Marvel Handbook (1/18/05)

Hi. Chris Delloiacono speaking at you. You may know me as Word Monkey #6 at 144Anima and from various reviews/columns here at The Nexus. Daron was unable to be with us this week, due to some medical issues, so he “asked” me to take his place. Unfortunately for Jim, he doesn’t know I’m joining him. šŸ™‚

Since neither Daron, nor Jim are here to keep me in check, I will call myself The OverMonkey!

Mostly a Q/A edition, Daron, bud. No bios at least. Although, I’d love to do more series like those some time soon. I’ll do the next series of X-Men: The End when that starts up for sure. But, otherwise, I’ll let the readers pick the next one.

Want to start this up?

OverMonkey is ready! Ready to plot the takeover of those blasted “Internets” that President Bush has been talking about! And, I guess, I’m ready for the column as well. Let’s be quick, or I will not have time to plot! – The OverMonkey

Then let’s go!


Jim emails

Hey Jim,

I have been enjoying the column as I had stopped collecting for a while. I have a couple questions about Marvel Knights. What exactly is the deal with it? I know several titles fall under the banner, but how and why is it different from the rest of the Marvel titles?

The Marvel Knights line started in 1998. It was made especially for the darker characters and put them all under the new banner. The line started with a nice assortment of characters. Marvel Knights had some pretty impressive artists and writers come in to recreate the heroes using the darker tones.

Daredevil, Punisher, Black Panther, Inhumans, Black Widow (the blond at first), Hulk, Doctor Strange, Blade, and Ghost Rider were the characters that began Marvel Knights.

The line changed over the years and added such titles as Elektra, Cloak and Dagger, Nick Fury, Sentry, Doc Samson, Bullsye, The Witches, NYX, X-Statix, and Moon Knight.

The current line has: Daredevil, Pulse (Jessica Jones title), District X (Bishop’s title), Marvel Knights Spider-Man, Marvel Knights 4, Black Panther, Strange, and Black Widow

On a different topic, (maybe) wasn’t Punisher killed off in the mid-90’s? I seem to remeber him killing Microchip and Nick Fury (though I could be wrong)? How was he brought back? Did it have something to do with Marvel Knights? Thanks,

Yeah he killed off Nick Fury to start a line called Over the EDGE. The Edge line. He got put in the electric chair. He was saved by the mob. Nick of course also faked his death at this time. Frank would die again in the Edge series and come back with a vengeance in the MK series.

The OverMonkey thinks the Punisher was at his best when Garth Ennis wrote the book like it was a zany comedy! Man, I miss those days. A serious Punisher is such a downer. – The OverMonkey


Les emails

Hi Jim,

Name’s Les, and I have some answers to YOUR questions

1) First off, about Juggernaut. Yes, Juggernaut is very weakened. He’s been losing power since after the “Exemplars” storyline way back when in the Spidey/Thor/Ironman/Avengers crossover. Cytorak decided to screw Cain over since he wouldn’t work for him by slowly taking his power away. When last checked, Juggs was just below Colossus level. Now about Identity Disc. There were two Juggs, but the other Juggernaut was just a punk kid pretending to be Juggernaut. Juggernaut worked for the villian team during Identity Disc because they blackmailed Juggernaut. They told him he accidently killed someone in one of the last bank robberies he pulled, and that they’ed tell the X-Men if he didn’t help them.

Ah. You’re right. I remember that. Thanks!

A deer in the headlights! It’s just lovely when the readers have to answer the questions the “Marvel Guru” can’t answer correctly. – The OverMonkey

2) About Cap’s shield. Falling to the bottom of the ocean did nothing to damage the shield. The “flaw” in the shield that Jim went over was the problem, the shield just happened to break then. Due to the “vibranium cancer” going around at the time, along with the “flaw”, it was going to break at some point. (The shield was actually taken from the ocean floor just fine, but shattered when Jim Rhodes dropped it by accident). It could have been worse, the shield could have broken mid-fight with a supervillian. That would have sucked. Also, since the shield was repaired, the flaw is no longer there.

Thank you. I needed someone to clear that up.

No more errors! Get these questions right. Final Jeopardy is around the corner and I think we’ve got a chance to unseat Ken Jennings! – The OverMonkey

Okay, now on to some questions I have.

I just finished reading the entire run of the pre “X-Statix” X-Force (issues 1 through 115). Wow. What a harrowing experience. Anyway, I had a couple of questions.

1) Did anyone else find Shatterstar’s origin confusing as I did? Could someone break it down for me like I’m a 5 year old?

Alright, children, gather around. My name is the Watcher. Let me tell you a story.

Benjamin Russell is a man like anyone else, but, you see, he’s actually a man named Shatterstar. Shatterstar is the son of Longshot and Dazzler from Mojo world. He was sent to Earth, but he got reincarnated there. He was born as Benjamin Russell.

ZZZZZZzzzzzzz – The OverMonkey

2) At the end of X-Force, Cannonball, Meltdown, Jesse Bedlam, and James Proudstar (Warpath) all die according to Domino (the lone survivor). We’ve seen Cannonball since then ( as part of the X-Corp and X-Men). We’ve also seen Proudstar (in the X-Corp). My question is, have Bedlam and Meltdown been seen since then? I don’t think they have. The fact that in the last issue of X-Men (the Christmas one) Cannonball is back with Lila Cheny makes me think Meltdown might actually be dead. So, yeah, what’s the deal Jim?

Actually, they faked their deaths in the last issue. Domino was in on it. She knew they did it and it was planned to seem like they died. They came back later as X-Force during the X-Statix in the book.

Thanks for your time.

I’m always pleased to pay no attention to a conversation about X-Force. Thank you. Come again!. – The OverMonkey

You’re welcome!

Make Mine Overlord!

I’m certain the Overlord appreciates the sentiment, but The OverMonkey would like his props since he’s on board this week. Well?

Drat!

One of those cursed hard returns is coming. Isn’t it? – The OverMonkey


Abdul emails

Hey thought id chime in about the Juggernaut being in both X-men and Identity Disc. Heres the deal the Juggernaut in ID is the same as in X-men but despite the Juggernaut supposedly trying to turn over a new leaf he only helped the rest of the villians in ID because he was BLACKMAILED into doing it. I believe in issue 1 or 2 he has thought balloons explaining this.

The second Juggernaut was just some dumb kid that got into a fight with Juggernaut and She-Hulk.

Thanks!

As Far as Doop. During the Avengers vs. X-Statix arc in X-Statix it’s explained that Doop is not a mutant. It turns out that he was bio-engineered as a weapon.

Thanks, again.

Question though in the recent issues of Supreme Power a character Redstone appears he appeared as well in Squadron Supreme mini i was curious exactly who is his DC analog?

Good question, I was trying to pick out most of those new guys back in Squadron when they joined the team to. Redstone in my feeling might just be Captain Marvel/Shazam.

That’s a few in a row! So glad Jim could be of service. That Jennings guy’s on the run now! – The OverMonkey


Mike emails

In the Elektra movie, Elektra battles the HAND. I know that KIRIGI and TYPHOID MARY are from the comics but is ROSHI, TATTOO and STONE (played by the one and only Bob Sapp) from the comics as well? Or are they original characters?

Stone is based on the Marvel character Stone.

That’s brilliant! – The OverMonkey

In comics, though, Stone worked with Stick as part of his order.

But names will never hurt me! Nyah. – The OverMonkey

I’m not sure about Roshi. I don’t remember seeing him before. That doesn’t mean he hasn’t been in comics or worked for the Hand though.

Was that a double negative? That’s a grammar no-no! – The OverMonkey

Tattoo also appeared in comics. There’s a member of the Tektos called Tattoo with the same exact powers. Plus the name. There’s also an agent of Obadiah Stane called Tattoo.

I know Tattoo as well. He’s from Fantasy Island. De plane. De plane, boss! What a great show. – The OverMonkey

Also there was a Tattoo in the New Universe with the same type of powers. Irezumi of the Pacific Overlords is named Tattoo as well.


Ben Morse emails us again, Daron.

It’s Chris! The OverMonkey!

I sure do miss you guys. I’ll be crawling back any minute, getting paid for this stuff blows…

Nah, I just still love reading and can’t resist the occasional chance to point out a mistake. Keep up the good work.

We try our best around here. We do miss having you around too.

We definitely miss having Ben around. The freaking workload has been insane since he left.

All kidding aside, we do miss you, Ben! – The OverMonkey


Jamez emails

Long time reader, first time writer. My question isn’t really about anything in the MU but more importantly the RU that my friend would be Real Universe for those of you not in the know. This is a great site and I visit it pretty regularly and hold it in high regards for its humor, constant updating, easy navigation and most of all professionalism. Now with that said I have to take one of your reviewers up to task for his repetitive bashing of Brian Michael Bendis. Said reviewer by the way is Jesse Baker. I understand the job of a reviewer is to review a book and based on their likes or dislikes form an understandable and discernable review of the book which i believe should not be based on any bias. Baker however seems to have a hard on for Bendis i can’t honestly recall when i’ve seen any other reviewer, and correct me if im wrong here, ever give an issue a 0. I liked the issues i’ve spoken with others on the forum who have liked the issue yes it had its flaw but what comic book doesn’t. Has Baker ever wrote a positive review on any Bendis book let alone ever said anything positive about the writer?

I haven’t seen such venom for a creator from anyone since Chuck Austen wrote a little book called Uncanny X-men. Why is he “assigned” to review Bendis books when it well known that he obviously despises Bendis’ writing?

Why not have someone else review the books with an objective opinion. Why the hell would he buy a book by a creator that he doesn’t like?

There are any number of writers and artists whose work i don’t like and i let my wallet do the talking at the comic shop on Wednesdays and he should too. If you don’t like the writer than don’t buy the damn book. Makes sense doesn’t it.

Daron, old buddy, I’m letting you cover this one.

Great. Just what I always wanted! – The OverMonkey

Heck, if you want, you can even have Jesse comment.

I don’t have the strength. – The OverMonkey

This one’s all yours though. I would suggest to the reader that all articles are followed by the writer’s email address. I suspect Jesse’s email is present somewhere on the site under her reviews or an article she wrote.

Jim, you’ve been working here for awhile now, so I think we can let you in on a secret. For future reference, Jesse’s a guy. – The OverMonkey

If not, Daron likely will help. You’re up to bat.

Jamez, I’ll have you know that we’ve had more “0” scores than you’d believe, of course 99% of them were reviews by Jesse. Who’d of thunk it!

To be honest, the assignments, which I do each week, are based on a rotating schedule. When Jesse’s turn comes up for a particular book he gets it.

I don’t know why Jesse is so inclined to read a book that he HATES, but who am I to complain about the personal habits of others, after all I own Charlie’s Angels season 1 & 2 on DVD.

Jesse may have a major anger towards Bendis, but he does back his rants up with some reasoning. I’m not saying it’s sound reasoning, but there is a thought process there. You’ve got to respect that.

I do enjoy Jesse’s reviews. That’s not to say that I agree with him, but his thoughts are always interesting. You should see the unedited stuff!
– The OverMonkey


Joe emails

I actually read Identity Disc so I can help you on the Juggernaut question. The main villian of the story had something to hold over each of the characters head to get them to co-operate. In Juggernauts case it was a picture that would have framed him for a crime getting him back on the X-mens bad side. He didn’t want this to happen so he worked alongside the baddies on this case. Kind of convoluted huh?

Yep, it was. I read the series too. I never really understood it all myself. Sounded stupid in the end too. I mean, Juggs is one of the most powerful characters in comics. When he’s full strength of course.

I don’t read many of the X-books. This non-fan has to say that they are some of the stupidest guys/gals on Earth. I never remember Spider-Man asking Vulture or Kraven to sleep over for the night. Why do the X-Men keep getting fooled by the likes of Emma Frost, Magneto (How many times has he turned back and forth?), and Juggernaut I’ll tell you why. They’re naive muties! – The OverMonkey

Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t Jamie Madrox die of the legacy virus some time back. I was forced to buy newstand comics at the time and was unable to follow titles consistently. Please explain to me how he returned to life.

Actually one of his doops died of the legacy virus and was the one who got infected with it. The doop died in Haven’s arms and the real deal went into hiding.

Madrox! Good stuff! – The OverMonkey

What books have Stan Lee and Peter David written?

I love their work but have been in and out of comics all my life and can never keep track.

This one should fill up the issue alright. I’ll do this only with the Marvel books. I suggest you find the trades with most everyone of the old Stan Lee books.

Voluminous! – The OverMonkey

I suggest you copy and paste this list. Go to the comic shop and ask about TPBs

Trust me, if you walk into a comic shop with a list that long you’ll be getting strange looks from the head mouth-breather. – The OverMonkey


Now that was a long list. It should about finish the issue too. Want to give the readers something else to read?

I pimped 144Anima above, but I may as well do it here too. This way the DOL will only whip me for six hours when he returns tomorrow.

On a personal note, take a look at my recent Near Mint Memories focusing on Will Eisner and The Spirit. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.

Jim, it’s been a real blast. – The OverMonkey

Now my turn.

Reporting from the Marvel Universe, I’m Jim Trabold. Have a good week and see you at the comic shop. Keep those emails coming
