CAPTAIN AMERICA #3: Steve's childhood and other stuff

CAPTAIN AMERICA: STRANDED IN DIMENSION Z was a very sci-fi pulp way to start the most recent Captain America series. And throughout the series are various flashbacks to Steve's 1920s-30s childhood in the Lower East Side, complete with the whole "Steve's father was an alcoholic" that they first revealed in an Iron Man story, IIRC.
Anyway, here's some more about Steve's childhood.

The Bowery Boys were never like this )

UNCANNY X-MEN #200: Pro-mutant humans?

We rarely see pro-mutant humans in the X-books, but while many people hate and fear mutants, some are willing to go the protest-and-sign route to *support* mutants.
Here's an older example of the X-men getting some support in France during Magneto's trial.

You don't deserve the X-Men )

Wakandans are assholes

As requested in my previous post, here's the scene from Hudlin's run on Black Panther where he reveals that Wakanda has the cure for cancer (nevermind how little sense that makes) but refuses to share it.

Because they're assholes )

JMS vs Steve Wacker: It's On



Hoo boy, this is getting good. JMS posted a graph showing the sales on Amazing Spider-Man have fallen since his departure (and the start of the BND status quo) on his Facebook, and needless to say Steve Wacker ain't too happy about it.

Too much to summarize, so you can read all about it here. What I find hilarious is how Wacker points out how they had the most successful issue of the last 15 years, but doesn't mention that it's the one with Barack Obama on the cover right after he was elected. Anyone want to guess why that was a huge success?

For legality...
