Siege #2 Preview

Marvel Comics – Siege #2

The blockbuster Marvel event of the year goes full-blown carnage and madness as the biggest and most brutal battle in Marvel’s history brings together heroes from all sides. Lines have been drawn, and an unlikely hero will save one Avenger, but they can’t save them all. The Siege has begun and it claims its first victim as AN AVENGER WILL DIE!!

It looks like Mike Deodato’s and Brian Michael Bendis’ wild ride through anti-heroics is over with Dark Avengers #12. From the beginning I was a champion of this title. Not only did it focus on villains and anti-heroes being forced to be public superheroes it also gave a new character like Daken a chance to be developed beyond Wolverine Jr. It also gave me my monthly Ares fix. The only problem I had with the title was the treatment of Noh Varr (Captain Marvel). Bendis made him do nothing. He shots a few magic creatures, had sex with Moonstone/Ms Marvel, and ran away. Hopefully having the spotlight shone on him in Dark Avengers Annual #1 will spark more interest in him and Marvel will finally do something with him besides continuing to be Captain Marvel Jr.

Here’s the blurb from Marvel:

The explosive smash hit series from Brian Bendis and Mike Deodato continues!! The Dark Avengers are pitted against a foe they cannot defeat: A man with the power over every molecule in the world! Norman can’t talk his way out of this one as the world gets turned upside down and no joke…someone dies. For reelz!!

I guess this means goodbye darkies – I think I will miss you most of all Ares.

I remember being so excited that there was a superhero game that allowed you to create your own characters and I immediate wanted to make my own. So I fired up my copy of Photoshop, open the male_alpha’s file and sighed. I had no clue how skinning worked and my dreams of Superman fighting Thor were starting to fade fast.
