Not what it should have been ... - MartyPrime
I read the book with an open mind looking for that fresh “new” start that I got with new Avengers (Volum
e 1) #1 and what I got was an epilog to Avengers vs. X-Men. First off let me say that Cassaday’s art was amazing, a little stiff at points but great to look at and soak in. His art combined with Laura Martin’s colors made each page a visual treat (if not a little too red). The book opens with a grotesque lobotomy that clearly makes it unreadable for kids under 9. Then the scene moves to a boring funeral for Charles “Chuck” Xavier – the scene dragged on far too long and seemed out of character for Wolverine … but this is “Marvel Now” and perhaps THIS is the “new” Logan … but I have a hunch next time we see him not written by Remender he will be acting completely different. I did keep an open mind … after all I liked THIS Wolverine … it reminds me of Claremont’s version.

Don’t get me wrong Rick Remender did a fine job … but I have to ask who this book was written for – it’s not for younger readers – I don’t imagine anyone under the age of 14 would find anything to enjoy here – unless he or she was a Marvel Zombie. It wasn’t for me … someone who checked out from Marvel a few years back – there was just too much AvX wrap-up to find anything to latch onto. For me this is just another first issue to bump sales … it seems to be just the “next” issue of Avengers.

Oh – I forgot about the costumes – for some reason everyone changed their look overnight and no one seems to have noticed … unless that happens in another book. Finally someone needs to tell Remender and Cassaday that if a body has been dead for more than a few hours – blood will not spray out of it when you cut into it – also before they bury someone they normally drain all the blood.
