sherkahn: Monarch from the Venture Brothers (The Monarch)
[personal profile] sherkahn posting in [community profile] scans_daily
The preview for Siege #2 is up at CBR, and my how the words change what was implied. (I know, I am going over something I posted 2 weeks ago... but words help!)





Osborn is so F'ed! Ares has been there since day one and knows how he thinks and operates.

All those who want Ares to carry Osborn's head on a spike say "Aye"!

*edit* Link has been corrected. My bad.

You know, at this point, they have given far too many people a claim on Osborn's defeat. You cannot chop someone into small enough pieces to account for everyone who's earned one during his ascendancy.

Seriously. I've seen fanfic that's demonstrated better prior planning in its plotting than 99 percent of what Marvel puts out right now.

I actually like this because now that is ending, it seems like a contest to see who gets to be the one to do him in.

Spider-man? Iron Man? Songbird? Hawkeye? Nick Fury? Luke Cage? Namor? Doom? The X-Men? Ms Marvel?

IT CAN BE ANYONE and it'll all be good.

I just watch an online review of the Dark Avengers on Channel Awesome, and guy pointed out that Ares is the Worf of comic, always getting his butt handed to him to show how much a threat Osborn's team is facing.

YES, Ares now knows. Even though I know he won't get the kill shot, that doesn't stop me from hoping (Spidey's kinda lost the right to it, and the only other person I'd love to see knock Osborn on his ass is Songbird).

Oh it can't be Ares that dies.... unless... since Herc is dying too soon the two of them kick their Uncle's ass as they battle side by side (grudgingly and bickering the whole way) out of Hades.

Ok now that I think of it Ares can die, but only if he can come back. Because I like Ares.

That's...surprisingly good "god" dialogue from Bendis.

I find his take on Ares a bit interesting in this; the idea that Ares really respects Thor and Asgard like can be seen back in that FCBD special he did last year, where Ares and Thor addressed each other as "Lord Thor" and "Lord Ares" and acted very officially towards each other. Doesn't really have much basis in Ares' history, where he intrigued against Asgard plenty of times...but then, this whole version of Ares (from Oeming's 2006 miniseries to the present) is only loosely connected to the previous version, and is far better for it, because the original Lee/Kirby Ares was a total loser and a lame villain.

True, but the Greek god of war was pretty much the same jerk in the Iliad. Only people like the Spartans and Amazons who had him as a patron thought well of him.

I don't think respecting Asgard really means that Ares won't try to screw them over.

He's ARES. He likes a good fight. He'll respect those who fight well.

What do you think, gambling wise, the odds are that Osborn actually had contingency plans for his heavy hittters turning on him? Because that would actually be pretty cool since, unlike everything else about the past two series, nobdy would see that coming.

Also, nice crotch shot on that last page.

SIGH.

OK, Marvel...LOOK. Siege is off to a good start. Art is pretty, Story is, so far, satisfying. Things are HAPPENING. That's good....even if it's worrying that I fear we're going to get another punch-fest that drags out (see Secret Invasion, a 5 lb. story in a 20 lb. book).

But...here's the thing. Remember when every title in the MU had a Wolverine crossover? And then Wolverine was in like six titles a month, doing different things (yeah, I guess that's been the last 10 years, come to think of it). Well, could we TRY to not do that with EVERYONE NOW?

See, this is SO tightly plotted, it's not making sense. Consider:

Cap Reborn #6 just came out.

BUT....Cap and Bucky have already been in the last two issues of Iron Man, resurrecting him. In that one, Cap travels cross-country to get Dr. Strange, while Maria Hill hastily has to retreat with two critically injured characters to hide in a school basement. They do this not just because of an attack by Ghost...but because SIEGE #1 HAS JUST HAPPENED.

BUT...In New Avengers, Cap and Bucky have just seen their apartment building destroyed and are fighting the Hood's powered up goons.

BUT...in Siege, Cap is apparently sitting in a hotel room watching TV when the attack happens.

I'm just having a hard time chronologically making all these things mesh. How the hell does Maria Hill get to the point she's at in Siege when that's at direct odds with Iron Man? How does Cap and Bucky get everywhere?

And so on...and so forth. The Siege side-comic with the reporters makes it seem like Osborn is in total control of the media. But Iron Man makes it look like he's been publicly humiliated by them. And New Avengers makes it seem like he's got to be careful in his handling of them.

Do you see my problem, here? You've got TOO MANY chickens in the pot. Editorial is either not guiding with a strong enough hand or you're trying to do too much at one time and the seams are showing. I LIKE Siege so far, but it seems like you're trying to juggle a REALLY COMPLICATED time-table...and are failing.

I admit, I haven't been following siege/dark reign all that closely because christ, I hate norman osborne. (I've been happily sticking to X-Factor and Secret Six mostly)

but.. I did pick up the most recent couple of Dark X-Men. Anyone want to clue me in on where THAT falls into continuity with Siege and stuff? Because... I mean.. Nate Grey.. and.. and...
