YMMV / Shade, the Changing Man

  • Downer Ending: The intended finale which closed on the death of a main character and a handful of Ensemble Darkhorses, bitter alienation from another main character, and the loss of Shade's child.
  • Esoteric Happy Ending: The true finale, which ends on George/Lily smiling up at the stars, but on reflection he doesn't have much to be optimistic about.
  • My Real Daddy: Milligan. Hardly anyone remembers much about Ditko's version, except that it had very little to do with Milligan's take.
  • Nightmare Fuel: An intimate encounter gets a bit freaky as demonstrated in this panel from issue 28.
