    That Mary Storm character was especially weird in UFF. The comics implied that she was hitting on Reed or Reed had a crush on her for some reason. And then she was evil. It was one of the many dead...

    Actually it is. I have come across a lot of people who don't know that Vulture's harness actually gives him super-strength, so they assume that it's just an old man in a suit, when talking about him...

    The Disney buyout happened in 2009 not in 2007. The Disney buyout happened in the wake of Iron Man's box-office success and the implication of a movie franchise leading to the MCU. That's what put...

    That's because it's been a very dense few months. 12 issues of HoX/PoX were published once-a-week over two months. Then after that it's been raining X-books with some 6 X-books a month. So it's been...

    Yeah you would think if they had that much time they would take effort to make a good job out of it. In actual practice one of the reasons for why OMD was such a s--tshow was that there were many...

    It's still early days in the run, (not a year has passed and owing to the Pandemic and delays in comics time it's not a full year yet) so you aren't late to the party by any means. Reading HoX/PoX in...

    JMS confirmed in interviews that the main concept of OMD -- "Have Aunt May shot and Spider-Man trades his marriage to Mephisto" was Quesada's idea and mandate and not something that he came up with....

    Good points.

    Ultimate Marvel began with Ultimate Spider-Man, in 2000, which was the brainchild of Bill Jemas. All the other titles came out of that. And it's important to note that Ultimate...

    In 10 years, things taken for granted right now, will be re-evaluated, scrutinized and criticized. Stuff fashionable now will be unfashionable then. That's how it works, yeah.

    My argument is that the 2000s should be examined and scrutinized the same way we examine and scrutinize the "1940s". (Which incidentally is the point of Watchmen which literally compares heroes from...

    You obviously have an issue with "political correctness" and that explains the nostalgia for an era which trafficked in taboo-crossing crude taste storytelling.

    That's a good example of how Ultimate Marvel never lived up to its promise and how quickly it became redundant. It was supposed to be the edgy 21-st Century "not your dad's Marvel" take but at the...

    Ultimate Doom was terrible. But then I don't know if there's a single Ultimate version of any villain (USM, UXM, Ult, UFF) worth salvaging. Well Ultimate Loki had his moments I suppose. The most...

    This kind of "whataboutism" is bad form. Defend Ultimate Marvel based on its own merits rather than going "other works do it" too. That's only valid if other posters bring up these other works as a...
