So this is how a conversation with a friend of his would go in a month's time:
Tom - Marvel is so evil. I didn't even see The Avengers on opening night!
Friend - So you never saw the movie?
Tom - I never said that, I saw it a week later. But I hope they learned their lesson and will treat the Kirby estate better!
Friend - Do you think they even noticed?
Tom - It doesn't matter. It made me feel better at least.
Friend - Wait, I thought you liked DC better anyways and weren't even excited for this movie? Was there even a sacrifice?
Tom - Exactly.
