Wow. "Original Sin" has yet to even begin, and Marvel is already pushing the next event...

AXIS

So glad I'm skipping OS as it looks like "AXIS" (An AvX sequel? Or just going to the well again ?) will probably crash directly into to many books I buy to ignore.
OS, the story, actually sounds promising. You should check out the zero issue with Nova, good stuff. Not too sure about some of the revelations though.

Fraction's run had funky things going on with their powers. Robinson's seems to have taken that concept up to the next level though where they are dying or whatever.
All the others (except Reed) pretty much lost everything at one point or another due to their machinations. Xavier, Namor, Black Bolt, Stark and Dr. Strange all lost what defined them. Everyone but Reed.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Original Sin the actual event seems very interesting and it will be equally interesting to see if Jason Aaron can pull off what editorial thinks he can since he appears to be elevated to an Architect. The ties-ins don't really interest me that much to be honest as I mentioned above.

Why does it surprise people that Marvel and DC would promote things they want us to buy and read early? They've both been doing this for quite some time now.

I hope not. Aaron is good with individual stories. But he is terrible at worldbuilding.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Jonathan Hickman revealed on a Reddit AMA that he will wrap up his Avengers run next May and that issue five of "S.H.I.E.L.D" is done, they're waiting for Dustin Weaver to finish issue six. I'm guessing we'll finally see it released by the end of the year.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Honestly after the revelations in the newest issue, Avengers is pretty much a third wheel to New Avengers where most of the action is.

It's also interesting if you check out the credits for New Avengers, Wil Moss, one of the DC editors who refused to go to Burbank edited it and you can see he is pretty much responsible for snagging Rags Morales for New Avengers.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Yep...I've often said that New Avengers is the better book as it is seeding everything else going on in the other books right now. I believe Hickman stated it was the "heart and soul" book when he first started on it.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

For many many months now all the Hickman Avengers books have been completely spinning their wheels. I am so sick of reading endless issues of Alt-Earths blowing up. What is the point of this endless repetition??? Nothing ever happens in these books. "Avengers World" is the only book where anything is happening, and even that is at a glacial pace (did we really need an entire issue of nothing but Shang-Chi and the Gorgan trading punches?).

Don't get me wrong it's an interesting story, but it needs to GO SOMEWHERE.

There was one notable event out of the three (!) Hickman Avengers books released today; Banner joined the Illuminati.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Hickman builds his runs using a slow burn...he expects you to pay attention to all the things that he seeds for the big pay off. The first pay off was Infinity. The second pay off will be Original Sin...remember apparently he was supposed to co-write at first before they settled on giving Aaron solo duties. To say nothing is happening means either you're not paying attention or don't understand what he's doing.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I definitely understand what he's going for, I'm just saying it's horribly repetitive. How many Alt-Earths do we need to see blow up to get his story told? At this point he's literally using a thinly veiled DC Universe pastiche.

If I was paying $4 a pop for these issues I'd be pissed

Also, I wouldn't mind seeing some more everyday crime fighting as well. Every issue of the many many Avengers issues this past ?year? have dealt with the Crisis on Infinite Earths to some degree (the AIM storyline feeds right into that). What are the normal super villains doing during all this?

Being fought by all the other Superheroes in the other 40 or so books, including Mighty Avengers and Uncanny Avengers.

Uncanny Avengers has been in an alternate timeline/reality for about six issues now.

^But that part isn't part of the alternate timeline.

He raided Xavier's corpse and grafted the parts of his brain that were responsible for telepathy onto his own brain. Supposedly in one alternate apocalyptic timeline it leads to the creation of a Red Skull Onslaught.
