btw,immortal hulk is pretty damn good imo so far.the latest issue they did something with Sasquatch and I was like whoa.

Agreed. This is great stuff. Ewing is writing a genuinely creepy book and Bennett's art suits it perfectly.

Really?  Because it worked so well for the Avengers?  Because they need a reboot for the movie side?  Because recycled ideas work so well in general?

It'll be earth-shattering. It says so right there in the description. Nothing will ever be the same again. This is a major turning point......get one of the 45 variant covers from your local store now!

Anybody think there will be a new Squadron Supreme title spinning out of Avengers # 700?

Maybe a limited series. Ongoings for this type of team always crash and burn. To be honest, I'd rather see another Winter Guard -- even though I love classic Squadron Supreme.

I was quite surprised to see the Squadron turn up in Avengers #700, especially the "classic" Hyperion. What happened to the black and gold one pimped in Avengers by Hickman?
I wonder if this is some kind of Thunderbolts type schtick and they'll turn out to be impostors.

Anybody think there will be a new Squadron Supreme title spinning out of Avengers # 700?

I wish. But it needs to be someone like Kurt Busiek who can untangle the crap and just give us Roy Thomas Squadron.

Let's also hope the Winter Guard can stay together for more than an issue or two before someone disassembles them. I miss the old Vanguard and Red Guardian.

I think the Squadron Supreme is destined to be a new interpretation every story at this point.  With so much out there nothing ever stuck as definitive in the collective consciousness.

I agree Chooch. Vanguard should be in his gladiator outfit (as designed by Dave Cockrum) and Red Guardian should be called Red Guardian. There is no good reason for Vanguard to be in that getup.

I don't know why, but I'm hoping for at least a Squadron Supreme mini.  There's something really cool to me about 'knock-offs'.

Immortal Hulk is my favourite comic right now. Al Ewing is doing a great job!

Thanks for heads up. Didn't even realize that one-shot existed.

Is anyone reading anything really good from Marvel right now?  It's so hard to keep up with the pull lists from four universes (Marvel, IDW, DC, and Boom Power Rangers)

The new X-Titles have been readable except for Fallen Angels. Im trying so hard to care about the characters,  but I just don't.  The concept of Krokoa acting as a homebase is interesting but bringing everyone back from the dead really lowers the stakes and I've always enjoyed X-books much more with smaller casts. There are just too many characters that don't interest me.  Sadly Marvel makes it so you can't shrink your pull list because if you miss a critical issue and you are a few months behind you have to pay 10 times the cover price to catch up 2 months later. That really irritated me with the first appearance of Weapon H a while back.  I settled for a second printing. 

I'd really prefer if they put out half as many titles, but made them very high quality  and great stories that I was excited to get to. It would be easier to not miss issues. Make the universe matter and quit putting a character in 12 different titles on 9 different teams.

I hear you on the too many titles with characters all over the place.  I read via Marvel Unlimited so in theory I could read every comic they put out (albeit 6 months later), but I find I don't have the time or the willpower to do so.  It's sooooooooo much that inevitably much of it is sub-par.  For my part though, I just read House of X #1 and it has me excited for X-books again.

Nice. Be sure to read Powers of X also. There are a few memorable issues that I really enjoyed.  I will be sure not to spoil anything on here either.

Guardians of the Galaxy was added to my pull list for the last iteration (figured it had to be an improvement over Bendis and MCU versions). It was okay. With Nova joining, I decided to stay on for the rebooted reboot -- for a few issues.

I may try the new Spider-Woman series -- even though I'm pissed about the new costumes which makes her look like a Spider-Man groupie. Pathetic, Disney-Marvel!

The LCS that is most convenient to me only gets an issue or two over what is ordered by customers -- so there are many books I never see -- especially the new X-Men books. But the owner said that there are very few people subscribing to X-Men.

I've been ready to call it quits for some time, but I'm letting it happen organically. Once I'm no longer reading anything new -- that will be it. I'm still supporting collections of classic material, but there isn't much left at this point. I'm reading more paperpacks these days. I'm a big fan  of Harlan Corben.

I understand wanting to give up. I'm in so deep that I'm almost afraid to give it up.  What I mean by that is I'm afraid something stupid will happen that will make a back issue ridiculously overpriced for 5 years, so if I stop and want to pick it back up I'll be too discouraged to do so.  Avengers has been pretty boring, and I am about 9 issues behind on Ironman. I was fairly caught up on Fantastic Four and Thor, but then the "big" War of the Realms event happened that totally burned me out.  I have 2 short boxes full of comics released in the last 8 or 9 months or so that I am behind on.  The Carnage event burned me out too and I ca't seem to get excited about Venom anymore. I just got to Amazing Spider-Man 32 or so.  Life does get in the way, but the comics are getting so complicated at times that it gets hard to jump back in. I more so enjoy picking up a Marvel Masterworks collected edition and reading enjoyable old stories.
