    Nice message they're sending there.

    /end rant.

    I have no problem with implied promiscuity between characters in the Marvel Universe, as destro notes below, it's nothing new and adults do have sex in the real world. However, I wholeheartedly agree that ending the one marriage that was working in the MU -- especially with one of the most crap-tacular reboots/resets ever -- was stupid beyond belief.

    On a related note, my girlfriend has an Indian farther and an English mother and I would never have known that she had any Indian ancestry at all had she not told me. She has very dark hair (but then, so too do many people of English origin), but her skin is every bit as pale as mine. Interestingly, she is the most English looking of all her siblings, with the four children in the family ranging from "very Indian-looking" to "not very Indian-looking at all". It seems that skin colouring among the offspring of mixed race parents is a bit of a lottery.

    They used to make movies out of the comics. Now they make comics out of the movies.
    Disney knows where the money is and set the priorities.

    The movies' Nick Fury was the Ultimates version from day one (even from day minus two thousand, considering Samuel L. Jackson was used as a model almost from the start). What was the need to retroactively bring another Jackson (or a facsimile thereof) in the Marvel universe proper? The movies are much closer in tone to the Ultimate universe series anyway.

    Diktats from above rarely go well with old fans, and new comics fans created by the movies number in what, a few dozens? What need is there to streamline the movies with the old MU?

    'The new Nick Fury does sound pretty dumb, but Fury is one of those Marvel characters that I think has received its definitive treatment, first in Strange Tales, then in Steranko's "Nick Fury, Agent of SHIELD" series, so I don't feel too much interest in whatever Marvel's doing with it now. Best thing is to ignore it altogether, I find - although the internet does make it harder to do that.

    I might try that miniseries Garth Ennis did a few years back, though - anyone read it? I'm a bit leery of even writers I like when they take on established characters, but Fury seems like the kind of character that would be a good fit for Ennis's style.
