X-Factor, Journey Into Mystery, and Red She Hulk are all going away off the top of my head.

They did add Avengers AI- diversifying with more inorganic characters.

My joke went over people's heads like a 747 leaving Heathrow.

What about left-handed people? My grandmother got her hand smacked with a ruler every time she used her southpaw in class. At work, I'm forced to use right handed scissors and notebooks because my kind isn't worth special-ordering equipment for.

I have noticed some heroes appear to be left-handed (I'm looking at a marvel ad right now that shows Captain America throwing the shield with his left). But the heroes sure don't advertise it. Artists throw the little touches in on the sly, like they're part of a left-handed underground resistance. We lefties represent 10% of the population! Why aren't 1/10 superheroes left-handed? Are you telling me that left-handedness doesn't sell comics?

*edit: originally abbreviated "ad" as "add". Hackneyed!
