  1. Black Monday Murders is pretty interesting and...

    Black Monday Murders is pretty interesting and dense, as a read. It's pretty interesting in that it centers heavily on a female character and if there's one criticism one can make of Hickman's...
  2. The important thing to understand is that the...

    The important thing to understand is that the MCU, in general, doesn't do romance and love stories. It doesn't target that audience.

    Tony and Pepper are a love story as is Cap and Peggy but the...
  3. Well she was there in ITSV. And while it's a...

    Well she was there in ITSV. And while it's a small role she got the biggest speech in the movie.

    My husband Peter Parker was an ordinary person. He always said that it could be anyone behind the...
  4. The answer is that it would not have happened....

    The answer is that it would not have happened. There was no plan from marketing or editorial pique to do it beforehand. Even Stan Lee didn't go in expecting it. It came from the fans. Without that,...
  5. It does. ...

    It does.

    I got it from here, last updated mid-to-late 2019...
  6. If this person, and the audience at that...

    If this person, and the audience at that convention had not made their voices heard, would the marriage have happened in that time and place? The answer is no. That was my point. End of discussion. ...

    I'd also add Bendis' The Pulse (which sent him to jail), and DeConnick's OSBORN series (which has him get out of jail albeit not the same one).



    It's weird how Norman doesn't feel overexposed...

  10. The price of writing those stories, and the price...

    The price of writing those stories, and the price of justifying those stories, is the permanent loss of respect for your judgment and taste. And you never get it back.



    Jim Shooter himself...
  11. Yes you can. HoX/Pox wasn't preceded by "no more...

    Yes you can. HoX/Pox wasn't preceded by "no more avengers, no more FF" nor did it have tie-ins with every other hero. HoX/PoX and the DoX stories started out as a self-contained story and owed its...
  12. The thing is also to look at the profile. Joe...

    The thing is also to look at the profile. Joe Quesada is an artist of mediocre portfolio (decent with city backgrounds, terrible with faces) and an appallingly bad writer. He's not someone with a...
  13. Stern says specifically at the start that "I am...

    Stern says specifically at the start that "I am sure" about the movie inspiring the miniseries and the editors commission, but obviously the aim was still to do a good story and make it work. And he...
  14. The incentive to do SW in animation was that it...

    The incentive to do SW in animation was that it was a story too comic-book-y to work in live-action. That's not the case anymore with the MCU where any story can be done.

    So eventually there will...
  15. The point as in most of the stuff in Quesada's...

    The point as in most of the stuff in Quesada's time at EIC was put the end-goal over any other consideration. Make the Avengers great again but do that without any organic demand from readers and...

    Not at all. Take a look at Tony's final lines with Peter.



    Tony doesn't say "You were right about Toomes, I should have kept a closer eye. Robbed my own ship under my nose and would have...
  17. The fact that we got good stories that came later...

    The fact that we got good stories that came later does not in anyway validate the original circumstances it happened under. Like for instance, JMS' run wrote Aunt May well but that doesn't justify...

    Among the first 616 comics I read was Roger Stern and Jenkins' Revenge of the Green Goblin, so I never got to experience the middle period where Norman was dead and gone forever that some among here...

    Jim Shooter said that the main reason he, as EIC, wrote Secret Wars was that he was sure that if he gave the assignment to any writer on staff it would put some characters down in favor of others. He...

    Marvel's masterplan was to tell successful stories that emphasized and centered on the Avengers and Iron Man. Stories don't have to be good to be successful you know.



    In the same way Roger...

    The issue is that Marvel, and for that matter any media company today, will never be honest and transparent with readers, who they mostly see as suckers of some kind or another. In Pro Wrestling,...

    And Bojack's last season coming this Jan.

    I mean all Netflix has to do is come up with 12 event stuff for a year, one per month, some can be movies, some can be TV shows, in different genres --...

    Mr. Mxyzsptlk would not like anyone being more convoluted than him.
  24. Didn't know about this but Marvel restricting...

    Didn't know about this but Marvel restricting X-Men to such a niche offering still confirms my point that they were shuffled out of the spotlight.

    The X-Men not having a major cartoon series in...

    Don't see what Spider-Gwen has to do with it.

    Spider-Gwen doesn't raise or diminish the value of Original Gwen. In fact quite the opposite. It proves and vindicates that the only version of Gwen...
