Stir the Pot Saturday: Week 12
Welcome back, everyone! Just a quick reminder of what our goal for each and every Saturday is: Stirring the pot is the act of causing trouble for the sake of your own amusement. So we here at Comic Booked would like to formally invite you to discuss, debate, and start some shit talkin’ about the characters, the creators, and the storylines given to us from the industry we all know and love, hate, and love to hate. So let’s quit wasting time and start the mud (or web) slinging!
This Saturday’s question: What is the dumbest comic book retcon you can remember?
Does Superboy-Prime’s temper tantrum-induced reality-changing wall-punches still have you shaking your head? Did Mary Jane Watson-Parker’s deal with Mephisto completely ruin the character of Spider-Man for you? Are you still convinced that Magneto really was Xorn? Does the New 52 seem too different for you to ever truly get behind? Is the Summers Family Tree something that you have spent hours trying to figure out, what with all of the various clones, time travel changes, and alternate realities? Or are you okay with the occasional retcon?
So go forth and debate! But be sure to back up your responses. Don’t be scared. And don’t give up. After all, no one likes a quitter. And you’re not a quitter, are you?
