squares's New Avengers #25 - Dragon vs Phoenix review

Useless and unecessary

After reading this comic I can't shake the feeling that I just completely wasted my time and money doing so.

Maybe I'm out of touch, but since when does anyone give a crap about Iron Fist? I certainly don't know anyone who does. Hell, most people don't know who the hell he is, and I really wish I could be one of those people.

Pointless story plus horrible art? Total fail, no stars.

@Squares: Huzzah! I thought the story was pretty good, and I know nothing about the Iron Fist mythology. I viewed the story as mythos building to broaden out the overall AvX back-story and integrate the PF further into the rest of the MU. Sure they could have done this as a one-shot or mini series, but that would have been extra bucks to shell out. Given the amount of Avengers action going on elswhere I'm happy enough if this story takes place in the New Avengers title and saves me cash into the bargain. Still, I can see where you're coming from and that this approach won't be to everyones taste.

    AF Reviews: AvengersThe one-line solicitation reads "Iron Fist discovers the shocking connection between himself and the cosmic Phoenix Force". What's fun is that one thing doesn't even happen. Iron Fist isn't in the issue at all and he certainly doesn't discover anything. Instead we as readers discover the "shocking" connection between himself and the cosmic Phoenix Force. Or that's to say we discover it across several double page splashes and in one instance an EXACT copy of the same splash pa...
