Conflict is needed for drama. And in a group, there is that one character who is around just to cause conflict with the other characters. WEST COAT AVENGERS #69 is an example of when there are two characters there just to cause conflict, and what happens when they fight each other.

Story by Roy Thomas, with art by Paul Ryan.

Reed Richards is quite wrong... a soviet nuclear tech who had been exposed to a seriously unhealthy dose of radiation while trying to prevent the meltdown of Chernobyl, only to find saboteurs on hand, has been brought to Doctor Estivez, the best hematologist in America, for a bone marrow transplant. But when she unhooks the sedative flow in his containment suit, the Avengers are faced with a man who has gained superpowers from the treatments already given him by the Russians but who still thinks he's trying to save Chernobyl.. Those powers include controls over Nuclear forces... clearly this isn't a situation that calls for the talents of Mr. Fantastic, good thing he stayed home

So Rage could answer the call )

Marvel artist Paul Ryan and John Byrne redid Iron Man's origin in 1991. They changed Vietnam to Southeast Asia, and the war is over. Tony Stark is investigating attacks on his factories, and it turns out Wong Chu is working for the Mandarin. The Mandarin wants Stark and Professor Yinsen to unlock the secrets of the alien rings. Things do not go according to plan.

So, in this last week's Fanart Thursday thread, the issue of "iconic" and what it means in the New 52 came up, and some people were complaining that Barry's new costume was just an altered version of Wally's. And I couldn't help but find this funny.

See, the issue of Barry and Wally having similar-looking costumes (to the point where it can be difficult to distinguish them from each other when their cowls are up) has been raised before...

Warning, lots of spoilers for Mark Waid's Flash run )

Boy I've been posting a LOT this weekend haven't I? And I'm not quite done yet.

August 12th is two sad anniversaries for comics fans; (Postscript - Having just heard of the passing of the legendary Joe Kubert today, that's THREE sad anniversaries for the 12th August)

Mark and Mike RIP )

And the meat of this post. DP7 #1 )

I was reading this old Thor graphic novel, with art by Paul Ryan and Vince Colletta, and you know what? It was totally sweet. Colletta is great. He was Gordon Lish to Kirby's Raymond Carver. His stuff is solid, readable, believable, and awesome. It's to the point. The expressions are strong. He doesn't waste your time, because in real life Colletta was a loanshark who had his studio in a whorehouse, and he did not have time to waste.

So here's to Vince Colletta, an interesting human being who produced fine art work and made comics a better place.

Comics Alliance had a great page about the upcoming "One Moment in Time" story, which explains the hows and whys of Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson not getting married in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN ANNUAL #21. Chris Sims points out that nearly the entire annual is Peter thinking he doesn't really want to get married, and then getting married.

Some of the original pages after the cut:

Maybe we shouldn't... Hey, something distracting! )

Since FALL OF THE HULKS involves Dr. Doom's Liddleville technology, I thought I would post some pages from a FANTASTIC FOUR issue that used Liddleville once again. Most other stories that use Liddleville take place outside of FF books, including the Micronauts and X-Force.
