Why I’m Not Buying Avengers Arena (and Why You Shouldn’t Either If You are a Fan of the Characters)
It’s tempting to buy it, certainly, as it features a number of characters I am a fan of including The Runaways and the cast of Avengers Academy. But here’s the thing…the series has promised the deaths of characters as they are pitted against each other by Arcade. Therefore, the longer the series runs the more deaths are going to happen. So if you are a fan of a character like, say, Darkhawk, your best bet for the character’s survival is for the series to be cancelled before they get around to killing him.
So I have decided not to purchase the series, and if you have favorites in the cast of the book, you might think about doing the same.
Am I wrong? Responses are welcome.
