    I Love Ultimate Power

    But quite frankly I'm turned off by the new MU setting of the initiative.. it's soooo unrealistic and set in a Marvel context of "realism"

    I really can't judge World War Hulk since I haven't read it.. I loved Civil War (though hate it's effects)

    I wish Marvel would go back to the days where it feels like a "comic book" again instead of trying to be either a movie or a TV series.

    Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness - Nice crossover story now that it's over and the ending was hysterical! :rofl:

    New Avengers / Transformers - Fun. I liked how Spider-Man was written in thiis book, he was pretty funny.

    Uncanny X-Men - Interesting. Spoiler for the Endangered Species part -
    So most of the baddies have turned down Beast's request for help, but Spiral said she'd look into it. When in doubt, go with an MVC2 character ha ha! Beast is seeking out the High Evolutionary's help in the meantime.

    Ms. Marvel - And straight into spoilers.
    So Modok got a kid? Guess it had to be before he turned into a big head because if they did it during it would be too freaky... AIM just turned his kid into a bad villain who's part robot too... in the story when Ms. Marvel's powers went all crazy she started turning all blue and the Kree started speaking through her like 'Uh oh we gotta patch her up.' Bizarre. But Ms. Marvel turning all Kree since that's where her powers come from... maybe the Kree will use her during this whole Marvel Universe Skrull invasion? And the plot thickens.

    C'mon, man... I don't know what Marvel books you are reading, but how can you make such blanket statements hankering for the "good old days." Ahh, Rugal, we sure missed ya. For what it's worth, I still think the Marvel Universe is more interesting than most any movie or TV series.

    So, I read New Avengers 32...
    Do you guys think this could be one giant Skull plot? What Logan and Jessica was saying made sense, and if you think about it the oppotunity was way too convienent.

    Shield pissing you off? Throw the chain of command into disarray by getting rid of Nick Fury.

    Don't know who all the super heroes are? Register and keep tabs on them.

    The Hulk is too unpredicitable to handle and impossible to defeat? Send his ass somewhere else.

    I don't think they had shit to do with Wanda(how would they control it??) and I don't think Tony Stark is a Skrull either. The Sentry would be much more likely.

    Regardless, Wolvie is gonna be pissed when he wakes up.


    And about NA 31...

    How can the baby be a Skrull?! Bendis must be messing with us.

    Wasn't the baby conceived back in Alias #1? Cage was still in his "yellow shirt and tiara" phase back in the early days of the MAX line and he was wearing the yellow shirt before he and Jessica slept together. But then Azzarello & Corben came out and did the Cage MAX mini. The Cage MAX story basically ignored the yellow shirt and tiara and just busted out the hip-hop Luke Cage. And then in his next appearances in Alias and Daredevil, Cage was always sporting the hip-hop style.

    Considering that the Cage MAX story was told from his point of view, it would be pretty crappy if Cage turned out to be a Skrull when he and Jessica made the baby.

    It would be even crappier if Jessica were a Skrull for the same reason- Alias and Pulse were pretty much told from her point of view. Unless she actually doesn't know she's a Skrull. Remember that old-school story about Reed Richards brainwashing a team of Skrull soldiers into thinking they were normal Earth cows? Don't tell me Jessica has implanted memories and is a sleeper agent or something.

    Dammit. Now I need to go out and buy Skrull Kill Krew.
    I just finished reading Alias and Pulse recently, and I think Hydra has something to do with this and that Jessica isn't a Skrull. Remember when Hydra took Jessica away when she collapsed in front of that building? I think they did something to that baby when she was unconscious(don't know what for though). And I can see Hydra making some deal with the Skrulls to help them take over shit(either that or having them taking over Hydra entirely).

    I might be talking out of my ass, but something is strange here.

    EDIT: Did Elektra have a run in with Hydra recently?
    Being the only person to follow the rules, and then getting mocked relentlessly by my peers for it... that's the kind of shit that creates supervillans.

    To be honest i hope people don't go overboard thinking that spiderwoman is a skrull.
    Personally this is just a hunch but i have a theory that somehow the skrulls have developed a way to hypnotize people to work for them. I mean in the previous issue, Echo was working for Skrull Electra before Strange worked his magic and knocked Echo out of whatever spell she was under.
    Hell i just read this months Wizard and those idiots actually think Tony Stark is a skrull and if thats somehow true i'll STOP reading comics.

    Yeah, Elektra encountered the hand in the Enemy of the State storyline. It would have been the perfect time for the "real" Elektra to be replaced by the Skrull imposter. The Hand and Hydra teamed up to kill, resurrect, and brainwash a multitude of metahumans, and they even got Elektra. Supposedly, she claimed to have shaken off/resisted the brainwashing during the story, and she helped Wolverine fight the enemy.

    Annihilation Wraith - Space Western cool!

    Deadpool GLI Special - So I learned that Squirrel Girl is GOD TIER BROKEN and Deadpool likes fat girls. Too funny! :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

    New Avengers - And the plot thickens... Dun Dun DUUUUUN!

    WWH Gamma Corps - Thought it was gonna be better than it was... I hope next ish there's some beatdowns...

    Nova - Oh snap twist ending...
    They bought out that female Nova Marvel teased before in an image... right now I'm not sure if the male Nova is dead or not oooh...

    Spidey Loves MJ - Gonna miss McKeever... He said his goodbyes in this book and somehow still got to plug his Teen Titans book ha ha! I'm excited about Terry Moore taking over the book though. Still curious as to who is gonna be the new artist.

    Oh, the latest cartoon of Cartoon Network's Fantastic Four had an episode called "Annihilation" of all things that aired Saturday. :looney: Annihilus was in it only he was all pink... :confused: Well, they were doing a whole everything in the Negative Zone is all shaded in red ordeal, I guess like a room where you develop negatives for film? :rofl: Wasn't a bad episode though overall for what it's worth. :tup:

    Lately I'm into:

    Power Pack - What makes these books shine is the art from Japanese illustration team Gurihiru. It's just cute, borrowing as much from traditional anime stylings as much as it does from classic American cartoons. The stories are utterly ridiculous even for Marvel standards (Spider-Shota and Venom Katie for example), but the whacked out Saturday morning cartoon feel of each of the minis is pulled together by the art.

    Spider-Man <3 Mary Jane - I never really dug Miyazawa's work for Marvel. I just felt he never really had a place where his art was appropriate. Ironically enough (or not), Miyazawa's art would find no better home than with Sean McKeever's Mary Jane books. McKeever's a formidable writer - Peter Parker's supporting high school cast are fleshed out, their world expressed through a believably adolescent voice. McKeever's strength is that he knows teenagers. His characters are intelligent and articulate, but inexperienced and naive. Mary Jane and Spider-Man convey emotions subtly, while Liz Allen and Harry Osborn often speak with negligently blunt dialogue. Couple the excellent scripts with Miyazawa's anime-inspired, appropriately charming artwork, and you have the most charming book Marvel has put out in ages.

    X-Factor - What more needs to be said of PAD's book? X-Factor is like Scrubs meets the X-Men. X-Factor is intriguing, with private sleuth and one-man army Jamie Madrox and his team of mutant misfits taking on odd mutant related cases. It's also fucking hillarious, X-Factor being scripted and drawn in a way in which its panels have excellent comedic timing, not unlike a good sitcom (again, see: Scrubs). For example: Jamie wakes up with a pounding headache, barely remembering that he was drunk the night before. He passes Monet in the hallway, who smiles at him, realizing that they had a one night stand. Before he has time to regret it, he runs into Theresa, who is also smiling at him. The realization slowly dawns on Jamie that his clones slept with the women behind their backs. As soon as he's about to walk up the stairs, he notices Layla Miller smiling at him. Jamie's face is awash with horror at the implications this has regarding the pre-teen girl, but she reassures him that nothing happened last night, opting instead to save herself for her wedding night.

    Barracuda - A complete 180 degree turn from Power Pack comes Barracuda, who is as hillariously ugly and disfigured as Katie Power is moe. Barracuda is Garth Ennis just letting lose for four all-too-short issues, killing off a disproportionate amount of generic mercenaries, mafiosos, federal agents and revolutionaries. Whereas X-Factor was intelligently crafted irony, Barracuda is an all out farce with dick jokes. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

    Superhero team books I follow but may or may not like according to the brief reasons following:

    Avengers: The Initiative - Interesting book, good artwork. Series takes a copmletely unexpected turn at the end of the first issue, and I hope Dan Slott can deliver some more unexpected twists in crafting what may be a unique story. Sort of like a cross between New X-Men and Boot Camp.

    New Avengers - Love the moody artwork the book just received, and I love the roster. Just dropped one of the biggest Marvel Universe bombshells of recent history.

    Runaways - Just brilliant. The best young superhero team book in the industry. The characters are fully realized, the artwork's been gorgeous, and the book has a smart sense of humor. It was an excellent run by the always wonderful Brian K Vaughn (Y: The Last Man and Pride of Baghdad deserve to be read) and it remains a great read under Joss Whedon.

    Mighty Avengers - Haven't been following it lately, but it's a decent enough book. What I actually like about this book is that it suffers from BENDIS SCRIPT far more than even Ultimate Spider-Man. Not only do characters talk to each other a ridiculous amount, they THINK to themselves a ridiculous amount. You will be hard pressed to find a page in this comic where a character doesn't think to him or herself at least twice.

    Thunderbolts - Hasn't really captured my imagination. A superhero team made up of unlikable villains who are also unlikable protagonists (besides Norman Osborn, he shines in this book). Other than American Dream beating the piss out of Bullseye and Norman Osborn being awesome, I have no reason to read this book.

    The Loners - I like it. Takes a bunch of obscure characters and goes to town. It even made Mattie Franklin interesting enough. Worth reading.

    someone convince my by tomorrow to pre-order the brubaker capt. america omnibus. For some reason it isnt look appealing to me right now
  • ZephyranthesZephyranthes Mad Mod Poet God Joined: Posts: 2,453 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    Ah dammit, am I too late to convince you? What happened to the Church of Bru members around here? If Giddy doesn't buy the Cap HC, I will hold Painy, deathy, ragey, and the rest of you all responsible.

    Look, the Omnibus is only 37.50 on dcbservice.com You can't really go wrong with that price, man. Not only is it Brubaker, it's one of Brubaker's great works. Right up there on the same level as Catwoman, Gotham Central, and Daredevil.

    I mean first of all, it's Captain America. You know how rare it is to find GOOD Captain America solo stories? Tell me one run on Cap that you believe stands out, and I will tell you that Bru's run is easily equal to or superior to it. Second, Bru's Cap stories are extremely well-thought out and contain a magical balance of action, character development, and plotting. Third, the art has Epting and Perkins, probably two of the top three or four artists who came back from CrossGen.

    Fourth, and most important, the Cap Omnibus will change your life for the better. This is proven scientific fact because I lost 4 pounds since I started reading Cap.

    hmm...I still don't know though. Gotham Central didn't wow me and Cap has never been one of my favorite characters or anything. The art looks really dark and muddy too

    That's because the story resembles the artwork. It's not a pretty story when it comes to this Captain America. Brubaker Cap is not your normal Cap. This isn't Cap vs. Hydra vs. Red Skull vs. Stiltman.

    It's a much more serious Cap compared to the semi-campy stuff from the 90's where Cap would fight the villain of the month. There's espionage and crazy action involved. And there is also character development to the max.

    I really can't describe it because it's one of those books that you just have to read. It's that good. Brubaker does not fail with this Captain America run. It's definitely a lot more gimmick-free compared to John Ney Reiber's run when Cap was fighting terrorism(thank you 9/11).

    When you read this book, every character connects to the next and they all fit into the story. No character is left behind in this run. I say give it a try. If you don't like, I'll even buy it off of you for the price you paid. Real talk.

    I dunno how to do the "hidden" text thing, or I would say something on the Skrull incident.

    Marvel has gotten a little better in my eyes, but it's far from being my favorite comic company. Comics I'm reading:

    New Avengers: I hate Bendis, but I can't get enough of this, great story that I hope won't be messed with when Bendis does his Avenger giant plots, but I really doubt it. Most of his revamped 70's heroes (I'm looking at you Ms. Marvel) I dislike, but he's doing Luke Cage in a great way. Iron Fist has always been a favorite of mine, and the whole team meshes well even though they are vastly different. Whoever the artist is is amazing, love his work.

    World War Hulk: Finally a Marvel mega event I'm actually reading! Amazing huh? I love the Hulk, I want to see him get what he wants, and if he rips Tony Stark's head off in the process then I'm just fine with that. I want to see Namor's part in it, since besides Cap (pre-death, unlike most of his "Fans" now.) he's always been one of my favorite heroes.

    Anything Ultimate: If this was it's own company, I would be a VERY devoted fan. The Ultimate universe is the greatest thing Marvel has going for it, and with the exception of X-Men (For the moment) I recommend all the titles. Ult. FF is my favorite, followed by Ultimates then Spidey. Ultimate Power is a great story so far, and with what Bendis said look forward to an Ultimate mega event sometime this year. I recently bought the Ult. Gah Lak Tus hardcover and want to see more of Captain Marvel, but I doubt I'll see him for a while. With Ultimates 2 (Finally!) over, I look forward to the next installment, and maybe a monthly or bi-monthly date for once. Ultimates 13 seemed like a...filler issue to me, like they threw everything together just for the sake of it.

    Iron Fist: Awesome comic, I have a feeling it'll be cancelled though...

    Sensational Spidey: Only reading this to see Eddie's return, I'm curious to see where he is going.

    WWH: X-Men special- I'm not a big X fan, but this comic is great. I might start reading New X-Men due to this, though I believe that is the one with the odd kid killing thing going with it.

    Can't think of the rest, but that's most of it anyways. Good to see Ult. Power getting some fans, anyone here read the Exiles "King Hyperion" Story arc? One of my all time fav's, check it out if you haven't.

    Lmao I got a mental picture of Warlock pimping out Pip, purple fedora and all.

    Warlock seems to be the butt of the Marvel Cosmic universe, you almost never see him, and when you do, he's either getting his ass kicked, had his ass kicked, or is about to have his ass kicked. I like him a lot, but he isn't getting any respect.

    On the topic of Cosmic, has anyone had the chance to read the new Annihilation comics? I loved the original and was wondering if these were any good. Wraith looks like he'd be an instant fan boy grabber.

    Two people instantly jump to mind when I think Skrulls: Captain America and Hawkeye/Ronin. The latter more than the former, and I'll cover ole eagle eye's first. During the...w.e it was called arc where SW went all ape crazy, Hawkeye supposedly died with no trace of his body, and just a few scant comics later he pops up, fresh and all new. Another thing that threw me off was in New Avengers #22 as Ronin he didn't act like he knew what being an Avenger meant, though this could be because of the exiled nature of this team and he's unfamliar. Onto Cap. First off Wolverine smelled the body and said it wasn't his scent, there's one hint. Second the Mighty Avengers were quick to get the New Avengers away from there, and the whole mess was soon shrouded with the Hand and crap. The only reason I can't fully say he is is because when would the Skrull have the time to take him over, and why didn't the body revert back to Steve after his "Death" so much mystery

    Problem with that theory is #1: Hawkeye got resurrected by the Scarlet Witch. He was already in a state of confusion as to how he is still alive plus Iron Man met up with him and did a full check out on him at Shield headquarters to see if he was the ACTUAL Hawkeye which turns out he was.
    #2:Cap being a Skrull has already been debunked seeing as how when he died his body shriveled up to an old man. That fake Cap body was just bait so the Mighty Avengers could take out the New Avengers.

    Hmm...kinda defeats the purpose of me using the spoiler box. Still here I go again:
    That is taking into account that Tony himself isn't a Skrull, which is a hotly debated topic right now, which if he was would cover for Hawkeye Skrull and place him as a sleeper agent of sorts within the New Avengers to monitor them.

    That is taking into account that Tony himself isn't a Skrull, which is a hotly debated topic right now, which if he was would cover for Hawkeye Skrull and place him as a sleeper agent of sorts within the New Avengers to monitor them.
    if Tony was really a skrull then that whole Civil War situation would have been bullshit from the get go. But Bendis has said many of times since this whole skrull thing has kicked off the Tony isn't a Skrull and that he wouldn't do that to the fans.
    If anything i would put money on Ms. marvel but thats a longshot though.

    Hell i'd venture to say that MAYBE Tony knew something like this may happen ever since the Illuminati's little tussle with the Skrulls after the Kree/Skrull War but thats giving Stark too much credit. But anythings possible though.

    I was telling my friends that the Illuminati members don't have to be Skrulls, but what about the politicians or even the President. What better way to soften up Earth for a full scale invasion, than to divide the heroes and make them fight one another.

    Thing is i would like to see what the skrulls got from there torturing of the Illuminati. They did too much research on those members not to have something come out of it. Then again only thing i can see was maybe them being able to bypass Dr. Strange's magic somehow.
    hmph...who know. I just pray to God that this doesn't turn into some bullshit where they retcon past storylines.

    One of the Civil War issues. Its the one where Namor was trying to get him help lead the anti-reg side. Namor says that T'Challa was like the first one asked and that he pretty much said hell no. Namor also talks about how T'Challa's grandfather kicked his ass during WW2 which was pretty funny story.

    ah ok. Funny how after he wed storm, they both eventually went to the anti-reg side anyways.

    Yeah i've always liked Black Panther only because he always had beef with Tony Stark. Ranging from planting bugs on his armor to keep tabs on him to practically doing a hostile takeover on Stark's company.

    yeah i don't think him being in the Illuminati would've worked anyways. Especially with the Hulk situation he would've probably bucked hard just like Namor and tell them it was a bad decision.

    They seem to forget hes about as smart as Reed, but he also possesess a lot more common sense. And the US wants no parts of Wakanda. And when the Hulk did show up they basically said they weren't in it.

    I don't get it. They make richard rider one of the most interesting characters in the marvel u and they kill him off. Fuck marvel
    I hope they don't fuck up starlord.
    I also read cap 1-27 of brubakers run and i read it again and again. Purely awesome.

    My problem with this bullshit is if Iron Man's solution were viable, that means they could have just put a permanent inhibitor collar on him while he was banner and never shot him into space in the first place.

    I know, and thats completely retarded. They could have also put him in cryostasis until they found a cure.

    i too am upset about iron guy's shits. imo, it should have been legit and that would've made hulk even more of a gangster. it almost nullified how pissed he got with the flashback. can i get a fuck yeah from somebody?

    Well the first look at what appears to be the lineup for Ultimates 3.

    Ultimates 3 Cover

    I am trying to worry about Loeb fucking up, but if he approaches this like his later DC work, the Ultimates are probably up shit creek. Don't even get me started on the delays that are sure to come.
    You have been weighed.
    You have been measured.
    And you have absolutely...
    Been found wanting.
    Welcome to the New World. God save you, if it is right that he should do so.

    MAANG I'm getting that just for Joe Mad's pencils. Look at his Spider-Man! Why does he rock so HORD! I'm just hoping Joe Mad can keep a monthly schedule or something that resembles it... Good news is with the 3 next gen gaming consoles going to war with each other Joe Mad might not know which system to get next and he's holding off for a bit. Oh come on you know playing Final Fantasy is the main reason for all of his delays. :lol:

    Whoa man, isn't it a bit too early for Ultimate Spider-Man to be an Avenger? He's like in High School where he will stay... um, forever in the Ultimate-verse. What are they gonna do work missions around his SATs? :rofl:

    Not that I really care since I like Spidey on Avengers but still it seems kinda funny to me and all. But yeah man, Captain America, Spider-Man, Wolverine, Iron Man and Thor on the same squad that's what I'm talking about that's the dream team right there. Sentry who? :confused:

    Loeb's writing on Marvel has been very sucky lately. Wolverine has been very very bad. Fallen Son has fallen son! Onslaught Reborn, I dunno man it's okay I try to read it really fast so I can avoid staring at Leifeld's pencils. Curse Marvel letting Liefeld touch a character that was a boss in a Capcom game - DOH! :annoy:

    There's no hope for Ultimates 3. I am pretty damn cynical, I guess, but there's just no way that this can be good. I got no faith in Loeb and no desire to buy anything he writes that isn't drawn by Tim Sale. Joe Mad only wishes he could be half as good as a poor man's Chris Bachalo. I remember when I bought Street Fighter #1 because he drew a Sagat vs. Ryu backup story... Oh, to be young and foolish again... Those were the days. I'd rather be excited for Ultimates 4 with Ed McGuiness, or as I call him, E-MAC.

    Bendis has made it a thing to increase his age every year or two, when he's 18 by law he is supposed to join the Ultimates, could be a time skip.


    I agree sorta with Zeph, Jeff Loeb has been god awful lately and I hope he doesn't fuck up the greatest comic ever. With Wolverine in it though who knows, entire issues could be devoted about him thinking about Sabretooth and socks.

    At Sano: My guess is Valkyrie and Hawkeye. Looking at this pic I don't like how some characters looks more like their 616 counterparts, like Scarlet and Iron Man. Hawkeye just looks badass.
