    I like how in that Bleeding Cool spoiler thing, they have this air of " can you believe the people that leak this stuff, I mean look at this leak from earlier --> links to an earlier BC article..."

    The Newsarama review definitely hasn't changed my opinion, and the spoiler really doesn't

    I just can't see ock trying to out spiderman spiderman and it lasting very long. He's just one of those career villians who always looks for a chance to grab the world. From the solicits that have dropped this Spiderman has a good deal of hero work coming his way wether he wants it or not

    And even from what little context we have that Arena spoiler seems 100% in character for errybody.

    He's a black guy from Hawaii, not a native Hawaiian.

    I cannot imagine anyone will select that category.

    I dunno, Jeopardy contestants can be pretty big nerds sometimes.

  • CrimsondudeCrimsondude Registered User regular
    You don't have to be that big a nerd to ID the characters in like the third-biggest movie of all time, especially when one is a character whose first cover in 1941 is of him punching Hitler in the face.

    There's a 99% chance that Avengers Arena is going to involve a Littleville situation (ala FF #236, or more recently, the Fall of the Hulks crossover). I know this because I'm from the future.

    So there are two X-Force teams in NOW? How long until they go at each other?

    Read the preview of Cable and XF and damnit, I really do not need another book to buy.

    Unfortunately, while I think Corporate said it kinda trollish, he does have a point. Right now, I think Land's name- and lets face it, 'art' sells more books than Gilleon's name.

    Now, if everyone on Tumblr actually bought comic books instead of just looking at scans, it might be another thing..

    Man. The solitiations for Young Avengers are fantastic.

    I don't know any of the characters at all other than Hawkeye, but I'll probably be reading it.

    Its a unique line up.

    I feel like Arena called dibs on a lot of characters.

    Maybe some of Wolverines kids will migrate if it takes off. Quentin versus Loki in a douche off would be fantastic.

    Pretty rad week overall

    F4 was better than the first issue, but I still don't like Fraction's Thing at all. I love his Scott Lang though.

    Iron Man was pretty good, and an unusual story for Tony with some pretty dark beats.

    The ASM .1 issue that was pretty much Morbius issue 0 was so good it completely sold me on the book.

    Avengers Arena had a strong start, with Arcade having a really entertaining voice and everyone being pretty well characterized as well. The ending was very well handled as well and didn't feel like OH MAN SOMEONE DIED ISN'T THIS EXTREME like a bunch of people assumed it would.

    Cable and X-Force was also very strong out of the gate with great character work and unique voices. Larrocoa's art is also slightly better than his IIM stuff, it feels a little less creepy and Uncanny Valley-esque.

    Also the two best things from the March Solicits:

    and Keiron Gillen writing a Mr. Sinister/Loki team-up in A+X

  • KingofMadCowsKingofMadCows Registered User regular
    I think Arena isn't real. I don't remember Arcade ever being that good looking or powerful.

  • BlankZoeBlankZoe Registered User regular
    See, I dunno

    IT IS ALL JUST A VIRTUAL REALITY is such a cliche-ass cop out at this point that I think a writer as talented and creative as Hopeless wouldn't go for it.

    Arcade getting crazy powers somehow seems far more likely to me

    ahh, the reason I spent most of my life wondering why most christmas carol adaptations left out the second Marley brother.

    The Muppets Christmas Carol is probably my favorite adaption of that story.

    The Real Ghostbusters. "X-Mas Marks the Spot."

    Nothing like accidentally capturing the ghosts of Christmas with proton packs and throwing them in the Containment Unit.
