vote from what you want, and u can vote for more then one...
 
I'm pretty happy with most of what I'm reading.

If anything...

-give PWJ more sense of direction and try a good year without involving it in any events,something I think really hurt the title

-keep Ellis/Deodato on Thunderbolts for another year

-get DD back on the rails,it's still a high quality book,but the bar has been raised so high that the current arc seems to really be dragging its feet in one big roundabout of Milla being endangered,Matt beating up thugs to track people down and villains rambling on

-keep the Secret Invasion tie ins at a low,I have no interest in the event and I'd like to enjoy the books I'm reading without interruption

-make sure Coipel gets some serious lead time on Thor

-at least try to get UWVSH out this year,with the WGA strike,I see no reason for Lindelof to be stalling

-more than 1 Guice drawn issue of Cap this year

-let the Knaufs tell there Iron Man story without bringing in new creative teams to boost sales or any silly tie ins

-more smashing in Incredible Herc and less Cho talking
 
- I'd like to see one Avengers title having Iron Man, the new Captian America, Thor, Spider-Man, Ms. Marvel, Hulk and others as members.

- The Knaufs are doing a great job with Iron Man, but I'd like to see Brubaker and McNiven as the creative team.

- End the Ultimate Marvel line, it's become irrelevant.

- Expand the Marvel MAX line. Make the Punisher feel more part of the Marvel Universe and add titles such as Wolverine, a Luke Cage ongoing, Thunderbolts, and Daredevil to the line.

- I'd like to see the Incredible Hulk, Invincible Iron Man, the Mighty Thor, and Captain America return to their original numbering like Avengers, the Amazing Spider-Man, and Fantastic Four were.

- Dan Slott on Fantastic Four. He's made for the Amazing Spider-Man and Fantastic Four.

- Dwayne McDuffie and Peter Pelletier, Reginald Hudlin sucks balls.

- Writers should be on no more than two books.
 
I hope the new Cap joins the avengers (one of them)
 
i voted for all and for other stop using photorealistic art
 
More Marvel Monster book on goings... :word: :word: :word:

:yay:
 
as much as i like the ultimate universe, i think they should scrap it and concentrate their resources in getting 616 back on track

and no major events for like 3 years, it isn't major if it comes round every three months...
 
i went with the franklin thing because its getting bad.
 
I voted for Franklin being his actual age. So many great story opportunities with a teenage son of the most famous family in the world. As long as they take the Invincible route and have him be all excited about the whole carrying on his family's legacy (also, give hims some manageable powers. Like in the MC2 universe where he's just a decent level telepath.) and not make him all emo and pout cuz he's famous and his mommy and daddy are never there or anything.

The problem with Franklin is it makes Sue look older; I think they like Sue at an ambiguous early 30s.
 
Pfft, she could pull off the underage ****e. :o
 
Have you seen some of the 40+ actresses around? Being over 40 doesn't instantly mean you're a haggard old battleaxe. Sue could look the way, say, Ringo drew her and be perfectly passable as a 30-something or a 40-something.

Besides, look at how old Dick Grayson is now. Do you really think Batman is portrayed as being in his 40s or 50s, given that Dick is now pushing 30 himself?

Age is pretty abstract in comics. There's basically just kids, adolescents, 20-somethings, and full-blown adults.
 
The quality is there IMO.You can pick up books like Thor,DD,Iron Fist,Cap,Iron Man,etc without having to read any event books.

So even though we're getting another Marvel event,there's no question IMO that the quality is ever present in many of there individual titles.
 
The questions were all vague and open-ended. Except for the comments about delays, all of those are mostly "Do you agree with my opinions?" and I kinda don't on most of them.

I think having events is fine, if they're done well. Annihilation and World War Hulk were both good, I thought. And Secret Invasion has good potential.

No, I think the biggest problem facing marvel is an unwillingness to break the mold. They need to realize that most people reading the mainstream comics they publish are in the 18-35 category now. The young kids read Marvel Age, and that's a fine way to bring them up on Spidey and Iron Man et. al, so that when they're old enough, they can move on to the more mainstream titles. In the meantime, people like us, in that 18-35 category, are having a hard time relating to Spider-Man now, because he's still portrayed as a college-age doofus. While much of his core audience is off getting married, having children, and getting a career, Spider-Man is forced to stagnate.

It isn't really a problem you see in other characters. It would seem...wrong...for Tony Stark to marry. Bucky / Cap is headed for a relationship with Natasha, fine. Daredevil is married and has a career. Cyclops might as well be married to Emma. And most of these characters are, at the very least, in their mid-30's. That includes the Fantastic Four, who get along fine with the whole marriage / kids thing.

So I think it's an unfounded fear that people will leave Spider-Man in droves if he's married and has a kid. If the story is told well, that's what will make people read.

Outside of Spider-Man, the only real criticism I have is that we aren't getting much time to establish a status quo before everything is upheaved again. Hulk, iron Man, Captain America, Avengers...just when things start to settle down, things are turned on their heads again.
 
I kind of like the fact that some of the characters don't age. It's based in fantasy and I dont like to age either so I can understand it.
 
Wouldn't they have to be on for a year in the first place for that to happen?:o :o :o :o :o :o :o

Well,a year,or 12 issues,was the original plan.I'm hoping for more than that,heck I'd even have Ellis stay on TB rather than moving onto the overrated AXM.

QFT.
 
-be on time, stop the excessive delays

-stop hiring tv/movie writers unless there contracted to meet deadlines

-other: tone down the big events
 
Hopefully both the New Avengers. If they have to be ****ed up by Bendis, they can at least be ****ed up on the nobler side.

Given Thor's last meetup with Tony it seems like it'd be hard to justify his joining up with the MAs.

But it's the Bendisverse so who knows?

problem with that is they make Reed look more and more like a creep and her more and more like anna nicole :csad:
