Issue 1

Okay, I know his secret is well known now, due to solicits 10 months after this issue, but the detail I'm still going to discuss here

did he just kill Jack Flag?  Damn it, evil Hydra-Cap, you don't mess around my 90s Mark Gruenwald Cap wannabes! Particularly not the one who decided to run for a while with the good Guardians of the Galaxy team I loved! How dare you! Also,how would Cap be able to come back from that? Killing a hero? Please let Free Spirit (LOVE HER TOO) save his falling ass!!

Also, his new suit is too damned blue and way to busy with seam lines and randomly drawn clothing panels on the suit. Sheesh. gimmee some spandax stuff!!

did he just kill Jack Flag?  ... how would Cap be able to come back from that? Killing a hero?

I was thinking, if your idea of Free Spirit didn't work out (I like that better than what they probably will do), that they/someone/cap would just use the Cosmic Cube/Kobik to wipe away all the questionable actions like that. As it/she is responsible for this Cap's change, it would be easy to make it so the "bad stuff" never happened. The great thing about the Cosmic Cube is it can do the writers and editors jobs pretty efficiently, if not correctly
 Cheesy

With the new Cap highlighted event coming up, I am assuming the Cube/Kobik will be making some huge changes shortly. Will that include returning our heroes to us? I can only hope, but I doubt it. I mean Marvel is just falling away from me with their current plans right now. Wow, how did this little reply go THERE so fast? That went sideways quick ... well, while I am here ... I may as well rant a tad.  Cheesy

Marvel is setting themselves up heavily in banking on the youth and new readers right now. No matter how I feel about it, I do see their thinking process here.

Comic sales from us older folks have not been growing at all, really, and in-fact have been going down as we, the elders  Cheesy, do one of two things. We either get tired of the "big two hero universes" and head totally or partially to other publishers or we just drop comics all together. Of course I guess the third option could be we just die off.
 Cheesy

Marvel is actually doing a very smart thing trying to get (appease/suck up to) younger and more diverse audiences. They need to.

There have basically been four explosions of comic readers in the long history of comics; The War age which brought young readers into the fight with the evil, vile Nazi's, DC in the mid 50's bringing forth the Silver Age with their powerful new versions of their heroes which brought so many new readers once again into the fold, Marvel's Bronze Age (where I came in  Wink) which sent yet another massive wave of new readers to the spinner racks weekly and lastly the desperate 90's which as horrible as some of us feel that time was  Wink, it clearly produced a cornucopia of new readers as well. Sadly, we just have not had an influx of new readers since. Sure the occasional new reader will jump into our little bubble, but as far as a huge amount of new readers ... it's been a long time.

Sure cost and other things to catch our eye is a factor, but still.

Marvel is pissing a lot of people off, heck I am one of them at times, but I also see what they are trying to do. Marvel comics, by in large (there are still some great books out there), are just not for me right now. I am not the reader they are trying to make happy. That is fine, I get it. But what irks me more than the fact I am not their focal point right now (how dare they Wink) as they attempt to pull in new readers by changing their heroes to appeal to that wider audience, they are rapidly pushing aside the readers that once raised them up. Even though I understand why.

And hey, I love the new Thor I love the new person pretending to be Thor  Wink, but damn, like I was saying awhile back, I miss MY Thor. But in the end I have enough DC, Dark Horse, Image and Valiant to read anyway. I will be okay. Go get them young ones!!!
(But give me back my Thor, Iron Man and Cap)

I believe I've even commented as such before. Also included in my response is "oh well, then I just don't spend my dollars. But I get it; I truly do. Doesn't mean I have to like it at all."

Now I know you're preaching to the choir. I know I've said this. I hate that I do feel this way, but that is just the way things are.

And there is more and more that I am finding to enjoy from Marvel. But, what I think I am enjoying the most are the nobody characters who are getting a new run of life because you can do what you want with them; you won't affect marketing/sales/toy lines/advertising (ie, Ant-Man, Vision, Spider-man 2099, Spider-woman, ANWolverine).The mainstays, when you veer so far with them, it's because you have to make that push to make it seem 'new' for the character before sliding them back to what they've always been.

IN this manner, I'm love Thor, and the Odinson, too. Wink
Spider-man does not trip my trigger. I just read an issue of ASM that saw Peter duck out of ALL his corporate boss responsibilities to go webswining. WTF, dude!! You can cost peoples' jobs! You could lose your industry! You f'ing idiot!! But Slott wont handle him like that.
Cap...I'm waiting on.
Hulk...Cho is fine, but I love the fact that no matter who else Hulks up or Hulks out, none can match the rage, fury, and destruction of a Banner Hulk out. So, I'm waiting. (but I believe and know that I REALLY have to wait a long time!)

But...will just have to wait until the next month to see if there is something else I wish to try. That's the optimism of comics!
