annoying cartoon character.

The X-Men one was interesting until the end. That ending was fucking stupid.

I liked the Superman/Silver Surfer crossover.  The whole thing was due to him and Mxy screwing with the two heroes.  You don't see that sort of thing in crossovers much.  You'd think the two were going to team up because Thanos and Darkseid were up to no good... but nah, it turns out to be these assholes.

Otherwise, I could take or leave him.

I loved when he pie-faced Surfer and the oh-shit look surfer had on his face when he saw him IP
