MIDTOWN BLOGGERINOS! Raph here, with a sense of nostalgia. I happened to think about a list a few days ago, a list I didn’t like. In issue 70 of Wizard Magazine, way back in 1997, they had a list of the 10 toughest superheroes. At the time, I could understand some of their choices, but I was baffled by others. Normally, I try to be above the typical fanboy debates, because they can last forever without a clear cut winner. There’s plenty of reasons why Spider-Man loses to Iron Man, or Thor beats Wolverine… but I did happen to buy this issue of Wizard from our back issue bin, and thought, let’s have some fun! I’m going to follow the same basic rules Wizard did:
We’re limiting these to active superheroes: the dead and the villainous need not apply (Sorry Professor X, Sentry, Molecule Man and Ares…) Anyone deceased as of Jan. 30th,2013 is disqualified.
We’re also limiting this to a certain degree of power: let’s leave Galactus and co. out of this one.
This is a knock-down, drag-out fight to the death. No one is holding back.
For the sake of sanity I’m limiting this list to Marvel, doing Marvel vs. DC just makes my head explode.

MIDTOWN BLOGGA DAWGS! Raph here with a DOUBLE DOSE. This time, it’s time to show Marvel some love, and talk to my close, personal best friend (… don’t ask me to prove this) Matt Fraction about Fear Itself, what with issue 6 having come out last week!

MIDTOWN BLOGGENSTOCKS! Raph here, dry and safe, with this week’s feature! If you hadn’t heard, New York City experienced it’s first full-blown hurricane since 1985 (when I was but a wee infant and the Crisis on Infinite Earths was… crisising?). Midtown stores took the winds and rains in stride, and all of us are looking forward to getting back to work and getting people their comics! This week, the NEW DCU premieres, but I have an overdue conversation to have… with Mr. Matt Fraction! We talk Fear Itself 5, enjoy!
