    agreeing with most of what old school and pav have said here. though i'll add that PAD's ability to explore psyche is up there with JMD.

    i think weíve already had this discussion here a month or two back and it was reasonably established that the spider-titles are not a guaranteed top seller. itís a bit of an insult to both the...

    people have an amazing ability to only pick up on the information that they WANT to see, hear and read. call it confirmation bias or just bias.

    not quite. not being successful/popular enough earns you a death or depowered and then replaced (either by a new character or a new version of yourself ala deaths head II). the redundancy is a result...

    the writer in me agrees with zeitgeist. from a purist perspective there’s not just a dilution of the concept but almost a perversion and a point of ridicule with so many variations on the theme...

    it all seems to have been fairly organic (as organic as it gets in commercial mainstream superhero comics) and the fanbase has supported it.

    depends on what kind of “own” we mean here- technically the writer (unless he’s managed an exceptional deal) doesn’t own anything either. owning an interpretation is open and valid across the board,...

    is it expostion of discussion? there's a difference.

    while i actually love well written talking heads, i think there’s a market for a cleverly written 616 vs ultimate fight book. nothing but biff the whole way through, with practically no dialogue....
  14. while i’m inclined to agree with the writer here-...

    while i’m inclined to agree with the writer here- he is clinging to “that’s how i created him” a bit much. retcons exist. reinterpretations exist. mix ups exist.

    he can’t own deadpool any more...

    isn’t this the bit in the thread where someone posts up their personal misinterpretation of ‘death of the author’ ?

    well, you two seem to have a thing. i don't know much about message board rules, all i know is i prefer a natural flow but i can understand why the rules exist. i think you're probably more...

    i’m missing how he changed the subject- mets seemed to posit a reasoning that could be backed up. isn’t that just conversation and debate?

    also the lowe quote can be interpreted in the way you...

    by that reasoning there might be a precedent for leprechaun laying siege to marvel offices and demanding a change in creative teams before wiping everyone’s memories- because we never hear of it.
