Attok, I'm glad you came to this decision. It's what you should do. This is, after all, a message board based on reader opinion, is it not?

As far as the whole Rhino thing, with the exception of my original reply stating that Wanda appeared to be in it too(even though it's obviously not the real Wanda), I stayed out of the whole conversation and watched if from afar over the last few days.

Dan Slott has every right to defend his story, but what I found peculiar was that once he stated his opinion, that's when the "let's jump all over Attok" thing began. If we are all students of Marvel and one of the instructors suddenly shows up and chastises one of those students, should the rest of the class suddenly all stand behind that instructor and join in the reprimand by sticking out their tongues and pointing fingers? The analogy may not be quite what I'm looking for but it's the best I can do on work time.

So stick to your guns and give your opinions.

Using the Rhino, even if it is too demonstrate how the character is overused, is still using the Rhino. I agree, this character has been floating around the MU way too much over the last few years to the point of overkill. Will his appearances diminish after this story? I sincerely hope so. If it doesn't, and the Rhino continues to be one of those villains that is trotted out every few months, then you will feel a measure of vindication.

Has no one made a snap judgement before based on a 6 to 7 page preview? I have, and I'm sure many other posters have too. These previews can't possibly contain the gist of the entire story. They exist simply to wet the appetite of existing fans and to possibly bring some new ones over to the title. The "don't judge until you've read the entire issue" argument doesn't quite apply here. It's an objection against the character, not the storyline. Dan Slott may feel different, but that's his opinion.

I've seen on this board and others many snap reactions to the upcoming issue of Ms. Marvel and the depiction of the Puppet Master. I admit that it looks like his character has taken a drastic, sleazy turn. But what if there's a reason for this? All hasn't been revealed. And yet I don't see any poster being criticized for making assumptions based on this preview. If Brian Reed were to show up and ask a certain poster to just stop speculating and not judge until he/she read the issue, would everyone suddenly jump all over the poster in question? I hope not, but that's what I saw happen with your thread.

That's what I plan on doing now. I also plan on warning people at the beginning of a thread if I plan on ranting about something. That way, anyone who hates my ranting can move on to another thread. \:\-\) Otherwise, anyone who reads on after the warning can get all huffy puffy as much as they want cuz I warned 'em and they chose to ignore the warning. >:-D \:\-\)

This kind of thing has happened a lot with me, but eh. As far as the Puppet Master is concerned, I got sick of the way he was always used, so this new take is refreshing to me. Will it work? The story has yet to play out completely, but I find it interesting so far.
