Quote:It's actually incredibly lazy.
It's inconceivable to me that Marvel doesn't recognize the truth of this statement themselves. The only thing I can guess at is the current crop of writers do not want to create anything unique for the company as they are waiting to use new ides with an independent company once they leave Marvel.
I respect that. Look at Gravity: I LOVED that character, but what a monumental waste. He's been a D-list extra here and there but I'd LOVE to read about that character in an ongoing that Marvel will never have.
I didn't read much of Hickman's Avengers but it looked like he created quite a lot of cosmic level villains for that run, I was pretty impressed with that move considering how much more of an impact they could have made in an creator owned Image type of title.
