If our weekly Ask Chris column isn't enough of definitive comic book (and pro wrestling) opinions for you, good news: ComicsAlliance is proud to present Here's The Thing, a series of videos where you can join our own extremely opinionated senior writer, Chris Sims, as he dives into comics history to explain why you're wrong and he's right.

Never happened. In that respect, I'm sorry to tell you that The Wolverine did not meet my expectations.
Nothing quite says Christmas like Santa Claus battling against an ancient order of Japanese assassins!
At least, that's the premise behind this month's Twitter Art Jam theme, as suggested by Rusty Shackles (former artist of ComicsAlliance's own Great Comics That Never Happened), and while it might not be quite as traditional
As anyone who grew up watching and reading "GI Joe" knows, Australians have been living for decades under a reign of terror, held in the iron grip of fear of the Dreadnoks. A biker gang led by master of disguise and identity thief Zartan that also functions as low-rent mercenaries for the terrorist organization known as Cobra, the Dreadnoks are little more than thugs, and fortunately, they've been defeated time and time again by, among others, an elite force of Aarashikage Ninjas led by Snake-Eyes
