Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

Wolverine and the X-Men is by far the best thing thats come out of Schism.

Don't care that much for UXM because of the rather forced characterization for Cyclops.

Secret Avengers was the one Avengers title I was reading mainly for Moon Knight and Black Widow. Since Moon Knight got a solo I dropped it though. Just for Black Widow wasn't enough justification. I miss her prematurely cancelled solo book.

I dropped it when I saw Ellis was going be the writer. Not keen on his mainstream superhero work.

I was going to order the Black Widow..just as they canceled it. My typical luck, I suppose.
I do find her character more interesting than many other Marvels female characters. It is a pity that she did not get her solo movie like Iron Man and some of the other Avengers did.

Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

There is a rumoured Black Widow solo movie in development. They're waiting for "Avengers" to come out first before Marvel Studios activates it's second wave of character films, and there had been four films released before "Avengers". Scarlet Johannsen was only just signed for "Iron Man 2" and "Avengers" I believe...not sure the current status of her Marvel Studios contract. It could be a mult-film deal.

i like all the non-Bendis Avengers books. Rick Remender of Uncanny X-Force and Venom will be taking over Secret Avengers soon.

^ Yep. I'll probably be jumping back aboard. I recently have gotten back into "Avengers" thanks to the Hammer War and am looking forward to the Ultron War...Bendis though I think needs to wrap up his run soon. He's stagnating.

^And Bendis is indeed soon wrapping things up for his Avengers run...

http://www.comicbookresources.com/?p...ticle&id=35772

And not only will 2012 will be a particularly big year for Marvel's top-billed super team, it will also mark Bendis' last year working on the Avengers titles. The writer began crafting the adventures of Earth's Mightiest Heroes in 2004, and after eight years, he's finally ready to bring his run to an end.

"I'm going to wrap up 'Avengers' and 'New Avengers.' At the same time the first storyline of 'Avengers Assemble' will be done," Bendis told CBR. "It's a good time to move on to other things. Before I go, though, I'm ending things big. I'm in countdown mode. You know when you're watching a show like 'Breaking Bad,' and every episode feels like the second to last episode? That's where I'm at. I've been on the Avengers longer than anybody in the history of the book. When you take everything into account, I've written over 200 issues. I'm very, very proud of that, and what we have coming up this summer gives me the opportunity to go out on a high note. I know enough about showbiz to know that's a great time to go."

by the way feel free to discuss all things Marvel in this thread as it was originally intended to involve the greater banner of Heroic Age. Now Shattered Heroes.
If this is going to be an ongoing discussion thread for Marvel, then maybe a thread title change would be appropriate. That way we don't get excess threads like the X-Men vs Avengers thread. Maybe "Marvel ongoing discussion, formerly Heroic Age"?

Title change sounds like a good idea imo if OP is up for it.

Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

^ Agreed and yeah if a mod wants to change the title I'm all for it since Heroic Age has passed and we're under the Shattered Heroes banner. I figured that Bendis might leave soon...after the Ultron War story line next year would be my guess.

Hickman but don't think that is likely. Maybe Brubaker if he's game.

Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

Dan Slott would be my first choice. Followed by Christos Gage, Kieron Gillen or maybe Mike Carey, who just wrapped a long run on X-Men: Legacy. ETA: Or Chris Yost.

As for Bendis, while I do agree that it is time for him to move on, I've largely enjoyed his run. He gets a lot of hate, but he turned The Avengers into Marvel's best-selling franchise, and that hasn't been a bad thing.

I dunno if Slott could handle an ensemble book. I mean I like him on Amazing but he still has problems writing Peter as mature, he makes him too goofy when other writers don't do that...Hickman for instance or even Cage when he guest wrote. Cage would be excellent. Chris Yost needs to stay away from Avengers. His X-Men: First to Last crossover in the summer was terribly disappointing.
