    In the Spider-Man comic book, Spider-Man's radioactive semen kills Mary Jane

    Wow. Just wow. That being said, we might want to modify the thread title just a tad for work purposes.

    So when his Spidey Sense is tingling, is that just his cancer jizz firing up?

    so long to the willing suspension of disbelief. Seriously though, if the dude was turned wacky by a spider bite, it stands to reason his essence would glow green. But hey, at least Mary Jane went with a smile on her face, right?? :)

    Didn't he and Mary Jane get married ages ago? Why is he just now figuring out his sperm is radioactive?

    It appears to be a slow buildup. Not like one stream killed her.
     
  9. You know, 10 or so years ago I thought the conversation in "Mallrats" -- about whether Superman needed to use a Kryptonite condom to have sex with Louis Lane -- was just a funny parody about comic book geeks (and I was one in high school). Is parody now becoming reality? When did killing off Robin or having the Joker put someone in a wheelchair stop being controversial enough for comics?

    Either I've just really dated myself and, on the comic geek scale, I'm just an old fart who doesn't understand the modern culture, or there are some writers out there who really need to start dating.

    Comic books are tearing apart the moral fiber of this country and should be banned.

    Amazingly, comic books were actually aimed (at least moreso) towards kids 20 years ago and were actually better written, had better art and weren't the flailing piece of crap they are today.
     
  12. I still hold a passing interest in comics, and have often thought about picking up the latest issues of the books I used to read. But I haven't seen anything that approaches the level of "The Dark Knight Returns" or "The Watchmen" -- books that actually drew the label of "literature" and greatly increased the comic medium's level of credibility. Instead, graphic novels are common occurrences and are no longer special must-reads, and most of the industry (Marvel in particular) seems like one gigantic parody of itself.

    Again, I'm probably just older and out-of-touch. But I haven't seen anything in 10 years that has driven me want to pick up a comic and rediscover the excitement and fantasies that once drew me to them.
