  1. DH, look again: “One look at Vance’s bedroom also establishes his hero-worship of Captain America.”

    Jeremy, yes that surprised me, too. Maybe when Dr. Strange mind-wiped Vance in Defenders #26, he also changed his parents’ names. You know, just to mess with him just that much more.

  2. Do you happen to know, being you, what the first appearance of the “Norma and Arnold” names was?

    I would never believe Stephen capable of such malice, until the whole Illuminati thing, of course…
