* I've been pretty much done with Wolverine as a character since 1993. Magneto could have permanently killed him in Fatal Attractions and I'd have been cool with it. Laura's more relatable to me. In fact, I didn't want Logan to be resurrected this last time and still want Laura to own the codename.
I could take or leave Wolverine also, but it took me a little longer to get there...
Quote:* Bruce is a stick-in-the-mud depression fest, whereas Amadeus is sweet fun. Both have worth, but I get tired of depression fests a lot easier. Never get tired of fun.
I like Amadeus a LOT, as Amadeus. I only read about him as Hulk in Champions, but I didn't recognize the character at all. Maybe it was part of his character arc that he stopped thinking when he got smart, but it removed what I liked about him.
Quote:Kamala > Carol - I'm still a huge fan of Carol despite several things. But at this point, I think Carol have been victimized by too many writers (including KSD). Kamala is free of that. Also, she's more relatable, almost like she's Peter dressed as Carol.
I haven't liked Carol since her last Ms. Marvel series. Kamala is fine, I guess. Again, my main exposure to her is from Champions, where she was a bit overbearing.
Quote:I really wasn't a fan of the recent Vision maxiseries until Viv's development afterwards. I've loved Vision since the beginning. He might be my Top 5 Avengers. But she's come damn near close.
LOVED Vision's maxiseries. Viv was the reason I bought Champions.
Quote:The new Wasp (Nadia) is better than Jan at this point. For decades, Jan's just become mostly horrible, imo.
Don't really know her. Haven't read anything with Wasp in it in a while, either.
Quote:On the other hand, I still don't care about Sam Alexander, and he's not even in the same universe of awesomeness as Rider.
Truth, although I actually enjoyed Sam in Champions. His relationship with Miles was one of the best part of the series.
Quote:Miles Morales is okay. I don't dislike him, but he's nowhere near Peter. As far as Spider-characters go, I don't think he's even in my Top 5.
I liked Kaine in the last volume of New Warriors, and I've always been fond of Julia Carpenter.
Quote:I've really wanted to like Riri, but I'm just not there yet, and I'm not holding my breath.
Quote:As a team, I think I'm a bigger fan of the Champions than Avengers... at least until Aaron leaves.
Ugh. I hung with Champions for about 6 issues or so. Then the issue where it was REALLY REALLY important that they stay popular online. That issue made it clear that the series was aiming for someone younger than me.
Quote:Aaand... I don't really like any of the Young Avengers, especially Kate Bishop.
I LOVED the first volume.
