Oh, Tye is in Spielberg's new film? Awesome! And he's got Dark Phoenix coming up, so he's on a roll.

I just finished the 2012 comic series Avengers vs X-Men. Most of it was horrible and the worst thing they did was totally destroy the character of Scott Summers. It's like the writers of series started out with the prime objective of making people hate Scott. It seems Marvel has spent much of this century trying to make Scott as hated as possible, so much so that they had to kill off the character and bring in a new teenage version from another reality.

Numerous other elements of the series seem crazy too. As a snapshot of where the Marvel universe was in 2012 it's bewildering. Doctor Strange, Wolverine, Spider Man, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and the Thing are on the Avengers. Wtf? Not in my wildest dreams back in the '80s or '90s would I ever have predicted Marvel would ever put those characters on the team. The most emphatically don't belong on the team. That they were on it is a sign of how much Marvel has lost its way. Similarly, they have Wolverine fighting AGAINST the X-Men for the Avengers. I never thought I'd see the day. What a load of nonsense. It's bonkers. Marvel has gone haywire.

Oh yeah, and Namor the Submariner is an X-Man. Wtf? I suppose I should have expected that ever since they reinvented him as an X-mutant, but that whole business is bull.

The X-Men in general get a lot of vilification in this comic series. You're encouraged to root for the Avengers aganst them. I guess it reflects the way Marvel turned against the X-franchise because Fox held the rights to the movies. Back in my day, the X-Men and related groups/characters were the central part of Marvel's business. The Avengers were small fry beside them. Marvel has really gone wrong.

Wow, you just finished it now?

I agree, I hated what they did to Scott in that. But look at what they're doing to Captain America with this Secret Empire bull It's just par for the course for Marvel. And yeah, they really overplayed Namor's "first mutant" thing, even though Apocalypse was the first mutant.

Marvel didn't use to do this crap.

Actually Selene is supposed to be the first mutant now. 20,000 years old or something.
