    Fuck you, Adams.
    Tool!
    What?!

    I hate the way people see the 60s Batman and the silly cartoons as somehow less valid then the silly gritty ones.

    Gerswin's Riddler is arguably the iconic version of the character.

    That's bollocks anyway imo, only thing he could be held slightly responsible for is drawing it at the time Ras Al Ghul was introduced and he had a magic super power pit and a hot hot slut for a daughter, so nothing like the films. That po-faced shit came in around 89/90 when the comics-fags reached immaturity.

    Plubs

    The 60s Batman rescued Batman. DC was going to cancel due to terrible sales. I completely rejuvinated the franchise and without it we wouldn't have Batman.

    So you could hate it for those reasons, I guess. :)

    According to Ralph Garman, I should add.

    I can see the reasoning behind the argument, due to the awful restrictions that the CCA placed on storytelling in the 50s.

    Yeah, Bolland rocks. I have The Killing Joke and his Judge Death collection that I'd love to get signed.
    This. After all his 2000ad stuff, and the Killing Joke Bolland is an artist I really like.

    Dan Slott now confirmed amongst a host of others. There will be a special LSCC variant of Superior Spidrrman #1 he'll be signing.

    Wife has given the all clear. Family is setting sail (plane) at the end of Feb. Will order tickets later this month. My first ever comic con. Can't wait.

    I'm sure he'll be getting a lot of that. He's had Death Threats.

    Even One More Day?

    Look at it this way, would you rather have them put Norman Osborne in the suit?

    :)

    Personally I quite like the idea of a more in-depth look at the sort of stuff that was only really hinted at back in Kraven's Last Hunt, so I don't have a problem with having a villain in the suit for a while. The trick will be in the execution, but I have confidence in Slott to pull it off ok.

    Just dropping by to say:

    Get Saga by Brian K Vaughn with fantastic art by Fiona Staples. It is excellent.

    The MJ stuff has the potential to be quite disturbing.

    But I did like his first couple of fights as Spidey, realising how much of a battering Parker took and how much Parker held back.

    its treading perilously close to the rape issue that these shitty bodyswap stories always misjudge.
    I've seen that getting a lot of attention over on the CBR boards recently. I like to think Slott's not daft enough to fall into that trap.

    From a plothole waiting to happen POV, I'm wondering how they side step the whole "universe full of telepaths" issue.

    Interestingly or not, they have actually fixed that universe wide by nerfing or outright killing all the telepaths.
    Well, until they decided to bring back the X-gene.

    Did it ever get answered as to whether or not MJ actually remembers how things were pre-OMD? I seem to remember it being heavily implied but don't recall it ever being resolved.

    Legion is on the loose at present. That could be amusing.

    I dont really read spiderman so I dont know.

    But none of the shitty mutants they have found recently have been telepaths.
    Jean Grey is back though (sort of) and she's bound to have some interaction with the Avengers now that the two sides are officially working together. And Emma Frost is still around.

    I imagine it's something that will more likely be addressed in Avenging Spider-Man than the new Superior title though.

    Can you do a complete summary of everything that's happening in the marvel universe for us?

    If you have a spare week or two I could give the last 30 years a broad shot.
