    Perhaps his embrace was only partial for a long time? That seems to be what Moira is indicating....he understood the stakes, but needed a lot of convincing to make the radical changes necessary for...

    I very explicitly said it didn't. That last sentence is rich in light of that fact though!

    You should try to read that again. For someone to whine about disingenuous questions, you've brought a ton of it in pretty much every reply in this thread.

    Hickman, Marvel, and all of us enjoying...

    Great post. If someone is personally not excited that's fine. But it's evident this IS exciting for a lot of hardcore and casual fans. It doesn't make the detractors wrong, but it is evidence that...

    It's totally ok that you don't. Different strokes for different folks.

    For me, this doesn't redefine the X-men at all. They are still not harming humans, they've just stopped pretending they can...

    I won't deny that. I think it's an exciting thing to consider.

    Can he stick the landing to this premise? That's the question and I'm engaged with finding out. It has literally been decades for...

    Hickman was never going to make everyone happy. A few people not enjoying it or having sour grapes is to be expected.

    I don't think Hickman or Marvel cares. The reception has been nothing...

    Worrying that retcons happen is what is meaningless. They happen constantly. And will in the future too.

    We wouldn't have 60 years of comic book stories without them. Or they'd be the kind of...

    This entire post by you is subjective. It's ok you don't like it, but I don't know who you're trying to convince other than yourself.

    I would suggest people's excitement is not primarily about mutants winning....it's about the stories finally being new, fresh, and fun. The X-men haven't felt this way in decades.

    Retcons are a...

    Agree completely. And to those that stomp their feet about canon and retcons and the like, I'd say this: You already recognize the spongy nature whether you acknowledge it or not. Cyclops was an...

    Makes sense. Bernie has never cared much, even during his time in the Senate, about broadening out his appeal.

    You're right, that's true, but I think that's why Warren is leaning so hard into calling herself a capitalist. It won't change what the right will do, but it might change the way voters feel about...

    It's weird, I think he wants to use the term socialist (even though he isn't one) as a way to garner left-wing support....but is completely oblivious or indifferent to the negative connotations that...

    Maybe....but how many comic writers have managed to write any sagas that would fit that middle ground the last 20 years?

    It will only continue to get harder as time goes on. I sympathize with...

    Most of these are cultural factors. The dissolution of the EU is a threat for sure but none of these things are certainties. Risks, yes, but far from inevitable. Especially since they've been...

    But part of the argument for capitalism is that the prosperity and competitiveness aids all of humanity. It leads to more innovation, risk taking, and a variety of other aspects that have...

    I don't know how you expect to get fresh, new stories without some degree of retcon. You'll get constant retreads of the same stories already told. Or you'll get what Morrison did - bastardize the...

    By what measure are they collapsing?

    And I can't possibly see how an argument of "Their economies lack incentive and stagnate!" is at all a good argument from a pro-socialist point of view.

    Well, why would you spend a lot of time and effort appealing to someone who tells you they aren't worth approaching? I doubt many politicians are spending a lot of time and money trying to woo the...

    You pretty much have to give up. You'll drive yourself crazy. Now, you can hold writers to making good choices and characterizations and all of that, that's fair. But what harm does a retcon do? ...

    Won't someone please think of the canon!!!!

    Worrying about retcons and continuity in comic books is like complaining water is wet.

    Most of Europe follows these models. You can disagree about the extent of the progressivism to your liking....but they exist.

    There are many progressive capitalist countries throughtout the world. Including those often cited by Bernie. So while those concerns are valid, there are similar concerns with other models. I'd...

    This is a flawed mentality. You can feel we're settling and rail against the "lesser of two evils" thinking, I won't take you up on those because those concerns do have validity. But arching...
