    Heh, I say it in jest.

    A lot of the time I approach stuff from a purely business point of view so I kinda like that people disagree with me as although what I'm saying is correct in a financial manner it's reassuring to have people with creativity and passion say what if...?
    Plus I'm the only active mod a lot of the time, so it's good to be a central figure of hatred and rule with an iron fist rather than have people flaming each other.

    Not that there is hatred, dictatorship or flaming, but you get the picture.

    I still love you all

    That's reasuring to hear! Nicest dictator EVER. Didn't even know I was getting dictated!

    In all seriousness, as long as you keep that open mind regarding the 'what ifs' and passion of fans, you'd make a perfect editor for a run of AF. You know the characters well and have some care for integrity, but you 'get' the business part of it.

    It's a tricky one.
    I've got some close friends in a few of the non-big two, but still well known, companies and I've been privvy to a lot of the insider workings, on top of my time in the retail side of things and while I probably could do well in editorial generally I think if that I did I wouldn't be able to enjoy comics for pleasure as it'd just be work to me.
    Maybe that's the problem with editors of company-owned comics generally.

    I havent been impressed with Loeb's work in years. It's crazy some of his work in DC was so groundbreaking and amazing, but in Marvel I just cant get behind it. It's awesome he used Wild Child and gave him credibility, but taking away Walter's and borderline retconning his orgins? Bah! Thankfully their retconning the retcon

    I'll put my hand up and say I've gone back on this.
    I've liked the way that post AvX the title has focused a lot more on the new kids and I'm enjoying the title.
    I'm still not enjoying it as much as a lot of people, but I'm going to start picking it up regularly.

    Yay! Glad to see you come around.
    It's just been an enjoyable title for me, one of a small and dwindling number that reminds me of why I got into comics in the first place.

    When it focuses on the new kids it's great, when it focuses on the teachers... not so much...

    I think I've mostly read issues focussing on the kids. I don't have the first 14 or so issues.

    OK so the official word is that Wild Child is alive, healing factor being the explanation. Official Index says so.

    ok great, he did appear after his "death" but I was wondering if it was a mistake. That's good news at least
