Proving that JR is always right...

Post by Spideydude » Thu Apr 09, 2009 11:29 am

"So certainly, the GG [Green Goblin] could hardly be any reason for me quitting Marvel"

"Now digest this: I knew from Day One, from the first GG story, who the GG would be... I planted him in J. Jonah Jameson's businessman's club."

"I planted the GG's son (same distinct hair style) in the college issues..."

From Steve himself.

JR Fettingers Marvel:I'd hire Spideydude to be me at conventions, with his cowboy hat, a cigar sticking out of his mouth, and a beer in his hand because he would certainly look a lot "cooler" and "more relatable" to the fanbase that a short, gray haired middle aged man.

I'm betting he means Steve Ditko, not to ever be confused with Steve Wacker.

"The ground quakes and the heavens cry tears of blood when Kevin gives out his brand of Crawlspace justice. Babies cry, grown men avert their eyes, women pass out and even the wind gives pause. Kevin’s eyes glow and lightning crackles around them. It’s pretty epic and definitely not for the timid." - Michael Bailey

Sorry, I should've made it clear that It was our favorite recluse, Ditko. I got it off of that other Message Board, heres the post:

One of the commenters on that article (who runs this very cool blog: http://ditko.blogspot.com/ ) kindly posted a few quotes from Ditko's most recent article in Robin Snyder's "The Comics", where he amongst other things, is bitchign about Marvel's breaking the 'toys' and pissing all over the costume.

The Marvel editorial mind could really try to “smash” the Law of Identity–A is A–of man as a hero, by smashing not the second, merely conventional hero label–Spider-Man–but what some editors tried to “smash” with the new Spider-Man costume: his visual identity, with a different, anti-Spider-Man costume, but the original costume, its identity, its reality, the original creation, is the original creation, the visual, existing Spider-Man, and that “status quo” identity stymies them if Spider-Man is Spider-Man.

They need that original creation because they still want, need, to keep feeding off the two labels: super hero, Spider-Man, and my costume design, off the “toy” believed, held, as a “trifle”.

So as much as the “status quo” Marvel editorial mentalities act to destroy, want to have them “smashed” to create “broken” pieces, those identities continue to mock, ridicule, their motive and their anti-hero, anti-mind behavior.


But the Quote Mentioned in my original post is from The Comics, a small press newsletter published monthly by Robin Snyder.

I read into it that Norman was planned by Stan and Steve. Steve started to plant him in the issues, and then set up that he was Osborn. It seems that the theory that he wanted him to be a nobody, someone in the Background.

I've always been saying that the problem with modern comics was too much anti-mind behavior

I love that JR has the aura of being right. He's very funny and entertaining all the time so I'm just chiming in with my opiniions. Keep up the good work, Madgoblin.
