    I plan on playing both until my next membership ends. I want to collect the rest of the heroes and have some gold for when a limited time hero(s) comes out. I might take breaks from this except for logging on to get the daily 5 gold

    I'm still going to play both, I like to show off my Armored Spidey :D

    But, obviously, I will play more of Marvel Heroes. Mostly cause it's a more extensive game, tons more to do in it, plus my favorite type of video game genre. I love ARPGs.

    Absolutely, but some version of every hero who's been in a movie (including all the main X-Men characters) are in SHSO... the hang-up on Namor just doesn't make sense to me since he hasn't become a big franchise yet.

    Character licensing never made much sense to me either. Maybe Namor's problem is similar to old problem with the Human Torch. Character licensing was why Spiderman's Amazing Friends were Firestar & Iceman rather than the Human Torch & Iceman, back in the day. That bit of character licensing affected the Fantastic Four cartoon too... That lineup consisted of Reed, Sue, Ben, and H.E.R.B.I.E. You see, the Human Torch first appeared in Marvel Comics #1 from 1939 which was owned by Timely Comics. When Timely became Marvel they had the rights to use him in a comic but never did until about a month before those rights were set to revert back to the Human Torch's creator, Carl Burgos. That's when Fantastic Four #1 came out back in 1961. Lawsuits were involved shortly thereafter and that's why he's not in those old cartoons.

    Along a similar note, I recall reading some accusations that Marvel killed off Nightcrawler so they wouldn't have to pay Dave Cockrum's widow royalties.

    Strangely, I thought was a movie rights issue that kept the Human Torch out of the Fantastic Four cartoon.

    Thanks for the link and that very well could be, Charles. If you have time, here's where I read about Timely and the Human Torch. It's an excerpt from Marvel: The Untold Story by Sean Howe. It doesn't mention the use of the Human Torch in other media, I just made the assumption the creator rights were part of the problem.

    So, does anyone know what they're doing if there are "restocking" the specials in the stores?

    Did you enter to Ben's contest? If you don't, What are you waiting for?? You can win one of two Classic Wolverine codes! and that's not all, besides the Canadiense Mutant, the code also does give you 2 week trial-membership! Which sum more than 2000 gold. What do you have to do? Well just a simple poetry or song about a Super Hero, it needs to be "Hilarious" and "Creative", and it should NOT have content offensive, racist or explicit language. Send your poetry or song to mynameisbenfromcanada@hotmail.com and make sure to give a screen name if you don't want your real name revealed. The best 5 entries will be read by our judges, only 2 will be chosen! and both 1st and 2nd place will win a Classic Wolverine code. Watch the official video of the contest here -> Geek Thoughts

    It always does that Wednesday/Thursday. We could end up with nothing new since it is Thursday afternoon or no mystery pic has been posted yet.
