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

-Avenging Spider-Man #6 (looks like Frank and Matt are joining the fun!)
-Fantastic Four #605 (Future Arc!! Hickman!!!)
-Scarlet Spider #4 (My Name is Kaine...Kaine Parker!)
-Uncanny X-Men #10 (I am still sticking with this after last issue's awesomeness)
-Winter Solider #4

My Marvel pulls are overwhelming my DC pulls right now, which I thought would be the case. I think I'm down to seven 52 books, which really will be down to five by the end of the summer I think.

^ Pretty much the same case with me. The relaunch has a lot to do with my return to Marvel but really Marvel has been pulling me back over the last two years.

it was actually all the X-Men stuff that drew me back slowly. for awhile there the only Marvel stuff i read was the cosmic events like Annihilation. but i kept reading various X-Men trades.

then after Blackest Night i was kinda tired of constant events and started checking out other Marvel books.

Interesting. For me it was a combination of Hickman's run on Fantastic Four, the X-Men stuff, and Dan Slott's run on Spider-Man that has brought be all the way back!

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

I got back into comics thanks to DC and Green Lantern, and only read DC for a couple years before I slowly expanded to Marvel. But for the past couple of years, Marvel has definitely been top dog. And now, with Nu52, there's only a handful of books I truly like (Action Comics, Batman, Green Lantern) from DC.

I've always been a Marvel Zombie. My first super-hero comic was Fantastic Four 233, "Mission for a Dead Man" by John Byrne and from there, I quickly discovered the rest of the Marvel U.

I got into DC briefly right around the time Byrne started his Superman run (I was buying an occasional Batman before that) through the end of the Giffen/DeMatties Justice League, but lost interest in DC after that.

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

Gi Joe comics in the 80s sucked me in.

I never really thought much about Klara from the Runaways before.

The timelost thing is kinda nifty, but what if the Runaways hadn't ranaway with her because if this is what she can do as a 10 year old...

By the late 1930s, when her abilities are a hundred fold more potent, we're not just talking about another romantic love interest to toss inbetween Xavier and Magneto, but she could have led a third camp at odds with their schism from a new tac or... Charles and Eric could have been working for Klara and mutant kind might have been unified under a single school of thought even before the birth of the atomic age.

Scary?

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

Finally got to read Avengers Academy 28-- part two of "War With The Runaways". "War" was a bit of an over-statement here. It was more like "a quickly resolved disagreement with The Runaways", but I enjoyed it anyway as I love the Runaways and Christos Gage nailed all of their voices. As there were definitely seeds planted for future stories with The Runaways, I hope to see them appear here again. I loved this exchange between Victor and Pym--

Pym: You don't have to call me "Dr. Pym".
Victor: "Grandpa?"
Pym: "Dr. Pym" is fine.
Looking forward to next issue's AvX crossover. Given the covers for AA29 and 31, it appears that the Academy students siding with the Runaways over Pym and Tigra in this issue may just be a bit of foreshadowing for what's to come in AvX.

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

C2E2 teasers are starting to be rolled out. This one is a "Gambit" project being written by Matt Fraction for August it looks like, near the conclusion of "Avengers Vs X-Men".

They talk about him being a master thief.

But I just don't see Gambit getting past any sort of technology invented after 1970.

Unless, you know, he's never mentioned his years at MIT where he studied electrical engineering and computer science?

Yeah, it's possible this is going to be a series that brings Remy back to it's roots. It will be nice to see him doing something relevant, he hasn't been that to me in a few years.

The thing about his roots.

'Katrina"

He goes back to his old home town, and it's gone.

The shanties and tenements he was raised in got washed away.

Remy doesn't have a home to go home to.

i mean seriously ater metropolis got infected witht he B13 Virus and was suddenly overnight a 30th century city... What the fuck was crime suppposed to do about how every thing had left them behind...

Ditto with New Orleans.
