    I hope he doesn't, because Martin needs to focus on his writing. He turns 60 this year and still has at least 3 big books to write before he retires. He doesn't have time (or inclination I'm guessing) to waste time on a frivolous lawsuit. And I'm stunned that you don't understand the reference at hand:

    Here's a big hint:



    You should try reading the daily paper more often. Sometimes real-world events are even more interesting than Marvel comics.

    Some of that seems off, so I'll do my own.

    Ace of Spades: Thor
    He's probably the single most powerful person on Earth. And that was before he got the runes and odinforce powerups. He's also got a loyal kingdom full of badass viking gods and powerful alien allies(BRB).

    Ace of Hearts: Iron Man
    Tony's got his hands in everything these days. Not only is his armor stronger than it's ever been; he's also weilding more influence and control than any single human alive today.

    Ace of Diamonds: Dr. Doom
    He's got just as much experience and intelligence as Reed, his own kingdom, access to powerful magics, and has created tech that surpasses the Skrull's own.

    Ace of Clubs: Namor
    For all the reasons they listed.


    Kings:
    Dr. Strange-Would count as an ace if Bendis hadn't spent so much time nerfing him.
    Black Panther-He's got some of the world's best tech and an unlimited supply of vibranium.
    Prof X-Can call upon some very powerful mutants and perhaps some extra-terrestrial allies.
    Magneto- One of the most powerful mutants, a brilliant scientist and leader, and has loyal mutant followers.

    Only if Hoyle gets to sue Martin.




    Speaking of which, anyone want to get all conspiracy theory-ish that Doc was left out of the Aces for a reason? I mean, other than the fact that there aren't enough, but still?

    I bet Spider-Man shows up way higher than anyone expects.

    And his wonderful new WildCard Comic series coming from Dabel Brothers Publishing.

    But yeah it used more in the sense like the Iraq Deck of cards than the Martin one.

    Wonderful. Wait for the furor from people who are going to find it racist that T'Challa gets named the King of Spades.

    Shouldn't BP be an Ace since he is i. brillian, 2. the absolute ruler of the most technologically advanced country on the planet, 3. married to a very powerful mutant and 4. a potential leader of a group of non-alighned states/nations (Latvaria, Atilla, the dispersed Atlantean civilization through alliance with Namor). I think BO is being very underrated given the resources he has.

    I'd be willing to bet that the main reason he's not an "Ace" is that nobody could resist the pun of making him a "King."
