    I never asked myself that question before. But looking back on it, ever since my age was measured in single digits I've been particularly fond of "The Amazing Spider-Man #18," in which Peter Parker...

    The Shield now displays yet another useful trick which wasn't mentioned in his origin story. He produces some glass containers and mixes their contents together to create a powerful acid which is his...
  3. Debut of MLJ's "The Shield": Typical patriotic propaganda, or something darker?

    As those of you with long memories will recall, for several years now I have had a sacred tradition. In honor of this special day of the year, I am once again perpetrating -- I mean, perpetuating --...

    And here I thought I only added the smiley face in a good-humored attempt to soften the blow to your ego when you realized I was pointing out how silly you were being . . . but what do I know?

    Any so-called Green Arrow fan who basically says "Real Green Arrow fans are not allowed to enjoy a different take on the character unless I give them permission to enjoy it" is spurious in my view. ...

    You want the truth? Off the top of my head, I can't even remember that episode! But I'm old enough that I started collecting Batman comic books in the early 1980s, and back in those days, it was...

    Looking back, I see that three years ago, when I offered some Controversial Opinions of my own in this thread, one was this:

    That last bit was my first thought when I saw the question. It would just make fans snort when they ran across the ludicrous suggestion that "Roy has been half-Native American by blood all along, and...

    I paid for it on Comixology and read it, focusing (of course) on anything resembling Psylocke/Spidey dialogue. Looks like you and I agree that anything along those lines only happened in one panel....

    Several years ago, back when DC still hosted discussion forums on its own website, I saw someone set forth an interesting theory about that adoption.

    His idea went this way: "Bruce had already...

    Thank you! I felt certain those two must have crossed paths, canonically, and probably more than once, in the 30 years it's been since Betsy first joined the X-Men. But I couldn't visualize, from...

    Booster isn't addressing (much less contradicting) my opinion at all!

    I'm not sure what you mean.

    It seems as if you're saying this: "Psylocke has only interacted with Spidey in one published story. That story is noncanonical, so it doesn't really count. They have...

    I have a quick question about Psylocke's continuity. I recently realized that while I remember a lot about the things she did within the X-Men titles during the 1980s, 1990s, and well into the 2000s,...

    Before, you were simply saying "he shouldn't have a name."

    Now you are arguing that calling him "Stranger" or "The Stranger" is a nickname, but that's okay as long as he doesn't use "The Phantom...

    I've never seen this opinion before. It confuses me. I see a difference between "a descriptive nickname" or "a job title" on the one hand, and "a real name," on the other.
