    According to the article, the cancellation occurred a day after the reservation was made.
  2. If you have an Ipad, it's pretty easy to...

    If you have an Ipad, it's pretty easy to binge-read recent Spider-Man comics at a really cheap price (ten bucks a month for as many comics as you want; as long as it's been published more than six...

    I thought the explanation was that she didn't feel ready in '16 as a newcomer to elected office. Now, she has served more than a full term as Senator, with several years as a prominent member of the...

    One interesting wrinkle is what it means for the mutants to be emerging in a world where they haven't really been mentioned. This could change the metaphor from a persecuted group that has been...

    In the first politics thread, there was some talk about Virginia state delegate Joe Morrisey, who admit the paternity of his teenage secretary's child. There was some argument that he was technically...

    The point on universality raises some interesting questions.

    White guys can see themselves as Peter Parker, but members of minority groups will not. And we get new characters with very specific...

    The late-term abortion fight isn't about the mother's health. Polling is limited, but the polling does suggest that the main reasons for late-term abortions aren't the sad cases where the mother's...

    Racism seems to come from hatred of "the other" but it has to be a group that there's some exposure to. In the US, there isn't much interaction with Maori, so there's less bigotry against them than...

    Fair enough. We've got multiple sub-arguments here. Is Mary Jane Peter's best love interest? Is Mary Jane Peter's most prominent love interest? Should Peter and Mary Jane be married in the comics?...

    Dan Slott discussed his thoughts on the matter on twitter.



    There was some pushback, which he responded to.

    Oh yeah.

    And there are all sorts of different potential sources of influence.

    Earlier today, I listened to a great interview on a podcast (the journalist Sebastian Unger's appearance on...

    Yeah, that's more of a comparison with the entire Marvel Universe than with Spider-Man's story. Miles Morales and Kamala Khan may have new adventures when Peter Parker's story is over, but fans of...
  13. Republicans never winning again barring emergency...

    Republicans never winning again barring emergency is probably wishful thinking on your end. Parties don't die quickly. When they win, they tend to peak and lose support (a pattern for every...

    Is the character supposed to get everything he wants and more in any category?

    That's a second issue, though. The later issues tend to be even lower.
  16. The problem with referring to it as a...

    The problem with referring to it as a concentration camp is that they're not supposed to be here. The World War 2 era concentration camps referred to citizens of their respective nations taken away...

    In addition to electability, there do appear to be other reasons African-American voters are going for Biden. They have a preference for politicians who offer incremental change, which may be one...

    Two more arguments for Kingpin as a great Spider-Man villain...

    He's the bad guy in a great Spider-Man movie (Into the Spider-Verse.)
    No one has surpassed him as the prototypical crime boss.

    I was pretty careful not to claim that Trump had more votes overall than Hillary. That said, the existence of the electoral college was not an obscure secret, the majority of the voters still went...

    Hillary Clinton ran on the most progressive major-party platform in American political history.

    They're using an existing law in a novel way. It wouldn't surprise me if the courts vote it down in the future.

    This is a weak argument, since Crowder wasn't demonitized on Youtube for comments he...
  22. It might be possible, but it would be a very...

    It might be possible, but it would be a very different series. It certainly wouldn't be as funny as Superior Spider-Man, and the sense of humor was a big part of why that one worked.
  23. Agreed. The issue would be if the humor...

    Agreed.

    The issue would be if the humor suggests a willingness to allow something to continue.

    I haven't been recording comics I've read this year, and the summer seems a good opportunity to change that. My goal is 1,000 comics/ 50 graphic novels (defined loosely as OGNs or collections of...

    There are two weak arguments here against Superior Spider-Man.

    Some of what bothers you about Superior Spider-Man has little to do with quality. When you describe "a dude in denial of the coercive...
