Re: Avengers Vs. X-Men -- Speculation, Spoilers, and Discussion
It isn't just a matter of decompression though to me right now, as a Bendis fan that is something you are automatically used it. It is more than that. As I mentioned in the Heroic Age/Marvel thread he is becoming like Geoff Johns on Green Lantern, complacent with his work. He has been with these characters for so long that he has no fresh ideas or seemingly any passion for them. At least with Johns, he is able to focus on one particular character and you know automatically that he LOVES writing that character. I don't see that in Bendis' work at the moment with any character. That is the frustrating part for me. He is capable of good writing, but not in his 616 work. For example, that passion has been directed and refocused to Miles Morales and Ultimate Comics Spider-Man. Most of the book has been brilliant so far, as was the Death of Spider-Man. Just his 616 work has been suffering due to this though. It's like he's bored with these characters.
