    Here's something else, ASM #13, the issue before #14, had Mysterio's origin. ASM #15, the issue after 14 is the first appearance of Kraven but also the first mention of Mary Jane in print (where Aunt...

    Remember Leah Williams doesn't tell stories for free. I happen to think there's more going on here...and I think MJ has some tricks and ideas up her sleeve.

    This is a setup that's part of a hook. ...

    Well read his wikipedia, he has a pretty interesting story. And his Vertigo series about the founder of NAACP (which Mister Mets recommends, but I haven't read myself and now I probably will)...is...

    This issue felt really weak for me. Until now, I didn't think there was a bad issue in Spencer's run (obviously some were better than others, but everyone was solid) but I felt this was a bad issue...

    Oh sorry. So as you and Frontier mentioned then. :)



    This feels a bit like the JMS era. JMS was quite a generous lead-writer. When he wrote ASM, Paul Jenkins did Spectacular, followed by Millar...

    So much talent gathered...and it's basically some inter-office thing that would have been unpublishable had anyone else done it.

    I wish this had been a series of one-page stories a la Marvel...

    Wonderful first issue. I like the plot and concept very much.



    She could say that she had to go along since she didn't know what these villains would do to her if she said no...that's the out...

    This is the second Bugle-centric miniseries after The Pulse and a welcome one.

    And yay, Robbie's in charge too, as Frontier said.



    Perhaps not to the extent of actually showing stuff from...

    Remember that Rupert Murdoch is also a big shareholder at Disney/Marvel after the purchase and he does have some pull there too...

    Perlmutter's nothing to compared to Rupert Murdoch.

    That's not exactly true.

    As Brian Cronin pointed out, Peter and Mary Jane had sex at the end of ASM #149 when they were dating. It's done by implication but it's a pretty obvious implication,...

    Ike is fenced in at Marvel. He is there but not gone.

    I think Marvel are worried that if Perlmutter is removed he’ll go postal like Dafoe’s Osborn, strap a board on a drone and glide around...

    I remember comic fans of a certain vintage attacking that as melodramatic, saying "it's trying to make being a hot model someone to be sorry for"...and man have the last few years made them all eat...

    Lee always believed that he wrote for the curious and growing children, as well as teenagers, adolescents and young adults (which at the time meant late teens and early 20s). Likewise, Lee said he...

    Yeah.

    Sometimes being a "fan" of stuff doesn't mean you're going to be good at it.

    Lee wasn't the biggest fan of "long underwear stories" but he had an outside frame of reference, a sense of...

    Lee thought superhero comics were juvenile and during the 50s, they were. Lee was much more drawn to MAD Magazine, EC Comics, newspaper funnies and other stuff than non-comic strips (which remember...

    Gossip is fine, I guess. And you're the mod, mod.



    I think a writer with talent, skill, conviction, empathy and craft can write Peter and Mary Jane quite outside of anything in their personal...

    Shooter is active and accessible on his blog online. You can try contacting him and asking him.

    I think Jim Shooter ought to be held accountable for not allowing gay characters in Marvel Comics of that decade. I think you can accept that Shooter was a great EIC and overall wonderful creative...

    That's a big hard What-If you know.

    The truth is that until Marvel's purchase by Disney, Marvel had historically been shuttled between different corporate owners. At one time it was some chemical...

    Iron Man's success probably made Marvel realize that projects like Guardians of the Galaxy or Black Panther would have an audience. The RDJ Iron Man movies work mainly because it brought new kinds of...

    Whatever the reason, Marvel frames comics!Tony that way.

    Psychologically you can argue that Tony tends to enter into dead-end relationships that he passives sustains only for women to break his...

    Are we still practicing Salic Law? I was under the impression in modern democracies at least, that women have equal inheritance rights.

    And in any case as far as male heir of the mantle...

    True but it's also hard to work that in. Pepper married Happy Hogan, and then Happy died. Tony Stark has been a serial womanizer before and after he became Iron Man. In the movies, Tony once he...

    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...
