    Wakanda being a hunter-gatherer nation that T'Challa dragged into technological sophistication (that change is a good thing, BTW).

    Black Panther limiting himself to heightened senses and acrobatics.

    Thor (or anybody else on the good guy side) single-handedly butt-whooping the whole Chinese Red Army out of India.

    Daredevil being light-hearted.

    Iron Man's abilities being mainly magnetic in nature.

    Vision's physiology being almost identically human, but made out of synthetic materials.

    A sensible, consistent hierarchy of who's the most powerful among the characters.

    ^^^I hope you’re wrong about Daredevil.

    I think there’s room for humor in his book and him as a character. I mean he’s a swashbuckler. Grin and gritty looks good on him yeah, but he should balance that out w. a dry wit.

    One scene that I think captures what I’m talking about is the last page of his crossover w. Batman from back in ‘97.

    Gotta agree with the majority, DD doesn't always have to be grim & gritty
    For what it's worth, Kesel nailed it during his run (until TPTB/editorial got cold feet & ended it):

    A 99 Cent line like the one that gave us Untold Tales of Spider-Man.

This kind of powerup will not be rewarded to B-list characters. The days of new/less popular heroes beating the likes of Kang and Dr. Doom will not happen today, which makes them kind of restrictive in a sense.
    Literally powered up, as she's now got the full suite of Spider-Man powers thanks to having a Venom symbiote.

    This hasn't changed. It was explicit in Viv's origin in fact - she's even more human than Vision himself, she was built as a teenager but ages like a human from that point, unlike Vision, who's functionally immortal but can still be killed. Both synthezoids also don't eat food. Vision's always been very human except for those two things, lack of aging and lack of need for nutrients.

    We might but it will probably a reprint or a 6-10 page story.

    Nothing to the level of Untold Spider-Man.

    But it is rarer, yeah. Honestly a result of so many things being 5-issue minis. Why would you reference something from Quasar: The Re-Quasaning (1 of 4)? What are the odds anyone read that?
    I am very interested in this Re-Quasaning. It's been so long since he was originally Quasaned, about time they got around to it.

    Most future stories actually have Vision not survive that long. He's not invincible. The Old Man Logan timeline (this was in one of the later books starring other characters) has Viv as one of the last surviving heroes - using the codename The Avenger. Dark Ages had both Vision and Viv destroyed at the outset due to the global EMP.
