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

I made it my wall paper so I could study it...so far "Captain America Reborn", "Siege", Fantastic Four "Three" is there, Nine World Disapear is interesting, Man Without Fear, "Five Lights" (seems like a homage to the TNG episode lol), Ultron War, The Return of the King?, Galactus Seed. There are other things on there that I can't really look at. Weird no Spider-Man stuff...

I thought the Ultron War was the future thing going on in the Avengers comic, Ultron vs Maestro and the Kid Avengers.

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

You're correct...I'm stupid tonight it would seem...the chart even has a "You Are Here" asterisk! LOL. Marvel announces the return of the Illuminati with Medusa replacing Black Bolt in "Avengers #8" which shows Reed still so at least he's still alive.

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

Well "Secret Avengers" was pretty boring for the first time. As predicted the Nick Fury we've been seeing in a Hydra uniform isn't Nick but some sort of advanced Life Model Decoy named Max who is a rouge. The issue ended with Steve pissed at Nick and the Shadow Council putting their next stage in of their plan into motion.

"Avengers" has kind of been disappointing...the only thing fun was the panel with the timeline on it. I'm starting to think we're not going to get any explanation or real interaction with the Young Avenger kids at all.

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

"Avengers" is my favorite. Big crazy action, JRJR art, a million heroes and baddies. And with #5 it's finally becoming a coherent story instead of endless weird shit.

Actually "New Avengers" is doing the exact same thing. All tons of crazy unexplained chaos for several issues before any kind of explanation is offered. I do enjoy it though, and the art is good.

Of the Heroic Age books I'd rank them...
Avengers > New Avengers > Thunderbolts ........ > Secret Avengers > Avengers Academy

I dunno if Secret Warriors counts towards this but I really stopped caring about this book. When it started I thought it was amazing, but this recent story about old men getting killed by no-name Hydras is just boring me to tears, and it's being told in a very confusing fashion. I miss the super powered kids.

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

The only thing that I've been enjoying in "Avengers" has been Peter's banter with Jessica. Have no idea if Bendis is teasing some kind of future romance between them (most likely not) but I have really enjoyed their relationship in this book. I will agree that Johnny Jr's art has been fantastic. The team dynamic has been interesting as well. I wonder though when "Wolverine in Hell" is supposed to take place during this escape as well as the war against the vampires. I haven't seen the vampire war appear on Tony's timeline.

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

Something tells me the big Avengers book is not going to be greatly concerned with what's going on in the X-Books. The vampire war is just a little six issue arc, it's not that important in the long run.

I think the bigger question is when does the New Avengers magic crisis take place in relation to the Avengers time crisis, since Manhatten is brutally attacked in both and Wolverine is in both

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

This thread hasn't been updated in a while. I'm close to dropping "Secret Avengers". The second arc has bored me somewhat, although this past week's issue was interesting. "Avengers" is okay. Infinity Gems arc is fairly intriguing and I guess of note was the confrontation between the Illuminati and the rest of the Avenger teams due to the fact that two of the Gems were stolen and were in the possession of Tony Stark and Reed Richards. Steve is pissed at Tony again. Just started getting into "New Avengers" again and this looks like the funnest book of the three main Avenger titles.

I loved that show down... The real inner asshole within Stark shone (shined?) through.

He still doesn't understand that what he did is wrong.

I so want to see him nailed by a senate hearing, or more accurately I want to see him outwit a senate hearing and make them cry momma.

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

"The Trial of Tony Stark" would make for an interesting ongoing arc in either Invisible Iron Man or Avengers. Seeing as how Norman seems like he's going to eventually escape from the Maximum Security facility he's currently in without being punished for his war crimes it would seem kind of fitting if Tony ends up being punished somehow.

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

1. The Avengers. huge cosmic stories with JRJR art, I love it.
2. Avengers Children's Crusade. I really love Jim Cheung's art! And it's a story we've been waiting years to see.
3. New Avengers. good art, good stories.
4. Thunderbolts. I really love the artist on this book and the villain interactions are cool.
5. Secret Warriors. I really loved the early arcs on this book along with the Caselli art but the second half of the run has been very disappointing. I particularly didn't care for the long arc where the super powered kids disappeared and it became about the Howling Commandos.
6. Secret Avengers. meh.
7. Avengers Prime. That was disappointing. So much for seeing any kind of true in depth reconciliation between Iron Man and Cap.
8. Avengers Academy. super meh.

I liked the last issue of Secert Avengers but I agree, it's definitely slowing down. It's not even a team comic anymore. Just Steve and maybe one or two others.

It doesn't help either that like the Avengers main title, Secert Avengers feels as if it is stretching story arc longer just for the sake of doing it.

You still can't get me to read the Avengers. I still think it's a pile of crap.

I do have to admit I love Avengers Academy though. Thunderbolts as well.

Avengers has felt very disjointed from the start of it's relaunch. The future plot felt confusing and bungled.

Every issue of Avengers feels as if several pages are missing. No real feel to any of the Avengers books right now. I get em, I read em, they go in the box. They need to eliminate 2 of the titles, get back to the core team and move on with some good stories.
