Clark Gregg has been a pleasure to watch. Why oh why, does Whedon kill all the likable characters? I'm not complaining, for it seems to add to the emotional connection to his films. Anyway, this is Marvel, where dead is not dead.
Greetings. After 16 years away from the comic book world, I'm taking what seem to be baby steps entering a world that has gotten much bigger. When I left, the Hulk was green, Cyclops was not this crazy( a matter of perspective ) and nobody ever wore Aquaman briefs. Times have changed.
What brought me back was a chance encounter with a seller of some old Justice League titles and his retelling of some old story lines (mainly the Tower of Babel arc). Enter " the New 52" and I have the perfect place to start over. Currently I am reading most of the Batman titles along with Aquaman, Flash, JL, a little misc. and A vs. X.
Comic Vine has provided a great resource to those with questions such as myself. Thanks to all who are providing the information.
