The Heroic Age?

Last updated on February 27th, 2012 at 08:28 am

Wasn’t The Heroic Age supposed to return us to good ol’ fashioned fun in comic books? Wasn’t it supposed to be a shift away from the these dark, gut wrenching story-lines like House of M, Civil War, Secret Invasion, and Siege?

I only ask because since the Heroic Age came about almost 2 years ago we have seen Fear Itself (Thor dies again), are about to see the Avengers take on the X-Men, and eventually we will be treated to the dystopian future of the Ultron War.

Could it be that Marvel merely rebranded the same old same old as marketing scheme? Gasp! Say it ain’t so Joe! Pretty soon you might need to cancel all your titles and re-start them all at #1.

    LOL. I agree, the Avengers book started of strong, fun and reminiscent of the silver age…but it seems it was too good to be true.
