    Well it's how he was introduced in Knightfall... being a master tactician is his core, just as tricks are to Joker. And focusing on the other aspects of Bane -- as a steroid junkie or luchador mask...

    Are we allowed to talk about the rumored spoilers from the upcoming JOKER film?

    Fanboys and the YouTube "fan/reaction" culture will hate it, for sure.

    Besides how disappointing the Night King/White Walkers ended up being in their big moment, Jorah's death was the most irritating part of this episode. Jorah got the death he wanted -- like you say,...

    I was getting the vibe that the conflict in 'Nam was this version of "Civil War" -- where Cap is fighting for ideals rather than government, with Iron Man fighting for specific US interests.

    There isn't just one film that could satisfy everything... I want Spider-Verse to be the catalyst for a full-fledged "Animated SMCU." It seems like this is already in the works, so I'm pretty...

    Right! And it's worth remembering too that we're trying to parse through what the creator was conscious of, and what the writer/artist may have been expressing in their work through their...

    Calling him "shameless" is actually quite a bit more groundlessly speculative about motive than noticing details in the man's work, and wanting to discuss them. The least you could do is adhere to...

    Another parallel that we all forgot about -- the character's books spitting among 4 different replacement personalities in the 1990s. Cyborg-Superman, Superboy, Steel, and Last Son of Krypton =...

    It's true. Only more recently have (some) comics creators openly acknowledged the Jewish origins of superhero comics. Stan Lee and other early creators wanted their characters to be successful, so...

    To reiterate:



    The weddings being 9 years apart doesn't mean they weren't in the same era. How many other superheroes had big wedding issues where the superhero married his longtime girlfriend?...
  12. I think you're arguing against a different point...

    I think you're arguing against a different point than is being made...? Like, nobody is saying that Stan & Steve literally sat down and literally said "We shall make the Marvel Superman." Similarly,...

    Yeah, nothing in common... well, besides the color scheme, general tone, an "S-man" name, and...

    --Both alter egos defined by nebbishness (and Peter Parker wears Clark Kent-like spectacles in the...

    Right. This is also true, and it's part of what makes Spidey unique (along with being the "average joe" superhero, which goes hand-in-hand with the teen thing -- the idea, of course, being to make a...

    This is just fanboyism, my man. "The World's Finest Duo" is marketing language. You're not seeing any connection because they are from different publishers. It's fine if you don't want to engage with...

    I think I read somewhere that Ditko started getting really into The Fountain and Atlas Shrugged toward the end of his Spidey run, but I don't remember exactly. Even so, middle-of-the-road '30s and...

    That essay is very much picking the cherries... but I guess I can see it from that view, kind of... you could look at superheroes as comparable to soldiers, wherein Spider-Man / Superman / Batman /...
  18. True. By "sidelines" I meant her role or...

    True.



    By "sidelines" I meant her role or function in the story... she's there about as often as JJJ, but she hasn't always seemed as important.



    Those are good examples. Just to clarify...

    Well, right.... I mean, yeah, that's what I'm saying! Being an actor/model does not preclude MJ from also writing. It's neither inconsistent with her character, nor unbelievable. Since Peter is...

    Well, we're already repeating decades of stories where Peter has to hide his identity from Aunt May, and that doesn't seem to be an issue. Why would repeating this beat be so detrimental?

    Thank you! There are also quite a few ways Batman clearly influenced Spider-Man, but in arguing about Superman, I didn't even want to bother. And, again, this does not diminish any of the...

    1) My statement is that Spider-Man was/is Marvel's answer to Superman -- not that he was necessarily created to be so consciously, but that he IS so -- or, was so (Superman isn't necessarily the...

    Well, this didn't take long to become Spidey's Gamergate. "It's about ethics in Marvel journalism!"
  24. It may have been more of a subconscious thing,...

    It may have been more of a subconscious thing, but to say there's NO comparison, NO similarities, or it's all coincidental is far more absurd.

    The alter ego's nerdiness, the newspaper job, the...

    Mary Jane should never speak in the comics. When she isn't in the bathtub, she should be thrown off a bridge. Besides, Lois Lane already speaks in other comics, and Jessica Jones already has a job in...
