Issue #18 - “BOSS LEVEL” PART 5:
THE SEARING SERIES FINALE!
“THE SEARING SERIES FINALE!”
These three simple words sent shockwaves across tumblr and other blog sites, where suicidal depression is the happiest anyone is allowed to be, as writers, readers, and feel-ers were overcome with … some sort of positive energy as their long nightmare came to an end.
“WE DID IT!” one Cynthia Pickles wrote on her blog EverythingMattersAndNothingCares.com, “It took the work of thousands of feels, every single one of them mad, and hours of work to achieve this squee, but finally Marvel has heard us and aborted this evil book. “
“Leave the Avengers Academy alone” Screamed more than one Tim Minchin look a-like vloggers. “Why does Marvel want to hurt us anyways?”
Attention spans not being a requirement for tumblr membership (or high school graduation) mean that 99% of all bloggers didn’t read the rest of the solicitation:
AVENGERS ARENA ends here…but it’s also the launch pad for what comes next!
As for those of us who can read a complete thought before jumping to conclusions; well we are looking forward to next month’s announcement of Avengers Arena 2: Daycare Edition. That’ll show em.

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).
