> This is in regards to the responses below regarding the "I hate Rhino" thread (in case it drops off): Despite the fact that everyone ganged up on me and said otherwise, I did read the preview of the SHE-HULK #21 issue at the time I first saw it, and it didn't matter to me what was said in the dialogue. It didn’t matter that Slott wrote the Rhino scene to point out the things I’ve said about the use of the Rhino. The point of the thread was that I hated the Rhino.
>The point of the thread was that you hated seeing the Rhino again, when it is NOT the Rhino. Had you actually read the issue you would find this out.
>So, Dragynwulf, my complaint was justified No it wasn't.
>because I was complaining about the Rhino being used yet again for the zillionth time -- it didn't matter what the Rhino was doing and saying in the issue....he was just there.
>No he was not in the issue. Hence me using "Rhino" in quotes.
>There was nothing in the original thread about how much I dislike Slott's work. There were no potshots. The thread was about how much I disliked the Rhino. That’s it.
>It was complaining about Dan Slott's writing because you were complaining about the Rhino being used "again", when in FACT the Rhino was not used again. Had you taken the time to read the issue you would know exactly what the issue is about instead of jumping to a conclusion of the Rhino being in an issue when in fact he was not.
>It just so happened that he appeared in a Dan Slott-written book. Had the Rhino showed up in IRON MAN #22 or JIMMY CRACK CORN AND I DON’T CARE #45, I still would have complained.
> And you still would not have read the issue either and still complained about an issue that you have not read at all. So what if a character you do not like appears in an issue you did not read or even buy. Had you bought the issue, then you could actually have something to complain about, but you didn't and the only time you wasted on the subject is you taking the time to go online and complain about something you didn't read, didn't buy and don't know what the story is about.Have a Nice Day!
..even using the Rhino's image in a story for one or more panels is in a sense 'using the Rhino' in the story, just as in early Wolverine Logan often had conversations in his psyche with Carol Danvers, and we saw Carol, even though she wasn't actually there herself. It can still be said that the writer was 'using Carol Danvers,' since it was the face and character of Carol Danvers as we knew her.
But, I agree for the most part with you, DW. A12 jumped the gun.
