But Alex, what about the Infinity Serum that Fury takes to stay young, which is the bedrock concept behind blah blah blah blah?

Well yeah, it's a satirical piece, it's exaggeration for the purpose of ridicule, and humorous but constructive social criticism.

Do you feel it's an inaccurate commentary on Byrne's statements themselves, this isn't the first time he's taken such extreme views about movies he hasn't seen is it?

Yeah! I dare say if we start picking at one thread the whole thing will eventually unravel and we might realize the movie and the comics are full of all sorts of impossible concepts...

But, imagine how cranky Fury would be then, if he were 95!

eeek. Imagine how many times a night you'd have to get out of bed to pee at 95?

Or do you just get depends and rubber sheets at that point?

I hadn't thought of that. There is a plus side, young nurses and sponge baths!

I agree with Paul so far as "switching it off" goes. It would be impossible to enjoy any adaption from anything to film if you pick at every difference between the movie and the source material. I've found, with superhero films anyway, so long as they keep the parts that made the property successful in the first place the film is usually pretty good.

John Byrne should should check out Avengers on the big-screen, it's a really fun movie. Who knows, he might even change his mind.

No, it is indeed not an exaggeration. It is, however, an opinion &, contrary to popular opinion, opinions can (as in this case) be wrong. Mainly because you appear to be stating your opinion as an absolute.

I would phrase it in this manner...JB can be a jerk. And that's a fact.
