@blueu: I agree with you. Pre-New 52 Wally and New 52 Wally are like Helena Wayne and Helena Bertinelli, two completely different characters.

I got sad when Wally was gone, I grew up watching him on the Justice League cartoon, but I started to like Barry. Then, Daniel West came and I thought it was a nice nod to the Wally West character, because he was a West trying to reboot time for his family (it was a common fan theory that Wally would return as a villain with this motiff). Then, a totally new character came, they named him Wally, and I thoght "What? Wally is gone, let him rest in piece forever lost in the waves of the multiverse". They should have come with a new name and he shouldn't be Iris nephew, then I would like the character a lot more.

By the way, I love the Iris West casting on the Flash series.

@csguterres: It kind of seems like "real incest" is a trickier subject. Same-sex marriage and mixed-sex marriage aren't so different as it's just consenting adult people who got to know each other. I think some of the concerns are around being legal guardians or in a position of power/authority.

It may be that some people don't feel educated enough on the matter to declare a real opinion either way. I'm certainly not any kind of expert on this subject, so there's not much point in me trying to say any more about it.

To clarify, are you calling yourself a bigot?

I'm sorry, I expressed myself in a confusing manner.

I consider a bigot someone who call others bigots when he himself is a bigot and just doesn't know it. Ok, confusing again.

A persons claims to be against homosexuality. I will say to this person "Every consenting adult has the right to marry, and if your religion or you are against it, then you are a bigot and is spreading hate. You should be ashamed of your opinion." Then another person claims to support incest. I immediately say "Incest between consenting adults is wrong, because everyone knows it's sick and disturbing. Any persons who does this should go to jail. You should go to a mental institution just because you support it. Did you f***** your sister, you sick retard?"

If you're using the Bible to judge people, you are a bigot. But if I'm using the masses' opinion to judge people, I'm right and I'm open-minded. A person who thinks like this is the real bigot to me.

At the end of the day, there are things we simple aren't comfortable with, and things we don't care at all. There aren't really "good reasons". Let's think about the power/authority thing you mentioned. When a rich man marries a poor woman probably there will be a power/authority aspect in the relationship, but nobody would suggest we ban these relationships. Let's think about children with genetic diseases. Of course there is a higher risk, but there is always adoption (just like gay people can adopt) and maybe the couple don't even want children.

Do you want to know my opinion on these subjects?

I see nothing wrong on cousin relationships. But I am personally against incest (sibling/sibling, parent/offspring). I am not going to lie to you and just pretend that I have a very good rational reason. I'm just personally not okay with it - probably because I was raised with beliefs that aren't compatible with this. But I don't think that because of it, people should be mocked, or sent to mental institutions, or jail. Even though I don't like it at all, I do think if everyone involved is happy they should have some legal rights to do whatever they want. Just like gays, I don't think it's "normal", I don't encourage it, but I do think they should have their rights to do whatever they want. But if anyone else thinks differently, I respect them.

@csguterres: O.K., I can believe that people would say that. Though I don't know if that's really an opinion limited to people who support gay marriage.

It isn't limited to them, but I think they are the worst case.

Forget about cousin marriage (which isn't even incest in every other country of the world and is actually allowed by the Bible), let's talk about real incest between consenting adults (which I don't support).

Ask anyone "do you support same-sex marriage?", the average person answer will be "yes, because I'm open-minded". But ask the same guy "do you support incest between consenting adults?", the answer is probably "no, because it's sick". At least a religious person will answer both questions honestly with "no, because the Bible forbids it".

I can understand a person who wants to give every consenting adult the same rights in marriage, and I can understand a person who wants to apply the Biblical rules, I just can't understand a person who defend something (gay marriage) pretending to be "open-minded" but in fact is just another undercover bigot following the masses.

@csguterres: Is there some kind of research that shows this?

I don't know, but I have seen this A LOT on the internet "gay marriage is cool, cousin marriage is disgusting" People aren't nice, they just love what the media says they should love, and focus all the hating on something different (of course there are exceptions)

I know about this stuff because one of my best friends is the child of a cousin couple - and he is 100% normal by the way

Most of the time, the same people that defend same sex marriage are against basic human rights that are recognized in the whole world, like cousin marriage, using the same crap arguments "I don't like it, it's disgusting". Just plain hypocrisy.

Two weeks ago, when people were all "Bendis foreshadowed Bucky's actions ten years ago", I said that the Bendis thing was just random stuff that was never meant to be, and Bucky was simply misunderstood. I'm glad to be right, Bucky is one of my favorite characters and I would hate to see him ruined.

I think the real Nick Fury is hiding something, and Bucky killed a LMD. Remember "Nick Fury" (the LMD) saw nothing earlier in the issue. Bucky is going to open the LMD up (that's why he cut off the head) to find out Fury's secrets. Bucky is not a villain.

Bendis wasn't foreshadowing anything. That panel was just random stuff from some years ago.

She isn't really dead... Her "death" in Uncanny Avengers was never intended to be permanent. I think Wolverine himself died in Uncanny Avengers too. The Earth was destroyed. But at the end of the current arc, everything will be fixed.
