    From the Pulse with Cage running past a drug deal,.. coming back to stare in disbelief before clocking the criminals,
    To Spiderman Doing the Egghead world tour,
    To Joystick losing her shirt with The Squad Sinister showing up in Thunderbolts,
    To the Xmen facing what appears to be the Sentinals at less than full strength,
    To Exclaiber facing what appears to be the first group of Xmen,
    To the Universal power on a search for itself,...........


    Marvel has for the first time in a bit got me wanting more than the adventures of Squirrel Girl.

    (From me,... This is heavy praise.)

    Up to this point I was limping along enjoying the young, New, Avengers, Praising Slott,.. and sometimes Hudlin, and waiting patiently for the next Squirrel Girl Sighting.

    I asking for you guys to tighten it up a bit,.. make sense of a few inconsistancies,.. and keep this ball rolling.

    (Do I sound arrogant or a lil selfish for wanting?)

    You guys act like it's nothing but negativity around here. Hardly.

    Marvel has quite a few good books going on right now, and I see people toot their horns over them all the time here, me included. The problem is that their MAIN books are not real great, so you see a lot of people upset over them.

    People vent here. This is not a bad thing.

    Depends on how they vent.

    The lack of much constructive criticism round here and personal attacks on creators is a problem IMO.

    True, bashing Bendis is every thread is not venting...that's trolling. But w/e, I've given my two cents on the topic more than enough times.


    Varient, glad you're enjoying the MU again. :up:

    I see, so not liking something is trolling. Hmmm, okay.

    No, actually, trolling is busting into a thread and saying SOANDSO SUCKS!!! over and over.

    Criticising someone is coming into a thread and saying SOANDSO sucks because they got details wrong such as __________.

    No thats trolling also, when you crticise you should be criticising the story not "someone"..

    But to be honest i would settle for your definition which we don't see often enough (of course the concept of 'wrong' would probably be somewhat stretched no doubt).

    So criticizing the author of a story is trolling but criticizing the story isn't?

    Riiiiight.

    I think that you haven't been looking hard enough if you haven't seen any constructive criticism.

    I'm just not comfortable with being referred to as a troll if I'm not gushing praises about Marvel every moment.

    Funny thing is I don't particularly like Bendis. I just keep my criticism to either myself, or one thread where it's relevant. I swear, go look in all of the HoM threads and you'll find a ton of anti-Bendis remarks. Y'all have gone past critique, it's turned to insults now. How is that constructive?

    Brian, you among others have offered your criticism about Bendis and HoM on many occasions. Even my pal Muze has contributed constructive info about ways HoM could have been better and different. You two aren't the "trolliest" but I have actually seen "BENDIS SUCKS" or "BENDIS IS FAT AND JOEY Q'S SEXMATE" in threads before. That's the epitome of trolling. I guess my sig is too general of a statement then. And gushing praises to Marvel just makes one a fanboy. There needs to be some balance between Trolls and Fanboys.
