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

I'm enjoying all of the Avengers books to one degree or another. I'm going to give Academy a few issues, probably through the upcoming T-Bolts crossover, before deciding one way or the other about it. I'm even enjoying Bendis' "oral history" chapters in the same way I enjoyed "Under the Hood" and other Watchmen back-up features.

I'm enjoying Secret Warriors, but I've decided that it's going to be one of those series where, after it's over, it'll be better to read the whole series over from start to finish.

I think I read somewhere that it's a limited run and it's going to end in the next 6 issues or so (Secret Warriors).

It has a fixed conclusion in mind, which I believe is 30 issues.

It's funny. If someone had told me 10 years ago that I would one day be buying more Avengers books than X and Spider-books combined, I would have laughed at them. And yet, here we are.

I'm buying the four monthlies, Avengers Prime and will be buying Avengers: Children's Crusade #1 next week. That's six. Events like Second Coming notwithstanding, I'm only buying two X-books (Uncanny and New Mutants. I'm not going to bother with the big X-Men/Dracula thing that's coming up), and one Spider Book, (the soon to be dis-continued) Spider-Girl. Wow.

If someone 3 months ago had told me I'd be buying and enjoying a Bendis written Avengers book I'd have laughed at them. But I really enjoyed the first issue of the new NEW AVENGERS.

Go figure.

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

Yeah, in the late 90s when I originally read comics I was all about the X-Men and couldn't give a crap about the Avengers. Now I'm all about the Avengers and only have a vague interest in X-Men just reading the big crossovers. Much as I dislike Bendis' constant talky style where everyone sounds the same... he writes a damn good Avengers book.

The Avengers franchise grows larger still. A new monthly to be written by Fred Van Lente, as reported by Newsrama and Comic Book Resources.

Perhaps some sort of "cosmic" Avengers, with Hercules perhaps (as Van Lente is co-writer of Hercules)? Maybe spinning out of the upcoming Chaos War event (also co-written by Van Lente)?

So a spinoff of Slott's Mighty Avengers.

Wow... that's a lot of Avengery books. Still, it's definitely THE franchise in the Marvel U at this point.

Hopefully it will feature Wolverine, Spider-Man, and Deadpool, as those characters don't get enough exposure.

Hahaha. Yeah I've been reading a lot of "Avengers" family books as well. I'm barely reading X-Men right now (just way too many books and finding myself not able to follow properly) and Spider-Man is meh which I find sad because he's been my favorite Marvel hero since I was four years old.

I've heard Avengers is the top seller now. Is that true?

Among the regular titles, yeah, it's been the case since New Avengers launched back in 2004.

Has there ever been a story starring Spider-Man AND Wolverine AND Deadpool? Or would that cause the Earth to implode into a black hole?
