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

I don't think so. Marvel should just so it pisses me off to the point where I choose DC permanently until Marvel comes up with something actually constructive or someone comes along and fixes what Joe Q has done to my precious Spider-Man.

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

Finished reading issue three of Avengers and the cover for it is a little misleading. There was some great banter between Jessica Drew and Peter in this book and Tony, Captain America, and Nor-Varr go into the future. Oh and a corpse like Wanda was one of "Apocalypse's" Four Horsemen.

I was disappointed it wasn't really Apocalypse but I guess I should have expected it. I hate alternate universe versions of characters.

I thought issue 3 wasn't any good. I think I'll just stick to Secret Avengers. I do like Avengers Academy though.

Issue three was certainly the worst one so far...next issue looks okay but yeah Secret Avengers is easily the best and I've no interest in Avengers Academy.

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

Academy is not interesting me at all. I like the main Avengers (JRJR!) so far and New Avengers. Secret Avengers isn't wow-ing me so far since I don't care about Serpent Crowns or most of the characters involved. Thunderbolts is pretty cool so far with GORGEOUS moody art.

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

So far Secret and New Avengers are keeping my attention but we'll see.....both Bendis and Brubaker are way too in love with long meandering decompression. Outside of POWERS I never met a Bendis book I didn't eventually drop because it took forever to go anywhere and Bru's Cap has been teetering on the edge for a while now.

I loved Brubaker's work on Cap and it's translating well to Secret Avengers. It's an off-beat team with off-beat characters that makes for potentially interesting stories.

I'm also enjoying the new Thunderbolts series.

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

Bendis announced some kind of big Avengers crossover event at the Avengers panel today. Not sure exactly what it is about because details weren't given but a very nice looking banner was released.

I've yet to read New Avengers but have been meaning to.

A crossover makes sense.

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

The main Avengers book is starting to frustrate me. After a great set-up in the first issue, the 2nd and 3rd issues haven't really advanced the plot all that much. It feels like Bendis is trying to stretch a story that would have been better told in four issues into six.

And what do you all think of trhe comic-con announcement that...

Yeah I read about that and that is truly WTF, but I'll be interested to see how it plays out. Kinda spoils how World War Hulks is going to end though!

As for Bendis stretching out a story unnecessarily... that's every freakin' book he's ever written Hell in Ultimate Spidey he doesn't even become Spidey until what #4 or something?!

Yeah, that's one of the main reasons I usually end up dropping a Bendis book: he decompresses the hell out of every story. There's usually about 3 issues worth of plot in every 6-8 issues published.

That and the fact that all of his characters talk in the exact same smart-assed voice.

But for some reason, Spider-Man, the actual smart-ass character, sounds off.

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

Read issue three of Secret Avengers and it's back on track. This new Shadow Council is interesting as is Nick Fury being a part of it. Reading him call someone else Director and 'sir' was weird though. I'm convinced that he has some sort of plan regarding this organization. Possessed Nova was kind of fun though. The next issue teaser shows Steve about to put on the Nova helmet!!
