Yes, but he's also a Spider-god and does things he would never do.

Cap's dead. Any little shred of credibility Marvel would be lost if they did this.

You can only correct so much. CW really destroyed the ability to do stuff with some of the characters. I always believed some writer with the right ability could do some cool stuff with Spider-man, not now.

Again, Cap would of been great if he wasn't dead. Iron man would be great if I actually cared about what was going on. Where are all the super villians all of a sudden.

Getting rid of the NA team (forever!) and changing back IM into a less than uber-impervious 'hero' might not be a bad idea either....this new IM just astinks on every level and is 100% uninteresting, not more so.

What IS the point of the 50 state inititave? Where are all these super powered freaks coming from? Cap was unique because his formula was the only one of his own. They took away all the Mutants for this I suppose.

> ...and while they're at it, making their huge cast of villians and criminals viable again, from the Wrecker and Mr. Hyde to Mephisto and Kang, would also be an excellent idea.

Your saying Mr. Hyde isn't dangerous?

You actually have to get it and do the work. This hyped up nonsense isn't going to do anything even it were true.

You really think comics lose any credibility when a character returns from the dead? Pfft.

Well, Marvel does have well over 10,000 characters that seldom see the light of day.
