"It’s been a long time since there was true emotional romance in Victor Von Doom’s life and that’s what Howard the Duck is here for." - Brian Michael Bendis

Infamous Iron Man #1



"Everybody has Doctor Doom misunderstood. Everybody thinks he’s a criminal, but all he wants is to rule the world. Now, if you really think about it objectively, you could just walk up to a police officer and you could say, ‘Excuse me, officer? I want to rule the world.’ He can’t arrest you. It’s not a crime to want to rule the world. It’s unfair that he’s considered a villain. He just wants to rule the world and maybe he could do a better job of it." - Stan Lee

Ultimate Comics Spider-Man: Prowler



I hate to drag on him too much but, as I've stated a couple of times, I think Miles is at this point a fairly boring character. He was introduced in 2011 and he doesn't even have a proper rogues' gallery at this point. His father has a more developed personality and motivations than he does.

I do think the one big exception to this was the 'Prowler' arc. To this day it's the high point of the series for me. Looking at again it works because this is one of the few times where Miles is dealing with something that isn't the equivalent to Peter Parker's scraps; it involves him on a very personal level. I think if Bendis has used this approach for the rest of the series it would be a much better scenario.

One Flashback from Invincible Iron Man #1

"There was a lot of chaos going on that spring and summer, and I wrote down in my notebook something about it being like the modern version [of a superhero origin]. Whoever rises above this and becomes that special thing that people look at as inspiration you know is exciting. Who knows who that will be? I literally wrote, right now there’s an 8-year-old kid surrounded by this nonsense and they're going to pull themselves out of this and make something special out of it. What's more heroic than that? It just seemed to me like a classic Marvel origin in a completely modern original setting. No one can argue that this doesn't happen because it happens. And wouldn't it be nice if something cool came out of all of this. That's where RiRi comes from." - Brian Michael Bendis
