    What's Namor up to in Secret Wars?
    He was with the rest of the Cabal (Thanos, Ultimate Reed Richards, a few other mosterous people) in a multiversal lifeboat when the universe ended, so he survived with his 616 memories in tact.

    He's with the Cabal and has basically lost any humanity he had left after being betrayed and left to die by Black Panther

    Dude is gonna be real mad when he sees who survived on the life raft

    I don't think we've seen any of the Illuminati yet?

    I dunno I'm really out of my depth with this stuff

    Strange is one of Doom's two primary advisors, and Hickman has confirmed that it's the regular Marvel Universe Strange.

    Bianchi is the one

    It stays with him for about 4 issues and it looks awful

    Bianchi fits certain kinds of stories really well and others TERRIBLY

    I think he was pretty good on New Avengers

    Nothing is worse than Mike Deodato's art on Avengers

    There were people defending him in the last thread basically saying "but being a comic artist is haaaard"

    You know what? Plenty of other people manage it just fine without using shitty poser action figure art, okay?

    Would you excuse Greg Land for that shit? Because I would not

    Deodato's work is only slightly better than that, far as I'm concerned

    (I'm really just bitter because that casino issue would have been a classic if he hadn't fucked it up god damn it Mike)

    I mean I think that looks fine

    Also Borderlands is inspired by comic book art so

    If it started like that I might be okay with it

    But I like the artist the series starts with a lot more so this feels like a downgrade

    Fortunately the people they switch to after that are pretty much fine

    You should read Hickman's FF

    It is both really good and Steve Epting, the first New Avengers guy, does a lot of it

    I'm still reading a bunch of Silver Age stuff and I realized today as I read Fantastic Four #13, that when the FF go to the moon and meet the Watcher in that issue, they are doing so before the actual moon landing happened in real life.

    The great thing about namor is that he's usually completely right

    Like you may fundamentally disagree with him or stuff or think that he's ethically wrong or whatever, but unlike Doom or thanos or most other characters, he's a great dick because he actually is really wise and intensely clever. He doesn't lose because he underestimated RICHARRRRDS, He doesn't miss the forest for the trees, he just also burns the forest down because one of those trees said Atlantis sucked.

    Like when the illuminati is first assembled namor is the one to go oh man haha you guys are so out of your depth you are going to fuck this up instantly

    And he was totally right

    And when the incursions happened and they chose the path they did he was like you guys absolutely do not have the moral backbone to follow this through and he was totally right.

    Namor sees the long game, constantly.

    Namor sees the long game, constantly.

    One of my favorite parts of the great society arc(possibly my favorite comic arc of all time) is the page or two as the Illuminati and society discuss the bomb and it's slowing zooming in to Namor looking crushed because he already knows what's about to happen and the rest of his team is just sitting there pretending they didn't just threaten to blow up the society's earth.

    I wonder if the Great Society will return at some point. They may have died, but Battleworld seems to have basically reset that sort of thing. Though, Marvel may be hesitant to use a blatant Justice League homage too much.

    Well they've already got one Justice League analogue in Battleworld.

    Also, I'm playing Marvel Heroes and people are talking about the movies and how Wolverine was killed off to lower the success of the X-Men movies and the Spider-Man movie will be called The New Avenger and and and there's so much misinformation.

    I don't think he's that good an actor; he seems to pretty much have one character that he plays. Definitely wouldn't be surprised if he turns into the next nick cage (minus crazy financial mismanagement, maybe.) I like his hawkeye though

    finally got around to seeing avengers and
    I feel like the vision lifting the hammer thing kinda did not get enough play? Like, Thor is way too credulous of it and everybody else is just like 'oh okay, whatever, guess this guy's cool

    good movie though, I dunno why it got so many middling reviews

    hold your head high soldier, it ain't over yet
    that's why we call it the struggle, you're supposed to sweat
