Such heroic nonsense
Sep 20th 2019 at 2:31:33 AM

So you know how Doctor Doom is possibly a descendant of Rama-Tut aka Kang the Conqueror? Who is himself a descendant of Nathaniel Richards, aka Reed Richard's dad?

That means that Victor is related to Reed, being his nephew many generations removed.

I feel like Marvel's convoluted use of time travel is their answer to DC's convoluted use of alternate universes and continuity resets.

From what I understand, Kang's real name is Nathaniel Richards, but it's never been revealed if he's actually related to the other Nathaniel Richards.

For comparison, Invisible Woman and Web of Black Widow are comics about espionage. "Agents of Wakanda" is nothing of the sort: a gang of people with bizarre weapons? An horde of monsters? They could have named themselves "Wakandan Avengers".

Everything I've heard of Agents of Wakanda sounds like the supposed premise of the book took a back seat to the writer just wanting to play with the Marvel toybox.

[up]Speaking of Invisible Woman, I think she'd qualify as having won the superpower lottery after looking at her section in Semantic Superpower.

[up][up] Just because it isn't espionage by your definition, doesn't mean it isn't a book about super spies going on super spy missions. Hell, Chuck was entirely unrealistic in terms of espionage, but it's still a super cool spy series. So get over it.

You realize that "Chuck" is a parody, do you?

It was a comedy, but not a parody.

Get Smart was a parody.

With regards to Kang’s name being Nathaniel Richards, I feel like Byrne implied he was related by giving Kang’s origin a cameo at the end of an FF issue where they met Reed’s dad in the future and he had a newborn son with his new wife.

Yeah, Agents of Wakanda isn't out of the ordinary for Super Spy books.

And no, "Wakanda Avengers" wouldn't work, because they are an organization, not a set team.

Also, Read Absolute Carnage 3... I wonder how they'll explain why Immortal Hulk can't beat Carnage instantly.

Ironheart is ending with issue 12. It looks like it was always meant to end with 12 issues and Ewing isn't sad about it. She also says, "i am not going anywhere, and neither is Riri. we're shifting gears and we will be back. quite soon." So perhaps we'll be getting another Ironheart book or a team book written by Eve Ewing? I'd love to see her take on the Champions.

[up] EIC's tend to last ten or so years on average. Joe Quesada was EIC from 2000 to 2011, while Axel Alonso was EIC from 2011 to 2017. Tom DeFalco was EIC from 1987 to 1994, while Jim Shooter was EIC from 1978 to 1987.

And then there's Bob Harras, who was EIC for only five years, from 1995 to 2000, because people did not like him, mainly because it was during the bankruptcy years and he had to fire a lot of people. He also oversaw the Clone Saga and let it go on for far too long.

Then there was that weird experiment from 1994 to 1995 where there was no EIC and instead they had individual "group editors" for Mutants, Spider-Man, Universe (Avengers & Cosmic), Marvel Edge, and Epic. After a year, everyone pretty much agreed that this was a terrible idea, since if there was any clash between editors, there was nobody to go to as the EIC.

So Marvel just introduced a new female Thor.

And she's Luke Cage and Jessica Jones' daughter Dani. Making that two of the Avengers Trinity whose identities Dani has used in other continuities.
