Fraser Sherman replied to Commander Benson's discussion Deck Log Entry # 199 So, You Want to Join the X-Men . . . .
"X-Men 12 shows Charles had lost the hair while he was still in college. It also shows him several years older than if he'd been conceived while his parents worked on the Manhattan Project. But then it's hardly the first time Stan and Jack…"

"Actually there are valid theories that we got along fine with the neanderthals—and may have some of their genes in us. I think Xavier's goal was partly to show that mutants, or at least good mutants, were a model minority, willing to…"

"I've never heard Giant-Size X-Men as the starting point for the Bronze Age--it seems way too late. You have a good point about the lack of any other staff. Perhaps Xavier's telepathy let him pluck what he needed from other people, like a…"

"The original origin for Charles--parents were working on the Manhattan Project--meant he wouldn't have been much older than Jean. Still not proper behavior given his authority over her, of course."

"Cool."

Fraser Sherman replied to Steve W's discussion Books about Comic Books
"The Last Innocent Year, which covers 1964, is also very good. It looks at how trends on both the right and left began to splinter the established consensus American had been running under. I look forward to seeing what you think of Ten Cent Plague."

Fraser Sherman replied to Commander Benson's discussion Deck Log Entry #198 Kryptonite---a Glowing Reference (Part Three)
"I hadn't known about the Dimension Z story. Good point."

Fraser Sherman replied to Commander Benson's discussion Deck Log Entry #198 Kryptonite---a Glowing Reference (Part Three)
"Having just reread the red-green kryptonite story, I'm honestly not sure the green k contributed anything. Growing a third eye seems like a fairly normal red k effect, hardly the nightmarish transformation announced on the cover."

Fraser Sherman replied to Steve W's discussion Books about Comic Books
"I don't think it's been mentioned in the list yet--The Ten Cent Plague is a great book about 1940s/1950s anti-comics crusaders and paranoia (depressing at times, but certainly informative)."

"Yeah, I've noticed that myself. But lord, those are some awesome covers."

"Reading the Showcase Superman collections I noticed one of the Silver Age tricks for giving Superman a challenge was when he had to pretend he wasn't there — "If SPECTRE discovers I'm helping James Bond they'll shut up shop…"

"It is an effective scene."

"And equally weird, the great genius doesn't even realize what night it is until after the shooting, when it sinks in why Superboy was really there."

Fraser Sherman replied to Commander Benson's discussion Deck Log Entry #198 Kryptonite---a Glowing Reference (Part Three)
"Very interesting, with a lot of stuff (and varieties of kryptonite) I didn't know. I had no idea gold k didn't have an origin. For bizarre red k effects, the story where Krypto not only turns into a female dog but has puppies takes the…"

"Nice job, Commander (came here via your link from the kryptonite story)"
