Quote:Oh yes, I forgot, we live in the era of Party Animal Parker, he would never do anything so crass as mention a personal loss to anyone. Not even to his wife who went through the loss with him.
Quote:Well, I recall this scene and I recall commenting about it on this forum some years ago.
It has little to do with Peter's characterization. It just doesn't make sense for Peter or MJ to pull themselves aside in a team book and have a conversation that the rest aren't privy to, or to blurt it aloud and to ruin what is an otherwise aw look at the baby moment.
Quote:I would agree with you about Bennett's resurrection if the story wasn't completely awesome. I think Remender constructed such a great story about Flash Thompson, about how someone who has a different upbringing on "great power, great responsibility" and what he does with it. I really don't have a problem with the "comic booky" nature of his resurrection because...well...its comic books. Many fans on this board seem to talk fondly of Ock's Clone Saga era death and his resurrection story. Osborn has come and gone
Quote:Well, I haven't read it, nor do I intend to read it. I consider the entire story of Flash as Venom a waste of a good character (Flash being practically the only "normal" friend of his age-group left from the old days). And the return of an established recurring villain like Doc Ock is an entirely different animal than needlessly bringing back Bennett Brant with a completely different character, especially considering that Bennett had only appeared in one story and had had no interaction with Flash Thompson (he lived in Philadelphia, Flash in New York). But then arbitrarily changing people's characters in idiotic ways to suit his plots is Remender's usual MO, something I have had to suffer through throughout Uncanny Avengers so far, especially with regards to one of my favourite characters, Rogue.
I chose Ock simply because he doesn't have a healing factor and he seems to be a fan favorite so people handwave it when "comic book" stuff happens to him. But when it happens with other characters, well that's just taking things too far!
You won't catch me disagreeing with you on Remender's Uncanny Avengers. It has overall been a huge disappointment with only a few bright spots. But I was a fan of Uncanny X-Force, Punisher, Secret Avengers, and Venom. I had a lot of the same initial concerns about Venom as well.
I could go on and explain why Bennett works in the context of the story (it actually has very little to do with Flash) or why I think Flash is the best Venom to date. But you've already formed your opinion without reading it so I really don't see the point.
