    The whole idea of super heroes are proposterous, so just go with it. Don't try and ground it in realism.

Agreed with this. I'm not very sure how many people know what realism is nowadays, anyway. "Reality TV?!" HA!

    They really want to increase sales, go back to cheap paper, go back to creators getting smaller salaries, aim them at kids, put them down to 50p a comic and circulation will go back up. I bet you. What under 10 has £20 a month to pay on comic books.

I was getting much more than that in allowance when I was 10 (40 years ago). And we were almost poor.

In the US, kids (ages 8-12) are spending about $40 billion per year of "their own money." There are about 10 million of them. That means they're getting about $4000 per year, on average, or $300 and change per month. This really doesn't count necessities that mommy and daddy are providing. They generally have the money. It's up to Marvel to exploit that and relieve them of it.

City of Heroes is BACK!
