    Alonso: Even "mature readers" comics should be subjected to editorial standards. Some years ago, I edited a story that featured a scene portraying the aftermath of a rape that was, to my mind, staged in a salacious manner. The rapist was a character the reader had been trained to cheer for – everything he did was, well, too cool for school. And there was nothing about the way the scene was staged to make them think any different about that character – the fact that he'd just violently raped a woman was just one more thing to add to his resume that made him look like a badass. After a discussion with the writer, we agreed and came up with a way to stage it so it didn't come off that way. So it gave the reader pause, took them out of their comfort zone.
    Morbidly curious here, anyone know what book and character he's referring to?

    am I the only one that thinks Apocalypse no longer has a place in the MU? I mean didn't the Celestials take him out last time? and didn't Cable take out his disembodied spirit thing when they separated it from Cyclops before that? and didn't he get taken out by Stryfe before that? and didn't he get taken out by cyclops before that?...

    Absolutely.

    Then again, I'm not a fan. The Simonsons' managed to get a couple of good stories out of him, but everyone else since . . . not so much.

    I would guess it's something Vertigo-related.

    I don't agree with the assessment that because they've been showing the Man Without Fear ads that it should have been the logical conclusion Daredevil's book was ending entirely. Captain America didn't end without Steve. Heck, Punisher kept going as Frankencastle. If I recall correctly, and I could be totally wrong, the last time they did something like this, "Is Character X the New Black Panther," NONE of the characters shown became the Black Panther in that first arc. Heck, Batman didn't end after Batman: RIP, nor did Superman after Death of Superman or Green Lantern after Emerald Twilight. And going back to Black Panther, T'Challa got taken out in the first issue of the last series and lost the mantle and the book continued through 12 issues, 6 issues of Doomwar, a quick story in Age of Heroes #4, and the upcoming Klaws of the Panther, none of which had the main BP in the role, so, Tom, don't give us that we should have seen it definitively as a foregone conclusion based on stupid teasers that more often than not are just smoke up our asses anyway.

    I've been enjoying the hell out of Shadowland and the minis and everything and Daredevil jumped to my pull list for the first time in anticipation of the event and I expected a temporary shift, maybe continuing the book a la Captain America or any of the bazillion Batman books or Superman books. Iron Fist took the mantle for a while for Matt and the book went on. I'm shocked because of the recent renumbering (but they're right about how quick Avengers went away after its renumbering) and because the title was selling better than a lot of other books that haven't gotten axed. I hope they've got some big finish planned for this bad boy!

    DOCTOR BONG!!!!!

    The issue(s?) of the original Deadpool with him in them were so good. Let's see if anyone gets this Dr. Bong reference.

    This will be awesome!

    the iron man: viva las vegas answer is a joke. it's been more than just a few months since the book was possibly going to be finished; the third issue was canceled almost two years ago. there was never any recent plans to revisit it.

    the first two issues weren't even that good, anyway...
    and i'm counting 1, counting 2, counting 3...

    Me too. I was thinking Cassidy. I'm pretty sure he raped someone, didn't he? I mean, besides Tulip, but that was a little different. Unless it was someone in 100 Bullets. Lono, maybe?

    Sorry you didn't care for the answer, but that was a real answer, more or less. No plans for Onslaught at the moment.
