    BUT, I've read things that hit every beat of what I keep saying I want to read... and still just don't have 'it'.

    Nauck? As in, Todd Nauck? Man, he was awesome back when he first worked for Image! And, his Wildguard stuff...I absolutely LOVED that stuff!

    My only issue with Todd Nauck's art so far in Nightcrawler is: His Amanda Sefton looks like one of those Bratz dolls.

    It's probably easier to take if you read Young Justice before Bratz Dolls were a big thing, and you're only peripherally aware of them even now.
    Like me.

    Well, I should clarify, IF I had a complaint about Todd Nauck's art, it would only be with that. But since I don't much care for the character anyway, I think it's kind of funny that she is the only female in the entire book that looks like a Bratz doll.

    Yes, you've mentioned not caring for her before.

    You must feel vindicated... of course, you'd feel moreso if they fixed Heather.

    So, I just received The Supervillian Book in the mail today. The companion piece to The Superhero Book, The Supervillain Book is 439 pages in length, and is by Gina Misiroglu and Michael Eury. I believe this is a first edition.

    I would have expected to see a few Alpha Flight villains in the book, but a scan of the contents page reveals none. Not even The Master of the World or The Great Beasts made it (those looking for the Just Okay Beasts, you are out of luck as well)!

    However, in flipping through a few pages, I noted Alpha Flight was mentioned in The Purple Man's article:

    "Kara Killgrave, alias The Purple Girl or Persuasion, a character from Alpha Flight, has purple skin and powers similar to Zebediah Killgrave's, and believes him to be her father."

    That is all I can find, without actually reading the whole book, cover to cover. And i am still not even halfway through reading The Superhero Book!

    To be fair, the book was published in 2006.

    It was always her origin, without question before. And that was before 2006.

    Hm...can anyone think, is there ever a time when the Purple Man admitted she was his daughter? It may be a stretch, but without a comic-book paternity test, it is Possible that the two just developed similar powers without being related.

    I don't think I've ever read a Purple Man story. I mean, sure, there was the one where he came back for Kara - but that was a dream.

    I don't know if I have those issues of X-Man.
