    breathing room


    I havenít enjoyed a fight scene this much since the first time I read Ultimates, thatís for sure, but with that in mind, Iím hoping for a little more breathing room and some progress on the other plot threads in next weekís X-Factor.

    In the text above, what does "breathing room" mean?

    Re: breathing room

    When things calm down a bit after a long period of excitement, it's breathing room.
