Axel-In-Charge: Waid & Samnee on "Black Widow" and the Dawn of the All-New, All-Different Era
Just recently, I brought up an old Comic Book Dictionary piece I did called “Snowball Idea,” where the basic gist of it is that a “Snowball Idea” is an idea that once brought up, no matter how silly it is, it will just roll down the hill, collecting mass and momentum until it’s a giant snow boulder – or basically, ideas that, once suggested, are inevitable. Well, my pal Sean Whitmore just noted that I should look at the example I gave at the end of a current snowball idea. The original example I used (when I first wrote the piece in 2005) was the return of Jason Todd. At the time, it had not yet happened, but I knew it was only a matter of time. And it did – so the example I picked to take the place of Jason Todd’s return (this was back in June of 2006, when I did the edit)?
The dissolution of Peter and Mary Jane’s marriage.
Snowball ideas – they are very real.
