Durability[edit]

If we are adding durability to the list of powers in the superherobox, then we need to edit the last line of Powers and abilities to remove the conflict. Grey Shadow | Talk 21:37, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

What is the source for the durability claim? In other words, how reliable is the edit? Although that last sentence reads like Original Research and should be changed, maybe to "a lack of resistance to bullets". CovenantD 22:53, 7 December 2006 (UTC)
As Ive said before both links state that he has a form of durability. It seems that its not a huge increase seeing that he did die from a bullet but it is somthing. Also I will take off the last line since he does have inhanced durability, not to mention it doesnt belong there. Thefro552 05:27, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

I propose a merge[edit]

I propose a merge of this page with Basilisk (Mutant) so that it is similar to pages like Tarantula (Marvel Comics), because they are two characters that have the same name. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Freak104 (talkcontribs)

Moving this to the bottom ... I think the merge should go the other way, pulling the mutant page into this one. -- Ipstenu (talk|contribs) 14:12, 21 May 2007 (UTC)
I concur, if a merge is to be done (I'm of no opinion on that matter), then merge the mutant into this one. 204.153.84.10 22:53, 21 May 2007 (UTC)
I posted this merge proposal in both talk pages because I didn't know how to do the official merge proposal thingie (I looked in the help pages). But now GentlemanGhost has done that. And I agree that the mutant page should be moved to this one. --Freak104 02:29, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

  • Merge - Usually I'm anti-merge but I agree with this move. RIANZ 22:22, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

Merged[edit]

Since no one seemed to have strong opinions, I went bold and merged. -- Ipstenu (talk|contribs) 17:36, 23 May 2007 (UTC)

Resurrection[edit]

Looks like the Basilisk is probably officially alive again, as he survived the Punisher storyline! Since it looks like the details get removed when they are placed in the article, I will place his entire role in the storyline here by issue, and you can decide for yourself how much or how little you want to use - the rest is for your reading enjoyment!

  • 5: The Hood performs a ritual where seventeen criminals, all murdered by the Scourge, are resurrected using the power of Dormammu as part of a squad assembled to eliminate the Punisher.
  • 6: The Hood hosts a meeting for the resurrected criminals and explains to them that they have to kill the Punisher, telling them it was the Punisher who acted as the Scourge who killed them, and that if they do not kill the Punisher after one month the spell will end and they will be dead again; succeed, and they will live again. Basilisk leaves the meeting with Death Adder, stating they won't need the assistance of the others. When G.W. Bridge finds the pair at the Bar With No Name where the Scourge killed the other criminals, he finds that they have captured his wife (badly injured, either dead or near dead) and stepson and are holding them hostage, to make Bridge tell them where they can find the Punisher.
  • 7: The villains threaten to kill the boy, and Bridge offers to help them in order to spare his life.
  • 8: As the criminals use Bridge's codes to put out a distress signal to attract the Punisher, Bridge begins to free himself and his son from the chains binding them.
  • 9: Bridge bashes Basilisk in the head with a board with nails sticking out of it. Before Basilisk can kill Bridge, the Punisher uses the Hijacker's tank to crash into the Bar With No Name and gases Basilisk, allowing Bridge to escape, although Bridge doesn't get far as he is assaulted by Death Adder. Basilisk causes the ground around the Punisher to collapse and forces a confrontation.
  • 10: The Punisher fights Death Adder, and Bridge shoots Basilisk in the chest. The Punisher beats Death Adder badly, but Basilisk intervenes and is able to knock the Punisher out. Death Adder moves in to kill him, but Basilisk reminds him that the Hood offered a bigger reward if they bring him in alive.

These two last appear about halfway through issue #10 as Punisher is losing consciousness; since the storyline appears to end with this issue, and since their contract with the Hood appears to have been fulfilled with the Punisher's capture, it seems likely that all the criminals not killed during the storyline are once again fully alive. We'll see what happens from there, though! 24.148.0.83 (talk) 01:46, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
