What do you like about DARK REIGN??
« on: April 30, 2009, 10:26:12 pm »
There are many things that I like about this scenario. In no particular order.

1. Ares man crush on War Machine.
- This is a pleasantly surprising duo that could be paired together again and again.

2. Clint Barton assuming leadership of the New Avengers.
- I liked Cage but it seems Barton was born to lead this type of team. His brash attitude and knowledge of all things Avengers will be vital in this dark time.

3. The fact that we're getting closer to that "Magic versus Pantheon" Event/story/crossover.
- This thing has been hinted at since the end of Civil War by editors at Marvel (Breevort?)
- Secondly we're seeing all the teams involved with and tackling magical foes or just dealing with magic more so in general.

4.  Door number 1 and Door number two..
-  Door #1 was that door Barton wouldn't open in NA#26
-  Door # 2 was that door that Osborne opened scaring the hell out of DOOM!
-   I say door #1 b/c magic is coming to the fore in this story somehow and Wanda(more or less)/Barton are 'active' now.

5.  The Cabal and their backstabbing ways.
- Loki is going to dismantle this group by driving Osborn nuts.
- The fact that the X-men are going to get 'integrated' into the mainstream Marvel U.

6.  The Sentry
- Im thinking more and more that I read about him that hes really the Beyonder, Im more so convinced than before

7.  The concepts of perversion(Osborns TBs) vs. redemption(Zemo's TBs)
- Perversion not to mention the other 'Dark' teams.
- Also all the 'doppleganger' business reminds me of the infinity gems(where the hell are they?)
-I think the original TBs will be reconstituted, resulting in a 'Thunderbolts War'(Civil War 2?)

8. Who the hell is the UNSPOKEN?

9. Seeing Spideys reaction to all this.

Can't you tell I love discussing story lines?

Cage saying "Those are the #@$^&&#@ Thunderbolts!"

It has cut a bunch of comics from my pulls; last year I was spending high 20s to 30s 2 or 3 weeks a month, now my heavier weeks are in low 20s.

Truthfully, my favorite part will be the ending.

What I like most is I haven't spent Dime#1 on any books in this crossover series. 
Admittedly, I got really tempted when I saw the revelatiion that Wolverine has a son.

I'd have been interested if they had used his kid from the Jungle Adventure story.

1. I like the Panther's storyline, its sizzling to me. The book will never be the same. You know I always saw Wakanda as "the bat cave" but these stories are so good and there is so much potential and it will make it extra special when they go to America again.

2. I like seeing Tony Stark knocked on his culo. He had it coming.

3. I like seeing the status of the Marvel universe change. You literally don't know what will happen, the bad guys CAN win. I hate how in the DCU everyone worships superheroes (especially Superman whom I hate)

4. The Cabal, they are quite the bunch.

%. War Machine/Ares as was said

I love taking the idea of Thunderbolts to its logical extension.  Dress up like the BIGGEST heroes. 

Also the idea that centralized authority leads to great abuse.

Also that the villians biggest problems are each other.

I avoid buying Bendis written Avengers books like the plague so Dark Reign
hasn't affected my buying habits all that much.   

The Cabal one shot was surprisingly good. Especially Doom and Namor's stories.

The Hawkeye/Mockingbird reunion mini has been pretty good too.

I bought the Agents Of Atlas mini first time out, so I decided to give the ongoing a try.

The Iron Patriot Armor:

I ventured into the courtyard followed by 52 brothers bruised battered and scarred but hard.

I love Norman Osburn and how freaking insane he is and because of it how it is all going to fall down sooner or later.

The Sentry/Norman Osborne relationship is kinda cool.

They both have split personalties to they kind of bonded. Norman's in a unique position to understand and manipulate Sentry's illness.

When he sacrifices him to stop Le Fay, Norm's a little upset(..."sorry Bob").

And the look of UTTER FEAR on Norm's face when he sees/realizes that even
being disintergrated and stranded in the past only slows the Sentry down.

Its the look of a man who has bitten off way more than he can chew. :D

Agree with JLI Jesse........"the ending" will be the favored part.
