No problem Dedicatedfollower467. They don't need to be there right on the eleventh. As long as there is a flurry of letters around November 11, surely someone at Marvel will notice.

To Retcon the Draco Arc...

Has anyone received a form letter from Marvel in response? I figure everyone else already did because I was late-ish sending my BAADD letter out.

I haven't heard a word from Marvel, at least not in the mail. Did you get something, Elfdame?

BTW, if anyone still wants to send in a letter, it's never too late.

It said:

"Thank you for expressing your concern to us. We greatly value the thoughts and feelings of our readers.

"Your words will be passed on to the editorial department for consideration, and from there a decision about Nightcrawler's origin will be determined.

"We hope that this does not affect your loyalty to Marvel and its characters. Your great passion for our brand is sincerely appreciated, and is a key aspect to what helps make the Marvel Universe what it is today.

"Sincerely,

The letter had no date on it; any typos are mine.
The envelope was addressed by hand as well, which I found interesting.

I imagine we will all get the same one.


[hijack] If Bman sees this -- waddaya think about valuing the thoughts/feelings? Like, how about a certain arachnoid buddy of ours who did his wife dirty for no reason by undoing their marriage with a helluva lot more trouble than divorce? I totally wanted to use that as a further example of how they are eroding their, um, mature-aged reader base, but didn't b/c had to stick to the subject, ie, Nighty. [/hijack]

I just got my letter today, Elfie! Exact same wording and everything. I knew it was a form letter!

Dedicatedfollower467, who did you send your letter to? I only sent one because I ran out of stamps and I forgot to send the second one to Mr. Perlmutter. It sounds like they are from his office.

I should get busy and send in the second letter. I want to get a form letter from Marvel too. :(

All four suggested, actually... got an answer from somebody completely different?

I was totally not expecting anyone to respond at all!
But I haven't gotten any reply either, and I did send one to Mr. Perlmutter. :( (I haven't checked today, though...)
If I do get one, I'll let ya'll know.

If they're sending out hand-signed letters, maybe they got more responses than just us BAADD guys. Maybe a lot of fans lurking in the shadowy realms beyond this and the Marvel website wrote letters. Wouldn't that be great?

------------------------------------
Update:
I got my letter!!!!
Wow! I was not expecting that. I have to say I'm impressed.

It said the same thing as everyone else's and was also hand signed.
It was post-dated on the 1st or 2nd of December.

Wouldn't it really be great if we actually made a difference?

Might I add that everything leading up to this arc was also completely moronic if not redundant.

I mean.... Making Kurt the "SUPA SEEKRIT MUTANT POPE" that was their plan? And the entire concept was so terribly written, so horribly penned out, that Chuck actually explains an event that has been going on for years in Kurt's life, by an anonymous traitor to the villainous Christian Cult, who spills the entire story in a SINGLE PANEL. Not a page. Not two pages. Not five panels of dialogue. They're walking down the FUCKING HALL and in one Panel, he explains everything that's happened in the last 4 issues, because it made absolutely NO SENSE up to that point. And after that point all you wanted to do was go "WHAT?!?! How the HELL is this NOT considered moronic?"
