    Flash this week was mostly Wally thinking about his past, not a bad recap.

    That was my guess too, though it's complicated by the fact that one would expect the President to be a public figure.

    Well it would have to be under a new identity yeah

    That was amazing, reminded me of a Barry Allen story. We'll see what happens - I like reading the history because I've been reading the actual issues they were talking about!

    X-Files #1 this week was pretty cool. I can't wait for more, it is written by Frank Spotnitz - he was a writer for the show, perhaps the best.

    I havent read all the way through my stack, but Thunderbolts series is developing in an interesting direction. I wonder if the writer will have enough guts and editorial control to follow up all the way through...

    It's been said already but yeah, Thunderbolts, and specifically the Songbird/Radioactive man/Bullseye scene would be my motw hands down. Although finding a bunch of old Alan Moore swamp thing trades in the library would be a close second.

    Oh, and Ghost Rider was good this month.

    I remember reading that one over and over as a kid. I'll try to dig out that issue and scan it later.

    So Madrox doesn't have control over creation of his duplicates? If he gets jarred around, he duplicates himself?

    It seems like he can control it if he is expecting a hit but if he gets hit and he's not expecting it sometimes they pop out. It varies a bit.

    At least in the miniseries it looked like he could do it on command, it wouldn't trigger for things like walking or stubbing his toe or high-fiving or something. But it also seems to happen whenever he gets punched. Then again, that's basically his only power in a fight, so it might just be him letting it happen.


    Which reminds me: I think Multiple Man would make a cooler movie than say, Ant-Man. I mean, he had to talk one of his selfs down from suiciding, that was awesome.

    The dupes pop out only when Jamie absorbs a certain amount of kinetic energy. Generally, if he stomps his foot hard, one will pop out.`

    When he dies, I hope they write "Worst Affirmative Action Hire, EVER" on his grave. His corpse should be trolled.

    That is awesome. Can he make them go away on command? If one dies, does he die?

    I find him fascinating.

    If one dies, he doesn't die. But if he reabsorbs them he does gain their knowledge.

    EDIT: I think he absorbs their injuries to. But they partially repair based on his healthier frame and vice versa.

    ...it's in the shape of a giant c**k.

    He actually has a wide array of knowledge thanks to sending dupes out into the world to become experts in various fields and then absorbing them upon their return. He's not to Batman levels of prepared, but he's well-equipped.

    If I recall correctly, there was a throwaway line in Morrison's New X-men where Siryn asked Madrox if he ever just made a bunch of dupes and started an orgy with himself...kinky.

    Three cheers if someone can find the scan of that.

    Have they explained the duplication of his clothes?

    Are they special clothes?

    Does he have a duplication field?

    If he has a dupe field, could he counterfeit money in it?

    I don't know the specifics, but he can seemingly duplicate any inorganic item he's in contact with.

    Wiki says
    Madrox's duplications also creates copies of the clothing he is wearing and a HYDRA scientist has speculated that he could duplicate any matter he is holding, a power surpassing simple self-duplication. His powers have, at least once, been shown to affect the actual design of the shirt he was wearing.

    The implications of that could be quite frightening. Well they would be if he was a supervillian.
