    Quote:
    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'm actually optimistic about this. For far too long the X-Men have been too separate from the Avengers. I'd personally like to see a bit more joining of the MU. Lets see how Havok and Thor would interact. I'm hoping it doesn't stop there. Would Gambit and Hawkeye be friends? How about Dazzler and Daredevil? Cecilia Reyes and Doctor Strange?
