For me there is almost nothing that can happen in either of those two issues that would anger me personally.
Pull: Avengers, New Avengers, Mighty Avengers, Captain America, Superior Spider-Man, Superior S.M.T.U, Ultimate Universe, Chew, Invincible, Batman & Smallville.

Bad news everyone...
Repeat to myself "It's just a book, I should really just relax".

I'll PM Slott with spoilers to Marvel's The Avengers 2
I'm dropping new comic books entirely after ASM 700, so if those made me angry instead of being a satisfying last story I will add "BOO FINALE" to my signature and keep it a constant
Spider-Man, Superman, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Barry Allen, Iron Man, Wally West, Batman, Moon Knight, Iron Fist & Power Man
Just keep reading the comic... the only time I quit was around the reboot, and that was because of the quality of the stories. I found them lacking what I enjoyed on Spidey's a bit after Revelations, but I kept reading until I had enough. I really hope this doesn't happen again.

In other words, what StoneGold said.

Having read #699 (it's Wednesday evening here in Australia), I can safely say that no one should really feel angered by this issue. If anything, they should feel hope. But knowing Slott, it'll turn out to be false hope! Mwa hahahahahahaha!
Based on the spoiler being offered at Bleeding Cool, I'm not so much angered as disgusted. Just a misguided choice by Slott, and I can't help but wonder--do editors do anything at all in comics anymore? It would seem to me that the definition of an editor's job is to say "no" to exactly such bizarre writing choices as this one.
This arc will be remembered mostly for this one really dumb decision Slott made. I was considering hopping onboard with this arc, but now I'll be waiting until Slott leaves the book before maybe adding it to my pull list. The recklessness of this decision isn't up there with Straczynski's butchering of Gwen Stacy for cheap shock value, but it shows the same lack of judgment that leads me to avoid the work of certain writers.
