Today in Comics History: They lost on Second Jeopardy

Hey, remember back on February 3, where the Vision Twins were accused of shaking down their classmates for their lunch money, Pokémon cards, and this week's cool new Marvel Comic book releases? Naw, me either. But they were j'accused, and it looked a little bit like this:

Well, whatever you can say about that scene (like, Vin Vision is much taller than three apples), you can say this: it definitely happened on February 3.

Or...did it?

What? Marvel changed the cover just because this book got reprinted six months later? Hmmm, on the positive side, that absolutely does help to identify the second printing from the first in the best way aside from putting the words "Second Printing" on the cover. But it does point out the deficiency in our Earth-616 school districts where the new pair of kids have to face a kangaroo court every month. Although, kangaroo court? That sounds like fun! "Your honor, I'd like to pocket this motion."

Anyway, at least we've heard the last of that.

But please do come back again on July 12!
