    DC should really send Marvel a fruit basket for all the work they are doing getting folks to jump ship and check out Rebirth.

    Don't think it's anything Marvel is doing - people just really miss good DC comics, and granted while not all of it is stellar stuff, people are following it because of the direction that Johns set in Rebirth - a more hopeful and legacy-filled DC. Meanwhile Marvel just seems more interested in rehashing the post CW dark era.

    Yeah and when they go dark it may get a quick boost, but people quickly get sick of it, real life is dark enough. People read comics for escapism.
    Plus I think everyone is sick of heroes fighting.
    And crossovers...

    Look at it this way:
    Could Scarlet Johannsen be RDJ's mother? Should we see something like that?

    Of course not! Nobody wants to see that! So I hope this theory stays a theory.

    It's going to be Mary Parker, making him Peter's older brother and right after that he gets a serious case of the "Parker Luck" and everything he ever loved goes boom.

    You know what, I wouldn't hate that. She met Howard Stark, had a child out of wedlock (a big no-no back in the day) she gives the child to the father then goes off to meet Richard. That could be interesting.

    The Scarlet Witch stuff is fanboy nonsense; although, at this point, I wouldn't put it past marvel.

    Was Black Widow not scarlet witch, and she's older than she looks. There is a tale of Cap and Wolverine rescuing her as little girl in WWII. She was born in 1928. They gave her treatments to slow her aging.

    So they could go there...do I want them to no....but they could.

    This only works if you're geeking out to someone familiar with the movies but not the comics.

    So they are going the Dave Lister, Steven J Fry route?

    That would probably be more amusing than what will actually happen, Though Tony has Time Traveled before......

    This one is actually Captain America from 2099. She came over from the Spider-Man 2099 comics.

    Anyone esle confused by Marvel apparently going back to the "Marvel NOW" tagline? Not that I miss it, but what happened to the whole "All-New, All-Different" BS?

    Also, on the topic of other versions of Captain America, I would kinda like to see Earth-65 Cap get her own book or lead some sort of Earth-65 team-up.
