> ...seriously. Is it me, or are the revelations of SI completely underwhelming? Even reading a synopsis of a tie-in Avengers book leaves me under-impressed. I stopped reading SI after #2 and it's still boring me and leaving me cold just hearing about it. I don't find it very original or intriguing or enjoyable at all. In fact, I find it grating. and this is from someone who was originally looking forward to the story idea.

Between SI 1 and 2, and all the Avengers synopsis' i've read since SI started, this is all junk that could have been done in a one-shot.

Do you think you'd be appreciating the story more or registering a higher "wow" factor if you didn't spend the last few months digesting all the speculation and spoilers on these boards?

While I don't care for the writer and am not buying the series, I *do* have respect for his task of trying to keep things coherent, interesting, and unexpected in the environment of the internet where any potentially flimsy plot thread can be speculated to death and where any leaked info that *is* valid can derail the "reveal" at some critical juncture of a story.
