The DC Reboot is turning me into a Marvel fan….

Sorry this is going to be a little short today, but can I say something, DC is turning to me into Marvel fan.

I have picked up a few series from them; Gambit, Hawkeye, Captain Marvel, and now Uncanny Avengers. And holy shit, I have never, in my fucking life been so jazzed off an issue one before.

I know that I haven’t talked about them really, because, too me, there is no reason to talk to about something that has a narrative issues when  it doesn’t. I have attacked shit of the set up with relationships, such as Bruce and Natalya (ick) to Clark and Diana (FUCK MY LIFE). To just shitty story telling, like what happened to Batman in JLI #11.

Which brings me to Uncanny Avengers. OMG, I love the shit out of this issue. They did what I feel DC couldn’t do in fucking 11 issues that Marvel did in one. What did Marvel do? It set up characters and their personalities, setting up the main villain and even setting up some sort of relationships between the characters, in one fucking issue. It’s good. I don’t know much about marvel, outside of the movies, and the X-Men cartoon, so I don’t know if there is a big difference between how these characters are acting now verse how they acted before it. But damn if it isn’t good. And I don’t want to give a spoiler away, but damn that was an ending that makes me can’t wait til next week.

In 11 issues, DC couldn’t do that with the Justice LEague. Don’t believe me, here is some food for though, which super hero am I describing:

It’s a man with Black hair, Blue eyes, and both his parents are dead. He is a superhero who has to keep his identity a secret to protect those around him from his enemies. And he is lonely.

Now was the Superman or Batman? You know what, I’m not sure either? Why? Because DC has just gone and decide to make all their character’s have one personality trait. So the trinity really isn’t there any more, because all three of them, Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman are just that. A one trick personality of Loneliness. They are all lonely, Lonely LONELY PEOPLE! DID YOU GET THEY THAT ARE LONELY?!?! BECAUSE THEY ARE LONELY!!! Which I ask why they fuck haven’t they killed themselves. They should drink some poison together and wait for the loneliness to eat them inside.

The trinity was something that made DC special. They had a great balance. They don’t now. They are a trinity made of Batman alone, and there is no balance to that. Lois and Clark’s relationship made their universe special.  Now they don’t have either of that. So what is the point I ask? I was picking up Superman because I wanted to see Lois and Clark get together. I wanted to see Clark grow a pair and ask Lois out himself, not starting to date her as Superman. But now, they flat out said that isn’t going to happen. So I stopped picking it up. I don’t like seeing Wonder Woman, a symbol of feminism, attached to the one man she has to play second banana too, so Justice League got dropped. That and I shouldn’t have found out by a fucking announcement but by good writing to put in into the comic.  What did they get replaced with?

Marvel Titles. MARVEL FUCKING TITLES. Why? Because they are interesting. Because they don’t treat women as object for their male characters. And I can get behind that.

If all the Marvel Now Titles are going to be like this, I can’t wait for them.

The Avengers Vs the Justice League

The Avengers Vs the Justice League

So one of the free comics I was the reprint of the first Avengers, and I decide to compare it to the first justice league. And about when I figured out that Marvel hates new readers for some reason, because not even three pages in do they have a freaking splash page that has 26 people who are joining up. Fucking 26 Characters and over half of them, I don’t know who they are. They aren’t named, just shown. WHO THE FUCK ARE THESE PEOPLE. I mean, Justice League, even if you had been living under a rock and didn’t know who Batman was, it told you. It was like, Hey, this is Batman, and he is fucking awesome. I’m not a big marvel fan, but I only recognize 7 of them that I am dead sure of. And when I read 1602 I got who everyone was. So it isn’t like I just don’t know them, it is really random. The first Justice League, we had just Batman and Green Lantern. And that was great. Why? Because we got to see the interact with each other and get a feel for their personalities. These are just random 26 people who I only completely sure of 7 of them. That is not good story telling, plain and simple. I guess the team was broken up before, which isn’t a big deal, but I feel like this should have been the team getting together for the first time. So they did give a little background on why the Avengers aren’t around any more, because of the civil war and a few other reason. But really, they are still working together for the most part, why do they need a team if it doesn’t work. Even when the team drops down to 7 the interactions are a little stale. And there is one thing I am confused about, because I though Captain America was setting up the team, and then one in the outfit and one in civie clothes? Can someone explain it. Did Captain America get split or something? They introduce the threat in this one, just like in Justice League, but they have more of a bang. I mean, Thor slaps him around like it is nothing. Beside the glowing egg thing, I don’t see what the threat is. In Justice league, it was the threat of not knowing. It add to the tension they were building. In Avengers….I am just not feeling the tension. It just isn’t there. Because I have no fucking clue what the glow egg does. And it makes it all about the Avengers children. Batman would not put up with this shit. Granted, his children, if he has more than just Damian would probably be as bat shit insane as he is. So there is that. So this is a team up, future saving story with Kids. And Character explosion. I mean, really, they only have 7 people join up after talking to 26 people. Why did we have to talk to 26 people, were over half said they would join. And the Hulk at the end is talking about how we will join.

Sorry for no scans again. Still can’t get it to work on this thing. Not much longer thou. And when I get the scanner working again I will scan stuff in.
