Where else are you posting, cause that sure doesn't happen here. DC is bashed WAY more than everyone's precious little Marvel/Disney Corporation. :roll:

I'm posting in the Review Group, which likes DC more.

And Disney cracks? It's only been 6 days!

This review group is much heavier in Marvel then DC. This whole site is! There are more discussion threads about Marvel features than DC by 10 to 1 at least. So don't go there.

Talk to the hand, pal.

You prefer DC, so there's one.

Maybe I'm still bitter about the heavy DC bias on Newsarama during Infinite Crisis, where I was the only one saying it wasn't that good.

Even though I was proven right in the long run, I still feel that most people are DCbags.

MrBlack wrote:I actually thought this was a little short in terms of exposition. Bendis has done a lot of the build up for this book in his other Avengers titles, which makes the decision to invade Asgard seem a bit rushed.

It's an interesting start, and the fact that it's only four issues is a pleasant change for an event book.

I thought it felt pretty rushed too. I kinda wished we'd gotten to see some reaction from the public about the attack at Soldier Field.

I felt like it just jumped right from the attack to Norman leading his guys into battle. You know House of M felt like it could have been six issues instead of eight but judging from this first issue it feels like this could maybe be six instead of four.

I'm ONE person. (Though I do look like I ate two or three other people).

You are right about Newsarama though, I always got the feeling they were DC biased as well. Can't argue with that.

And I actually liked Infinite Crisis for the most part. And compared to the train wreck that was final crisis, IC looks like War and Peace.

REALLY? He was always looking for a real fight over DC. His avatar was usually The Atom, IIRC.

I was always so sad I missed the thread he finally got banned for good in, because he was so blindly nasty most of the time anyway.
