    I think they should join ... and be shoved in the fridge *laughs evilly*

    Putting aside my obvious hatred of them and wish for their demise, I just don't think either of them can command a presence...

    Of course they're using the New 52 version of Alan Scott. Is it that hard to get Jade and Obsidian in on this so we can have some Scott family drama? Is it?

    If you're iconic, then there is no way you'll die and be dead for eternity.

    Now, if you're too overpowered (Marquis of Death) or a no name hero/civilian, death is very permanent.

    There's also the perfectly rational fears people have about mutants. It's not like being a real minority where there is no actual danger being around a black person or a gay person. They're not the...

    Slott also hasn't proven to me why Yancy Street is somehow better than the Baxter Building. The Fantastic Four feel just as boxed in and isolated as they would be in the Baxter Building. Not to...

    Don't worry. I have. I just keep up with plot synopses.



    The "we are a family" thing doesn't work because it plays off about as well as a Disney Channel sitcom. We've seen it all before for...

    The next creative team needs to strangle Franklin with a bowstring for starters. Then rewrite the dynamics of everyone because Dan can't write the FF at all.

    I love how status quo change is toted around. I'm 100% sure that Slott is going to make this boring to read.

    I personally don't give a crap about who they cast as the FF. You could pull a Big Hero 6 for all I care. I just want to enjoy the character without having things that cannot easily be read as...

    The Fant4stic is a case study in how changing someone's race was somehow more racist. Who thought making the black sibling a senseless delinquent while the white sibling was the smart and sensible...

    He's a space pilot, mind you. It means that he would have a grasp of physics. It's one of the things the Tim Story films did right. It's the Thing who points out that the Silver Surfer on Earth...

    It's called a crippling overspecialization. Reed being smart and good at everything science in essence made him his son. Reed can probably bend reality to his will if you gave him a whiteboard. Hell,...

    And of course, you know, all the crap he pulled in Civil War and got off light compared to the others. At worst, he got beaten by the Hulk during World War Hulk. Meanwhile, Tony ended up getting...

    Ladies and germs, I present to you the Pope Nightcrawler plot from Chuck Austen's X-Men run.

    It goes a little something like this.

    Nightcrawler is studying to be a priest, but no one seems to...

    We do need more Chinese Mythology in the West. The Japanese seem to have a monopoly on East Asian mythology ever since they exported their culture through their media.

    It's worth noting that the...

    It has seems we have reached an impasse.

    I would argue it is a little bit of both. The villains have definitely stagnated. Red Ghost and his Super Apes are so pathetic that a 4 year old Franklin whose powers were limited to astral...
