Recently, alot of people, including me and my friends have been pretty let down by Marvel. We feel like the stories are just getting terrible, and that some of the writers just haven't quite got what they used to have. In my case, this is about AvX and Thunderbolts.
Firstly. Avengers vs X-men started off okay, but it seemed like a stupid plot about Mr. Summers having a hissy fit. I stopped reading after two issues, but now, Phoenix Five? Seriously? It seems like they ran out of events and just thought they'd make them all fight each other for the hell of it. I've also always felt that you're just pushed to like characters like Hope.
Secondly, I love the Thunderbolts, don't get me wrong, but Jeff Parker doesn't seem to know much about the characters at all. There's too many characters and not enough focus, to be honest.
Anyway, I'd be really interested to know what everyone's views on this topic are. Do you feel as though Marvel is heading to a disaster, or do you like the direction they're going in?
Also, I apologise if there's a thread like this already made. :/
