Man, people remain mad about this. Part of me wishes I could join them in their righteous anger, but I... just don't mind what's happening here. For one, on a very emotional, how-do-I-feel level, I'm still enjoying these issues. I like the characters. Kindred's last words (for now) were just so sad and carried so much baggage. We get pay off to what happened in Last Remains, we really do. Kindred more

Comics Code Authorities - Jan 16, 2021

I'm not going into a political discussion because that stuff is too venomous these days. With today's comics though I figure it will be a mini-series with a title like "Impeach Fisk" or something. Odds are a lot of heroes will get involved and it'll have tie-ins. Anything that will sell a lot of issues.

Psycamorean - Jan 16, 2021

Probably. I wasn't trying to invoke a political discussion, it's just that those two things are very much related, so when one ends, the other probably isn't far behind.

Haha, I'm so behind. This issue was better than the last, but not by much. It takes a bit to get going. But when it does, I'm really enjoying it. I wish there was more Peter Parker stuff, but I can only assume we'll get more of that soon enough.

This is fine, I wish it were better. It would be way better if the writer was okay with a conservative lie like Brexit, that upheaved the economy, took Britain down several pegs on the world stage and cut them off from the rest of the much-better European nations. I wonder why anyone would dislike the direction of their country after such a big-brained maneuver.

I do agree with you re China. The west should be standing together over the rise of China, and not just economically. However the EU was not the vehicle for this. Britain can still cooperate with the EU if they can get over their sulk. But we are supposed to be reviewing comics so I'll leave it there.

At least you were able to say something instead of just back pedaling, Briton.

Whedon's Astonishing X-Men run established that Scott's lack of control was due to self-imposed mental blocks, and apparently those are hard to fix in the long term (see also, Byrne's explanation for the Thing's inability to remain human in FF).
