I watched FMJ about 50 times when i was a kid for some reason. Always loved the first half of it and hated the second half of it. As an adult though, its all awesome

No idea mooch - probably cos Tatum's a bigger star or something.

I do enjoy my superhero movie gossip too it must be said.

Yup. Well, mainly in the novella formats recently but I do have some old, rare X-Men from the 60's and the 1st ever edition of Howard The Duck.
