why couldn't we do any of the three? If we want to review our favorite number 1 or review all the comics or whatever?

My only question is, how do you put it on the list as a final average? Or would you just skip it that week? :?

Well, theoretically in the Free-for-All you could review any old #1's that you wanted to review. :smt102

It'll be like Week 104 where there's no average listed.

Semi-seriously though, are there no investigative journalists left in the 616? Has Ben Urich retired or something?

Ben Urich is currently running his own Newspaper, called Frontline. He's been making sporadic appearances in Amazing Spider-Man as Peter's sometime boss, was in Hulk #600, and has been investigating Norman Osborn in Diggle's Dark Reign: Hawkeye (the final issue of which is still not out, what the heck?)

Ronin-hawkeye or Bullseye-hawkeye?

So, I don't read a lot of that, in the last year what has Urich managed to uncover do you know?

What Punchy said.

The last issue of ASM that we reviewed had a Frontline reporter working undercover inside Avengers Tower working to expose some of it. I have no idea if that's been followed up on since I haven't read any Spidey since 600.

So, spinning wheels then.

I mean all you'd have to do is interview any of the survivors or family of any number of people who've been crippled or killed.

I just can't find this status-quo credible in the least.

Bullseye-Hawkeye.

Urich has been digging around Norman's actions, and I think is close to discovering that his Hawkeye is actually Bullseye, but that mini hasn't finished yet.

In Amazing Spider-Man, the American Son storyline (which we reviewed an issue of) had Norah Winters, an employee of Frontline discovering some big dirt on Norms, but she was intimidated into sitting on the story.

I'm petitioning Webster's to make spinning wheels and Dark Reign synonyms.

I'm pretty sure the end of Dark Reign was never going to be due to investigative journalism, it's going to be a big fight. This isn't a job for Urich, it's one for Captain America.

It's just been going on too long to find that believable. Like my edit said:

I just can't find this status-quo credible in the least.

Also, if this Norah character did that she shouldn't be a fictional journalist.
