Quote: The preview looks good, but I'm not too crazy about The High Evolutionary anymore, because usually whenever he shows up, some kind of rencontre or convoluted plot is going to happen. Is this going to be his first appearance since Secret Wars?
Let's hope he's evolved as a character.
But yeah they really do seem to trot him out when they want to retcon or de-retcon something. Personally I think Spider-Man and Scarlet Witch should kick him in the nuts for all the times he's messed with their lives with his lies.
The Scarlet Witch he has a history with, but Peter and him having only encountered each other once (To my knowledge anyway.) during the old Evolutionary War. HE revealed that Professor Warren didn't create any clones. But the High Evolutionary didn't create the clones either, so it's not like he did anything to Peter. It later got retconned in that Miles Warren and the High Evolutionary had a history and used to work together, which is why I'm not too crazy about the character (The retcon factor. They also tied him into working with Mr. Sinister before he became Sinister, too.). Plus, writers can't seem to get consistent characterization on him, sometimes he's a villain, sometimes he's just kind of there. He's just a weird character!
