Secret Invasion #8: Brian Bendis trods on the Wasp

Oh, I'm sure he didn't actually kill Janet VanDyne. After all, Marvel's strategy for avoiding a real backlash seems to be that as long as they only subject their cast of characters to a fate worse than death, they'll be able to get away with plenty. But for now, that's what the finale to the time-wasting Secret Invasion seems to advertise, that Janet has perished, all for the sake of motivating other heroes to fight back.

Regardless of whether she's dead or alive, a Skrull or a human, the steps taken here have no point, are insulting, and are no better than when Bendis beat up on Scarlet Witch 4 years ago.

Predictably, this crossover was just a lead in to yet another - Dark Reign. I won't be wasting my time on that either, and now that I think of it, if Jan's been slighted even without being killed, no need to provide any readership to Mighty Avengers.

And Tony Stark is still depicted badly.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
