As for seeing Dazzler in a movie it might happen. But I'm not in any hurry to revive the disco era. Allen Smith

Somebody on FB said they could see Hugh Jackman's "junk" in the scene where he's naked with his back to the camera. I missed that part. I like Hugh, but not in that way.:-) Allen Smith

Enjoyed the movie. For once I could understand the characters and their motivations, and the story was well written and not confusing. Hugh Jackman and Jennifer Lawrence, as well as the rest of the cast, are excellent. Just a tiny bit...

And, in the corporate world, money rules. When an actual comic book can make a billion dollars, then they'll change the movies to reflect the comics. Allen Smith

Re: Most over & under-rated Marvel writers of the Silver and Bronze Age (reply)
The most overrated Marvel writer of the Silver Age is Stan Lee.  It doesn't really take all that much talent to write dialogue after the story's been written, with the artist supplying the panel to panel continuity and plotting.  Sort of...

Re: What Film Have You Watched Recently? (reply)
Saw Noah in the theatres a few weeks ago. It was okay in some respects, but I thought it was overdone in other respects. Namely, the portrayal of Noah as some fanatic didn't sit well with me. I know that it wasn't intended to be a...

Re: Worst Jack Kirby Marvel Inker (reply)
It's a hard question. I think that Roussos/Bell could be sloppy in many of his ink jobs over Kirby, but he also did some good inking jobs as well. Same goes for Vinnie Colletta. He had certain qualities that made him good on strips...

I don't know that Lee would have controlled anyone's pay rate, he didn't have that power.  I'm pretty sure that Goodman relied on him to hire people, though, and decide who got what assignments and when.  So, some power there.     Allen...

Re: Where is Mark Evanier's Jack Kirby book (reply)
Agree that if anyone has any information about Kirby that they should bring it forward.  The same idea, of course, applies to Stan Lee.  I haven't seen a single person comment on the fact that just about every book on him is just the...
