    That's a pretty big reach

    Ok, I could buy just about everything, but the Watcher wanting to commit suicide by cop? WHY?!?!?!? He couldn't face living life as a one eyed Watcher!?!?! That just sounds so stupid!

    Also, the Avengers just left Thor on the Moon?

    Seriously? Wow, great group of friends and allies you got there Odinson!!!

    Sorry, but these two events are just a little too difficult to accept.

    I doubt that's the direction Marvel is going to take with the character. Seems like they've solidified his new role to make way for Marcus Johnson.

    I'll no-prize it. They see how humans have an effect on Watchers. So they don't want to risk the humans corrupting another one of their own as humanity "corrupted" Uatu. They need to get justice for Uatu and decide to use a human, empower him, and make sure he can't do it anything to interfere and can do nothing but watch.Thus punishing the criminal and getting a measure of Watcher justice.

    Death is also different for the Watchers race. I think he could have still come back from all that damage. I like to know why he wanted to die. There's a story in that and it's to bad Original Sin didn't take advantage of that.

    Promoting Fury to being the new Watcher is a neat way to make way for MCU Fury to come in and is an original idea (Thoth he reasoning behind doing it so that the movies line up with the books is stupid..)

    Other than that though, there's really nothing about this issue I like. Was a convoluted mess.

    And the whole bloody stew comment from Steve Rogers was so completely wrong. I don't think anyone would refer to the remains of a dear old friend like this Mr. Aaron.

    That was the highlight of the series for me.

I hope it's reversed soon and all the Howling Commandos can reveal that they faked their deaths.

    And Panther was written like a real jerk just like in AvX. I guess Aaron really care too much for him.
    Yea gotta agree with the Fury and Black Panther parts. And has Black Panther always been written like such an entitled ass? I mean between this and this volume of New Avengers, I'm really getting to dislike how much of a secretive asshole he's become, especially towards an old friend like Cap.

    Ant Man Lang was there so this must still be in continuity with the FF series. Watcher was happy go lucky with a baby on the way. Now he wants to die. I also hope they explain.

    Yea, this was pretty weak. For suck a serious event (Original Sin, Watcher killed) we really don't come away wtih any legitiment reason for WHY all of this went down. I still don't know why Nick killed the Watcher. Did the Watcher see his own death? Was his death apart of some larger purpose for the earth? What the flip happend to Thor and why would everyone just leave him behind (I thought that party was pretty lame).

    All in all, this was a bad ending to what could have had major impact to Marvel. Good build up, weak ending. That seems to be Marvel's thing nowadays. A bunch of suspense with no payoff at the end. I bet we never find out what's really behind the Incursion either.

    Were they talking about the incursions? I thought they were talking about what Nick had been up to. All of this was a bit of a let down.

    He must have been trying to be gross or something, but it just doesn't read true.
