"Gotta say, just from the cover image, looks like the then new Avengers are going to get creamed by the original team.  Hank might do ok against his alternate self and Hawkeye might hold his own against Iron Man, but the chances of Cap beating…"

"Yep.  When I lived in Crete, Greece, I had a couple of cats that died and in each case I had a very difficult time digging holes in the very rocky land big enough to bury them (and although I lived in a very rural area, near the coast, in an…"

"I really hate it when a character is behaving abysmally stupid in such a manner, particularly in confronting someone they know is a very nasty S.O.B. who would kill his own mother just for kicks.  It's like the character is going to the…"

"I much enjoyed MIchelinie's run on Iron Man, but for the most part his writing on the Avengers seemed seriously off to me.  Admittedly, I can't really remember my thoughts on this mag from when I read it about 39 years ago when I…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Captain Comics's discussion 'Dark Phoenix' didn't have emotional power of the comics -- nor could it
"Yep, even in 3 big budget movies, seems it would be difficult to adequately show how Scott and Jean matured as characters from adolescents learning how to control their powers and apparently fearful of intimacy to more self-assured young adults and…"

"Yeah, this story had me gripped all right.  High drama and goofy comedic moments and bad science and all.  In hindsight, Conway was putting in a lot of clues but as of reading this issue when it was brand new off the racks, I still had no…"

Good Day,

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:( mrs.sandraessien@yahoo.com) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.
