I think me and you (apropett) are on the same page as far as the thunderbolts go. I think Thunderbolts team from issue #110 should have become the so called dark avengers but keeping the name Thunderbolts. The ellis and deodato team to me is my favorite of all time. Pure Magic. Dark Avengers was spawned from this and i sure hope when all this is over maybe we can have thunderbolts rise again with the right team. I really don't like the new team. Ghost is all right but the magic isn't there for me so i keep reading dark avengers to try and keep the memory alive of my favorite team the [u] Thunderbolts. [/u]

You misunderstand. The Dark Avengers meeting their "Doom", does not mean the end of the Dark Reign. It might mean the fall of Osborn, but I fully expect the Dark Reign to continue...just possibly with Doom or the Void or somebody like that in charge somehow. The New Avengers will have to remain underground until the SHRA is repealed...and Osborn falling at the hands of Doom does not sound like that is going to affect the laws of the government.

Yeah, I hope Osborn doesn't die......he is an interesting villain.

If Osborns gonna go I don't see a point of there being Dark Avengers

So...does this mean there'll be back to two main Avengers monthly titles, or what?? Young Avengers will stay, for sure, but will there still be a point for Avengers: Initiative montly??? Or, will it be called something else??Between the new and mighty Avengers, i wonder what would be the reason to maintain both teams existing after all the smokes cleared. i mean, if the dark team's gone, then there won't be any need for Luke's team to stay underground, right?? And, the mighty, aka female Loki's team, with her most likely been discovered to be behind its formation, will the team still stay on, or will Hank try to take charge of the REAL Avengers team, which will pit him against Luke, Clint and their gang???As for David Finch...his art's fine, not exactly my cup of tea... BUT, like Howard Porter's art during Grant Morrison's JLA, his art serves its purpose. Even though, i ain't too crazy with his style, Finch's has that energy that gives Bendis' otherwise "talkie" storylines the sense of urgency and gravitas. while at it, i ain't too crazy with Bendis' style of dialogue, either, but, his storytelling always gets me intrigued, even till now. heck, it practically converted me from a jla-fan into an avenger-fan. and that says a lot. like his Power series, i like the way he make us the readers to be engaged and try to put the lil pieces together, like puzzles.personally, i haven't read the Dark Avengers series, yet, but, i didn't think it could (and should) be a permanent/long lasting monthly series. maybe they say it's a mini, from the beginning, to throw us off. so that the fans wouldn't know how long this series gonna last and end.regarding Loki, i prefer the character to stay a "she". but, i guess they're preparing her, or him, for the big screen adaptation of Thor, 2 years from now, where the on-screen LOKI will be a GUY.last, but not least, i think the pair who SHOULD play a major role in ending Norman's dark reign ought to be: Spider-Man AND Tony Stark.and, i dunno...hopefully, by the end of this chapter in the marvel universe, especially with the real Cap'n America most likely to be back, the heroes will be as one, once again. and i really wanna see the marvel's trinity (Cap, Tony & Thor) to meet up and hopefully make up. the meeting will definitely be a guarranteed major event. another big seller. after all the teasing, i think the fans deserve it. it's gonna be the BIG payoff.

Is back. If you notice it seems Loki has returned to his male form. Which is just as strange as seeing him go female. This guy is truely the Rupaul of the Marvel universe.

He needs to go.[/quote] No way man...Osborn is a great character. They kill him, they ruin lots of potential storylines. I can't see him going to jail though, so it will be hard to see what they do with him. How do you go from being the most powerful man in the world to a jail cell?Maybe he'll be like Tony Stark and end up on the run...only he will be running from EVERYONE. Namor, Doom, The Heroes, The various governments around the world...[/quote] Totally agree with you. I know Norman's DR has to end sometime, but I certainly hope they dont kill him. He is a great character.[/quote] Totally, He plays a really good villian.

The art looks great. Raw and uncompromising. I don't think for once that it's gonna be over for Osborn here. Maybe it's just one of his publicity stunts. I see him double-crossing the rest of the Cabal and then increasing his popularity with the people. It should take the true good guys to take him down. Namely Cap, Iron Man, Spider-man etc.

I'm looking forward to this story and Finch is a great artist, but Doom's face kinda looks like the Ultimate version or something.

When i noticed the ad for this i grinned ear to ear. :venom: Doom Rules!!! He could be the one to let captain america back into present time by accident probably but sometimes I don't think normans demise is going to be by someone as well known but it's possible,hell anything is in comics. I'm not so eager for the goblin to go away but as far as norman and his hair (3 pointer swish) ha ha yes as midnight oil sang The Time Has Come.But this could go many ways. I think swordsman could come back to haunt norman. Norman did use his sister as leverage and i know strucker is realllllllly pissed about her dying by the hands of the so called skrull named (bullseye ha ha).Songbird is another canidate but she is gonna need big help but i think fixer and mach 5 are going to come to her and black widows aid.And now that it's out about where pennance is and maybe radiation man getting the call from fixer and mach 5 it could be thunderbolts that go in for the kill. But who knows..I know i have enjoyed the dark avengers and this stuff is about to get even more killer.

[quote@apropett David Finch is an awesome artist. I loved his work when he once did New Avengers at the beginning of that run. This looks good. Its time for Osborn to fail and for his dark reign to end. Doom and Loki will take him out or they will open the doorways to norman's defeat. I hope its the new avengers who then stomp osborn for good and put him away or, kill him. I don't mind if Osborn is killed off. He needs to go.[/quote] You may be right, but I think when all is said and done, the original Captain America will be the one to take Osborn down for good

This has got me hyped. As bad as Osborn is, I am seeing the Mighty and New Avengers having to back him against Doom and Loki. Are they really going to let Doom be the one to take out Osborn? I really hope not...Come on Gobby, I have faith in you to show that you can hang with the big boys! Maybe some stolen tech from doom when you peeked in his armor or something...and please Bendis, give us at least ONE pumpkin bomb :-)

Well, From what i can tell the finch artwork looks great. I didn't expect deodato to stick around long since he only did thunderbolts for 10 issues or so. Seems to be the trend. This is one of there better selling books so hopefully there will be more treats than tricks if you know what i mean.Rock On! Neaves

Mmmm... Seems not only Doom, but half the Cabal is turning against Osborn. Just look at how he's being attacked by the Hood and (male) Loki too. And Tasky is no match for any of these!!!
