    Because whoever walks out of this alive is going to have to live with the decisions they made in this story.
    $10 Liu takes over X-23 after this book and makes more pseudo-lesbian adventures with Jubilee and doesn't address anything that happens in Arena cause Laura is too precious.

    Give some high stakes to Colossus and Hawkeye, then.
    Me: Please Marvel, give some spotlight to your 21th century creations instead of killing them every month.
    Marvel: Avengers Arena, lol!
    Classy as always, Marvel.

    i liked most of the preview art for the book we have gotten so far, and im sure this was just a quick done cover but Jesus Christ look at Spirals Fingers, especialy on the right side.
    pretty bad cover. that said other than the fingers spiral looks ok.

    Axel, I love what you're doing, love Marvel NOW. Great job.

    I am concerned about Avengers Arena. It's very hard to swallow a book about kids getting murdered post-Newtown. I understand the story points you make, how any good story involves putting your protagonist thru the hardest things imaginable. I get it. But the specifics of this story were deeply troubling, even before last week. And And after, it's very hard to understand. (The fact that the death in issue 2 was such a throwaway -- there's no other way to show there's a ceiling than by killing a girl we've just met-- is a case in point.)

    Love you guys, but I wish you would reconsider this title. It's a terrible time for it.

    then it should be a terrible time for most of their titles. superheroes live violent lives. Havok just got shot in the face by his nephew, for instance.
    60% percent of the time, Ant-Man beats Doom every time

    But is not dead. In fact, a lot of the other heroes are having it pretty easy. Not to mention, THEY WEREN'T KIDNAPPED ON CHRISTMAS EVE!

    Also, Red Raven was an established character. Not a new face.

    Marcus is not the Samuel L. Jackson Nick Fury.
    That's funny Axel.

    Do Axel and Brevoort ever allow interviews that aren't ad/fluff pieces? Like, you know, serious criticism?

    I'm assuming you also want production on the Hunger Games movies to stop?

    Oh yay! Yet another Illuminati cover without Namor! And by the awesome Bianchi. Thanks a lot, Axel.

    Black Fury. LOL! He just gets more and more ridiculous. And so much for claims that he wasn't going to be running SHIELD and would be a field agent.

    Yes, his appearance will be friendly to those who gravitate toward the Sam Jackson Fury, but to me what's exciting is that we've got another African American power player in the Marvel Universe.

    Whatever grudge I had in 2012 is gone. 2013..Im back on board for Marvel. Your offerings are just too damn good.

    I hope the new Captain Marvel is an Avenger. The pages below are just awesome panel work. I may gripe But I have to say you guys have the best looking books....they tactile appease the hell out of my eyeballs.

    Nice work!

    This "interview" is so full of ass-kicking that it makes me sick.
    That's right! Al Gore invented the internet, let's all go kick his ass!

    I got your inconvenient truth right here, motherf*&%!
