New Avengers 22: It goes the only way it could (spoilers)

Postby ElijahSnowFan » Wed Aug 06, 2014 11:04 am

We all know the drill: I don't/won't spoil on the day of release, but others might. So beware! You've been warned!

But, in general: Really, this issue pretty much was what you expected, if you've read both Avengers and New Avengers, recent Marvel history dating back from the creation of the Illuminati through Planet Hulk/World War Hulk to now.

It went the only way it could, after the last issue. And once you read it, you can get a pretty good idea how "Time Runs Out" is going to be structured, at least at the start.

I think Hickman played fair with the characters, as they've been portrayed for years now. It's been interesting reading the thread for NA 21 -- I've enjoyed the debates, and I've read all the posts -- and, again, I think it's fine that Hickman didn't let the characters off the hook.

Certainly, we can debate how they got there, in the respect of how the comics industry got them there. But this issue...it's a subtle little issue, in a few ways. There is definitely fodder for creators to mine in years to come, should the Marvel Universe remain relatively intact after "Time Runs Out."

ohhhhhh yeah, this was the shit. i forgive the 5-6 issue bump in the road this title took around Infinity, this current arc has been dynamite, and this my have been the best issue of this book yet. all the Panther/Namor stuff that's been building since Avengers vs. X-Men finally hit critical mass, and it was awesome. can't wait to see what the future holds for the Illuminati and these individual characters coming out of this.

It was kinda cartoony (odd, given the subject matter).

And one person practically became a supervillain.

He acted like a king!

Hickman better come through with the confrontation between Namor and T'Challa after a build up like this.

As I said, with the last issue, Namor has been a villain(hard core) for the last 10-15 years and he is one here. no real surprises here.

Yeah, he flooded New York with a tsunami early in his history for crying out loud. It's not like this should be a shock.

Namor's not evil, he has an oxygen imbalance that causes manic-depressive mood swings

After this issue, Namor is a dead man walking.

It's only a matter of time.

I think, much like his FF run, Doom is Hickman's big card to be played late in the run.

That dinner in Latveria with Reed and Dr. Strange is still one of my favorite parts of this storyline.
