Hello, chaps. I do hope your 2010 started off on the proper footing.

At this time of year, we celebrate the spirit of Janus. We look in both directions; forward and backward, and pause before barrelling on to the next Special Event. With this in mind, the powers that be at Marvel Comics sat down, and made a list honouring its Heroes Of The Decade.

I really afraid Spider-Man would turn out to be the hero of the decade. That would have made me cry.

Okay. *takes biscuit*

At least he's only number 6. That makes me feel better.

Edit: Nevermind, missread the entry.

And the sad part is, the pre-OMD stuff was damn good and would have deserved to make the list.

So, according to Marvel, the greatest hero of this past decade was the guy who did to superheroes what George W. Bush did to civil liberties and "homeland security."

Not only does that sum up the current Marvel mindset frighteningly well, but it also goes corresponds nicely to the Zeroes already being one of the more unrepentantly evil decades in the past century.

Pretty sure he got this award because of the movie.

THIS!

If Tony Stark is on that list as a hero, then Osborn ought to be listed as well. The guy may be a psychotic douche but at least he's up front about it.

And he's actually managed to keep the Dark Avengers on a leash.

I'm sure it played a part, but that's still pretty damn myopic, since for as much as his third film sucked, Spider-Man had THREE blockbuster movies to Iron Man's one, which means that "best of the decade" is really "best of the END of the decade" in Marvel's eyes.

That being said, RDJ is a better Tony Stark than Tobey Maguire is a Peter Parker (and I liked him as Peter in the first two movies).

Tobey Maguire sucked ass as Peter Parker. He's one step ahead of Michael Cera (who I CAN NOT STAND).

Iron Man was a mega hit though, it's also the most recent memory of Marvel greatness, so it gets the spot.

The 00's weren't that bad for Marvel in my opinion either. Dark Reign has been fun, Siege looks cool, Punisher MAX was the best comic of both companies. Ultimate was a huge success until Lobe.

Honestly, Marvel's been my go to comics company. After One Piece of course.

Let's be fair here. The Registration Act wasn't really...an awful idea at first look. It sort of makes sense too. I mean, in reality you would actually need it.

It just got....really badly handled.

The books after BKV left went downhill rather quickly but none the less the debuted in this decade and were awesome for a good portion of it and never did anything that superdickish like almost the rest of the list.

That's just it, it always gets badly handled.

Be it racial profiling of Blacks, Latinos, Arabs here in America, the persecution of Jews in Nazi Germany and the internment camps of Japanese Americans during World War II.

In fact in New Avengers, Luke Cage called Stark on that shit for exactly that reason.

If they were just asking people who were ACTIVELY out there as superheroes to register, that would've been one thing but any meta was required to register and that's where they crossed the line.

But let's be fair. Blacks, Jews and Asians don't have reality warping abilities or energy blasts. I'm sorry if this sounds fucked up, be shouldn't we be able to keep track of people who can destroy cities with eye beams?

I like Tobey Maguire as Peter but I can't stand him as Spider-Man. his voice when he tries wise-cracking just grates on me.

No it's the ones trying to keep track of the people are the ones we need to keep track of.

Have you watched American media in the last 9 years? The same arguments they made about the metas (and I know that's a DC term but roll with me on this) are the same arguments they make about Arabs because of Osama Bin Laden and 9/11.

"They're all extremists because of their religion, they're dangerous."

Nevermind the fact I didn't hear anyone talk that bullshit about registering all white people after Timothy McVeigh bombed those Oklahoma City buildings.

Or racist conservatives often argue "Blacks and Latinos have a high crime rate and they all have guns so racially profiling is a necessity for the safety of the community."

Which is bullshit but that garbage still gets spewed.

It's the same thing: whether it's the Superhero Registration, McCarthyism, the Japanese American internment camps, Nazi Germany or the Salem Witch Trials. People allowing fear to rule them at the expense of innocent people's basic rights.

Dark Reign has been better than Civil War, where I got so tired of Dick!Tony I stopped buying books he would appear in, but I'm seriously tired of it and the ridiculous ease of perfection that Osborn is displaying. Even his breakdowns have no effect on anything around him.

I still think the biggest failing of the third movie was having Topher Grace in it at all.

Because he would have made a MUCH better Peter and Spider-Man than Maguire ever could be, and putting him on screen with Maguire just showcased it.

Yes, but the difference here is that with racial and religous discrimation you are dealing with ignorant presumptions of powers or abilities. With Registration, you deal with actual proven, extremely dangerous abilities.

Look, I'm a mega liberal, but let's be honest here, I would want government to keep track of people with the ability to blow up my brain with a thought. Will they do it? Probably not, but just like we have gun registries we should have power registries.

Now I know what you're gonna say "But they're PEOPLE!" I understand this, and yes it does suck, but it's a necessary evil. The government isn't going to swoop in and steal meta kids, it's just going to keep a record of them and their abilities.

I'm not talking internment camps here, the registration act would make sense.

Said it before, I'll say it again: THey struck down the Mutant Registration Act already. Why is something with a broader scope less unconstitutional?

Osbourne has been able to keep his shit together remarkably well, and Siege is showing so far that he can only last so long. He's keeping his nuttiness locked in so much that it's gonna blow into a gigantic shit storm.

I'm betting by the end of Siege it becomes pblic that he planned out the Football Stadium disaster and he goes down.
