    Isn't Carol older than Peter, by like 10 years? She always seems to be on the older end of the spectrum with other heroes. Not Ben or Reed or Tony old, but in that Steve/John Walker/Rhodey spectrum.

    If anyone deserves to be Marvel's premier super heroine, and no offense to Carol, it has to be Sue Storm.

    Sort of.

    Well, if not Wolverine, who should Carol have sex with to make her more interesting as a character? Tony Stark? I think they already did that at one point. I guess you could do a Captain sexing Captain thing with her and Captain America.

He's not crazy, though he is haunted by his past, by his current role, and he still faces the old problems of depression and isolation.

    So like an Adam Warlock kind of deal where maybe he tries to purge the evil from his being, but whoops, now there's Magus?

    crimsondude I would hate you making pym competent.

    he is the best because he is the worst!

    I never said he'd be competent. He'd be swashbuckling action scientist and someone Carol is learning from—by doing the opposite of what he does—whose ass she has to save every five issues from some random space mercenaries/pirates/whatever.


    NOT GOOD ENOUGH

    remember hank is a dude who banged a robot with his dead wife's personality in a mansion he built in her corperal form while going by her name.

    this is hank pym

    he is the man who built a robot to kill the avengers that only he could stop only OH NO he couldn't stop it

    and this was after Ultron

    Carol and Tony should go on an alcoholic sex spree, then go through rehab together.

    It is kind of weird how Marvel seems to have all the gay guys, and DC seems to have all the lesbians.

    EDIT: I'll say this for the Avengers porn movie, they've got She-Hulk spot on.

    Uh. I'm gonna be that guy and ask why she needs a sexual relationship in order to be more interesting.

    But if we're brainstorming, I say she should just pull a Grace Jones and take Namor.

    There's a really interesting portrayal of a trans person in a Mystique issue, I want to say one of BKV's, where they draw out a ton of sympathy with Mystique herself. One of my favourite things about that excellent series.

    That's a good point. There doesn't need to be one. My thinking in mentioning Spidey is that it exists, and it's endearing for some reason. However, there's no necessity in there being one.

    Between their military background, membership in the Avengers and the overlapping team-ups with Machine Man, I would be fascinated to see her interact with Thunderbolt Ross.

    The most common lesbian shipping, BTW, is either with Wanda or Jessica Drew. I'd just as soon see Drew vanish forever, but unless something's changed they are still close friends. So she's probably going to be around regardless.

    Nrama: Kelly Sue, how do you characterize the dynamic between Peter Parker and Carol Danvers? And does it change at all with Carol's new status as Captain Marvel?

    DeConnick: It's a fun flirtation. I don't know if I can imagine it becoming an actual relationship — I think Parker's a bit boyish for Carol, but you never know, I guess. The heart wants what it wants, right? Whatever else they are, they're very good friends. And no, Carol's new title changes nothing about that dynamic.

    I'm actually confused as to Cap endgame here. He's written as badly in this as Cyclops was in the first two issues.

    It's a really weird plot issue where Tony is saying what quite a few people are saying in regards to Cap's actions, but no one in the book is listening. It's as though everyone's acting like a teenager who knows everything.

    One thing I don't buy is that Cyclops doesn't have a plan. He had something like 200 plans for dealing with a possessed Juggernaut that just appeared 24 hours earlier, he should easily have 50 right now. Oh Gillen, you should have been head architect, and worn black framed glasses and drive to work in a SAAB...

    Avengers Academy #29 was good, better than some of the other tie-ins, it does a decent job of trying to ride the tension between Scott's Tots and the Academy with how some mutants are ok with house arrest, the others get really freaked out because they were just attacked by the Avengers and are now supposed to be bffs with their kids (bonus points if they can tie this back to Decimation with the mansion under 24/7 surveillance). Although Pixie could just teleport everyone away, and it just feels weird how the students weren't mentioned in AvX #3, and how we're just going with the idea that Scott would abandon them or Logan wouldn't just put them back at his school (in AvX #3 the Avengers flew all the way back to NYC anyway)

    It does get points off because it seems whatever Asmus had in store for Shaw, that's gone away. A clever use of his powers this issue but too much trying to connect Shaw with the Dark Phoenix Saga. Even a classic Byrne homage at the end.

    AvX doesn't seem like a very well put together event, IMHO. Not really much in the way of foreshadowing, or setting up the character's motivation. Right now it kind of ranks below Fear Itself for me.

    I kind of respect how AvX is like, Event².

    Big name artist? How about four?

    Big name writer? How about five?

    The two biggest franchises fighting? Let's dump some Phoenix and Decimation in there, too, and then tie it into the return of Nova and Cable!

    On the flipside, the whole endeavor seems really soulless and goofy, to me. It's comics by committee, seemingly designed solely for maximum marketability.

    I think it would've been a more interesting event if it was more along the lines of Civil War. Like, the Avengers are enforcing a Mutant Registration Act because people with powers are more dangerous than loaded guns. They could've made some interesting parallels, like the mutants could have holed up in Utopia like David Koresh's cult. Only less...cultish
