    the Luthor
    It's rarely executed well for one thing. Either Luthor's plans are too Mary Sue-ish in its complexity for it to be believably undone by Superman punching him or other characters are made...
  2. I agree about them being different. With Norman,...

    I agree about them being different. With Norman, you have a social dimension that you don't with Luthor. For instance, nobody other than Norman Osborn could have been Head of HAMMER. Think about it,...

    My rankings are Dafoe Goblin > Aaron Davis Prowler > Liv Octopus > Keaton Vulture > Molina Ock > Gyllenhaal Mysterio.
  4. The thing is there was a point in Doom's life...

    The thing is there was a point in Doom's life where he genuinely was a good person. In his youth when he was a caring Romani boy. Even Mark Waid's Unthinkable acknowledged that. There was never a...
  5. The letters page you guys really need to read is...

    The letters page you guys really need to read is ASM#125. That has actual death threats printed on it directed to Gerry Conway. It also has Roy Thomas' famous bit about saying that the snap killed...
  6. Have you read Whatever Happened to the Man of...

    Have you read Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow? Luthor is pretty much a non-entity there. And that's considered by a lot of people to be the best Superman story.



    But we got a lot of...

    The final page was pencilled by Romita at Conway’s behest. Conway wasn’t okay with Kane’s original version.
  8. Being "relevant" doesn't make for being an...

    Being "relevant" doesn't make for being an effective villain. Having a character sorta reflect some topical beat and figure of import doesn't by itself lead to better stories. POTUS Lex didn't lead...
  9. The latter is good but too sentimental and it...

    The latter is good but too sentimental and it mostly just editorializes the original story. I mean the epilogue of ASM#122 is one of the single most iconic pages in Spider-Man history and considered...

    Luthor is an example of a character who has this outsize reputation as this great supervillain but on the whole I just don't get him as a character. I don't think he's a good villain. He's excellent...

    Interesting list. I think we can quibble about the rankings and so on.

    I would personally add Kraven's Last Hunt (because Mary Jane is absolutely the emotional center of that story), Roger...

    Businessman Lex was modeled on Frank Miller's Kingpin in his Daredevil run.

    You want a good sense of who Lex was before, then read Superman Vs. The Amazing Spider-Man, he's basically a bald dude...

    That argument didn't fly with Siegel and Shuster when people defended DC against them, it won't fly now either.
  14. Yes, but one must not pretend that this was...

    Yes, but one must not pretend that this was commonly known back in the '70s. That's true now, thanks to the internet where every part of a character's history is online, but that wasn't true back in...

    People forget that Batman comics borrowed a lot of influence from Spider-Man in the '70s. In the '70s, Steve Gerber, Denny O'Neill and others thought to update Batman, so they moved Batman out of...

    This is where Quesada is going "And this is why Peter shouldn't grow up" since Peter aging would mean MJ would age and she wouldn't be beautfiul forever.

    I mean come on, there's more to MJ than...

    MJ and Peter are about 59 in 2006, the year LF#5 is set. Peter was 15 in 1962 and aged from here...

    You already see that with"dad rock". Many people see rock music by the Rolling Stones or even punk rock like Sex Pistols and the Clash as "dad rock", and even Heavy Metal is falling into that.

    I think Peter's son Benjy will die. But yeah, the tragedy that awaits Spider-Man's final years would be the death of a child. It's the ultimate tragedy after all, that's how Michael Corleone was...

    What you mean is reversion of characters to earlier jobs. What characters work on isn't tied to what they are currently doing and so on. Sure Slott gave Peter a lot of fancy jobs but he did that by...

    We've seen one version of MJ as an old woman before in PAD's non-canon epilogue to that story he did in FNSM.

    She looks more or less like Aunt May in the Spider-Man PS4 game. That version of May...
  22. The Night Gwen Stacy Died is a story that ends...

    The Night Gwen Stacy Died is a story that ends with setting up Peter and MJ as the important romance, so I don't see how that takes away from the argument that MJ has been Peter's most prominent,...

    The stuff about Spider-Man having a secret identity and civilian supporting cast and a long-lasting romantic relationship and marriage was all done in-page in Marvel Comics well before Toy Story came...

    The YouTube channel seems more legit than others. This is more than your usual clickbait fan stuff. Not everyone on YouTube is a hack but not being a hack doesn't mean you are by default right,...

    I don't know if this is the whole and complete truth because it's not like Sony in the Raimi and ASM movies made 100% totally faithful versions of those characters then either.

    I think there was...
