Title: Savage Avengers
Post by: Perry on February 16, 2019, 09:18:57 AM
Yeah, I  ::) when I heard about THIS (https://www.marvel.com/articles/comics/conan-returns-to-the-marvel-universe-in-savage-avengers) and in-fact I am still  :o ... I mean are we going back to the 90's again? First with the variant cover ridiculousness and now this?

First of all only one person on that team could ever be considered an Avengers, and it damn sure aint Wolverine, no matter what Bendis and Marvel say. Just like when Cap gave Deadpool a membership  ::), Venom, Punisher, Electra and the aforementioned Wolverine being an Avenger just bugs me. Throw in Conan and I am really throwing my eyes down the hallway.

That said, I will still read this. Duggan and Deodato are a good team (the last Countdown arc notwithstanding) and yeah, I am kinda interested to see if I can read this and get a WHAT IF feeling out of it or if it will be soo out there that I can't take it.

We will see I guess.

Maybe this is what you felt in the 90s, Perry, but for me, stuff with Marvel, not all Marvel!, makes me feel like comics have passed me by, and that they simply aren't for me anymore.

It's not even all thematic elements either, sometimes I just look at what they do and think they are one dammed stupid entertainment business.

I hear ya. And I totally agree with you.

But then, at the same time (and please don't think I am defending this title  :-\) caped hero comics are, at the best of times, F'N stupid stuff. So a title like this that just blows my mind with its stupidity, shouldn't be something I/we are shocked by or loathed to, it is just a further extreme on a pretty damn extreme silly idea.

Again, I agree with you. I do, but talking to Dave at the LCS and he brought up that point and, well, I can see that side as well. If you are going to make wildly fascination stuff based on pretty ludicrous ideas, why not see how far you can go. It's like that stupid Hulk'Verine thing.
 :D

What the hell?

I saw on Bleeding Coll that DC was thought to be dropping their title output to a mere 22 titles. Dan Didio says that is bullshit, but could you image if DC, or Marvel, or even better both, did that? I think it would be awesome! Then, hopefully, you would have maybe only one or two titles that try to go this crazy ass extreme route.
 :D

Yes it's 2019! That has a nine in it! Lets bring back the 90's and be as extreme as we can be!!!

Cap offered DP a membership? Damn Iím out of it.

This Savage team sounds more like that Thunderbolts team they tried a few years back.
