    Default Nemesis too

    Who should be Nemesis, all things being considered?

    Witchfire kind of depends on Infernus, I guess.

    I'm not up to date on the past few years of AF like everyone else but I think Nemesis should be left alone for now.

    No one should be Nemesis, she died after the eventual demise of Deadly Ernest, anything since is bad writing imho.

    Fiorello: Well, I don't know about that...
    Driftwood: Now what's the matter?
    Fiorello: I no like-a the second party, either.
    Driftwood: Well, you should've come to the first party. We didn't get home 'til around four in the morning... I was blind for three days!

    I agree that there should be no Nemesis right now, but I'd be okay with a new one if they come up a mythology to explain the how and why a Nemesis comes into being.

    Del,
    If I remember correctly, wasn't the whole point of the original Nemesis to thwart Deadly Ernest. Once that was done, she dissipated, right?

    Nobody...She should get a rest...The original has been gone for a long time, anyway.

    The second one (who joined Gamma Flight) has always been a mystery...But there is no way she was the same person as the first, their personalities were very different.

    The Vol. 3 Nemesis is also apparently dead now.

    Basically, yea. She says in #8, something along the lines that once 'only the death of Ernest will bring peace to her soul and her fathers'. This to me suggests that Nemesis came about as a direct result of the actions of Deadly Ernest, so anything else is typical sloppy Marvel writing. She did dissapate after Puck sliced and dices Ernest after Scramble had re-animated him.

    Actually, Deadpool stole her costume - Nemesis predates him by about five years.

    Deadpool was "created" by Rob Liefeld, after all.

    Deadpool while a great character whom I enjoy is everybit a tribute to Slade Wilson Deathstroke The Terminator. While the costumes have few similarties at this point Rob Liefeld admits that Deathstroke was Deadpools inspiration. Also I think even more than 5 years. Deadpool was introduced in the mid 90s. Wasnt Nemesis in the mid 80s?

    Not anymore. Either someone is posting under his name on Newsarama, or he's changed his mind on that one.

    Never understood the Deathstroke/Deadpool thing other than the Dead/Death aspects of their names. So if you take away the buccaneer boots, the chain mail, the half mask, the buccaneer gloves.....you have Deadpool? Deathstroke has Superman's build, strong and broad, Deadpool has a slighter build, more Spider Man, Nightcrawler. And that's just what my naked eyes reveal at a glance.
    See it here.

    His full post is on the seventh page of comments.

    My info was based from the Deadpool Wikipedia article. It has a quote from Deadpools creators on there about the Deathstroke connection. I suppose Liefield has changed his stance. Wiki Deadpool and check it out my info was from there.

    I believe you, I just thought it was funny that RL was denying it now on Newsarama.
