Chaotic Believability

Chaotic Believability: On the other hand, Steven Wintle calls the early Marvel Universe "chaotically believable": "...just when is the real world ever cohesive and consistent? The left hand rarely knows what the right hand is doing, and a variety of interpretations and slightly off-kilter continuity is the element of inadvertent, lo-fi surprise that can make shared universe superhero comics not only fun, but also somewhat chaotically believable." Now we can combine Paul O'Brien, David Fiore, and Steven and say that the Marvel Universe is like the real world because the real world is the Text that we all must interpret.
