I offended Dan Slott!

He replied in the comments.

TL;DR version, I spend an inordinate amount of time reviewing a book Dan Slott did not write by bitching about Dan Slott having turned Black Cat heel a few years ago because that move always seemed WILDLY out of character for me. He replied in the comments, and was actually pretty cordial. And then I sucked up in return because I am both polite AND spineless (while also standing by my original assessment).

Turning Black Cat heel is a bad idea, though.  She's one of the few villains out there that is more interesting as a hero.

Super cool regardless!

I agree with your assessment  but Daniel Slott is a great writer nonetheless.

The black cat thing is the only part of his run I had a problem so I'm happy to find out that wasn't how he was going to leave it

That site has comments? All I can find is every ad in the universe on one page.

Turning an ad blocker OFF to go to a site doesn't even make sense.

(but yeah, 411mania is fucking abhorrent with ads; I hate going there on my phone or my work computer)

It's actually gotten BETTER recently because at least it quit redirecting my phone browser to OMG GIFT CARD YOU WIN websites.

Yeah, I was hoping that would let me see the comment section. My ad blocker was filtering it out as spam.

I liked his response.  And her betrayal by who she thought was Pete is definitely a big factor considering their long established history.

I gotta side with Slott on this one. Yeah, we've had heroic Black Cat but she does have a history of suddenly turning heel and just screwing Spider-Man over because--well, she was kinda nuts. I can at least see where his ideas come from and--seriously, it wasn't like The Black Cat was doing anything or relevant.

Now you do have people talking about her and you did have her being in a ton of books, so it worked out for the best.

Slott bugged me for most of the time that he was at Marvel (well maybe he still is? *shrugs*), but his Silver Surfer run was one of the last things Marvel put out that I consistently enjoyed, so...I guess we're good. Just as long as I don't have to read any Hank Pym, Scientist Supreme nonsense.
