@peppeyhare: I agree that comics, foremost, are about story conveyed through art and words. It shouldn't matter what issue number is on the front. Do you feel, then, that the frequent renumbering does not distract from the content of the title?
Also, an aside: I read elsewhere that you give your free digital copy to friends. VERY COOL.
@omgomgwtfwtf: If this happens, I think that the original reason for wanting him humiliated and broken would be even more valid than before. Imagine being a woman trying to prove herself in a male-dominated scientific field, and then some asshat corrects you, "Um, you need to move a decimal here." You disregard his advice, and catastrophe happens. Poof! You look like the protagonist in Palahniuk's Invisible Monsters. I can hear the dialogue now: "Von Doom says women can do science, too! Cursed Richards and his infernal penis!" Hmm. Okay, maybe I was rash in bad-mouthing this idea. I'm starting to sell myself on it.
@tifalockhart: Asian Hogun and black Heimdal were easily explained as being native to different realms of Asgard. I had no problem there. Dr. Doom with a vagina, though, would be like a pit of cobras having feet; no good can come of it. Just evil.
Juggernaut wins. C'mon, Amazing 229-230 was a one-sided fight, and Spidey won it by the good graces of the Comics Code Authority. Villains have become way more vicious since then, and so have the writers. Spider-Man will go down like a 6-year old challenging Mike Tyson.
@laflux: Speaking of jokes in poor taste, does Jerry Lawler have more stroke in the industry than Jeff Jarrett? (Yeah, yeah, that was a jerkstore thing to say, but c'mon, I'm sure all of his ex-wives were thinking it.)
