Can't honestly say this board is like a pub. What, are we all drunks? My right to free speech ends where your nose begins. And vice versa. If free speech is subject to any idiot causing violence because he doesn't like it, it's not really free speech, is it?

And, disagree with Krigstein about the quality of many of those Marvel comics. Which great artistic talent like Steve Ditko, Jack Kirby, Wally Wood, and others were responsible for, largely uncredited by Stan Lee.

No, what's old is Lee's line of BS. Krigstein worked in the Marvel Bullpen and knew exactly what he was talking about.

Saw Spectre last Saturday with my sons, the movie is a very nice one. Except for SPOILER ALERT where Bond rides off into the sunset with his lady love. That's uncharacteristic of him. Still better than having them die at the end of each movie, though.

Stan Lee always made sure he spelled his name right, though, and always put it first. Odd that you cretins would accuse Kirby of claiming credit for everything when Lee was the one obsessed with putting his name on everything. Carry on.
