Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I'm glad AoU is done. Its the first big event I haven't read since Civil War. I read the first issue of Age of Ultron, and it was exactly what I expected. A big event that will just pull out a reset button, and not effect anything since it didn't actually happen. Well, ok, I suppose somethung did happen. I mean, I bet it was better than age of X (which I only read all of because after reading the first part I needed to see how it ended, and it was probably more pointless than AoU). Aou atleast introduced some random character that I guess used to be in Spawn and put Galactus on a multiverse roadtrip to the Ultimate U. Thats less than even what Chaos War did (and it did very little) but much more than Age of X, so I guess they didn't completely fail.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Honestly I'm waiting for it to go to trade with the tie ins or just hit the Marvel Unlimited service - like AvsX did. I don't think I'll be too upset if I have to wait maybe until Christmas

But I'm still trying to figure out why in the hell would they bring in ANGELA of all the MacFarlane characters... why her? She's not THAT interesting really. And she's totally stuck in the 90s with her outfit too. Like totally man. Bodacious bod, skimpy bikini outfit and mega hair. She looks so 'Extreeeeeeeeeme!!' Oh i'm sorry X-Treme!

Because that was the one that Neil Gaiman won ownership of in court?

^ Yep and now Marvel owns her 100 percent. Apparently Gaiman has sold her to them.

I hope they put her in a team-up book with Miracleman.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

We've all met Neil Gaimen, or people like Neil Gaimen.

They still think it's the 80s.

For the cost of 2 packs of cigarettes and 8 black coffees a day you can sponsor a discredited English journalist turned prolific Novelist and comic book author to keep them out of crackwhore dungeons like Marvel's House of Ideas.

"Sigh"

I don't get it, either, and I remember Spawn #9 and the Angela mini-series. *shrug*

Yet, Quesada compares her emergence in the Marvel Universe to Avengers #4 and the Silver Age return of Captain America. Which demonstrates that either Quesada has no idea what he's talking about or we simply don't know enough about her role in the Marvel Universe.

And I can't dismiss the idea that Marvel bought Angela solely to annoy Todd McFarlane. In the wider world, that move doesn't make any sense -- the man on the street has no idea who McFarlane is and may only have a glancing familiarity with Gaiman -- but Quesada is petty enough to do it.

On a tangential note, if Marvel if going to treat its multiverse in a pre-Crisis DC fashion, as appears likely, I for one would really like to see the Ultraverse resurrected.

They may have simply bought her simply because some one was trying to sell her.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

It's just Marvel hyping something that doesn't really matter to the majority of fans. The only people who would remotely be excited about Angela's inclusion into the Marvel Universe are Angela fans...or hardcore Spawn fans. I still think this is just a pre-cursor to the introduction of Marvel Man.

There are hardcore Spawn fans?

As far as I can tell, even Gaiman's hardcore fans, and they are many, are giving this a yawn.

I've tried to entertain that thought, but I keep coming back to the problem that there's no connection between the two characters -- except that Gaiman created one and wrote for the other. One is an angel that fights demons. The other is Captain Marvel. Yeah, not seeing the connection.

With the end of AoU, there doesn't really need to be a connection between them, does there? Miracleman can show up in the MU the same way Angela did.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

It's the use of the word "precursor." It implies a connection, that one event arises because of the other.
