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

Well I read the second issue of Avengers and it felt a little off...but ended with another intriguing cliffhanger. Secret Avengers#2 came out yesterday as well which I picked up but haven't read yet. Also Marvel seems to be revealing the new 'Spider-Girl' from the Young Allies in an upcoming issue of Amazing Spider-Man (I think 637).

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

Just finished reading the second issue of "Secret Avengers" and it's one of the best comics on the shelf right now.

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

This is the first time I've ever read Avengers stories by individual issue and not by trade, so it feels a little disconnected like nothing's happening. Still, I'm enjoying all of them except for Avengers Academy which I just didn't care about, even with the "shocking" plot twist.

^ Yeah this is the first time I've been reading single issue Avengers issues as well but am really intrigued by the plot in Secret Avengers more than Avengers now. I don't care also about Avengers Academy.

I like Secret Avengers a lot too. It's well-written (by the same guy who did the recent Captain America story arc, right?) and it has a dynamic, intriguing cast of characters.

Yeah, Secret Avengers is pretty good. Brubaker knows his stuff. Avengers was a little off to me as well. Not sure Bendis is a good match for the team.( Yeah Yeah I know) So far Secret Avengers reads and feels more like the Avengers I know.

I couldn't even finish Young Allies.

The story of Secret Avengers is not terribly interesting to me. I don't know what a Serpent Crown is in the first place so I'm not amazed and intrigued that there's more than one. Plus... Moon Knight in space?! Little silly.

It's related to Hydra and the ongoing conflict between Hydra and SHIELD which was revealed to be going on for a lot longer in Jonathon Hickman's excellent SHEILD mini.

I read 1-2 of SHIELD, and it was very bizarre and interesting. It was also exactly like the Assassin's Creed games (which is a good thing!).

I thought the same thing when I read SHEILD (except for comparing it to Assassin's Creed) I love the bizarre, esoteric nature of the book along with it's wide scope.

According to wikipedia Nick Fury created SHIELD after WWII. How are they going to retcon that? Also, Galactus attacked Earth in the ?1500s? I thought FF 48-50 was the first time he came to Earth.

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

Supposedly, it was. SHIELD (and its sister-project, Secret Warriors) is a big secret history thing.

I'm enjoying it so far, though it could stand to really flesh out the characters; so far, they're basically just pawns that move around to elucidate the weird scenarios going on (Leonardo basically speaks entirely in movie trailer quotes).

Yeah I'm reading Secret Warriors. They actually manage to make Hydra interesting. Though it's an odd disconnect with the Gorgon's first appearance in Wolverine Enemy of the State, where Strucker is this pathetic has-been totally whipped by that old woman who then has the Gorgon kill him.
