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.


It's not that I disapprove or don't hope this is a successful venture for Marvel, I just am not really interested in a whole new Marvel, because I like the old one, and the Nu one that Bendis and company created.

The comice are way too expensive for me anymore. I was so excited about AVX that I foresee following it to the end, but after that this is a nice opportunity for me to get off the train while I still can.
