    Best fight scenes in a comic book movie

    The house fight in X-Men: The Last Stand (2006). Yes it's one-sided and over fast. It should be. The X-Men are up against a force they can't comprehend let alone match.

    Fantastic Four Reboot

    Re: Fantasic Four Reboot Thank you, Langsta.

    Most sympathetic and least sympathetic comic book movie villains?

    Least sympathetic: Satan, in Constantine (2005). As played by Peter Stormare, he was at least 99% evil with no redemption, possible, but he was still lively on screen, unlike a lot of other one-dimensional villains that were boring. Most sympathetic: Mystique, from the X-Men movies. We...

    Fantastic Four Reboot

    Re: Fantasic Four Reboot Kate Bosworth is Sue Storm come to life, and a good enough actress as she proved as Lois Lane in Superman Returns (2006). I have read she was even up for the part, but didn't get it. Maybe that was part of Tim Story's apparent drive to make the FF blacker, with Kerry...

    Which 2009 comics are you looking forward to?

    I hope that Ultimate Fantastic Four keeps going and that the quality picks up a little.

    What is better at updating and reimagining characters: the UU or Marvel Movies?

    The movies are giving us the best of both worlds and are the best overall. I say this even though I am a Fantastic Four fan and the Fantastic Four movie franchise falls short of what Iron Man, Spider-Man and X-Men fans are getting. I seem to be one of not many people that really likes blue...

    Ultimate Fantastic Four: Salem Seven (#54-57)

    I'm still buying every Ultimate Fantastic Four trade paperback that comes out, and still happy that my money is well spent. What I want is trades that are worth three or four stars out of five, not five star and one star trades alternating. I don't mind if the standard's sometimes...

    For anyone confused about UFF continuity issues...

    I hope nobody does anything about this problem. I hope they all ignore and forget it, or leave it there untouched as a monument to editorial incompetence. Right now, "that never happened" is all the solution I need. I only really care about the Ultimate Fantastic Four, and this is a complete...

    Ultimate Fantastic Four #41 (Spoilers)

    I also love how this story arc fits in to the overall direction that Ultimate Fantastic Four has. (And I like that Ultimate Fantastic Four has a strong direction.) We're doing the Cosmic Cube. So this should be made as great as possible. We shouldn't rush it - and the Devils trade adds...

    Ultimate X-Men gets chopped & Ultimates 4 issue cancelled

    OK, that doesn't sound too bad. All three regular Ultimate Universe comics may get gimmicks, but they should all keep going, regardless of rumors. It looks like I won't get my wish for Mike Carey to stay on Ultimate Fantastic Four forever though. But as far as I know, modern comics just...

    Ultimate X-Men gets chopped & Ultimates 4 issue cancelled

    Are there or have there been any Ultimate Universe titles that by normal standards should be (or should have been) matters of concern (yellow) or in major danger of cancellation or radical change (red)? How "stubborn" or "loyal" does Marvel seem to be with Ultimates titles?

    Ultimate X-Men gets chopped & Ultimates 4 issue cancelled

    Thanks, Ice. So, could you give me a rough idea of what might approximately be a: GREEN LIGHT ranking: if your favorite book is ranked around here or better, it should be safe. YELLOW LIGHT ranking: if your favorite book is ranked around here or better, but not to green light level, it's...

    Ultimate X-Men gets chopped & Ultimates 4 issue cancelled

    I don't know how to read those numbers. Can you explain? What matters to me is whether Ultimate Fantastic Four is selling well enough to be secure against cancellation. I'd also like it if The Ultimates keep going, but that comes out so rarely anyway that maybe the term "keep going" isn't...
