    When most of us said that in the HoX #2 thread we weren’t joking so we may have assumed you were being serious.

    Your argument somewhat relies upon a simplification of what life 6 actually represents.

    It isn’t just a ‘humans are the enemy story’ it posits that the route that a few humans take ends up...

    I laughed aloud at that last bit, so you paradoxically didn’t fail at that moment.

    In general though, this is a bit of a red rag for me because the more I have learned about literary criticism...

    I did make a point early on that many seemed to be projecting their own wishes onto the then unpublished story and assuming a high profile writer would do all the things they have wanted for so long....

    You can say it over and over but it doesn’t make it any more logical than when you first said it. This is the story. The story can’t be compared to a nonexistent one that resides unwritten in your...

    If anything it is more problematic to categorise readers than it is to categorise readings of the story. Half of the arguments here seem to make an assumption about people arguing against them and...

    There are contradictions in the canon but usually the designations are Homo sapiens sapiens and Homo sapiens superior. So same species different subspecies. We don’t really need to delve much deeper...

    That’s your interpretation and it contradicts the book so not many will share it. Hickman is clearly indicating this isn’t the case and that Moira spent a long while trying to convince him to change...

    That is a strange definition of majority. I am pretty sure I am not unrepresentative of comic readers of my age and I have never consumed any of those supposed cultural touchstones. Not even a single...

    Maybe just tell us what you think has changed so radically because we are genuinely at a loss to understand why anyone would say this.

    No it absolutely does not. All of his actions remain the same. What book are you reading? It isn’t this one, which goes out of its way to explain how Charles went through a long period of convincing...

    It isn’t messing with the entire history of the franchise. Again what makes you think so much has changed. From what I can see a few key characters have a subtly shifted motivation.

    Absolutely, this gets repeated everywhere. I wasn’t blaming you personally for repeating it. It isn’t “true” though. It would only prove true if Sony sold up their studios and didn’t bother about the...

    I donít think anyone has discussed that. It would certainly fit with his inspiration ĎThe First Fifteen Lives of Harry Augustí. It would be an interesting twist.
