Secret Avengers #24 (As in Camelot? Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Mon Apr 02, 2012 1:01 pm

Hmph, after spending most of my time last month talking about how I’m actually kind of glad that Ant-Man is dead, it turns out he wasn’t dead after all! I don’t know how that makes me feel, conflicted for sure. This issue continued in it’s old-school, golden-age JSA split the team up into little groups groove, with several cool moments. I liked Captain Britain arguing with Human Torch, it’s always good to have a sceptic come up against something he doesn’t believe in, especially when said sceptic is a robot. I was surprised to see Captain Britain shout ‘bollocks!’, maybe Marvel didn’t realise how rude it is. You certainly wouldn’t get it pre-watershed. One thing I find interesting here is that Remender is kind of secretly setting up links between his Marvel books. Yes there’s the obvious stuff like Venom joining the team and Captain Britain showing up in X-Force, but there’s more to it than that. The ‘Father’ here showed up in last month’s X-Force and there was a whole arc dedicated to Deathloks in that series early on. Is he building up to some mega Remend-event? Or maybe it’s just a coincidence and he just really likes Deathlok. Who knows?

Meh he's just uninteresting. I couldnt careless about his whole "defender of the multiverse" thing. Now Union Jack he's interesting, I'd read a book with him.

I'm glad that Eric O'Grady is still alive, I kind of like that character.

I also have to say that I like the culture of the Core that Remender has created. It's a cool setting with a lot of story potential.

Yeah, I am getting that vibe too. The thing I really like about Remender is his respect for continuity of the characters*. His recent contiguity (yes, this is the word I meant) of his books has been awesome, but then again it could be coming from strong editorial direction.
[Reveal] Spoiler: Click to Expand
Deathlok also appears in Wolvie & X-Babies (not his book) questioning the future of the Genesis from the UXF Dark Angel.


I think it was in UXF that he has the characters comment on how they can be a part of so many teams; an obvious slight to the fact that you have characters concurrently on a mission while on the moon in another book.

I dunno, maybe he is positioning himself for an editor job.
