    Well Spider-Man and X-Men still do well, as does Batman, as does Immortal Hulk.



    Not sure what that has to do with the discussion here. Captain Marvel in the Binder-Beck era were genuinely...

    The movies haven't exactly brought in a truckload of new readers to Iron Man comics. The fact that comics' Iron Man remains unrecognizable from the character in the movies likewise makes it hard to...

    It's when characterization consists in other characters falling on themselves to talk up a character in opposition to what the character does and the character's effect on readers. That's a long...

    Iron Man was a character who never had a great deal of prestige. He was the lesser star of the Avengers. His rogues gallery was pretty terrible and his supporting cast generally weak. Likewise, the...

    They trusted Ben and May with their son, so why not their daughter?



    Winter Soldier didn't play stuff safe. Or you know Damian Wayne. Bruce Wayne having a son with Talia was a bold...

    Alternate timelines, amirite?



    Lazy storytelling is dropping a long-lost sister into a narrative that never really needed that, and which does go against a lot of the established themes of the...

    So what is your opinion on Teresa Parker overall? Do you think she's his sister...do you think it will stick? Will Marvel let this stand or retcon it later?

    What do you make of the narrative and...

    As per Marvel any time travel stuff only takes characters to an alternate timeline and not a true past. So it doesn't really count. All it means is that Peter went to a timeline that happened to have...

    The implications of Teresa Parker being actually Peter's sister is enormous...because suddenly she, and not May, becomes the most person in Peter's family. I mean biological baby sister > old aunt,...

    Can be faked easily.



    Could be her real photo if it's just her. If its with the Parkers, it's photoshop.



    If they wanted to, they would use a DNA Test from the start and everything.

    A story where Peter/JJ/Teresa hop across time and space and so on. And published in the second series. Not very convincing.



    The fact is Peter hasn't informed Aunt May about Teresa's survival...
