    One minor point which really bothered me was Sue saying "hurry up and fix that darn rocket". I like that Sue will occasionally let loose with an expletive. I see that as part of her nature and a...

    I saw Him as more of an Old Testament God in the beginning of the story. Certainly played for comic value, but the attitude was very OT. And if OT was Christian, we wouldn't have needed Christ.

    It's a trivial detail, but does anyone else think it's odd that there's an ad for the band "Breaking Benjamin" on the back cover of Fantastic Four 664, the issue out today?

    I think so, but I've never seen them. I do know it took a while for it to happen though. Shang's father has been retconned and current stories handle it differently. The Sax Rohmer characters of...

    A couple of other examples which affected reprint rights. I'm not sure if this MTIO was ever reprinted. MOKF eventually did get collected.

    I don't think we're that far off on our assessments of this. If it were a "relationship" that turns out to be different than the Crystal one, it very well could be incentive for Johnny to emotional...

    At the risk of seeming to be a Slott apologist, the actual mentioning of the Sky situation as being "Crystal all over again" can be taken as a sign that this is meant to be different. And yes,...

    It's odd that this hasn't been mentioned yet as it's classic.
