Re: Podcast # 317 MB Q&A August 2014 What did you think?

I had a response prepared, but it's not worth it. Do me a favor and deactivate my account. He wasn't right back then, but the site has turned into everything Wacker and Slott always said it was. And George, I have shared your older comments with every sane person I know over the years. You are a rac...

Re: Godzilla 2014

I just need someone to explain to me how, in a universe where evolution is a thing, why creatures that have lain dormant for countless eons would have an electro-magnetic pulse as an attack. In whatever prehistoric hellscape they inhabited, I will wager there were no electronics to nullify. It obvio...

Re: Godzilla 2014

The marketing for the movie was brilliant. I was excited for this movie, I was pumped. That doesn't happen to often. Godzilla looked terrific, and to headline the human story, they cast Bryan Cranston... one of the best living actors of my generation. The studio swore up and down that the lessons of...

Re: What’s the appeal of gwen Stacy

If I had to guess, her appeal is the result of her first few appearances when Romita started doing the art, the tragedy that befell her character, and stories like Blue that look back on those early years fondly. On another note, it's really bothered me that ever since ASM came out, there have been...

Re: Marvel's Agents of SHIELD TV series

I can't believe they renewed this. The writing is still atrocious, the acting is horrible... and Mary Sue Poots is much worse than Carlie Cooper ever was.

Re: What’s the appeal of gwen Stacy

Mary Jane as the First & Only Love never works, and that's because she wasn't there from the beginning Psst ... technically, Mary Jane appeared earlier than Gwen Stacy. :wink: She was mentioned first, but you know what I'm talking about. ;) But, if the bigger topic is "Is Mary Jane the better chara...

Re: What’s the appeal of gwen Stacy

Gwen Stacy represents First Love. How many people actually end up with their First Love? Losing First Love is a part of growing up, and that's what Spider-Man is... a story about a teenager becoming an adult. Gwen is his First Love. Not the first girl he dates, but his First Love. He loses her in a ...

I did an evil thing there. I liked the story, but that song popped into my head upon my second read-through.

Re: Tom Brevoort answers to Spidey-related questions.

MJ doesn't even need to be a supermodel. She can be a struggling model and actress, who gets breaks every now and then, but even married to Peter is living paycheck to paycheck and attending classes at ESU to get a degree she can fall back on. The whole reason they made her a supermodel before the 1...

Sir Ian McKellan as Gandalf still has a lot of action scenes.

Re: What should be Peter's age Range?

I personally like the crazy theory that Franklin Richards has been subconsciously using his reality warping, god-like powers to mess with the passage of time while keeping everyone from noticing ever since he was born.
