To me Cap and Steve Rogers are synonymous, much like Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne with their respective alter egos. I don't want to see anyone else taking over the roles on a permanent basis. Other heroes like Flash, Green Lantern, Blue Beetle etc. can be replaced, but not Cap, Bats or Supes. You mus...

I normally don't read spoilers. I always prefer to read the story in the book/comic/movie. But this was so bad I read them just so I can avoid the last two issues of this storyline. A shame really. There were some really good story elements early on, but to reset everything to way it was 20 years ag...

Dr. Solar touched on it, but the reason Wizard is evil is because they take insider info and use it to make money by bilking unsuspecting comic buyers with 'hot' comics. The Death of Cap story is a prime example. They very day the book hit the shelves Wizard had hundreds for sale on ebay. Some of th...

WWIII seemed to get universal thumbs down from folks. I disagree. I liked it, but it did have issues. There were a few things that were out of place characterwise. Some things were shoe horned in to fit. I will say that WWIII may not fit well in the context of 52. It was designed to explain what hap...

It would have been the last issue in the Lee/Kirby run (108?). Stan and Jack had a falling out. Apparently Stan wasn't happy about what Jack had pencilled and wanted it redone. Jack quit in protest. Nearly the entire issue had been pencilled. Those pages were subsequently cut up (the actual boards) ...
