I could say that about you and Bill, but...no I couldn't, Bill was like a tall majestic oak tree stuck in amongst the weeds and thistles. :smt011

Can someone remind how and why Scott Lang is still alive? I thought he got 86'd by Wanda during Avengers Dissassembled some years back.

Came back during Avengers: The Children's Crusade.

Cassie pulled him out from the past, from just before he was killed, and brought him to the present.. only to then die right infront of him.

see, I don't know ANYTHING about this Ant-Man, yet the point 1 issue was so skillful that I now know all I need to know to care about this guy and like him. He's a cool Dad who loved his daughter, she grew up to be a superhero, got killed by Doc Doom, and her Dad is crazy with sorrow, but is too kind-hearted of a soul to do anything super violent to get his revenge. It's perfect.

Wow, that must really suck to be brought back from the dead by your daughter only to have her get killed before your very eyes.

I guess it would make you angry enough to draw a mustache on a picture of the person who killed her. :?

Lang should have punched Doom in the face for what he did.

And that's Scott Lang for you. There's a TPB out there now called 'Avengers: The Trial of Yellowjacket'. It's very overlooked, very unknown, but very important to Avengers mythos. This is nine or twelve issues of Hank Pym's fall and rise, this is the one where he backhands Jan. Lots of other stuff happens (Jan lets Stark climb on top of her, a dethroning moment of suck for both of them), but the backhand and Hank's descent are high-water marks. Into all this pops Avenger after Avenger, including Scott Lang.

One little sidetrip story detailed Scott taking Cassie to the circus, and it just so happened that Hawkeye was there too, and long story short they tun afoul of (you guessed it!) the Taskmaster. They fight, some stuff happens, Taskmaster slangs around', kinda Ben Grimm-lite, and Scott goes back to Cassie, who he's left on the roller coaster, happy as a clam so he could go fight the supervillains. Weekend Dad also has Cool Adventures!

It's really popular and in a lot of ways accurate to say the Marvel Universe is grim, dark, unnecessarily stupid or violent--all of which are true--but the existence of Scott Lang is proof that the opposite can be true, too. Good people live here (it's a theme the FF also do very well, which is why he functions best there), and they're fun to read about.

Because every so often, reading about Peter Parker's fuckin life gets really damn depressing.

I look forward to Fraction keeping the optimism alive in the Baxter Building.

I'm not a fan of Fraction but, to be fair, I haven't read any of those, so maybe that's why. His X-Men was really bad, though, as was Fear Itself. Maybe I'll give his Iron Man a try.


His Iron Fist and Hawkeye are both unbelievably great. Really hit it out of the park amazing. I never cared about either character before, but I can honestly say, now I do. Great work.

He seems to do better with a smaller group of characters, though. Large teams may not be his strong suit, but with only 4 characters in the FF, he may be able to rock it out.

This is like a 2/3 reunion this week, me back and fourthy back for more than a post. It would be cool if amlah were back too, but I don't think that will happen. I think I may know who he is on another site though (not OHG, I don't post there).
