Yes Secret Avengers did suck, of course so did the whole last series.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I enjoyed Secret Avengers well enough. I'm especially happy that it (as well as the other Avengers titles) now has its own solid identity, instead of it just being about the Avengers fighting perfectly normal superhuman battles, but at night.

I'm waiting for the Secret Avengers to team up with the Secret Defenders to fight a Secret War. At night.

He started off okay on Ultimate X-Men (like the first two issues) then he pretty much went in the tank with it. He's only co-plotting, which I take that he is writing the arc based on Hickman's treatment or whatever so this isn't going to put me off the book or anything.
I would point you to the disaster that was Ultimates after Hickman left and the new writer who was supposedly also working with Hickman's plans.

I thought Sam Humphries has done an excellent job with Ultimate Comics Ultimates to be honest. I'm still following the series and I was originally going to drop it after Hickman left.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Next week...

Astonishing X-Men #59
Avengers Arena #5
Avenging Spider-Man #17
Deadpool Killustrated #2
FF #4
Gambit #9
Guardians of the Galaxy #0.1
Hawkeye #8
Journey Into Mystery #649
Marvel Universe Ultimate Spider-Man #11
Punisher War Zone #5
Thunderbolts #5
Ultimate Comics X-Men #23
Uncanny Avengers #4
Uncanny X-Men #2
Uncanny X-Force #2
X-Men Legacy #6
X-Treme X-Men #11
Young Avengers #2

My pulls-- FF, Hawkeye, Uncanny Avengers, Uncanny X-Men and Young Avengers.

Some quick thoughts on this week's purchases--

Indestructible Hulk #4-- Green skinned Hulk vs Blue skinned Attuma on the ocean's floor, with Lemurian sea-monsters thrown in for good measure. Fun stuff and Mark Waid continues to deliver. First two-parter of the series. I like that Marvel seems to be doing more done-in-one and shorter arcs since Marvel Now! started.

Savage Wolverine 2-- This is actually refreshing. After so much of Wolverine being shown as an invincible fighting machine that can't be harmed, it's nice to see him actually injured and vulnerable to harm. Of course, it gave Shanna a moment to shine in pulling his ass out of the fire long enough for his healing factor to kick in. Amadeus Cho arrived on the island in the same manner as Wolverine and within moments has the natives worshipping him as a God. Figures. This is another fun book, although the story didn't really progress much outside of the introduction of Cho to the mix, I enjoyed muchly.

Avengers 6-- The origin of Captain Universe, Doctor Spider-Ock raids the fridge, and... The White Event. Another good read from Jonathon Hickman. He continues to put his pieces on the board, and I get the feeling that things are about to get good.

Daredevil 23-- Foggy gets some bad news. Also, someone is trying to recreate the accident that gave Matt his powers by exposing transients to the same toxin that blinded Matt. This issue would be a good jumping on point for anyone thinking of picking up this title.

It know they're supposed to be the more militant team, but the whole Uncanny team look like a bunch of super-villains. It's kinda off-putting.

Aren't still the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants with delusion of grandeur still. Becuase if they are they probably look that way becuase they kind-of ARE super-villains.

It's better than his Dark Phoenix costume IMO.

Maybe it's just because I was out of Marvel for so long, but to me: Cyclops, Emma, Magik, those are all good guys! X-Men! I know that a lot has happened to shift this, but to see these characters acting and dressing like villains, while in the book titled Uncanny X-Men (you know, THE X-men book) it just doesn't feel like something I want to read.

Thor: God of Thunder is awesome, so was Daredevil which I've picked back up, and Captain Marvel is finally back on track now...not liking the art though.

They have been steering Cyclops towards villainy ever since Messiah Complex. As Morrison says, Cyclops is just Norman Bates without the serial killing.
