Do they even sell soap during soap operas?


Not that I really care. Anyway, HERE'S Marvel's site for all your burning questions about their crossover with the GUIDING LIGHT soap opera...

In the first-ever comic-soap crossover, Marvel's mightiest heroes (and villains) meet some of daytime drama's steamiest characters. The debut and origin of Springfield's first costumed crime-fighter will be told on air on the November 1st episode of Guiding Light. As an added bonus, the episode will feature many "Easter eggs" for sharp-eyed Marvel fans, so be on the lookout! Appearing in comics as an 8-page back-up beginning 10/26 and written by soap-and-comic scribe Jim McCann, the Avengers and their deadly foes descend on Guiding Light's city of Springfield to determine if a new super-powered being is friend or foe!


Let me know if anyone saw this...

Bill, I think it's "Let me know if anyone saw this...coming?"
Seriously...superheroes, soap operas...we should put those two together.

Wow. That's got to be one of the weirdest crossover ideas I've ever heard. I'm wondering what the Avengers looked like on a show like Guiding Light. Soap Operas aren't exactly well known for incredible SFX and costumes, knowhutimean?

I once watched the soap opera SANTA BARARA for about six weeks after my motorcycle accident, but I blame the pain medication.

My dad and I tried to watch a soap opera one time (don't remember which one), and it was probably one of the most painful, regretted, and hilarious experiences of my life.

I know. My wife still watches Days of Our Lives,and it's torturous.

The timewarp reality soap operas operate under is so weird. A single day for the characters can take weeks, nay MONTHS to finish and yet children grow from toddlers to highschoolers in the blink of an eye. So weird.

You could easily just watch 1 episode monthly for a year and know exactly what's happened.

BTW, Bill. I must confess, I too watched Santa Barbara. I was in high school at the time. I blame it on the ignorance of adolescene. Or the pathetic 80's. You pick.

All I remember (in my happy soft-focus haze) was that there was a character who was down a well and in the six weeks I watched that was where they stayed... no one had even started looking for them yet or anything. It was the stupidest thing I ever saw, and probably hastened my recovery. I had to get away from the TV.
