my marvel comics dream is to get handed carte blanche to do whatever i want with a lame black character, and turn it into a surprise hit...

the prowler definitely qualifies, but i REALLY want brother Voodoo...

anyways, i could easily make the prowler tight. that costume's got to go, but if people would tune in every week to watch mcguyver, this dude could be fresh...
good writing and art can fix any character, no matter how lame (if animal man, ka-zar, and aquaman can be tight, why not the prowler?)
