Favorite Comic Runs: Brian Michael Bendis' NEW AVENGERS or ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN?

Which Bendis run had the better debut storyline? Come cast your vote and speak your mind!

Brian Michael Bendis has earned quite a resume at Marvel. He's been a big part of universe altering events, tackled numerous team books and even has an iconic run with Daredevil. However, this week, we want to reflect on his debut story in 2005's NEW AVENGERS and 2000's ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN. One is an all-new team with a comedic and adventurous story. The other's a completely new take on a story we all know and adore (well, most of us adore). If you absolutely had to pick one, would you side with NEW AVENGERS' Breakout or ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN's Power and Responsibility? Think it through then head to the poll (the link is below -- seriously, you can't miss it) and vote. If you want to go the extra mile, you're more than encouraged to share your full thoughts with us. Why did you pick one story over the other? Did the art play a role in your vote? Get your elaboration on!

Voting is open until Friday morning (ET). That's plenty of time to think it through or even reread these two books, right? Once you've cast your vote, please be sure to jump into the comments and explain why a certain option on the poll earned your support. Make it awesome enough and we might highlight in Friday's update. Oh, and here's a very basic protip: if you think the poll isn't going the way it should, rallying support and making positive posts instead of just complaining will be way more effective in potentially changing the poll's outcome. Lastly, everyone say "you're awesome" to Comic Viner billy_batson. BB was the first person to correctly identify Friday's teaser for this match-up.

Friday's article will include:

  • The poll's results.
  • A "Viner Post of the Week" made for each selection.
  • Thoughts from the staff.
  • Other work we recommend by the writer.
  • A tease for next week's writer.
