I almost consider the adjectless X-Men book to be a team-up book as well.

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

She's leading the team in "X-Men" which is under Cyclops' banner and she's still a vampire.

Incredible Hulk #4: This has been one crazy ass book. If it were any writer other than Jason Aaron, I doubt I would find it as interesting and entertaining as I do. The only one small negative I have on it is that I'm not sure I like this new "crazy" Bruce. Banner appears to have finally snapped. Unable to deal with the obvious separation anxiety. I love this Amanda Von Doom character though. She's a great addition to the mythos...and this Island of Dr. Moreau take is fascinating. Next week we're supposed to learn who separated them.

Scarlet Spider #1: I have been looking forward to this book since it was announced and at least in my opinion delivers. Does a nice job of quickly summarizing Kaine's past, his new powers, introducing potential new cast members. The art is fantastic as well. The title logo I believe is Ben Reily's old book's design which is a nice homage indeed. Christopher Yost is the writer of the book and didn't like his run on "X-Men" but this is great so far.

I wasn't aware of the post-Schism/Regenesis status quo in X-Men, but that's the X-book that has had the most guest stars, seems like in every arc

More X-Men Vs Avengers battle teasers...personally I'll be ignoring most of these, but will be checking out Rouge Vs Ms. Marvel given the two character's history. Also Emma Vs Hulk is an interesting Battle.

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

^ Read X-Men Schism. Logan and Wolverine fought over differing ideologies. Logan decided to reopen the Westchester school and renamed it the Jean Grey School For Higher Learning while Scott leads Utopia. The X-Men split. It's been pretty awesome so far.

Also Jubliee was "sired" in the brutally bad Curse of the Mutants storyline which ran through the X books most of last year.

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

^ Fair enough...but it has been loads of fun so far! Seriously...I was pretty hesitant over the whole thing but Jason Aaron wrote Schism and is writing Wolverine and the X-Men which is the funnest comic out of the two flag ship books. Scott, bless his heart, is as boring as his book!

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

I won't touch WatXM. I can't stand Quenton Quire and the Hellfire tots are just the lamest-ass villains in all the history of lame-ass villains. Also-- just too much Wolverine. I long for the day when I can go an entire month without reading a single book with Wolverine in it without actively avoiding my regular books.

I liken my feelings about Wolverine to my feelings about the band Nirvana. Before I moved up to the Seattle area 12 years ago, Nirvana was one of my favorite bands. But up here in Seattle, the radio station's obsession with the band require them to play the same 10-15 songs over and over and over and over and over again, even all of these years later. Now I can barely stand the sound of them. Over-saturation.

OTOH, I'm really enjoying Uncanny. Issue 4 was one of the best X-books that I've read in a while.

Wolv & X-Men is pretty good. It more stars Kitty and Bobby and Hank than Wolv or Quentin. And the art's been great.

"X-Men" started off interesting with good art for the vampire and Lizard/Spidey stories, but it's been crap ever since.
