"I have to add another word to the list of comic book terms I've been mispronouncing since the '60s.
According to the trailers, it's HELL-uh. Not HE-luh, as I've been saying it.
(*&%$$!! At least I pronounce THAT…"
"And even if that approach only lasted for the remainder of the Silver Age, or to be more specific until about issue #93 of the Avengers, IMO it was a great idea, a way to further differentiate Marvel from DC. Admittedly, by the time I started…"
"Unlike Iron Man, with Thor you have a Superman problem. How many threats can really challenge him? So conflicts with Odin seemed to crop up regularly.
I think the problem with Avengers membership for the heroes having their own separate titles was…"
"That used in Avengers #16 to transport the baddies to a dimension where their powers worked against them seems to have been one of Lee & Kirby's "let's wrap up this fight with the bad guys as quickly as possible so we can move on…"
I may be out of line here but in regards with your exchange with Mark, we both know how he feels about Marvel now. We've both know that his opinion has not and probably will not change though I hope it does. Despite previous advice, I have no doubt that he will continue to comment on how "evil" the Marvel heroes are whenever he can.
However, he has had some medical problems and he has left here before thinking no one wants him here. That's something that I am hoping to avoid. I'm not blaming you for ANYTHING, let me make that clear. I am only trying to prevent another round of the same debate that apparently caused hard feelings before.
You won't change his mind and challenging him about it will only make him defensive, as past interactions show us. If steered clear from the topic of Marvel's Post-Civil War period, he seems happier.
Anyway, that's my two cents. Again I'm not faulting you at all. Merely trying to keep the peace, as they say.
