What If: Stan Lee wrote Civil War?

When we last left our heroes, J. Jonah Jameson had repeatedly owned Spider-Man on live TV, causing our favorite web-slinger to seriously consider giving up his secret identity. But not content with mere verbal attacks, JJJ has gotten Tony Stark involved in his anti-vigilante vendetta!

That time the Avengers fought the heroes of Vietnam

Hi folks, let's go back to 1974 and the country of Vietnam. A country that had seen far too much war, and was about to see more.



"Wait," you say, "The Slasher? Who he?" He's also known as Buzzsaw and Razorblade, and this is his debut appearance. Six pages of eighteen in Avengers #130.

The Man Who Had Everything--But Had Not Love

Hi folks!

Back in the day, Marvel Comics had a "no late shipping" rule. If it looked like a writer or artist wasn't going to get their work in by deadline, the editor would slip in a filler story prepared in advance. Some of them were good, others not so much.



I'll let you decide which one this is. Six pages of eighteen, plus a treat.

Lo, the Eternity Man Cometh! )

Iron Man #14 - The Secret Origin of Tony Stark: The Best Offense, Part Two



"I think what I do only helps Tony as a character, even as it fundamentally alters his position in the universe forever. It's a big, existential sort of story.

"I smile at myself as I write that, as it's the Nothing Will Be The Same Again sort of hype we've all heard. I don't, as a rule, often say things like that in interviews. I think this is one case it's justified."

Iron Man #13 - "The Secret Origin of Tony Stark: The Best Offense, Part One"



'The response is pretty much what I expected. The people who hate it are responding exactly as they should — in fact, they're having Tony's response to the revelations, which is kind of my point. The people who like it are buying into the, "Actually, that does explain a lot of things" aspect of the story. I think it's strong. I think even people who dislike the idea initially are going to be talked around to what we're doing by the time we reach its epilogue in issue #17.' -- Kieron Gillen
