    I just reread Avengers #7 to double check. Yep, the narrative strongly implies that the protocol to select a Starbrand wasn't followed. Issue #7 doesn't specifically say it should not have been him...

    I've read it a few times. I don't think the implication is that Kevin wasn't supposed to be Starbrand, just that he wasn't supposed to be doing this alone. There was a whole system that was...

    He wants to go after the Cabal too, and it even sounded like he tried. However, they have the equivalent of diplomatic immunity. He can't go after them for the same reason Steve doesn't just raise...

    Me too. I'm fairly certain the Swans are part of a Council of Valeria Richards. It was hinted she was forming her own version of the council at the end of Hickman's FF run.

    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).

    My question though:

    I loved "The...

    I'd started that thread, and I have an idea on that. I think that Black Swan's was her universe's Valeria Richards analog and her brother was the universe's Franklin Richard's analog. I think she...

    I'd suspected for a while that the Great Destroyer wouldn't be the primary focus. I'd thought he may not even exist, though this issue seems to prove me wrong. The problem is the Incursions and...

    Thanks. That was a really odd lawsuit anyways. Didn't expect it would hold up to scrutiny.



    I don't want to argue the point. We'll see fairly soon I'd imagine if Kirby starts getting creator...

    Has the lawsuits around Sherlock Holmes been settled at this point yet, as that would have a huge impact on whether guys like Cap and Namor would have got to public domain. It's been a while since I...

    I'm watching closely too. I'd be interested in hearing what folks that loved the DnA run thought.

    I understand why the Hickman Avengers books are going to ship "aggressively" now. I totally agree that it appears we are seeing splinters of teams and factions here.

    I have to go back and reread...

    The sale is a bundle of FF and Fantastic Four. I was a fan of Defenders by Fraction but your comments here really mirror the other reviews I went to see on Amazon. Think I'll pass.
  14. Fraction's Fantastic Four Run on Sale: Is it worth it?

    Hello all,

    Matt Fraction's complete Fantastic Four and FF run is on sale today over on comixology. I have to confess, I've never read it and I'm debating if the whole thing is worth a $30 one...

    That was one of the things that rang false about this to me. It really feels like a "Dark Reign" kind of situation. I'm curious to see how AXIS sets the stage for this. That's a big deal for me as...

    AIM was hit pretty hard in Avenger's World 12 (iirc). We still could see them hit again in AW 14.

    AIM would be a heck of a poison pill for a company to buy. Stark has had problems with bad acquisitions endangering his company as a whole. He's likely to not want to take on that risk.

    As far...

    Also, there are a lot of smart folks in this thread!

    Hyperion: he's been mentioned a lot in this thread. It got me thinking that maybe there's a detail I'd missed back in Avengers 4 where we see...

    They mention it can't be used as a sacrifice play. I doubt that's the only possible use.

    For my part, I don't consider the Destroyer of the cause to be that important for where this is going as a story. As for cause there's a long list of potential candidates. Hyperion, the Galactus...

    I see Cap's side as being analogous to being on the space shuttle and finding the shuttle is leaking atmosphere. Do you airlock a person to buy the rest time to come up with a solution or do you...

    I don't think that's the theme right now. If anything that's the opposite of what I think we are supposed to see. I think the message is simple: "Everything Dies." In the end the person we choose...

    ...and I'd add that Avengers World is clearly picking up plot threads from the Pre-Infinity era like Starbrand's adjustment to being a hero, AIM Island, and some Shang Chi stuff.

    None if it...

    I could see the cause of the incursions being in Exiles, or Fantastic Four, or the Thanos Imperative, etc. What I'm expecting though is that for the story the cause is almost irrelevant. The real...

    In defense of Hickman, at least he expended effort to undo things. His ending run of Fantastic Four reads as continuity massaging to get to where he needs to be for his Avengers run. Bendis's...
