  1. I am Groot”

    Yet another universe shaking event across multiple comic lines. All these universe shaking crossover reboot things are the reason I don’t follow US superheroes comics.

  2. Don’t they have any new ideas? I was reading old Phoenix storylines when I was a kid in the 90s. Boring.

  3. Namor has already hosted the Phoenix Force, in the Avengers vs. X-Men miniseries. His costume here is much like the one he wore then, at least above the waist — this one is black and gold armor below the waist as well as above, where the other one had red leggings and boots.

  4. Well, if Marvel would finally make a decent Phoenix film, I’d be happy. I mean, how can you mess up one of the mot famous superhero comic storylines of all times twice?

  5. Since when is Doctor Doom a hero? Do I need to know something about the past three decades of Marvel history that I’ve been blissfully ignoring?

  6. @Cat: Let’s just say the character has been through a few changes in the last decade, and that the series is doing an anti-hero kind of thing, and leave it at that.

  7. @Cat Eldridge: A friend gave me enough Fantastic Four and Avengers comics (which I enjoyed a lot) to lead up to Secret Wars (which was okay). I liked Bendis’s plotting and scope of vision quite a bit, but occasionally the prose got too purple even for me. I think this is a development which comes from the ending of that.

  8. @Mouse3: Unfortunately, Marvel has become obsessed with “events” and gimmicks such as variant covers, to the exclusion of actual storytelling. No wonder Disney is rumoured to be considering shutting the publishing side down and licensing its characters out to another company.
