According to Dennis Hopeless, Avengers Arena is meant to be an ongoing series, as he had stated in this interview he gave
To be honest, I really don't see it, unless as I stated in my other topic, that this isn't real and that when all but one of the characters die, Arcade simply resets the virtual world and it starts all over again, or he simply kidnaps another bunch of young heroes and start the process over with them.
I ask this, because Arcade says that this will last 30 days, when he said that and hearing it was to be an ongoing series, what came to me was it would be like 24 with Jack Bauer, except instead of it being 24 hours it would be 30 days 30 issues, with each issue following the characters throughout each day.
what we get is
Granted, only 30 secs has passed, but as it's only the second issue, I kind of expected it
Avengers Arena #4 - The Survivor No day specified - Cover =
Avengers Arena #5 - Born Leader No day specified - Cover =
Avengers Arena #8 - Game On Part 1 of 5 No day specified - Cover = Unknown
Avengers Arena #11 - Game On Part 4 of 5 - Day 25 - Cover =
Avengers Arena #13 - The Devil's Greatest Trick - Takes place outside Murderworld
Avengers Arena #15 - Boss Level Part 2: THE UK LOVE TRIANGLE EXPLODES! - Deaths: Nara killed by Cullen Bloodstone in his monster form.
Avengers Arena #16 - Boss Level Part 3: THE FINAL BATTLES BEGIN! - Day 29 - Christopher Powell alive - We also come to where the preview in issue 1 left us, the confrontation between Hazmat & X-23.
Avengers Arena #18 - Boss Level Part 5: THE SEARING SERIES FINALE! (FINAL ISSUE) - Day 29/30 - Deaths: Reptil saving everyone from Hazmat exploding / Apex killed by Death Locket to stop her from killing everybody.
DEATHS (IN ORDER)
On top of that we also have what happened in Avengers Arena #3, where Cammi, while being interrogated, was kidnapped in full view of Abigail Brand, who is the leader of S.W.O.R.D, who are the equivalent of S.H.I.E.L.D. How long do you think it would take them to find her and the others using all the technology at their disposal and what if they get S.H.I.E.L.D involved in the search. To me that just adds another time limit to this series, because S.W.O.R.D won't stop until they find her and indirectly the others
My question to you is
Do you believe that Avengers Arena can sustain itself to last 12, 18, 24 issues as Dennis Hopeless stated, considering everything I mentioned.
