As a fellow "Alabama Boy" I second Prof. Chronotis statement.

It's not so much offensive to me as it is laughable.

Gambit is bad enough with the faux Cajun patois, but at least that's a very regionally specific example.

Rogue, who represents a broader "Southern" accent sounds like she stepped out of Gone With the Wind or some such. Do people really think we all talk like that?

I don't mind a little "regional flavor" being sprinkled into a character speech, but damn,back off a bit on the heavy handed southerness.

2017-12-09T13:50:29.312-05:00

"So why the "special" treatment for Southerners? Why only them, and not Russians, or Kree, or Inhumans, or Latverians, or Minnesotans?"

Well, speaking as someone from Northern Ireland, with scots ancestry, I cringe whenever I see someone like Sean Cassidy or Moira MacTaggert turn up.

This Alabama boy couldn't agree more.
Sorry ... "This Ayell-uh-bamma bwah co'n't uhgree moah."

On the same note: why, in the egalitarian respect-for-all future of STAR TREK, does the one racist aboard the Enterprise have to be from the South? "You green-blooded point-eared ..." Just say the "n" word, Bones, you know you want to.

2017-12-08T20:42:01.747-05:00

This kind of story (and more on Super Friends), is why so many people of a generation disliked Superman. We've learned in popular culture to dislike the popular, flawless jock, Superman as depicted here is the epitome of that. I can remember as a kid watching Super Friends imagining that Green Lantern, at least, could best Supes.

I get so much joy from this website! And this line is up there with the tops of that joy!

Yeah, I always theorised that Supes only joined the JLA so he'd have people to get rid of all those annoying chunks of Kryptonite...

"Wh-What's happening?" Ratto's response to Mercury is pretty much my own, too.

2017-12-06T02:30:40.506-05:00

I disliked Monica when she was introduced, for several reasons. First, it seemed that her nom de guerre was chosen simply so Marvel could keep the rights to the name "Captain Marvel." Second, she was so obviously Roger Stern's pet character: her first appearance reduced Spider-Man to an "also featuring" role in his own Annual, and she was made an Avenger, and then leader of the Avengers, with indecent haste. Thirdly, her powerset was off the chain for Marvel, making characters such as, for example, Quicksilver completely superfluous. This also meant that many writers had no idea what to do with her. But trust Byrne to use her to her full potential - a gamma ray laser! That puts her in Silver Surfer class, with her only limitation being the amount of body mass she could transform to energy.

... Maybe if Byrne had written her more, she might have grown on me.

Apropos of Brave and the Bold - Do you know if the Tom Tresser Nemesis stories have ever been collected in trade form?

2017-12-05T21:59:02.868-05:00

That's a key point, because "breakdowns" can be anything from just panel layouts & suggestive panel contents to full pencils. Looking at the whole story, a lot of the "breakdowns" in the Avengers story are clearly Byrne's...in other panels, though, the style seems more Sinnott's. He was always a fairly "heavy " inker...

I own this comic. It is the proof I drag out when I need to prove that Haney was wonderfully insane. It is awesome.

2017-12-05T21:50:10.599-05:00

Can we get Scott McCloud to do a page-by-page, panel-by-panel discussion of the choices here and their differing effects? And maybe explain what “breakdowns” means?

No arguing with that!

2017-12-01T16:11:02.141-05:00

This was a constant in the Silver Age. A character - Lois, Jimmy, Perry, etc - gets super powers and makes mistakes, thus demonstrating that only Superman is worthy of being super. Of course, the characters who gain super powers have about 10 minutes to learn how to use them, while Clark had, at a minimum, 10 years - but let's not acknowledge that.

2017-11-30T08:51:45.893-05:00

There's a lot of talk and writing about how Kryptonite is so necessary to the Superman mythos because otherwise he's so ridiculously powerful that he's never in any peril. I submit that in the Silver Age the peril was far more often involving the loss of his secret identity, with so many plots based on putting Superman in nearly impossible situations where it seemed like his identity just had to be exposed (only for contrived plot twists and the use of his already admitted near limitless powers to preserve it in the end).

Methinks the Kid Eternity writer(s) worked entirely on the "rotgut liquor and 2-hour deadline" philosophy.
