    You all like Lyja? Not that Skrull redemption isn't cool....

I have no opinion on Lyja as I had already dropped the book when I thought Johnny was dating Alicia.

    but no one would like to see Johnny reunite with Crystal? Or is that just so over? \:\)

Yeah, that's so over. I think I dropped the book for a while when Crystal and Quicksilver became an item. But the fact that she was able to switch over to Quicksilver so easily tells me she was never really in love with Johnny.

    I mean, she has been through alot of marriages I think at this point and has a kid. AND, ever since Johnny slept with Medusa.....I suppose that might be a problem, depending on how Inhumans approach these things.

I wanted Crystal and Ronan the Accuser to stay together. That was truly an interesting relationship with lots of story potential.

Johnny dating Medusa was nauseating to me. It caused me to stop reading the Inhumans comic.

It seems I'm a bad audience for a tactic Marvel loves to use, which is drawing attention to a comic by doing something bizarre. I don't like bizarre. Ben wearing a helmet was bizarre. I didn't like it. To this day I have no idea what the creative team was thinking. Did the artist have trouble drawing Ben's face?

Crystal falling in love with Ronan the Accuser wasn't bizarre to me. Anyone who could fall in love with Pietro could fall in love with anyone. Plus the underlying scenario - an arranged marriage developing into love over time - is something that has happened very often in our real world and is actually interesting to me.

I thought The Thing's helmet was due to the damage to his face by Wolverine's adamantine claws? It was supposed because Ben felt he was even more horrific than ever and wanted to hide his scarred face - and I suspect also to prevent further damage so it could heal.
