Comments: Because the Occupy movement was such a success ...

I laugh my ass off when I heard about this title and I was like "Um aren't they nearly 4 years late?" Seriously I said something similar like that when I heard they are making the Movement "Wait aren't they like 2 years late?" Seriously!? What is wrong with this picture here? Oh yeah they are calling it "Occupy Avengers" and what is the point of calling it that when these are more street level heroes? When I think Avengers I think "Infinity Gauntlet," "Under Seige," "Assault on Olympus," "Celeste Madonna," and "Council of Krangs" not the Avengers fighting corrupt politicians, drug kingpins, or serial killers I mean these things have been in Avengers stories but not the main point of the books. Those type of stories were the focus of Daredevil, Spider-Man, Moon Knight, or Luke Cage would deal with. Why not create a new team or use an old team name to come up with this more down to Earth hero team? It is obvious of course just for the Avengers name and trying to get more money from like a small group of Marvel zombies who buy all the Marvel books even the ones no one gives a crap about and unlike some hidden gems these books are not given the time of day for a reason.

Well, since Walker is so concerned about the evils of corporate entities, at what point will the Occupy Avengers travel to Marvel HQ and demand the editors return Jack Kirby's original artwork to his family?

Do you remember a few years back when DC did that Superman: Grounded storyline? This seems like those issues JMS wrote before giving up on in partway through: heroes just wandering around and lecturing whoever they come across. Excitement! Who needs to see Avengers 3 when they can just pick up this "exciting" comic?

@SpideyTerry what is funny technically that can happen in the Marvel Universe seeing as Marvel exists there as they do in real life XD
I always thought it would be interesting if a character went to the real world and saw how much the writers fuck up there life. It would be so freaking depressing.
