  1. That's basically true of any run on Spider-Man...

    That's basically true of any run on Spider-Man post-OMD. I mean if you read Back in Black, skipped OMD/BND, and Slott's entire run, and then read Spencer's first issue...you can pick up right where...
  2. Honestly, I think Mary Jane has become her own...

    Honestly, I think Mary Jane has become her own thing in the same sense that Tony Stark is no longer simply "Marvel Bruce Wayne".

    People forget this but Mary Jane married Peter in the main comics...

    It’s Peter and Mary Jane.

    The overall best love story is Daredevil Born Again in terms of single story arc.
  4. It's more that Brand New Day was promoted and...

    It's more that Brand New Day was promoted and sold as a kind of justification for One More Day. Quesada said that the marriage restricted stories and so on. A brassy title like "brand new day" (which...

    To paraphrase JFK, those who make non-partisan SCOTUS impossible make court packing inevitable.
  6. The Supreme Court isn't all powerful or...

    The Supreme Court isn't all powerful or permanently incapable of challenge.

    Dred Scott is the operative example. The SCOTUS had an exalted reputation in the run up to the Civil War, and Taney...

    Among (some) writers and (some) editors, there's a resentment to Mary Jane because they can't bottle her into being "a" love interest like they can with Felicia Hardy or Gwen. She is the love...

    Kushner's interviews with Woodward is hilarious. It's like that scene where the villain explains his evil plan and then laughs aloud at his genius.

    With Norman situation is different. Unlike the villains in the MCU Spidey movies (Vulture, Mysterio) so far, he's a villain who has been featured in a previous film, and he's a villain who has been...

    I honestly don't get that at all from Spencer. The author of Superior Foes of Spider-Man which is about the humanity and humor in the most treacherous criminals doesn't strike me as being such a...

    That's nothing new. People forget this, but Marc Webb's TASM-1 was actually well recieved by fans when it came out at the time. It got decent reviews and there were people at the time, unironically,...

    To me this issue felt odd.

    It feels like Cantwell had plans for a longer ongoing but he was then told that he needed to wrap up, so he basically put the plot of multiple story arcs into a single...

    Well look at the X-Men Films. Okay that might not sound like an optimistic opener, but hear me out. After X-Men The Last Stand, the franchise was backed into the corner...people were writing them off...

    Well Zdarsky wrote Spectacular and that was pretty fun. And then alongside JMS, you had Jenkins on Spectacukar, Millar on MK:SM, Fraction's Annual, PAD's FNSM. It was a good period of Spider-Man on...

    Mary Jane's appearance was certainly something built up and long expected by readers at the time. Gerry Conway talked about reading the Lee-Ditko run and wanting to know who MJ was, and feeling that...

    Fair point that. ITSV was the worst thing to happen to Tom Holland from a brand perspective. It took from him forever the idea of being the definitive Spider-Man for a generation of kids. Now he's...

    Obama's administration oversaw Dodd-Frank and the Consumer Protection Bureau (aka Elizabeth Warren's ticket to national fame). An action which put him on the s--t list of America's oligarchs, as did...

    I think it should be animation mainly. Not live-action.

    AC as a franchise is too specific to what games do for it to be translated to a live-action medium. The lore and other stuff isn't...

    It's a natural tendency to want to make a silver lining and so on...that somehow this kind of misrule might create a better world and so on...but we shouldn't fall into that kind of trap.

    If you take a look at a current Spider-Man comic, you’ll find that he’s maybe twenty years old, he worries a lot about whats right and what’s...

    The flipside to that is the live action movies don't go far in establishing her as Peter's true love...first we had Kirsten Dunst's Mary Jane, then Emma Stone's Gwen, now Zendaya's MJ who is Michelle...

    I am not so sure about that. The historical precedent is rather the opposite given the two party system.

    After the Civil War, and Reconstruction, and the government doing a lot to get Civil...

    I honestly don't think he's gonna have a choice to do anything other than expand the courts.



    Packing the courts would, in theory, be more easily done and less controversial than impeaching...
