    One issue between comparing them is we don't know when NWH will be available for streaming and the pirated versions are bad quality, so fans have every motivation to buy movie tickets, while The...

    With Marvel, "updating" origins has always been offensive to me. I hate feeling revised without an explanation, see Spider-Man Chapter One.
    1960s Marvel characters were "pop art". Luke Cage is pure...

    I will agree with Shocker, Spot, Rose, Prowler, White Rabbit, Hydro-Man, and Hobgoblin.

    I liked obscure older villains like Basilisk and Will O Wisp, but not for Spidey.

    I also was into...

    The 1980s will always be the peak for me, with a handful of talents that continued in the 1990s and early 2000s.

    Amazing since Action #1000 had "The Car" by Geoff Johns Richard Donner which retconned the scene and Butch Mason. And then Bendis has the female villain with the car in Action 1006 with no follow-up...

    Bone only holds up if you read it when it was coming out. Cerebus is dated, just a typical parody comic of its time.

    I think much of the complaints stem from Superman movies not being critically acclaimed blockbusters like (many) Batman and Marvel movies. And the expectation is that since Superman was the "first"...

    It was one of my favorite shows when it was on, but I have been staying away from it as the modern DC/Marvel shows are much better. I know there is no way it would hold up today because 1) even at...

    Your words also seem to be implying that we ought not read super-hero comics because the society sucks? Like I can actually change society and it is my moral obligation to stop pollution? That's one...

    Aged like milk.

    Virtually the same ratings as Superman & Lois on The CW.

    Some mutants wanting to be normal has been covered in the movies, The Gifted, and a little in Legion.

    Remember when Rogue became normal in the movies? Think about Stryker's son.

    It didn't fly with readers in the 1990s either. Please do not condemn an entire era (and the people who lived in it) by pretending 2021 is more morally evolved/superior than 1994.

    X-Men (Marvel mutants in general) always felt so different to me than the rest of the Marvel Universe that at some point (maybe under Morrison or as a result of House of M) they should have existed...

    Your conclusion is correct- Superman was a crusader. However you are completely wrong that he wasn't an unbeatable powerhouse. Even though he's scaled down compared to the later versions, he has no...

    Marvel would be able to use Superman in their other comics as long as they never develop any plots or costume designs which conflict with later versions of Superman. Lawyers will constantly be on...

    So many great cases in this discussion.

    To me, "Worst Era" implies a dark age of sorts, where sales and quality dipped. No buzz.

    I feel the post-Giffen/pre Morrison era was the worst...

    Peter has passive-aggressive "nice guy" traits. Smart and sensitive but tends to snap when the stress piles up. I knew a pillar of the community who had Peter's personality. He pushed his pregnant...

    I'm basically an outcast and not in the target demo because I haven't watched a MCU movie in years. I liked Vision and Scarlett Witch as a kid/teen from the comics but the prerequisites to watch the...

    The Dark Phoenix Saga- I think you just had to be there every month back then to get caught up in the soap opera and surprises. Art is great but the dialog is so wordy and it feels never-ending.
