No it's not. Your point has pretty much been all along that it is a superior pick.

I haven't read either yet, but I do think Ares is a better choice for the group overall.

Plus Yoni is just being his general twattish self.


Indie, marvel, dc. Doesn't matter to me. I read the preview to FVZA and thought,"wow this is awesome." I read the preview to Ares and thought, "Great another piece of dark reign crap where Norman Osbourne talks about the fact that he runs the show and Ares is his right hand man."

I wonder what my last review group pick was??? Oh yes. Blackest Night from that indie publisher with no tie ins or overpriced variants.

No it isn't. Why? Because in the end Norman will still be a bad guy and not in power, that's what the siege is about and then the capture and then the double secret war invasion house. It's all been one long shit fest. Anytime Marvel does something interesting they take 10 steps backwards trying to figure it out how to stretch it out to something just as breaking. Secret War was pretty good but the invasion was dumb. Planet Hulk was great, world war hulk was awesome till the last issue and now hulk is...And the perfect lead into all this. Ellis's thunderbolts...Genius. Lets take the idea and run it into the ground with Dark Avengers.

So you're judging a story based on your possibly wrong predictions? Huh?

Just because Siege might reverse Dark Reign doesn't mean you can't enjoy a well told Ares mini-series set within Dark Reign. That's 3 months in the future, and has no bearing on this mini.

Dude, do you read all of a post or just skim it before you start to argue with it?
