Around issue 3 I dropped it. :x

I liked issue 3, with Namor vs. Namor. But I dropped it after issue 4, deciding finally that the plot was moving just too slowly.

It's too bad, because it had its moments. The opening battle between Spidey and the T-bolts was cool and the Namor standoff was fun. But the Invaders and the Avengers miscommunicated too much with each other and just resprted to mindless violence. It got repetitive, fast.

Is it really on hiatus?

I was wondering what happened to it.

Joe Q said on his myspace thing that JMS was in demand after The Changeling was so successful, and he hasn't had time to work on it. I think he said Chris Weston was busy too.

The oldschool Vision is using the Cosmic Cube to rechange history so that the Germans have won WWII.

Its just really bad. Though, the original Human Torch in this was pretty cool. But over all, its just meh.

Based on your comment about the original Vision, I see another Timely character has been crapped on. :(

To make money. Alex Ross + mindless and meaningless story = fanboys going out any buying it. Meet Marvel's version of Justice.

I liked Justice. Part of why it worked was because it was set in it's own Universe. Avengers/Invaders was billed as being in Marvel 616. It looked like it was going to count for some thing.
