Anyone else dislike the Ultimate Thanos arc in FF? It was all so boring.



616 Thanos is among my favorite villians ever. Ultimate version is horrible. Acheron is a total snoozefest.

I'm not sure who you order your books through....but all of us at aboutheroes get our books from DCB Sercive. They have an option to get your books shipped weekly and we get our books on Thursday instead of Wednesday. They have the best prices on the net. For example if you pre-order trades they are usually 50% off.

The Skrulls have been infiltrating the Marvel U since the 60s. Super Skrulls can mimic powers, but these seem to be a new breed of Skrulls. During the Twelve storyline in X-men, Wolverine was replaced by a Skrull when he became Death.

The most popular and longest Skrull infiltration was Lyja. She replaced Alicia Masters when the FF were hold off by the Beyonder during the Secret Wars until Fantastic Four # 374. Pretty much from 1985 to 1991.

I'm not sure if this Secret Invasion was planned out since New Avengers 1. I know Bendis claims that, but hell with a storyline like this you can pretty much claim it was planned out from Fantastic Four 2.

Damn I really enjoyed Invincible Iron Man 1. I love how as much as I hated Tony over the past couple years, both of his comics are definitely two of my favorites from Marvel. Can't wait to read Viva Las Vegas 1 in a bit.

I checked out the site but was a little confused about ordering a subscription, I don't buy many TPB anymore. I saw individual comics but whats the best way to set up a subscription? Would it be easier to e-mail them a list?

So I'm looking into getting back into comics and just picked up the following today:

Invincible Iron Man 1
Secret Invasion 1
X-Force 1-3
Cable 1-2

I really enjoyed all the books listed above, with Cable probably standing out as my favorite of the bunch. Is there anything else I should be checking out? Maybe any TPBs that would give a little more back story on what I just picked up?

You picked up some good Marvel comics. Nice choices. As for TPB it sounds like you're an X-Fan so I recommend "House of M," "Decimation" & mainly "Messiah Complex" when it comes out. Here's what I wrote in the previous thread, BTW they'er all Marvel titles. Hope it helps:

Secret Invasion - This years huge cross-over event. Skrulls are invading, I'm sure you've heard. The second issue is getting ready to come out. It shouldn't be too hard to locate issue #1. Plus if you liked Runaways they're having a tie-in called "Runaways/Young Avengers: Secret Invasion"... duh

Kick Ass - Think Super-Bad meets Marvel. Your typical nerd wants to be a superhero, but he's got no powers. Keep in mind this is not set in the Marvel Universe, so no Wolverine team-ups in this one. The first issue may be hard to get (it sold out fast) Issue #2 just came out and I think a reprint of Issue #1 will hit shelves soon.

X-Force - Probably my favorite X-Title out right now. Wolverine leads this new covert-ops X-Men team. The art is amazing. Issue #3 is the most recent

Incredible Herc - Trust me, this comic is amazing, action packed and funny. I've never been a Herc fan but I am now. It's Herc running around with boy genius Amadeus Cho being chased by S.H.E.I.L.D. with a great conforntation between him and his brother Aeres. He took over Hulk's old comic around issue #111. I urge you to pick up some back issues or wait for the first TPB. It also helps to know the World War Hulk story and Cho.

Hulk - He got a new series, it's currently on Issue #3. This one hasn't grabed me yet however I think it'll take off in the future.

Skaar: Son of Hulk - Set to come out this summer. If you liked WWH or Planet Hulk then this is a must.

Ultimate Spider-Man - The new Venom arc is starting up soon, it might be a good time to get onboard with the best Spider-Man title out. The great thing about Ultimate Spider-Man is being able to jump into at any arc.

Thor - He's back and he's reviving Asgard. Already at issue #8. Possibly pick up the TPB when it comes out.

Fantasctic Four - Just started a new arc a few issues back with power team of Millar & Hitch (Ultimates) They promise to jump start the FF and I'm on board. If you're intrested it's gonna be a 16-issue run. Go back a few issues to #554 and you should have no problem at all getting into it.

Yeah, those would help you out thew most. But if you are a Cable fan, you should pick up Cable and Deadpool. Definitely the most awesome series.:D:D

Thanks for the help. Cable and Deadpool is definitely looking like a buy for me.

Any recommendations on where I can pick up some of these TPBs cheap? And for the House of M stuff, should I just check out the main House of M book or should I also look at the X-men, Hulk, Wolverine, etc. House of M books as well? Is there anything really important I'd be missing there?

Try the main one first, but it doesn't matter which you start with first. I tried the Hulk first(It was cheapest) and it was pretty cool. I used to buy my TPB at Borders from Thursday to Sunday. They have a coupon (20% or more off of a book) that is only valid during those days. Usually when make a purchase, and have their rewards card, the coupon is on the receipt. You can also get one sent to your e-mail. Otherwise, check amazon.

This has to be one of the corniest jokes I've ever read, figured this was the right thread for it.

What would Iron Man have been called if Tony Stark were Mexican?




Iron Manuel.

I enjoy the videos and puns posted by Joliet Jake. I think he's almost as funny as my favorite comedian, Dane Cook. Now excuse me while I listen to Fallout Boy's music on their myspace page.

Couldn't they copy things like colossus' metal skin though? Granted the cyclops visor and stuff is gear obviously, couldn't they actually do wolverines claws though? Those claws look way over sized though, unless they can manipulate the powers they're copying.

Also, Hank Pym and Janet could have been replaced all the way back in Avengers: Disassembled. Evidence is nothing more than speculation, but when Janet sees the destroyed Avengers Mansion, she says something like "It's beautiful." Also, Hank's favorite moment as an Avenger was the Kree-Skrull war, which he wasn't a part of. I know it's stretching a bit, but Bendis said there were little clues like that planted all over the place. I could see it. They could've been replaced when Pym went to visit her in the hospital when she was tiny-sized. It never gives detail on how the doctors were able to treat her at tiny size.

So, its all speculation, but I think it's interesting and makes sense.
