  1. Cool. I might actually be able to start reading Spidey again. I gave up on this run during the arc where they killed Kamala off (I was fine with her dying, the story was just stupid). The run has been complete garbage. Definitely time for a fresh start.
  2. Probably a bunch of generic new characters that they want to build up for the movies.
  3. A (mostly) classic Avengers squad! Nice. Is this an ongoing book or a mini-series? And, can Hawkeye have his damn mask back, already?
  4. Holy crap. They're giving us "Pryde of the X-Men" era costumes! This is freaking awesome.
  5. Easily the best Danvers figure they've ever put on shelves. Now let her take this costume back in the comics, and I'll be thrilled.
  6. Very surprised to see Julia Carpenter (Spider-Woman) included here. She's widely ignored as a character. The Madame Web movie did NOT help matters for her. I'd love to see her take a more active role as either a solo character, or as an Avenger again. Her stint as Madame Web frankly sucks. Let her be a Spider-Woman again.
  7. This is the problem I have with the current Marvel landscape. All of the books feel incredibly boring and uninspired. The majority of the artwork (which is a HUGE part of this hobby for me) varies between mediocre and terrible. This may not be a popular opinion, but I miss the Dark Reign era. I miss Bendis. Say what you will about him, but Marvel Comics were NEVER boring when he was in charge of the Avengers franchise. The writers and artists were firing on all cylinders during this era, and the next Wednesday couldn't come quick enough. Every event from Avengers Disassembled, right up till Age of Ultron kept you on the edge of your seat. It really was a golden era. Everything since then has fallen flat. Marvel just feels like a shell of its former self.
  8. Okay, here's what I want: Avengers '98. Same animation as we have here, but with a series based on the Busiek/Perez Avengers run. I want the same costumes as we got during that run. I wanna see a lineup consisting of Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Vision, Scarlet Witch, Hawkeye, Wonder Man, and Ms. Marvel (the REAL one). They could absolutely do it, if they wanted to. And the ratings would probably go through the roof. They could top Avengers: EMH, if they made the effort.
  9. I guess congrats are in order to the eight people worldwide who actually plan on buying one...
  10. I'm actually REALLY annoyed, here. This should have been a Force Works wave. I guess I'm never getting my Century figure, because this was the ONLY way it was ever going to happen.
  11. When the FF and Avengers were off in space during the Empyre event, Spidey, Logan and the FF kids temporarily took over.
  12. I hated Hydra Cap. Didn't like the costume. Didn't like Secret Empire. Didn't like Cap being evil. Now, with that era being over, I can appreciate it more. That Cap figure is a must-have.
  13. Very welcome surprise. Didn't expect these books to ever see the light of day again. Hopefully this leads to new collaborations between DC and Marvel. I'd kill to see a JLA/Avengers sequel. Bonus points if it's actually canon.
  14. If that means we could possibly see a wave based on 90's Iron Man/Force Works, I'd go crazy. I can't even express how much I need a Force Works U.S.Agent and Century figure in my life.
  15. What the hell happened to Marvel? Their 90's animation was great. Is there some kind of mandate stating that all of their current animation must look like #$##? Their last decent animation products were Avengers: EMH and Wolverine & The X-Men. Everything that's come after has looked like ass. Even DC still does decent animation. What If's animation looks like vomit. I miss the old days.
  16. I'm sorry, but, no. If she was as popular as they want us to believe she is, she would be able to sustain her own ongoing book. She can't. That's why they've resorted to the mini-series model with Kamala. If it's a planned five-issue run, it can't be cancelled the way it could if it were an ongoing series, and that way they don't have to worry about losing face, or admitting that the character isn't as popular as they're telling us she is.
  17. Now that she's a mutant, I wish they'd forget about her and let her fade into the background, like Pixie, or Beak. She's obviously not interesting enough to support her own ongoing series, so why do they feel the need to push her so hard towards the readers? Having the publishers running around screaming "She's popular! She's popular!" doesn't actually make her popular. It's kinda like when a Facebook group I used to frequent tried to make Darkhawk popular a couple years back. They pushed so hard that they were actually able to ironically drive up the price of his #1 from the early 90's, at least temporarily.
  18. I really hope not. Her role as Madame Web has been such a complete waste. It's always the same damn thing. She shows up, delivers an ominous message to Peter about the 'Web of Life' being in danger. She then stands around and does NOTHING while the 374 other Spider-characters go off on a mission. She shows up at the end: "You saved the Web of Life! Good job!". Rinse and repeat. She was SO much more interesting as an Avenger/Force Works character. So, I really hope you're wrong. I'm thinking that they'll believe that the comic readers are going to want to see the original Madame Web, even if it means de-aging her, kinda like what they did with Agatha Harkness. This would free Julia up to be a Spider-Woman-type character again in the comics. Or, it could end up not even affecting the comics, as this is a non-MCU production. Who knows? I don't remember Venom, Morbius, etc. getting any extra buzz in the comics when their solo films came out. This could easily play out the same way.
  19. The ONLY reason I'm even kinda interested in this movie is because we're getting a live action Julia Carpenter Spider-Woman. She is one of my favorite characters, and she's been largely ignored in the comic books for several decades. It would be nice just this once if movie/comic book synergy actually worked out in my favor, and they gave Julia a more prominent role in the comics. I wish they'd bring the original Madame Web back, and let Julia go back to being Spider-Woman/Arachne. It would be great to see her as an Avenger again.
  20. Right? How the hell many times are they gonna re-release basic MCU figures like Iron Man and Spidey? They weren't that exciting the first time around, but THIS is just beyond redundant. Whatever, I stay away from MCU figures, anyway. They're just boring, watered down designs with ugly facial sculpts. It's like they're intentionally designed to be ugly. I'll take comic figures any day over MCU.
  21. But, lemme guess...they're gonna use the wings as an excuse to justify doubling the retail prices on Falcon-Cap and Angel...
