Have yet to receive my issue #1, but I may have been slightly spoiled on something that happens in the issue, and if it is true ...  >:( >:( >:(

I read it but don't remember anything earth shattering.  Basic setup issue.  What was the spoiler?

Not really Earth shattering as much as a total disregard for character. Or in this case characters equipment.

Heard that Cap asked ... someone (I forgot ... Havok?) to fire a shot at his shield to propel him into the air. Sort of like the Colossus/ Wolverine toss. Problem is ... and any writer should know this and any editor should damn well stop it ... the problem is that his shield works in the exact opposite way. It is made of Vibranium. It absorbs inertia and kinetic energy. How many times has that shield been blasted and Cap moves not or in most cases send the blast back? Hell, they even show it in the Avengers movie when Cap stops Thor's hammer. CAP STOPS THOR'S HAMMER.

Now, suddenly, due to writers desire, Cap can use his shield as a launching device?

This isn't Flash or Invisible Woman finding a new way to use their powers, this is a total disregard to a predetermined law of action.

Look, I know this entire rant is about as base comic nerd as you can get, and someone could easily read it aloud in a Steve Urkel voice  :D but that doesn't change the fact that this is one of the problems I have with current writers. They take a story they want to tell and mold and reshape the characters around it, instead of the other way around.
 >:(

Of course, if this didn't happen, and I heard wrong, I shall, in MY best Urkel voice say "Did I do that? Nevermind"
 ;D

EDIT - Now don't get me wrong, Cap has been knocked around before using that shield, but getting blown back a few feet from impact from a high-output power slam, is not the same as being propelled into the air by a mere plasma blast. Again, he stood tall against Mjornir without being rocketed back 500 feet. And once again I made this post even more nerdy.

Meh. That's how I felt. Nothing really drew me in.

Haven't had the time to read this yet, but did flip through ...

Ok - we're over a year into this and the recent previews peeked my interest.

Seems like I remember folks saying they like it.

What's the skinny?  Any good now?  I bailed after the Red Skull arc.

Its the only Marvel book I've decided to pick up on hardcover. I REALLY enjoy it~quite good!

The only other book I'd go for in HC will be Aaron's Thor; and who knows when he'll show his colors and tank on the book? He's usually great for a year, then it all falls to utter crap.

Well over a year so far and I'm still loving it. Your Millage May Vary.  :D

I also thought Scalped was great from beginning to end and it was over 50 issues.

I didn't read Scalped; glad for that!

My Aaron experience came down to Ghost Rider (got real bad at the end), Incredible Hulk (went HORRIBLY bad at the end), and Wolverine (which, admittedly, was pretty strong throughout, but flattened out at his end run).

So, that's how my appraisal of Aaron was formed. While the League of Gods is a little silly in thought, I'm really enjoying it, and hope it always stays strong!!!

I had a marathon read this week and I've caught up to issue 25.  Pretty fun stuff by Remender.  Reminds me of his Uncanny X-Force.

Remender does a great job with large casts and he continues that trend here.  Plus a lot of nice twists and turns.  I like what he does with Havok and Wasp.  Also does a great job with Scarlet Witch.  Of course everything builds on top of each other to get us to Axis.

I'll be picking this back up when issue 26 hits Marvel Unlimited.

I'll go as far as giving it a 5 out of 5 Archangel babies.

You mean issue #1 (You know it's Marvel. It just got re-launched)   ;D

Ha, wow, now that is high praise  ;D (I loved it as well)


Title: Re: Uncanny Avengers

Its so good, it's made me begin to hunt down the X-Force/ Uncanny X-force runs of his (which were GREAT and all fed into this, and then into Axis as well! )

Remender is rather high on my list, these days.

Lol. I knew it was getting a new member roster but didn't realize they were renumbering.  Should have figured that and definitely not surprised!

As for the new team ... I kinda like Peidro and Wanda being back together on a team, and Brother Voodoo is ... okay (no Stephen Strange  ;)) and Vision is, well, fantastic news and Remender is already writing Cap so his inclusion is a no brainer (expect a cross-over soon), but just not a huge fan of Sabretooth or Rouge. Of course Rogue was a much needed plot device in the last run, but I think Remender just likes her anyway where I am just not that huge a fan.

Still looking forward to it though

Issues #24 and #25

This book is still steadily impress me. I am soi glad some one twisted my arm (IE I lost a bet) and had to ... decided to try this title again.

The team, now pulled apart more than ever, are actually starting to work well with each other. And I am also excited to see that there may be two additional members of this team that I did not expect and yeah, I am digging it. They may not, but the way these two issues went, I have a feeling that both
Shocker and Scorpia
may soon join up. I've already said too much so I won't go into why I think that, but you can read it and you will see.
 ;)

The art in the first half of issue #25 was also really nice and I hope they stay on for a long time. It maybe the same artist as #24, but as I no longer have access to the issues and issue #25 had about 3 different pencilers listed on the cover (or at least two), I am not sure who did what and if they were there or not. Yes, I can't remember the art from issue #24 from a couple days ago either. Sad I know.
 ;D

They only thing I would change about this book is Pietro's costume (I have hated that damn F.F button since the first time I saw it ... made me honestly think (along with Deadpool being involved) that this most recent incarnation of Uncanny Avengers was going to be a humor book, because who ... I say who, would ever think that having a freaking fast forward symbol on a guy that can run fast is a good idea? Oh sure, it SOUNDS great in your mind  ;D, but hell no, it doesn't look great on the paper.
 >:(

Anyway, waiting for this team to settle in here soon (I hope) and for that penciler that I like to hopefully stay on. whoever that is and even if they are already on the title
 ;D

7 outta 10 - induced mystical vomiting
  :D :D

Kim Jacinto? Never heard of her/him? for artist.

Where is Pepe? That guy was great too!! Okay, I checked, Pepe did 23, and Jacinto did 24. A fill in, but a fill in that Perry loves? Also, Duggan is done at issue 23? Jim Zub takes over? Hmm...

Well, I enjoyed it for sure. Not because it was perfect, but it had a style (especially on page 2 or 3) that was very Jerome Opena like and I think that carried well here, with the past being what it is and all.
 :)

Also, Duggan is done at issue 23? Jim Zub takes over? Hmm...

Was that when it happened? I knew he left after the close of that last arc, but wasn't sure when. And I am, so far, digging what Zub is laying down.
