Seriously though, I’ve just read through Avengers Arena in its entirety in the past 24 hours, having avoided it until it was done to see what response was like by the end and, if I’m honest, because I at least partly shared the sensibilities of this very angry young man above (muh Mettle etc.). I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it, and thoroughly gratified by how well Hopeless replied the legions of complaints launched by the perpetually irate in every single issue.
I’ve just called my LCS and asked them to add Avengers Undercover to my pull, partly because I like some of the characters, partly because I was impressed by Hopeless’ handling of what I initially thought would be an awful idea, but largely because of what a personable chap he appeared to be from the letters columns of these books.
The one thing that really gets me about this letter in particular is how at my jobs I have people say this to me all the time, “I’m taking my business else where.” and then a week later they show back up.
I find it very hard to believe that Stef Campbell would stick to cancelling every single Marvel issue and then avoid buying anything Marvel after that. To me, that just felt like a silly empty threat.
Marvel Comics’ The Hood
Favorite Marvel villain. I still love his five issue dark reign series. I hope he comes back soon.
Huge fan of Avengers Arena, as I already know I will be a big fan of Avengers undercover.
The comic that got me even started into the marvel universe was the Runaways.
I found out about the Runaways and many of the other cast through Arena. I do like a select few issues/arcs of both Runaways and Academy. I can’t wait for Undercover, it’s going to be crazy.
I had this really weird dream that several cast members from Game of Thrones were put into an underground Hunger Games arena. It was like a giant cavern system that could be flooded.
They had to fight each other and during the fight Aang, the last airbender, ended up escaping the arena and being chased down by the capitol. It was a very weird dream.
Just went through all my comics and I took out a lot of different series that I either didn’t collect all of them, or I didn’t like the series. Made a lot of room in my boxes for series that I like a lot.
2 more days till I can pick up like several copies of Avengers Undercover issue 1. I’m so freaking excited to come back to, technically season 2 of Avengers Arena.
From the previews that I read, Hazmat was pretty cool. She totally shot down the guy that was bashing her…… Even though I 25% agreed with some of the things he said… But still she chewed him out.
And the Nico + Chase confrontation also has me interested.
I just need to read more of my Avengers Arena survivor characters.
