    The annual is probably my favorite issue of King's entire run, and that's impressive to say the least.

    Also, a perfect read for Valentine's!

    I think Iris' competence has gone up dramatically post-Crisis, even before the mirror episode. I'm really liking the direction they've taken her reporting on the show. And I think the aspects that...

    I feel like Gwen Stacy's a problematic character to retroactively address since her characterization was relatively flat during the Lee/Romita years and the stuff that sticks out doesn't reflect well...
  4. In terms of the approach to the overall line,...

    In terms of the approach to the overall line, it's one of my favorite eras. I really like how every creative team got to do their own thing. It was nice to take an extended break from the crossovers....

    I can't recall, is it ever said she's fallen on hard times financially? I thought the focus was more her disillusionment and if so, the desert setting fits her attempt to recast herself as a rugged...

    Alfred is comparable to a parent whose child has chosen military or police service. He's very proud and he recognizes the important work that Bruce does, but he'd prefer Bruce have a more normal and...

    I don't think the CW's Oliver Queen was ever a liberal icon. This actually seemed like a point of frustration for Amell, who, going by his comments, wanted to lean into that aspect of the character...

    I'm curious why the housekeepers got left behind, too, given that Raffi said things were about to get hotter. Are we to believe that they'll be left alone once Picard is gone? Seems unlikely given...

    It's also by the ASM creative team and references events from ASM. So I'd say it's definitely canon.

    The Spectacular Spider-Man Magazine #2, which featured the tense dinner scene that was adapted for Raimi's SM1.

    There's a huge difference between 'hard to get hold of' and impossible. The cyclical nature of comics demands that Norman gets varying levels of comeuppance, a constant rising and falling like...

    Don't get me wrong, I've enjoyed most if not all of the stories listed here. But I think Norman is at his strongest as a legacy of evil, the anti-Uncle Ben corrupting everything he touches from...

    I really like that stretch of Norman Osborn stories from around 1974 to 1995. They're all so good!

    I mean, Tony Stark also arguably makes a lot of sense as an evil version of Tony Stark.

    He clearly didn't fail as a designer...the public failed to recognize his genius!

    Sticking around would have ended up with him going to prison, since Spider-Man was wanted at the time. He did actually have a conversation with the police officers but you're right about being...

    I'm enjoying the show so far and I'm fine with the pacing.

    The intro music lacks any kind of emotional heft, though. I get that the show is a bit more downbeat but it's also about a very...

    Raimi gives the best sense of the toll being Spider-Man takes on Peter's personal life.

    I liked Harry Osborn's arc, even if it didn't quite live up to its potential.

    I don't think Harry is shown to be a terrible person, at least no more so than Peter and MJ are at certain points....

    You make a good point. Perhaps I've been unfair to the butler.



    I guess after the "Osborn butler, part-time forensic scientist" spinoff got cancelled, there was no point...

    I wish they would have gone with the idea that the Osborn butler was a figment of Harry's imagination. It would have made Harry's mental state that much clearer. As it is, the butler comes across as...

    I think "The War of Jokes and Riddles" is one of the most innovative things to come out of DC in the past decade, owing in no small part to its being folded into the Catwoman story in the present...

    I think the intro sequence at the club says it takes place in 1935, putting it a year before Raiders.

    I am curious, why is Cisco unaware of the multiverse still existing in some form? And is this a potential plot point down the line?
