That wouldn't actually be that bad of a story actually.

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

It's happened. Marvel has confirmed the project that would mean, according to Joe Q, that the company is "officially out of ideas." As rumored, Spider-Men is a 616/Ultimate Universe crossover.

It's sort of pointless what with ultimate Peter being ultimate dead.

^ No it isn't pointless. Miles has been just as awesome so far.

Rich thinks that Fraction an Aja are actually doing a Hawkeye mini-series not a Gambit mini-series. He really is an arrogant sod isn't he?

If he is right, then the chances of Fraction being Bendis's replacement on Avengers just went up.

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

I thought you stated a few pages ago that Hickman was the replacement on "Avengers", in fact I believe you implied two writers...so Hickman and Fraction?

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

Avenging Spider-Man 6-- A nice set-up for the crossover, but that's what it is--set-up. We meet all of our protagonist characters, discover the motivations for each, and put a plan into action. To be continued...

Fantastic Four 605-- Another winner from Hickman. A done-in-one with Reed and Nathanial taking a road trip through time, and Reed learns another lesson in appreciating friends and family while you can.

Journey Into Mystery 636-- The conclusion of the "The Terrorism Myth". CBR has this book up for nomination for "Best New Series of 2011" (An odd honor for book in its 630's, but I digress...) Other Marvel nominees include Daredevil, FF, Wolverine and the X-Men and Ultimate Spider-Man. Worthy nominees all, but JiM is by far the least appreciated of those nominated. I've been surprised at how fun and charming the adventures of 'lil Loki have been. If you haven't been following JiM, this really is one you should catch up with in trade. I think you'll be surprised.

New Avengers 24-- Despite being labled as an AvX crossover, this issue really has very little to do with AvX. It's mostly a Luke and Jessica issue, with Jessica having second thoughts about being an Avenger while raising a child. NA is a book I buy anyway, and I like Luke and Jessica, so I didn't really mind so much. However, if you're looking for any progress or revelations in the AvX storyline, this one will be a disappointment.

Winter Soldier 4-- Bucky teams up with Dr. Doom in order to avoid Doom being framed for an international incident. "Team-up" is a bit of an over-statement as Bucky is largely just along for the ride in this issue as Doom kicks all of the appropriate asses. Looking forward to next month's conclusion.

Avengers Assemble 2-- This book should be really good, but it really isn't. The creative team and the Avengers team are both top-notch, but the story here is bland and the villains uninteresting. Disasppointing.

Uncanny X-Men 10-- A fun finale to the final team-up between X-Men and Avengers before AvX. I felt that Captain America's rebuke to Cyclops at the end was undeserved. It's not as if Cyke took his team off to do something totally unrelated, they were still going after an escapee from The Peak, and were conducting a rescue of their own at the same time. Maybe if the story had gone its originally planned 3 issues, there could have been more context supplied.

Yes I believe Hickman is the likely choice.

But if Fraction is writing Hawkeye, then the chances of him being Bendis's replacement goes up significantly.

Fair enough...I'd be less excited for Fraction on "Avengers" than Hickman.

Newsarama gives both Fantastic Four 605 and Avenging Spider-Man 6 10 out of 10 reviews.

Avenging Spidey was good...but it wasn't that good.

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

Yeah, like I said, It felt to me mostly like set-up and introductions leading to the main event. Although, I can't bring myself to really disagree with anything else said in the review. I probably would have given it an 8 out of 10, myself.

However, I DO agree on how good Fantastic Four 605 was. Just wonderful.

It always is! I'll have a proper review in a bit. Just about to get around to it.

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

I'm revelling in... Realing the disturbing fact that not only is Luke cage an Avenger but he's THE Avenger... MR. Avenger.

I honestly feel like I've gone to sleep for 20 years and woken up into a weird nightmare version of reality. By rights I have to get back to the present some how and stop this form happening!

Was mocking bird flirting with Spider-Man in new Avengers 24?

I mean, her frakking husband has been playing kissing face with a spider, so proportional retaliation insists that she has to take a Spider to the mat too.
