    Greetings I am Uatu....Instead of posting grievences about todays writers lets take a look into the past, a past where message boards reigned twenty years earlier

    (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.

    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.

    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
