Is Yong Avengers as Good as Kieron thinks it is?

Postby TimH » Fri Sep 13, 2013 7:08 pm

I've been reading Kieron Gillen's Young Avengers comic since issue #1 and keep waiting for it to be as good as he thinks it is.

I read the hip monthly solicitation caption, and read Kieron's hip front page caption, and the editor's hip letter column caption, and I read the hip story, yet--

Yet, it all seems so square. It's like that entire comic derives its self-worth from Loki's hip fake-Norse dialog, Wiccan and Hulkling's hip gayness, and Kate Bishop's hip heterosexuality.

I refuse to accept that I'm "just too old" to get this. It's a decent comic--funny at times, clever at times--but mostly dud lame. Ectoplasm Mom? Even Rowan and Martin's Laugh-Ins would have groaned.

I just don't understand. Maybe because when I was 13 - 23 I didn't particularly desire to see the Avengers battling my parents? (I would have felt the Avengers to have bigger things on their plate).

Maybe I just am too old to understand (???). :smt102 :smt017

No, it's smug, Tumblr-pandering wank. But you know, when you play the game of Loki, you win or you die (psst psst Game of Thrones reference!!!!!!!!!!!!)

And Young Avengers is also better than anything DC is publishing now (excluding Vertigo).

I don't mind Young Avengers. But it pales in comparison to Gillen's JiM, which was fantastic.

I have to say, its tripping itself up trying to be hip and cool, rather than just trying to be good. Its also saddled with some of the worst superhero names out side of the Legion. Come on, does anyone think Hulking or Wiccan are good names? Why not Hulk Lad and Rastafarian?
