Love this feature!

@The Mighty Monarch: Yeah, where's the Morning Glories love? Flash is pretty overrated, but I've only ever read last month's issue, so my opinion isn't valid.

Thanks for writing this article! Super useful for a guy like me who's looking for a few new books to add to his pull.

It's a bummer. I pulled X-23 and it will be a shame to see her book go. I hope they find more work for Marjorie Liu.

@blur1528: If you didn't read Ultimates #3, Jessica Drew is in that. She doesn't get to do much (or succeed at anything), but she's in it.

@Babs: Right on. My mistake on the reading there.

I think you misread issue 2, Sara. Strife/Eris repeatedly calls Hera mother and she refers to Ares as her brother.

EDIT: Whoops, I misread that. You're right Sara, sorry!

@blur1528: Both Jessica Drew and, if I'm not mistaken, Ben Grimm work for the government. Spider-Woman, specifically, is a SHIELD agent, but I wouldn't be surprised if we saw Ben/Sue in this first arc considering that Reed is the villain.

I came to Static following Rozum and I didn't really like the first issue. Without Rozum I'll be dropping it.

I'm hoping/guessing that this will just be an anniversary event

@ziplizard: I'm not a woman, but I agree with you on how poorly women are portrayed in comics. One would hope that female artists/writers might do a better job of it. It's a problem for both genders, for sure. I find that a lot of men write women like men with boobs or like how they wish women were. Realistic portrayal of women in a lot of media is kind of rare. Likewise some women are terrible writers for men. I love that we're talking about diversity in comics right now.

@Battlepig: As a Hispanic man, I'm so excited about the prospect of a Latino Spider-Man. I agree with you that good writing is good writing, but I've got to admit that seeing Marvel's flagship character go this route is really exciting for me. I would have bought the book either way, but this is really cool so far. I hope that Bendis doesn't try to overdo it, but most of all I hope that this new kid is awesome and has great stories written for him. By your logic, what does it matter who he is or where he's from? If the stories are good, who cares? Change for the sake of change is ok sometimes. Stagnation is the enemy of creativity and innovation.
