      Bluish guy is Adam Warlock.



    Quote:
    Seriously? When the latest Guardians of the Galaxy film seems to indicate the movie Warlock will have the classic golden skin? That is really weird. Oh wait - is this some sort of Magus incarnation?

Well, it might be his Magus incarnation (who was always blue or purple or something), but still him.

        There will be some weird Iron Man: Hong Kong Heroes one-shot that will have Tony Stark in it but won't have Tony in the suit, apparently, as whoever will be in the suit is a mystery. It's based on some Disney World ride? Villains are Baron Mordo and Arnim Zola. Who wants to bet the mystery suit-wearer will be Chinese? As this will be a whole story told in one issue (gasp) I will probably buy it.

      Could not possibly be less interested. I actually might be more interested in Moon Girl, and I'm not interested in her either.



    Quote:
    Chinese Iron Man? Come on! How can you not love that? (That was sarcasm. But weirdly, I'm interested. I have this odd suspicion that the next movie-verse Iron Man will be Chinese. So this one-shot is a sneak preview.)

I'm not interested in Chinese anything. Of all the countries in the world, I'm about the least interested in it.
I'm not interested in Iron Man anything... but I'm still more interested in Riri than this.

      And while I'm on about lack of interest, this "No Surrender" thing really isn't being sold well, imo. I'm interested, but... honestly, I'm not sure why.



    Quote:
    Me either. I'm interested in the concept of a weekly Avengers book. I'm interested in what Mark Waid might think is a cool Avengers story. I think a weekly Avengers book could become the centerpiece of the whole Marvel universe. It could drive the bus. I'm also vaguely curious about the new Voyager character. But none of this rises to the level of genuine excitement.

Maybe event burnout.

        Incredible Hulk #714 will feature Amadeus Cho on a rampage and is billed as World War Hulk II Part 1. Since Cho will finally be rampaging, I will probably buy this.

      Zzzz...



    Quote:
    The whole point of the Hulk is rampaging.

Eh. The point of Hulk is to be a monster. That doesn't necessarily mean rampaging.

Needs a new gimmick.

        WEAPON H #1!!!!
        Oh yes. This is what I wanted. Written by Greg Pak too. Beautiful. Must-buy. I am actually considering a new collector-ish impulse. I currently own or have ordered every single appearance of Weapon H thus far. I may decide to purchase his every appearance in any book. He could become my signature character. Heck, I'd rename myself Weapon H if it wouldn't mess up my godlike Maintainer powers (which it would).

      Wait... you're not being sarcastic? The whole idea just makes me violently ill.



    Quote:
    I guess I'm just really in touch with my inner six year old.

The Marvel Multiverse needs less "Weapon Alphabets," fewer Hulks, fewer claws, and a lot less interconnectiveness. Making these kinds of connections just makes things less special. It's creative cannibalism.

      I'm the guy who really didn't enjoy the first issue of 2-in-1. So... we're getting another story of failing powers (YAAAAWN!), and Johnny's psych state just seems... dumb. I mean, I liked Ben's role, and I'm glad there's something FF-related. Just not impressed with the execution.



    Quote:
    Johnny's mental state seems plausible to me. A huge part of his heart was ripped out of his chest. As for the failing power - yeah, I'm hoping it goes somewhere interesting.

Never has in the past.

All of a sudden he's extremely mopey? Seems forced.

      Quote:
      Only other thing I'm interested in is this New Mutants thing.



    Quote:
    Yeah, I noticed that. Needs Cable.

No thanks. I like Cable, but not when he's leading a group. I think they're too smart for him at this point, honestly.

      Generally, I'm not seeing a bright future for Marvel. I think I'm going to dive deeper into the Distinguished Compost.



    Quote:
    They're coming out with eight new books that look interesting. Also Aquaman has been tremendous and of course there's Future Quest which is one of my favorite comic books of all time.

Oddly enough, despite our disagreements on these Marvel books, I'm enjoying Aquaman and Future Quest, as well.
