"In Legends #6, J'Onn declares that the JLA does not exist and there is no follow-up beyond Blue Beetle deciding, several pages later, that their new team "can only be called" the Justice League (no "of America" nor…"
"I liked J'Onn's panel declaring the end of the JLA in Legends #6, but otherwise I felt disappointed by the unceremonious disposal of the team. It deserved better.
It probably does not help that I was no fan of the Giffen / DeMatteis…"
"Candy made many appearances since. She was along with Warren during the New Defenders run, and was even voted team leader at one point.
She survived the tragic end of that team, and made brief cameos in early X-Factor.
Her last few appearances were…"
"As I said elsewhere, this issue impressed me a lot.
Perhaps not so much due to the death of Steel in and of itself as because of the general feeling of helplessness.
J'onn, particularly, felt rather vulnerable and relatable. To some…"
"Crisis, as published at the time, did not show us an older Gypsy.
The continuity implant history that we discussed a few pages prior did, however, and it was a nice history to read. It was JLA: Incarnations #5, IIRC.
Despite having a few…"
"Wow. This team makes X-Force look like a group in the straight and narrow.
I think that the character at the front is Empath. I should have guessed that it was someone with the original Hellions' uniform; those gloves were very…"
"Captain, most of those Hellfire Club goons became Reavers in the 1990s.
The original Marauders were mostly News characters, most of them presumed to be mutants. But also Sabretooth, and Vertigo of the Savage Land Mutates that Magneto transformed…"
"HoX/PoX says in one of its text pages that Xavier has twice already written over his own memories with the contente of a previous backup.
That felt to me like a general attempt at explaining unavoidable continuity challenges such as those…"
"Showing up when he is needed is one of the main traits of the Phantom Stranger's style. Giving him a signaling device would run counter to the character concept. Somehow I can almost see the panel of some random JLAer giving the…"
"I first met both Amazo and Ivo in the same storyline that brought us the Supermobile, back in the late 1970s.
Having Superman fight alone against Amazo is always an exciting prospect. And that storyline brought us just as exciting, unusual…"
"About Conway's reaction to this, I think that it can be reasonably gauged by his commentary to the collected edition of this run, which was so corteously reproduced by Jeff in page three of this discussion (right before the issue #235 post,…"
"Scalphunter was one of the most noteworthy members of the original team of Marauders. He was seem mostly in the Mutant Massacre, fighting the X-Men in the Morlock tunnels alongside, among others, Sabretooth. At the time he was working…"
"This was poignant. After disabling the Ivo android, Vibe improves his mood and restores his faith in the JLA for just a few seconds. Then he loses his life without as much as a witness.
I don't think that we ever had a comparable…"
"I just now realized that this is what I find least convincing in this high concept.
There are at least a few thousand mutants living in Krakoa. Xavier and Magneto have convinced, what, 95% of the known mutants to leave their lives behind and…"
"Very few of the X-Men are characters to me at this point. Most of them have accumulated so many contradictory, neglected traits along time that I find myself looking for clues on which role they will be playing from the blurbs and such.
Glad you are still here.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.
