  How is it that when the gypsy takes off his mask, his head is a completely different shape?

  Don't get me wrong, I loathe these stories. But I am sad that the idea that Janet/Wasp loves to make up fantastic stories to tell never seems to have been developed beyond a crappy story framing device, into what could have been an interesting character trait.

  Wasp's fairy tale was cheesy, as always.

  Once it finished it seemed so cliché, but I'll admit that I did not see the reveal coming (which is rare given I'm someone who has read almost all of TVTropes.org).

  • That’s my line – “They warned me there’d be days like this!” (Wasp) – I wonder who’s “they”?

  • Cute and cheesy! 2 stars.

  Larry Leiber's writing, or Larry Leiber's penciling? Which, oh, which one do I hate *most*...?

  Hmmm...almost seems like a Twilight Zone episode mixed with a Stephen King movie.

  I don't know how I feel about this story, honestly.

  This is a stupid trope. Oh, the man with powers is actually an alien! I didn't like it in this story or any of the other times it shows up (I'm looking at YOU X-Men).

  Hail Eris!

Unfortunately, none of the writers who made use of it seem to have had much writing talent, or else they saved it all for Certain Other Titles...
