    I'd also mention that all that credibility the Fantastic Four built up went up in smoke after Stamford. Hell, Johnny got jumped by some anti-superhero punks on the street taking their anti-superhero...

    Interesting addendum. Ultimately, humans and mutants may be more interdependent than they (want to) realize.

    And after Stamford, nobody gave a damn where somebody's powers came from, they just saw a bunch of reckless yahoos in costumes who were causing mass death and destruction in their superpowered grudge...

    Would be interesting to see MJ with a symbiote in canon, but not sure if that's where they're going.

    You do raise a good point. The mutants-as-minority metaphor is a commentary on prejudice and privilege and how they can go hand in hand, where individuals from the dominant group are judged as that,...

    The distinction should be pointless. For all the fear and loathing humanity as a whole has toward mutants, a lot of the biggest threats to planet Earth and humankind don't necessarily come from...

    And she already snapped once, way back in the day. You'd think they'd send her to a half-decent therapist or something. Then again, these are the same people who let Carol Danvers go off with the guy...

    Sure was and is. For what it's worth, though, I did like Joelle Jones when she was on the Spider-Women crossover with Spider-Gwen (now Ghost-Spider) and Silk.

    Pretty much, and as ed2962 said, that's literally --- not just basically --- how they make money. Considering how it's led to a spate of online harassment campaigns against the targets of their...

    Definitely agree with you on both of those steps. That said, I think the reason Civil War turned out as it did was that so many of the writers disagreed with the premise of it and went out of their...

    That was from Spider-Force #1 by Christopher Priest during Spider-Geddon, right?



    Thanks for sharing.

    Pretty much this, because as we've seen in stories like Civil War and Dark Reign, (some of) the Avengers don't do that well, emotionally and psychologically speaking, when the public is against them...

    That would have worked, and I also liked Spider-Man's interaction with Hope. As silly as "with great power, there must also come great responsibility" can come off to the more cynical and jaded of...

    Maybe, though I personally see it as an extension of mutants as a metaphor for persecuted and marginalized groups in real life, in that said groups turn out to be far more essential in the course of...

    Agreed. Humankind as a whole shouldn't be so uniformly genocidal toward mutants or accepting of genocidal measures and actions against mutants.

    It's cool. I still remember how exciting it was to have Jessica Drew on New Avengers --- then about three or four years later, it turns out she's a Skrull. Bummer.

    Shaw was beyond disgusting for that, but we shouldn't be surprised; as one of the chief powerhouses (financially and politically speaking) of the Hellfire Club, he's made it clear again and again...
