Query...in VH1 does XO fight Bloodshot?

Post by Oxmyx »

I ask because I didn't think they did but there's a panel in HARD Corps #5 that looks like they show them fighting.

It's clearly Bloodshot but not clearly XO
I've been looking everywhere for the ultra-rare Turok vs Blister issue. Anybody able to help me out?

Would assume it's Ax. Don't remember any fight between Bloodshot and X-O in VH1 right now. Off topic - their fight in VH2 is classic.

Neither Ax nor Aric/XO show up in issue #5. Not sure who or what you're seeing?!?

Ax never appears in any HARD Corps issue. XO only in the Chaos Effect tie-in.

XO never fights Bloodshot in VH-1. They are on the same side in Secret Weapons and The Visitor vs. the VU.

Are you referring to VEI and just mistyped? Or did Acclaim put out something worth looking up. I just learned that the VEI fight happened. Bloodshot Reborn yes? A bit ahead in my reading order but something major to look forward to.

That is the leader of Omen Enterprises, Sigmund Heydrich, and he doesn't really look like Aric (blonde) or Ax (adolescent).

Ah, sorry, now I know what you mean. On the TV screen Bloodshot is seen fighting Ax in Battery Park; from Bloodshot #2.

In all those years I never realized that's Ax (losing his hand). :lol:

Good catch! :thumb:

Same for me. I only see "15862071516614757819498709363159.jpg" in plain text and the error message.

I think several issues of Acclaim's Bloodshot are worth looking up.

This fight took place in issues 7 and 8.

Yes, Acclaim's Bloodshot isn't bad. Plenty of action. But also plenty of text that isn't dialogue. On the other hand you really get your money's worth. Some comics can be read in 5 minutes....not Acclaim's Bloodshot. For some pages and panels alone you need like 5 minutes. Not kidding!

Acclaim's stuff isn't entirely bad. Some is really bad though (eg Ninjak).

Q&W still is the best Q&W (if you like Priest's style).
