    OK! This answer made me laugh

    "Are there any plans on creating some more Marvel 'What if' issues?"

    Alonso: I dunno, Rollo. Our distinguished competition seems to have cornered the "What If?" market.

    I think it would be amusing if the AR app can have Wacker's head show up, and saying something like, "You said you aren't buying marvel books anymore"

    A little Wacker-love for his 'fans' here.

    Alonso: Fear not. I was X-Men Group Editor when Hope was created back in "Messiah CompleX," so I'm deeply invested in making sure her story -- which is at the core of the X-Men's prospects for the future -- isn't derailed by anything.

    Speaks volumes.

    Alonso: I dunno, Rollo. Our distinguished competition seems to have cornered the "What If?" market.

    Maybe if you did you might have a book in the Top Ten then Alonso. Stay classy.

    You think a Marvel "What If?" series would be in the top ten, Sabrewulf? Interesting. They haven't sold that well in the past. Have you observed any audience changes since their last incarnation? What would you suggest to relaunch the line of "What If?"

    You do I get that's not at all what I was getting at?

    Alonso was having a dig at the DC I was just pointing out if the DCnU books are What If's then they Marvel could do with a few What If's that sell that well themselves.

    (Basically they can be a snarky as they want about the DCnU when Marvel take's all the Top Ten spots)

    Which probably isn't as satisfying as making more overall money.

    Also, I somehow suspect the reboot speculation will continue, despite this column.

    Ok, so it's not a reboot. But what it's a line-wide relaunch that also resets all the continuity?

    So I'm guessing a NO to my Maria Hill origin story question.

    Maybe not but they maybe shouldn't take pot shots at a company that's taken all Top Ten spots though. It makes them look petty.

    Plus yet again, I'd like to see what would happen if DC double shipped 20 of their best selling titles. It is that easy for DC to beat Marvel. Not so much for Marvel to take the Top Ten back now is it?

    They poke at them when they aren't taking all top ten spots... that stuff only matters to you.
