Day 5: Spider-Woman

Wednesday, January 17th, 2007

I’m not big on saying “I told you so,” but I told you so. One day after the lame-o “Meet the new New Avengers” article on Newsarama about the oh-so-mysterious Wolverine, Bendis is back in form with some great observations on Spider-Woman, a character we all know is near and dear to him. He said, […]

Okay, this is stretching it a little…

Everyone knows I’m the biggest Bendis fan this side of anywhere, but today’s “Meet the New Avengers” installment is officially lame. I mean, it’s Wolverine. Guess we don’t know anything about HIM! I’m sure it will be better tomorrow. Seriously, it just about has to be! Bendis said, ““Another character not in the crux of […]

Bendis New Avengers series of articles on Newsarama

Monday, January 15th, 2007

Newsarama has been running a get-to-know-the-new-New-Avengers series of articles with Bendis. Mainly it’s been about what’s going to happen after Civil War, when there are two teams of Avengers (New Avengers features one, Mighty Avengers will feature the other). This has links to the first three of the articles in this series. More are coming […]

Bendis… Even in New Jersey

Monday, January 15th, 2007

NJ.com picked New Avengers #22, which featured Luke Cage, as the Best Single Issue of 2006. It’s been clear for a long time that the mighty BMB had a soft spot for the tough-skinned guy (Alias, The Pulse, Daredevil, you name it), so it’s no surprise to me that he really nailed it in this […]

It’s not like the third thing I desire more than anything isn’t obvious. I mean, Hasn’t everyone wanted this at at least once in their lives? The third is to be, well, a superhero, sort of like Superman, in that I could turn time back by reversing earth’s rotation. If i could turn back time, […]

I actually think that the third thing would be that he wants to have sex with some girl, most likely someone like Dina. Thats the feeling I got after he told Kyra about the things he wanted, and clearly said if he told her what the third thing was he would never get it.

I believe that Fanboy’s third thing is to be loved by someone. Throughout the book, it’s made clear that he has self-esteem issues. And from the description of his family, it sounds as though he doesn’t think they love him. His dad’s never around, his mom doesn’t understand, and his step-dad acts as though he […]

The realistic dialogue makes it possible to pull a conclusion from fanboy for his third thing. Though it’s hard to decide, I believe that it wasn’t something he always knew for himself. I believe that his third thing was actually him having a slight if not full fledged crush on Kyra, which he denied; since […]

The third thing he desires most, is by far the greatest of the three, is self-worth and confidence. Through out the entire novel it is clear that he has self-esteem issues, so it would make the most sense for him to want that. Obviously it is something non-materialistic since his first two desires are and […]

I believe the third thing that Fanboy want’s would have be a girlfriend, which he kind of…almost..sort of had one with Kyra. I mean think about it,he is this loner comic book nerd at school, who’s only friend is a jock, while everyday he spends the days thinking about Dina Jurgens, and she does not […]
