Last month Dan Slott became a legend after he gave OH! Entertainment contributor Zechs the Chokeslam from Hell in the Outhouse News Stand forum. Now the  Amazing Spider-Man writer has done the same to DC on Twitter while explaining to another Twitter user how Marvel NOW will be different from DC’s New 52.

“@NippyNouse with Marvel NOW everything that happened yesterday and the year before STILL happened. All of those comics still "count." The Marvel NOW initiative is about what happens next...

What you're getting with Marvel NOW is Marvel's most high profile creators kicking off new, epic runs on Marvel's biggest characters.

This isn't a fly-by-night deal. You're not going to see a creator on a book for four or six issues and then-- whoosh-- a new creative team gets slapped in. What you're getting here is a bunch of writers and artists who are committed not just to exploding out of the gate with big, bold new ideas-- but to also make those the starts of legendary runs.

That's Marvel NOW!”

Slott obviously won’t be on DC Co-Publisher Dan Didio’s Christmas card list after this. But this shouldn’t matter, as Santa ought to give him that pony he always wanted this year for that tweet. That and The Hobgoblin's head wrapped in a pretty red bow, of course.
