Hunger Game...er…Battle Royale..er…Avengers Arena Gets An Email Address

It was probably not the best idea for Dennis Hopeless to do this….

Avengers Arena writer, Dennis Hopeless, has received a lot of flak for his Avengers Arena, a new series pitting teenage heroes against each other in a Hunger Games type of setting, but not enough it seems as he has created an This email address is being protected from spambots.

Okay, I made an email address for the Avengers Arena letters column: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Make sure to say "okay to print."

Hundreds of Tumblr users are already hating on the series, a full two months before it hits stores, due to a preview image that shows X-23 attacking Hazmat, a supposedly popular character in the canceled Avengers Academy.  Fans have jumped to the conclusion that Hazmat will be killed by X-23, as every character ever shown in mortal danger in a preview page has always died.  But, an entire blog site devoted to hating Hopeless (and homoerotic images of Thor and Kid Loki) isn’t enough for Marvel’s newest masochistic writer, so he’s made it easier to communicate This email address is being protected from spambots.

The really bad part of this is the fact that nowhere in the tweet did he specify that the This email address is being protected from spambots.

Rather, you might want to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Of course, if you believe what Tumblr says, Hopeless is just a friendless, bitter man who looks to destroy what others love to fill the empty void in his heart. While we're not sure that's true, we do hope that Hopeless is able to read a positive This email address is being protected from spambots.

About the Author - GHERU


RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time.  RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage.  Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write.  RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them.  RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor.  You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
