    Judging by all the A+X sitting on the shelves around here (and i mean HUGE piles), I'll be amazed if it's still in the top 50 by #3.

    You feel comfortable saying that based on Uncanny Avengers' performance? Poppycock.

    Let's check back in six months, after three or so issues have actually hit the shelves.

    You know that people have to buy something before they can review and criticize it, right?

    Not to mention that people buying the other 11 issues aren't just going to stop at 11.

    Dc just needs better stories instead of dumb stunts like variant covers.
    Dc also needs more team books to compete with marvel's avengers and x-men. The new JLA is a step in the right direction but the jla lineup is still quite weak and might just go the way of the old detroit justice league.
    My suggestions for more team books are : new mutant book led by mutant Adam Blake, reboot Legion into the 21st century (start with the earthling Legionnaires like Karate Kid, Colossal Boy, Invisible Kid Lyle Norg, Sun boy since earthlings seem more popular), Wildcats, Blood Syndicate, Gen 13.
    Many of the old earth 2 Infinity Inc and younger Justice Society members might also be salvaged for the main earth like what was done for Geoff's favorite character based on his dead sister. The current earth 2 title is on a different earth and is just quite irrelevant.

    Yeah, a little surprised to see A+X so high on the list. I suspect that is the case of retailed misjudging interest more than a reflection of what is actually out there. And Uncanny Avengers had so many variants and incentives, that it would have been a shocker if it didn't top off the list.

    Also, calling all of MarvelNOW! a success based on the wildly successful launch of two Avengers books seems a bit pre-mature. Lets wait and see what it does for those books that would have struggled without a marketing push behind it.

    Actually, the problem is that Marvel hardly has any solo books. Aside from Spiderman, the entire Marvel U is basically Avengers or X-Men.

    Way to bog down your entire franchise...

    Besides, if you think Earth 2 is an "irrelevant" book, then you clearly have no idea what you're talking about.
