Avengers Forever rocked.

I used to have the TPB, but the binding on it was shit. I'll be picking up the OHC this week.

Avengers Forever is one of my all time favorites. Right up there with Korvac.

Plus, I hate 'Goliath' Hawkeye with a passion.


Funny as Clint never actually used the goliath powers in the series and picked up a bow and arrow pretty fast.

You sure you read it? :wink:

It is hands down, one of the best avengers stories of all time and showed how to use Kang/Immortus/avengers history, The first real appearance of the agents of atlas, skrulls, kree and the list goes on.

It was a fun story filled with many great moments and still holds up against any Bendis story to this day.

Yes. I've read it. And it's 'Goliath' era Hawkeye, with that hideous costume, regardless if he used a bow or not.

Kang's cool, Immortus' is kinda cool, 60s Avengers were cool, etc. I have no problem with the plot, but how the story was told. You'd have an issue of the Avengers bouncing around like clueless morons/cliffhanger/issue of Kang recapping his personal history to his boudoir/cliffhanger leading to an issue with some slight action/cliffhanger/issue of Immortus digging lint out of his navel/cliffhanger/wash/repeat/etc.

Worse shit ever.

That's not setting the bar terribly high, it's more like dropping the bar on the ground and stepping over it.

What?

If not liking comics that are the equivalent of watching paint dry makes me Twigg, then, so be it.

That's it, I'm changing the subject as we disagree completely on the book.

I love your avatar. Is it a good movie? strongest one yet or do you like some of the older stuff more?

Loved the movie. It's not as strong as his older stuff, and it's definitely geared more to kids, but it has his loving attention to detail. It's as beautiful as anything he's ever done.










Oh, and Avenger's Forever sucks. :P
