Yes, It was a good story with the exception of that one thing with him being tied to that chick.
@ 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 don't see why he wouldn't be. Maybe not an ideal representation of a superhero but one nevertheless.
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 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!
