    He'd been planning Secret Invasion since the beginning of his New Avengers run. That at least was obvious given all the conspiracy stuff that was going on early in the book before it got set aside...

    Why did it have to be Clint Barton at all? There are other characters that are much more willing to use lethal force and it's not like Clint had even been in the story for more than a few panels at...

    Civil War II was about as necessary as any other event.

    I was kinda rooting for it. Marquez's art was great and the opening few issues presented an interesting set up. The fact that precogs had...

    I'm sure that The Ultimates was just as much a selling point for studios. Clearly parts of Avengers 2012 is inspired by The Ultimates, it often felt like the movie was an Ultimates one but the...

    They've leaned into the classic characters because they literally didn't have the movie rights to Spider-Man and Wolverine. If they did I'm certain that they'd be part of the lineup...no scratch that...

    I think Bendis' New Avengers was necessary for it's time. I prefer the 'classic' Avengers but I do think Bendis' approach at the time was the shot in the arm the franchise needed to them on the big...

    I loved Hickman's Avengers but it should be said he didn't entirely stick the landing in many ways and he left a lot of dangling threads that no writer ever touched.

    Wasn't it said in early interviews for this series that Slott was looking to establish Ben a powerhouse again? At least it was rumored.
