Am I the only one who is becoming increasingly irritated that fight sequences don't seem to be shown in a linear enough way to know..
who is fighting who
who is winning
what specific techniques/powers etc are causing the outcomes
it just looks like a mess with costumes a good chunk of the time.
The visual of fights used to have an ebb and flow that told you a lot about the personality of the combatants.
This issue and mighty/new avengers of the last year have been particularly egrigious offenders.
I know it is trying to depict the chaos of war but this isn't a documentary.
Clarity needs to be respected enough that the story is digestible.
This feels like a movie with over/poor use of the shoulder held camera technique.
Please explain why I am wrong or why you agree.
And this is one of the biggest problems I've head with Marvel in recent years. In an effort to be "contemporary" they slow the pacing down and bog each issue down with tedious dialogue and keep the action to a minimum. And when there is fighting it's just kind of brief and random. Punching and kicking but it doesn't seem like anyone's powers or abilities are relevant. I haven't seen a good, straight-up slugfest in a Marvel book in *years*. This is a problem.
