    It’s dark, wet… The smile may be optional but the umbrella is very much needed. CaptainEurope.

    Not at all. But from an author’s point of view, a revelation must have consequences. Just throwing names is a bit short. What changes from being a human with super-powers to a mutant with...

    It’s the responsability of the author to make feel what an action really means… otherwise it just feels cheap.

    Agree. :) From my point of view, a reader’s point of view, the tragi-comedy that has been Wanda’s life is almost comical, but done in a good way, by authors who liked her (except House of M)… but...

    Stories that aren’t plausible are bad stories. Why would they matter?

    So, you must have imagined a fun story that comes along with this idea… I mean a fun story for the reader not for the character. Wanda didn’t handle well the “Gosh, my father is Magneto, no it’s not...

    If you are walking on the edge of a winding gorge, you feel the need to live in the moment, you don’t think about the past nor the future…

    Which author doesn’t do that? Characters need to be fleshed out. You can find a part of an author’s obsessions, interests in every character. If we have been able to see Claremont’s kinks to come...

    What for? What would it mean? Is it becoming a member of some aristocracy of super-heroes? The reaction of the others to this new “status”? Being “feared and hunted” when it was not the case...

    Without going to these lengths, the pressure of social conventions on the individual is still stronger than in Western countries: Amélie Nothomb described it in her novel “Fear and Trembling”.

    As I didn’t know what a Barney the dinosaur looked like, I did a little search… and it seems obvious to me: Barney is so much hated because he is horribly ugly. Even Denver the last dinosaur is...

    Like adhering to a new religion?

    You can think it in another way: a character made by another author is not the same character. Using another name or another codename acknowledges this fact.

    The sun almost always shines in comics? Finding umbrellas isn’t that easy…

    The image is a bit pale but still it’s my choice:

    Luckily, Riv86672 was there to break the tie.

    Of course, I would have overcome my reluctance and do it myself… if you didn’t show up (like Zorro). I wouldn’t have left the contest in difficulties,...

    Congratulations, Shalla Bal! I guess I’m at least as sensitive as Tami: I didn’t want to look at these covers anymore to vote…

    But, luckily, Riv86672 was there.

    Claremont’s era, of course…

    They were adventures around the world and beyond, the X-men were good people fighting bad people, whatever their DNA. And it was high on emotion.
