The Official Siege Thread

#1 Posted by xerox_kitty (15762 posts) - - Show Bio

Because it's been a little hard to find using the Search box, there have been a few duplicate Siege pages made.  Oopsie!   Hopefully with this thread in the forums people will see ComicVine's Siege page
 
So please use this page to post all your gossip, news, rumours, hopes & desires for the newest of Marvel's cross-over events.

 Can't wait for him to appear. I hope he rematches Sentry with his new powers.

What's Siege again? Dark Reign the remix?
 
Maybe it's just Bachalo's terrible art, but Noh-Varr's costume is a major downgrade

I'm hoping its the art. I'm waiting to see it done by another artist, but so far I agree its kinda a downgrade.

Dark Avengers Annual #1 - my favourite book of the week by far. 
 
I love his new costume.

What new powers does Noh-Varr have?
#10 Posted by DEGRAAF (7881 posts) - - Show Bio

this thread should be anchored to the top of the forums page like dark reign and blackest night

I'll pin this so it's easier to find as well.  And here's that checklist so you can keep up and not miss anything.

Me too.

His full power set hasn't been revealed. Besides the new costume, he has shown the ability of flight and teleportation so far. The Supreme Intelligence made them seem like they will be more powerful than the original Nega-Bands.
 
"But these bands are of a different design and different power source than the ones Mar-Vell wore with controversy and honor. These were created especially for you. They are far more advanced and far more precious."

Who was the mystery character who jacked up that Doombot in The Siege: Cabal?

Presumably the same dude that was presented in their first meeting.
 
Whoever it was, it made Taskmaster poop his pants.

If it has to be one of the ones in the "Who is the secret weapon?" poster I'm guessing Thanos. Norman already had this "secret weapon" at the very beginning of Dark Reign. He didn't come in contact with Molecule Man or X-Man until way after Dark Reign started. Same goes with Bor. I doubt it is Scarlet Witch because Norman would have said something when Scarlet Witch(Loki) was running around with the Mighty Avengers. That would narrow it down to Mephisto, Beyonder, and Thanos.

So it begins, liked The Cabal kick off issue and interested to see how this all plays out.

Isn't Thanos dead? Also, why would the Hood and Taskmaster freak out and say "what the hell is that?" when the mystery character came out?

Well the other two options(based off the poster) is Beyonder and Mephisto and they make just about as much sense.

I would rather those two make an appearance even both than Thanos.I absolutely despise Thanos.

It shouldn't be that hard to believe. All of Noh-Varr's equipment came from the Marvel which led to victory against Three Galactus like beings and was able to contain living ideas.

The writers are overpowering him.If he goes from where he was to someone on the level of a character who can contend with Sentry that's ridiculous.

He's a boring villain and Marvel protected him for too long.I'm glad Drax killed him.Showings against him have almost never made any sense.

We don't know that for sure. He hasn't had many feats since his first appearance.

Sentry is a b!tch. Seriously though, they have to make him unstable simply because he's so powerful. Superman has his moral boyscout complex that DC uses so that he can get his ass whooped. Sentry has his mental instability.

Superman's plot device is more acceptable.I understand why Sentry is how he is,the plot device just isn't very creative.It's one thing to be mentally unstable Bendis fails every time to have anything interesting or that make sense to come put of it.I would rather they send Sentry to space if their going to keep doing this.Sentry never gets to do anything.At least with Supes they give him a valid opponent in moderation.They don't do that with Sentry.He fights below his level almost all the time or they do something with his mental instability.That's why Dark Avengers is my least favorite Avengers book.Nothing that happens in it is worth a read.It's either they fight  and lose,Sentry dies,or they capture someone and they get away.That's DA in a nutshell.

Nope, I agree. But he's still a b!tch. No idea why they ever brought him back anyway.

Only because Moonstone is the team whore but she hasn't really done anything anyway so the only reason I remember she's on the team is because she's the one trying to be Ms.Marvel.

That's not his character.Bendis' Sentry is a b#tch.Paul Jenkins' Sentry was alot more than that.People actually counted on him for more than being an errand boy who holds back on people he would otherwise beat to make them look good.
