    well he also had a lot of history with Tasha herself, it's not like he was just picking a random loved one.

    yeah I didn't say it is a fridging, but it feels a lot like one

    you have to admit "villain hurts people around hero in order to hurt hero" is a pretty tired trope

    It gets done a lot because it works. Like anything, it can be done badly.

    Here, though? Definitely handled well. It also fits the theme of this entire arc.

    Besides, you could just as easily argue that
    "Everyone lives happily ever after" is just as tired a trope.

    and I mean, besides that even
    I just hate it when happy couples are split up. It bugs the heck out of me.

    they were together a long time, it's not they didn't get a lot of mileage of them.

    Besides, the way it was done it will be perfectly possible for someone else to undo it a year from now

    Are they really bringing New Universe stuff in? Because if they are, I will buy all of that series right now. I loved Newuniversal.

    no one has come out and said that yes that is happening but yes it is totally happening

    Very awesome. I couldn't decide on an Avengers series to grab, but that seals it.

    As for something relevant, my MOTW is definitely that first splash page in Young Avengers. Apologies for the bad quality.

    if you are gonna read Avengers you probably should read New Avengers along with it.

    the only thing about YA #1 is that it could've used more Kate

    more kate, more loki, and less wiccan

    Ok I guess no one else is gonna ask so I'll bite the bullet.

    What was your problem with WatXM @antimatter?

    I don't think anti is actually angry about what happened she just clearly likes that character (as we all do)

    but I mean, this is clearly something Aaron's had planned for awhile.

    Crap I think I just went from avoiding anything Avengers to needing to read three of them. Maybe Avengers Assemble too, but I don't know anything about that.

    Actually I'd say the April Avengers 9 solicit is pretty outright.
    "NEW UNIVERSE"
    • Watch as the most dangerous weapon in the Universe is unleashed.
    • Two Universal SYSTEMS collide.
    • What good is a White Event if only leads to the destruction of the planet it was meant to transform?

    yeah thats definitely Starbrand.

    romance is in the air at the Jean Grey school, as the issue ends with not 1, not 2, but 3 kisses before literally jumping right into the big storyline Jason Aaron promised would begin in issue 25.

    Avengers Assemble is a fun superhero book but thats all it is, a fun superhero book.

    Avengers and New Avengers are both written by Hickman and are intrinsically linked, Hickman's said that they both tell the same story but from two different sides.

    I have no strong feelings one way or the other about the WatXM thing

    but that Winter Soldier thing feels like it's just a few steps away from fridging

    Eh,
    Black Widow is walking away essentially fine; and as Bucky points out, she's better off than he is.

  • Centipede DamascusCentipede Damascus Registered User regular
    one thought about WatXM
    it does kinda seem like Storm is not so much attracted to Wolverine as she is wanting to blow off steam and maybe acting out of frustration with T'Challa.

  • SolarSolar Registered User regular
    Young Avengers was great

    but I do hope this doesn't become the "Wiccan is a huge chump with some friends" show

    because seriously Wiccan is really annoying

    she is attracted to him, as it's noted in the issue the 2 of them have romantic history. But yes there is still the sense that she is acting out a bit.

    I love FF #3, but the real Dr Doom would never allow himself to be sullied by time traveler/ negative zone trash.

    I'm potentially worried about Fraction's voice for Doom

    His Doom is gonna be fine.

    Don't forget Scott and Emma.

    One positive thing to take away from Winter Soldier is that
    DD and Widow can be OTP again hooray!

    Well of course they had to break up Ronin and Crystal.
    Necrophilia is highly frowned upon and the corpse of Maya Lopez was starting to get pretty stinky.

    Alternative answer
    Clint's too busy to be in a relationship right now. He's got, like, the whole season of Dog Cops to watch still!

    I have a feeling that they might be angling to get her and Hawkeye together. Of course, first they have to break up Hawkeye and Spider-Woman, but that relationship is dumb anyway.

  • TexiKenTexiKen shuba shuba Registered User regular
    Good point, it would kinda suck though
    Hawkeye and Widow hasn't been a thing for decades (and those early issues clearly showed she was using Clint), and seems more like something the movie will force on them being the most "normal" heroes.

    Hawkeye and Moonstone, DD and Widow, meant 2 B.

    Whoops, Ronan, not Ronin, Clints old superhero name. The Accuser, of the Kree, and Crystal of the inhumans.

    If you want a fourth Avengers book I'd recommend Uncanny over Assemble

    Red Skull with Xavier's brain is really cool and kinda scary

    Assemble is really fun, but it's a pretty light read for a 3.99 book.

    As an aside, I hope they have a letters page in Assemble soon. I love letters pages.

    Having only recently jumped onboard with newer, current Marvel comics, I'm hoping someone can clear something up for me with Avengers:
    Who was the chick with the afro (I'm guessing it's not Misty Knight) that made Ex Nihilo and crew back down? Is she new or is she an existing character?

    Captain Universe.

    Its a cosmic-type force called the Uni-Power that tends to inhabit a host during times of crisis. The lady is just the current host, and I'm assuming we'll have a back story issue later on.

    The character herself is new, but her superpowers are called the Uni-Power, an enigmatic force in the Marvel Universe that basically empowers random people in times of great need. When empowered, these people are called Captain Universe. I'd be willing to bet that this will all be explained for new readers eventually, though.
