This thread is all about Marvel comics. Captain America, Spider-Man, Iron Man Wolverine, Thor, Hulk, Daredevil, X-Men, Avengers and all of the Marvel characters you know from the Marvel vs. Capcom games and many many more! Feel free to discuss anything related to Marvel from comics, movies, cartoons, etc.

Just remember, not everyone is reading what you are so use spoiler tags when necessary.

"THIS ONE'S FOR JJ!" :rofl:

*****

So to kick things off, here's the Marvel comics I read this week.

Civil War The Initiative - Oh nos Bendis is talking about Xorn again, please make him stop! Silvestri's pencils were great but parts of the book were reprints of a few pages from Captain America to Mighty Avengers.

Sensational Spider-Man - This was really cool because there was a bunch of Spider-Man knock offs and they all had different Spider-Man suits! One of them wore the Scarlet Spider-Man outfit and another wore the Spidey-Armor suit seen in Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter!

Wolverine was.... strange. Spoilers -
Okay, I was happy there was red blood in the book because there usually isn't any when Wolverine and Sabretooth fight, they usually swap it out with brown, black, purple blood and whatever color they can come up with that's not red. Granted, they didn't use the bright colored 52 blood that I've been digging but so long as it's a shade of red I'm happy. But this was... really odd. Wolverine chopped off Sabretooth's hand off! Sabretooth put his hand back on and it healed back into place. Um... WHAT? Since when can he pull an Absorbing Man in Secret Wars trick? Oh J.Loeb what is you doing....

    OH OH!!! I wanna be the first post!
    Captain America is dead!!!! NOOOOOO!!!!


    I read last week's Amazing Spiderman and it was alright. For some reason, I'm not big on "angry" Peter Parker. But, when shit hits the fan for Aunt May, somebody's gotta pay. And the fact that he had the suit hidden aside a building for so long almost makes me wonder if he just strolled by to keep webbing it up every now and again. There should a 12 part story discussing that. I'd buy it.

    I wasn't too keen on Civil War the Initiative. But.......
    making Xorn the new Guardian was pretty cool. I guess.

    And I finally scored a copy of Cap A #25, so I'll read that and The Confession this weekend.

    Ultimate Power was pretty weak. It's really playing out like any old school FF story where Reed does something stupid involving another dimension and fucking shit up for those people. I felt like I read this before in a past life. Excelsior?

    Yeah someone brought that up at Newsarama. Apparently Spider-Man when he had web shooters officially uses a weaker strain of webbing that will disolve in a few hours so criminals can get arrested by cops, but if not for that the webbing can last for years.

    JMS messed up though. May's Maiden name isn't Fitzgerald, it's Reilly. Unless this is something they decided to retcon or something...

    I started reading Planet Hulk lastnight. I've never picked up a Hulk comic before because he doesn't really interest me(except when he's going apeshit on people), but I'm very much liking the fact that he can get his ass handed to him on this planet. Looking forward to WWH at this rate.
    Being the only person to follow the rules, and then getting mocked relentlessly by my peers for it... that's the kind of shit that creates supervillans.

    Seriously...what the hell are they doing? Looks like they are trying to give Wolvie and 'Tooth new origins or something. Really effin weird origins at that.
    Shin-Mech-Brian: As I walk through, I look up and see Chun-Li holding my son and she says, "arrest him!" Ronald McDonald pulls up from behind me and put me in handcuffs. I ask why I'm being arrested and he says, "I'm under arrest for killing Santa Clause."

    A lot of what they do with those two is retarded now, Wolverine should NOT be able to regenerate completely from just his skeleton in the time it takes for someone to be blown off in a short cell phone call. Hell, he really shouldn't be able to regenerate from that state period. I guess he was just playing all those times that he took longer to recover, also one wonders how punching him or anything like that could actually cause enough harm to take him out of commission. It's just....annoying.

    I like angry Spidey, but I doubt they'll take it anywhere. Also...doesn't everyone already know who he is now? How are they going to take care of that little problem?

    ^ Isn't One More Day going to fix that? And the marriage :(
  • SanoSano I'm on the PSP! Joined: Posts: 12,260Registered, Moderators
    One More Day isn't going to fix his identity thing according to Marvel, they are gonna keep Spidey's identity known to the public for a while AFAIK, could be wrong but I haven't read otherwise. Something is supposed to happen with the marriage though we just don't know what. Quesada said before he doesn't want to divorce them or kill of MJ because he wants to perserve the youth of Spider-Man and a divorcee or a widow isn't going to do that. Well we'll see what happens...
  • DSDS Hell Revealed Joined: Posts: 4,904Registered
    Man, how do you make EVERYONE forget who Spidey is? Unless they're gonna do a Men In Black crossover and pull out a huge Neuralizer from the Statue of Liberty, I don't see how you can execute this.

    It's only been a few days but it seems like having both Marvel and DC Threads is working out great, so unless a large amount of people want me to merge them down the road I'll keep it as is for now. :smile:

    With Dr. Strange and all the high level psychics and reality warpers around, it is possible. The main problem is our reaction, an outrageous one would lead to a retcon. That's why they're trying to come up with something that will leave the fandom at ease.

    So far I loved how the One More Day previews
    Peter literally webbed the crap out of Tony, stopping his Uni Beam and his Rocket Boots, HIS UNI BEAM AND ROCKET BOOTS !

    Everyone already thinks civil war was a stupid idea though, so it might actually NOT piss everyone off as much as it otherwise would.

    But, then it ruins the awesomeness of The New Avengers. And that book has been ridiculously hot post-Civil War. So in the end, it's all gonna suck no matter what.

    I'd hate to say it, but my money is on Scarlett Witch retconning shit. I just smell it. You just can't bring her back and say, "Well, she's back guys! EXCELSIOR!"

    That isn't gonna fly. Especially after Civil War ended so horribly.

    Heh, to my suprise Marvel did go over May's maiden name accidentally being Fitzgerald and the webbing ordeal in the last issue of Amazing Spider-Man.

    Q: Themanofbat 03-24-2007 05:15 PM

    Inasmuch as I've enjoyed JMS' run on Amazing Spider-Man, I've really got to wonder who edits his books, because a few doozies really got by the last issue (ASM #539).

    First of all, why does Peter refer to Aunt May's maiden name as Fitzgerald when it's been pretty much established as being Reilly?

    Secondly, how does Marvel explain the webbing that holds up his black costume at the end of the issue? His old chemically made webbing dissolved within an hour or two, and though we've yet to hear how long his new organic webbing lasts, it can't be forever. Because if it does, then Peter kills the cop in ASM #539 by suffocating him with his webbing (on account that it would have covered his face for faaaaaaaaaaaar too long)?

    JQ: Hey, Themanofbat, thanks for the question. As to the first part, Axel, who edits the book, wanted to explain.

    Axel Alonso: That was an error. Just slipped through the cracks. JMS emailed us to fact-check Aunt May's maiden name, and in a glitch, we gave him the wrong name. It was one of those "D'oh!" moments that just got past everyone here. We've fixed it for the second print and the trade.

    JQ: There you go, Themanofbat, you get yourself a NoPrize! Expect that not to be in the mail.

    As for the second half, JMS himself has you answer.

    JMS: Going in reverse order...whether or not the webbing lasted over an hour or not is not relevant to the cop, who would have suffocated within minutes if it had covered his nose and mouth, but it did not. The only purpose was to immobilize him.

    Second, it's been established that Peter had to modify his original web fluid so that it dissolved within an hour to insure that nobody got trapped there for an undetermined amount of time and potentially died. Since we did not see the scene in which he puts the costume up there, I would submit to you that he used the unmodified, longer lasting webbing. Since each new batch has to be changed in order to make it last an hour, having the basic materials to put it there would not have been difficult.

    Hey if you're willing to part with it that's fine. Seriously though, think about it. You may want to line a birdcage one day. :rofl:

    J/K. Seriously though, never read it, the concept just always sounded... um, not good... I suppose that makes it a good 51 Poo! Prize though. :sweat:

    Yep, he begun with class 10 strength, when he was a 15 years old boy; the Avengers Dissassembled arc left him with a nifty +5 ton bonus and the organic webshooters. And "The Other" further increased his strength, gave him some new powers and apparently took his webbing to the next level.

    If MvC3 ever comes out (. . .), I hope Spidey gets the treatment he deserves.

    I don't know man I sure don't want his fake Wolverine claws AKA his stingers popping out when he fights Darkstalkers. See, they come out randomly when he fights against magical / mystical people. :rofl:

    Stray thought, now that he has those white triangle things on the back of his hands because of the black suit, the fake Wolverine claws can come out of there! BRILLIANT! Then again... those stingers are really lame... glad no one is writing about those things...

    I, as well, own the first appearance of Maggot AND Cecilia Reyes. Because I am awesome. I also part with that four part crapper that John Byrne wrote to end off the first volume of all the key Spidey books. The title escapes me. I have a lot of goodies I can get rid of to clear my name.

    Also, Ever, I shall counter this trout with my God Fist Smash. Be ready.

    Yeah the Maggot / Magneto thing was where they revealed his origin. I have the comics with his and Cecilia's first appearance too but for some reason I hate parting with Uncanny / Regular X-Men and / or Spider-Man comics in any capacity, no matter how bad they are. Well, Liefeld hasn't messed with either too much... And Devin Grayson hasn't written for either AFAIK...
