Subj: New Avengers #15: Muffs a squid...

New Avengers 015

Yes, it's clear this never ending storyline is about grand alternate lives of alternate (A-list) heroes ('cuz Ultimates is so successful) and the heroes of 616Earth able to do busywork as they are now able to watch (effectively putting Uatu out of business). The threat is universes (#'s du jour) cancelling each other out after the (convoluted) mechinizations of the bosses of the oh (not) so popular Builders from the recent Infinity Event ('cuz it was so successful too). The Illuminati continue to think and can change the course of history not to mention (ludicrously) change the course of the cosmic axes as they (repeatedly) explain with their techknow jargon. Black Swan is the only new character of note that has (uninspiringly) sat in a prison since the beginning and our heroes have been following blindly all her ritualistic jargon. The title continues to be all very... overreaching. Hence disappointing.

Black Panther wins and loses. He continues with monthly title exposure along with his unique City of the Dead setting he provides the team and prisoners. BUT he really doesn't do much but nod his head a lot - plus humbles Tony's in the IQ department some. And what's this another City of the Dead is located under Italy in Avengers World 4? How... trope. It would be so rewarding for his reputation to get definitive/interesting interactions with each and every of his teammates (by now).

Beast is the "HERO OF LEGEND"?! Really? What legend would that be?! Bringing Teen Jean to the future to muck things up more? Plus, he looks like a flippin' corny muppet on that first page(see above). (And that's not the good kind as in Muppets Most Wanted out now. ;\) )

Tony is made the fool here:

Maximus steals facetime from Black Bolt for no reason. And they both steal the shared universe experience as this must take before the INHUMANITY launch which has been out for some time. They don't do much except walk the dog.

Namor oddly[read: UNcredibly] steps aways from the universal crisis without compare. Huh. Aparently he want to MUFF A SQUID somewhere else. "Muff a squid"?! Sounds like a distasteful endeavour!

Dr.Strange deal with the devil story is frustratingly put on hold.

Reed runs the show. He also too casually-in-passing introduces/implements an A.I. in this new A.I. age at Marvel. His the show via The Bridge is, this time, apparently some alternate Black Swan, with the help of her leader or something, up against 'the bosses' and an alternate Reed and alternate Iron Man and some other guy that might be named KI WASSURU. Something happens, not sure, lost interest at this point. Next issue it looks like Faux Swan face off against the 616 New Avengers.

What say you? Cancel it? Change it? Or keep going?
