    What the hell was that?

    Wow. Pretty art. Story. Damn. Never read an Avengers issue where everyone asked "who are you?" "who am i fighting?"  Have i ever read a oneshot that was to be continued elsewhere, thus defeating the purpose of a oneshot. Have I ever read a comic where someone did something for no reason at all and then left.
    Oh wait i have.  Rant over.  
    New Avengers Annual #1 raised more questions than answers .First of which is; What the fuck happend to WonderMan, he needs a hug. His hard core fans are gonna be pissed. Nothing like starting a story off with someone suddenly whining about everything.  Then i must recruit others who see my point of view. Sound familiar yet. Please oh please tell me Bendis wrote this as a cheap but funny shot at "Cry For Justice" And the Revengers? Guess the Random Team Name Generator was broken that day. 
    Im all for using the D- List characters. But make them rise above themselves and be impressive. Not whine and act like D-Listers.  
    And having every character ask everyone else during the fight "who am i fighting?" and Spiderman suddenly forgetting who Anti-Venom was? Its not like theyve ever been in a book together?
    But the art. Damn good. But full of clusterfucks. B-.  Nice panels some pages. Then others you kinda get lost in how busy they are.
    Once again the idea of a pro active crime fighting comic book team falls flat. Read Uncanny X-Force or old Stormwatch people. Thats how its done.

      Simon's revengers! 0

      New Avengers Annual #1 I see a lot of negativity towards this comic, judging by the user rating and that review down there but I surprisingly enjoyed this issue a little. I remember reading previous issues of Avengers and Simon has been having this huge problem with the idea of this team. He's seen bad things that have happened because of the Avengers and he wants it to end. So he decides to create a team of his own called the Revengers which I didn't really know any of the members on that team!...

      No one likes a hipocrite and that's exactly what Simon Willians has become: used to be a star (at least in Hollywood), he has never been more than a supporting role member of the Avengers (please don't misread or misunderstand my words, I'm saying that he was never a leading role material in the Avengers, even when he was in the West Coast or had his own title, and I'M NOT SAYING THAT HE ISN'T ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL BEINGS IN EARTH, ok?), so after a long time in oblivion (since Disassembled) S...
