                      To whom ever asked did I drop Iron Man when Stark wasn't in the armor ,yes

                      When Olson was Thor no the story was good but at other times yes.

                        Never dropped Cap even when the plot was thin and the art was crap no matter who had the shield.

                      You miss the point it is not the suit that makes Rogers is Cap Bruce Wayne is Batman  the characters make it so not who eheres the suit

                      Marvel/Disney is at times too PC and I don't like it.  The current changes/storylines are ill conceived and lame.

                      I enjoy reading the titles with the PROPPER lead characters not some temp lame replacement.

                      I am going to miss collecting comics for awhile at least until Captain America and Thor return.  I hope they don't wait to long and put the first string Avengers back in these second and third stringers are just not interesting.

                      U Know MARVEL U Should Just ANNOUNCE That A Lucky Fan OR THE One That Spends THE Most Online Gets To Be THE Cap For A Whole Year If U Really Think That's What Will Keep This Congo Line Goin.

SERIOUSLY WOW. Oh Yeah And NOTICED THE Fact That I Can Only Type In CAPITALS Like I'm SCREAMING. Smh

                      ACTUALLY If U Look Up MARVEL Sketch Pad N Doodle Art, They Like To Draw Men's Junk! For Some GAWD Awful Reason, ALOT! (crickets)

                      I'm not a fan of making a female Thor or buying the spiel of it's a female empowering moment. It's still gonna be from the same type of male writers that create things like Girls of Thunder. WTH name is that, would any men call themselves the Boys of Thunder? Have a female writer lead the Thor series and then I might actually believe that it's a valid attempt at gender equality

                      bdaedalus

                      All I want to know is... is that the Inhuman Dante next to Deathlok?

                      PoaTB
                      PoaTB

                      Okay, so here's what I think about this so far: It's great! I don't mind that Captain America is now black (And it's Sam Wilson! YAY!) or that Thor is now a woman. Actually I'm looking forward to female Thor. BUT! That is the problem.


                      When I heard that Thor is going to be a woman my first thought was, "So now he's dun goofed somewhere and because of this error he will now be a woman permanently. This should be great! I'm looking forward to when Black Widow teaches 'him' how to wear stilettos."


                      Instead there is a woman that's taking up the mantel of Thor and will become Thor. Not Thrud. (In Norse Mythology Thor named his and Sif's daughter after himself which is Thrud. So Thrud is the female version of Thor. In case you're still confused about the name think of it as Alexander and Alexandra. Same name for different gender.) While the idea of it is less exciting and a little more disappointing I'm still looking forward to it and give it a shot. Who knows? Perhaps a fresh face can make things better. Only time will tell. So come on October!

                      So Now the AVENGERS are going to have a few more females spotlighted on the team,your making MEDUSA & ANGELA ,Avengers,are you guys really going to call this female THOR" Now your going to give Tony Stark Superior IRON Man?I could understand changing of Captain America,  from Falcon to Cap, wouldn't it have being better if Falcon change his name to American Eagle,if your going to bring in another Deathlok,wouldn't be better if it was the girl from Avengers Undercover or one of the original Deathlok, where is this team going to go, "Uncanny" cause there the Scarlet Witch ''Secret" cause there ANTMAN, Regular AVENGERS cause your using Winter Soldier , Guess he doesn't want to be Captain America again after the "Fear Series and who's the guy on Fire? Is that Damon Hellstrom, I though he was part Villain working with Zemo

                      Can some name all of the characters on the cover? Marvel changes things so much, I want to make sure I'm identifying them correctly

                      feliciogs
                      feliciogs member

                      I'm not even mad with the New Thor or Capitan America, really, I'm more bothered by Iron Man design

                      jabbahey
                      jabbahey

                      Since the stories of Thor are taken from the Viking religion can they really be trademarked? To me this seems like public domain. What would stop another company from coming in and starting a new series? That would truely be a kick in the teeth to Marvel. I would love to see the way EBAS would draw Lady Sif for a Zenescope cover.


                      I don't really care about the change to Thor or Captain America. If I don't like it, I just won't buy it. Not to mention did anyone really believe that the Peter Parker wouldn't be back when Superior Spider-Man came out? This is just the same thing. Give it a year and everything will be back to normal. 


                      Thanks for listening.

                      @PoaTB A lot of people are having confusion over the name but I am confident Marvel will clear that up for us all in the comic when it is released.

                      @du365 Top row is Medusa (Inhuman), Scarlet Witch, Superior Iron Man (not Spider-Man), Doctor Strange and Ant-Man.  Bottom row is Winter Soldier, Angela (originally a Spawn character but her creator brought her to Marvel recently, as an Avenger and Thor's sister), the new female Thor, Captain America (Sam Wilson, formally Falcon), I'm not sure (I believe he's in the current Avengers World series), and the new Deathlok (who's getting a new solo series in October).

                      JCrizzle76
                      JCrizzle76

                      @du365 Sure thing, the line up goes from left to right.  Starting with Rapunzel on the top left, Red Hood, I mean Bucky below her, one of Spawn's enemies next to him, above her is one of the miracle twins, next to that is ROM the space knight, and then below him is politically correct Captain America, next to him is Johnny Storm on steroids, above him is Dr. Getting some Strange, next to Ant man and below Ant Man is Marvel's version of DC comic's Cyborg.  That about covers it.

                      dcb1012
                      dcb1012

                      @jabbahey Technically, yes, I believe just about anyone could write a story about Thor. However, I challenge anyone to write a better one than Marvel. And I don't believe Marvel would even notice it if anyone tried. 

                      dcb1012
                      dcb1012

                      @JCrizzle76 I ask because if you actually check both publishers revenue for the last year, you'll see that Marvel not only dominated DC but every other comic industry as well in sales in 2013 and the trend is continuing this year as well. As far as sales go and money made, Marvel is very obviously winning. 

                      So what exactly is DC winning, again?

                      @JCrizzle76 @du365 You see that last one is funny because Deathlok existed 6 years before Cyborg did...

                      jabbahey

                      @dcb1012 @jabbahey You are probably right. Jason Aaron is a great writer and would be hard to top. However, the cover art could be greatly improved by some of the Zenescope artists. And I don't think they would have a difficult time recruiting a excellent writer to take on Thor for Zenescope. I guarantee they would notice if it was DC who took Thor and ran with it.

                      @dcb1012 @JCrizzle76 Winning my approval, the reader.  The most important battle to win.  I really don't care if Marvel is selling a lot.  It doesn't mean it is quality reading.  Micheal Bay makes a lot of money but his movies are rubbish.  So are you saying Marvel is like Micheal Bay films?  I would totally agree with you on that.  DC comics are like Ridley Scott or Martin Scorsese films.

                      dcb1012
                      dcb1012

                      @jabbahey @dcb1012 Yeah... I don't think Zenescope would be an improvement... The last thing the world needs is more incredibly sexist covers of overly scantily clad women. I think Marvel has some outstanding cover artists who don't require blatant sex appeal to show that they are good artists. 

                      dcb1012
                      dcb1012

                      @JCrizzle76 @dcb1012 Well, that is a gratuitously incongruous comparison. By that logic, you could have filled in the blanks with literally any director for either one to somehow make one sound better than the other. I think you're also leaving out the fact that both aforementioned companies have movie studios as well. So, in order for your statement to make any sense at all, you would have to say dc comics is to dc studios as marvel comics is to marvel studios bringing you back to the beginning of your circular argument. 

                      Also, are you seriously insinuating that as a DC fan who doesn't like Marvel, you actually just so happened to be reading the Marvel comics news page and then decided to make an account on the Marvel website just to make an irrelevant comment that was relative to only you? 

                      Doesn't that seem a little... ludicrous?

                      @JCrizzle76 @dcb1012 Um... You know Marvel comics are the ones about real people, right? Like actual humans who deal with everyday problems on top of having to deal with crime everyday. Marvel comics are like Tarantino films (character development, room for comedic moments, great action, not for people who like black and white storylines) and DC comics are people that are clearly defined as good guy/badguy with basically godlike powers punching the crap out of each other while things explode around them. Sounding a little Michael Bay to you? Cuz it does to me.

                      @dcb1012 @jabbahey I don't really consider myself to be sexist because I like beautiful women. I I'm sure that my wife doesn't think I'm sexist when she puts some sexy little outfit on and I tell her how awesome she looks. As a man I am just enjoying what I have been genetically engineered to enjoy. But that's just me. Some of the best artists drawing for Zenescope, Big Dog, Dynamite and other independent companies are women drawing scantily clad women. As a matter of fact I think that women are the best at doing it? Does that make those women sexist or do you just consider them sellouts to the cause?

                      @BooYah27 @JCrizzle76 @dcb1012 Pfft rofl.  You are kidding right? Compare Captain America Winter Soldier and Thor with the Dark Knight and Batman Begins and try and compare DC to Micheal Bay again.

                      @jabbahey @dcb1012 I never said that you were sexist for liking the covers. And yes, women can too, be sexist. Look up what feminism is and why it is still an issue in today's culture and you will see why I have a problem with those covers. I don't have a problem with people liking to look at them, I just have a problem with the cover itself. No personal offense to you or anyone else in this matter.

                      dcb1012
                      dcb1012

                      @JCrizzle76 @dcb1012 I'm sorry? How exactly does "cohesive argument and valid question" compare to "not having had sex"? You are really terrible at this whole using logic thing aren't you? To counter your remark: Your whole response screams "I am irredeemably uneducated". Just saying.

                      dcb1012

                      @JCrizzle76 @BooYah27 @dcb1012 Batman is a less intelligent Iron Man with a less interesting back story. He is a rich and selfish version of Captain America with a less interesting back story. He is a rich and corrupt version of Moon Knight except weaker with a less interesting back story. He is a rich and less capable Winter Soldier with a less interesting back story. 

                      Also, did you even watch the trailer for Man of Steel? That screams Michael Bay. Don't even get me started on Superman.

                      jabbahey

                      @dcb1012 @jabbahey I didn't take it as a personal offense so don't worry about that. My question was just that, a question. It was intended to be asked in a completely serious way. Since I do know what feminism is I don't need to look it up. Men have it driven down their throats everytime they open a magazine, newspaper or turn on the television. However the term feminism has been bastardized by so many to push their political agenda that the official meaning is no longer what can be assumed when discussing the subject. Today feminism is more of a tool to divide men and women than a a way to advocate for equal economic, social and political rights. Feminism will always be a issue even if both men and women are completely equal in all aspects, because like the race card, the sexist card can always be played without any need to backup the accusation.


                      I wonder if it's not sexist to call a female cover artist sexist because she draws what she loves to draw? She's only using her equal rights to do what she wants. Maybe she's Lesbian and enjoys looking at beautiful women on the covers just like a man. So maybe your reasoning that women can be sexist can also be considered homophobic in some cases. My cousin is a Lesbian and when we get together we always joke about having the same taste in women. 


                      None of this is pointed at you or anyone else here. Once again I'm just questioning the logic of pulling the sexist accusation everytime someone disagrees with a piece of art. Should we burn down the Louvre since it contains nude paintings of women drawn by men?

                      dcb1012
                      dcb1012

                      @jabbahey @dcb1012 Again, in this string of comments, I have not called anyone at all sexist. I have no idea where you are pulling that from. 

                      Aside from that, essentially everything you said in your first paragraph is why there is still a need for feminism in our society.

                      @JCrizzle76 @dcb1012 I'm logical about everything in life whether presented with poor logic or not. It's a good way to live. And yes, I am logical about comic books, a facet of entertainment that I rather enjoy. I like the writing. It's great stuff. And no, I'm not hurt in any way at all by anything anyone here has said. As a human being, it's my responsibility to point out when someone does/says something illogical.

                      jabbahey

                      @dcb1012 @jabbahey Sorry your comment telling me to "look feminism up and why it is still an issue today" implied that you were so much more intelligent than I. I guess your arrogance got the best of me. I'm not someone who holds their opinions or is intimidated by political correctness. Feminism means equal, not superior to a man. Your implied superiority is a horrible characteristic of the modern feminist. 


                      Maybe you should choose your words more carefully.
