Yes! Bullseye is ready for his close-up!
He’s kind of corny.
He’s into deathtraps and he’s all flamboyant…
Oh well. He’ll get cooler later.
In his first appearance, Bullseye does amazing lethal and nonlethal things with a paper airplane, a grenade, a garbage can, bowling pins, a tuning fork, and a pen. That’s the fun part. Actually, the best part is when Bullseye literally uses a human cannonball as a weapon against Daredevil.
Wolfman immediately establishes Bullseye as Marvel’s most explicitly violent character, surpassing all prior Punisher appearances. And like Punisher, Bullseye’s origins go back to Vietnam, where he was a natural born killer.
This is the beginning of Daredevil becoming a darker, more serious book-but it really picks up speed in a year, when Frank Miller takes over.
A bit of trivia: Bob Brown was the artist, but John Romita Jr. is generally credited as designing Bullseye’s look.
Creators: Marv Wolfman and Bob Brown
