Wait, you think the most innovative era in Marvel since the 70s sucked?
Not all of it, but Joe Q's editorial mandates have for the most part been bad decisions and his attitude of "screw continuity" is a giant middle finger to old fans like myself.
Haven't read it yet, but it revolves around the Scarlet Witch, one of my least favorite characters.
House of M & Decimation
Utter crap (imo)
One of the only really good stories I've seen come out of Marvel since the 90s.
I really dislike the Ultimate line and I resent that the movies and other media like video games have such a strong Ultimates base in them (like in Ultimate Alliance the CGI sequences were all Ultimate characters, or Samuel L Jackson as Fury in the Iron Man movies).
Planet Hulk and WWHulk
Meh, the only purpose to either of those stories was to show how all powerful the Hulk supposedly is. The Hulk withstanding Black Bolt's scream at point blank range? The Hulk's not -that- tough.
Annihilation and Nova
Yep, here's the other really good story. But this along with Civil War was about it.
Brubaker's Captain America
Is this the Bucky Captain America? I don't worship false idols.
Fraction's Iron Man
I didn't read Iron Man before, and after Civil War I'll never read him again. Tony Stark is a fascist douchbag.
My god, this stuff is gold! Forget the status quo!
Well considering I loathed a few of the things you feel are gold, I think we can say without a shadow of a doubt that we have differing opinions on the matter. No worries, though. I'm just glad you didn't list One More Day as gold. My god, OMD is the primary reason that I don't care for Joe Q as EIC. He -forced- the writer to write the story because in his opinion, Spider-Man was "better" when he was single and living with his Aunt May eating wheatcakes everyday.
