Re: Spotlight update on.. M II

Yeah, Lobdell and Bachalo are on record saying they originally intended for there to be no "real" Monet, just the twins posing as her. Consequently, Penance was NOT the original Monet -- she would have been an entirely different girl.

Re: Savage Avengers

Avengers Arena, New Avengers (3rd series), etc, have shown us "Avengers" titles don't necessarily include Avengers. And the article specifically calls them an "unsanctioned team". Still, there's a full run of Marvel's Conan on eBay right now for $9,600. If anyone wants to buy it for me, I'll send yo...

Inhumans are just plastic surgery addicts: Change my mind

Have you ever met somebody so stupid that they think their kids will be born blond because they bleach their hair? With their recent period of hyper-prominence in Marvel Comics coming to an end, I wanted to take this time to bring up the thing that has always annoyed me the most about the Inhumans. ...

Wouldn't have posted in an open forum if I didn't expect feedback.

Ultimately, I think I agree with BC, Nu-D -- the Externals wasn't a bad idea; it was a neutral idea, done poorly. I was thinking today about something very similar when they connected Collector and Grandmaster as part of a larger group of immortals known as the Elders of Universe. Before, they were ...

Yes, that's been the subject of no small amount of debate among the contributors. Ultimately, however, you should be seeing Lucifer on both sites and Chthon on mightyavengers.net only. We're still trying to define exactly what MightyA will be for us. While the X-Men are a largely self-contained univ...

Re: Monolith's Power Descriptions

@LimboMaster: I don't see any discrepancy. Illyana having a mutant teleporting power does nothing to preclude her from also knowing a teleporting spell she could teach to Pixie. It's redundant knowledge, perhaps, but hardly contradictory of anything. @DrHouse: The source of Lucifer's powers is unkno...

Try to be more specific, Doc. I'll guess what instances you're talking about, though.

More advanced mind control was revealed to...

Re: Spotlight on Vindicator II

Depends on how many errors you're willing to forgive. Vindicator is Heather MacNeil Hudson. Sasquatch's real name was given as Heather McDaniel Hudson. An text error, or deliberately making her a separate Heather? A flashback to Sasquatch's Alpha Flight showed a redheaded woman who looked like Vindi...

Yep, I do think that's actually Neal Shaara on the final page. The return of Thunderbird III. Truly these are the end times. Beak was re-powered in a single panel by Mothervine during the X-Men: Blue arc. On the 2-page splash, though, who is that with Reyes in the top right? Is that what Rictor look...

Re: The Judas Contract

It was a weird time period for comics, looking back. Just a few months later in the new New Teen Titans #1, Perez caused a controversy by drawing Dick and Kory emerging from the same bedroom at night to answer an alarm. They were living in sin! In a DC comic!

Re: The Judas Contract

Wolfman/Perez's Titans run was situationally and deliberately a mirror of Claremont/Byrne's Uncanny run. So, imagine reading Uncanny X-Men #134-137 without being exposed to any of the characters beforehand. One thing Ring missed in his recitation was that Terra was ALWAYS sociopathic in the comic. T...

Since losing her Binary powers, Carol is Class 50 at a baseline level, making her weaker than Thing, Hulk, Thor, or Sentry. However, her ability to absorb energy increases her strength level, allowing her to exceed Class 100 levels at maximum. Therefore, when fully charged Captain Marvel can be as s...

Re: Monolith's Power Descriptions

Mimic(s) are on page 15 of the Archives.

Changeling was a standard metamorphic shapeshifter, able to alter his physical appearance and pose as existing people. The limited number of appearances he had make it impossible to explore the details of his power beyond that.
