You did make a fine point, however. Anyone naive enough to believe this was not planned from the off deserves to be shafted by Marvel.
I won't be buying this at $4.00.
For popular titles such as Avengers, regular issues are $4, while extra-size issues are $5. I can see the pricing be set because they're not only going to sell, but to "cut back costs".
By the way, comics from such publishers as Boom, IDW and even some of Image's comics are $4. Maybe, just maybe, some of them might actually be better than some of the $3 titles.
