Congratulations, Complex Magazine. By running an article that claims to announce the 10 Worst Comic Books of 2012, you’ve guaranteed yourself attention and almost inevitable outcry from those who enjoyed said comics – especially when the list includes something like Avengers Vs. X-Men:
Though it’s always entertaining to see the heroes go at it, this book was 12 issues of overblown story decisions, terrible characterizations, and shallow shocks to boost sales. Cyclops and Captain America were written so inconsistently from their personalities over the years that they felt like strangers in this series. It’s as if they only acted a certain way to fit the plot around them. Cyclops’ sudden change, in particular, threw away years of characterization so the story had a villain to root against.
Pretty much agreed on The Savage Hawkman, mind you.
