X3

Her Worshipfulness muddled through the weekend a weakened state. Wrapped in a cocoon of archaic blanket, she sat in the Playstation room coughing and watching me play X-men: Legends, the poor dear. She held up well, with one exception: every time Emma Frost appeared, she wheezed insults at the screen, making some very bold statements about her promiscuity. You see, HW had read that Emma broke up the long-standing relationship between Cyclops and Jean Grey, and this was simply more than she could forgive.

Damn Marvel — soap operas with superpowers. You just don’t have these problems with the JLA.

    What do you call Smallville? Birds of Prey? That old Flash show from the nineties?

    DC has its fair share of estro, too. Nothing as lame assed as Cyclops, though.

    I call them "derivative".

    I agree that there is a touch of the warm and more than a skosh of the fuzzy in DC, especially recently — but compare Lois flirting with Bats to get a scoop to optic blasts being used to etch "Scott & Jean 4 Ever" in treebark. Come on now.

    The whole thing with Marvel is to talk about how it feels to be a superhero, Spidey being the prime example. And you know how I feel about the Whining Webslinger.
