    Why post this story after #2 comes out, it makes for a weird interview with the readers already knowing what happens with the SPOCK-Mary Jane relationship.
    DC/Marvel reader. Mostly Superman,Batman,X-Men,Avengers fan...guess I am a fan of most comics.

    I'm excited to see Screwball again! Like another of Dan's contributions Overdrive, Screwball isn't a serious threat to Spidey, not any world dominating schemes, does know his secret idenity or loved ones, can't overpower him in a fight...but they both have this unbridled JOY of being bad, and their skillsets lead to visually interesting scenes, so I can't help but love them.

    Unfortunately, this also means the return of Ramos, drawing the Avengers no less. Make way for Giraffe Wolverine, ya'll!

    I no longer buy Spider-Man thanks to this ridiculous storyline that will go on far too long. That and fugly art. One day it will all go away and I'll be happy.

    For that to be even remotely true, the first two issues need to be bad. And they were great.

    So, no.

You're all so sure it was coming -- Well? Here it is! But if you think that's all there is, get ready to be wrong.
    Brian Bendis wrote the first few issues of New Avengers with this "I'll show the fans they're wrong and this will make me awesome" mentality by putting Echo under the Ronin mask (after it was clearly established that Ronin was male in all the advance artwork), and that went absolutely nowhere. In fact, she was the only stain on an otherwise very JLA'ized Avengers line-up.

    It's easy to fool readers. You've got control over the medium. If you draw a shady silhouette as being 5'2" and later reveal that person to be a 6'8" monster, you just fooled everyone. But what does this do for the story?

    That's the part Bendis forgot in his obsession to "fool the fans". Hopefully Dan learned something from Brian's mistakes, and whatever surprises he has in store actually serve the story.
