  3. Marvel released twice as many comics as DC
  4. Batman Who Laughs still tops at #2
  1. On Magneto: “That with each passing day he’s, more and more, ideologically ‘of the times.’”
  2. On X-Men as a team: the idea of ‘teams’ and ‘schools’ and other ‘ways to get things done’ aren’t necessarily the kind of things that we want to hold too tight to.
  3. X-Men costumes, Storm has all the old costumes in her wardrobe, why not wear them depending on the art team and how they want her to look?
