jds51500 plus member 5pts I hate to tell you this, my friend (sarcasm) but Comics have evolved.If you want to see The Avengers fighting some Super Bad Guy, issue after issue, month after month, just read the earlier books when Stan and company had to have a New Bad guy every month. It gets a little monotonous after a while and lacks variety but if that's what you like. I enjoy a well laid out plot, there doesn't have to be action every issue. I'm a big fan of the first Star Trek TV series, full of action and excitement but I also enjoyed the Next Generation series, which was more about solving problems and yes, a lot of talking. I think the writing of Avengers and New Avengers both, are Genius and when the action does finally come up, it's an awesome payoff because it was set up so well with thoughtfulness and purpose. Nuff Said.
