“Stan Lee the guy that invented the super-hero in the 20th century” Huh?? What?!?!? I guess
Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel, Bob Kane etc didn’t exist in Mark Waid’s reality……
again wtf and Babs just sits there and nods….sigh and I do like Mark Waid but WTF seriously
Absolutely love Mark Waid. He's just so enthusiastic about, not just the characters themselves, but the breadth of the mythos surrounding them. His Spider-Man he's writing right now isn't the most complex story arc, but it is fun as hell and I can't wait to see how it ends.
Intrigued to see all three of these titles (specifically Soldier Zero). I don't really get into many titles outside of Marvel and DC, but I'm excited to see how these turn out.
" I guess Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel, Bob Kane etc didn’t exist in Mark Waid’s reality…… "While what they did was also impressive. Stan Lee was the first to give his heroes real personal flaws and real life situations. They had actual lives that readers could identify with. Superman had a near perfect life and was invincible to harm, Though Batman had some serious drama in his past. He was also independently wealthy and didn't have to work a day in his life.
What are you expecting of her? It's an interview about coming projects. Not an interrogation. She asks a question, then lets him answer it to the extent he wishes. It's the polite thing to do when you ask someone a question is to let them finish.

Ah, M.A.N.T.I.S. I think I've caught one or two syndicated episodes back when there was a UPN. :P
" Solider Zero reminds me of a TV show that was on years ago. For the life of me the name is escaping me. It was about a man who was crippled after the riots that followed the verdict of the police officers that beat Rodney King. He was either beat of hit with a stray bullet. This man uses a power suit to be a super hero.
Lumbly's character, Dr. Miles Hawkins, was a wealthy, mild-mannered doctor who was shot in the spine during a riot while helping a kid. He claimed he was shot by a cop and filed a lawsuit but lost the suit. He decided against appealing. Paralyzed from the waist down, he uses his company's resources to invent a powered exoskeleton that not only enables him to walk but gives him superhuman abilities. He utilizes a vast array of technology, including a large underwater lab and a hovercraft called the Crysalid to fly around the city. With his newfound power, he vows to fight crime and assumes the hidden identity of the vigilante "M.A.N.T.I.S." (Mechanically Augmented Neuro Transmitter Interactive System).
The bulk of the series' run depicted the M.A.N.T.I.S. operating in a vigilante role, frequently pursued by police, and battling industrialist Solomon Box (Brion James / Andrew J. Robinson). Poor ratings led to an extensive retooling of the concept. Midway through the show's run, minor characters were jettisoned, and more fantasy adventure elements were incorporated into the premise, including parallel universes, super-villains, and monsters. In the series' final installment, Miles Hawkins (and Lt. Maxwell) meets his death disposing of an invisible, prehistoric dinosaur.
" @FoxxFireArt: Jesus! That is a big ass comment. =/ "I know. I was originally just writing my thoughts as I watched the video. Looking at it now. It seems rather silly.
