    Escape from the Eighth City is a familiar warrior-prisoner story, predictable, but never rote, that benefits from well-executed storytelling and…

    August 11, 2010 10:30 pm So you're saying this Chameleon story is like another Chameleon story? And that there is really only one schtick for the character to provide? Really?

    @Otto 

    How much of the JMS run did you read? While he struggled with a lot of the powers and super hero stuff, his May and MJ were some of the best iterations of them ever written. If anything, MJ might have been too big a part of the story, but she was never dead weight. And with the wonderful (Eisner-nominated) Spectacular Annual that Matt Fraction did, which featured the marriage front and center, I'd say that it's pretty safe to say that it was just an editorial decision to have Peter be single. That's one thing, and completely arguable from either side, but I don't think it was the case that MJ had become an albatross around the neck of the franchise.

    July 29, 2010 5:33 am No, that was The Destroyer armor. It's indestructible and magic.
    July 29, 2010 2:50 am That.. still seemed kind of hokey to me. I like Thor a lot, but the Asgardian scenes and costumes still seem kind of lame in live action. They're very, very well done, and as good as you could expect... but I just think that the source material is a little too visually divergent from what we're used to seeing for it to work. It looks like people wearing elaborate Halloween costumes. Maybe it has something to do with seeing their whole faces.
    July 27, 2010 11:09 pm Not much you can do if you start the same time as a four parter in ASM, but ASM publishes weekly.

    For Carnage, I just hope that it retains the genuine sense that everyone is at risk. At its best, the character is like a force of nature, and one of the few Spider-Man (or Marvel) villains that doesn't have any agenda other than adding to a body count. No reasoning, no rationalizing, just the relentless threat of mass murder. It's a story that can easily slide off the rails and get tiresome or corny, but I don't think there's another villain in Spidey's rogues gallery who occupies that kind of role.

    July 25, 2010 5:04 pm More on topic, I understand that nothing can go on forever, but the shifting of viewpoints form arc to arc and writer to writer on BND was pretty amazing for the past two years, and while I'm sure I'll continue to enjoy ASM, I think we're really going to understand how special the BND run was once we don't have Spider-Man coming out pretty much every single week, and story arcs finishing up inside of a month.
