Andy Kubert makes me cringe *shivers*
Nearly at the point where I joined up with this crazy soap opera. Love seeing Andy Kubert popping up, and Niceaza’s near Claremontian purple prose. Fatal Attractions! Bloodties! The 90’s had a lot of terrible stuff, but it had some cool bits too.
My 2 cents on the blood vs mystery airplane fluid debate: transmission rates of most bloodborne pathogens on a single exposure are fairly low and of all the ways you can take someone else’s blood into your body (without medical supervision) that’s the least bad. So I’m tempted to say it’s the safer option. I still wouldn’t recommend doing it though.
Did you hear? Now Colossus can throw DAZZLER! Maybe not as funny as Devil Dinosaur, but totally something I want to see in the comics.
