Doc Savage #2 (v1) : Where did the Son of the Feathered Serpent get the money for his fancy weapons from if not the city's gold stockpile? In which case, why did he need to kill Doc Savage? He could have just gradually stolen it.

Incredible Hulk #171 (v1) : - can someone please explain the Marvel obsession with making black people say, " weeeoh," "ooohweee" or any other variation?

- Not a good showing by Herb Trimpe

- I've also decided I don't like The Abomination, uninteresting and not really a challenge for Hulk

- Now Playing "Sweet Escape" Gwen Stefani w/ Akon

Russ Says:
Night Nurse #2 : I was very pleasantly surprised at how well this story was done. Strangely compelling plot, even if it was a little predictable and telegraphed after a few pages. It might've been even better if drawn out over a couple or three issues, but overall a nice job. I haven't read a bio on Jean Thomas (Roy's wife at the time, I believe) but has she seen some time in the medical field prior to writing this?

Also pretty cool to see continued character development and a carryover of a plot thread from the previous issue, to keep continuity flowing, but I'd like to see the nurses in more situations where husband-hunting or social status isn't such a focus.

3 stars, and thanks to @dadoodoflow's comment, I'll never be able to get "Helloooooo Nurse!" out of my head every time I read this book!

Fantastic Four #118b (v1) : I don't usually like "what it" stories but I thought this was excellent. The twist had a real Twilight Zone feel to it and I especially like that it fitted into the main story. Really well crafted.

Incredible Hulk #160 (v1) : Tiger Shark actually isn't a bad opponent for the Hulk; he's fast and wiry even out of water. It's like fighting Namor, except he has teeth. He isn't great as a regular opponent, but it worked well here.

So the general and Talbot are going to keep the Hulk's existence away from Betty? Good luck with that! Taking her on a drive is nice and all that, but they'd also have to keep her away from TV, radio, newspapers, the Internet; can you imagine the two of them trying to get Betty's smartphone from her? "But Glenn, I want to know how the Mets did last night!" "They won again, Betty; trust me on this." I'm looking forward to the realization once she finds out; no, it's not a spoiler, it's simply inevitable.

And speaking of which, Betty feels illicit? Did we just learn a side of Betty we couldn't have possibly imagined? Let's not tell the father of the bride!

3 stars. Nice little arc going here. But I can't wait until Betty finds out!

Russ Says:
Incredible Hulk #159 (v1) : This was a left-turn from what I was expecting. I think Gen. Ross just lost all his marbles here. The guy's made some head-scratching moves since that first gamma-bomb test, but making a deal with Abomination tops them all. Hulk or no Hulk, I have to wonder about our national security with guys like him in command.

Maybe the actual throw-down between Hulk and Abomination was brief, but it's one of the better ones I've seen them in so far. Both got some pretty good licks in, but I was looking for Abomination planning to go after Betty and Glenn in Niagara after the battle was over. The way Hulk punched him away near the end, he might do just that after all. But I was impressed with the way Hulk seemed to remember Betty as his love after his character development on Counter-Earth last issue. Quite an interesting turn.

3 stars, and waiting for Betty to learn who's back in town!

Katryn Says:
Fantastic Four #132 (v1) : The whole racial guilt thing felt really over-simplified to me, one big robot comes along and every single Inhuman is like, "Oh yeah, we're really not nice people"?
Also, I love that Johnny was nice over the break up even though it obviously pained him - and in fairness to Crystal, it's been a fair damn while since she was last with him if Franklin's growth is anything to go by, he's shown no signs before of joining her in the Great Refuge and she can't join him. Plus, the Torch had been considering dating other girls just before he went to find her.
One thing I hated was that Sue is being painted as the villain for walking out on the great Reed Richards. I can't help but lose respect for the others in the team that they don't just overlook how Reed treats Sue, they pretty much actively support it.

Iron Man #104 (v1) : Second issue Iron Man has kissed a woman wirth his mask on. Stop it!

What woman would want cold metal pressed against her? Or does the mouth part open up allowing him to kiss? I could see Stark designing something like that.

duncanm Says:
Jungle Action #22 (v2) : I have to disagree with Kez on this one. I thought the inclusion of the Black Panther in the alternate history did a really good job of both selling and explaining the juxtaposition between the imagination of someone that has lived a life of oppression and injustice so long that they've all but given up expecting different and the imagination of someone that is living in an age of hope and change, with a beacon of hope in her life.
Beyond the obvious big differences in the two stories, I loved the nuanced differences just as much. The different clothing style reflecting the ladies' ideas of "old fashioned poor". The much cleaner and healthier look of Caleb's family and home in the hopeful version. The fact that the names Hector and Joshua are used on the opposite white politician in each story, to denote how they, and hundreds like them at the time, were all the same to the point of being interchangeable.
Only reason I didn't rate it higher is that, as good as I felt it was, it didn't really do anything push the story forward or even give us character background. It more or less just gave us context for the rise of the KKK, which is something I was already painfully aware of.

Fantastic Four #17 Annual : I'm thinking back to that Interlude issue, which was a flashback. Terrax supposedly have 5 hours to live (unless I misread it) and was about to find and destroy the FF... but the have these other adventures, so there should be a way for Terrax to be alive.... ohhhhhhhh, never mind. #MarvelTime

-Ha! This is the issue I had as a kid that made me play house as Ghost Rider!* I only remember the “On My Face!” and the reveal, but not Spider-Man.

-*Editor’s Note: See Dastardly Dadoodoflow’s Daring Reveal of Childhood Shenanigans back in the comments section of Marvel Spotlight #5!

-I have no idea how to rate this. It’s barely two stars but figures prominently in my personal mythology (I’ll still give it two stars)

- Now Playing "Eyes Without A Face" Billy Idol (i may have used this one before, if so, and that disappoints you, go see the Franju film of the same name. That won't disappoint you!)

Russ Says:
Warlock #4 (v1) : Wow; definitely a huge improvement over the past five issues. Like the rest of you, I didn't see Eddie's death coming. That was pretty well done, along with Warlock opening up a can on Triax immediately afterwards. Nice job, Mike and Gil.

But up until that point, the artwork was still a little blocky and lacking perspective, while the story seemed a bit telegraphed and the dialog unnecessary at times. The series still needs a lot of improvement in execution, but things are headed in the right direction and Mike Friedrich has some good ideas for our wanna-be Golden Godling.

3 stars. Counter-DOOM should be fun! But so far, setting this on Counter-Earth as opposed to Marvel Earth still seems redundant to me. I'd like to see a storyline that makes a serious divergence from what we'd see on Marvel Earth.

X-Men #28 (v1) : This issue was fine, I suppose, from a plot perspective, but it was almost unreadable, dialogue wise. So much unnecessary, heavy handed exposition. Even with the introduction of Banshee, I can't bring myself to give it more than a 2.

Russ Says:
Warlock #3 (v1) : I also like the whole "Marvel Jesus" concept of Warlock and Counter-Earth. But this issue was disappointing; the fight didn't really convey the conflict over the "soul" of Counter-Earth very well. Gil Kane's artwork looked a little stiff too.

Some other notes....

King of the World: Warlock channeling his inner Titanic on the splash page!

Red and Gold Cheese: Adam getting struck by lightning when the High Evolutionary wants to chat. And he didn't even say "Shazam!"

Night At the Apollo: Have to admit, I didn't see the reveal coming, even though I should've seen it coming a mile away!

2 stars.

Iron Man #100 (v1) : Stark didn't really turn O'Brien over to the Avengers. Stark locked him up in his lab wearing only his underwear....but I agree he should have done something, besides "destroy" the rings. Mandy got off easy. I'm sure the rings will show up soon.

One of my favorite covers. It's simple, clean, eye catching and dynamic. I liked the way the Washington story wrapped up and to see that the Senator had some brains. This was a nice story arc for Iron Man.

The only thing I didn't like wa he next issue blurb.

Russ Says:
Incredible Hulk #158 (v1) : This wasn't the issue I thought it would be. I was expecting a nice little fracas at the wedding but it didn't happen. Phooey! But Talbot gets the prize he wanted, and Banner didn't have to die like he insinuated a few times in the past.

Other notes:

Work smarter, not harder: One thing just occured to me - if the Leader could mentally take over the Rhino because he was so "simple minded," why couldn't he have just taken over the Hulk and made him commit suicide or something?

RSVP: I guess the Leader was too busy trying to get his ship back (and stranding Hulk and Rhino on Counter-Earth in the process) to crash the Talbot wedding like he promised last issue.

Animal Magnetism: It would've been pretty cool if Rhino stayed on Counter-Earth and joined Kohbra's little band! But that was quite a body slam Hulk laid on him on pg. 17 pn. 3!

Mirror, mirror: So if Counter-Bruce made it to the bunker on time to avoid the gamma rays, I guess Counter-Reed got sufficient shielding for his rocket so nobody got hit with cosmic rays. Counter-Peter wasn't bitten by that spider. Counter-Tony never got shrapnel in his heart and wasn't captured by the Chinese. Counter Dr. Erskine failed at the Super Soldier Serum. And so on....

3 stars. Still pretty enjoyable though. However, I'd hate to be in Bruce's shoes when he gets back to Earth....

Jungle Action #20 (v2) : @Redsvetz Man, I wish I could be back there with you in early 2013, because mid 2017 these racially charged stories sure have regained their punch.
Thought this was a great, if heartbreaking, story. The juxtaposition of one man justifying his crusade for the truth and standing up for what is right amidst the dangers he faces by those that want him silenced with another man fighting physically against those that would use their power for evil purposes shows that there is more than one way to be a hero and more than one way to fight for what is right.

Incredible Hulk #157 (v1) : I agree, this one was fun to read! Looking forward to Wedding Crashers '72.

However, I just can't buy Jim and his weird way of talking. I understand they probably won't want to make him sound like stereotypical street, but the guy just yammers on and on. I'm almost wishing for Rick Jones to return. Also, what happened to his ride after he left him on the New Jersey Turnpike?

3 stars. I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around Glenn and Betty's upcoming wedding. It wasn't that long ago she and Bruce nearly tied the knot. Oh well, hope the Leader-Rhino at least picks up a gift for the betrothing couple.

JonahBlack Says:
Strange Tales #158a (v1) : Did the writing on this seem weird to anyone? That is, it read like most of the books of this time, but I felt like there was usually something different about Nick Fury. It was like Stan lost the tone of the book, or maybe the voice of the character (it read more like the Thing was in this fight). Or maybe he'd been trusting the artist more on this, and this time he was up to old tricks?

I had a hard time rating this book. I really liked the arc, and I loved the art. I liked the twist of having had the bomb the whole time, even if it was a bit (okay more than a bit) deus ex machina. However, the dialogue was distracting at best, and the mask thing was dumb.

In the end I gave it a four, mostly bolstered by the rest of the excellent arc. It got a boost for having a subtle call back to Fury's belt (It was supposed to be just for holding up his pants!)

(Something occurred to me and I had to come back and add this: Where did the extra eyepatch and monacle come for their disguises? I mean, maybe Strucker has a spare, but did Nick bring an extra eye patch?)

duncanm Says:
Jungle Action #19 (v2) : My theory about using "the Clan" on the cover would be that Marvel was afraid of either stores not stocking it or parents not allowing it to be bought if they knew the Klan were in the book. Heck, mid-70s I imagine there were still places that wouldn't stock it if they thought it was about a black man beating up the Klan.
For a story that is about fighting racism, which is of course awesome, that southern black family sure does feel all kinds of stereotypical.
Would love to see an adaptation of this arc in a Black Panther sequel. Just replace the Klan with the "alt-Right" and you're set.

Incredible Hulk #167 (v1) : - Pipes and cigars on a commercial flight, got to love the the 70s
- I wish I had been keeping count of all the times someone says "Ramrod" in the order. Was it a common word in the 60s and 70s? I have never heard it used as casually as it seems to be used in the Marvel Universe.
- Woah, Mad Betty! (Blam-a-lam)
- 5:6 looks like a classic Los Bros. Hernandez panel
- M.O.D.O.K., like Lockjaw, makes everything better
- If they are out in the reeds and swamps by the Meadowlands and Newark airport they are going to get some horrible disease
- Betty's eyes!
- Of course he Hulks out on her, thank Hermes that Roy Thomas isn't writing this
- Hulk leaves to pursue his passion for crumping (12:6)
- good issue

Doc Savage #7 (v2) : Good for a Doc Savage story. Kinda like saying it was pleasant for a root canal, but what can you do.
You know, next time I roll my eyes at how Batman is apparently an expert at everything, or how he always has the perfect thing on his utility belt, I'll just have to remember that the Doc did it first, and did it worse. I mean, he jumped out of a zeppelin and just did gymnastics to land safely.

Man-Thing #4 (v1) : - No Joke, Fool Killer is the most bat-guano crazy we've encountered in the order so far
- Fool Killer running them all down with the truck is pretty shocking (I was actually relieved to see that the flood refugees survived)

- That was a pretty spectacular arc

- I don't think I would have liked these as much as I do know even 10 years ago. As it is I think they are some of the craziest, borderline genius comics we've read yet. I'm just on this wavelength right now.

Strange Tales #157a (v1) : A friend, who is a Brazillian Jiu Jitsu Brown Belt, and I were mocking both the preponderance of heroes proclaiming Judo skills, and also Jack Kirby's complete lack of understanding of how Judo throws work. Looking at the page where Fury deals with 'plan K-11', I'm fairly sure Steranko at minimum glanced through a Judo book, because several of those throws look decent.

Marvel Team-Up #8 (v1) : Hoo-boy, another pile of stuff that belongs in the litter box. And the Cat had such promise, too....

It's almost as if Man-Killer was the embodiment of Marvel's unspoken belief in misogyny and why it should exist. It was a form of women's lib as seen through a fun-house mirror. Nah, that's almost dignifying the story.

1 star. The Cat deserved a lot better during this initial run of her character.

The Cat #4 : Ugh....yeah, I hate to say it, but this one was a bunch of bull; the type that belongs in the litter box all covered up! Got any more bags of Gritty Kitty, Greer?

Final series grade: C-. There was a good premise here; but maybe it could've sold more with better individual stories. Spending several pages an issue on recaps didn't help matters. Nor did the very cheesy dialog; clearly not Linda Fite's strong suit here.

1 star for this issue. This one was just filler. We get one more appearance by the Cat in Marvel Team-Up #8, then an extended break before Greer's story really takes off.

Iron Man #94 (v1) : Kraken actually had a decent plan. He knew he couldn't beat him so he got leverage, not bad. He figured out who Iron Man was. But If he was so smart, how did Tony sneak into his base and get his armor back. That and the last panel I didn't like. Tony is not that sneaky.

Some good ideas here, but completely wasted on a boring story

Amazing Spider-Man #185b (v1) : I can't exactly put my finger on it - I like Wolfman's attempt to shake this book up a little, with the MJ proposal and kind-of breakup, the return of Betty, Peter finally graduating college (it's been what, 13 years?). But none of these things were executed well. They're all rushed, with Betty just throwing herself at Peter from the first second, or the proposal out of nowhere, or Peter graduating despite not even thinking about school for the last few issues.

I wish Wolfman had tried to pick up where Wein left off, and then built to his own direction, instead of just making a sharp turn.

Amazing Spider-Man #243 (v1) : I actually gave this one 5 stars because of the big decision.

The story itself, however, left a lot to be desired. Commander Kraken just kinda seemed to be there. And no explanation for Belag and those aliens(??) Maybe I didn't read it thoroughly enough, but I just didn't get the point.

2 stars. Looks like no fish dinner for this kitty.

Hero for Hire #7 : Well, this one didn't really win me over but it was much better than I expected. Granted, I'm not really certain of the logic behind Marley's actions; he found a "test subject" in Luke, allowed him to prove himself the way he wanted, but went ahead with his plan to detonate that bomb anyway. Like Luke stated, the guy was nuts.

I liked the interplay between Luke and Claire. Looks like she's forgiven him for the last page from last issue. I was hoping that little incident would be played for a comedic moment and not carried over as a plot thread for several issues on end.

3 stars. The plot execution was a little clunky in places, but it was a nice issue overall.

Marvel Mystery Comics #37b :
  • That's my line – "H-how are going to navigate?" "Use the stars! Your fuehrer seems to believe in them!" (Nazi captain and Namor)

Daredevil #98 (v1) : Well, it was going to be trickery of some sort for a sorely under-powered Daredevil to get out of this one. Although it was planned that Dark Messiah was going to wig out, what if it hadn't worked?

I'm almost tempted to buy @Locust75's explanation about Natasha and her injuries. Or at least, it's what Marvel was thinking even if they wouldn't come out an admit it. Marvel has really treated her badly since the start of her Amazing Adventures run, and it seems like the billing she has in this book is more cosmetic than anything.

2 stars. The arc might've been more entertaining if Uriah the illusionist had made Daredevil meet Mike Murdoch!

Tomb of Dracula #8 (v1) : This issue was flawed but fun. Having Quincy call for help every time the group gets trapped smacks a little deus-ex-machina-ish, but the story was still a little riveting and Dracula actually had a solid plan going. However, as one commenter suggested last issue, if Dracula rids humans in favor of the undead, what will be their source of food? Animal blood probably doesn't have the nutrients vampires need, let alone that satisfying aftertaste.

The highlight of the issue had to have benn that bat-fight; that was downright awesome! We all knew Mortte had to lose, and the group will never know that he prevented Drac from raising the dead. So were all those zombies vampires? If a vampire is killed, could be have been raised by that machine? Makes it even harder to kill vampires if true, but fortunately with the machine destroyed, it's all moot.

3 stars. Now we're just waiting for Quincy and Rachel to serve Drac a nice fancy stake and garlic dinner!

I mean the revolution of the planet around its sun would make it impossible for me to predict the planet's location, let alone adding the drift of the galaxy itself through space.

Also, didn't it say in the last issue that this planet is on the edge of Skrull space, not "deep within the mysterious Skrull galaxy" as the splash page says?

Fantastic Four #89 (v1) : I don't understand why the Mole Man is being pushed as an effective villain. His weakness is light. I could incapacitate him with a Mag-Lite.

Also, they should not stay in the house. Without an established history, they would have no idea how dangerous the house could be. There may be more traps that are more cleverly hidden (I know, the Mole Man isn't clever, but still), black mole, asbestos in the walls, or a haunted swamp nearby.

Was not aware that Rocket came from 10,000 (at least) years in the future. Kinda adds a new dimension to him. Though yes, I knew from other mediums that he's somehow British.

Marvel Preview #7a : Jeez, I've got to echo the love for the art here. Nearly Alex Ross like in places, almost photorealistic, which is an amazing thing for black and white pencils. Unfortunately Alcazar only has a couple of appearances in the order.
Really warmed up to the story as well, though it started out unnecessarily confusing. Like, was her family created to be murdered, or did they never exist at all and it was just an implanted memory? One would think that would be a risk since if she went to the cops looking for answers she'd find out it wasn't real, not to mention not seeing anything in the news. The jump of days at a time didn't really help either.
Despite all this, story was still compelling, and the ending was something that both made sense but that I didn't think of. Wonder if Judith at all remains a part of Satana's story or if she simply existed for this one issue.

Machine Man #2 (v1) : I actually said to myself on issue one of this "I wonder how long it will take Kirby to bring aliens into this book" and the answer is 2 issues. Can't say I am surprised.

X-Men #110 (v1) : It it interesting to me that bad x-men stories at this point still feel miles ahead of some of the middle ground stuff in other mags.

Ghost Rider #31 (v2) : This new ghost rider with eyeballs is just, insanely unsettling.

Avengers #117 (v1) : - Bob Brown obviously enjoyed getting to be Hal Foster for a little bit

- Did The Swordsman kill the guy? Is that going to be a problem with The Avengers?

- That's how you STOM a guy Cap!

- It makes sense that it would be Cap and Subby who make the breakthrough

Defenders #9 (v1) : - OMG, Clint! You can't do that. I remember Hawkeyes being brash but he is a completea**so far in the order.

- What the hell, did Roy Thomas write this? Of course, she kind of likes it...(rolls eyes)

- It has been a long time since we read any Iron Man, not that I'm really looking forward to it, but I can't remember what Tony was up to (was it the fire hippy arc?)

Avengers #31 (v1) : At this point I'm skipping Daredevil, most of Hulk, and quite a few X-Men issues. While Iron Man, Thor, Sub-Mariner, Spider-Man, and the Fantastic Four remain my favorites. S.H.I.E.L.D, Captain America, and Dr Strange are tolerable but not great. Then we have the Avengers, which seems to be almost always bad but they are so iconic it feels wrong to skip them... and occasionally they have a good issue in there.

Daredevil #97 (v1) : I remember my sister owning a cassette tape player in the early '70's, so she could tape songs off the radio. Of course, I didn't realize they had actually gone commercial in Europe as early as the mid '60's. In fact, the Rolling Stones actually recorded a couple of songs for the Beggars Banquet album (1968) using cassette tape for a deliberate lo-fi sound.

Russ Says:
Daredevil #97 (v1) : This Dark Messiah character is really off-the-wall in a Daredevil comic. So off-the-wall, I actually found it entertaining, even if I haven't quite gotten the point behind his actions just yet. But, let's give this one a chance and see where it goes.

And to take @duncanm's comment a step further, I wonder if the writers and editorship felt the same way about Natasha, even though she's been given cover billing in this book; just a second rate character. She deserves better; I find it refreshing each time she reiterates her importance. Shouldn't be too much longer before she either gets treated like an equal partner, or she takes a hike.

3 stars. Dark Messiah kind of reminds me of a psychotic Doc Savage, or the wacky nephew of Adam Warlock.

Avengers #116 (v1) : - 15:6 is one of my favorite panels ever, "Too much in love!"

- Bob Brown is as bland as his name, too bad. He gets to draw Silver Surfer vs. Vision fighting in an exploding volcano and really doesn't take advantage.

- Now Playing "Lava" The B-52s

Amazing Spider-Man #182 (v1) : I give Wolfman credit for making such a bold move at the beginning of his run on this book, but it would have had much more impact if he'd built up to it over a few issues.

But what is with the over-scripting? The constant thought bubbles for both Spidey and Rocket Racer were way too much and took away from the action. It reminded me of early Conway.

Sub-Mariner Comics #7a :
  • Namor's calves seem ridiculously small on that splash page!

  • Speaking of ridiculous, the sea-monster with angry eyes and pointy nose would fit perfectly in the Looney Tunes! And so would that hammer-head shark!

  • Wow! Well this story was weird!

Sub-Mariner Comics #7c :
  • That's my line – "What the...? A man screaming 'round the bend!" (Namor on the Mississippi) – Somehow, it got me laughing when I pictured him saying this with a southern accent.

  • That's my line too – "Now take deep breath and start exhaling the truth!" (Namor to a prisoner) – I gotta use this one someday.

  • That's my final line – "Well, boys, say something! The least you can do is inviting me in" (Namor to three long-dead men) – I don't know if I just wasn't paying attention, but in this story, if feels like Namor has a lot of great one-liners.

  • Not only do I find unlikely that Sub-Mariner could get away being caught in a bear trap without a scratch, but it is even harder to believe a normal human would survive this deadly device snapping around your neck.

  • Very entertaining story nevertheless.

Fantastic Four #85 (v1) : What is it with dictators destroying their own people on a whim? It seems like it would be bad for the country in the long run, and bad for the dictator in the short run. "Hello, general. What was that? Your daughter was in the house when it blew up. Oops, sorry about that."

Marvel Super-Heroes #20 (v1) : Good character study for Doom. I wish we could get treatments like this for some of the other villains. Maybe we will in the future.

To Doom I say: It is said that women look for more in a man than his physical appearance. Maybe you should try to reach her.

Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.... : The Hate-Monger again? Shouldn't he be in jail or SHIELD detention?

Also, yes you should fear the music of the new generation. Not because they are all brain-washed and will kill the older generation if given half a chance, but because of AutoTune. Learn to sing on your own, you lazy bums!

Captain America #13 (v3) : I don't like the art, or Cap's shield, but I like the story. I don't like the idea of Steve becoming involved in politics, and I hope he changes his mind. And I don't trust this Bolt guy at all.
I liked this quote from Shannon: "I swear, sometimes when you talk, I hear the National Anthem."

Thor #160 (v1) : I like the Recorder. He is a fun character to have around.

Galactus is an interesting villain, because he is just doing his thing. I do understand why the inhabitants of the planets he eats would find him to be less than noble, but I also see that the ants think the aardvark is less than noble. He's just doing his thing.

Still, he needs to be taken down.

Marvel Two-in-One #26 : I don't get it. Wasn't Deathlok sent to his past (aka the current 616) just last issue? Then why did the bad guys need a time machine to bring him here? And how do they even know about Deathlok? Hopefully all this gets answered next ish.

X-Men #57a (v1) : Seriously, people in the comics need to take some seminars on communication.

Daredevil #52 (v1) : While, I do like Saxon as a villain, I just don't care for comics that center almost entirely around combat.

This is my most consistent complaint about the comics I've been reading (I started at the beginning of the main 616 universe and am working my way through). A number of the comics just introduce a villain and have the hero fight him until one can't move. Pretty boring in my opinion.
