Jump the Shark,
Fin-flippin'-tastic assessment!As an alternate, you could've used the "WTF?" cats.
What? Dude, you're on crack. That issue was awesome.
Yes. Awesome. 5 issues of pointless Ninja battle for an event that took place over about 5 minutes.Now THAT is decompression.
To be fair... that was a lot of Ninjas. Are there usually that many Ninjas? 'Cause that was a lot of Ninjas. Lots.Of Ninjas.
Y'know what I thought it needed?More ninjas.
Ninjas used to be awesome. Time was just one ninja could take out the Avengers or the JLA. Nowadays Aunt May with one hand tied behind her back suffering through a heart attack could beat an army of thousands of ninjas.
Yeah, but Aunt May is an ex-Herald of Galactus. Hardly surprising that she can handle a few sneaky guys wearing pajamas. Power Cosmic trumps shurikens any day of the week.That Golden Oldie stuff *was* retconned back in during Civil War, right?
Dugg and seconded!Sorry but whe whole 'reveal' in that book was bs. I hope this isn't what The Initiative story line turns into. It's like a bad scooby doo plot.
Sleestak,Isn't there some rule that, the more ninja you face, the more inept they become? In other words; one ninja? Supremely awesome and dangerous. Scads of ninja? Better off investing in lawn sprinklers or doorstops.As to the book, yeah, big whoop. Let's see how long it takes Marvel to mess this one up, too.Take it and run.
Ooops, above comment is mine.Take it and run.
I agree with the fish.... the big reveal was utter crap. It's even worse than the whole civil war farce.
earl?I've never seriously thought about the inverse correlation between the abundance of ninjas to their effectiveness before. Awesome observation. And *Sooo* true!
Five issues of pointless ninja battles? Did you miss the Captain America subplot, the team formation, and the stuff with Ronin. Also, is action suddenly a bad thing in comics? I seem to remember people complaining about not enough action.Plus, these are Hand ninjas, the undead. People like Cage, Ronin, and even Spider-man don't really have a problem with 'killing' them so that makes for a much easier battle.
