I'm confused Guy are you literally, seriously saying that Steve Rogers was an artist at Marvel Comics in the actual continuity???

^Yes, he was. I remember that as well. The book he drew was even Captain America, for that matter. IIRC, it was in the Gruenwald run, pre- John Walker Cap.

Remember the weird "Marvels Comics" they put out in--I think it was the late 90's--which were supposed to be what the content of the Marvel Universe comics really were? I think there was a Fantastic Four book which was fairy close because it was "officially licensed" and then Thor and X-Men books that were pretty off the mark because the writers had to make it all up.

Bingo.

The real irony was that the bloke drawing Captain America drawing Captain America was a bit shit.

(See! Turtle doesn't think I'm crazy. )

He used to use one of those A2 art-folder briefcases to carry his shield.

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

UPS left one of my LCS's boxes at the warehouse, so I won't get Avengers Academy until tomorrow.

Daredevil 10.1-- A great recap of the story to date and an entertaining read to boot. I LOL'd at Daredevil barging in on the Mega-Crime meeting at the Lateverian embassy to ask the leaders what is taking them so long to destroy him.

The way DD took out Black Spectre so totally and easily shows the reader exactly what Matt has in the Omega-drive and why Mega-crime is so anxious to get it back. Also, this should take the heat off of Felicia's back.

Those who are planning on jumping in with the DD/Spidey/Punisher team-up might do well to pick up this issue as well.

It really is a good time to be a fan of this DD run. with 10 out last week and 10.1 this week and the crossover starting next week, that's going to be five consecutive weeks of Daredevil goodness in a row.

AvX 1-- I'll say more in the other thread, but to me, it seems like both Cap and Cyclops are kind of being jerks here.

^ I posted my AVX thoughts in the other thread...Scott isn't a jerk perse...he is just totally blinded by his philosophical views right now that he can't see anything beyond them or any other viewpoint. His way or the highway. It is why he comes into conflict with people now. Erik put it best, Scott is sounding like him.

Fearless was... readable. Didn't really care about the story but at least a lot of heroes were in the mix. On the whole, "Fear Itself" just felt like a huge waste of time. What changed, really? Bucky is underground now?

And Colossus is now one part Juggernaut.

But, yeah nothing major. Fear Itself was essentially a cash grab crossover event. Glad I didn't buy it now. Learned my lesson years ago with these "must read universe altering" events that happen every 14 months. The industry has become the little boy who cried wolf. Fool me once(ok a few times)... but not any more.

Pre-internet when details weren't readily available they could get away with this schtick of "it's must read". Now, not so much--at least if one is inclined to do some leg work and find out anyway.

I would say that Fear Itself is the first Marvel crossover since Civil War that did not radically alter the Marvel Universe.

Well, I guess World War Hulk didn't do that much, except to the Hulk... and Hercules... and Amdeus Cho...

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

^ Agreed. Fear Its Self as we discussed already in it's thread turned out to be utterly and completely pointless since they just essentially reserved everything they did in it. Thor is back, Bucky is working back ops missions with 'Tasha (in an awesome books). Most of things event books now really serve a couple of purposes, the first of course is to make money, the second is to serve as a launching pad for more books or spin off series to continue to make more money. Fracton kept talking about the book has having widespread effects across the Marvel U but we didn't really see any or have much fall out.


I just saw the preview for Fantastic Four #605...and I can't wait for the future arc!!! It's gonna be awesome.

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

Speaking of FF, why didn't that "Forever" epic have any impact whatsoever on the larger Marvel Universe? Manhattan was halfway destroyed and all the heroes were involved, yet no other book acknowledges it!

eh, with Marvel's compressed time i'd say New York is destroyed every other week.

I was at one of those 'closeout stores' and found a Fantastic Four CD-ROM saying it has every issue from FF#1 - 2004 including annuals. It was 75% off, I got it for $8. Figured it was worth the gamble.

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

The Forever arc wasn't acknowledged in any other book because it was mainly a Fantastic Four arc and one could argue it was a self contained temporal event. Just like the Ultron future we saw at the start of Bendis's second "Avengers" run. Or how about Amazing Spider-Man having Doc Ock basically take over the Earth right now, and have the Sinister Six incapacitate the Avengers? It is possible of course that these various events take place during several different time periods of the year. Who knows though.
