All I remember is the 'Death of Captain Marvel' .....


Message:

Captain Marvel was a big plot driver for Stan Lee in the early days. I'm not sure if it was before my time but all I remember was he got cancer and died.

and

This was a shocking story in the day as we were all going to get cancer and die eventually.

The other big plot point was the Skrulls and Kree fighting a galactic war with the humans on the side. Big stuff for such a little comic.

Disney is doing to the unique tales of the Marvel universe what it did to the tales of the Star Wars universe. which is to say ... not good things.

The other Captain Marvel ... aka ... Shazam ... will be the big hit of the year. Innocent and funny ... just like the books.

I can recognize none of the actors except to note how small they appear in the roles of children's heroes. I'm assured they are great by the experts but I can't be bothered to remember their names.

The ultimate irony of course is that such a serious and lauded artist as Ms. Larson tries to be, she has to make her bones by stuffing herself into a tight little costume and playing to the unwashed.

Doesn't anyone make Ivanhoe anymore?

Yours,

   Iron Surfer
