To the "true believers" Marvel UK made its bank on Alan Moore. Have you ever read the Moore/Davis run on Captain Britain? It is the only time the character had any meat to him at all. Should Marvel characters rain bloody parts down on London? I don't know, but did you read that horrible story called Ultimatum?? The death of the Blob, the Wasp, Daredevil and everyone else? That was less gory for you? Without Moore writing Watchmen, Miracleman, Swamp Thing and countless other stories we would still be reading bronze age style garbage. He created the graphic novel art form, he spawned countless imitators and when people like Loeb, Geoff Johns or any of the other modern writers create anything partially worthy of reading they all owe a giant thank you to Moore for making it possible for people to stop thinking of comics as just for kids. None of us would even enjoy the art form if that was the kind of stuff being published today. He took a character that was as whitebread bland as imaginable and made it into the greatest comic story of all time. You ever read any of Stan Lee's old comics? While he is arguably one of the greatest comics creators of all time, Stan's stories just do not fit today's world. The comic art form owes as much to Mr Moore as it does to Stan, Siegel& Shuster, Bob Kane and Ditko. Every fan should have the preference, but you cannot even remotely be taken seriously if you call someone like Moore a hack. He has had more original ideas and created more genres within the comics world than any other modern day writer. Make mine "something other than bland predictable storytelling"!

I guess I am one of the few people who thinks that maybe children shouldn't see there favorite superhero getting molested and then ripping peoples body parts off and making the sky "rain" with them. But lets put that aside, Marvel/Disney owns the character now let them do whatever they want to with him. If you don't like it deal with it! Now go read v for vendetta and leave the true believers alone!

It's true what people say about Marvel Zombies. No wonder you people want to eat someone's brains. You certainly don't have any of your own. I personally will ignore and even urge other fans boycott any garbage that does not include the Moore and Gaiman work in the history of the character. There are many other fans who feel the same way I do.

That "creepy disturbing stuff from Moore" was some of the best stuff ever written in comics. The Moore run MADE the character. Great writing. Not "good" GREAT. 99.999 percent of comic writers today will never, EVER hold a candle to the worst stuff Moore has written. "Miracleman" is some of the BEST.

Was the Sentry really Marvel Man? The Sentry was very similar to Alan Moore's Marvel Man. Since the Miracle Man stuff is stuck forever in courtroom limbo making--The Sentry turning out to be Marvel Man would give Marvel a modern take on Marvel Man without all the creepy disturbing stuff from Moore.I know the Sentry died but he was omnipotent so he only thinks he's dead.Anyway just a thought.

i hope to the all mighty that they forget alan moore was even born. His stories are highly over-rated, and aren't worth wrapping fish with.Let marvel man be what he was intended a good guy. not some sick twisted perverted nightmare from a deranged worthless, ego-centric hack writer like alan moore.oh and by the way watchmen was a terrible comic. and a even worse movie.

If Marvel plans to do anything significant with Marvelman they are going to have to not include Moore's development of the character in Marvel continuity. If they do include it in canon then the only place he will fit is in the cosmic Marvel U. His power set would basically be that of the Beyonder, but much more dangerous given his apathy towards humanity.I hope Marvel ignores all that Moore has done with the character so Marvelman can have a fresh start, and be developed within the Marvel Universe. I rather have a fresh, rich character than what Moore developed running around in the MU.

[quote@Aizakku 3) Disney then revamps Marvelman and makes a CGI animated Marvelman movie and TV series, and Marvel publishes a Marvelman comic based on the Disney revamp.And the reason I'd like to see this last part done is because I see Marvelman as a blank slate. Most of us have no idea who or what he is, so Disney and Marvel can take what works about him, scrap the rest, and build whatever they want him to be from there. And I believe Disney and Marvel can successfully do a PG or PG-13 version of Marvelman. So all in all, he's perfect. And I think this can be perfect and Marvelman can be a huge franchise if Disney and Marvel wants it to be.Excelsior![/quote] Stop it.I swear to god.

[quote@Christophilius Who is this guy?? Most important characters in comic book history?? Huh?? ...maybe from a legal standpoint. I know almost nothing about Marvelman except that his ownership rights were fought over by McFarlane and Marvel. I hope MarvelMan is awesome. Maybe he'll replace Sentry as the ersatz Superman in the MU.[/quote] I liked the Sentry having a super power strength that no other hero really had. Maybe, like you say, Marvelman can replace him as the strongman of the MU.

Can anyone tell me briefly who this guy is? Power set, secret identity, what era is he from? Marvel's making such a big deal about somebody I don't know, I feel like i'm being left of the loop or something.

Isn't one of the iconic moments in Marvelman the rape of a schoolboy by his peers and his subsequent transformation into a super-powered man who literally tears his attackers to pieces? Won't this be for 'Mature Readers'? Or will it be edited?

Is Marvel going to reprint Alan Moore's run? From what I've heard, it's on par with Watchmen, while most of the earlier stories were just Superman rip-offs.

I haven't been this excited about a book since West Coast Avengers debuted. I mean I was really excited I pushed my cousin out of the way to buy issue #2 for goodness sake. Can't wait to read MarvelMan and find out why this character is so important.

Marvelman sounds exciting. Just hope he's not a bust like the Sentry story was.

OH!And about "superstar" Quesada's "now-iconic rendition".Blow it out your nose / remove your lips from Quesada's rear.

I could give two shakes.Call me when you reprint Alan Moore's Miracleman, if you can do that without screwing it up which I'm pretty sure you can't.Oh, and I hope this bombs just to smite you.PS Could you ask Anglo if he could make that "variant" any uglier?I'm not sure it looks quite vintage enough.
