    Most of these characters seem to have something working against them that prevents synergy. With Wanda it was the fact that her movie rights are...

    It wouldn't be logical if I were an editor. I'm not. As a reader, like all readers, I prefer books I like to books I don't. Marvel's bottom line...

    Even assuming that's true, what does it matter to me? I don't work for Marvel, so I can only care about whether something is a good artistic choice. ...

    It's true that just because a character is on the Avengers doesn't mean the Avengers will make them more famous. And for some readers, going all the...

    Well, Ahmed's a good writer and he's got to be able to improve on Pietro's '90s series. That announcement also shows they're continuing one of the...

    I would note again that since most of these characters have their own books, they're already getting the spotlight, so this is kind of a double-dip....

    The Busiek Avengers run was what finally got me into Marvel comics after not being interested in them, so I can't be completely objective about it...

    The thing about Bendis's run is that even though he pitched the idea of making the Avengers more like the Justice League, the actual books he wrote...

    I've grumbled enough so I will say one thing in favor of the idea of having only one major Avengers book: I think it is essential, at least for a...

    Yes, many people do prefer the Avengers to have a lot of star characters. That's fine, no better or worse than the kind of Avengers book I prefer....

    It is kind of frustrating that absolutely nothing seems to have the power to get Wanda back on the main Avengers team. She's been back in the comics...
