I blame Bendis.
I blame society.
That's also a valid option.
Yeah, society sucks.
I blame Mephisto because it all comes back to him ruining marriages somehow.
I blame Ike Perlmutter
Iíve read the first volume of the new Avengers run
Itís pretty enjoyable
And then she just gets amnesia off-panel so she can remember them again and flip out again.
Nothing about Avengers Disassembled was good.
It took me a while to go dig through comics to find the Mephisto babies storyline. It took me a while to find out that storyline existed.
So House of M and Disassembled were dumb, but the not Magneto's children made those storylines dumber and then Perlmutter mutant spite and
Joe Quesada, you. are. a. hack!
Ike Perlmutter, ditto.
This raises even more questions. Like what are Wiccan and Speed. That is a serious question: what are those twins? What about their powers?

They are retroactive soul babies of Wanda and... youíd think Vision but I see speed powers and not density powers
That part I can excuse because the x-gene has never made scientific sense in the slightest. If it did, all mutants would have the same powers.
Iíll not excuse it
It doesnít have to make sense but instead of giving a retroactive soul baby some sweet synthezoid powers, they just make a copy paste of Quicksilver
Think they made that with the jokes about the Pietro/Wanda relationship or the Ultimate versions in mind?
God I hope not
What is there to explain? A kid does not have 100% of the DNA of his parents, but from several members of his family tree. In the case of Speed and Quicksilver, Quicksilver is not a direct ancestor of Speed, but Magneto and Magda (or whoever are the new parents) are ancestors of both of them.
Thatís more logic than retroactive soul babies have considering that they donít share DNA actually
Because retroactive soul babies

Dammit Wanda/Franklin/Kobik, you broke science again!
They're magic babies, so their power intertance should be thematic rather than logical. Like, there's no reason one of them couldn't take after their great grandfather and be able to turn into ants, even if there's absolutely no genetic link between them and Hank Pym.
Ir even one of them could burst into flames because The Original Human torch is one of Vision's three daddies.
For some reason my mind automatically thinks Frankie Raye from that description involving Human Torch.
Shuri has her own comic, and in the end of the first issue a women conclave offers her to be Black Panther again.
Setting things up for the Avengers 4 film, perhaps?
So in my Marvel read-through, I HAVE FINISHED THE '90s! Wow, what a weird decade. Seriously, it was a wild time for Marvel. A few fantastic highs (Generation X, Thunderbolts, Busiek/Perez Avengers, Quasar, Slingers, New Warriors, and plenty more great shit), a lot of horrendous lows (pretty sure I don't need to go into detail). Plenty of stuff that was, you know, OK, it existed. The rise of Liefeldian art early in the decade led to some comics that were definite eyesores, but there were loads of amazing artists throughout the decade, too. The decade basically created the Strong Female Protagonist archetype that gets so justly mocked, but there were still a good number of genuinely well-handled female characters.
It was a decade that drowned in excess, but there were still quite a few pearls to be found. And even in the excess, sometimes, there was a charm to it, as with X-Force (especially after Liefeld left).
Still, glad to be done with the '90s. It was a ride, and now I can move on from it. Into the 2000s!
Iíve been reading Thunderbolts recently. Itís really good
If you had to suffer through Fantastic Four and Fantastic Force, then I'm really sorry for you.
'90s Fantastic Four was a lot of mediocrity, yeah. And Fantastic Force was not a good comic at all. I'm currently reading Claremont's Fantastic Four. It is, uh, not great, either. Very Claremontian. Which means a lot of overwrought prose, women with irritatingly similar voices (Claremont has a very limited template of female characters he writes, he gets so much credit for his strong characterization of women but so fucking many of them have the same fucking voice and it's distracting and annoying), and underwhelming villains.
It's downright painful at times.
I know a lot of people tend to sneer at 90's comics but they have their own unique charm
I haven't read much in the way of 90s comics but I figure its the same with every decade.
The 90s had good comics and bad comics. Same as any other decade.
