Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Haven't been reading ASM, so I had no fear of the spoiler.



Of course, as mentioned, it might just be a joke on Slott's part.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

We've speculated on that very thing in this thread, and indeed it could be an attempt at misdirection on Slott's part. He is very active on social media and most likely aware of the theories online. Also Amazing Spider-Man would give no indication as to his identity anyway, so if you were reading or not it wouldn't matter.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

^I knew that I had seen speculation to the effect somewhere, but I guess it didn't really register.

Anyway, next weeks previews from CBR...

A+X #1
Avenging Spider-Man Annual #1
AvX: Consequences #4
Captain Marvel #6
Hit-Girl #4
The Mighty Thor #22
New Mutants #50
Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #16.1
Ultimate Comics X-Men #18
Wolverine and the X-Men #19
Winter Soldier #12
X-Men Legacy #275

For me, AvX Consequences, Captain Marvel (dropping with this issue), Hit-Girl, New Mutants (last issue) and Winter Soldier.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

The ending of Hickman's Fantastic Four run was really touching. That was a really good series. I thought that Fraction's ending to Iron Man was very solid as well with a great final battle against the Mandarin. I loved the Dark Reign part of the run, then it spun its wheels for a long time after that, but the ending arc was great!

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I just finished reading FF#23...what a magnificent and touching story. Hickman is going to be incredibly missed with these characters. This felt like more of a good-bye issue than did Fantastic Four. One thing that I found really interesting though...was Hickman hinting at his upcoming "Avengers" run in the story that Future Franklin was telling Johnny and Ben? Or was he describing "Days of Future Past" as well? I couldn't really tell but it seemed familiar to me and I wouldn't put it past the glorious bastard that is Hickman that he slipped something in there.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Punisher War Zone #1 was a good set up issue for what is to come. It's a sobering reminder that this is the beginning of the end of one of the better 616 Punisher runs by one writer. Solid charaterizations, especially enjoyed how Rucka handled the Logan/Frank discussion at the end. The fact that Logan just shows up in one of his secrete lairs and that Black Widow will have to find him is interesting. Logan does not agree with Steve or Peter on this and doesn't volunteer with how to find Frank.

Next up, Black Widow -- soldier vs spy

Anyone else get this?

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I've caught up with and finished IM #527, which finishes the run of writer Matt Fraction. I'm told that his work on the book has been pretty divisive with the hardcore fans of Iron Man.. Character assassination of Tony Stark, knocking him off the wagon, and making him a reactionary, less heroic superhero. I can see this, but at the same time I was fairly engaged by the storytelling of the book. Not being a huge comics reader (but loving the tech), I picked up the book with the start of Extremis and kept up with it. It wasn't huge, but it wasn't bad IMO.

But then, I went back and read some V.3 stuff on the recommendation of some aforementioned hardcore IM fans, and I see what they mean. Pre-Extremis, Tony was certainly more heroic (actually saving people with heroic deeds, versus concentrating solely on the corporate shenanigans and attacks on his companies). There were more colorful villains and lots more crossing over with other heroes; also, the action was IMO much more well done, with the tech being explained and used (versus showing simple energy blasts back and forth with no real choreography).

Also, while I really liked the Extremis armor, the Bleeding Edge armor that followed it really wasn't likeable (and I know it wasn't popular with readers). The various V.3 armors were artfully rendered and nicely shown in action, and with more believable tech than the nigh-magical stuff that culminated in Bleeding Edge, which was more shown without ever being really explained.

Overall, this Matt Fraction person had a very different take on writing Iron Man, and while I didn't hate it, I certainly preferred this more classic take on storytelling that preceded him. I'm not a hardcore comics guy, but I'll keep up casually reading IM and looking forward to the next team's take on Tony Stark.

I haven't read Iron Man for a while, but will be on board for new writer Kieron Gillen. Apparently, the new direction will build upon Tony's spiritual epiphany during the Phoenix encounter.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Yeah I'm looking forward to that run more now, especially after we got a glimpse of it in AVX: Consequences #3.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I posted this over in the DC thread, and I figured there might be people here who don't go there that might be interested in this.
Tor has an article about a writers' tips panel that Hickman, Brian K. Vaughn, and Grant Morrison did at NYCC. I thought there were some pretty interesting insights into the writers' methods.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I think this definitely rules out Alpha as Superior Spider-Man. It also reveals that Peter is alive and working at Horizon Labs still. My bet is still on Miguel O'Hara as Superior.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

CBR has a new interview with Slott up now.

One of the questions dealt with the Alpha solicitation:
I think there was a little bit of miscommunication in that interview, though. I think the scenes that writer Joshua Hale Fialkov was talking about, if they go down the way he says, would clearly have to be before "Amazing Spider-Man" #700 or told in flashback. That's all I can say right now.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

So he's saying that Peter won't make it through #700? I don't know how it was a "miscommunication" on Fialkov's part since he very clearly stated that Alpha would still be reporting to Peter at Horizons. That doesn't seem like a "miscommunication" at all to me.
