Bullseye #1 debuted this week and it came out with a bang. After being paralyzed, then blinded, and then killed, Marvel’s greatest assassin is back in action. The new series written by Ed Brisson, drawn by Guillermo Sanna, and colored by Miroslav Mrva is off to a great start. Well, great if you’re not any of Bullseye’s victims. He’s already racking up an enormous body count with no end in sight as the story heads to South America for a showdown with drug cartels. In any event, if you’re a fan of this killer or bad guy comics in general, Bullseye is a series worth checking out.
That got all of us thinking though: What makes Bullseye such an iconic villain? His schtick isn’t exactly unique. Some villains have pulled off the perfect aim motif well like Deadshot at DC Comics and some haven’t like Merlyn. What sets Bullseye apart in a world of bad guys who are very good with projectile objects? It’s nothing as simple as his adamantium skeleton or cool suit. What really makes Bullseye great are the stories he’s in. As part of Daredevil’s rogues gallery, talented creators have transformed Bullseye from a dramatic assassin to one of the best super villains of all time. If you need to know where to start reading, these are the five greatest Bullseye stories ever.
