Does the end of Ashes to Ashes have to mean the end of our beloved Gene Hunt? Absolutely not! Gene Hunt is the perfect antihero who deserves to live on through his own comic book!
Gene Hunt the perfect antihero!
Being the antihero has always been the rage in comics! Wolverine, The Punisher, and even Rorschach from The Watchmen are gloried by their method of dispensing justice. Gene is no different and with myself as head writer, a comic book could definitely be a hit. Whether it’s a mini-series or just a one issue special!
Gene Hunt is a complex character and there’s much more we still don’t know about him. This would make for a perfect Gene Hunt origins story.
The Life On Mars/Ashes to Ashes franchise ought to continue to thrive after season 3. The best way to ensure this happens is to begin a comic book series. And why not? Comic book adaptations of Star Trek, Doctor Who, and Angel are as popular as ever.
