Yes, It was a good story with the exception of that one thing with him being tied to that chick.
I don't see why he wouldn't be. Maybe not an ideal representation of a superhero but one nevertheless.
I agree.....that was a sore point for me as well. Nothing against white chicks but they could have at least made her the same race!  It would have been less of a distraction to the storyline.

@ William...I was having a on-line discussion about "Who's your fav black superhero."  No one ever says Hancock..lol. We all seem to forget to even mention him...and when I bring him up, I get slammed..lol.  Why did you say "Maybe not an ideal representation"....???

I got you, I think the reason why his name doesn't/didn't come up is because he's strictly a movie character and most people (even us comic/sci-fi nerds) automatically equate superheroes with comics.

 

As for why I say Hancock isn't an ideal representation, I was just referring to the unsavory elements of the character like the drinking and potty mouth and what not as the "classic" idea of a superhero is a clean-cut, "model citizen" type of character. 

Ok..I thought that is where you were going with that.. And your right, the silverscreen heroes tend to fade out in the comix universe. There are some rumors floating about a Hancock 2, but I don't think it will happen anytime soon if ever.

 

 

The younger generation tends to like the wayward drunken would be hero....don't know why but they do!

I thought Hancock was funny in a perverse, exploitative way. I laughed uproariously in various segments of the film because it was funny and really pushed the whole slacker superhero vibe. But then it degenerates into garbage. It started out being a tongue in cheek kind of commentary on superheroes and shapeshifted into a run of the mill...by the numbers, formula film. I love Hancock for what it wanted to be. Or maybe for what I wanted it to be? Does that make sense?
@ Brian...Make perfect sense to me!  It was funny and a much better movie until he got all serious. Did you see the uncut version?  If not, check out the what happens when meets a chick at the bar...(Rated nc-17)...lol.
I think he's a real superhero. I think people tend to only consider heroes that have been around for years. Tv, movies, cartoons, merchandise etc. I'm not that way though, I'm always looking for new S.H. I put my Batman with my Brotherman.
@ Shiagari...I heard that! I believe Indy comics and SH are the future.   

I didn't see the movie, but I find this discussion interesting.  A number years ago, I would shunned "Hancock" completely, as in never buying the DVD or looking at it on Netflix because of the "white chick" thing.  Now, I don't care, and that's a good thing.  I didn't even react to John Stewart/Hawkgirl romance thing in the Justice League (well, she is technically an alien).

So I won't hold that against Hancock, unless the relationship is a detriment to the story.  Some of you seem to think so, but I'll have to watch the movie in order to give a more informed opinion.

@ Angela...May I suggest you check out the movie Hancock and then share your thoughts with us.  I would really like to hear your opinion of Hancock form viewer’s perspective.  Does he measure up to Sup, the Bat, GL and the others?  FYI, Power Man..aka “Luke Cage” is also dating a white chick!

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
