Exactly when was the last time the Marvel superheroes have been saints?
Wolverine's been killing people and aliens and things since the 80s, and everybody knows it. And everybody who's asked him to kill something or needed him to kill something has been just fine with it. It's been a long, long time since Young Kitty Pryde was scared of Big, Bad Wolverine.
Tony Stark's been a dick since "Demon in a Bottle."
Luke Cage and Iron Fist weren't running "Heroes for Charity."
Peter Parker's "With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility" came a day late and a dollar short if you were Ben Parker.
Nice job, Reed Richards, Super-Genius, taking your girlfriend, her brother and your best friend up in space and getting them all mutated. Maybe you shouldn't have rounded up on those calculations.
Way to go, Charles Xavier, creating your Child Soldiers -- what was Bobby Drake, 13 years old, when he was running around fighting Magneto and the Blob? Good work there, Charles! Send those teens into the Danger Room -- that'll toughen them up! If you can dodge a ball, you can dodge a wrench!
Hey, Avengers! How about letting Immortus impregnate Carol Danvers one more time? Hey, Carol Danvers! How about you lay off the booze?
Hey, Clint Barton! Maybe you could try not sleeping with every superhero chick you run into!
*Sniff, sniff* "Damn it, Diana...If I'd known they would trade us in for a JT Krul-written Captain Atom and "The Savage Hawkman," I'd have let Superboy-Prime destroy all reality.""Superman flies and is really strong...what the fuck else do you need to know?!"
