    I don't understand why Marvel and writers are having such a hard time getting the Hulk right for a modern audience. It's a very simple proposition for me:

    1. Iconic Setting: You have to ground the...

    I understand your plight, but that way lies madness. The fundamental problem I see is that superhero universes are often taken far too seriously as a construct; they're really not that far removed...

    I like DC, but one of the main reasons I'll always like Marvel more is the setting; what IS Metropolis? Gotham City? Central City? They are great as serving as generic exemplar's of major cities with...

    Even as a kid, I always thought that blaring of loud music in public around a group of people that are more or less strangers, from a boom-box or from a vehicle, was annoying and dickish. It can't...

    I've always loved the expressions Bolland is able to capture in his drawings; I've never seen Superman look more smug or dickish. If Superman had that expression all the time, I'm sure he'd appeal to...

    I agree; 1992 seems to be roughly the time that Marvel and DC went to hell. Obviously Image and the speculator boom are the main culprits. To be perfectly honest, neither continuity has felt "real"...

    It's not that Marvel was ever more "realistic" than DC in term of physics, superpowers, magic, etc; it was that Marvel characters were often more psychologically realistic; this of course is a moot...

    The problem with the Surfer and Thor (I can sympathize with writers) is that you really can never write them using all their abilities strategically and still have them partake in prolong battles....

    I buy all my trades at discount sites and on the one I frequent the most, all the SOFTCOVER Masterwork's are $13 bucks each. (They even have frequent sales where they drop to under $10) This is...

    I have wondered if it would be feasible to reprint the comics in color as they appeared in the original newsprint. Of course I'm not sure exactly what they use to produce the Essential line. Is their...

    I'm going to discount characters like Hyperion, Sentry, Blue Marvel and even Gladiator (though I actually like Gladiator) because they aren't "real" characters to me in the same way that the Surfer...

    I bought the first four volumes of FF and a few others when they came out, but I could never get past the black and white; it's problematic spending years reading a genre in color and then reading...

    I think it would be better for the Matt Fraction's of the world to have success at Image and leave Marvel behind. I'm not a huge fan of Fraction's preferred subject matter in regards to his creator...

    And that's why some veteran creators, like Byrne, would be better served being their own editors + assistants; Byrne doesn't even particularly care for the Legion, but he put more thought into how to...

    Well, the Joker certainly has, or had, a motif; the clown/party trick thing. Of course beyond the white face and painted on grin, that's been all but eliminated in the Nu52. I guess I just find it...

    The problem with your stance, like many similar to yours, is that there doesn't seem to be a sense that what those companies did was wrong. Just because something is LEGAL doesn't mean it's morally...

    I'd just like to point out that I'm not prejudice against gingers because they have red hair; I'm prejudice against them because they glow in the dark. I've never been a big fan of flashlights, and...

    Actually, I meant 5-10% of all the responsibility as is reasonable for a creator. Image exists, right? The creators own the characters and concepts of each book. It's my very layman understanding...

    Says you. Why should a corporation that has no hand in the actual creation process own these characters 100%? All I'm suggesting is that the talent be given 5-10% (give or take) ownership and you...
