They’ve actually managed to make him look like a decent character – though I’m sure some will work themselves into fits over his Confederate flag belt buckle, which is more apparent on this version. To me, however, what ups his cool factor considerably is that he’d be an easy base for an A-Team movie version of Murdock. Check out the resemblance:

Am I crazy, or is it there?
