    Yep. But DC's making money isn't our motivation. I think most of us get the idea that DC is in this for their own bottom line, but when the Wednesday Warrior in me sees the week's pile I get all...

    I don't think a Crisis now can make things any worse. Continuity seems to fluctuate from title to title. Could it possibly get worse? Well, yeah. But I truly think the goal of DC is to "fix"...

    This is a valid observation. But hey, if we're Legion fans, it's because of the stories that have already been published. We'd be somewhat biased in what we like for LSH.

    I have some doubts...

    I'd imagine the events in Hickman's X-books may change the Sue/Emma realtionship somewhat. Or it should based on the FF's appearance in the House of X book.

    I can go along with this. The human kids might have aging differences, but with Onome being quiet and mature to start and Bentley being unable able to grow up, the characters can remain somewhat the...

    And that is the problem with reboots. A reboot is someone thinking they can take an idea and improve on it instead of adding to an ongoing story. Instead of playing in someone's sandbox, you're...

    Sue going straight for Aidan's wife was an example of her direct nature. The scene with Doom from 1234 was another example. Granted, they aren't so much personality traits but they do exhibit the...

    That makes me feel even better about it, Abe. Iron maiden had started the thread and I did not want to get into it without having read the issue first. My LCS is shuffling stock among their stores...

    I remain convinced Sue has a white trash streak deep inside her and she can fall into a less polished demeanor. She's human, after all, and compared to her teammates, she's a behavioral icon, but...

    I have decided to buy this. It seems silly considering what an FF fanboy I am, but I'm really trying to keep a trimmer line. However, the loss of Squirrel Girl (Doreen cancels, Victor starts?...

    The series was brilliant in that it took old ideas, kept them valid, and expanded upon them. And this was all done with the best work of the day. The large cast was used although there were some...

    One might quibble that even though it IS a flying bathtub, unless someone is actually taking a bath, it doesn't qualify. But we can always stretch definitions. I considered a fantasti-car myself...

    OK, they're not actually in the bath yet, but come on, it was the silver age.

    Yes, the HM is an honorable mention. It's rewarding to get more participants in our weekly adventure here.

    Congratulations to foxley for a cover which mixes beauty and power with a restricted color palette which provides us with a powerful picture.

    And now, what has the captain learned this week? ...

    Are you suggesting a "dummy" Legion set up to be changed again and soon? I'd throw out terms like paranoid and conspiracy theories, but it does sound as if DC is working up to something big even in...

    Iron Maiden 'cuz of the literal interpretation of T'Challa going off into the sunset.

    And an HM for the return of ... ABE!

    I think it's pretty clear DC is going through a major conflagration of events right now. Timelines and worlds are being shuffled and that's been pretty constant since the Rebirth special. Now the...

    Mike's Amazing World of Comics' Newsstand is an incredible resource for investigating old books.

    The point is that we don't know how old the JSA are "now". The existence of an Infinity, Inc. would mean the JSA were old enough to have adult kids.

    The JSA, to me, represent a multi-generation...

    Reed and Doom were big players in Hickman's New Avengers. Sure, there were surprises, but a story has a surprise when we don't see the development coming. Hickman's Avengers and New Avengers run...

    I'm going to accept your statements as fact. This discussion is all conjecture and evn IF Hickman were to admit what the incentives and genesis of the story were, there will always be some doubt.
  24. I'm not sure that kind of logic applies. Doom is...

    I'm not sure that kind of logic applies. Doom is head and shoulders above the rest of Marvel's villains but since this is a story in which the characters are all selected by Hickman, it's just as...

    I think DClock's been clear in that the DC Universe wasn't created by Manhattan, but was changed by him. Exactly how and to what extent we're still not fully aware of yet.
