AT, we go back a long way. We've been friends for so long. I'm gonna miss you now that you're going to kill yourself.

No idea what you're talking about man. I'm not dying anytime soon. :-D

I think the first few issues took way to long but they were written specifically for Hitch. Hitch is all about the big screen, big action books which is what the first 2 issues were. If you look at the Ultimates its the same thing but with more writing.

I agree that it's pretty obvious, given that you guys have been hacking away at this book every week. :P

Around here it's easier to keep track of the titles that aren't bitched about on a regular basis :lol:

The only way that is acceptable is if its some unwashed hobo screaming for the FF to kill themselves.

At $3.99 an issue, it really does matter.

Less writing, less story, less action, less character development, less plot, less sister banging, less everything.

I suppose, but I try not to take prices into account with my reviews, comics cost what they cost.

That's fair... but they also come out when they come out. 4-5 issues of filler before anything important happens does matter regardless of price, release schedule, or anything other than what happens in the comics.

What's also key is that BMB could take a dump on a page and Punchy would give it 4 stars.

I read this at the store again and I have to say that Hitch's art has gotten kinda sloppy in these past 2 issues.

Also, let me see if I have this straight; The Phoenix Force, which is a cosmic entity that is revered by some alien cultures as a god, is forced into Cyclops by Tony Stark's meddling. Cyclops uses the Phoenix to create a paradise, which the Avengers don't like because they didn't think of it first and begin to assault Cyclops and his team. During the battle which was brought about as a result, Cyclops is fully overtaken by the Phoenix and kills Xavier in the process. As a result, the entire Marvel Universe turns on Cyclops and brands him a mutant terrorist and a villain.

Wolverine takes it upon himself to go to the past and murder Hank Pym before he can even so much as think about creating the artificial intelligence that will one day become Ultron. Do you think that Wolverine will be ostracized or punished nearly as severely as Scott? :smt102

Aside from that, I will begrudgingly admit that this issue was a slight step up from the previous 4 issues. Stuff is actually starting to happen now.
