I was thinking the same thing. I was also thinking about the Spider-Woman rights. That one might be in the same boat as Quicksilver/Scarlet-Witch. They can use the Ultimate version or the Julia Carpenter version or the Arana version, but not the Jessica Drew version since she's got zero connection to Spider-Man beyond… » 10/31/14 6:34am Yesterday 6:34am

Well, they announced 1 new "white dude lead" movie (maybe, we still don't know who will play Strange definitely), a black dude lead, a chick lead, and an ensemble cast of undetermined/unknown racial/gender makeup.

And even his YA stuff is pretty good & a good quick read until his next… » 10/21/14 7:19am 10/21/14 7:19am

Theoretically, yeah. But extremely unlikely. Your local store might not order any of Random Title Y, but somebody did at some retailer. So the one down the street might have 27 copies of it sitting on the shelf. The likelihood of nobody ordering any copies and Marvel/DC not even shipping it to the publishers to be… » 10/21/14 6:58am 10/21/14 6:58am
