Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Dear god!

No Bryan Hitch in Age of Ultron 6?

And they had to get someone that underwhelming?

They could have kept the book shelffed for another year if it had meant that Hitch would have finished the final issues.

I'll be interested to see what Remender does with Cap after it concludes, which I think is supposed to be pretty soon.
It's not hard to guess. Cap fights an alternate timeline or universe version of himself/the avengers/his enemies. It's essentially the only trick Remender has used consistently. Honestly it's getting boring and worn out.

Unfortunately, when Hitch drew Age of Ultron, it was only supposed to be five issues. When they decided to expand it, Hitch had long since moved on to other projects and Marvel didn't even tell him that it was going to be a longer series. Plus, as he made clear in a CBR interview, he had no great affection for the project because he was nothing more than an artist for hire.

So wait, it wasn't Hitch being late with art, it was Marvel delaying it themselves. Why? It would have been a better swan song to Bendis's Avengers run than the Wasp stuff and the Luke Cage issue.

Because Marvel decided that Age of Ultron would be better suited as a line-wide event than an Avengers-family event.

Reed is dead.

Wolverine and the X-Men AU just expanded on the road trip to go find Pym.

Reed is dead which makes Sue fair game.

Almost - he did say on his twitter feed that he offered to do the additional issues and they said no.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

As I mentioned before, the delay issues had nothing to do with late art...as Allyn stated editorial made a decision to make this a company event rather than just allow it to serve as Bendis' Avengers finale. Big mistake, and compared to what we're getting out of Age of Ultron...Janet's return was much better story IMO.

Superior Spider-Man #8.

You know what? I am done with the Peter ghost. I'm tired of his smugness. I'm tired of how he jumps to conclusions and only grudgingly accepts that Doc Ock is right. I'm done with Peter.

I have no idea what the shocking reveal in #9 will be. Marvel has enough Superior books on the schedule that I'm pretty sure that it's not going to be Peter getting his body back.

I'm done with Peter.

And if SpiderOck gets it on with Black Widow, good on him.

Yes, because a guy who beat the shit out of a two pranksters, killed a guy, and beat the shit out someone who barely qualifies as a villain just because he stole one of his old toys possible to help a sick kid and is the king of arrogant hypocritical duoche bags WHO TRIED TO MURDER MOST A THE F#%KING HUMAN RACE BECAUSE OF HIS EGO and is in currently IN PETER PARKER'S BODY WHICH HE STOLE and had every intention of leaving Parker TO DIE is so much better.

Oh and FYI don't get used to Doc Ock as "Spider-Man". Because 2014, Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Otto's eviction notice are just around the corner.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I don't see any smugness or any jumping to conclusion on Peter's part. Otto stole his body and is in the process of ruining his life and his reputation that Peter has spent years building. Peter has also acknowledged a couple of things "positive" that Otto has done as Spider-Man right now, and for the most part he's reacted horrified and disgusted with how Otto has been acting. He's not living up to his promise to him at all. I've not read yesterday's issue yet, but I just don't see the same behavior from Peter that Allyn does. Slott hasn't altered his characterization of him either IMO and I've been reading for the past couple of years too.


Speaking of Superior...new Dan Slott interview regarding upcoming issues:

Peter doesn't have to admit that Otto has done anything good, and will not, and cannot.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Nova was great again. This is turning into a surprisingly good book, and as mentioned before perhaps Loeb's best work in years and the McGuiness art is just spectacular. Also it appears like Loeb is going to introduce a 616 version of the Chitauri which should be interesting to see.

This is splitting hairs surely since the Chitauri are Skrulls?
