Subj: I am an Avenger #1...
Posted: Mon Sep 13, 2010 at 02:18:42 pm EDT (Viewed 520 times)


SIDEBAR: Recently saw a TV ad with a new MAKE MINE MILK campaign: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-XPcrYqOQc and couldnt help but wonder if Marvel Marketing would jump on that upset about trademark infringement but then saw this issue and thought maybe they just turned around and copied from another "I AM..." marketing campaign: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BRI-A3vakVg&feature=related \:\)

Okay, back to the issue at hand...

...for what its worth. And, to regretfully be a bit snippy, it ain't much.

STORY 1:
-Decent poser cover but if no dead Avenger anthology tale is told in the 5 issues then having Thunderstrike there makes no sense.
-Did not care for this art. Missing body parts/details seemed a bit lazy.
-They kept to quota of stating Wicc and Tedd were gay at least 3 times.
-More interested to hear the shock about Kate and Eli than this entire adventure.
-The reason for the oddly activated security mystery paid off well enough with the reveal. However the LAME attempts to get past the failing Doc Ock arms was not. [Also, apparently the arms and lasers don't activate for demons from the sky - which is actually another knock at NA this week.] Why would Kate think that a shrunk Stature could better steer a bent arrow and why would Cass grow big behind the bushes in the middle of performing this ludicrous feat? Here's an idea, Vizh, instead of asking Speed to stop why not have him take one step back? Thankfully uber Wicc proves the logical choice to magick past the defenses but that is the kookiest spell to work - just 'cuz he WANTED to feel at home the (whole) security system shut down for him?! Or just as bad, is if Clint just turned it off at that point because repeating that intent was believable enough for him.
-??!! Thats it?! After all these months of anticipating a moving scene reclaiming of the Hawkeye name?! *Sheesh* Sure its in character but what a let down. Oh well, at least we can see how Cage reacts to namestealing still after Power Man #1.
-So, Director ROgers of the USA says they are officially Avengers now. Curious if this will be the issue handbooks note as their official 1st appearance as active Avengers. (Doubt it for some reason.)
-Dr.Strange is NOT an Avenger unless this spoils the end of the NA arc. And Spider-woman is just visiting unless the male chauvinists on MA ditch their only female member next ish. They a probably just visitng for ¢ameo$ as favor to Marvel Marketing. \:\)

STORY 2:
-Clever title. More so-so art. Welcome footnote. And yet another new hairdo change (back) for Misty. Good baby news to avoid another BND-type retcon?! ODDLY no mention that they are engaged AFAIK! Guess, Danny has changed his mind about doing the Avengers thing on call only. HIDDEN ASIA? EVERYTHING A NEW MOTHER NEEDS? HORSEMAN PASS BY? TROUBLE IS MY BUSINESS? Maybe one of those books are better to read than this one? ;\) Or one of these?...


STORY 3:
-Here is a COMPREHENSIVE recap and review FYI...
'Squirrel Girl returns to NYC."

STORY 4:
Was hoping for an actual gnu in the MU with the title but only got Wolverine as literally the butt of the simple one-line joke. 'He does not have any tail.'
