Quote:I think your outrage at Tony would be more credible if you held Reed Richards to the same standard. It almost seems hypocritical of you to let Reed off the hook. In all my years of reading your posts, I've never once seen you criticize Reed's role in Civil War, and he is just as guilty as Tony. He stood by Tony's side during the entire event, agreeing with him, helping him make the Thor clone, and masterminding the whole thing.
I was done with Reed loooooooong before Civil War. I've only ever been able to tolerate him for Ben and sometimes Sue (I have severe problems with Sue, and they're all because of her connection to him). He's the primary reason I've never been crazy about FF. I've never tried to smooth things over when it came to him.
I'm pretty sure I was vocal, at the time, in that I thought Sue should have outright divorced Reed during Civil War. IIRC, she even had papers drawn up. This was one of the best things, imo, I've ever seen Sue do as a character. I was let down when it was quickly brushed aside. Of all of Marvel's marriages, I've wanted that one done
more than anything else. Even last week I said something to the effect that if I had the power, Reed+Sue would be over in 5 minutes.
I just seem to mention Tony more than Reed. Tony's a bigger factor in Marvel. I tend to stay away from too much FF because of Reed
Why give Mark Millar that much power?
Think about it, you've gone 12 whole years now being disgusted with Tony all because some writer wrote 7 comic books way back in 2006. Don't you want to break free of Mark Millar's story and move on?
Question Millar's motives. It's not Tony's fault that he was demonized by a writer. You being "done" with Iron Man gives Mark a WIN, in my humble opinion.
Now, of coarse you can turn the table on me. You can say that I have allowed writers to make me LOVE Tony Stark, rather than hate the character. Bob, Dave, Stan, and all the rest have shaped my attitude toward Tony over the years as well. So, yeah, it goes both ways.
