Marvel is backing itself into a corner. They have taken the everything changes mantra too far, and stretched some of their characters beyond visible recognition.

Doom as Iron Man. Prof. X, Wolverine, Cyclops, Jean Grey dead for a significant period of time. The entire line needs a cleansing.

But I at least have enjoyment from the fact that Nick Spencer looked at my Cap's Ethic's Threads and said ... you know what... what if we did make Cap a bad guy. And maybe...just maybe he's been a bad guy all long.

I once thought my greatest achievement was convincing Dan Slott to bring Cardiac back. But my greatest masterpiece is that the total corruption of Cap storyline has come into fruition.

My work is done.

Probably coming with Make Mine Marvel/Marvel Legacy, wherein Marvel goes for the flavor and success of DCU: Rebirth, but with the mea culpa.

<3 Cardiac. At least yours went well. When I got then-upcoming X-Writer Chuck Austen to use Abyss, well... you saw what happened.

Logan, Scott and Jean can stay dead tbh. Just take their shitty time displaced analogues with them.

I miss Xavier tho. (._. )

I would be less sore about them being dead if they didn't shove these replacements into the mix.

Like with Wolverine: X-23 as Wolverine, with the name and costume, is dumb enough - now we have Jimmy Hudson, and a Jimmy, Jean, Cyclops love triangle?

C'mon.

Logan's replacement should've been flatscan teen Amiko brandishing the Muramasa Blade. That's the kick ass Claremontian Wolverine II we really deserve.

Or else slutty manipulative Daken again. :3

I don't have monkey paw anymore, wasted it in other threads,
but I wish everyone at marvel were fired, especially alonso.
And no more brevoort and quesada

This is the longest regime we ever had.
People love to hate Shooter, but he was relatively short compared to the current regime.

QUOTE
With Marvel Comics’ Secret Empire, the forces of Hydra have taken over and, due to the villainous actions of the Red Skull, have manipulated Marvel’s greatest hero, Captain America, and forced him to adopt their cause," the statement to ABC News reads. "At Marvel, we want to assure all of our fans that we hear your concerns about aligning Captain America with Hydra and we politely ask you to allow the story to unfold before coming to any conclusion."

Marvel specifically cites fans' "passion" as what propells the publisher, and that "Captain America, will always be a cornerstone of the Marvel Universe who will stand up for what is right, and Secret Empire will be the biggest challenge Steve has ever faced."

"What you will see at the end of this journey is that his heart and soul - his core values, not his muscle or his shield - are what save the day against Hydra and will further prove that our heroes will always stand against oppression and show that good will always triumph over evil."

Secret Empire #1 comes out this Wednesday, with plans for the event to culminate in August.


No shit.

I posted about this on Facebook. Apparantly we've gotten to the point where Marvel now needs to tell its infantile readership that bad people will do bad things, things will look dicey for a while and that the heroes will ultimately beat the vilains.
