I realize that. But I think the viewer should be able to experience everything the reader does.
If the inconsistency is one of the strengths of AvsX then perhaps yes, but I strongly doubt it. The likely course is for the person handling the adaptation to smooth over, patch up and simplify the inconsistencies.

I was just going for a bit of humor. I failed miserably, I see. Nothing new there

Re: Avengers Vs. X-Men -- Speculation, Spoilers, and Discussion

It would be funny if there was something amusing about this book's inconsistency problems, unfortunate there is not It's probably the number one flaw of the event...and what's keeping it from being awesome.

Is any massive crossover consistent in the characterizations in the tie-ins versus the main series? Look at Iron Man in Civil War

It's the editors job to kick the shit out of the assistant editors to gently massage and manipulate the writers to become beholden to a singular vision.

Writers fight this.

Re: Avengers Vs. X-Men -- Speculation, Spoilers, and Discussion

Tony was pretty much an ass hole during the entirety of Civil War. Maybe JMS in the Amazing Spider-Man tie-ins he was toned down a bit. Otherwise though he was pretty consistent.

This entire project was the vision of Marvel editorial to transition into the new creative teams. The inconsistency is their fault for the seeming lack of communication and coordination between the various creators.

Re: Avengers Vs. X-Men -- Speculation, Spoilers, and Discussion

Well early on, Stark was smug about doing the right thing.

Which is permissible.

Later when it was pretty clear that he was wrong, he still thought he was right, and was just as smug about it.

Which is delusional.

Captain America was just about as equally tunnel visioned.

Attacking S.H.I.E.L.D. and Iron Man in defense of his point was stupid.

Attack Washington.

Take and hold the White House.

Honestly.

What contingencies does the secret service have for when the Avengers go bad?

Which again is stupid.

In the dead of night, while they're sleeping, you replace or brain wash most to all of congress to control the vote on everything to put the world right overturning the Superpowers Registration Act and castrate Tony Stark.

Which is just about nothing compared to the universal rape they used to give Spider-Man back his secret identity.

Once all twelve issues are out I'm going to sit down and read them all in order. I'm curious how it will play by reading them all back to back like this.

12 issues is incomplete.

So, so many crossovers.

Re: Avengers Vs. X-Men -- Speculation, Spoilers, and Discussion

Yeah that's really the problem with most of the Marvel events, the "core" event books are not really linear, you still have those "STOP! DON'T READ THIS UNTIL YOU'VE READ SUCH AND SUCH ISSUE!" warnings or things happen in the recaps that make you go 'huh wha?'

I really think Marvel should just do a year... without an event. Just let Marvel NOW play out and tell people... just get the MU back where it should be.

Why on earth would they eat into their profits and synergy like that?

To do that... They would have to fire people or/and cancel books.

Re: Avengers Vs. X-Men -- Speculation, Spoilers, and Discussion

I dunno, did anything happen in a tie-in that directly impacted the main series? The only thing I can think of is the Iron Fist backstory in New Avengers (but they explained it enough in the main book probably) and the brewing conflict between Colossus and Magik in that one ish of Wolverine & the X-Men.

Re: Avengers Vs. X-Men -- Speculation, Spoilers, and Discussion

Secret Avengers was all about the team in space trying to head the Phoenix off before it got to earth.

That stuff was fun.

I'm pretty sure Valkyrie and Thor had a drunken rut.

It all becomes quickly a white noise mulch.
