I know many people do not appreciate all the events that are coming out these days by Marvel, and I agree that there are way too many of them being published right after each other. However, I am here to argue the value of events, or at least the value of reading them and enjoying of them.
Almost every event is teased as "the next big thing," or something will change so that "nothing will ever be the same again!" Almost every time, the status quo is changed back to normal by the next event. This is a huge cause of frustration to many, and I can understand why. However, I would say this. When you look at an event as only something that changes the status quo or has big effects on everything, youre expectation will be dashed because it is an evolving industry where everyone wants to tell their own story and not stick with one particular precedent set forth by an event. This is not a perfect world. Most of the time we will not have huge story threads continued through years and years.So my point is this: We need to appreciate the events(the good ones anyway) for the stories they tell, not the ultimate impact they have or the repercussions. Many good stories are missed out on because they dont have a huge affect on that universe or it is negated shortly thereafter. But I'm saying, enjoy the stories anyway, dont get too concerned with the ultimate changes they make to a universe. That is all.
