Steve Englehart Born in Indianapolis, he went to Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut. He studied Psychology because people fascinated him, but in getting his B.A. he learned that psychology didn't describe real people, so he became a writer.Living the Young Creator's life in New York, he got to be drinking buddies with an editorial assistant at Marvel Comics. One night the e.a. called to say he was going on vacation for six weeks; would Steve like to fill in for him on staff? Steve would, and once in the door at what was then a very small operation, he got a shot at writing a comic. It was a failing series called Captain America -- but six months later it had become Marvel's leading seller, and Steve had all the work he could handle. He became Marvel's lead writer, adding The Hulk, The Avengers, Thor, Dr. Strange, and half a dozen other series. Then he was hired away by DC Comics to be their lead writer and revamp their core characters (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, and Green Lantern). He did, but also wrote a solo Batman series that readers dubbed the "definitive" version and broke the long-standing barrier between comics readers and the mass market. All comics films since Batman in 1989 stem from that.After Batman he traveled around Europe for a year and wrote his first novel, The Point Man. Since then he's designed video games for Atari, Activision, Electronic Arts, and others. He's written animation for Street Fighter and G.I. Joe. He's written mid-grade books for Avon, including the DNAgers series, and Countdown to Flight, a biography of the Wright brothers selected by NASA as the basis for their school programs on the invention of the aeroplane. And he's written more comics, like Fantastic Four and Silver Surfer, which led to the San Diego Comic-Con calling him "comics' most successful writer, having had more hits with more characters at more companies than anyone else in comics history." He created The Night Man, which became a live-action television series.Most recently, The Point Man has engendered a series of novels from Tor, beginning with The Long Man.

I think this is the second time I've read this, and it mostly underscored my abiding dislike of Englehart's Steve. There is some unintentional hilarity to be derived by Steve's gay porn pirate costume, but for the most part Steve is whiny and self-involved, and basically throws a tantrum every time ...

I ask because the question was brought up in my own mind here: at times, writers are vehement about insisting Vision is a synthezoid and not an android, and at times they are quite casual about the interchange of these words. When they talk about him in the little boxes, they never call him an and...

This whole series was written in a series of super-serious exclamations! I'm not kidding! Every single sentence was written like this! Even questions, you ask? Well, no, not those! Those ended with question marks, obviously, but exclamation marks all around otherwise! Can you imagine rea...

Maybe that was the problem. Maybe it was that Marvel Unlimited gives me a migraine on my phone, even turning the display lights way down, and the web reader that I finally found is just inferior. (The navigation bars at the top and bottom cover over a lot of the dialogue and they just do not go ...
