" Based on the Captain's description, seems Everett's Golden Age Sub-Mariner stories had a lot of elements that Lee/Kirby/Ditko expanded on in Marvel's Silver Age, although Subby was much more savage in the Golden Age than any…"
"Len Wein co-created at least a couple of genuine superstars in Swamp Thing & Wolverine, but Will O' the Wisp fell far short of that and verified you can't make a character a "superstar" just by proclamation. I usually…"
"I really hated that Tigra was depicted as an airhead so often despite her pre-transformation self having been depicted as exceptionally intelligent and brave as the Cat. A shame that a potentially very interesting character was so screwed up."
"That struck me too upon reading it when it came out. Looking back, seems to me that Shooter was so focused on telling a story of a long-time good guy going bad that he didn't really make much of an effort to make long time readers believe…"
"I think appearances by Captain America in the Iron Man feature in ToS and by Hulk in Giant-Man in TtA were rather natural as Cap & Shellhead were teammates and Giant-Man and the Hulk were ex-teammates, all over in the Avengers, and although each…"
"FF #1 definitely had two distinct stories -- the origin, then the clash with the Mole Man. Issue 2, while still divided into distinct chapters, was really one story in several parts as were most issues over the next year or so, with #11 being…"
"Admittedly, I'm not that familiar with Batman stories in either Detective Comics or his own title of the Silver Age, but it did surprise to read that even this late, there were still multiple stories in one issue of his own title, prompting me…"
"As a kid, it was the crazy super-villains that most appealed to me in the Batman tv series. I hadn't read too many Batman comics, but for the most part the DC comics I read in the late '60s and early '70s failed to hook my…"
"Loved Get Smart and Buck's appearances on SNL too, as well as The Graduate. Of course, while I'd seen his name on the credits to Get Smart and I recalled his brief appearance in The Graduate, I didn't really become aware of who…"
"Nearly 20 years earlier, DC had "killed" off the Doom Patrol, although they all eventually got better. Still, these issues were a rather dramatic send off for the newbies to the JLA, that would have been akin to Stan killing off…"
"Rather amazing how Frank Miller really transformed the Kingpin from a rather 2nd tier Spider-Man baddie (at least compared to Dr. Octopus and the Green Goblin) to the top tier Daredevil baddie. Miller took all the elements that were…"
"Of course, in this instance, Shooter reset the roster back to the 1964-'65 team, but with Tigra rather than Rick Jones as the extra hand to Thor, Iron Man, Cap, Jan & Hank and this is the first time those 5 particular members became the…"
"I'll admit I'm a bit leery of reading any more comics updates of Watchmen and really don't like the idea of mingling the Watchmen universe with the mainstream DC Universe. But I pretty much quit reading new mainstream comics…"
"Much enjoyed the entire series, even the ending which echoes the ending of the original comics, except that rather than a hand tentatively reaching for a document that might change everything, this time it's a foot tentatively touching water…"
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( email@example.com) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
