EDIT: His Superman stories are, in hindsight, fairly mediocre.
I read his Man of Steel series a long time ago, but that's it. I've heard about some cringeworthy stories, tho (Superman drugged into doing porn?). His Fantastic Four run is still exceptionally great and he's capable of some breathtaking large-scale panels, but beyond that he doesn't appeal.

Yeah, never read the porn story, but I've heard a summary of it, and it sounds fucking cringeworthy.

I dig his FF run, though it's no patch on either Lee/Kirby or even Waid/Weiringo or Hickman's run in hindsight either. I think his best work was X-Men, and he should just suck it up and deal with the fact he was second fiddle to Claremont. He needs someone to rein him in even in the best circumstances.

Oh, and he was a huge baby to retcon out Arcade lighting a match on Doom as just a Doombot. That was one of the best moments in Supervillain history. I'm glad someone re-retconned his dumb idea of Lockjaw being a former human being as a prank played on Ben in retaliation. Tool.

I place it only behind Lee & Kirby, but it's impossible to better what they did. They were Lennon/McCartney on FF.

I'm just not enough of a Claremont fan to jerk that wiener. It's too over-the-top melodrama for my taste, but one can't deny it's lasting influence.

He obviously kept an enemies list like Nixon. With all that spite, how was he not a member of PiL in the early years?

I thought the "Ray Gange Memorial IMCT Toilet Stall" was the name of Inder's secret invite-only sex dungeon subforum on the old board? :idea:

Can't remember Ray being on here. What's the story there?
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

Anyone remember that guy mustafabingun who was so Limey even the Limeys couldn't understand what magic make-believe language he was speaking? I feel like we've been missing an "Even mustafabingun makes more sense than. . ." metric all these years to properly quantify degrees of wrongness beyond-the-pale of whatever Heston ate for breakfast this morning.
I remember the username but nothing about his/her posts. So, worse than the indictment of public schooling that was michaelt?
More like: sounds like cheerfully drunken Welsh but not nearly enough vowels, a few too many apostrophe abbreviations, too much familiarity with London landmarks, and ceded the sheep-boinking crown to 101 far too easily to be from the sticks. Possibly a native Klingon ostracized by own kind for being too good-natured and unwilling to wage war against salad cream.

He was nice. Or at least I think he was. Nobody who says "mate" that frequently in close proximity to multiple exclamation marks could ever not be nice.
"oi mate tahts teh pisstake !!1" was my attempt to parody mustafabigun's argot.

He disappears up into the mountains and is never seen again. Believe me, he'll never be seen again. He'll live forever because of that."

There are tons of people who have left, and I never had them on FB or if I did, they left that too. Remember modskin?

I periodically dip out due to being busy and the like. I still value this place and all the people. I can't believe y'all stayed friends with me despite how much of an asshole I used to be.
