    Having said all this, it's pretty easy to block stuff out if you don't like it. In the Savage Land the only people doing stuff that had to be killing stuff was people who would definately be up for the killing.
    There's an important distinction between a soldier fighting in a war and a police officer enforcing the law.

    This is why after the end of the Kang Dynasty storyline, Ms. Marvel was exonerated in an Avengers tribunal for killing the Master. Because the world was in a major crisis from Kang's invasion. It was a World War, not law enforcement in a community.

    But I'd argue a difference between a soldier fighting a war and somebody who isn't a soldier in a war.

    I've got no problem with some heroes killing, Ms Marvel has a military background so it makes sense. My point is that seemingly everyone went into "Okay it's a war, so I now kill" mentality. Just because it is kill or be killed, doesn't mean everyone kills.

    Bendis said people will be happy with the new writer.

    I was a bit overwhelmed by the Dark Reign and Dark Avengers announcements, but that interview has me prepared to shell out more cash to Bendis...

    Actually, that's kind of creepy! What did that bald bastard do to my brain with his sexy words!?

    I'm glad to see that Marvel isn't going to do a big event next year. As much as I love Secret Invasion, I'm starting to get event burnout.

    For people nervous about how it's going to end, that's a cool thing. You don't know how it's going to end! We're a bunch of jaded, seen-it-all fans, you know? It's hard to come up with a story where you don't know how it's going to end, you know? And I saw it today they don't know what's going to happen! I was on the message boards. So, that's cool.
    Bendis, I hope you realize that you'll have to answer to a LOT of people if this story ends with the skrulls winning.


    Just sayin'.

    You're in luck--there's no way that's happening.

    The level of Skrull over-exposure pretty much guarantees that they're going to disappear after this event's over.

    Great piece! I'm super excited for..well whatever is coming up next after SI. I'm excited for the remaining two issues and I think we are all taking Yu for granted. He's managing to do an action oriented series with tons of specific looking characters as well as tons of intricately designed Super Skrulls and he is getting it to us on schedule. Same for Morales and Martin. Sure, some of you will say that they're supposed to do that, but we know that it is indeed difficult. But they've gotten six issues in our hands, each one looking better than the one before. So these guys need acknowledgment for that. Seriously.
    carlgiannini: All I wanted to know is what trades have been released. Now I've committed to spend an extra hundred or two on comics. What happened here?
    The Lord Retail: I happened. Lord Retail happened to you. I'm sorry friend, but I simply can't turn it off..
