    i don't think clones are any more disposable than run of the mill superhero characters. they're all disposable and all recyclable

    thing is, if it is ben, then there needs to be a pretty good reason as to why he would do this. while he and peter have grown to become different interpretations of the same man...he's no more likely...

    i have nothing against civl war II, but i generally like the point you make. guys like captain america are usually depicted as the last man standing in doomsday scenarios, though i think it would be...

    yeah, there's nothing in the 90s saga to indicate that the jackal ever really struggled with the abuse he heaped on his "family". though i do think that might be the more interesting route to take...

    i'm reasonably unbiased regarding dan slott himself, though maybe i have a bit of professional bias through my own experience and career.

    really, nobody has any business being crap to another...

    i like that. good reminder not not to be too literal.

    yep. perfect summarisation. i think it's something JMD aimed for in his work on the main books and the ben reilly minis. and i personally think that's the realm where the character clicks.

    i don't think people caught in cycles of abuse is necessarily dumb or desperate. people (and hopefully characters) are more complex than that.

    yeah, i agree that either can work. all comes down to the execution.

    though, i don't think a revelation always needs clues or pieces to line up- sometimes it's just the peeling back of an onion...

    i don't know if they went so far as to say "peter sucks". they gave him a hell of a lot of problems, but by the end of the saga he had bounced back from them. he had a pretty respectful send off when...

    it's a little more complicated than that for kaine- the jackal represented a disapproving father figure. it's possible that's not totally resolved for him.

    this.

    the marvel comics universe was written at a time when it was the norm to present a universe largely dominated by white male characters and it's hard to fault that. what's happening now...

    yeah, the different approaches i'd say are as numerous as different types of stories. an identity reveal in a sherlock holmes story is different to one in star wars because the genres have different...

    absolutely agree. sometimes a writer handles the mystery poorly in the ways you describe. i think it also depends on the type of reveal- is it a mystery that seeded clues to allow it to be solved by...

    this is where the continuity of clone degeneration is an issue. i'm in the camp that believes that they don't degenerate after death (i mean why would they?) but only if they live long enough for...

    there's something to be said for taking a story at face value rather than trying to "beat it". for instance, i'm not actively trying to figure out westworld before the plot is ready to reveal itself...

    fair point but it's just weird for him to decide to wear a mask to hide his identity especially with all the warren dupes around in plain sight.

    from memory, kaine showed a fair bit of scientific aptitude in the "redemption" mini. whether that was due to being peter's clone or something he learned from the jackal i'm not sure

    i'm not sure a trans person would identify or empathise with the character. from what i know, she'd fit into some other, new (though somewhat related) category specific to superhero comics. which is...
