Posted on the RACMU (rec.arts.comics.marvel.universe) newsgroup by Magnus, Robot Fighter:
New Avengers #44: "While still assembling his team Captain America discovers a frozen Godzilla. After thawing him out they fight Red Ronin together.... emerging triumphant The Avengers debate keeping him on the team"
Iron Man: "Steve..." Cap: "Look Tony...." Iron Man: "Steve..." Cap: "Don't start Tony..." Iron Man: "This whole Red Ronin business..." Ronin: "What?" Spidey: "No. Red Ronin..." Ronin: "Did you say something?" Spidey (Lifts mask) "No. Red Ronin..." Ronin: "What?"
(Meanwhile Godzilla reads a paper in another room)
Iron Man: "Steve. Don't you see! Finding Godzilla...it was meant to be! Like when we found Wolverine..!" Wolverine: "What?" Cap: "....the hell. I thought finding Wolverine was like finding me. Iron Man: "It was" Cap: "But you said Godzilla was like finding Wolverine" Iron Man: "It is." Cap: "Soooo...finding Godzilla was like finding me?" Iron Man:"Yes." Cap: "The hell." Luke: "d**n."
Even people who try to suck in order to make fun of BENDIS! are still better than him.
Yeah Bendis' dialogue is as if you took a good script, put it into a paper shredder, and then pasted the pieces on a page in no particular order. It's one of the many reasons I stopped buying New Avengers
I was just cleaning out a closet and came across the first few New Avengers--at the time they came out I was anything but amused, but now I'm laughing out loud!!
I swear to GOD there are like thirty frames of Captain America pouting, with his little wings drooping as if to underscore his sadness--LOL!!! Okay bendis! We got it! Cap is sad!! LOL! And the whole Dr Strange thing, where he babbles gibberish for page after page and then just bellows "CHAOS MAGIC--THERE IS NO SUCH THING!!!!" as the Avengers stare like braindead zombies!!
