Or they honestly believe that comic books are not worthy of good, polished stories. I don't care to recall how many times I've heard, "They're just comic books," used as an excuse for poor storytelling. I know comic book companies are capable of giving us better, and I want better.

Yeah...nighty was every kid out there that was weird in some way in their own minds...His weird hands were the hands of a kid that Dave actually knew and he wasn't exactly human but human enough to have a sorta displaced view on all the humans around him... not unlike the appeal of Spock in the original Star Trek... and every kid that felt alienated immediately identified with this character. But the key to his personality was that he never lost his sense of fun and adventure and doing right and doing good and helping others... heroism in it's purest form. I have heard some folks say tht Cyclops is the heart and soul of the X Men... and that is not true...Nightcrawler is the heart and soul of the X Men.

It is a hopeful thing to me that readers younger than myself... I assume you are younger than me...are willing to stand up and be counted when they see bad stuff going down... and will fight for the characters they have come to love and admire sooo much.
I am pleased and happy to pass the torch to you folks.
