For everyone who developed a grudge against Tony Stark in "Civil War," it looks like they're getting their wish to see him humbled. Not only has he lost everything -- his company, leadership of SHIELD, the Avengers -- he's erasing his own mind so that Norman Osborn can't extract the secret IDs of every superhero on earth. In the last few issues, during the "World's Most Wanted" storyline, he's been getting dumber and dumber, as he runs from safehouse to safehouse just ahead of Osborn, going backwards in time with each suit of old armor he dons.

And apparently it's just going to get worse. Here's a piece of art I just couldn't keep to myself, from a story called "Stark: Disassembled," beginning in Invincible Iron Man #20 in November. If it looks familiar, there was once a similar scene of Tony Stark sitting vigil over Stever Rogers's body.

I could've introduced you to people who would've admitted voting for him, but they're all gone now.

Two of my Sunday school teachers would probably admit it.

My parents voted for him. So did my older sisters and their husbands.

I prefer to think of it the other way around. If Bush administration had been filled with such villains, we wouldn't have felt such a dire need for a hero.

So, if George W. Bush fought Richard M. Nixon, who do yuo think would win?
Comment by Captain Comics on August 26, 2009 at 6:23pm
Dick Cheney.

Well, Nixon's dead, so that should make it about an even fight.

Check out the Secret Headquarters (my store) website! It's a pretty lame website, but I did it myself, so tough noogies

Listen to WOXY.com, it's the future of rock-n-roll!

Unless Dick's got a Black Lantern Ring.

"You won't have Richard Nixon to kick around anymore ..... but no one said anything about Black Lantern Nixon!"

"As I've said elsewhere, this is the story -- and probably the very panel -- where I turned the corner on liking Wolverine. Who knows? If Nixon had had retractable claws, and campaigned from a sewer, maybe I'd have liked him better!"

You mean he didn't campaign from a sewer? I'm so confused.
