    My Moment of the Week is Deadpool being organ-mugged regularly without his knowledge. He gets knocked out and his organs and blood get harvested for the lead in to the next story arc.

    Also Greg Land takes a shot from the letters page as a response to an insult to his complexion: "If you want pretty faces, go read Iron Man! -Hurtpool"

    last comment on Teddy/Billy

    Billy is an annoying fuckup, yes and I get why people don't care for him

    but if there's a writer in comics that can make him awesome, it's Gillen.

    It's not that Billy screws up all the time, it's that he's always been at the front of any story they do, more than any other character.

    I think it says something when characters like Kate and Cassie moved away from YA, how they became a lot more likable to fans because they were actually able to get noticed for a change.

    Billy's kind of like Wolverine, only that there really isn't fan demand for him, so just put him in time out or something for an arc.

    Yeah

    every Young Avengers story becomes Billy and friends and it's a bloody pain

    just let someone else be the front guy for a change

    which was why the last issue was good

    Billy was not in it so much and everyone else got to do stuff instead

    well, him being the front guy would be not such a big deal if he was not also such a whiny little fuckup

    but it's six of one and half a dozen of the other, really

  • BalefuegoBalefuego Registered User regular
    Well it made sense when Heinberg was writing it because let's be honest Billy is a bit of a self-insert character.

    And thankfully Gillen seems interstates in addressing the problems with him.

    And also to be fair the first arc of YA wasn't billy centric either, it's just there have been so few stories about this team.

    Bale are you posting from your phone

    because I don't think you meant to put "interstates" there

  • BlankZoeBlankZoe Registered User regular
    Yeah, hopefully this arc is Gillen addressing Wiccan's, for lack of a better phrase, Mary Sue nature and moving past it.

    really I think that with Noh Var and Hulkling on the team, as well as Loki to an extent, there is a huge amount of potential for cosmic stories with the YA team

    they could definitely go into space and have cool space adventures based around the Kree and Skrulls

    I'd say this is guaranteed because it would give Gillen another excuse to use Death's Head

    Hmm, the new Nova is pretty young. Wouldn't be out of the question for a cross-over.

    Speaking of skrulls, they were noticeably absent from a recent summit of galactic superpowers, which included kree, badoon, freakin' Annihilus, and even Asgard, that took place in Guardians of the Galaxy. They have definitely fallen off of the galactic radar now after all their losses. So there's a potential story there - them targeting Noh Var could be about something beyond simple vengeance.

    There basically are no Skrulls left.

    There's at least a good amount that weren't into the religion of the ones who invaded Earth. There was the group that hid out on Knowhere, for instance.

  • BlankZoeBlankZoe Registered User regular
    And they are involved in Infinity, specifically the Avengers tie-ins.

    Between the Annihilation Wave, the faction that was defeated on Earth, and the remnants that were wiped out by the Inhumans, they're no longer a galactic superpower. But their empire was so huge there's no way they're about to go extinct anytime soon. If anything, there'll be more bands of pissed off marauders who aren't bound by politics going around trying to avenge their lost greatness at any cost.

    Plus, you know, they're pretty good at hiding.

    Though I liked that one bit in Thanos #7 where Thanos is just walking along, and then randomly kills a dude. When the local police are like "WTF?" Thanos just points out it was a Skrull.

    There was a Thanos series that went to #7 or more? I don't think I know about this series and that needs correcting!

    There was a Thanos series that went to #7 or more? I don't think I know about this series and that needs correcting!

    It was a 12 issue mini-series that took place after "Marvel: The End" and leads directly into Annihilation. It was collected in two six issue volumes, Thanos: Epiphany and Thanos: Samaritan; but they've been out of print for years and fetch crazy high prices right now, making them unfeasible to obtain. (Amazon has $84.95 as the cheapest available prices from resellers.. and that's for each volume. New it's fetching upwards of $300 bucks each volume)

    LUCKILY, due to the recent Thanos-mania, Marvel is reprinting this miniseries in a single TPB collection, Thanos: Redemption. You can actually get most of Thanos major appearences up until Anniilation either right now or by the end of the year.

    Avengers vs Thanos
    Silver Surfer: Rebirth of Thanos
    Infinity Gauntlet
    Infinity Gauntlet Aftermath(Not sure if he shows up in this)
    Infinity War
    Infinity Crusade 1
    Infinity Crusade 2
    Thor: Blood and Thunder
    Thor vs Thanos
    Thanos: Infinity Abyss (Reprint not up on Amazon yet)
    Marvel Universe: The End
    Thanos: Redemption

    As far as I can tell, in at least major appearances, all that's missing is some Silver Surfer issues inbetween Rebirth of Thanos and Infinity Gauntlet, the Cosmic Powers series and some minor stuff with Ka-zar and Deadpool. Oh, an annihilation is still pretty out of print. And I wouldn't quite recommend several of these unless you're a big Thanos fan (Infinity Crusade and Infinity Abyss are pretty meh.)

    I read Infinity Crusade #1 and it definitely reads like Starlin was just throwing stuff at a wall to see what stuck.

    The easiest way to get Annihilation is digitally. Comixology has it at $2/issue.

    Ya I thankfully have Cosmic from Anni to Imperative complete in singles. Never knew about a few of those tho ( of course it's the stupid expensive ones tho). Least the one is getting a reprint.

    MOTW for me was in Gambit. Gambit wakes up to find Joelle and Rogue duking it out and doesn't stop them cause he thinks he's dreaming and he wants to see where the dream goes. good stuff right there.
