    It really was very good. I particularly liked how protective of Jan it showed Hank to be. It reenforces the idea that he really wasn't in his right mind when he hit her. Busiek really tried righting...

    I don't think that it's something that can be reduced to a single event. It was a sum of circunstances that spread out throughout a few decades. First. Batman was one of the few DC characters to...

    That's not fair. Wolfman was merely the gun DC executives pointed and shot. And, considering the daunting task he had before him, I do think he (and Perez and Ordway and Giordano) actually did quite...

    I just realized that when I sumrised Captain Comet's appearences prior to Flashpoint, I left out an important storyline. Cap was also front and center in the Infinite Crisis tie in series...

    LOL! No, sorry, but definitely not!



    Wanda/ Vision actually borrows much more from the Steve Englehart Vision / Scarlet Witch (which I personally hated) and John Byrne's Visionquest and Darker...

    You're not. Movie Hawkeye is a bore, a snorefest. And I don't blame much Renner. It was what was given to him. However, I do wish Jensen Ackles had accepted the part. He has a certain natural bad...

    Crazy, out of the box, ideas are only good when you have the talent to execute them well. Otherwise, they are just drivel.

    I always loved Roy Thomas run on WCA, especially after David Ross came on board as penciller. In fact, of the tree long runs in WCA (Englehart, Byrne and Thomas), Thomas was my favorite, of an...

    No. He was made an honorary member by Hawkman in the 70's, but he never got to formally join. In SSSV #5, he mentioned that, after being out of touch with Earth's society for about 20 years in space,...

    Might be a retcon, but I remember seeing Johnny saying that he took the name in homage to the android crimefighter. Anyway, put it as you will. Johnny Storm IS a legacy character. By the way, retcon...

    I wouldn't mind that, especially if it showcases many of the same members (Herc, Monica, Wanda, Vizh, Wonder Man, Voyager etc...) and has some of the same creators. No Surrender was, IMho, better...

    The first Waid and Garney run, sadly interrupted by Liefield's Heroes Reborn drivel, was, IMHO, top-notch. The best! The second time around, while still OK, for me, lost a bit of its magic. I agree...

    Same here. And Jarvis. I guess the Avengers once had an appeal that is no longer marketable in today's more "enlighted" days. It reeks of privilage (white or not). A lot of well to do guys and gals...
