Okay now that is out of the way. I am SERIOUSLY worried about what I read here in issue 7 of the Avengers book.
First off - 'trouble keeping himself together'? Oh poop. Tony mentions this almost immediately after finding WM. Also what we find out here is that the Wonder Man who attacked the Avengers back in issue one, the version we all thought was a version of Simon from a different universe, is in fact the regular Simon from the standard Marvel Universe. That's not good. So, that's the costume they decided to go with? Weak. Weak. and Weak.
Moving on - so this is really the stance that Simon is going to take - Disband the Avengers because they hurt more than they help? Seriously? I'll tell you, I LOVE Bendis' writing, love it. He has revitalized the entire Avengers lore, making it as popular or even more popular than the Justice League. With that being said, it is official, he has NO idea what to do with Simon. None whatsoever. That's very disappointing to me. It's so tough for me to see the way Heinberg is writing him over in the Childrens' Crusade - perfectly and then see the way Bendis is destroying him.
Honestly, I would rather not see him in print than to see him this way.
What is Simon going to be the new Henry Gyrich? God, I hope not.
Is Simon going to officially make the turn to villain? Please no.
I think that Simon is going to be the back plot for quite a while in this run of the Avengers.
Take a read of the issue boys. Let me know what you think.
