    The extended Stacy family never had any real purpose in the stories in terms of conflict and so on. Whether it's Jill Stacy or Arthur Stacy or who knows.

    The only Stacys that matter are George...

    He's not big enough in terms of fame compared to Ultron, Doom, Thanos.

    In the classic period, the first release of a movie depending on its success could last for years. Gone with the Wind didn't have a short release window and skedaddled. It actually stayed on screen...

    In the '30s you had Radio, you had theatre, you had dances, and while sports was still not as big today it was developing. After all one of the biggest figures of the '30s was Babe Ruth. So it's not...

    What I meant was that Secret Empire's backlash might have made Marvel nervous about leaning in to certain political ideas and matters. That's all.

    I actually agree with you about the fact that...

    Passion of the Christ for one thing, then you have Three Hundred by Zack Snyder, WWE is quite popular among red and blue states and Vince McMahon's wife works for Trump's administration (or at least...

    I love that expression where he decides on his "evil plan". It's really exaggerated and staged evil and then he puts his arms around Jameson and brings him close...it's like that South Park episode...
  9. Poll: Why can Peter stay with Ben while they can't...

    Why can Peter stay with Ben while they can't inform him about Mary Parker being pregnant with a second child?



    Those characters are bad guys and amoral figures. Whereas Richard and Mary Parker...
  10. Poll: I think if you can't answer those questions, then...

    I think if you can't answer those questions, then you should remove it and retcon it as extraneous. A good origin, a good retcon, a good addition, works best when this stuff is answered or...
  11. Poll: It's thoughtless that they didn't inform Ben and...

    It's thoughtless that they didn't inform Ben and May about their second child the minute Mary realized she was pregnant. If you are government secret agents or spies and have a kid "in the field" or...
  12. Poll: Apparently Teresa Parker is Peter's "younger...

    Apparently Teresa Parker is Peter's "younger sister". And not older. Apparently she was a baby they had in Europe but died before they could inform anyone...which strikes me as being supremely...
  13. Poll: They are clones. Not brothers. Teresa is claiming...

    They are clones. Not brothers. Teresa is claiming actual biological descent from Richard and Mary Parker. Huge difference.



    Well Spider-Gwen, Jessica Drew Spider-Woman, and others fulfill that...
  14. "Orange Skull" would have been too literary a...

    "Orange Skull" would have been too literary a reference for Trump supporters to grok and I doubt many of them would be interested in a folio collection of Golden Age comics anyway. So it does feel...
  15. Poll: Zdarsky gave him Jonah to do that. And before...

    Zdarsky gave him Jonah to do that. And before that, JMS gave him Ezekiel.



    As a SHIELD agent and super-spy in an outfit and so on, not sure if Theresa fits that role. She's a superheroine in...

    I guess. But eventually Teresa will be retconned into someone who mistakenly thought she was Peter's sister or something.

    That's definitely going to happen.
  17. Poll: Eventually they will just retcon Teresa into a...

    Eventually they will just retcon Teresa into a "not-a-Parker-after-all". I mean that's why it's been underplayed and unacknowledged.

    I doubt Zdarsky himself believed Teresa really was Peter's...

    Jameson didn't want to hire Smythe originally. He was convinced into doing it by another Bugle employee...Peter Parker. Peter needed cash because it was a lean week for villains so he convinced...

    If you can check out Essentials collection of Doctor Strange during the Ditko run. That's one of the best comics ever. Especially in terms of art. You will never see stuff like that anywhere else....
  20. Poll: To be honest, I think Zdarsky's run is mostly...

    To be honest, I think Zdarsky's run is mostly okay, above average, and entertaining but it has two masterpieces -- "My Dinner with Jonah" and #310 -- that raises the value of the "okay". Like that...

    There was a Spider-Man team at the time of the marriage. Editor Jim Salicrup, Writers PAD, and J. M. DeMatteis, David Michelinie, artist Sal Buscema, outgoing Spider-Man editor/writer Jim Owsley....

    Mephisto is not a big enough villain to headline an event. Remember for a good number of comics readers, OMD was their introduction to him. Before, Mephisto would have been remembered if at all as...

    I saw it listed as 1973 at some places. I am sorry for this.

    So why did they do a story over multiple issues rather than have Uatu the Watcher relate what the editor's intent and statement was in a single issue? Or for that matter simply do a wall of text in a...

    Okay, on one hand some people need to re-learn the norms of serial storytelling but on the other hand OMD can't be brought in because it has no internal meaning as a story-in-itself and can only be...
