Super proud of you guys for looking at this thing from every angle and posing to really valid arguments. I guess it boils down to the "superhero" is a throwback from a less evolved, less integrated time, comics fans are resistant to change, positive change on the part of the publishers almost ALWAYS comes across as a PR stunt even when it (rarely) isn't and changes that aren't well received lead to slow sales which leads straight back to the status quo. Comics are a weird animal.
My first Interneting was most likely using AIM at a friend's house during the summer between 8th and 9th grade. That was the first time I knew a kid with a dial up modem. I never had Internet access at my own house until I moved out on my own when I was 18. Even then, Im pretty sure I was borrowing a dial up connection that my buddy got free with his college tuition for at least 2-3 more years. My first email address was a hotmail (pre Microsoft) account created at the behest of my 10th grade photography teacher. He insisted that we all have email to get assignments then never once sent us anything electronically. I remember there being a 3 or 4 page form you have to fill out to get an email address. It seemed super official, like the IRS was involved.
It is a reference to how a dude asked me to draw a car riding Robocop, riding a unicorn.
I manage to make it to the theater about 6 times a year. I like seeing a movie when it's new, but I find the overall theater experience pretty dreadful. During Iron Man 3 a woman behind me was explaining the entire movie to her 10 year old THE ENTIRE TIME. She never stopped talking at a normal volume.
"My dad went to see Skyfall before me... that was 8 months ago. I may never speak to him again."
I guess that's different for me since when a movie is based on a book that everyone knows the ending to, I dont really consider it a spoiler.
Go to your room.
It's a permanent change. Glad you like it.
That. Is. Fucking. Bullshit.
