This was an unusually long "Digimon" episode.

So we basically have a canon Megazord in the Marvel universe now?

Technically we've had one of those since 1979. Does no one remember Combatra

I thought it was one of those "licensed and doesn't count" deals, like Transformers?

So this was a crossover that

1) Came out on time (more or less?)
2) Didn't derail any book's ongoing stories
3) Introduced something new and positive to the Marvel Universe
4) Didn't feature heroes fighting each other
5) Drew heavily upon Marvel's pre-Marvel history
6) Treated itself with a sense of fun
7) Had an umambiguously happy ending

Can we officially call this the best crossover of the past decade of more?

I'll definitely be picking up the ongoing.

Kind of sad it didn't do better though. It was everything I wanted out of a crossover.

This lacked much of the publicity that those other events got.

A damn shame. This was light years better than Civil War II or I vs X. We really need to retire the "hero vs hero" crossover event for about a decade.

I think it might have been for the best. The more Marvel's higher-ups paid attention to it and didn't just consider it a filler event, the more chance it would have been screwed up.

Yeah, if editorial knew just how much fun this event was instead of misery and angst, it might have been cancelled.

Especially since the characters tend to forgive each other really easily after the events.

You're not wrong. By all rights, Tony and Carol (to use one of the most recent examples) should never be able to be in the same room together again, except for real "the world is going to die if we don't get every hero we can" together scenarios.

But when Tony comes back from being in a coma, I'm sure they'll have some big "conversation" and it might get brought up again every so often, but it's not going to be a major bone of contention.

In fairness, by this point if the writers bothered acknowledging these things, half the heroes present would never be able to be in the same room ever again, and it'd probably end up being like the Ultimate Universe: Massive world-ending disaster at the door, but the only person available is Lockjaw.

... no, wait, that's a bad example.

The only person available is Phone Ranger.

Yeah, Lockjaw would stand a pretty good chance of stopping whatever it was.

We really need to retire the "hero vs hero" crossover event PERIOD.

In general yes, but this one didn't make it worse the way the last few have.

Even before the Megazord moment, this series was worth it if only because Fireclaw was a not at all subtle rip off of Rath from Ben 10. RIP you glorious naked wrestling tiger monster.

So comics are stealing ideas back from Ben 10, that seems only fair, considering how many it nicked (Dial "H" for H.E.R.O obviously, and Upgrade being Warlock, etc...)

And it was a Marvel event! I didn't think it was possible to have those two things together these days.

I... think I'll get the trade of this.

Also seems to support my working hypothesis that the enjoyability of Marvel titles (especially events) is inversely proportional with the publicity they get.

Wait a minute...

Marvel ripped off Digimon, both Tamers and Xros!

And dear lord, the thought just came to me about how the heroes of Marvel would handle Jeri's breakdown...
