Wedons Astonishing X-Men run had Ord of the Breakworld. It was the first appearance of Ord. Who was a great villain. Ord came to Earth to destroy mutants and stop them from destroying his planet. He used technology from his planet and used Colossus to go after mutants. John Cassady did the art. After Whedon left it was written by Warren Ellis.
Ah, I don't think I read those, the one I was thinking of is the Grant Morrison run which was epic!!!!
The Captain America films Winter Soldier and Civil War are by far the best MCU films. Followed up by Guardians. I liked the Avenger's .It was a little too Disney. It should of been more serious like the books. It does a good job of showing how much of an asshole Iron Man is. He created most of the villains and problems, then tells the team they're bad because of the way they fight Starks enemies. I loved seeing Cap knock the sh*t out him.
I would love to see The Ultimates (Didn't Whedon write the first few issues?) turned into films, they are so much darker than the current films and probably one of my fave Marvel books I have read.
Whedon really shouldn't of been blamed for JL. He was brought in at post production and for reshoots. The majority of that movie was still Zack Snyder.
Yeah, It was more the studio that didn't like the dark and gritty route it was going down, so they wanted Snyder to tone it down, and eventually sacked him.
Anyway, I am more DC than Marvel and I hope one day, we will see a series of films that can rival what Marvel has done! Also, I do like topcow stuff, from Darkness to Witchblade! I would love to see that sh*t turned into film someday!
