Summer of “Spam Alexander” officially over!

Dang it was a good summer! Did we get to the factory yet in Spam Alexander’s ongoing? (Simpson’s Poochie reference, folks)

BTW why is Loeb’s book the only ones spamming the Chitauri?

Speaking of spamming, heres another comprehensive link to my fan fics, all in progress, ive found a better site to work on them from and will be using that more. My new episode of Nova Corps: Operation Red Dragon, is in full swing.

    1. I dont see that enough moments have been written to galvanize he is trying to become anything. Most of the heroes of this ilk, even Spidey had a couple issues as a goof and then more or less were competent young adult heroes who basically learned a quick new lesson that made them take what they do seriously. That hasnt happened with Sam …and it wont happen for some time. Everything appealing about Sam is he is a goof screw up (not to mention young 15 year old) running around with a weapon of mass destruction. The motif has just lost drive in this day and age. Once this sets in you realize Sam is a marketing stunt. He’s a scheme to attract a certain demographic by 50 year old men. He’s not a genuine character. Duggan is just penning Loeb’s pre set script.

  1. ‘That hasnt happened with Sam …and it wont happen for some time. ‘ It helps if you use apostrophes when doing sentences. And Sam has had only 30 issues compared to Mr Rider.

    1. Yeah my grammar is terrible, especially on my little chromebook laptop where I can’t get the damn spell check to work. I don’t know if its really an excuse about the issue count. In some ways, I think its a huge reason Sam replaced Rider…they wanted the slot for Nova to be a young Peter Parker bumbler and stumbler..not a veteran hero like Rider. RIder had gone beyond the point of no return to regress to a bumbler…and that had been done to us before. Rider was quite able at around issues 20 of his VOl. 1 series. It does not bode well that there will be growth for Sam…really its been 20 issues now and like I said, even guys like Spider Man or Ultimate SPider man were more competent heroes by then. THe buffoon is what Sam is im afraid..its his shtick.

  2. ‘In some ways, I think its a huge reason Sam replaced Rider…they wanted the slot for Nova to be a young Peter Parker bumbler and stumbler..’ Did you actually read Amazing Fantasy V1 issue 15 & Amazing Spider-Man V1 issues 121, 122?

    1. I did… and I never thought either served as a metaphor for Parker being incompetent. With Gwen, I have always considered that a metaphor for the proverbial “Rock and a hard place” or if you know your Star Trek, “the Kobayashi Mru” scenario..IE an UNwinnable situation. Over time it had different meaning to Pete , as also a a huge turning point in his life/ regret. Showing someone learn and grow is a different situation than what we have. The whole point is Sam wont ever be allowed to grow because he will then “cease to be”. I also thought the original lesson Pete learned with the death of his Uncle, was more a moral lesson…not one reaped by his actual incompetence of ability. It was a punishment for greedy selfish behavior.
