Cap died at the end of Civil War, then there was WWH, and then Norman rose to power post SI. That was roughly 2 years, out time. Look at how much happened over the year Cap was dead, so Norman has probably only been in power a month, or so.

Cap died after Civil War at around the same time Norman took over the Thunderbolts. I would guess Secret Invasion probably took place 6-8 months after that.

WWH is however long it took after CW to build Camp Hammond and for the first class from The Initiative to almost complete basic training.

Media has evolved, but I don't see how that would help bring Norman down, are they going to Twitter him to death?

Norman has managed to control any media problems, he diffused Clint Barton's accusations, he got rid of security footage showing him as the Goblin slaughtering people, and painted Doc Samson as a bad guy.

He is smart, and it'll take more than a few youtube clips to topple him.


I'm sorry you have such a low opinion of Ben Urich's investigative prowess! :)

Sorry, this comic book was so silly.

"I am the lord of all things made by men who would make you not." Dialog like that sure didn't help any, either.

the first time in a while I was interested in an issue being reviewed enough to want to read other people's thoughts about it.

Speaking of gods, what the heck happened to Hera's face?

And what happened to Ares' son that his mommy brought him a note, anyway?

I know, but what injured him so badly? Or is it a trap?

(If you know, put it in spoilers for the trade-waiters)
