New Avengers #17 (Uh, Timber Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Fri Oct 14, 2011 11:27 am

A fun action issue that sows plenty more seeds for the bubbling Norman Osborn/Dark Avengers plot. The New Avengers (and Iron Man) take down Ultimo, a giant robot, and it was a really cool fight, drawn brilliantly by Mike Deodato, I loved the two pages where he showed each individual Avenger in their own panel attacking Ultimo, and then the next page, being smashed by him. This was one of this issues where you just see the team fight something and banter a bit, and it was enjoyable as usual. But of course Ultimo was under the control of Norman Osborn, and was planning on stealing an Iron Man armour, I presume in order for Normie to become Iron Patriot once again. That fails, but then he does manage to get a sample of Wolverine’s DNA and blow up the Avengers. I just love how batshit Bendis’ Osborn is, ‘flay the skin from their bodies’ indeed.

these reviews for Bendis comics are so annoying to see in the forum because they usually include some stupid,ridiculous Bendis-speak as the title for the spoilers.

Except only one of us has made a thread for discussion, the other just moans about what other people do.

Backseat posting at it's finest.

Nope, just one of Tony Stark's factories.

If I may ask, exactly why the fuck does Stormin' Norman, who has his own healing factor which helped him survive being fucking impaled through the fucking heart by his own fucking glider, need to take Wolverine's DNA so he can copy his healing factor?

Dumb, Bendis...dumb.

This was terrible. The format still sucks, it was just a hair better than 16.1 which might be the worst Avenger comic I've ever read.

why would he need it for ANYBODY? he has his own DNA right there that they can sample, reverse-engineer, mass-produce, whatever. give his AIM/Hydra/HAMMER/whoever goons a couple loose strands from that magnificent coiff and let them go to town.

Yeah, but can you see Norman willingly giving people his DNA? He's probably pretty protective over it, thinks it's his god-given right or something.

Plus, Goblin-serum does have a tendency to drive people crazy...

i doubt Norman gives a shit about driving anybody else crazy. especially when he's in denial that it even turned him crazy.

Didn't it take him ages to recover from that?

Wolverine's instant healing > Goblin healing.
