    I find Byrne's work on AF and X-Men to feel far more real to me than anybody's work on the titles before or since. (Okay, there's no 'before' on AF.) It's more fun and natural than... well, most other comics period. Than any of the new age of 'realism' we've got to deal with, than any of that dark garbage that people rave about so much.

    Uh... That isn't to say I think everything he's ever done is great, or that he's the only one doing any good work out there. I've enjoyed a lot of other things, a lot of them more than his X-Men, some of them almost as much as his Alpha.

    I thought I was the only one who felt this way. Back in the early 2000's it was particularly annoying whenever I wished the writing of the 70's and 80's would return to have posters suggest kiddie comics may be more my speed, only to then have them swoon over supposed "mature" comics that read like teen fanfic. Having swearing and sex in a book may make it mature reading, but not necessarily mature writing.
    Byrne (and a few other writers of the time), however, was able to present stories that conformed to the comics code, but still included adult situations that dealt with sensitive, deep topics. They were good reading that conveyed complex ideas that weren't dumbed down to make it past the code. In fact the code forced the writers to up their game in my opinion.

    Thanks! Marvel has a bit of a Frankie Raye thing going; DC is kinda Wasp-ish.

    I think we're in a small but growing minority. I do prefer comics under the Code. These days, I keep reading writers who want to make the world more cynical, meaner, and nastier. If I got to speak to them, I'd say 'Congratulations! As far as I'm concerned, it's working. Every time I hear your name, I get cynical, mean, and nasty.'

    Wow. They killed off Margay Sorenson (Terry's mom), had a Skrull duplicate of Terry/Equinox, and made no mention of his daughter, Janet. G/A-F

    DC's "Equinox" looks interesting, from this excerpt.

    Ha, love it! There are a few writers I'd say that to.

    If we were to accept the Razer story - I could see that when they subjected Puck to the process of adamantium, that Razer would break free and decimate everyone - and Puck would regain conscious, an older man, now with adamantium, on a quest to find and recapture Razer...

    I could see this. Especially with Aurora's frequently fractured mental state; it'd fit - because I believe it helped break Jean's own mental state (between that, and the manipulation by Mastermind).

    Would just be one more retcon that James would have to eventually go through. As if he's not been through enough.

    What if Hudson was never killer in issue 12 and stayed in NY?

    What if Hudson had stayed with the government and developed his suite for the Military?

    Then Heather would have never became Vindicator.

    And that would have been a wonderful thing (for me, anyway).
