Yes, I'm upset that he hasn't been on Siege and suddenly appears in Avengers #1??!! That is suspect.
The consensus seems to be negative, I know Bendis has his pet strongman in Cage and everybody else is second bananas to him but I still had hopes he might treat Wonder Man with respect but who knows you guys might be right. We will have to wait and see though.
--Previous Message-- : Yeah, after reading the preview, I do not : think it is an alternate reality Simon. And : honestly, I think that does not bode very : well for the character at all. I think this : may be a final trip over to Villainville for : our hero. And seriously - what a waste. : AND how completely out of character. Is : this going to be the "I told all of you : that guy was a crook on national television : and none of you listened to me and now I'm : super pissed and going to start attacking : all of you for no real reason" : storyline? If so, I think I may stop buying : Avengers for the first time in almost thirty : years. I know that the character has been : very difficult for some writers to take on - : if that's the case, just don't use him. : Create a new villain. I'm pretty tired of : WM being treated like a fourth-rate : character with absolutely no personality. : Go back and read WCA or Busiek's volume : three of Avengers - then you'll see what : happens - great characterization, personal : stories, not this bullsh*t. Lethal Legion? : Seriously? Completely out of character. : Simon not busting out of jail to help at : Asgard? Bullsh*t. Sorry, I'm ranting but I : just feel like I see where this is going and : it isn't going anywhere good for the boy. : : My two cents. : : --Previous Message-- : Since Wonder Man seems to be having issues : with Pym, he's probably confronting him : about the Wasp(since Simon and Jan were : close). Perhaps with the loss of Jan, his : brother(since Wondy thinks Eric is dead)and : Wanda going AWOL, Wonder Man finally snaps. : Or, with Bendis wanting to do more damage to : the character, Wondy is having a giant hissy : fit because nobody asked him to join any of : the Avengers' teams. : : But it still could be an alternate Wonder : Man. With the long hair and jetpacks on the : belt(looking a lot like the John Byrne era : Wondy)and with Kang looming on the horizon, : perhaps this is an alternate who doesn't : want to go back to his own timeline. : : : :
