    The real-life feuds occasionally make for interesting tell-all stories. ("Dark Side of the Ring" is certainly one of my guilty pleasures, as are Cornette's stories from the territory era.)

    But,...

    Wait, Retribution (totally not Anti-Fa) is signed on to WWE in-character?

    Is that meant to be commentary on the state of WWE creative? The company (on-screen) represents Vince's decision...

    And how well has it worked?

    More importantly, the curtain dropped years ago. There is no need for wrestling angles to draw inspiration from the talents' lives.

    Yes, there were chances to use...

    That would have been funny.

    But, I cannot blame WWE for wanting to stay away from it. The pandemic has become overly politicized, on top of simply being intrusive. WWE is probably banking that...

    The content is mostly good one-shots, including the Bendis Batman I have been wanting since DC signed him.

    Worth picking up.

    I am nevee going to understand the fixation that some people have with the show side of wrestling needing to reflect backstage practicalities.

    No talent is actually being cheated. We are...

    Sympathetic Sasha.... bah.

    I get the reasoning. (WWE needs her to be a face for new fans, especially because she is involved with Star Wars.) But, this ruined one of my favorite tag teams.

    That would have been much better than an Anti-Fa gimmick that (best case) is going to be painfully dated in a few years.

    The only problem is that it would require a half dozen wrestlers the level...

    The Sami Zayn angle is fun. Hopefully, it gets dragged out a bit more.

    The more I think about it, the more annoyed I get by the fact that the Fiend/Foley match is probably never going to...

    Issue 5 shipped this week. As it turns out, "Stealth" is ending with issue 6. Hoping that Image revisits the idea.

    Interesting episode of Smack down. Overall better balance of tone than last week.

    Not sure I like grimdark Bayley. But, the idea of her facing Cross appeals. We know they can have a good...

    Retribution is either going to become irrelevant or *too* relevant (polemical) in the next 6 months. Best way to handle them is to have them get routed in a massive brawl during a slow week on...

    I listened to part of the Cantwell interview (kinked above).

    Not sure how optimistic I am about making Iron Man "relevant" by reverting to the Bronze Age. (Is there really a need to go back...

    I always saw post-"FlashPoint" Krypto as a white husky or shepherd. Regardless, Krypto works better as an indeterminate breed. (Vaguely beagle, maybe some pit bull.)

    I agree that David is showing his age. But, he is aging better than many of his contemporaries.

    Not sure why he went for the "impotent heroes" line (talking about real world...

    That was a *dark* episode of "Smackdown", particularly given that " Smackdown" is supposed to be the lighter WWE brand.

    Bayley attacking Sasha worked in narrative terms. But, it was a tone...

    Waid's "History of the Marvel Universe" places "Future Imperfect" after "Days of Future Past", Deathlok's future (once described as the 90s), 2099, Machine Man's future (the distant year of...2020),...

    [QUOT.E]A lot of perception of Reigns changed after leaving to treat his leukemia. [/QUOTE]

    It really shouldn't. But, yes, it probably will.

    Heyman's job might simply be to remind audiences that Roman is a bad guy. Given everything that Roman has been through (which is impossible for audiences to not know about) and the fact that his...

    "Smackdown" was a mixed bag.

    The contract-signing plot was...forced (particularly the bit with Gulak).

    Riddle and Shorty was not bad, but felt perfunctory. Hardy versus Shinseki was good. ...

    Iron Man 2020#6:
    Over the course of those series, I made several predictions.
