Make Mine Marvel in 2009!

Passing another Marvel era. We have the ability to blog about random schtick and actually get away with it nowadays. That being said, I would like to take this time to thank each and EVERY one of the editors/contributors/viewers/staff - EVERYONE for making a site and medium that we can do this.

This 2009 will be a year of extreme growth and wealth of knowledge for the site. Now that some of us have gotten our bots working again on the site, things will change dramatically and we can move forward on a lot of the projects that were put on the back-burner for some time. This means that Peteparker doesn't have to take the brunt of the work 'round here. It also means that you (anyone with the ability to read this) need to share your thoughts/ran…

Continuity!!! Marvel, why have you forsaken me?!? - Rant

Okay, I have always been one of those people to give someone the benefit of the doubt. Once, twice, even three times. It seems, however, that Marvel has created an epidemic of gigantic proportions and unleashed it upon those of us willing to shell out a few bucks (or hundreds) a month to catch up on the new happenings of our favorite books. This seemingly unstoppable plague is none other than a lack of continuity of storylines.

I somewhat expect that a character that I read in one story will at least "appear" to be the same character in another book. This makes it VERY difficult for one to distinguish that the person they are reading about is that same character they know and love. It seems that Marvel has taken a lot of us for mindless rea…

Epic Fail.

So over at Marvel's website, one of the free-for-all comics is Thor #337. Yay, I thought, this is perfect to show my friends who missed out on the Photobucket spree from 2 years ago!

But then I looked at it.

And I felt RAGE take over.

Seriously, whoever colors these things needs to either have a good lesson in HOW TO PROPERLY COLOR CHARACTERS or be slapped silly. Everything's too bright and overuse of magenta and purple. I likes me some purples and magentas, but that's overdoing it. And some spots are too pastel-y.

And then I saw this eyesore:

WHAT THE HELL IS THAT. It's all WRONG.

Oh, OH and a few pages later...

Dammit Marvel,…

But seriously...

Having gotten a bit of fun out of the way, I figure I may as well make an "introduction" in earnest, since I just kinda snuck my way on here.

I've actually been into comics since 2006. Before that, it was mostly on/off passing knowledge of Marvel stuff in general, due in part to my love of the 90's X-Men cartoon (which doesn't hold up well over time, unsurprisingly enough) and my zealous fannishness of anything Jean Grey related. I never really liked DC outside of their cartoons, but that's neither here nor there.

To make a long story short, I came across a picture of a Beta Ray Bill action figure in a magazine one day and thought he looked cool enough to draw. I didn't know who he was or anything like that, so I did some internet research t…

Old Man Logan: I'll be an old man by the time they finish this story

How long do we have to wait for more Old Man Logan awesomeness?

Anyone else feel like actually building the Spider-Buggy now? I've seen a few Batmobiles here and there, but never have seen an actual Spider-Mobile. Granted, it's a bit ugly, but I'm sure the ladies would dig the feel. It was created in the 70's, after all.

I do love Spider-Bitch. How can you not love that name?

Two months between books is nuts, and an Earth Designation wouldn't kill those guys either.

New blog feature

Hi guys -- we just launched a brand-new feature called blogs, and we voted to try it out on this wiki on the forums!

Blogs are a new type of article with a single author -- it's a way to express yourself on the wiki without worrying that other people will edit what you write. You can use blogs to write opinions, fan fiction, community announcements, top 10 lists, questions -- anything that you want to write, but that wouldn't fit on a regular wiki article.

Admins can edit or delete blog posts and comments, so you can still guard against vandalism and make sure that everybody is using blogs the way that the community wants.

You can add blog posts to the regular categories that exist on the wiki, or create new categories for them. I'm going to …
