Which new poster here is Byrne?
"Why are you pointing your screwdrivers like that? They're scientific instruments, not water pistols."
"Oh, the pointing again! They're screwdrivers! What are you going to do? Assemble a cabinet at them?"
"Are you capable of speaking without flapping your hands about?"
""Timey" what? "Timey wimey"?"

In the last 15 years I'd say. Next Men was probably his last good work.

I loved the Avengers West Coast run, I grew up on that. It was very engaging, it actually made me look forward to a book to see what was going to happen next month to month. I hate how fanboys like chapp or whatever that guys name is who commented earlier have to make their opinions like they are the word of God. Although this thread is three years old so he is probably working at Walmart as manager by now. Essentially it sounds like Marvel ripped off Byrne's idea with House of M. They basically used Scarlet Witch's powers to negate reality and create an alternate timeline that only 'Layla Miller' could remember. I love how Marvel essentially steals writers ideas and gets away with it. Apparently it wasn't good enough for the 90's run but worked for the 2000's.

Chubbles may be a known philanderer with women married to lawyers, but he is no thief. At least i don't think Mexicans thieve.

You gotta love it when politics screw up a comic series. Gives slap fodder for folks to slap Chap three years after a post. That has got to be a record here. :lol:
