I Aten't Dead

Just resting. Big changes at Casa del Padnick (looking for a new job in publishing) and a HECK of a lot of travel took the blogging bug out of me for awhile, but I'll be back. Just you wait.

In the meantime, amuse yourself with some of my Marvel musings:

Has Fin Fang Foom ever fought Galactus? If not, why not?

When I started reading Civil War, I kind of wanted Millar to surprise me and show me that Captain America was in the wrong. But to quote a great man, "Not Like This! Like This!"

Aunt May's dead. Again. Was that really the best way to go with the whole unmasking storyline? Couldn't they have taken this opportunity to take Spider-Man somewhere actually new?

In honor of the second greatest cover of 2007, I'm trying to a write a song. So far I've got:

"His name was Ego:
He was a planet
With heart-shaped craters on his head
and a beard all filled with dread"

I'm trying to figure out why Spider-Man killing Mary-Jane with his "love" in Reign icks me out but a similar development near the end of Peter David's run on The Incredible Hulk I was fine with. Is it the fact that Kaare Andrews specifically locates the radiation to Peter Parker's erm, "fluids"?

Yeah, yeah it is.

NEXTWAVE: Agents of Atlas. Am I right, or am I right?

"Her name was Terra,
She was a Class-M,
And superheroes everywhere
Were fixed in Ego's lusty stare.
They looked across the sky
They did not want to die,
So to prevent this star-crossed romance, they would have to try!

In Avengers!
Marvel Adventures..."

There's some funky grammar in there, but I had to give it a shot.

What made it really icky was the "milions of spiders crawling inside her, killing her" line. I mean, it forces you to envision his sperm as spiders. Ewwwww.

Yes. Nextwave: Agents of Atlas would rule all.
