Marvel USED to put out some great diverse books. Nova, Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain Britain and MI13, Agents of Atlas, etc were great books that obviously weren't going to sell like gangbusters without nurturing and time to grow. None of them got both of those things. Nova and GotG got sidelined for several cosmic events in a row when they should have been front and center for the push would have come from that while the others weren't a focal point of anything. Now Marvel is all Avengers and X-men and Avengers vs X-men. Yawn! Speaking of which, I'm horrified that someone actually allowed this abomination of AvX on the page. In concept it sounds cools and could have been great but the execution of it is horrible. I actually bought the first two issues (my first Marvel books in six months), I won't be reading more, and they were beyond bad. Hardly anyone was written in character, there was no respect at all for past continuity . . not even a throwaway line or two, and its clearly just a lazily done cash grab that is all concept and no substance.
