She won't stay dead, but I'm pretty sure as far Bendis is concerned he killed her.

Nah. Emma just brain zapped her. Dazzler's going to be a regular in this book and the new Longshot book.

Read Nova: Nova Corps. This was on the short side, but a nice read. I'm liking the initial five recruits brought in by Worldmind, and the story with Worldmind himself kind of losing it has been pretty interesting. I'm looking forward to seeing where it goes since it looks like it will be a part of War of Kings.

Up through issue 21 of DD thanks to Marvel Unlimited.  (Glad I didn't jump on them the day they went to $1.99 on Comixology like I almost did).  At this point I'll probably start catching up one issue a week, though that won't start til next Wed. due to a heavy buy on the 7th.  (Avengers, AvAI, Invincible Universe and Robo all at once.)

I just figured Dazzler was just poisoned. This will be like her 3 "death" this year.

Anywho, loving Thor, tho I wish they finish the God Killer storyline. And Ultimate Spider-Man is great as well.

Pretty sure the God Killer story finishes up next issue.

Characters I wish were appearing somewhere (and aren't, as far as I can tell from google):

 

Quicksilver

Finesse

Quasar

Any of the Starlin/Batista Spaceknights 

The Captain (with pajamas)

And apparently Pietro, at least, has turned up again.

Avengers AI reads much better than the first issue. I will definitely be sticking with it, though the art still isn't to my taste.

I bet we see Finesse in the Gage Arena issue

Superior Foes of Spider-Man #1 was the best thing I've read in a while. Minor league super villains, presented in an Elmore Leonard-type narrative. Great stuff. Can't wait to get the second issue today.

 

Have any other Marvel freaks out there seen this site putting the whole continuity in a reading order? This has got to be like the Mount Everest of comic-geek endeavors (I've got a Marvel Unlimited subscription and I'm about 1/3 into 1963 myself.)

One thing I don't like about Bendis is that he uses a lot of "body language" in his stories, and I'm absolutely terrible at interpreting it.  In Guardians of the Galaxy,  are we supposed to think that the sex between Gamora and Tony was mindblowing and now Tony is upset by Gamora's coldness, or was the sex supposed to be cold and mechanical and now Tony is upset about that?

I find it hard to believe TONY STARK would get upset over either. He's the 2nd biggest poon hound in comics. Slightly behind Matt Murdock. And I only put Murdock ahead because his sexin' seems to drive so many women to insanity or death.

I read it as he had no idea what he was in for and she broke his soul.

Also: Bendis's Guardians is awful.

So what it goes Matt Murdock, Tony Stark and Dick Grayson? Or we talking just Marvel? I mean Wolverine pretty much has slept with just about everyone

Seriously, Dick always ends up with someone. He even got raped by the female version of Tarantula!

Are we presuming Bruce never actually slept with: vicki vale, silver st cloud, etc? He certainly slept with Talia and Selina in continuity.

Also, Hal Jordan, also went through his share of girlfriends, in addition to Carol Ferris.

Gotta add Clint Barton to the list. He's banged a ton of ladies.

I don't chime in on comics much because I'm so sporadic when it comes to reading them, but this is exactly how I read your post.

Bendis is wildly inconsistent.  Alias, Daredevil, Ultimate Spider-man, Ultimate Comics Spider-Man...  All legitimately great work.

Indeed. His Guardians run is crap, though. He has no feel for the characters at all.

The only thing I really like about Bendis' Guardians run is Star Lord's Dad.
