    could partly be that ben’s death was written as somewhat inevitable, whereas the baby didn’t seem so certain. also, ben’s death scene was not overly sympathetic.

    mm. i’m not a fan of pulling out one example to prove a generic point, especially when it’s obvious that greg land isn’t the standard across the board of modern comics. or is that what you’re trying...

    yeah, but how consistent has super hero universe logic ever been? really, genosha, latveria, atlantis etc should significantly alter the political landscape more than they do. the avengers should...

    i’m fond of their stuff, but it’s just not “in vogue”. consistency is not always the most valued reason for hiring a person. in any job, but especially in creative/entertainment industries.

    well that’s part of what superheroes were created for in the first place- to deal with (and soothe) public fears of perceived modern threats. superman was created to deal with a post industrial, post...
