Quote:Generally, that's how I am too, but there are some exceptions, and I really blame most of the bad 90s on those Image guys.
Always it's the ones who only want to use Marvel as a stepping stone. Same thing has happened this century. The superstars show up and all they really want to do is make their mark. They make a big mess and then they leave. But I don't remember it being as bad in the 90s as it is today. I mean, sure, we had Heroes Reborn, but that was never more than an extended "What If" event. It came and it went and the old status quo reasserted itself. I actually liked some of the ideas. Reed Richards, Victor Von Doom, Tony Stark, and Bruce Banner all being connected made sense to me. It set up a structure that I was interested to see explored. Also the big "What If" event established a break in the original flow that allowed Tony Stark to sort of reboot when the event was over. Prior to the event his book was almost a total loss.
