Howdy G-Man and the World's Greatest Tag Team.

I apologize for this lengthy post.

The first 2 comics I got when I was 4 Years old was X-Men and Captain America and since, I have always been a huge fanboy of Scott Summers and Steve Rogers. I also love dry white toast and vanilla ice cream...notice a pattern? With the newest issue of Cap, something very massive has happened. I am not one for quick emotional reactions but for the first time since reading comics as a adult, I am now having difficulty doing so. Superior Foes is one of my top 10 favorite books ever so I have enormous faith in Nick Spencer, but boy this is heavy. My question is, "Is nothing sacred?" Should a character's history be changed to such a point to where they are not even the same character? If so, then why not use a diferent character? Old Man Logan is geat example of keeping the original caharcter intact, but also telling geat stories that you could not otherwise with the original. I know its WAY early to judge this story, but I can not help but feel the truth is what it appears. All the Captain America merchandise I have throughout my home now fills me with grief.

Howdy Inferior Ego and Undeadpool,

Do you guys feel at all that The Miz's gimmick is at all treading on Tyler Breeze's. While The Miz does a very good job with it, I cant help but feel its too simple to Breeze's, especially the "no hitting me in the face", which Tyler has mysteriously dropped since Miz has returned. Im worried when Tyler finally makes his main roster debut that he will get lost in the shuffle and seen as "Miz Lite" by non-NXT followers.

Stay Gorgeous.

Howdy Inferior Ego and Undeadpool , two quick questions:

Who is your favorite announce team? While I love Gorilla and Heenan, Gorilla and Jesse to me had the perfect blend of legit sportcasters and charismatic entertainers. Jesse getting completely irate over Hogan's flagrant rule breaking always cracks me up.

Also, what do you think of Bo Dallas' finisher? I would love him to have a submission finish where he would encourage his opponent "Don't give up, Keep Bo-Lieving"

People take time to spread on their negativity on as thick as possible in a attempt to persuaded someone they don't even know instead of spending that time to read more comics. Who is the real loser here?

The logic of "A sale for Superior Spider-Man = A sale stolen from Scarlet Spider" is just so moronic.

why are new jumping on points so taboo with everyone? if you're already reading the series its more of what you love, and if you been reading the trades its a opportunity to start collecting monthly. i don't get it.

Man, does DC go out of their way to try and upset their fans? Its happening far too often to be coincidental.

@theacidskull: Made sense to me. Thor is a character who has a great deal of honor and going against Jane's wishes would have been pretty disrespectful.
