I'm so out of sync with this series fell behind around issue 15. DC needs to put out the trades of First and Second Acts now.
Novemberx2's forum posts
I've pretty much forgotten most of it, even the soundtrack (Maybe because I've already heard all the music growing up from my parents, so I wasn't exposed to for first time like some people).
The only thing I clearly remember from it was that it was another macguffin plot.
It just another Instant Gratification Marvel Film, fun but forgettable in long term.
I suspect most people are most likely only remembering/hyping it more now is because its the end of the blockbuster season. The film is made for casual blockbluster audience who move from blockbluster to blockbuster film, but here what's gonna replace it in the audience mind? nothing for a while. (that also explains why its still number 1 in cinema's - little competition. Secondly on the internet you've got that short term tumblr gif/Meme expressionism, but again that will also fade pretty quickly when something comes along to replace (maybe Doctor Who/Sherlock etc).
Better Question: If GoG 2 comes out in start/Middle of crowded blockbuster summer will it have the same impact on the audience?
Good news all round!
As great as he was in Iron man 1, all that character growth and charm was for nothing after every film since then has made him making him to an egotistical jerk. A great actor completely wasted by poor direction from the studio,directors and writers. A good director would reel him in, keep him focused, controlled and tone him down. It feels like Marvel and Favreau don't get why people like Iron Man 1 or the idea that less is more. Honestly, Downey Jr remains the least appealing thing about Avengers 2. at least the Ruffalo, johansson and evans acting will out shine him like they did original Avengers.

the legal jargon has pretty inaccurate through out the series.
Soule is literally doing one of the oldest legal trick, use language that lay people won't understand to make it seems harder then it is and you as the solicitor/barrister know what your doing, because you need to make the client think they need your service. I wasn't fooled by it, but then I'm in the profession, as result I found it a lot less enjoyable, neither really succeeding as either superhero comic or a legal drama. 3/5 the book would be better taking a lesson from Dan slott (oh god I'm regarding dan slott) approach to legal stuff: Gloss over it or make it silly.
@vrakmul: too accept human nature is not perfect is more rational view then some flaws idea of believing some utopian concept. we cannot completely prevent things like jealous, greed, aggression etc but we can try to reduce them. Same with risk, risks always exist, we can hope to reduce them but we'll never be able to foresee every possible risk.
didn't rocket raccoon want to steal a false leg from a disabled prisoner for fun in GOG?
I guess marvel is just against a pretty narrow interpretation of bullying then.
