That superheroes show on SciFi

So I watched a bit of it tonight.

Stan Lee chewed them up and down about giving away their secret identities.

Apparently no superhero EVER gives away that real name.

Have you EVER seen Spider-Man give away that critical bit of info?

Well, uh, sorry, Stan. Yes.

So apparently thanks to Civil War, Spider-Man is not a superhero now.

Also, you know those shmucks called the Fantastic Four?

They don't have secret identities.

Who created those guys anyway?

Oh yeah. Stan Lee.

I'm suspecting that part of the rules these ACTORS are following (oh come on, all of them are!) includes "Don't blow the concept by pointing out that the figurehead moderator broke every one of the rules we're making you follow."

Or pointing out that some of the challenges are contradictory. Tyveculus nearly got booted for being dishonest and blowing sunshine up Stan's ass...yet he DOES get booted for being honest about Lemuria's (pronounced Lumeria) unstable personality.

I'm too busy laughing my booty off at your icon to read further.

I'd agree with him and The Incredibles: it's the single worst thing a hero can do. The Civil War decision: terrible and idiotic. One reason I'm slowly pulling away from comics.

Well, arguably, it's OK if you're Fantastic (and have a fortress skyscraper and infinite wealth) but for most folks, it's simply not safe for people around you.

The argument about cops and firemen and politicians handling it just fine doesn't wash for two reasons. Politicians aren't heroes, generally, and they have guards. Cops and firemen and other public servants aren't highly visible targets whose families should be gone after... and in the cases where they are, what do we get? UNDERCOVER cops.

Civil War is an interesting thing to investigate, but what it's done? BAD idea. Totally ruins Spider-Man, for instance.

The nifty thing about comics is that if you wait a year or so, this too shall pass.

Yeesh, I just had the utterly depressing realization that I have been reading Marvel for over two-thirds of my life.

I started reading Marvel comics in 1962 ... I was about five or six at the time.

Doing the math... 9/10 of my life.

Because "Who Wants To Be A Campy Parody Of 1960s Superheroes" was too long to fit in the logo.

Well he went off on Feedback in ep 2 for making fun of Ty'Veculus...ignoring that He had the Human Torch making fun of Thing....and the Torch making fun of Spider-Man...and the Torch making fun of Iceman...
