The Avengers working....... A Lot

Posted by saoakden (1011 posts) - - Show Bio

Has anyone notice that within the past decade or so, The Avengers have gone through a lot of stuff? First the team assembles to fight off evil as a team, which was cool. They then expand their roster by adding a wide range of heroes and some reformed villains. After they fight some number of villains, they begin to be involved in many storylines from Secret War, Onslaught, the Avengerrs breaking up, reforming as New Avengers after a prision break, the Marvel Superhero Civil War, Multiple Avengers, (Mighty, New, Dark, Avengers Intitaive) Secret Invasion, Dark Regin (Introducing Osborn's Dark Avengers), Utopia, Siege (Ending Osborn's Regin), Heroic Age, (which ended up having The Main, New, Secret, And an Academy for Avengers) Fear Itself, Shattered Heroes, and now recently X-Sanction, fighting Osborn again with the HAMMER Wars, and in the Spring, the aftermath of X-Sanction will lead up to Avengers vs X-Men, which will involve possibly all Avengers and a lot of Mutants.

Basically, the have been very busy fighting various enemies. They have gone through a lot of hardship from these various battles. They have lost some members weather they quit, went rogue and blaming them for stuff (I'm looking at you Wonder Man and your Revengers), or they have been KIA.

To me, I haven't been reading up on all the Avengers comics since money is kinda tight and I usually wait for the trade to come out and I usually get the jist of whats going on through here, but I think someone give them a break. Since Marvel is kinda getting the reputation of releasing a lot of Marvel Events. I think Spider-Man or Deadpool would have cracked a joke about this by now.

Its freacking crazy. DC is so much better with this. DC events are actually readable and even more: ENJOYABLE. Of course, excluding Flashpoint, which I haven't read, but that was just to get the DCnU started.

Yeah, I don't think it was a great example.

Definitely not. Marvel's events do connect with each other, for the most part, but generally speaking, many of them are completely unnecessary.

Most of them are simply executed poorly. Just the mere idea behind Civil War, Secret Invasion, Dark Reign, and Fear Itself even are truly intriguing in theory.

I mean, I just don't get why people keep comparing Fear Itself to Blackest Night. They're nothing alike, I tell you!

Duuuuuuuuuude. Unfair. Stop that sh*t, its not funny. Why did you use the best tie-in, huh? You could easily have used the worst one and it would've trumped everything from BN.

That's because DC doesn't do one after another in rapid succession like that.If DC didn't have time to meditate on their events they would be garbage too. Marvel doesn't care.Their mentality is.."we made you like these heroes and they are in this event, NOW READ IT!" And it works every time.

I'm not sure what point your trying to prove, its obvious that DC events don't suck because they have time to think them out and make good stories out of them, that's what makes their events better than them, they care. That's why DC Events > Marvel Events.

I'm not sure I understand. The Avengers frequently battle threats and also expand their roster? I notice this yes but that's sort of the point isn't it?

- I have more of an issue of how they for the past decade seem to always be so unprepared for the new events. Considering they have access to the highest technology and government clearances they seem to be caught completely unaware way too often.

- I'm not saying they should catch every single threat proactively, but their track record has went way, way downhill. They seem to wander into every event pretty much clueless and freaking out on what to do rather than have enough of a handle on things to respond properly.

- The group overall is so disorganized, with rosters that make no sense, it makes Cap and Stark look like idiots. They are supposed to be the elite team of the entire planet, please write them as such, is that so much to ask?

Well Civil War & Dark Reign connect but to go from Superhuman Registration Act to Osborn wanting to take over Asgard, Big jump

There was a Secret Invasion between those events, which if you read makes the jump seem much less random.
