Secret Avengers #27 (SMASH HIS FEATURES FROM YOUR SKULL spoi

Postby Punchy » Fri May 25, 2012 1:38 pm

More space-bound fun with the Secret Avengers. This issue kind of puts the impending threat of the Phoenix on the back-burner, and instead focuses on the more immediate problem of the Krazy Kree and the ‘resurrected’ Captain Marvel. I found it interesting that Remender chose to use narration from Mar-Vell, is this an indication that he’s the real deal? I honestly have no idea whether or not he’s real, he could be, but then again I thought that the Skrull Captain Marvel was real too, so what do I know? I’ve been suckered before. It seems that the Kree are under mind-control from someone, even the Supreme Intelligence is being told what to say, who are these guys? They look like Kree, but they have big Leader-esque brains. Hmmm… I also liked that this issue focussed a bit on the character of Captain Britain, and how his powers are dependant on his belief in himself or whatever it is, hopefully by the end of this arc he’ll have his mojo back and will win the fight. But it’s hard to see him succeeding where Thor failed, that fight between Thor and Mar-Vell was really fucking awesome, how come the best fight so far in AvX was between two Avengers? Renato Guedes’ art looked more polished than last issue too, so overall this was a big win for this book, one of the best AvX tie-ins I’ve read so far, nice one. But still, is he real?

I'm disappointed with the direction this book has taken.

It's supposed to be about espionage and secrets, not Thor and Captain Marvel fighting in space...

You did notice that [AvX] is the only tie-in to Avengers Vs X-Men, hardly fleecing.

An issue of an ongoing series that ties-in to an event is different from a new mini-series.

Who said anything about a miniseries? Don't try to redefine the argument at this late date! :lol:

I think I said that back then.

How can Marvel be 'fleecing' me if the only AvX tie-ins I've read are in issues of titles I was already reading?

You're already an easy mark, that's almost beside the point, but you're not the only sheep in the pasture.

It's not beside the point.

I don't see why you're trying to start an argument over this, compared to most events, AvX is much less exploitative. Yes, there are tie-ins inside ongoing series, but Civil War, Secret Invasion, Infinite Crisis etc had those and a lot of other mini-series.

There's no argument to me at all. But I admire your zen koan line of reasoning is all. :wink:

First there are no tie-ins
Then there are tie-ins
Now there are no tie-ins

I am mystified by some of you. I thought this issue was fantastic. Shit, it's the best issue of anything I've ever read by Remender. Diff'rent strokes, I guess...
