Some days you just have to take a break...

Would you believe me if I said that Mighty Avengers # 1 was so bad that it caused me to NOT blog for a few days? Because it did, for reasons including, but not limited to:

  1. Whatshisface isn't all that good unless he's drawing biggums and booties. His monsters are neat, but other than that, yawn!

  2. That new SHIELD Iron-Carrier. Ug meet Lee! Are they really trying to do that? First you have to ruin Spider-man's costume and now one of the most awesomest flying bases ever? Really, Mr. Stark? I imagine you signing on to SHIELD meant they had to change the colors on that bird logo to Gold and Red, huh.

  3. Bendis's hella lame use of thought balloons. Its like taking his "realistic" dialogue to the next level. Instead of having to read the spoken "ums...", "well, uhs...", and "(wows.)", I get to peer into the mind of Carol Danvers as she THINKS them! Shoot me now!

  4. Sultron 2.ooooooh...this gives me a weird feeling that sometime in the very near future I am going to be turned on by a female Egghead.

Its like they don't want me to buy comics sometimes!

Fortunately, the $3.99 price tag made me not want to buy this issue in the first place. When my friendly comic shop proprietor told me to turn to the last page to gauge my reaction, I realized that I had made the correct choice.

If it means anything, your pain has led to the name Sultron 2, which makes it worth it to me. Points would have been given for Slutron as well.

Sultron is indeed perfect.

*Sigh.*

Now I'm stuck with the image of a female Egghead in my head.

Thanks.

A female Egghead is probably better than a female Egg-Fu. Probably...

SULTRON!

Well done!

I must say, if we get a Michael Cho illustrated Egghead, that is going to be one SEXY egg...

Sir, I completely agree. Mighty Avengers #1 did not help the recent bout of sick I took on and continues to kick my hopes for ONE DECENT TEAM BOOK in the tuna fish.

For me, it was the catty comments between Ms. Marvel and Iron Man whist choosing people they are going to entrust their lives to. The Pyms were why you drank, Tony? REALLY?

Yikes.

God! If only I could blame my boozing on super-smart scientists that hit each other like Tony Stark did!
