"If so, I think I may stop buying Avengers for the first time in almost thirty years."
I am a huge Avengers/Wonderman fan and the day I walked away from Marvel comics was Force Works #1.
They killed Wonderman and I said "That's it."
I came back for the Perez/Busiek and left again when they did not seem to know what to do with him.
I keep seeing teasers about bendis doing something with Wonderman and then nothing.
Things like this that went nowhere:
Or maybe he meant that his legacy is he started a villain?
: 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.
