X-Men Envy

This week, we offer up another series of After Show Discussion shows. These are conversations the Major Spoilers Crew have outside of the normal show, and range from sex in comics to our favorite animated features.

In this installment (recorded October 8, 2008), it appears as though different mediums are ripping of comics. Is this okay? Has everything that can be done, already been done?

  1. What the quote about imitation being the best flattery? There are quite a few things working best for the “rip-off” shows. Even as ratings dip for Heroes, they have far more viewers than X-Men have readers. On their worst night they have a million people who may have never read X-Men, while on X-Men’s best day they may have 100,000 readers. Given most the readers may watch the show, it does not work in reverse. Also most viewers have a very short attention span (hence the reruns), while comic readers can remember a story line from 1986 (for example).
