@chapmar: I liked the Kitty Pryde and Spider Woman. It is like it was specific for me, since they are my two favorite super heroins.

This is a joke right? I think it has been stated that Bobby doesn't control moisture, he controls atomic movement. Countless times he has brought the temperature to absolute zero, which, by definition, is when all atomic movement stops. He also has learned to spread his consciousness across whatever distance he wants, and in whatever avatar he creates. He can destroy anyone in a single thought, though he wouldn't. He is a big Teddy Bear, he would rather make out with Kitty and control massive Voltron avatars. By this personal definition, I think that Emma Frost is the most capable of being terrible. Iceman is the most powerful, but has the most conviction out of the Omega Level Mutants.
I refuse to buy this book because Marvel refused to admit that it was out of continuity when it started. Now I'm supposed to just accept that this is another Avengers family book?
So, lets go back...Avengers just came out in the movies and it was awesome. Marvel knew they needed an Avengers team comic that mimic'ed the movie version with the same 6 characters. So we get Avengers Assemble which started out as an out of continuity Avengers book created for people who were interested in reading comics but too afraid of the massive continuity. A comic created wherein if you saw the movie you could understand the comic.
So...the movie introduced Thanos at the end, the comic continues that with Thanos attacking the Avengers. With Thanos "dead" in the normal universe due to his sealing in the cancerverse with Nova Prime and Star Lord how could this comic possibly be in continuity with the rest of 616 Marvel?!
The cashing in on the movie isn't what bothers me, it's Marvel refusing to admit that Avengers Assemble is what it is. It's a comic that shouldn't be affecting the other Avengers titles because it started out in some alternate time line that didn't care about what was happening around it.
Avengers Assemble is that stinky kid in your grade school class that your group of friends all hates but manages to enter into your friends group merely by standing near them over the course of 4-6 years into high school. He's that friend that by your Junior year in high school you question,"how the hell are you in our friend group?! didn't we all hate you in grade school?!" and subsequently he's the 1st person you stop talking to when going to college...
Sorry for the rant about this but I truly see Avengers Assemble as a symbol of everything that is currently wrong with Marvel in terms of continuity. Marvel is all about wasted potential recently,and more importantly their all about continuity errors.
We are in everyway in a resurgence of 1990s Marvel...and ever comic reader should be afraid of that...
In truth we are in a resurgence of the 1990's in general. Look, DC is bring more and more wildstorm, Image is bringing back Cyber Force and other Top Cow comics, Valiant is back, and Marvel cannot help but have 100000 books coming out a week. Next thing you know, Wizard will make their comeback.
@oldnightcrawler: I loved this arc too, but unfortunately, I do not think that it is going to have serious character changes in the universe; look at WatX and ANX, Iceman and Kitty are better than ever and there was no hint of his demise. I think Marvel just let Marjorie do her own story, without it effecting canon.
I'm actually more excited by the Simonsons. I loved their work on the original X-Factor.
this, Louise was a perfect writer who took over The New Mutants when Claremont left too. She wrote great stories. Plus I love Bob Mcleod, I have the entire first series of New Mutants and Bob was such a great artist; I am excited to see him back.
I actually liked this movie. I personally am not a big Wolverine fan, but I love Viper and Silver Samurai! And I thought that they had a great, and gorgeous, actress for Viper; along with their rendition of Silver Samurai, which was fun. I just wonder why this got 3 out of 5, while Man of Steel got 5 out of 5. It kind of settles the debate that this website leans towards DC in order to keep their exclusive interviews.
