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

As someone who collects Omnibus material his 57 issue run + Giant Size and other one offs are enough for 2 volumes of material. I'd be game for that. I guess it's the 'mileage varies' but I've grown fonder of him the last two years. When written well, like he has been of late the gruff, military mind of Ross in a Hulk body is intriguing.

Incredible Hulk #9 - I enjoyed the Atlantean 'hick' town adventure that Bruce got Hulk into for this issue. He near instantly asks to speak to Namor, which I liked. It's just the little nods of characters knowing their world I like. Keeping continuity within the story by mention of the PitBull story from #8 when he demands info from the Atlantean Doc(I don't recall her being given a name) how her procedure and PitBull could be related. Then there is the transition element gimmick where just like he wakes up under the ocean in #8, he awakens in space on the last page. Looking forward to #10. Bummer Arron is leaving the book. Was looking forward to a long run like he had on Wolverine for Hulk, I'd settle for the Ghost Rider run. It's like each run is now 1/2 as long as the last one. His next stint will be just 6 issues the way he's going.

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

^ I agree with everything you've written about IH#9. Jason Aaron will be missed when he leaves, and the art is fantastic.

Fantastic Four #607: Oh Hickman you glorious bastard! You've made Wakanda and T'Challa extremely bad ass! Finally we get to see Ororo and T'Challa as husband and wife for a few panels. Seems they're always apart. We get a history of Wakanda. This issue felt almost like a Stargate episode. Might as well call Vibriunium, Naqadah! I can't wait for 608 next month. This issue was beautifully drawn as well.

According to this "Hulk" isn't cancelled. Something might be up with it, but not cancellation.

Be curious to see then.
I hope it's not a relaunch, rename thing they do though. Just keep the title going.

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

I have a feeling that given the rumored/anticipated creative shuffling happening in the fall, that it'll be relaunched with a new creative team. Who knows who will star in it.

Creative Team shuffle I'm fine with. Just make the next one issue #58.

Previews for next week's Marvel releases...
Wow. Between the crossover issues, the .1 issue and twice-monthly shipping, it seems like forever since the last Daredevil, but it's only been a month.

Besides DD, I'll be getting Avengers Academy 32, AvX 6, Journey into Mystery 640, New Avengers 27, New Mutants 44, Secret Avengers 28, Uncanny X-Men 14, and Winter Soldier 7, so it'll be a pretty big week for me.

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

This past week was huge for me, so this week only a couple of books:

-Avenging Spider-Man #8 (Ends of the Earth Epilogue)
-Avengers Vs X-Men #6 (Please finally be good. Hickman is writing this issue i think)
-Uncanny X-Men #14

Rich speculates who could join Bendis on Uncanny and X-Men...if indeed that is happening...

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

I know I'm likely, okay probably am, the only one who cares but big development for Man-Thing in this weeks Dark Avengers #176(old TBolts title).

For those who don't know Man-Thing is an emphatic being. Reads you like a dog or cat would based on emotions, body posture etc. He then developed limited telepathic abilities through his time controlling the Nexus of All Realities.
He was captured, placed in a glorified aquarium by Norman Osborne and used by the Thunderbolts for transportation and muscle. Man-Thing got vaporized, it seems, but you can't kill him as Satana noted. However, due to the severity he was going to have to be reborn vs just reassemble such as when a bullet, sword etc goes through him.

He's been reborn at the dawn of time on Earth. He's actually the reason the TBolts began time tripping backward. He had to access the earliest elements on Earth to be reborn. I want the original art for that page by the way. It also seems he
More answers are forthcoming as he was tired from his rebirth and went off to rest. All this for Man-Thing only covers about 4-5 pages in the book by the way.

I'm liking what I've seen with Man-Thing's inclusion with TBolts since issue #150 and wondering what the greater road map is for him. His Omnibus hits in a few months. The lost Gene Colon story as well. Could a mini or ongoing happen?!

Anyway I typed all that for information purposes. I read posts of titles I'm not reading to stay informed. Assume others might be curious about my boy!!


Looking forward to reading Avenging Spiderman #8 and Punisher #12 tonight!!

Also, could a mod just change this thread title to something like : Ongoing Marvel Comics monthly book thread
Something, I think Admiral Young has even asked before. The Heroic Age "theme" was so long ago now it seems.

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

Actually it was TurtleTrekker that requested a name change. Plus quite frankly I don't even know why they called it "Heroic Age" in the first place LOL.

Avenging Spider-Man #8: Very good issue, but it is an epilogue to Dan Slott's Ends of the Earth and deals with Spider-Man's memories of a certain characters "passing". The ending implies that character could still be alive though. Very good issue. Loved the flash back tale that Peter told Steve. Always have been a fan of his banter with Doc Strange! The art was weird in this issue though.

Uncanny X-Men #14: I think this might be my favorite issue of the series so far! Sinister World! Sinister prepares to face off against Phoenix Scott!

When Dark Reign / Siege ended, all the Marvel comics were under a new banner called "The Heroic Age", because Osborn was finally out of power and the heroes were back in charge.

^ I was being sarcastic. It was hardly a "heroic age" at all.

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

The cover to Daredevil 14 was a little misleading as Doom himself didn't actually appear in the issue. Matt's desperate and futile attempt to escape Latveria without his enhanced senses was a good read nonetheless. Foggy's sub-plot, looking into his belief that Matt isn't as well-adjusted as Matt would like to think promises to be interesting.

New Mutants 44 featured the welcome return of Cannonball and Karma (albeit as guest-stars) as well as a guest shot from the Defenders. I've always liked the original New Mutants, but when Sam and X'ian left, there were only two original members left were Dani and Bobby, so I dropped the book. I picked up the crossover with JiM , and decided to keep reading for the return of more original members. One thing that irks me though, is that in almost 50 issues, is that we have yet to have so much as a cameo from original member Wolfsbane. As much as I like PAD's take on Rahne, so long as there is a book called "New Mutants" on the shelves, she should have at least a small place in it.

Winter Soldier 7 continues the story of the last of the sleeper agents that Bucky trained in his old Winter Soldier days. I hope thay keep Leo around after this story wraps, as he would make a great arch-foe for Bucky.

Journey into Mystery 640 continues the "Manchester Gods" arc. I like the fact that Damon Hellstorm guested again as I think that he and Loki and Leah actually make a pretty good team. Loki's realization that he (and therefore Asgardia) are supporting the wrong side of the conflict was an interesting twist.

Is Black Widow a regular cast member of Winter Soldier? I thought she was just going to be in the first handful of issues.

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

It's possible Brubaker decided to keep Tasha as a permanent cast member. I love Winter Solider, it works because of Bucky and Tasha's relationship IMO. I think I would possibly drop it if she ever left. She does deserve her own ongoing though.
