I stopped reading Marvel a while ago, and Bendis is a big factor in that. I really think in about two or three years he'll take an extended "hiatus" and never return.

I can't read anything Bendis writes with more than three characters in it, because they all "sound" exactly the same. Everybody, from Hawkeye to Dr. Doom to the Skrull Queen, has the same snarky/pissy personality, except for Spider-Man, whom is written basically as Woody Allen.

I'm going to say the same thing here that I said on demonoid:

"I like that first cover because it looks as if Doc Strange is putting the New Avengers out of our misery."

Oh god, the ending - I'm going with flat-out "stupid" myself - with a good bit of "racist" and "WTF!?" thrown in as well.

Max, just stop reading Marvel. Grant Morrison has just started a Batman & Robin series that he calls "The Adam West show combined with David Lynch", and it looks promising as hell.

Here's the min reason I still read books like this (Not all marvel books are bad, just way most); It is more fun to review bad stuff. I also review dollar box stuff and indie stuff from time to time.

I have an old habit of buying the two books I've followed my whole life (which is most of their lives) X-men and Avengers. Once upon a time that was two good books a month. Now it's twenty some odd mediocre and bad books.

It's like an old relationship gone bad.

Judging by the comments above my initial guess was wrong...
I would've bet dollars to dimes Bendis would be the new Sorcerer Supreme.

I'm only in my 20s, but I still loved that Patty Duke reference.

I used to watch the reruns on Nick At Nite.
