Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

I loved Marvel Cosmic, but both Annihilators books lacked something. Nova had the momentum of Annihilation behind it and it's focus on one individual, then slowly adding a supporting cast worked, keeping the focus on Rich worked. Guardians of the Galaxy worked because they were outcasts, misfits, in the grand Marvel tradition. Annihilators, despite having the first string of cosmic heroes, left very little to grab onto, character-wise.
