cyberghostface: (Mr. Vengeance)

While I think he's stretched too thin at the moment at his peak Bendis delivered some of my favorite comics. His run on Daredevil is probably one of my all time favorites and his work with Bagley on Ultimate Spider-Man is in my opinion one of the definitive runs for the character.

It's hard to find one definitive moment but here's one that I think that shows his knack for dialogue, plotting and humor.

(Triggers: multiple mentions of suicide, with a character actually being encouraged to kill himself and wanting to die. He doesn't, for what that's worth. Also trigger warnings for imprisonment involving prolonged sensory deprivation and starvation--while those things aren't among the trigger tags, I can certainly imagine how they could be triggers for anybody having gone through certain ordeals. Finally, there is some dialogue here which could potentially bring back memories of child abuse.)

One page from Captain America #367, two pages from a five page backup story in Captain America #369 and seven pages from Captain America #370.

Scans have already been posted of Magneto vs. the Red Skull (or to be more accurate, Magneto hunting the Skull while having to deal with every obstacle and distraction the latter can throw at him). The links to those images seem to be broken, and I thought of posting new images, but decided to play it safe and wait until I got the okay from a mod here. For now, I will just post what happened afterwards.

To briefly recap: after meeting the Red Skull, Magneto wants to know if he's the same Skull who was with the Nazis in World War Two, which the Skull admits. Even though the Skull didn't actually run the death camps, he still willingly served Hitler and Magneto wants to know what he has to say for himself. The Skull stalls by giving him a "We're not really so different" speech, since both of them want to see their respective "master race" inherit the Earth, before trying to kill him. Long story short, it doesn't work, the Skull tries to get away but fails, and the issue ends with this page:

"That's what I like about the whole 'Original Sin' concept, overall, and this is what sold me on it. It could have been a very cynical 'look at what jerks our heroes can be' journey into darkness, but it was never positioned that way by Marvel editorial. In fact, it creates situations where all the characters across the Marvel line have to step up, because that's what they do." -- Mark Waid

"It's very much a classic Marvel story in the set-up, that it looks at the phrase 'superhuman' and underlines the human." -- Kieron Gillen

"I really do just dive down inside myself and connect [to characters I write] however I can. With Banner, I see a guy who claims he's driven by all the right things but, secretly, knows that some of his momentum comes from darker places he doesn't want to address — places like jealousy, regret, fear of never leaving a mark. And he's come to find that it's all self-sabotaging nonsense." -- Mark Waid
