    Kinda felt like an intentional attack on Dazzler as a character. I'm just gonna pretend like this book never happened.

    Poll: Winter Soldier struck a perfect balance, Ragnarok...

    Winter Soldier struck a perfect balance, Ragnarok and GotG 2 went overboard
  3. You are referring to Fury's Secret War here...

    You are referring to Fury's Secret War here right? Its been a while since I read that but wasnt it conducted under the guise of the heroes working for SHIELD and they (the participating heroes)...
  4. I really don't see any version where the Pro...

    I really don't see any version where the Pro Regulation side could be viewed as morally/ethically just. The entire concept is blatantly authoritarian, uses the concept of pre-crime to round up...
  5. Poll: I cant say, I only recently started checking back...

    I cant say, I only recently started checking back into Marvels current offerings so by the time I found out about it Shang Chi had left the story and been replaced with Sabertooth
  6. Poll: Sure, maybe if we went back far enough but at...

    Sure, maybe if we went back far enough but at some point doing so basically just leaves the characters blank slates and it all becomes "What if" (and yes I would totally read that one). That said, as...
  7. Poll: Shang Chi wouldn't act as an Immortal Weapon for...

    Shang Chi wouldn't act as an Immortal Weapon for Kun Lun so that pretty much automatically rules him out. This is an instance of character traits overriding any relevant skill sets.
  8. I cant speak to the reception that this got at...

    I cant speak to the reception that this got at the time but an important factor is that Claremont was careful not to demonize or misrepresent religion as a whole or the religious themselves in the...
  9. Yes and no. The concept could certainly be...

    Yes and no. The concept could certainly be executed but could the material/politics be presented with the nuance and maturity that Claremont brought to it? Id have to say no, Marvel doesn't have...

    Yeah it'll definitely be a bit much at times and it tends to be during important scenes. That sorta stuff doesn't and didn't bother me but it def elicited a audible "holy shit" on a few occasions....

    I'll second that high praise for the show. We just finished it at a rate of about 4 episodes a day which more TV than I watch in an average week but it was hard to put down. I'd put it up there tied...

    Did you seriously just quote me with something I never said? If we are gonna discuss it lets use what I actually said.

    "The thing about the classics that everyone like to cite as political (Days...

    I imagine what he's referring to is telling stories with less topical politics. The thing about the classics that everyone like to cite as political (Days of Future Past, original Secret Empire, God...

    Secret Warriors doesn't really tie into the greater incursion event and could therefore be skipped. However it is an excellent series beginning to end so I would seriously recommend it on its own...
  15. Her personality really couldn't have been more...

    Her personality really couldn't have been more different from Brunnhilde's either, they're almost polar opposites. Valkyrie is often portrayed as an all-business, stone cold warrior that would make...

    She was also more or less the lead of Fearless Defenders but its better to just pretend that book never happened
  17. I'm absolutely a fan of Valkyrie. I'm aware that...

    I'm absolutely a fan of Valkyrie. I'm aware that I'm likely not in any sort of majority there but the fact of the matter is Brunhilde has the stuff to make for a much more successful character than...
  18. I agree. I have always thought Brunhilde and Dani...

    I agree. I have always thought Brunhilde and Dani were both criminally underutilized characters, they are both unique and exciting but it seems that outside of rare occasions every ten years or so...
  19. No, Brunhilde should absolutely stay as is. If...

    No, Brunhilde should absolutely stay as is. If they want to examine a Valkyrie visually similar to Tessa there is nothing in cannon that prevents them from doing so.

    That said, the comics should...

    I agree, both Lois Lane and Mary Jane are two names that transcend comic book culture and deserve their place in the realm of iconic characters PERIOD. You could probably say "Louis Lane" damn near...

    I think its a position that has kinda shifted thru different eras but would narrow it down to Storm, Mary Jane, Phoenix, and Sue Storm with Ororo probably being the hero that has the most eras of...

    THIS "I don’t know if we know how many artists, besides maybe McNiven and Coipel, absolutely move the needle on anything to be drawn." Is the statement I was referring to, and even the quickest...

    Exactly, that's a great example. I'd love to know how much the art has held that book back in terms of sales.
  24. Poll: Alonso made a statement around a year ago that...

    Alonso made a statement around a year ago that was something to the effect of "art doesn't sell a book, and we've found out that the artist doesn't really matter" (paraphrasing). I took that to mean...

    I went with Bad Stories. I feel like 90% of what I have read from them seems so uninspired both in story and art. Most of it comes off as trying to push an agenda whether its for the sake of movie...
