    The original Spider-Man 2099 and Doom 2099 were definitely the best of the original bunch. They were both must haves for me back when they were ongoing. Miguel is probably my favorite Spider-Man...

    You are correct about Roulette, and Empath was definitely just rotten early on. He received some much needed character development that revealed him to essentially be a wounded, extremely lonely...

    That is my preferred version too. Somewhat grim, somewhat brooding, but far better adjusted than the post Flashpoint take.

    Poor Donna Troy has been damaged by every retcon and reboot since the original Crisis. Her pre-wedding Who is Donna Troy origin was pretty much perfect and beautiful. The really need a reset to that...

    I've not read through the whole thread, so maybe others have said the same thing I'm going to say.

    The TV shows are pretty consistent about leaning into what makes him Superman: hope, idealism,...

    In my opinion this cynical age in which we live calls for more of the idealistic heroes who do what is right no matter what, and never make moral compromises. Similarly, we need a bit less of the...

    What happened was that there were impending creative change behind the signs, as well as a big direction change for the franchise. Subsequent writers had stories they wanted to tell, and they...

    Later that very same issue, just before she renders him catatonic, the following exchange happens between Dark Phoenix and Mastermind:

    Mastermind: "M-mindtap mechanism--White Queen's design...

    Agreed. The Giant Sized X-Men #1 team we all know and love is a prime example of diversity and good writing going hand in hand. I'm hoping to see Thunderbird I back soon. There is absolutely no...

    I've found that it takes no real effort to connect with characters that don't share my race, gender, or sexuality. Characters like Storm, Shadowcat, Mr. Terrific, Tim Drake, Cyborg, Nightcrawler, and...

    I'd pretty much go Pre-Crisis in format, infinite. Earth-1 for the big 7, Earth-2 would get an All-Star Squadron book around WW2 and a JSA Infinity book in their present day. I'd bring back the...

    Exactly! There really is no excuse for great characters like Vixen, Black Lightning, the female Dr. Light, etc who have been members to not get included.

    I agree. Diversity alone won’t generate good sales and good word of mouth if the stories aren’t at least good. For a property like the JLA, the stories should be great.

    I do agree that some...
  14. Poll: We all have certain goals, aspirations, and...

    We all have certain goals, aspirations, and dreams that are ultimately never going to be fully realized. If those goals, aspirations, and dreams are good and honorable, the act of pursuing them in a...

    I vote no. I’m all for fully iced body with a trenchcoat. I thought that was a neat look for Iceman.

    Not that I agree with eating the rude or the rich, I'd rather be rid of the rude.

    Yes for some, no for others. For instance, it seems pretty unnecessary for Iron Man. With or without it, he is a target in and out of the armor. On the other hand, Captain America really should have...

    All the character needs is consistently good characterization & writing, as well as an appropriate and consistent place in-universe. The retcon that the West family always had Wally and Wallace...

    First, I think having Wanda join the X-Men for a time as a full member and a liaison to the Avengers would be a very good idea. Second, Wanda was and had been clearly insane for quite a while when M...

    I agree wholeheartedly. They have either different abilities or different personalities than any of the Big 7, and they are presently the highest profile. Generally, everyone listed on the poll are...

    While being an oppressed/downtrodden minority is a very important part of the X-Men family of books, it has seemed for quite a while that 99% of X-Men stories are primarily about it. I don't think it...

    X-Corp

    The official diplomatic arm of the Krakoan government. Diplomat, attaches, and a security team. Diplomatic immunity. We'd get missions around the world (occasionally offworld too), and the...

    The fact that this question was posed leads me to believe that the OP doesn't understand Sue Richards or Steve Rogers. Sue would never cheat, emotionally or physically. She might be tempted on...
