    Raimi's take on Norman was pretty close to Stan Lee's. He was cold, ambitious, and capable of criminal acts before the Goblin formula drove him insane, but he still has moments of lucidity where he...

    Which is weird, because Stern only had what, a few issues left before he would have revealed Hobgoblin's true identity?

    I do wonder, though, would Hobgoblin have been as big of a deal if the...

    I remembered the Hobgoblin and was pretty hyped for Hobgoblin Lives...but I had no recollection of Rodericky Kingsley whatsoever by the time that rolled around. So the resolution was a little...

    It all makes perfect sense now. Kid was clearly devastated that his horror movie fix was cut off, so he became a horror himself!!!!

    Another thing I'm wondering about: will Krav-enom ever make another appearance, or was that just a tease?

    I saw it twice in theaters and loved it. One of the strongest X-Men films IMO.

    It ties up some loose ends nicely while also feeling open-ended enough that fans can imagine where things might go...

    Sure. Human beings in general seem wired to see things in black and white, and it takes a conscious effort to dive into the complexities of a human existence. We tend to prefer our religion and...

    This is just my personal reading, but I don't think Jewish theology was thoroughly disentangled from an early pagan concept of deities until the writings of the prophets. That's when it seems, at...

    Yeah, I was initially thinking, "They just ruined Nick Fury for the sake of a gag." And then that after-credits scene. Genius.
