11) Why does Deadpool have so many pouches?

that's not unresolved. Rob Leifeld is just a horrible artist obsessed with pouches.

... which they then mention how they get resolved, much later.

fark's sake.

Per most of the slides, almost all of these "cliffhangers" were later resolved in other lines/issues.

/useless slideshow is useless.

"Unresolved"?? Your slide show blog sucks.
 
2012-08-19 05:08:05 AM
I swear, that tiny "Start Here" button was hiding from me. It took me far too long to track it down and poke it.

But in the end nothing escapes a poking.

Omega the Unknown was further resolved by Jonathan Lethem a few years ago.

How about Kevin Smith's Daredevil/Bullseye miniseries 'Target' which he abandoned half way through?

More like the writer doesn't know the meaning of "unresolved".

I just want to say the way they resolved the "who killed the X-men" thing was terrible. I mean really bad.
 
2012-08-19 10:15:21 AM
Gee, you should see some of the unresolved plot lines in the Hanna Barbara and Warner Bros. universes. How does that coyote not die?

I'm still waiting on X-Men 3 and Spider-Man 3, myself.

Why did Marvel rehire Liefeld?

Actually, why does anyone hire Liefeld in the first place? I can understand the first time he was hired, no one knew any better. But after that? Yeah, wtf?

I know it's not Marvel, but I'd like to see Kevin Smith finish "Batman: The Widening Gyre" sometime this millennium. I don't want to have to wait half a decade to read the conclusion, just like what happened when Smith took several years to finish the conclusion of the Black Cat/ Spider-man miniseries, "The Evil That Men Do".

Dude needs to put down the joints, stop doing crappy reality shows (Comic Book Men and Spoilers), and start banging out the rest of the series. Just because you're starting to look like GRR Martin doesn't mean you have to adopt his sloth-like writing pace, Kevin.

Posting just how much to say you don't care is pretty much the definition of a troll comment.

I didn't know or give a crap about most of those (I mean Dazzler? Really?) but I'm intrigued by the idea of the Thing splitting off from the Fantastic 4 and doing his own stuff.

No, it's not. Someone doing something that you personally find annoying is not trolling, despite how generalize we've made that word.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troll_%28Internet%29

He could have had an interest in the article, clicked it, and found all of the 'cliffhangers' retarded, actually solved, etc. Or he could have simply found all of the ones they listed absolutely not interesting while he eats his glue-sandwich. I don't know. But it doesn't make it trolling.

Given that he was bitten by a radioactive spider, he should've developed venom related powers - no symbiote needed.

No, what really should have happened is, he should have got cancer and died.

/and that's why arguing about what "should" happen in a comic book is silly.

Whatever happened to that spider that bit Peter Parker? Is it still laying in wait? Patiently building up its army of glistening radioactive eggs, all of which will hatch at the appointed hour to unleash wave upon horrifying wave of spiders on the unsuspecting, oh so unsuspecting citizens of New York? Will Peter Parker wake up one day to find a gigantic, growling, hissing spider the size of a Buick staring him in the face with its hundreds of glowing eyes, any one of which can pierce into a man's soul as would a sword of the finest steel? Will he rush to the window to see thousands, nay millions of spiders, some with as many as 26 legs and mutating more by the minute, spearing through the ruins of what was once a shining beacon of freedom to the world? Oh, lamentable of lamentables, would a mutant spider being make unnatural actions- though they all be unnatural given its origin- and violate our dear maiden, the Statue of Liberty, long into the night, as America is helpless but to watch? What shall Peter do? What CAN he do? For they are the Great Creators of he!

...this went to a weird place.

Did anything ever come of that?

I'd say you have a point unless the venom wasn't powerful enough to kill a teenage boy and even if it were radioactive the tiny amount of exposure would have no effect beyond the poison itself.

Reality doesn't work that way, so quit arguing for it incorrectly... Yeesh!

Yea, it turned him into Superman setting into motion his vaporization by Phoenix.

If I'm remembering correctly, it just farked up his blasts for that issue. I think he couldn't use them. That was the change. Then he just got better by his next appearance.

The spider died from the radiation shortly after biting Peter.

Not every explanation in comics involves a 12 issue mini-series.
