    He's in the comic because Marvel think it will help sell comics.

    Personally i think its pointless having him there. He is nothing to do with the story, doesnt add anything to the team, and it doesnt look like the comic needed him to boost sales because it shipped a load.


Two issues out, and you already jumped to that conclusion? Quick to assume that he has nothing to do with the story.

And how do you know that his membership wasn't the cause of the increased sales? We have no way of knowing what the book would have sold if he wasn't included.


Two issues in and hes been almost entirely superfluous to the storyline, which is clearly going to be about Starlords unwillingness to accept his destiny. He hasnt added anything to it, he hasnt been needed, his appearence hasnt made the story more exciting, so he shouldnt be there as far as I'm concerned.

In addition to this its a bad thing because it leads to the Ironman character being confusingly spread thin and over exposed in exactly the same way as spider-man and Wolverine are, and more of that I could do without.

As for the sales, I am entirely sure that the huge #1 sales are as a result primarily of the popularity of Bendis and McNiven, and the much touted publicity about an upcoming movie.
