It's all just supposition, the pages we've seen don't actually show the character in question biting it. But of course, in a book who's whole premise is character's dying, it can't be much of a surprise can it?

Not until November or December I think, all of this reaction is before anyone has read the book.

The rage I feel for Avengers Arena grows steadily with each passing day


Avengers Arena: we are that kid on the playground who knocks over your blocks, hits you in the gut, and makes you eat dirt


AND AGAIN

radiation doesn’t work like that

IF THEY’RE ALPHA PARTICLES THIS IS THE SHIT THAT CAN BE BLOCKED BY A SHEET OF PAPER

i’m gonna piss on you hopeless because you are totally hopeless


This next one is from a guy called 'spacetwinks':

like seriously, marvel

if you’re trying to pick up fans from the hunger games, say, the teenage girl, or just generally the demographic of WOMEN, the growing abundance of female nerds who are just EAGER to hop over your shit since Avengers

you should have made an all new cast

this would not only have helped the story creatively in terms of ‘people don’t come in with expectations like OF COURSE X-23 IS GONNA OUTLIVE EVERYONE ELSE’, or pissing off old fanbases, it also gives you greater personal creative freedom on the story itself

but the key thing you didn’t think of

IT ALSO MEANT YOU COULD’VE LOADED IT WITH HANDSOME DUDES FOR PEOPLE TO GET ATTACHED TO

good characterization, good storytelling, all very important to sell the story itself, BUT SOME BLATANT PANDERING DOESN’T HURT YOU EITHER IN EXPANDING YOUR BASE

all those gifsets of captain america’s ass in the gym aren’t them admiring a dedication to a fitness regimen, holy balls

movies have learned to sell sexualization of dudes while retaining a male audience, you’ve gotta catch the fuck up, comics


I mean even if Academy didn’t have HUGE sales, the people who did like it liked it BECAUSE it had a cast of well-written POC, female, and queer heroes. Why would they think we want to seem them violently slaughtered in a Hunger Games rip-off?


Seriously, this book has become my dreading obsession


i think the worst thing about avengers arena is that no matter how much i don’t want to i will inevitably read it #fuCK You Marvel

I think people take everything too far, but I'd be lying if I wasn't I guess, disgusted would be the word I could use, when I heard about Avengers Arena. It's offensively pandering to devoted readers of several franchises.


I just settled for not reading it, rather than spending all my time complaining about it.

You give people what they want, but do so in a demeaning or insulting way.

Like offering all the drug addicts in the world a their fix of choice, but only if they can dig through this pile of elephant crap to get to it.

Feel free to disagree all you want, but I think that of all the ridiculous things comic fans bitch about, I don't think a series that potentially pisses all over several franchises with extremely loyal/devoted fans is THAT unreasonable.

I haven't read the book but anyone who reads Marvel Comics and complains about how radiation works can kindly fuck off.

Radiation in the Marvel Universe is pretty much magic and has been since the 60's.
