  2. No, that's a jerk. He started out as jus folks.

  3. I... I sort of agree with this guy...

    ReplyDelete
  4. I agreed with him until the end.

    Then I got sad.

  5. Hey, at least he is no racist.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Damn, that was uplifting for half a second ...

    ReplyDelete
  7. It's true.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Spider-Man never got his groove back after the whole Spider-clone fiasco of the early 90s. Sad but true.

  9. Isn't about time we retired the word "suck"? Really, it's been overdone, overused and has lost any type of meaning anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  10. He might have overstated it somewhat, but it's a legit opinion (no, I don't agree).

    ReplyDelete
  11. at least he got the first half right

    ReplyDelete
  12. Much like fuck suits just about any situation, there isn't an easy replacement for suck that conveys the absolute...well, suckitude of the matter.

    ReplyDelete
  13. suck SUCKS! and saying something's gay is like SO GAY because it's totally retarded!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Spider-Man doesn't suck! He's fetch!
    (I'm trying to make "fetch" a catchphrase like whatsherface in "Mean Girls." )

    ReplyDelete
  15. Stop trying to make fetch happen. It's never gonna happen!

  16. We can still use "shiny", though, right?

    ReplyDelete
  17. funny how if someone is half black they're ALL black. obama:black, tiger woods:black, spider-man:black

  18. "We can still use "shiny", though, right?"

    Yeah. Shiny is streets ahead.

  19. "Spider-Man never got his groove back after the whole Spider-clone fiasco of the early 90s. Sad but true."

    Haha, I love when people put "sad but true" on the end of their opinions like it's some incontrovertible truth.

    I beg to differ, a lot of Spidey's post-90's stuff is some of his best stuff. Sad but true.

  20. thestray - it was just an opinion, not a fucking duel. How about you lighten up? We have fun here. The exact opposite of what you just did.

    ReplyDelete
  21. And on top of that - you can't really be defending '90s Spider-ANYTHING. Sad but true.

    ReplyDelete
  22. "Yeah. Shiny is streets ahead."

    People who say streets ahead make me go bitchcakes.

  23. "Isn't about time we retired the word "suck"? Really, it's been overdone, overused and has lost any type of meaning anymore."
    Yeah this guy really should have went into a bulleted explanation of why Spiderman is no longer a character he respects or admires.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wait...I don't get it. Other than failing to mention that the only decent Spiderman isn't due for another 88 years, what's so OVC-worthy about his statement?

    ReplyDelete
  25. I like the Home Movies reference with the shirt.

    Or, you could go the Josie and the Pussycats route. This is JERKIN'!

    ReplyDelete
  27. What do you mean another 88 y... oh. Yeah. Right. That was... will be... a decent Spiderman.

    "Or, you could go the Josie and the Pussycats route. This is JERKIN'! "

    I'm afraid a lot of people, myself included, would read that as having a slightly different meaning than intended.

    ReplyDelete
  29. It is a different damn universe. Is it that hard for the mainstream press to report that?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Um, well yeah. Mainstream press isn't even aware there's a shared universe to begin with, nor is it relevant to the people they report to.

    They're not there to inform the comic book fans. They're here to tell grandma minor pieces of interest at a pace that matches her advanced age.

    ReplyDelete
  31. YES!! Exactly my thoughts on the subject. Thank you random comic book store customer.

    ReplyDelete
  32. He had me until the end. Then he lost me.

  33. "funny how if someone is half black they're ALL black. obama:black, tiger woods:black, spider-man:black"

    If any of these people were bus drivers or postal workers, the people saying this stuff wouldn't give two craps. They'd think these people were black.
