"On the bright side if Clint hadn't been thrown out by Gyrich he never would have gotten the job of head of security at Cross (I think that was the name) and he sort of grew with that responsibility."

"A few late thoughts on ASM 134 & 135: - The Tarantula is not very interesting.  Aside from the spiky boots, he has no powers, so he should not give Spidey much trouble.  Certainly not as much as he gave Spidey in this story.  -…"

Thank you for the kind words, Richard. They really made my day! I am very grateful for the amount of interests in my threads, though the success of the JLA/JSA ones are surely due to the affections we have to the subject not my meager commentary.

If you are interested, I have several sub headings: "I Was Wondering", "Silver Sightings" and "Fan of Bronze".

Great to have you here and thanks again!
