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

Now this is interesting...new character in All New X-Men, and more interestingly...seems Ororo has joined the School.

Wade's reasons made me laugh, especially reason number six LOL. I'm really looking forward to Uncanny Avengers.

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

Finished Captain Marvel #2...a little bit of a drop off from the first issue (possibly only because Spider-Man is missing from the book but otherwise this was interesting. We get an answer why there is World War II iconography being used in this issue as well. Looks like Carol is finally accepting her new role and name. I'm assuming that this takes place some time after the events of Avengers Vs X-Men, since Carol is not wearing her new costume in that book or any of it's tie-ins I believe. It's too self contained though to really tell. I'll be continuing with this book. McCormick writes a great Carol. The art takes a bit getting used to...but it's not bad.

I find there to be something off with Captain Marvel. Like its a rejected and repurposed Wonder Woman pitch.

X-Force is relaunching.

Loeb and McGuinness on "Nova" it would seem...

I dunno I was almost thinking more female Green Lantern with the whole space alien origins and such. Y'know I never really put two and two together, but Carol Danvers is basically a female Hal Jordan - but a female Hal Jordan that actually did something with his flying skills besides become a test pilot.

I'm still in love with Carol "Captain Ms. Marvel" Danvers and you can't change that

Although what I am worried about with the inclusion of Rogue - are they going to trot out that hoary old saw about "Oh woe is me, Rogue was such a bitch when she was a KID and took my powers and memories... yadda yadda." because the way things are now - she's got memories and feelings about pretty nearly everything she remembers, so let it go. It's almost as bad as Tony going to AA meetings every few issues. I mean my GOSH, he had ONE FRICKIN' BOTTLE of booze in front of Odin and a few pints of Ale in Asgard and suddenly he's like "omigosh I'm such a bad alcoholic."

I hate AA's "I'm Tony and I'm an alcoholic." like... no Tony you aren't. You're a "former alcoholic." you grew up. You learned new substitutions for the booze. You learn moderation. Fuck, if you can create an arc reactor out of nothing, you can beat booze.

Looks like Matt Fraction's grand finale is going to be Armour Wars III.

^I cant wait for this horrific arc to end. Quite possibly the worst Iron Man story(and I have them all) since they turned him into a teenager.

It's that bad eh? Well...as I've said before I haven't bothered with Fraction's Iron Man since the end of Secret Invasion. Probably a little prior to that actually.

Didn't Fractions run start out good though? I thought I remembered people really liking some of the stuff around that came out around the time of the movies.

It was awesome for a long time...then it wasn't. Shinzon is correct...it was around the brain boot that it started to suck and I lost interest.

If Remender's gone from X-Force, I'm done reading it.

Although if Remender is going to inject his politics into Uncanny Avengers, I can't say I'm too thrilled about that either.
