@blue_son: because people have a problem with a female having the name Iron Man because of the word "man" on it. When man can go for both man or woman.

No.

Woman is derived from the word man. Just like human is.

Don't go all gender fluidity on us.

Nah. "Human" in English comes from Norman (French) humain, which in turn comes from Latin humanus, which in turns comes from homo, meaning "member of the human race", not "male". Vir Latin for "man". The fact that "human" has "-man" as part of it is a happy coincidence, not an etymological reason.

As for "woman", the etymology isn't really correct either, since man in Old English more commonly meant "person" rather than "male". Wifmann meant "female person", not "wife of man" or anything of that sort.

Try again, I guess?

@nerevarine_11: Clearly a troll, most of the people hating this is because racism.

I have idea for you, little skeleton.

Go get upset about such english words as "human" and "woman" - derivates from word man.

And while you'll be upset compare it with russian language. "Human" - "Человек", "man" - "мужчина", derivate from "муж" ("husband"), "woman" - "женщина", derivate from "жена" ("wife"). Neither of words that have same meaning as your "human", "woman" and "man" are derivates from each other in russian.

That is a false etymology. "Human" and "man" are not English words, but Latin: humanus. And since vir, viri is Latin for "man"... Well, your feeble attempt at justifying your hatred for everything that deviates from your little, pre-defined conception of the world miserably fails.

Can Peter get somewhere on time? Just once? Like, let him have his family day and not appear to be a disappointment and let him come out to world War 3. It's not that I don't get it, but this has been going on for his entirety.

How else is he going to hide his secret identity as The Flash? It's all a distraction! A ruse!

Given the fact that Jennifer was "hulked-out" almost 24/7, I'm finding it really hard to believe that suddenly she's got such a powerful inner demon like her cousin had. Yeah, sure, she's been dealt a pretty bad hand recently... but nothing out of the ordinary in her line of work.

Wait. She-Hulk is on Captain Marvel's side, even though her actions led to Bruce Banner's death?

Man, Rebirth is awesome.

I'll wait for Avengers vs. Deadpool Mercs, X-Men vs. Heroes for Hire or X-Babies vs. A Stan Lee Cameo from a 1970's Issue.
