Quote from: Engineer on Oct 26, 2022, 06:38:01 PMDark horse wasn't perfect, but if they were still handling the comics today, we would have had an "official prequel to Prey" already where feral faced-off against the French fur trappers prior to his encounter with Naru
Yes, that would be far preferable to what we're getting from Marvel.
If our human female protagonist is already established as this nigh-unstoppable Pred-wrecking machine within the first few issues, how is this character and the plot going to develop across the next, say, dozen issues？
If she can repeatedly beat Preds like this over and over again, she's either extremely lucky...or the Preds simply don't pose much of a danger to her. The former is silly from a storytelling perspective and the latter debases the Preds.
It woulda made more sense to follow her long and arduous journey from grieving, orphaned girl to hardcore warrior-woman...like a slow-burn revenge tale, where along the way, we could learn more about Marvel's Pred universe set in the future. What are the forces at play on the human and non-human sides？How did she learn the ropes and grow into an elite operator capable of hunting Preds？
Maybe they'll introduce an "elite" Pred to give her a proper challenge later？So far, this reads like a generic sci-fi setting with a hyper-dominant heroine from the get-go and hapless Preds thrown in as fodder to prop her up.
