    Looking up at what I've just written it almost seems like I've got an ax to grind when it comes to Chuck Austen, but I honestly can say I've never met the man, and frankly I agree with him that there are fans who can be too caught up in what's gone on before that they instantly reject anything new that is brought to the table (and yes I'll even admit to being part of this group of fans when it comes to certain characters). However, my problems with Chuck Austen's work are far more deep rooted, as frankly his writing is fundamentally flawed. The actions of his cast are driven solely by the needs of the writer, and not the story, and the plots he serves up range from plot by numbers predictable, to downright goofy, with this issue's adventure falling firmly in the latter category. He's a bad writer who embraces half-baked ideas, and I'm horrified by the prospect that he seems to be in the good graces of the higher ups at Marvel. For god sakes Tom Brevoort, keep him away from the Avengers Read Full Review
