WildC.A.T.s: Covert Action Teams (1992) - #5: Jim Lee, Scott Williams.

“Killer Instinct Prologue: First Blood” : “Warblade finds himself in hot water when he meets a former love who was long thought to be dead, her name is none other then Misery. When the fight ends will Warblade still be alive to talk about it? The rest of the Cats have their own problems to deal with after they blow up a Damonite research center and must escape before they are discovered by the Gamorian government.”

    Do you remember the action movies in the 90s? There was a Rambo – like leading character (usually played by Stallone himself, or by Schwarzenegger) forced to fight against innumerous enemies: any other man would have been doomed, but our hero, with his guns, muscles, fight techniques and (last but not least) brain, was always able to find a way out.
    Grifter is exactly like this: no matter how many enemies he has to face and how complicated their plans are, you can be sure he will find a solution to all his problems. Like Batman, a big part of Grifter’s charm is his talent in getting out of troubles despite being a normal person, without superpowers. There’s only one, big difference between them: Batman is a hunter, while Grifter is a prey – but it’s the shiftiest prey you’ve ever met.
    These are the reasons why Grifter is one of my favorite comic book characters. The others are Batman, Daredevil, Green Arrow, Nightwing, the Punisher and the current Blue Beetle (listed in no particular order).

      Grifter is fantastic. Like The Punisher, he brings a more human quality to the superhero genre. Great character. 🙂

        I’m very glad that we’re on the same page. If you like Grifter, you should try Vibe as well: I think that, since Grifter closed, Vibe has been the closest thing to that marvellous series you could get. Thank you for your reply! : )
