Legion of Super-Heroes: 5 Years Later can suck my ass for all time. HIDEOUS rubber-faced art, stupid-looking characters, everyone's dressed in garbage-bags, and it's endlessly bleak stupidity. Giffen was just fucking around, and it destroyed the LOSH for years- they had to reboot continuity to fix what he'd fucked up, and that left the Legion constantly struggling under "this isn't the REAL Legion" for the rest of their history.

Now THAT's a hell of an influential wrestler- he and Tiger Mask more or less invented the Junior/Cruiserweight style by themselves.

Hey, Anvil remarried his wife and was married to her at the time of his death, so obviously that was either a lie, or SHE forgave him :).

Plus, it was Diana Hart's book, wasn't it? That whole thing was a steaming bowl.

Neidhart & Bret crack wise about the Bulldogs' new "bitch" of a manager: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uM4VMx-jTP4 (haha, Nervous Young Bret promos are always cringy)

It's the type of comic that gives me the feeling Matt Rosenberg lurks here.

I also like the explanation for why Madrox is still alive. It's not a copout and actually fuels the overall storyline. I have a feeling this is going to be a clever and fun run. Wish the art was better.
Like there's any hero on Earth easier to resurrect than THE FUCKING MULTIPLE MAN.

..he clearly shittted on Wakandan culture to inject Western degeneracy into the mythos.
But... but I've heard MRAs whine that he's a black supremacist who carries on an anti-white story! WHICH MORALLY-ABHORRENT CRACKPOT DO I BELIEVE, NOW!?!?!?

Steranko looks HILARIOUS in person- ultra-tanned, finely-coiffed, but all of five-foot-two. He looks like a Mafiosi that shrunk in the wash.

It's sad that Ditko wasn't found for 2 days. The idea that someone who had an influence on the world could be ignored for that long bothers me.
Sadly not that uncommon for people who live alone, and not in Retirement Communities. Given how antisocial he was, I'm honestly surprised it wasn't longer- usually, it's the smell that tips people off in these cases.

One of the last of his generation- I think Stan Lee might be the only major comic book star of the '60s still kicking. I suppose there's Steranko, Neal Adams and a few others who came along later in the decade.

Ditko was a true original- famously-shy, even in his creative prime (he refused to answer fan letters, and they joke about it in the "Mighty Marvel Marching Society" record they sent out to their fans), obsessive about what he saw as proper morality, and with a very specific take on Spider-Man. As soon as he was gone, you saw a HUGE creative shift in the book, as it became a "College Drama" with a very different feel to it- a sure sign of his creative input. And Doctor Strange was never the same again- nobody else has come close to Ditko's level on that one.

This one's really fucked up. Dude basically had his career kneecapped early on by brain cancer... then dies from it ten years later? With a HUGE gap in the middle? Cancer is fucking weird.

Daria was so era-specific. I dunno if the same thing would work today. Okay, so "girls like shitty guys as long as they're in bands" and "High School sucks" are omnipresent tropes in real life, but still.

But seriously, why did Kitty reject him at the last second?

Curse you, Gambit! That was Deadpool's girl!!


But yeah, it's kind cheap to promise the fans something and don't deliver.
She was actually getting with the Torch in that Avengers book, too. EVERY new writer of books tries to form their own Random Coupling these days.

And, he’s been future endeavored. 

Carmella better watch her back.
Dude, they didn't even future endeavor him! They actually DIDN'T WISH HIM THE BEST IN HIS FUTURE ENDEAVORS. Now THAT is cold!
