"I think what it comes down to is marketing.  It's easier and safer to introduce a new character with an old name instead of introducing a completely new character and a new name.  Saves a lot of strain on the creativity part of…"

Richard Mantle replied to Captain Comics's discussion 'Legion' is fascinating, even if you can't trust your own lying eyes
"I'm impressed so far......but... I worry if there is an audience/market and if they know to watch. Are the apparent lack of 'villains' and the constant 'is it real or not' question enough to carry the narrative and the…"

Philip Portelli replied to Captain Comics's discussion Marvel teaser: "Generations"
"Yes but Thunderstrike was Thor for a time. War Machine was Iron Man for a time. USAgent was Captain America for a time. It was only when Marvel brought back the originals were their codenames changed! Also there was Spider-Man/Venom, Fantastic…"

Richard Mantle replied to Captain Comics's discussion Marvel teaser: "Generations"
"I am reminded these days very much of the period when Marvel had replaced most of it's main A-list heroes before-- We had Thunderstrike in place of Original Thor, War Machine in place of Original Iron man and even newCatain America/USAgent/The…"

Philip Portelli replied to Captain Comics's discussion Marvel teaser: "Generations"
"What's obvious to me by looking at the promo piece is that, while Marvel is pushing to diversify its heroes, the original "white guys" are still around for the most part, just for occasions like this!"

Dave Elyea replied to Captain Comics's discussion 'Teen Titans: The Judas Contract' arrives April 18
"That story was when they fought the Demons Three (for the first time, I think), once they noticed that for whatever reasons, the Demons needed to specifically name whoever they were aiming their spells at, so if the Demons thought they were…"

"Looking back, it is amazing that none of the JLA's foes (or Gardner Fox) ever got around to inventing the rare Flaming Yellow Kryptonite isotope--it would have saved a lot of time!"

"I remember the period to which you're referring, Jeff, and I felt the same way. We even had a legacy for Mr. America, as pointless a character as there ever was."

Wandering Sensei: Moderator Man replied to Captain Comics's discussion Marvel teaser: "Generations"

Ronald Morgan replied to Captain Comics's discussion Marvel teaser: "Generations"

Cap, a slight correction to your "Reprint Wishes" in CBG #1680. It was the Armorines that wore "Iron Man-type armor." The bodies of the H.A.R.D. Corps members were implanted with technology that would allow them to utilize one Harbinger power (such as strength or invulnerability) at a time. H.A.R.D. Corps #4 was my first Valiant book.

Thank you Captain. I hope to be on your site for many years to come. I hope I can gleen as much information from your site about 1980s comics and politically incorrect ones. Thanks for having me.

Hey Captain, Someone named Ann who joined just two hours ago has tried to "friend" me, and wants to form a long term relationship with me! Lucky me! Can we investigate & ban this come-on? Thanks.
