@kalorama: Hey so you might not get this message but I recently remembered this unfinished conversation from way back. Don't know why I'm typing this now but in hindsight, I feel you got a point saying the current Adam Strange look is a bit of a "hot mess". IDK maybe you could say distance makes the heart grow fonder but while I do think at times the "overdesign" complaint can be unnecessary here at least I can say the at times annoying iFanboy phrase "the costume has too many lines". I also think I prefer the mixing of red, black and white here to the mixing of red, yellow and white of the previous versions. As far as Hawkman goes, still prefer his Young Justice design. That's all.

@shinobi62676:

Maybe at some point Miles should call himself the Ultimate Spider-Man.

Really wish they stuck with the "Ultimate Spider-Man" title. Sure, it's not in the Ultimate Universe anymore, but it's a better title than just "Spider-Man" and better differentiates Miles' title from Peter's.

I think that if that book can exist without people being too confused Miles can keep the "Ultimate Spider-Man title.

I simply call him Black Spider-Man, because, you know, black suit)

Hey people, long time no post (for real), I really lost my desire to hang around this site after Tony left and the news story posts became, well, less than substantial, but in a weird way conversations like this never left my mind. I don't know why but I feel I still need to come full circle with some things.

So for this article we were broadly talking abut the weird naming shtick in these books. @slimebeherit you were right they don't call her Lady Thor in the books, not entirely sure what I was thinking when I wrote that, maybe it was because I felt fans (both lovers and haters) were using that designation so much it was okay? I don't know. Regardless I do get marketing wise why they went through with it. But yeah at the end of the day I was never under the idea of all the mantle passing as bad (even when it was sloppy) and I think we can both agree on the need to better differentiate with mantles even if it's just through adjectives.

Then again with you and @maddpanda531 and @bluejay2324 suggesting calling Miles "Ultimate Spider-Man", maybe not the best option, like that sounds like if Dick Grayson decided to become Batman again while Bruce is still Batman and so Dick is called "Better Batman" or something. Like there is a difference between calling the the 616 Ultimates "The Ultimates" and calling them "The Ultimate Avengers" nah mean? Regardless there's a new animated project and they're calling the Gwen Stacy Spider-Woman "Ghost-Spider" instead so hre's hoping that at least sets a better precedent going forward.

As for @rubear ... LOL

I don't know if any of you guys will ever see this and me doing writing this considering how much time has passed is super weird in general, but as I said before, there's some stuff I feel I need to come full circle with, thank you.

@jota23: I'm sorry, but dude that is a stretch. Like even if your're going by the logic of let's say, Injustice Superman is not Superman, he still kind of is. It's an alternative take. And I feel like certain aspects of the character remain enough to call him as such. But hey, agree to disagree.

@jota23: So would you also consider the original Old Man Logan story to also not be one of the best Wolverine stories ever because "Wolverine isn't actually in it"?

Unless you're just busting my balls here, in which case I don't have a funny a follow up.

I'm sure there's also something cynical about the idea of thinking something shouldn't exist just cause you don't like it.

Was this a dig at me? If so, what are you trying to say? That I'm supposed to like the idea of every comic that comes out at face value? Really?!

Reread the comments, and given the context, I don't think that was a dig at you, but more a confirmation of what you were saying and a dig at the person you were replying to. I think they're saying you don't have to like the idea of every comic that comes out, but to just say it shouldn't exist (when others could be enjoying it) because you don't like it.

Huh, maybe you're right. If so then I apologize.

Uh, did he get a growth spurt?! Cause the brother seems much taller than he was when ANAD Marvel started (like how my little brother got bigger then me when he became a teenager; we're like Mario and Luigi). Anywho, how do I feel about 16 year old Miles + 19 year old Spider-Gwen? Not sure yet.

@scouterv: Yeah, Blade was a short while back, but I don't think anyone is using it now.

@stahlflamme: Whelp you got me there (though I still feel like it's up for interpretation). Do you recommend the Jim McCann run?
