I have stuck with Ms. Marvel and Avengers: The Initiative the entire way and I could not be more pleased. I think The Initiative is one of the best books out there right now. Even treating Triathalon with respect (gotta love any Busiek creation). And I have loved the character development with Carol. Great stuff so far!
--Previous Message-- : : Iím hanging in there. I like the concept and : I plan on sticking with it until the end if : for not other reason than its Skrull free : and right now I am desperately trying to : read anything without them whenever : possible. I plan on collecting my way : through the whole Secret Invasion thing. I : just canít bring myself to drop the Avengers : titles in spite of my intense dislike of the : invasion in the main titles. : : I will say this about the current issue of : Avengers/Invaders: I liked the Outlaw : Avengers storming the carrier and Clint as : Ronin fights Wonder Man in the splash page : telling Simon heís on the wrong side. It was : a small but cool character moment for Clint. : : Ever since he adopted the Ronin guise : Clintís been more or less not acting in : character. I personally hope Clint becomes : Hawkeye again after this whole Secret : Invasion thing is over. I feel heís being : totally wasted in his Ronin guise and the : Young Avengers Hawkeye just isnít cutting it : for me. Donít get me wrong, I love the : character but she ainít Hawkeye to me. I : kind of feel the same way about Red Arrow : (Arsenal) compared to Green Arrow. Heís cool : and has way more toys to play with, but : nothing beats the original for pure : character. : : Has anyone stuck with Ms Marvel or Avengers : the Initiative? So far Iím finding them to : be the best titles involved in the : crossover. At least things seem to be : happening in them concerning the Skrulls and : none of the plots and subplots of the titles : before the invasion have been sacrificed for : the sake of instant replays. Also, I dig Ms. : Marvel treating this as a full on war and : showing no mercy. Sheís rapidly becoming my : favorite Avenger in this whole thing. I only : wish Wonder Man were still in her mag for : this thing and kicking ass with her. : : --Previous Message-- : Well, if it had Wonder Man well written : being : the powerhouse he is meant to be and handing : the Sub-mariner his butt in a fight then of : course I would be buying it. : : --Previous Message-- : I agree. My biggest issue is the fact that : it : is a 12 issue mini series. An entire year : is just way too long to stretch this story : out for. The events of Secret Invasion will : be over and done with for months and this : series will still be going on. Yep, I've : had enough. : : : : --Previous Message-- : I bought issue #1, but I didn't follow it : after that. Comics are way too expensive : now for me just to commit to an entire : series like that, when there are so many : other titles out there. If it was $2 per : issue, I probably would have stuck with it : and purchased the entire series. : : : : : : :
