    I opened a comic store in September.

    The shock of my life- Marvel Adventures titles are outselling the mainstream MU. And the UU.

    I hope marvel see the future in this and keep up the good work.

    Default Marvel Adventures

    My favorite titles right now are MA Fantastic Four, The Batman Strikes, and Justice League Unlimited. I already enjoy Ultimate Spider-Man immensely, so the MA Spider-Man didn't appeal to me. I tried reading the MA Avengers, but couldn't figure out why there was a Giant Girl. Is she supposed to be Janet Van Dyne-Pym; or, Hank and Jan's daughter; or, someone entirely new? And How do the Avengers fight Loki when there is no Thor? Outside of that, the issues that I read I really enjoyed.

    The reason I like the Marvel Adventures titles and the DC animated tie-in titles, is that they are self-contained. As a comic book reader, I don't want to have to go out and buy multiple titles just to enjoy a single story. For the longest time the only titles I was reading was Bruce Timm - Paul Dini The Batman Adventures tie-in title. Then I started reading Ultimate Spider-Man. Now, along with Ultimate Spider-Man, I'm pretty much reading only the "done-in-one" titles. I'm being very careful of the multiple issue storyline.

    The Marvel Adventures are fun and as far as I'm concerned they capture - as close as possible - the original sprit, essence and intent of the characters. I think they're great!

    I think that's why they're so popular.

    The big question is.... where is Marvel Adventures: X-Men.

    X-Men: The First Class was originally designed to be that book, but it was decided to launch it as a 616 series set in the past. And it's fun and has that classic feel. But we still need a MA: X-Men book. :)

    I get all the marvel adventures books. The only one I think needs some improving on is the Fantastic Four. It was much better about 3 or so months ago than it is now.

    Hey guys, glad you liked Part I -- I had a lot of fun talking with the guys, and they had some really smart insights into their work. And Part II is even better, because there are some hints at upcoming stories and killer art from EVERYBODY BECOMES MODOC!

    I also wanted to give a BOARD-EXCLUSIVE exchange with Fred Van Lente that I didn't put in the final article because it was too off-topic:

    (discussing the upcoming MODOK'S 11/"Everybody Becomes MODOC"/Ultimate Alliance, etc.)

    Zack: MODOK's everywhere lately, huh?

    Fred: He's great.

    Z: You know there's a build-a-MODOK the new Marvel Legends line?

    F: Yeah?

    Z: Yeah, you know, it's get a head here, part of the hover-chair there...

    F: I need to get call somebody to get one of those...

    Z: Yeah man, use your connections!

    F: I gotta get me some bling.

    Z: Some MODOK Bling.

    F: Which, as we all know, is the best kind of bling.

    Z: Always.
