@Timandm: ya, but characters like rulk & she-rulk haven't been around very long & get way more attention than amadeus. i wish amadeus got as much spotlight as the young avengers or someone like that. i think he could be the next best thing in the MU.

True, but I don't think it's because fans want to see so much of them... Red Hulk, honestly, he's just boring. So, he's incredibly strong... We've seen that for decades. I suspect the writers THOUGHT Red Hulk would be popular... He's not... But, yes, he's getting a lot of on panel time... Red She-Hulk, so far she's just psychotic... I don't really see a personality there. Just a woman who's pissed off...

I think Amadeus is still around because we, the fans, like him... If a character is interesting, people will want more of them... I believe, I HOPE, Amadeus gets noticed like he should...

@fodigg: Is Wally gone?

Currently, yes. He's not Flash, he's not Kid Flash, and he's not mentioned anywhere. It sure seems like an editorial mandate to phase him out. At least, to me it does.

So, he's just NOT FREAKING THERE?!?!!? Sigh.. THAT'S just wrong, man... it's just wrong...

Is it just me? I'm a huge Spider-Man fan... I've read just about everything Spider-man...

But Spider-Island is just....boring. Maybe 'not interesting' is a nicer way to say it... Maybe, it's just that every time Marvel brings back those FREAKING Peter Parker clones my eyes just start to glaze over... And it's not that clones can't make an interesting story line, they can, it's just that Marvel can't make an interesting story line about Clones.... And EVEN IF THEY DID, they'd just retcon it over and over and over and OVER again...

BEN: Hi, I'm Ben Riley. I'm your clone.

PETE: Okay...

BEN: Um.. I know I said " I " was the clone, but really YOU'RE the clone. So, Pete, why don't you leave and I'll just take over from now on.

PETE: Okay...

BEN: Okay, okay, okay. So, maybe I AM the clone, Pete. and. Wait... I"m confused. Didn't one or both of us die or something.

ENTERS KAINE

KAINE: NO! Neither of you are Spider-Man. I AM. And my name is Kaine. So.. okay wait.. um... Wait, did I say I was Spider-Man? Oh, frig it, let's just kill each other... or, maybe one or two of us will die and the winner gets to keep being Spider-Man.

BEN: Yeah, that sounds good! And, the ones of us that die will just come back over and over again in those god-awful retcons that will just change everything that was done before so that everyone will be more confused than ever before...

PETE: But wait. You guys are going to be "good guys" if you win right?

Kaine exchanges an "are you freaking kidding me look with Ben"

KAINE: Um... (snickers) "Sure. I mean of course!"

BEN: Kewl with me, as long as I get to sleep with M.J.

PETE: Oh, funny story that... See, we're... I mean ' I'M ' not married to her anymore...

KAINE and BEN: You divorced a super gorgeous, spirited, firey, HOT super model who loves you???

PETE: No. I...See, Aunt May was dying so I sold my soul to keep her alive... Part of the deal was that things would be retconned so that M.J. and I were never married.

Kaine and Ben exchange another "are you freaking kidding me look"

KAINE AND BEN: WTF?!

PETE: It was the only way!

KAINE: Not to sound callous but, isn't Aunt May about as old as Moses?

BEN: Yeah, and didn't she give a rash of *$&$ for destroying your's and M.J.'s life to keep her alive when about the only person from her generation that is still alive other than her is Captain America?

KAINE: And Wolverine.

BEN: Yeah, and Wolverine...

Okay, I'm digressing..... So, Spider-Island. It's just not interesting... And, if the writers stay true to form, NOTHING significant will come from it. Everyone will just sort of forget it happened. Kind of like when every super hero turned into the Hulk...

SOOOO, not interesting...

Hopefully it will be Carlie and she dies shortly after, can't stand her.

You know, back before Carlie and Peter were an item, she was an interesting character. Many of us WANTED the two of them to get together... But once they got together, it's like someone else started writing the character... She's sooooo.. not interesting... But I don't want her to die... Maybe just get amnesia, forget the past few months of her life, and have no feelings for Parker...

Then we can get Peter and M.J. back together...

As for who he tells about his identity... Seems like Carlie has already figured it out.. So, shortly after that she'll get hit on the head and voila... Problem solved.

do you know any other character except cable deadpool and woolverine to have their own issue which are related to the xmen storyline?

There've been several minis for various characters: Gambit, Rogue, Jubilee, Psylocke, Nightcrawler, Storm, Shadowcat, Dazzler, Iceman....I'm sure there are more. None have stood the test of time like Wolverine though. Apparently he can be shoved down every orifice of everybody's body on this entire planet every millisecond of every day for the rest of our lives and people will still ask for more of the little furball.

They may actually be his true mutant power...

Why is Magneto wearing a bra?

He's always worn a bra, it's just that now he's decided to wear it on the OUTSIDE... Like Madonna...

@council elite: I like Amadeus Cho. His potential in the Marvel universe is unlimited really... But I don't think he's under rated. He just hasn't been around all that long. He's already been a main character in a series, "The Incredible Hercules".. I think He was as important in the story line as Hercules. And it was a GREAT series. I hated to see it end...

He's now the Prince of Power, and it appears that Marvel is trying to start a new series in which he leads a team of Superheroes... Amadeus Cho, Spider-girl, X-23, Thunderstrike, and Powerman (the young one.)

@Timandm: Eh...Heath Ledger made an excellent villain...he didn't make a very good Joker though.

The only Joker-ish performance in the entire film was the hospital scene.

As for this costume...why are they going with the 60s look, when Catwoman's new costume suits the Nolan-verse so much more?

How in the hell did they manage to screw up both Bane AND Catwoman, who are two of the ONLY Batman villains who had "real world" costumes to begin with?!

I think he portrayed the Joker as presented in "The Dark Knight" by Frank Miller (The book not the movie) and "The Killing Joke." A criminal who is a genius AND insane...

As to why they went with the, we'll say 'classic', Catwoman costume? I'm just guessing, but they had to put Anne Hathaway in something that made her sexy... I'm guessing that was the best they can do... I would like to have seen the newer costume used as well...

That's a hard one...

1: Vulcan wasn't exactly stable. The perpetrator being insane, makes it hard to say whether it's evil or just insanity.

2: The Shiar Empire had a hand in making Vulcan insane. The Shiar kidnapped Vulcan's parents, killed his mother, orphaned all three of the Summers boys (they thought their parents were dead), and tortured Vulcan when he was a boy.

3: The Shiar empire was constantly conquering civilizations and imprisoning them against their will, which could be considered evil...

Soooooooooooo...

I give it 7.0 on the evil scale...

NEXT: IRON MAN ADMITS HE IMPRISONS PEOPLE IN THE NEGATIVE ZONE BECAUSE IT IS OUTSIDE THE JURISDICTION OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT AND HE CAN DO WHATEVER HE WANTS TO THE PRISONERS.

@hrdwrkngXsoldier: So, you did a senior paper or dissertation on "American comics and the relationship they share with the political history and progression of the United States" ?

Well, I would actually read the whole thing. Do you have it in a pdf or word document form?
