Deodato is great (liked his work with Ellis on Thunderbolts), but Dillon just fits this series like a glove imo. Maybe I have a brain tumor.
That's a really good point, I LOVED what Jeff Parker did with Red Hulk. I am reading Red She-Hulk and it looks like Machine Man will continue with that book. I'm not sure what will happen with the LMD Annie?Do you think Way will comment on the Red Hulk's recent outings by Jeff Parker?
He gained a lot of allies and enemies (Annie the LMD,Machine Man, etc.) there.
Picked it up today. Wasn't a great first issue but I'll give it an arc before I properly judge it. I dig Dillon's art, Way is alright and its an interesting line up so I have high hopes.
Loved the Skottie Young variant cover!
Avengers, Avengers Arena, All-New X-Men, Deadpool, Thor, Hulk, Fearless Defenders, Journey into Mystery, Captain Marvel
I thought it was awful. Set up Ross as too much of a badass and didn't click with where the Punisher is now (or where I think he'll be at the end of War Zone).
I thought it would have been more organic if it was Castle in jail but Ross gets him pardoned for his team. This stupid "hey I set u up bro let's Hulk out and kill ppl if u willin to join mai team or else u die lolz" story was abysmal along with Dillon's dry art made this a terrible start to a meh concept.
I was chatting with friends and we all agree that Marvel is trying to recreate the Wow-factor of Wolverine with Cable, Puck, Rulk, Punisher, etc.I'm a little worried that Way is lapsing into his old bad habits. The issue wasn't bad, but there wasn't a lot there. It felt like the third issue of his old obsessive 5 issue arcs. Also, not enough Deadpool. I'm buying this series primarily to see him continue his work with the character. Overall it reminds me of Uncanny X-Force with Red Hulk instead of Wolverine. I like the pun in the use of General "Thunderbolt" Ross, but I don't really care about any of the characters except for Deadpool who has his own solo book so probably won't get much development. I'll see if it grows on me, but I might end up dropping it before the inevitable synthesis with the classic Thunderbolts like the end of Diggle's run.
I always thought of Deadpool as the comic relief, especially when they refer to him as the "Merc with the Mouth." I keep hearing mixed things that Daniel Way had ruined Deadpool? He has lasted as long as others who wrote the book about 60-issues.Deadpool had no development in Daniel Way's 63 issue run on the book, so he definitely wont here. Remender did more for Deadpool than Way ever did. Most writers treat Deadpool as a joke, and its too bad cause they could do so much more with his character than making him a cartoon clown. The new Marvel NOW deadpool is no better, 3 issues in and the series is boring.
But I did like his short scene in Thunderbolts #1. As long as he doesn't resort to his multiple narration box mindspeak I will enjoy this.

The March 2013 solicits are out and have Noto listed as the artist for #7. I love him as well so I'm well pleased!
From what I've read, Steve Dillon was fantastic on Hellblazer, Preacher, independent books, but he should NOT draw super hero's. I saw some of his art and I thought oh OK cool. Then it was explained to me that he draws the same face (Jesse Custer from Preacher) on ALL the characters.
According to some people, Daniel Way had ruined Wolverine Origins and Deadpool? I hadn't read the books, so I don't know personally? From what I've seen, Deadpool is a complex character, a comedian that is somewhat crazy; I don't know how that could be messed up? Way's run on Deadpool for over 60-issues which is about the same as other writers before him. He must have been doing something right, go figure?
I'm so bored with this martyrdom routine, this halo all you X-men love to polish. Self-described soldiers adorned in an "X" with no dedication to what it actually stands for.
