The boss already tried to read Otto the riot act for being a prick when DocOck unveiled billions of dollars in new patents for Horizon whereafter he was allowed cart blanch to be an even bigger prick.

So then...not perpetual loser...other than getting mindjacked by his archnemesis? And that happens. Hell, Kitty Pryde got taken over by Baron Karza once...

Mutant Terrorist who has used the phrase "Uncle Doom" on numerous occasions.

She didn't need much any help.

Kitty? A terrorist? Careful how you talk about the heroine formerly known as Shadowcat, flatscan.

I don't think Guy was talking about Kitty...I think. I don't ever recall Kitty calling Doom "Uncle Doom". That's Val.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Go Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back to the Mutant Massacre.

Kitty was trapped in ghost form.

Stuck, but fortunately not starving to death.

(Which would have been funny)

Cue the Fantastic Four vs. Avengers Miniseries when the X-Men hand over Kitty to Reed Richards in the hopes that he can fix her. He can't. Reed is stumped. So he rings up Doom transatlantically and asks for a solid, who can't help but seize the opportunity to prove that his intellect is so much more massive than the so called Mr. Fantastic.

(Seriously? I hear people call Sue "Mrs Fantastic" more often than anyone ever calls Richards: Mr Fantastic.)

Doom and Kitty developed a relationship.

Doctor/Patient... Friends?

Whatever.

Doom cured her and that put a soft spot in her heart for him.

In recovery, the X-Men die (fall of the Mutants) and she goes to live in England with Excalibur.

Cue Excalibur 37 or 38, where Doom tries to conquer Limbo, but before he does the back stabbing scorpion thing, Kitty lets him into their Lighthouse homebase past security and gives the despot a big hug calling him "Uncle Doom".

Some asshole saves your life, and it generates a peachy blindspot.

In season two of House, (a blond) Leighton Meister from Gossip Girl (The Brunette with the Jackie O fetish.) gets a wiggy psychological disease that makes her super horny whereafter the 15 year old child offers her virginity(?) to House... I thought that was hilarious and water under the bridge, but yesterday I saw a movie called "The Oranges" where a 29 year old Meister is reverseMrs-Robinsonning Hugh Laurie during a series of passionate and intimate PDAs, some seduction secens and at least one sex scene where you don't see anything.

Lots of tongue.

If there's a psychological situation (transference?) where a patient can't help but develop loving feelings for their Doctor, is Blair Waldorf and Greg House any more less likely a hook up than Victor Von Doom and Kitty Pryde bonding platonically?

Now in your head all you're thinking is "Hugh Laurie as Doctor Doom? Wow. That'd be so cool. How do I make that happen?"

I'd forgotten about that...it's been a long time since I've read Mutant Massacre.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I know the discussion is going to turn to this weeks books any post now but just wanted to say I took the threads advice and got GOTG #.01 and it was indeed a great story told in one issue as promised. I'm of course curious how Tony/IM is going to be in space and in Avengers tales but I'm guessing it may be just for an arc.

At any rate it was as solid as promised. With Punisher War Zone gone, which I was going to consider my pulls thinned out after that, I'm replacing it with GOTG now for at least the first arc. I do miss my Vance Astro team though.

Oh and while this is considerably overdue, but thinking about it I so f@#king called it with Superior Spider-Man, i.e. the Peter Parker sort of dying thing.
You called that one of the most iconic heroes ever wasn't going to really be dead?
No I called the seemingly lame rehash of Death of Spider-Man Dying Wish seemed to be going for at the time, by pointing out how regular marvel seems to be copying Ultimate Marvel and hoping they wouldn't be that lame.

This was before the whole not really dead retraction thing back when we didn't know what Superior was really about.

Age of Ultron #1:

first impression. yet another alternate reality tale. doesn't "count". not as interesting. and given the total lack of explanation for the premise, it all feels pretty small. Ultron doesn't even appear. just like "House of M". yes I know there were consequences at the END of House of M, but the alternate reality itself didn't "count".

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Magneto frakked New York a couple years back, razed all 5 Burroughs... but every other comic book that out that month seemeds to ignore the event.

The Trauma of the Inferno!

Fire Hydrants where bludgeoning dogs to death.

Kang built concentraion camps during the 6 months he ruled America after George Bush signed the US Surrender. Seriously, issue 50ish, George hands over the country because he's a wussy, and then everything carries on as if it never happened... There is no way George would have gotten a second term after losing the war, and losing America.

Besides.

Two words.

Damage Control.

In 1988 Spider-Man knocked over the World trade Centre.

Damage Control rebuilt it.

IN 1993, Juggernaut knocked over one of the Towers to the World trade Centre.

Damage Control rebuilt it again!

Damage Control RULES!

They don't have to go through time and fix everything in the final issue, sure they can but New Yorkers are hard ass obstinate enough to carry on after the Apocalypse as if it's just a bit of bad weather.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Keep in mind that Bendis actually wrote Age of Ultron about two years ago...and it was announced almost two and a half years ago. This has been pushed back at least three times that I recall. Basically most people thought it would be the grand finale of Bendis "Avengers" run. Marvel decided to make it an event instead though last year. They've pretty much stated that it will be mostly self contained.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Like Reed Richard's she has transcended code names.

Ariel? Sprite?

Like hell those two names were going to stick.

She's been in four miniseries where the title has always read Kitty Pryde... or Pryde, but that's because they were totally going for a Bronte sisters vibe there. I miss Pete Wisdom. That flag faced ponce is running a British School for Gifted Youngsters but what's Pete up to these days?

http://www.comics.org/series/name/Pryde/sort/alpha/

Then there's also

http://www.jumpingfrog.com/images/comics20/com1729.jpg

Marvel team Up 3 (Volume 2) doesn't have any of the girls names on the cover.

Do any of you remember the debate about Pussy Pride vs Vaginal Hubris from (the sitcom) The league?

Pussy is another word for kitty.

I'm not literally comparing her to a vagina, obviously.

But some of the scrapes this kid gets into, are certainly Pride vs hubris.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Didn't Joss reactive her Shadowcat codename? I am pretty sure she didn't use it for a while and just went by Kitty Pryde.
