    I’ve seen a few people mentioning that I got away with quite a bit in this month’s Marvel Adventures: Avengers story, “Ego, The Loving Planet.” But I didn’t get away with as much I tried for. And probably for the best because it’s All Ages rated, but I couldn’t help myself. Here’s Page 18 as I originally wrote it, thinking I could slide by Seinfeld style by referencing something without mentioning it directly.


    Panel 1/ Iron Man is flying at us as if we’re looking down into the volcano. Lava is bubbling violently behind him.

    IRON MAN: Everyone clear the area…

    Panel 2/ BIG / The volcano erupts and Iron Man zips out of the way. Giant-Girl is running away, Hulk is jumping

    IRON MAN: … this thing’s gonna blow!


    Panel 3/ Close on Ego’s eyes, wide open.

    Panel 4/ Ego makes an embarrassed face.

    EGO: Uh… heh. ‘Scuse me, sugar. Usually I’m in total control…

    CAPTION: “Now, Spider-Man! Play Storm’s message to the planet!”

    I actually have to remove stuff like this more frequently than you might think. But I like to believe that it lets other, less egregious bits make it through. Nonetheless, we created a new genre, Planet Slash-fic, and that’s progress. Somewhere.

    Heh. That’s great. But yeah, probably for the best that it had to be changed. While I doubt most kids would get it, all it takes is one parent with a bug up their butt to have a fit over something like this. And then your life is hell. :p

    I’ve never read a comic before that likened me to an STD. Good stuff!

    Great issue!

    Love your Marvel Adventures: Avengers stuff. Different mediums I know, but I think it’s up there with Doctor Who and Shrek as a great piece of all ages entertainment.

    Planet Slash-fic??
    Well….., I guess that’s okay….. So long as you don’t get into any of that gas giant fetish crap. That’s just GROSS!!……… I won’t even mention any of the white dwarf/black hole stories I’ve seen over in the Galctic S & M webring.

    True fact: Kalinara (of When Fangirls Attack! fame) invented planet-slash already with an Ego/Mogo joint.
