I didn't post this during this during my initial 'Bendis' Daredevil' series but I figured I would now. It's his first Daredevil story that he did and it was a stand-alone arc that took place before his main run began (there was another writer's arc in between the two). It's considerably different in style and tone than the rest of his work.

As a warning, this story deals with child abuse.

This might be me worrying over nothing. My hangup over Spider-Man becoming part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is this...
MCU heroes are not hesitant about killing the bad guys. Will this carry over to MCU Spider-Man?
Trigger warning for superhero morality.

There are some artists who were ahead of their time, or at least the printing process involved in the production of their art. Art Adam's is one of them, as this story from 1986 proves.

This is very much a case in point, you can SEE the colouring and printing process mangling this tale to hell and back, and that's painful.

This story, has, to the best of my knowledge, never been collected or reprinted, which is a shame as it really deserves a modern re-colouring and printing if any does.

Ann Nocenti was the creator and writer on the series which made Art Adams a name to be recognised; "Longshot", the story of a sort of naive, well-meaning alien dealing with the real world and finding the likes of moral ambiguity frustrating. Here we see something quite similar, using another handy naive, well-meaning alien... One of my favourites!

Warlock! And Art Adams Warlock at that! )

There's this thing over in TV Tropes called "Reed Richards is useless", the idea being that despite all the overblown superscience avaliable in superhero comics, none of the spectacular advances made will ever impact regular folk due to the restraints of keeping the setting as close to reality as possible. This isn't the case in every series (the DCAU did a good job in keeping ideas around once they were invented, the process that created Mr Freeze being replicable, for example), but Marvel, with their long time ethic of being more "real" than DC's output it's particularly noticable.

One way that this presents itself is in that most stock of end goals for science: the Cure for Cancer! Thing is, there are numerous actual cures for the condition knocking about in the Marvel Universe, but unlike the Reed Richards is Useless trope, the reason why they're not available isn't because they're too impractical or expensive for the public market, it's... well, the people who discovered it are kind of tools.
