    I personally don't give a crap about who they cast as the FF. You could pull a Big Hero 6 for all I care. I just want to enjoy the character without having things that cannot easily be read as...

    The Fant4stic is a case study in how changing someone's race was somehow more racist. Who thought making the black sibling a senseless delinquent while the white sibling was the smart and sensible...

    He's a space pilot, mind you. It means that he would have a grasp of physics. It's one of the things the Tim Story films did right. It's the Thing who points out that the Silver Surfer on Earth...

    It's called a crippling overspecialization. Reed being smart and good at everything science in essence made him his son. Reed can probably bend reality to his will if you gave him a whiteboard. Hell,...

    And of course, you know, all the crap he pulled in Civil War and got off light compared to the others. At worst, he got beaten by the Hulk during World War Hulk. Meanwhile, Tony ended up getting...

    It's not fake. It's art from one of the designers, T.N. Perkins IV who, according to Linkedin, worked on the show.

    This is why I choose not to think about the physics of this. Thermodynamics would have had Johnny dead long ago, Reed would have annihilated his various organs, and Sue's light powers are a whole new...

    Ladies and germs, I present to you the Pope Nightcrawler plot from Chuck Austen's X-Men run.

    It goes a little something like this.

    Nightcrawler is studying to be a priest, but no one seems to...

    Given that Fox did things which outright infuriated me (Dark Phoenix's handling of Jean, everything about Storm, killing the First Class mutants, Mystique), forgive me for being optimistic. At least...

    We do need more Chinese Mythology in the West. The Japanese seem to have a monopoly on East Asian mythology ever since they exported their culture through their media.

    It's worth noting that the...

    The reason why we have the system we have is because of First Past the Post voting or the "winner takes all system." Minority governments can be made, so people vote against their own interests...

    It has seems we have reached an impasse.

    Another major aspect of this discussion we've outright neglected is how we define race. Legally, Americans define anyone in Latin America as white despite...

    I would argue it is a little bit of both. The villains have definitely stagnated. Red Ghost and his Super Apes are so pathetic that a 4 year old Franklin whose powers were limited to astral...

    It's really telling that MC2 did the Lyja Johnny plot better. For one, what Lyja did reasonably resulted in Johnny not wanting anything to do with her and then getting back together on better (read...

    You say this, but the easiest counterargument I could make is the Catálogo alfabético de apellidos, a Spanish decree where Filipino citizens took Spanish or Spanish transliterated Tagalog names. All...

    I also dislike the idea of connecting so much to the super soldier program. Mutants? failed super soldiers and their descendants. Hank Pym? Worked on the super soldier program. European heroes? Super...

    Simple. There were moments, runs, and events which soured everyone's image of Ultimate Marvel. Time also hasn't been the kindest to them either.

    I will say this about the DeFalco run. Ideas he pioneered in his 616 run were done much more justice in his MC2 run.

    I'm shocked Harras is back in the news. Wasn't he an editor when Marvel went under back in 95?

    The 90s FF cartoon was great in the second season. Coincidently, Quinton Flynn was brought on to do the Human Torch, so I'm a bit biased towards having him on the cast over Brian Green

    There would certainly be less editorial conflict between offices and books. Whitley, during the behind the scenes on Future Foundation, had to jump through multiple hoops when it came to merely...

    Your argument hinges completely on the assumption that a surname does not change hands between races and ethnic groups the same way given names have. They certainly do. Take the name Abraham as an...

    This book's biggest failing is that it tried to make a character like Franklin sympathetic. Putting aside his mistreatment of the disabled in the main Fantastic Four book, there is a major difference...
