I Don't Care What You Say, Siege Was Totally Sweet.


So, Marvel's Big event Siege finally came to a close and despite what others are saying, this story was awesome. If you've been following Marvel in the slightest over the last 6 or 7 years, you probably know that they've been getting shat on this whole time. Thor Dies. Scarlett Witch goes crazy and kills some Avengers. Cap and Iron Man start a new team with Wolverine and Spider-Man. The Sentry joins the team and is a little crazy. Scarlett Witch is still crazy and rids the world of 90-odd% of the mutant populace. Iron Man tells people to follow the government or else. Captain America leads half the heroes against Iron Man and the Government. Iron Man wins. Captain America "dies". Half the Avengers are on the run from Iron Man and the law. Old, thought-dead sidekick Bucky becomes new Captain America. Thor comes back. The Sentry is still crazy. Shape-shifting aliens try to take over Earth, showing that they have been taking the place of certain people in the universe. Everyone blames Iron Man and he's ousted. Norman Osborn is given the reigns to the Marvel heroes and starts his Dark Avengers. Osborn is crazy and wants to be the master of everything. Osborn helps make Sentry a little less crazy but that's not comforting. Steve Rogers-Cap Comes back from the "dead". Iron Man has to wipe his own brain clean so that Osborn can't steal what's in it. Osborn goes after the Asgardians. Steve Rogers-Cap joins Iron Man and Thor, bringing the three back together for the first time in almost a decade. Sentry goes full blown crazy, destroys Asgard, Kills Ares and Loki and is then killed by Thor. Steve-Cap makes sure Bucky-Cap stays Captain America. Bucky-Cap joins Iron Man and Thor on Avengers team. Wolverine and Spider-Man stay with the New Avengers team. Steve-Cap (Captain Rogers) has been appointed new "SHIELD" director and starts his own ops team, the Secret Avengers.....
Ya caught up now? Good. I loved it. I love that the good-guys finally won. I love that after all this crap falls on them, they still find a way to pick themselves up. I love that things are looking bright. For a very long time, the Marvel Universe was a dark place. great stories but a dark place and I'm excited for the Heroic Age. And I hope you are too. Although, I will not be offended if you are not. For I have no stake in this outside of a "fanboys who has no life" but that's still not too bad.


  1. At least Marvel didn't decide to say well I think the last 5 or 6 years have been complicated and dark. Lets erase everything that has happened and say it was a dream, that reality has reset itself and other such nonsense comic book writers have done in the pass. I wish I had more time and money so I can read my comics again.

  2. You gotta get torrents. 3/4 of my reading feels like its now done on my computer. The OCD nerd in me cringes, but my wallet cries with love.
