There was a gimmick the Uncanny X-Men editors were doing in the mid 80s. Having an X-Men teammate “answer” the letters readers would send in to 387 Park Avenue South, New York, NY. In this particular issue, it’s Rogue’s turn. So she answers questions bout the issue she joined the team, Uncanny X-Men #171.
Today she’s one of the most popular X-Men, but at the time Rogue was not well liked and her inclusion on the team was in question. Needless to say, this made for one of the more fascinating Letter’s Pages to read, especially when keeping all of Rogue’s history in perspective. 
You can read the letters page questions and Rogue’s answers here. 

I. Love. This.

I think this is up sebsational's alley.

Whew! I’ve been on the road and/or at local conventions (hi, ECCC and Norwescon!) for most of the month, so I am late saying: Ms. Marvel #3! Out now!

If you were intrigued by the mosque scene in this issue, you must take a look at American Muslim activist Hind Makki’s amazing site, Side…

Important and enlightening words from the author of one of the most important and enlightening super hero comics around.

jamesgf asked: Hi! I just read your article on CBR about Foggy Nelson, and, as a fellow Foggy admirer, I wanted to drop you a note to say I thought it was great! Really do hope we get to see a good Foggy on the small screen! Best!

Hooray! Thank you!

I’m actually a bit stunned that this incredibly niche article is getting even half the amount of attention it’s gettig.

Lupita was recently named the most beautiful by People’s Magazine, and some of their readers expressed their dissatisfaction with this decision  in the comment section. One reader even commented that Lupita didn’t deserve this title because she’s 100% black(she finds women unattractive if they’re 100% black). These comments made me think of the brilliant post made by radicalrebellion: 
White women (non-black women of color included in this as well) become offended and angry when a black woman (especially a dark skinned black woman like Lupita) is depicted as beautiful and worthy of appreciation because it jeopardizes their position as the epitome of beauty and womanhood. Black women are viewed as the antithesis of White beauty and womanhood, these white women are completely apathetic and silent when dark skinned Black women are portrayed as “ugly” and “unlovable” by the mainstream media because they benefit from this oppression. That’s why you never see white supermodels discussing racism and colorism in the fashion industry. However, these readers wouldn’t complain if it were light skinned black women like Halle Berry, Beyonce, or Rihanna (we all know why, hint: colorism). Anyway, congratulations to the ***flawless Lupita for being named the most beautiful!  

This is why this is important.

I kinda hope they never start casting the Marvel Netflix series, because speculating about which characters and which actors could pop up in five television series is just too much fun. Especially the street-level characters from the Marvel Universe, most of which haven’t been adapted in the Marvel Cinematic Universe yet. The possibilities!

  • James Wolk as Daredevil
  • Harry Shum Jr. as Iron Fist
  • Terry Crews as Luke Cage
  • Sola Bamis as Misty Knight
  • Rich Sommer as Foggy Nelson
  • Stephanie Beatriz as White Tiger

I can’t think of anyone for Colleen Wing, and Jessica Jones is stumping me too. 

Of course, this is all dependent on Misty, White Tiger, and Colleen appearing on any of these new shows. I hope they do!

Kevin Wada still killing it with these She-Hulk covers. Can’t wait for #6!

IN YOUR FACE JAM: The Marvel Cinematic Universe Needs Foggy Nelson
Some weeks having my own opinion column means writing 1300 words about a comic book character that I have a crush on and then campaigning — hard — for one actor to play him.
I don’t really care who plays Daredevil, but Rich Sommer is Foggy Nelson. And Foggy Nelson is an incredibly important character.
