    Well, they're the ones that did it publicly. But a lot of heroes went against him pretty early on, including Tigra and the Avengers Resistance, War Machine, the Agents of Atlas, American Eagle (by keeping SHRA people off Navajo land), and I'm sure there's more I'm not thinking of.

    Also, Songbird, Punisher, X-Man, Steel Spider, American Eagle, Jack Flag, and random psychics in Ms. Marvel and Thunderbolts.

    Pfft, Clint actually tried to kill him, so he's the only cool one.

    And Punisher.

    Spider-Man went against Osborn in the American Son story arc of Amazing Spider-Man. Osborn managed to use the media to mostly cover it up, though.

    In Spider-Man: The List, Spider-Man stages a daring break-in to gain access to sensitive HAMMER documents, which he then releases to the press and the public.

    But of course, nothing ever came of that plotline.

    It was a one-shot, Norman's list of people to kill and he only kills Punisher. The capture Clint only to be rescued in the NA Annual. So nothing came of 'The List' at all.

    Well the Dethlok thing in Wolverine Weapon X seems to being used now, but other than that The List seemed a bit pointless.

    I did like Secret Warriors: The List though.

    1. Save the world
    2. Punch Norman Osborn in the face
    3. Drink a beer

    I wonder if he has to do them in that order? Like every time he saves the world he has to track down Norman and punch him in the face before he can relax with a nice cold one.

    His female faces actually seem reminiscent of his father's art. Kind of blocky and flat, but taken a little further.

    Personally, I don't mind them, as its consistent with his style.

    It's definitely reminiscent of his dads stuff, true. And I do really enjoy his style, his scenery detail and action scenes are always primo. Just sometimes the faces seem so sinister in his style, a little creepy is all.

    Also beast is distinctly sans-feline.

    Thunderbolts #143 was hella lame because they did nothing with USAgent, so he's out in paraplegic limbo for the next writer to probably ruin the character because they don't get how cool he is.
    Quicksilver beats the living shit out of Mr. X (who took the spear) though, and Paladin takes the spear and becomes a drifter, and Ant Man tells Headsman's brother he was a good guy and a hero, foreshadowing the brother taking up the role

    So I saw the scans, and I am really glad that this will never ever be mentioned again, because it's extremely fucking stupid. Basically every level is a cognitive failure.

    I don't necessarily mind that Marvel hates me for spelling correctly, but I do mind that they then take their hate out on cool characters. Poor Alexander.

    It wasn't, they make one mention to him being helped by medics and then the last page is a splash of the team Assembling to go run off and fight Void/Osborn.

    I'd love it if the next issue was Osborn, Cap and Void all turning to Taskmaster and saying "Just keep them away, we don't have the energy to pretend to be weak so they can look good"

    From reading today's New Avengers, it looks like Loki just furthered another part of his plan.
    Loki took back the Norn stones and used them on the heroes.

    Yeah, I think Siege #4 is going to have Loki being critical to the Void's downfall.

    After reading the Siege tie-ins that came out today...
    seems that although Loki caused the siege of Asgard he didn't mean for the Sentry to completely destroy it. In both New and Mighty Avengers it shows Loki seemingly helping the heroes in the fight with the Void and in Thor he explains his motivations in more detail.

    Nah...he totally meant for it to be brought down. He even said it needed to be brought down before the Siege began.

    More importantly regarding Loki...
    If his brief appearance in Mighty Avengers is any indication he might not live through Siege. I doubt his death will stick for long but it would still surprise me if the Void did kill him.
