I Was "disassembled" To The "mth" Degree, Secretly Invaded And Now Am Under "siege"...

I have had mixed feelings here and there about different multiple "crossovers" that all tie together.  DC is famous for doing this.  Marvel has always done less.

Then.. enter Brian Michael Bendis stage left.  The guy got raked over the coals for "Avengers Disassembled," but if you look at this whole story line to only be the set up for what has been over 10 years of great storytelling you can't think that the guy is anything other than a genius.

A hero went crazy and rewrote the world -- literally.

Friends have come and gone and come back again.  An alien race not only tried to take over the world, but did so, well, in secret and the mastermind of their plan turned out to be someone we trusted all along, or so we thought.  A crazed not really reformed super villian becomes the world's top cop.  Nick Furty comes back with his typical swagger and you realize... just how much that character really does just deliver.  He makes James Bond look kind of like a prissy tool

We have seen the most unthinkable happen to... of all people... gods.  Bendis takes no prisoners in his attempt to tell the best stories possible.  Yes, it may take him a long time to set certain pieces in motion... but consider it the necessary foreshadowing for what is always a truly big reveal.

If you haven't caught up on Avengers Disassembled to House of M to Secret Invasion to Dark Reign to Seige... then it is time to get started.

I really liked World War Hulk and S.I. I am unsure, still what to think of the Siege stuff. But I have been really seeing the cause/effect stuff running through the Marvel Universe. e.g. Extremis armor, Illuminati, Elektra, etc.

sounds like I've been out of the comic scene for too long.....sounds exciting

personally, I hated Disassembled and House of M. It was just bad, boring semi-predictable story telling. Especially House of M. Meh.<br />

But Secret Invasion was brilliant and so Dark Reign and Siege.
