Respect Death's Head, Yes?

Respect Death’s Head, Yes?


In a few weeks, this will be followed by a Death’s Head II respect thread and also a “Family Tree” thread that includes Death’s Head, DHII, Death Wreck, Death Metal, and DH 3.0

Link to the “Family Tree” thread: http://www.killermovies.com/forums/f98/t461698.html

Link to the Death’s Head II (Minion) thread: http://www.killermovies.com/forums/f98/t461697.html

This thread focuses on feats. I don’t provide backstory and detailed explanations. If you want those, check out the “Family Tree” thread.

Death’s Head is the wise-cracking “Freelance Peacekeeping Agent” (see: Bounty Hunter) from Marvel UK comics.

This is his respect thread.

Death’s Head I

Bios: http://www.internationalhero.co.uk/d/dethhead.htm
http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix3/deathsheadfpa.htm
Picture: http://img291.imageshack.us/my.php?image=dheadjk7.jpg
Description: Death’s Head is a “Freelance Peacekeeping Agent”, which is his fancy term for Bounty Hunter. He hates being called a bounty hunter. He’s strong (probably Class 50-ish or better, even though his bio only has him around Class 25), durable as all hell, can fly, has a sense of humor, and has a multi-function arm with more options on it than Mega-Man on a bender.


Origin
This back story is told years later via a computer that had recorded Death’s Head’s entire life. DHII is watching it to learn about the original.

The following explanation is better to read than listen to me summarize it. After his creation, he was stolen, programmed to fight, and participated in an intergalactic robot war. Death’s Head actually got his start in Transformers comics, and this is the “robot wars” referred to in the origin scans. At the end of the Transformer wars, an explosion threw him into a time vortex. Inside the time flux, he was tricked (and shrunk to normal size) by a man named The Doctor (unrelated to Wildstorm) and sent into the year 8162 where he first appeared in mainstream comics.
(“Dragon’s Claws #4-5” is his first appearance in the mainstream Marvel Universe, and it is recreated in the last scan here).

…and we skip ahead, after The Doctor has shrunk Death’s Head and struck a deal with him.

Durability:

He takes a large explosion at point-blank range and is still moving. In the end, a building falls on him as well, but we find out later that he was severely injured but survived.

Weapons:

His “standard weapons” include a blade attachment for his arm, and an assortment of swords, maces, and other weapons in a backpack-looking thing. The rest here are more exotic weaponry.

A hit that he made to “get publicity”. Shows some ingenuity, and also shows that he has metal-melting acid pellets in his arsenal.

Battles:

Transformers, yes?
Let’s start with some of Death’s Head’s Transformers appearances. I have no idea if this would be considered Marvel canon or not, but he has essentially the same power set and skills as he does in the Marvel universe, only he’s enlarged to be the same size as the Transformers.

I’d like to give credit for these to the person who made the respect thread on the Hero Chat forums.
http://herochat.com/phpBB2/viewtopi...asc&start=0
The Marvel stuff is all mine, but I borrowed these Transformers fights from that thread.

#1 – Vs. 2 Transformers called Cyclonus and Scourge
http://img107.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t11pg6.jpg
http://img107.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t12tl5.jpg
http://img50.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t13qh4.jpg

#2 – A fight against Bumble Bee
http://img378.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t22ni6.jpg
http://img68.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t23ca1.jpg

#3 – Vs. a bot named Sound Wave
http://img96.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t31ua2.jpg
http://img50.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t32yc7.jpg
http://img378.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t33si3.jpg
http://img50.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t34iy2.jpg
http://img378.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t35jq4.jpg

#4 – I think this is vs. a guy named Galvatron
http://img50.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t41qi5.jpg
http://img67.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t42ut8.jpg

#5 – Vs. Rodimus Prime
http://img68.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t51qo0.jpg
http://img68.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t52pf5.jpg
http://img68.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t53ri0.jpg
http://img378.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t54sl2.jpg
http://img484.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t55di9.jpg
http://img74.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t56ys6.jpg
http://img378.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t57xl1.jpg

#6 – Cyclonus, Scourge, and Rodimus again
http://img74.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t61nt9.jpg
http://img96.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t62rg1.jpg
http://img378.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t63ff6.jpg

Basically, it’s a lot of Death’s Head whupping the hell out of Transformers. They’re afraid of him. Keep in mind, he was enlarged to Transformer-size for these fights. He got shrunk down before making the switch to Marvel.

His first action as a (Marvel) bounty hunter:

http://img458.imageshack.us/my.php?image=15on6.jpg
http://img399.imageshack.us/my.php?image=16ed8.jpg

A hit that he made to “get publicity”. Shows some ingenuity, and also shows that he has metal-melting acid pellets in his arsenal.
http://img338.imageshack.us/my.php?image=17rf0.jpg
http://img458.imageshack.us/my.php?image=18pn9.jpg
http://img107.imageshack.us/my.php?image=19ew8.jpg

Vs. Iron Man 2020. Has his head ripped off and continues fighting. Re-attaches the head and seems to get the better of the fight before they break it off.
http://img361.imageshack.us/my.php?image=101yt1.jpg
http://img476.imageshack.us/my.php?image=102oc9.jpg

http://img401.imageshack.us/my.php?image=104px4.jpg
http://img252.imageshack.us/my.php?image=105lp9.jpg

A battle alongside Death’s Head II. It would take too long to explain the backstory (see the Family Tree thread if you’re interested). Just enjoy the fight.

Misc. Feats:

He has omni-directional senses, and doesn’t need his eyes to see:
http://img412.imageshack.us/my.php?image=23eu2.jpg

Displaying the senses again:

http://img409.imageshack.us/my.php?image=65wu2.jpg

Rocket boots
http://img401.imageshack.us/my.php?image=41sz7.jpg

The boots work underwater:
http://img401.imageshack.us/my.php?image=51pz7.jpg
http://img251.imageshack.us/my.php?image=52zz3.jpg

Interfaces with the FF’s computer systems and calls them “basic”
http://img160.imageshack.us/my.php?image=98pa6.jpg
http://img297.imageshack.us/my.php?image=99bp2.jpg

Projects himself onto the astral plane to do battle with someone:
http://i272.photobucket.com/albums/...s/dh_astral.jpg
...I'll be honest and say this makes little to no sense, given his normal power set and the fact that he's never shown anything remotely close to such powers other than this instance. But it happened, so meh.

A funny line of dialogue as he defeats his “father”
http://img411.imageshack.us/my.php?image=funny1jb3.jpg

Just a sweet pic

Bonus Fight

This is a fun battle from a “What If?” comic (What If…? # 54). In this scenario, the original Death’s Head lives and Minion ends up becoming Charnel, originally a DHII villian. The fight is between the two. And considering how powerful Minion is to begin with, and also how powerful Charnel is, it’s a great feat for Death’s Head (though not in continuity).

He only wins via plot device (Minion had assimilated 616 Reed Richards, and DH uses that to his advantage) but it’s still an amusing fight.

….

K, I’m done. Respect Death’s Head, yes?

Not exactly respect-related, but this seems pertinent enough to post:

"A guy named Galvatron" .. What the f**k? ... Galvatron is about the hardest Transformer (of normal size) there ever was (apart from Grimlock ... IMO)

And even though it is a monster feat to hurt him that much, it should be noted that, on the next panel, Galvatron rips his arm off and beats the shit out of him.

Still respect worthy though.

So I don't know a Transformer from a lego. Sue me.



But good to know...I guess that counts as a decent feat.

Yeah, the list of people Galvatron has pwned is long and impressive, the list of people who have beaten him in his prime is virtually nonexistent ... and out of those I don't think anyone beat him without help (except for Rodimus Prime that one time in the movie)

There's a great one I want to post sometime soon....he's travleing time with this insanely crappy-looking backpack time machine. He time-jumps and the sound effects go:

"POOT!"

DH's reply:

"Poot?! Some time machine you are, yes?"

...

...I just found it priceless that he responded to a sound effect word.

laughing out loud

Sadly "The Touch" doesn't last forever. Poor Roddy found that out in the comics.
