March 2003. That month had four Ultimate books in the top ten including Ultimate X-men. No Ultimate book has cracked the top ten since and many have declined to the point where they're no better than they were before Ultimatum. Now I'm sure Death of Spider-man will boost sales like it did for Fantastic Four. Death does that, but it's a gimmick. We all know how gimmicks work in that they're temporary. And to me if Marvel is relying on killing beloved characters like Spider-Man and those that were killed in Ultimatum, then they're running out of ideas.
You're giving me way too much power. I don't have the ability to ruin anybody's excitement over anything. The only power I have is crafting dirty metaphors that involve poop jokes, animal cruelty, and drug references. That's not enough to change anybody's mind. I don't just use them to get a cheap laugh. I use them to make a point. Some of your points are valid. I'm open to discussing them, but if you don't care to I understand. I have my opinions and you have yours. I'll defend mind and you can defend yours if you want. It's up to you and at the end of the day it doesn't amount to a third of a lump of a squirrel turd floating around in bong water. You see? I used all three that time! It helps make a point or it's good for a cheap laugh.Just deleted my post. I dont feel like arguing over such a tired subject we've all been over a million times.
I read what I read, you read what you read. I come here to discuss what I enjoy, I dont go around trying to ruin people's excitement over a book.
See, when I explain myself I try to use relevant analogies, not crude humor. I usually appreciate that kind of levity, but not when I was attempting to have a serious discussion. I say good day to you sir. And good luck in your endeavors and such.
