I mean given the last two marvel events sucked out loud, does anyone expect anything better out of Age of Ultron?  From what I understand, this is going to be a Bendis solo project, unlike Fear Itself and A vs X which had too many chefs.  Do you think that will matter?  Was it the massive clusterfuck of writers that ruined FI & AvsX or was it the heavy hands of the editors making their way to the pages that did those series' in?

If Wolverine dies in it, as rumored, people will buy it

Anything would be better than AvsX.  A point of clarification though....Fear Itself was Matt Fraction's work, and not a collective of writers for the main series.  I think it was Fraction's first event.  FWIW, I thought Fear Itself was rather lackluster.  Not "bad" but not really "good" either.  It was disappointing because Fraction is a solid writer and he's killing it on Hawkeye right now.

Anyhoo, I guess it comes down to if you like Bendis.  I'm willing to give it a shot for that reason.  It should be consistently written at least.

...and disbeliever is right.  Fans buy events, and that's why DC and Marvel have them.

I can only speak for myself, but Marvels crossovers have always sucked. And i've got money that says this turns out worse than A vs X.
Also,while Bendis writes a good Avengers book,he's not who i would put in charge of Logans death.
We all know who should write that.
Besides, The Avengers without the Cage/Spiderman/Wolverine/Jess Dialog just isn't worth reading,and Jess and Cage quit the team. Who's gonna spar with Spidey if Logan dies?

I actually didn't mind Fear Itself

Maybe in hindsight it's because AvX was so terrible that FI looked good in retrospect. But I liked it. And Thor bitching out Thing and Hulk was rad.

I'm a huge Moon Knight fan, he'll be playing a big role in it, so I'm pretty excited.

I liked FI well enough, but it wasn't as good as Seige or Dark Reign. NOTHING could ever be as bad as AvX. NOTHING.

All crossovers are dead to me. AvX was the final nail in the coffin.

Is that the payoff to that teaser issue of Avengers they did a couple years ago where they had to go into the future to battle Ultron because Ultron had "won"? Or wait, didn't they already do that, and it turned out some other villain was all behind it? I are confuzed.

Big summer crossovers are generally shitty moneygrabs until proven otherwise.

Fear itself was worth it just for Uru-Man and Franklin showing just how insanely powerful he really is.

I don't think anything could be worse than AvX, although I believe that if DC put their minds to it they could probably take that distinction.

I agreed wholeheartedly that AvX was horrible. But I thought FI was actually pretty good. The whole Loki arc was excellent. I also liked Seige, and Civil War before it. No crossover is perfect. But they aren't all as bad as AvX.

And despite how much we all hate the New 52, Flashpoint was actually really good too.

I just read book 1 of AofU. It wasn't bad, and it does look kinda interesting. I'm just going to stay away from tie ins. Phone Post

I refuse to purchase any big event books but it'd be cool if someone posted the arc.

Ok, that makes sense. I was wondering how this worked with anything going on in Hickman's books.
