    Were it up to me, both of the Vell kids would be gone, retroactively.


Except for how it would affect DNA's Guardians of the Galaxy run, I wouldn't bat an eye.

      Harry Osborn, in my book, is a better Green Goblin than Norman.



    Quote:
    Him being a Goblin is what ruined him as a character, imo.


I never really got serious about reading Spider-Man, so I've only really known Harry post-Goblin. One of my favorite Spider-Man stories is "The Child Within" from Spectacular Spider-Man (somewhere in the late 160s/early 170s?) that plays with the parent-issues of Peter, Harry AND Vermin. It's heavy stuff.

      More of a Beta Ray Bill fan that Thor (no opinion of Jane Foster, good or bad).



    Quote:
    As much as I like Bill, I think he's almost devoid of personality. When written well, Thor is great.


I don't know. I probably need to go back and re-read Simonson' run, but I don't know that I've ever really read Thor as a complex, well developed character.

    Thinking too much about Jane gets me really mad. Even now as Valkyrie.

      Quote:
      Scott Lang is probably better than Hank Pym.



    Quote:
    I used to say this, but those last few Ant-Man series really used him horribly, imo. And imo, Pym became better than Ant-Man.


Give me red-jumpsuit Dr. Pym or crazy-@$$ Wasp any day.

    Well, yeah. That's pretty much his point.


yup.

      Quote:
      This might be a cheat, but I think the government sponsored X-Factor was better than the still excellent Louise Simonson created one, and the Madrox led Detective years were better than that.



    Quote:
    Well, agreed with that latter part. Government X-Factor may have been written well, but that doesn't mean the team was better. And I think Havok and Polaris were better not superheroing.


Gov't X-Factor weren't better super-heroes, but they were a heck of a lot more fun to read.
