(I am sure this is not new to anyone who reads Marvel regularly...but I thought a few might get a kick out of it.)

It puts things in perspective...apparent TWiP! posted in 1965??
 
Yeah, and they had to do all that with a series of punch cards. Only the die-hard contrarians would take the necessary week to encode those cards and send them in via Pony Express.
 
Ahahahah I was dying, almost crying laughing, but I think the tear might be because of the angle I've kept my head at. The Watchmen one... soooo funny.
 
Love it. Seen it over at Jinxworld a few months back. So very true.
 
hahaha i wonder how many of the sagas we read now wouldive been considdered "classic" if we wereint online enough to ***** about them...


...then again
 
Those were from the extremely lame and crappy What the? redeux.
 
I thought those were really funny myself. I didn't notice the THWIP posting before, though
 
Some of them are actually valid complaints. Letting people know what's in continuity and what's not, for example. Some don't make any sense. Anyone with any taste would enjoy the fact that Kirby was drawing practically everything back then, and they'd be damn grateful for the privilege of seeing his art so often.

Most of them are pretty funny, though. :)
 
I love the one complaining about the title change and costume change. It seems things such as human nature never changes.
 
I forgot how funny some of those were:

"What's a spoiler?" :D

I guess he couldn't find the cap key back than either.
 
LOL @ the Claremont one....
 
"Tigra is an Avenger? Who's next, Jessica Drew?!"

Talk about foresight:D.
 
Those were really funny actually. Good find.
 
Maybe we should make some of our own:

"February 17th, 1966

TheSumOfGod: Trust me, guys. They're gonna totally ret-con this whole storyline at some point in the future. Gwen is gonna have sex with Norman Orborn before she even met Peter, and give birth in secret to superpowered twins. It's all a conspiracy!

ShadowBoxing: These stupid predictions of yours are getting boring, Sum. That stuff will NEVER happen.

TWIP!: What's a ret-con?
"

:D :D :D
 
I love those, especially the one about Tigra and Jessica Drew joining Avengers, and the other Avengers one where it picks on Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, and Hawkeye. Those are awesome.

I kind of agree on the Watchmen one. I hated that pirate comic narrative

Ummm comic book world is hardly reality....I don't put anything past these writers.:o

Still my favorite one is the Watchmen one by far...If I wanted to read a friggin pirate comic :D
"Who watched the Hype" indeed.
 
1965
ShadowBoxing: Whats with this friggin Angel/Jean thing. Can't Cyclops catch a friggin break geez. Cyclops and Jean deserve to be with eachother....I hate stupid love triangles, they don't belong in comics :mad:
 
Wait a minute. There was NO INTERNET in the sixties?? WTF?
 
It's "What if the Internet existed in 1965/75/85?"
