Quote:While saling have been falling, your reasoning has no legs. Marvel's been doing controversal stories to get people talking and get attention since the comic line began anew 50 years ago.
Wouldn't that mean his reasoning has the longest legs of all? He didn't suggest a controversial storyline designed to get attention was a rare thing--just that that may have been the thinking. As you point out, it often has been.
I interpreted it as the reason they came up with a controversal story was due to falling sales.
