THE LAW IS A ASS #302: A Civil War Never Is

Bob Ingersoll

By day Bob Ingersoll was an attorney in the Cuyahoga County Public Defender Office, Appellate Division in Cleveland, Ohio, until he retired in 2009. But in the “Real World” he has also been a freelance writer since 1975, when he sold his first comic-book story to the late, lamented Charlton Comics. He’s still at it and, in addition to his long-running column “The Law Is a Ass” has sold stories to DC, Marvel, Innovation, Now Comics, Comico, Kitchen Sink and others; as well as co-authoring the novels Captain America: Liberty’s Torch and Star Trek: The Case of the Colonist’s Corpse. Bob is married with children, which is about as close to Al Bundy as he cares to get.

    My main problem with Civil War was the way characters behaved ‘out of character’. Spider-Man revealing his secret identity is just something I can’t see Peter Parker ever considering because of the danger it would’ve placed his friends and family in. It was an interesting idea, but had I been an editor, I’d have rejected it as it was because of the characters’ incongruous behaviour.

    I think Marvel abandoned the idea of Marvel time in the 1990s. They substituted the idea that FF’s first flight happened 10 years ago, which means all those old stories have to be continually compressed to fit that 10 year Procrustean bed. In those 10 years, for example, Reed and Sue have married, separated, had 2 children, the U-Foes and Ivan Kragoff have copied their flight, the FF has broken up at least twice, etc., etc. In that breakneck pace, the phase-in period for the SHRA would be only moments.
    BTW, have you written about the SHRA’s predecessor, the MRA?
