    Yeah and he attended AA meetings in Bendis' run as well. But he wasn't anywhere near to what he was in Michelinie's run.



    If by method you mean "Marvel Method", i.e. Jack Kirby and Ditko do...

    Because Batman and Superman deal with similar issues about "protecting their loved ones". Superman is protecting his parents, his friends, his wife, and these days his son from external threats and...
  3. Both of them have historically been the least...

    Both of them have historically been the least liked members of the Fantastic Four, as opposed to Thing and Johnny Storm.

    They are also a major example of a poorly written marriage in superhero...

    "Neck-and-Neck" from the start is a huge stretch. In the late 30s and early 40s, National Comics (aka Proto-DC) would see Fawcett Comics or Quality Comics (which had Plastic Man) as its main...

    Ben Reilly was actually mentioned in Spencer's newest and latest issue and has an in-panel flashback too.

    The main thing the Clairvoyant thing confirmed is that 2099 is one of many possible alternate timelines and not "The Future".

    I actually liked the interactions between Peter and Teresa here which...

    So cool that so many people are coming out to bat for HUNTED. I thought the praise at the time was a little lukewarm but now it's happily rising as people appreciate how solid an event that was.

    This website has a good insight:
    http://zak-site.com/Great-American-Novel/realtime_marvel_universe.html

    To me Marvel has two great "eras". There's the 60s with Lee-Kirby-Ditko, and then there's...
  10. Stan Lee only wrote the Avengers for a short bit...

    Stan Lee only wrote the Avengers for a short bit before passing it to Roy Thomas who really expanded upon it. For his run on FF and The Mighty Thor, he had Jack Kirby doing the heavy lifting.

    On...

    I would qualify that since Spider-Man post-Ditko while great is not as good and unified as Ditko.

    Ditko had a much better handle of character dynamic than Stan did. Whereas Stan was often...

    It's extremely difficult to measure Lee as a writer because of Marvel Method. I tend to think that he largely followed what Kirby and Ditko plotted and their notes in the pages that they left behind....
  13. Oh man, the Savage Land issues of 103-104 by Roy...

    Oh man, the Savage Land issues of 103-104 by Roy Thomas, thanks for reminding me. Far and away the dumbest, weirdest and most discordant issues written in ASM in that time. The idea of Peter, Jonah,...
  14. Ok, boomer.

    Ok, boomer.
  15. Yeah, Spider-Man dealing with "celebrity" is good...

    Yeah, Spider-Man dealing with "celebrity" is good for just one issue...AF#15 in fact. After that it's redundant.

    I am pretty sure one-way-or-another the "status quo" will be reset by the end,...
  16. Spencer's run is far more character driven than...

    Spencer's run is far more character driven than plot driven, and the titles have not been that way since JMS left.

    When writers do a character-driven take it's a little hard to tell that they...
  17. Dan Slott and others were also restoring an...

    Dan Slott and others were also restoring an earlier status-quo rather than starting something new. So from that tack, virtually any run on Spider-Man can be dismissed.

    And again it's only been a...

    Fair enough.

    I just take exception to this idea that characters in comics are blank slates that any writer/artist can automatically fix and make the next big thing or whatever, i.e. that...
  19. The Witcher has a heavy focus on sex and...

    The Witcher has a heavy focus on sex and violence, stuff that Star Wars owing to its all-ages limit, doesn't tackle.

    So I think it will be compared to Game of Thrones, i.e. people will know it's...

    Roger Stern treated him that way as well. Like if you read the original Hoggoblin saga, it was all about Norman's legacy and his lingering impact on Spider-Man's cast and world. When he returned in...

    The X-Men had a single great decade (The Eighties), and then after that they had patches of good years. Like the 2000s was weak but it started out strong with Morrison's New X-Men followed by...

    Norman Osborn/Green Goblin is the Spider-Man villain with most appearances across 616 Continuity. And overall, he trails only Doctor Doom and Magneto in terms of most appearances by any marvel...

    Keanu as Doom is an interesting choice. The real problem is why would you want an actor with such a distinctive face to hide it behind a mask for the majority of the time, and on top of that, as a...

    My first introduction to Doctor Doom was JMS' "Doomed Affairs", and it's incredible how a single issue captures and distills the essence of four major character (Peter, MJ, Cap, Doom) where all of...

    In the JMS era, Spider-Man traveled with Ezekiel to Africa and South America on a kind of quasi-Indiana Jones thing. This culminates in Book of Ezekiel, where Spider-Man ends up trapped in a tomb in...
