    Part of the initial Alpha Flight team that investigated an impact site. Turned out that the site was an evolution engine. This means that the army of Shang Chi replicants have the potential be...

    You really should listen to this. The Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning Cosmic run is one of the best things I've ever read. Ok, that may be a slight hyperbole, but it is mostly true. Start at...

    Ed Brubaker's Captain America run is during the New Avengers run. Matt Fraction's Iron Man run starts during Secret Invasion. JMS's Thor run starts right after Civil War. All three runs are really...

    Illuminati issue 5 is a Secret Invasion prologue. Spiderman takes off his mask in Civil War, but it's reconned using magic later. It's a big mess and later on you'll see Spiderman have to...

    Two questions that came up for me recently:

    1. I'm about to sit down and reread your Avengers run. Other than Avengers Forever and Maximum Security, are there any other tie-in's with the main...

    Yes, that is true. Though you can really and honestly read Illuminati 1-5 at any point as long as it is PRIOR to Secret Invasion as most of the stuff it deals with is fairly old continuity.

    Wait, there are people who don't like the The Hood as the crown prince of crime?

    I actually liked that a lot as it was playing into what everyone, everyone, was saying during Civil War both in and...

    It's possible that will factor in too. Bendis makes a reference in the opening arc of New Avengers Vol 2 about how outside our reality wait terrible things trying to get in... and now the barriers...

    HAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    In all seriousness, I'm hoping the Great Destroyer is something far more mundane. It's been established that the Multiverse is a fairly fragile construct (see the Age of Apocalypse...

    I'm thinking he will return, as Hickman's Avengers run is wrapping up why the truly powerful reality distorting heroes can't save us this time. We've seen Franklin in the Original Sin arc. Molecule...

    Glad they mentioned Hickman's FF run. Everything after the "Forever" arc was set up for his Avengers run and there are enough clues prior to "Forever" to make you wonder if this started as a...

    No Thanos or Galactus, sorry. Up to Civil War the team is Cap, Iron Man, Wolverine, Spiderman, Luke Cage, Spiderwoman, Sentry (off and on). Thor isn't around at all in the 616 as he disappeared...

    Bendis's run has three acts:
    1. Build up to Secret Invasion
    2. Dark Reign and build up to Siege
    3. Build up to Age of Ultron.

    That 3rd part is the weakness there. You get the sense that...

    Hickman's run has been pretty good, but I'm loathe to rank it until it's totally finished.

    Bendis gets hammered a lot on comic book forums but he was commercially very successful. I think his...

    I've always read those as direct sequels/follow ups of each other. We see Kang really take back his own destiny and freedom in Avengers Forever, and then really go all out in Kang Dynasty. I'd love...

    For me, it's "The Nearness of You." I can't talk about that issue without tearing up. Stupid comic. (That's a compliment by the way. It's powerful stuff).
