    Fair points, though while wholesale systemic genocide did fall out of favor after the atrocities of the Holocaust became public knowledge, a lot of people coming up today don't really seem to...

    Thanks. The book would have two mission statements. The first, and the one that would apply most in-universe, would be to fight the fights that most of the big-time superhero teams aren't fighting,...

    Yeah, it is, but if it works . . .



    This one I loved in particular because Bullseye was just that despicable a character.



    Agreed, at least in the sense that the extinction stories were a...

    To be fair, Norman Osborn's Thunderbolts were exactly that --- criminals pretending to be heroes --- unlike previous (and original) iterations that genuinely did want to better themselves after...

    The thing is, as originally conceived, Peter Parker/Spider-Man took a lot of inspiration from both Batman and Superman, albeit via deconstructing or subverting their familiar tropes. For example,...
  7. Superhuman strength, speed, stamina, and...

    Superhuman strength, speed, stamina, and durability, at least. Enough to put a serious hurting on Bullseye (who had it coming for all the heinous crap he'd done up to that point and would do in the...

    That does make sense, though I do agree with you that it was a nice change of pace for a teen hero to have supportive parents that knew about the double identity. Kind of like the Jaime Reyes Blue...

    Good point about American Eagle, whom I recall from a particularly awesome appearance in the post-Civil War Thunderbolts where he beat the s*** out of Bullseye and put him in traction. Very cathartic...
  10. Thanks for sharing this. As much as I'd...

    Thanks for sharing this. As much as I'd personally like to forget Civil War and the damage it caused, sadly, One More Day still permeates everything in the Spider-Mythos and since that was...

    Maybe to keep them out of the hands of someone worse.
  12. Funny enough, Stephanie Brown was supposed to be...

    Funny enough, Stephanie Brown was supposed to be Nightwing in the Season 11 Smallville comics that picked up where the TV series left off after its ten seasons, but Dan DiDio vetoed that and made the...

    Maybe one of those spider-tracers that also act as audio recording devices . . .

    Hmm, I think they've been doing all right to a point. T'Challa leading the Avengers as their chairperson in this current volume was a good sign of that, in my view.
  15. Thanks, and I think they've been doing better...

    Thanks, and I think they've been doing better recently, or at least they're starting to make progress in that direction.

    According to a deleted scene or something like that, Tony used Extremis to keep himself alive long enough to get the shrapnel out of his chest that the arc reactor was preventing from reaching his...

    And not only that, the issue of intersectionality you brought up before, I mean, if we/Marvel were being more comprehensive about it, there are a number of mutants who are so alienated from humanity,...

    A very good point, actually. It doesn't work that way in real life because even if some (or many) experiences can parallel one another, ultimately everyone has their own lives, their own...
  19. Thanks, and I can see that working. I...

    Thanks, and I can see that working.



    I would say beyond allegories for the historical and continued civil rights movements in real life, the way mutants are treated in the Marvel Universe,...

    Fair point there.



    Pretty much, yeah. I mean, one parent can't be hiding things about their child from the other parent. It doesn't work in the long run, at least not if both parents are...

    I think it scares some people because it's such a radical upending of the status quo of the X-Men forever slaving away for the approval and acceptance of a society that, after all those years of...

    Generally agreed, though I did like that Earth-65 Mary Jane wasn't written off as a lost cause. Still, if she does retain a bit of Knull's symbiote and the Earth-65 Venom symbiote . . . well, that's...

    Same here. At the very least, he could try channeling his bioelectricity to stimulate his nervous system in a way that would (further) boost his speed and reflexes.

    Understandable. I'd presume the rest of the suit is still generated from the ring, or at least that's my hope.
  25. Agreed. I can understand the point being made...

    Agreed. I can understand the point being made with HYDRA-Cap about how fascism can creep up on a society that's not on guard for it and subvert respected and revered iconography in that society to...
