Hi Axel, I have a questions this time around;
First off, I am loving AvX! So far this has been my favourite event book, and on that note; Luke Cage has been a major player with the Avengers for ove half a decade now, yet he has never had a significant role in any of the event book, with the spotlight always falling on Cap, Iron Man & Thor (for the Avengers)- will we see Luke have a larger role to play in future events?
Secondly, how much sway does publishing have over animation at Marvel? The recent news of cancelation of Avengers: Earths Mightiest Heroes and immediate replacement with a new Avengers Assemble cartoon has sparked much ire on the message boards. It seems to me (& apparently a lot of fans) that creating a singular team in the movie, 1 book & cartoon universes insulates & fractures this group from the rest of the books, diluting the whole Avengers franchise rather than enhancing it (which was the obvious intent).
Lastly, what is your opinion of the recent WSJ "book review" that seemed to insinuate that the big 2 (even going so far as to name Joe Q & Brian Bendis among others) are responsible for the comics industry's perceived inaccessibility for fans of the Avengers movie?
