    How thick of an Australian accent should Boomerang have?

    I've mainly read him as having one, but apparently he was merely born in Australia but has lived in the US since childhood. Come to think...
  2. What do you think of Nick Spencerís Boomerang?

    Many Spider-Man writers have a signature character and I think Boomerang is Spencerís. For most of his history, Boomerang has been portrayed as a D-list thug but Nick Spencer has played a major role...

    Current direction? What, you mean introducing new heroes as they've always done?

    Also look at the post above you.

    Again, this goes back to the whole "inspiration not adaptation" thing I was talking about. The general feel, setting, team as superheroes, school, melodrama, aliens, and the modernization are all...

    Why are so you sarcastic and snide? I'm just pointing out that it was liked, and many (myself included) enjoyed it. Astonishing X-Men was a gateway for new fans back then, so it did something right.

    That's your opinion. It's one of the better '00s runs and I can see how the general setting would be adapted to screen.

    Riveting. Explain?

    I gave good reasons as to why I think Astonishing X-Men will be a major inspiration to the MCU and you just say... that.

    Ultimate X-Men?!

    NO NO NO! I don't want mutants as part of the super soldier serum and I don't want the bastardization of the many characters.

    Anyways, Astonishing felt pretty different from...

    Plus, another thing to consider is that Astonishing introduced S.W.O.R.D., and that played heavily throughout the series. Spider-Man: Far From Home practically teased S.W.O.R.D. in the post-credits,...

    Are we really pulling this card? It's not even true.

    Well of course. No MCU movie is a straight adaptation of a story, not even Civil War beyond the basic premise. But I mean as the overall base inspiration that informs the MCU X-Men. The MCU draws...
  12. Do you think Astonishing X-Men will be the base inspiration of MCU X-Men?

    The idea came to mind when I remembered how the MCU takes heavily from modern stuff both in 616 and Ultimate, and uses classic stories more in...

    How good was JMS' Spider-Man overall?

    J. Michael Straczynski, or JMS, is a sci-fi TV writer who's also been a lover of comics, and Spider-Man from 2001 to 2007 was his big comics impact. He was tasked with making Spider-Man relevant...

    This is weird. For a long time, I thought swapping around villains was Marvel's shtick.

    I'll have to look into this more.

    Reminds me of how the Shi'ar originated in X-Men but have impacted just about everything from the Avengers to Cosmic Marvel.

    In the '70s, Deathlok had a comic not tied to the main universe that was a sci-fi. Honestly, there's so much legacy, shuffling and inter-dimensional stuff to this that I get confused, but the...

    Some more X-Men examples:

    S.W.O.R.D. was introduced in Astonishing X-Men as the space-based division of S.H.I.E.L.D., which leans more heavily to General MU and Avengers. The organization played...

    Thanks for pointing that out. However, it still remains the the Savage Land was introduced in the Golden Age before becoming a key element of the X-Men mythos. To be fair, it wasn't Claremont who did...

    Can we have Mystique NOT be Magneto's lackey in an adaptation for once?

    Random thought:

    Would he be up for a Thunderbolts relaunch? I know they were antagonists in the new Punisher series but they need a title.
