Blooming Marvelous!

My write-up of Spider-Man 2 appears on Spiked: an insight into your inner geek and mine. Writing the article meant catching up with events in the 'Marvel Universe', which I'd been avoiding doing ever since the time the original X-Men reformed as X-Factor. Reading around on the web produced many gems, all of which I decided to leave out of the article. This one is worth repeating here though.
Why do most comic-book aliens look humanoid?

'A being called "Xorr the God-Jewel" once claimed that the "seeds" of all humanoid faces were contained within Xorri, the now-extinct race that formed the jewel. The validity of this claim is questionable, but it is also unlikely that the vast similarities among certain races can be attributed to parallel evolution.'

Move over Stephen Hawking! At least the author admits that the validity of the claim is questionable...
