    I give credit to superior spider-man, because this is the most ive enjoyed the character in years, but sadly Ive found the vast majority of spidey stories since the JMS years really quite dull - especially many of the big ones such as The Other, One More Day, The Gauntlet etc.

    Likewise with Wolvie, I'm not saying that his stuff has been terrible, but little of it has hit the heights - Old Man Logan perhaps, and I would agree that X-Force under Remender was a good series, bits of WATXM, the occasional arc of his solo series - but the vast majority of it has failed to ilicit much more than a shrug of the shoulders from me.

    Here he's a gimmick. I think we can both agree that he's there to up sales, but thats not good enough for me unless his presence electrifies the place and instantly convinces the reader of the reason and value of him being on the team.

    We shouldnt have to wait a half a year for that kind of impact - because lets face it, hes a big hitter and it is inevitable that his time on the team will be limited - so if he's going to be there then its got to really add something to the book right now.

    I'm reading the title for the original cast, so I'll continue to read it regardless of Stark, but at the moment I see Stark as something of a spare wheel - i'm not enjoying it, its not really adding anything, and think his presence is unecessary - the story doesnt seem to need him.

    I honestly cant recall hearing any whoops of joy either here or elsewhere that Stark was guesting on the team, can you?

I absolutley loved the series when Rich Rider Nova etc...was on the team. Amazing stories...but they havent beenthe same since he left imo. Kind of like a faded glory, and I was going to let the title go, before my memories turned from hey it was awsome!!! to eh, it's ok.

So having IM on the team? I decided to give it one last shot.

Well youre the first 'whoop' Ive heard, but judging from your description of how you feel, I'm not sure that you either whooped, or that the feeling you are experiencing is joy.

It appears to me that you are more curious than excited about whether this title can reignite old feelings you have for a franchise you used to love.
