All that I have feared for so many years has now come to pass. That's why I quit. I began in the 70's with Avengers # 128. I expressed one fear, too many Avengers, in a letters page from the Busiek era. But at least the book still looked likeThe Avengers. Then "disassemble" came and all hell broke loose. I was also afraid the regular Marvel Universe would be "ultimatized". It was. Even Fury is going to be Afro-American, now (nothing against Afro-Americans, don't misunderstand me). And my long-standing fear that the Avengers would turn into the X-Men. We had a taste way back when they started sporting leather jackets with the Avengers logo. Now: Uncanny Avengers. They killed it for me. A fan from 40 years back. So long.

I agree with you in what has come and gone on Avengers since the Disassembled story line. I remember when the Ultimate's came out and how every body wondered if that was going to the "reboot" to the Marvel Universe. Every one was expecting that Crossover that would do it. And it never came. Now with the relaunch .... which will really only last til some new writer realizes that are close to #700 or something like that, remember Hero's Return. The whole Marvel Now! idea just looks awful IMO. It just looks like they are trying to mirror the books more to the films which is obviously "ultimatized". While the of Uncanny Avengers sound good to me since for years X books and Avengers almost seemed to be different universes and it would be a great idea to see the Avengers fight Stryfe, or Xmen fight Maelstrom. But in the end it will be the writers who will either make it interesting or just another dragged out post Dissembled story line.
