But after enduring "Fall of the Hulks" (and other crap going on with the Hulk), Siege, Sentry, and the "extreme" dumbing down of the Marvel U being passed off as the Heroic Age, I'm going to walk away from Marvel (though I am picking up the Thanos Imperative).
I intend to stick around until the end of the Cap/Black Panther series, but after that, I'm done. Iron Man is okay, but I don't really see the point of sticking around after a few more issues.
I'm sorry. I tried to give the Marvel mainstream U a second chance, but it's just not working for me, especially after the garbage being passed off as "major events" (*cough*Siege*cough*Hulk stuff*cough*).
Really, I tried, but it's not working out.
I know how you feel. I walked away years ago around the time of Disassembled. Chuck Austen dumbed down the Avengers so Bendis could take over the team the way he wanted (I guess. Unless Austen is just a craptacular writer and did his own thing with the few issues given him) and I snorted with disgust when Hawkeye died about the dumbest death in comics.
Just a lot of crap going on all over the place, from the lame Hulk stuff to The Lizard eating his own kid, I am just really disillusioned with comics these days. Except for Atlas and Guardians of The Galaxy I give the rest of the MU (and most of the DCU) a pass.
