Dear Marvel,

Hey. I know, it has been a while, and our last falling out was pretty harsh. I saw your number on my caller ID. I've seen your occasional posts on Facebook. I see you're getting better, and that's great. You're doing the things that make me want to be around you, to be your friend again. Compelling stories with good characters again? You're working on it! That's awesome.

Now, I'm not saying I'm coming back for a commitment, far from it. But maybe, maybe...we can get coffee sometime? Go over some issues? I think that would be nice. We were friends and so much more for so long, and our last breakup was hard. But I'm willing to chat and be civil with you again. Just don't backslide, ok? Alright. Next Wednesday it is.

The hate-filled, cynical part of me thinks that Marvel didn't simply have the spider-powers/mutations simply fade after the Big Bad's defeat just to include a scene were Peter takes MJ's powers away, Silver Age!Superman style.

Yes, I take my Haterade extra-strength, why do you ask?

Jezz Peter. What a way to be a party pooper. You could of let her have some fun for awhile.

Nice video too. :)

Hey, at least Spider-Girl got to keep HER powers!

I assume she's not mutating into a giant spider because she's one of the "True Spiders" or whatever.

Damn. I thought you'd had the class discussion on your blog but it's just that old Equality, Now speech. Not that it wasn't an awesome speech, lol, but I wanted to know more about the discussion about Whedon and Gifted and feminism *pouts*

It's weird because in this issue the Horizon Labs people said that the cure would take away ANY Spider powers, including Peter's and he's a true Spider. And Julia Carpenter confirmed that, saying that he could have lived a normal life if he took that cure.

So I don't see how Anya kept her powers.

Joss loves victimizing his female characters to much and destroys them in ways he never even attempts with the male characters I've seen. Also their recovery is frequnetly(much like many of the times he's ruined a relationship of some sort) simply slide over for the next trauma

Did you post the right video? It's just Joss Whedon talking about his mom and stuff. I thought it was gonna be about "The Avengers."

For the men, I think Angel is the only one who came close to suffering what some of the women of the Buffyverse suffered. And the women of the Buffyverse surviving going through the ringer didn't make me feel they were stronger, it made me feel whatever choice they'd make they end up going through it.

I would have occasionally liked to see them avoid their problems because it would have made it seem less like the universe going "well we can't torment you anymore this year if we want there to be a next year to torment you."

Ah, because of the whole feminism angle. I getcha. It seemed dry for something you were so excited about; genuine confusion on my part - not snark. but I get why it hit the spot, now.

Joss Whedon will destroy every character you love, male or female. It's just is MO.

Nah, I like MJ better as a citizen. She doesn't need to be super.

Everybody wanted MJ to keep her powers, made even sense story-wise for future plots and whatnot!
