'I knew we weren’t doing a “Monsters Unleashed” tie-in, but I did want to bring back American Kaiju in some capacity, so I figured it might be fun to do the opposite of a tie-in – an entire crossover in one issue. That’s “Monsters N’ S.H.I.E.L.D.”, which has its own Alpha and Omega issue contained within the issue, and also runs through “Deadpool Into Fear” and “Hulk: King of the In-Crowd,” so make sure you have every issue of both of those incredibly long-running mags, or you’ll be completely lost.' -- Al Ewing

Kind of a throwback, isn't it? In a fun way.

It's a good thing General Maverick prevented Geraldo Rivera from discovering Al Capone's mystic tommy gun on live TV.

God I'm glad I'm not the only one thinking of that.

I'll board that train.

Of course Ross ninja'd Capone's vault. He had the greater mustache.

It says a lot about how weak Monsters Unleashed was that Ewing, a writer who's previously always been very game about tying into events, apparently took a look at it and went "nope."

Everything I've heard or scene suggests Monster Unleashed wasn't weak, but a very enjoyable crossover that just suffered from dreadful promotion.

Yeah, from what I read it was supposed to be a fun little interlude between CW II and Secret Empire, bringing a lot of the heroes back together (before they all got split apart again). But CW II ran so late it got eclipsed, and then all the Secret Empire buzz happened. I didn't like the one-shot crossovers much but the original mini was enjoyable.

I don't know, it wasn't profound or anything, but it was fairly contained and I don't recall anything in it offending me. Two things I can't say about most Marvel events.

And it had Elsa Bloodstone! She was the reason I picked it up.

Did Monsters Unleashed have any crossovers at all, actually? That's not a knock on it, that's a legitimate query.

Yeah, but they were all one-shots -- All-New X-Men, Avengers, Champions, Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy, Spider-Man/Deadpool, Totally Awesome Hulk and Uncanny Inhumans.

To be fair, the tie-ins for Monsters Unleashed were all #1.MU oneshots, none of which were worked on by their origin book's creative teams.

The pace US Avengers' progressing at, a tie-in couldn't get anything other than " .. they're here. Yeah. " done.

Glad somebody said it. Thanks, Deadpool.

I like how the daily bugle is using Mortal Kombat writing now.
