The comic reader’s sense of entitlement makes me laugh. If you want to read something that congratulates you for buying another thing that rewards Marvel for their treatment of comic creators, you’re in the wrong place, True Believer.

Since 1985’s Crisis On Infinite Earths,, the “Summermegacrossover” has become a tradition at the Big Two, an action-packed, highly-lucrative “event” in which some unprecedented calamity calls for all of DC’s or Marvel’s biggest guns to band together to avert the destruction of the Universe/the Earth/East Grinstead in a series of increasingly-contrived battle extravaganzas.

if flawed, this film’s as good as anyone could realistically expect. It’s told by people who understand the team’s nature and appeal, and can bottle that and serve it to audiences new and fannish alike. It’s been a five-film wait. And it’s pretty much been worth it.

The presence of these two superb artists is enough to persuade me to pick up this extra issue of Marvel’s most frustrating super-team. Frustrating? I reckon that’s a fair way to describe a group containing some of Marvel’s most powerful, experienced and charismatic characters, which never hits the heights it should.

I’ve spent a good few years being quite cynical about Marvel’s ambitious plans for their superhero franchise in the cinema. Even if they did get made, they wouldn’t be any good. What is very pleasing about Captain America: The First Avenger is that none of these fears are realised.

This is one of the better .1 issues, on nearly every level. It introduces the characters, all of whom are pretty new to me, gives us some action, presents an interesting and ambiguous new character connected to the team, and presents some actual moral ideas for them to think about.

This is a rarety, a .1 issue that not only stands on its own and makes for a genuine jumping on point but also introduces a big plotline for the future, as well as being a pleasure to read on its own.

I’ve been scathing about and disappointed with some of these .1 ‘jumping-on point’ issues, and I’ve praised a couple highly. I think this is the first one that seems to lie somewhere in the middle.

This confused the hell out of me. The banner at the top, where we expect the title to be, says Ultimate Death of Spider-Man; at the bottom it says Avengers vs New Ultimates 1. Fortunately I didn’t have to work out what it was, since it’s by Mark Millar so an automatic buy for me. It’s a good thing that that was my reason, since there is no detectable connection to the upcoming death of Spider-Man.
