    June 25, 2017 2:29 pm Aquaman: I couldn't agree with Conor more concering Aquaman #25. The world building that Abnet has been doing finally came full circle and I agree that it is a much need uptick in pacing and energy. That coupled with just about the perfect art for this book has made it a near perfect super hero comic right now. Mighty Thor: I just don't understand how Volstagg becomes a 'deadlier- bloodier' Thor in the last few pages. Is it the Ultimate Hammer? I mean why- what was all the description about the 'New kind of Thor'? I found that confusing. In what way would Volstagg become that kind of Thor? And is Jane going to pick up the 616 mjolnir? I mean is Thor-Thor going to really let her die and talk smack to her about their "romantic dalliances"?? I don't know I am glad Josh enjoyed this but I found it kind of rambling mess. I also couldn't care less about an Elfen war. To my mind Aaron is running out of gas on this title. It is lonnng past it- not being worthy as a driving force. Pick up the Hammer Thor. Batman: I mean Tom is a very good writer and that comes through but it seems like every single issue his Batman has candles burning and the Cure on in the background. It's just Soo emo - I don't hear or feel the confidence of a man steeled in training and resolve. He seems to question Everything. And it has felt like it was King wandering around a bit trying to chart a course. I want more complexity in Batman and in the history of Batman that action hero- near invulnerable ninja persona has been leaned on too much. I think what we have here is the other side of the coin and I m rapidly getting sick of the indecision and emotional introspection.
    June 6, 2017 11:31 am Recently writers have really done a character assassination on Scott Summers. Mostly it seems out of a lack of ideas and a need for a new old Magneto but I have to say the Madeline Pryor story line is a prime example old school uncharacteristic Scott Summers dickery. I mean he figuratively(not literally Ron) went to the store for milk on his wife and kids. You say you don't like X-Man, but I would tell you to read or re-read the Warren Ellis run on that book. It's a great alternate Madeline Pryor story ad well a great X-Man book.
    June 5, 2017 6:58 pm Ha- You think Cable is boring but that the clone of Jean Grey got a raw deal. Which I happen to agree with but just goes to prove that everyone is someones character. You might be in the minority of the Madeline Pryor fan club.
    June 4, 2017 4:29 pm Secret Empire #3 was the throw spaghetti at the wall and see what sticks. Too many disparate elements- and have to disagree with the art- murky - hazed and hard to decipher. Every scene seems to have the same mood. Batshit crazy doesn't always equal well written. I like Cable as a character quite a bit- but I have to say Conor is right- this book was exactly the definition of a middle of the road. This might be slow burn Robinson but it also seems like it might be the Robinson who isn't terribly excited about what he's doing. Thankfully it wasn't disinterested Robinson where he goes overly verbose to hide make up for that. *Technically Cable is the son of Cyclops and the clone of Jean Grey=Madeline Pryor. Cliff- Josh Norm- Ron Conor- Frasier. Set loose the flood of Cheers analog opinions::
    June 2, 2017 10:14 am What was reaay great about Luke Cage? Was it the fact that the actor Looked just like Luke Cage? Was the soundtrack? Was it the look of the series? Yes- Yes- Yes Was it the acting, was it on screen chemistry- was it Diamondback? Yeah-- No. We give so much more credit to Luke Cage and not Iron Fist when they basically come from the same formula with the same flaws. Marvel's problem now is being a victim of the production line.
    May 28, 2017 3:06 pm Infamous is good old Bendis- but if this IS Reed actually- then that's not ok and if it's Ultimate Reed or another dimension Reed- Get to it.
    May 28, 2017 2:42 pm WoW I never thought that Ron would be the voice of reason in pronounciation. But- He is right. Kah-Man-Dee In most dialects of English, 'a' is normally pronounced either /æ/ or /ɛɪ/, as in "man" and "mane". There are relatively few words where it is pronounced /a/ (as in "ah"), and they tend to vary quite a lot with dialect (eg "pass" and "graph" have that vowel in SE England, but not in most of the English speaking world.)
    May 28, 2017 9:35 am I think the comments, lack of, speak to Ryan being right about this one. It was boring. I could barely finish it. Yes, there were moments and the animation was well done. But the trope and cliché of relationship talk during a battle and Terra's over the top tough girl/whining was a bit much. I think there should be an iFanboy rule for any kind of movie- there must be a minimum of one day to reflect before giving an opinion/analysis. I can't imagine this one fairing that well as time passes.

    May 14, 2017 5:58 pm Al Ewing is one of the most underrated Marvel writers- he gets the universe and concepts and makes it new while retaining the core elements of the characters. Like Hickman crossed with Yost.
