Quote:WTH?!! Did I miss something?!!
Venom doesn't trust the Avengers can take him down so confirms the Thunderbolts can and then quits and runs off. Since the cancel of the 2nd last Secret Avengers run, Agent Venom's association/status with The Avengers has been tenuous at best - if not completely vague! Next we see Flash/Venom agreed to the Avengers suddenly shipping him off as their best new envoy choice and he's already a welcomed member on board faster than Iron Man was during his space vacation arc?!! (Not to mention this totally minimalizes the pitch of the new NOW Captain Marvel series premiere where Carol just was 'uniquely' given the honor as outer space resident-emissary for the Avengers. [Although, the last page promises to help explain things with our NEXT purchase.] It all happens this week in...
Agreed 100%! WTH?!
The solicitation for the Guardians of the Galaxy FCBD 2014 Edition promised an all-new story in which "the Guardians of the Galaxy welcome Venom and Captain Marvel to the team for the launch of a not-to-be-missed death-defying epic!" So, answers should become available in just under a week.
Quote:At least his connection with his father, J-Son, improved one iota... before he was sentenced to execution by him.
I don't know about you but I for one am VERY tired of all the time that Peter spends whining about what a bad guy his father is. It seems to me that the main reason why Peter is out there has more to do with him making trouble for J-Son than actually protecting Earth.
Another thing that bugs me about this Peter Quill is his belief that J-Son is only a "conniving warlord" who has been "building a galactic empire of blood" and absolutely refuses to consider J-Son's claim that he's been at war to protect the galaxy by preventing Thanos or the Skrulls or the Badoon from being in charge. As much as I may admire Peter's idealistic desire that everybody in the galaxy should be free to do whatever they want, this sort of idealism strikes me as very dangerously naÃ¯ve. As a long-time fan of the original GOTG, I am fully aware of just how dangerous the Badoon can (and will) be and if J-Son's "evil" activities are reducing their threat then I have no problem with him (as long as he stays away from Earth). In fact, one storyline that I would really like to see is Peter learning about the original Guardians' 31st Century future and finding out that the Badoon's rise to power started back when something happened to remove J-Son from the picture. Maybe it's just because of how much I dislike BMB's Star-Lord but I would REALLY like to read a story in which Peter Quill has to face the fact that J-Son was right all along.
