Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I don't have an issue with the Angela thing. To be honest though most of the Original Sin reveals don't exactly excite me. The one that intrigues me the most is the Tony being involved with the Gamma Bomb explosion. Ever since "Avengers" Marvel has tied these two together which I quite like.

I'm not feeling the Silk thing from Spider-Man.

I don't have an issue with this; the mythological Odin got around a bit, so what's to say that his 616 version didn't?
The Mythological asgardians bear very little resemblance to the Marvel Comics version. It's even debatable that Odin was the King of the Gods and not just a "retcon" due to a bias in many of the primary sources.

My problem is rather they are inserting a non-Marvel character (they don't own!) into the Thor comic book mythology to make them more part of the Marvel universe. I honestly don't have the greatest faith in Aaron. Everything after his God Killer story has been dreck and he doesn't have an ability at world building. But then Marvel really has mishandled Thor after the JMS inspired relaunch. Everything from Siege, to the Fraction run to Fear Itself to Jason Aaron. It really shows they are operating at a mindset more reminiscent from the DeFalco era and haven't learned what they did wrong since.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Angela's already been a part of 'Guardians of the Galaxy' for the last several issues and she's worked out just fine there. So I have no problem with them making her even more a part of the universe by tying her into Thor.

Do they have full rights to do whatever want with Angela for as long as they want or does Neil Gaiman still have some of kind of control over what they do with her? Could he decide he doesn't like what they're doing and not let the use her anymore?

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

On March 21, 2013, Comic Book Resources announced that Angela would be introduced into the Marvel Comics Universe as a major character later in the year to coincide with Neil Gaiman's return to the company.[1] BleedingCool later confirmed that Marvel Comics had completely bought the rights to Angela from Gaiman.[7]
Lock stock and barrel?

Unless someone has refuted this claim from Bleeding Cool?

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I'm reading the new Fantastic Four.

They are dropping continuity that seems to line up with recent history.

But those awful new red costumes force me to believe that this is not 616.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

The new Fantastic Four is okay, better than Fraction's run on the main book. It seems to be a bit of a "loose" reboot of sorts continuity wise unless Robinson is just ignoring Fraction and Hickman's runs? I really haven't been able to tell.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Oh no, issue 3, which I just read, mentioned both Johnny Dying, and being reborn in the Negative Zone, as well as the tour of time and space they took looking for a cure to their mysterious illness, and Valeria seeming pissed about being lied to about how her family were all weeks away from dying and they said nothing... Which is the most childlike thing she has done in years.

Personally I'm still holding a grudge for all that Santa Claus bullshit they pulled.

In issue three they also mentioned Johnny's Skrull wife, which seemed like a teaser for things to come.

So yes, even despite all that... I still think it's the wrong Earth.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I've yet to get to the latest issue...but that's good. It's kind of weird they haven't really done anything post Hickman...which isn't surprising his run set the bar high for anyone to follow him IMO. This is supposed to be "The Fall" so maybe they're getting ready to do something big afterwards with them or something? I dunno.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

We saw aftermath of the fall in issue one.

Everything since then has been one of them writing a letter set "X" months earlier.

Well technically Reed is the only one amongst the Illuminati who never really paid the piper for his involvement in Civil War, World War Hulk and the Skrull Invasion.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

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.


Hickman has promised that the Illuminati will be exposed soon and there will be consequences from it this time.

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.

And Marvel celebrates its 100th anniversary...

Wait, what?

(This actually sounds fun.)
