Is anyone else following this run?

On top of that, is anyone enjoying it? I really enjoyed most of it but there are a few characters I don't even care at all about. I really like Captain Wonder, Phantom Reprter, and Black Widow. The others I really think the stories are too slow. Any thoughts?

I'm diggin' the series.  It does feel slow at times.  It also feels like it's not coming out on a consistent schedule.  And as for the slowness, I'm still waiting to see who killed Blue Blade.  I do wonder where they're going to go with it.  Will it have any sort of life after the 12th issue?

I honestly would like to see my favorites in other comics as well to give them more exposure. But I agree with you G~man on the Blue Blade thing. Not too broken up abou thim dying though.

I mirror this.

Although I have enjoyed the run so far, I wonder what future the characters have in the Marvel Universe.

I was reading it but I haven't picked up any since 5. I liked it, I just didn't feel motivated to keep going.

'm loving the concept of the series but JMS is dragging a few things out.

Picked up this book, a little while ago, found it pretty interesting, I liked how they brought back ancient characters, that had been forgotten in time.

I especially like Black Widow character, just because I like all dark themed characters, she made deal with devil, she is goth and she kills people very messily, that's dark enough for me. She is actually the main reason I went back and looked up older issues, so I got all of them right now. I really hope that they use at least most popular characters from this book and use them in other books.

I miss this series. It is a shame that it never had a real chance. It did not even get to finish the story arc. It dealt with issues that Captain America should have been dealing with when they thawed him. Ultimate Captain America seemed to have the struggles these character have. But 616 Captain America never seemed to.

As far as I knew, they stopped after issue 8. That is the last one my local comic shop carried.

I followed it. I enjoyed The Twelve: Operation Spearhead, but it wasn't enough.
