"That scar grows so large that it affects his entire brain, and Doctor Doom becomes the ultimate villain. He’ll do anything to anybody. Why? Because you haven’t got that scar! He has! And who do you think you are, not having a scar like that? And that’s the point of Doctor Doom. It’s a totally human viewpoint. It’s an inferiority complex." - Jack Kirby

"Doom is the kind of guy who’ll come over to your house for tea, shake your hand, be very friendly, and at the same time his henchmen are kidnapping your mother in the kitchen, while he chats with you in your living room. He’s based on somebody I know, but I won’t say who." - Jack Kirby

"Dr. Doom is paranoid. He thinks he’s ugly and he wants the whole world to be like him. Dr. Doom is the fox who had his tail cut off, and he’s trying to talk the whole world into having their tails cut off so when everyone has his tail cut off, he becomes the most handsome fox. That’s ridiculous, because paranoids are insane people who never get their way. Hitler tried it, you know." - Jack Kirby

Okay, so... long story short, I, a lifelong DC fan, have spent the last several weeks trying to jump into Marvel. Partly for bragging rights, partly because I'm genuinely curious as to whether Marvel has told stories DC genuinely couldn't. I've tried several jumping-on points so far: the first couple issues of The Avengers, the issues of Daredevil leading up to the legendary Frank Miller run, and a couple of the earlier DC/Marvel crossover GNs. Each of them had their moments, but none were really things I'd willingly go back to.

Then a buddy suggested that maybe I should start where it all began: with Marvel's first family. Of course, he then immediately clarified that he meant a modern take on it - preferably by someone whose name begins with "H" and rhymes with "Rickman" - but by then I'd already went and gotten myself the first ten issues of the Lee/Kirby Fantastic Four. Having read through about six of them, I remain tentatively interested in seeing where the King and his faithful self-promoter sidekick is going with all this.

Wait, this was supposed to be a short story, wasn't it? Shit. Basically, I'm looking for suggestions - any suggestions - as to which parts of the MU I should try out next. In the meantime, have this activity I shamelessly ripped off film critic and all-around hilarious Internet reviewer Tim Callahan, in which I determine which page in each of the first four FF issues best sums up what I love about the issue as a whole.

As discussed on the BATMAN: GHOSTS post, Peter Parker was a friendless outcast in high school and became an angry misanthrope in college. It really wasn't until Steve Ditko left and John Romita Sr took over the SPIDER-MAN art that Peter mellowed out

I'll be posting the three-part story about the Kingpin's conflict with Schemer, which is notable for introducing Vanessa and Richard Fisk, the Kingpin's family.

I'm watching the Spider-Man 3 blu-ray and noticing certain... flaws. The commentary says Gwen Stacy was supposed to be in the taxi during the climax, not Mary Jane Watson. But for some reason, Mary Jane was used instead. A way to fix this is for Gwen *and* Mary Jane to be in danger during the climax. And here's a steal from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade to complete things.

Gwen: Wait a minute. These two kidnapped us as bait for Spider-Man!
MJ: I *KNOW* GWEN!!!
Gwen: ...It's a new experience for me.
MJ: Really? Happens to me all the time.

Further down a bit, the subject of an X-Men post changed to J. Jonah Jameson. So, after the cut, is a page where we see that J. Jonah Jameson isn't *that* bad a guy when he starts a protest over video cameras all over Manhattan. Ah, the 1960s.

Why did Bolivar Trask create the Sentinels? Well, there's a theory about that, involving Bolivar's son, Larry. It isn't mine though. Also, a bunch of comic trivia!

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!

No, really, it actually happened.

I realize that when you're trying to write a family friendly comic about WWII, there are times where it's hard to know where to draw the line, but, seriously, Stan, what  were you smoking that day?

No, the title is not a reference to Sins Past or any of that. Today we will look back at Gwen Stacy during the Steve Ditko days on Spider-Man. Gwen was a much different character during Ditko's days.
