AndronicusVII Posted January 16, 2020 Report Share Posted January 16, 2020 I've been reading Marvel's Savage Avengers. It's kind of become "Conan the Barbarian runs amok in the Marvel Universe." This has engendered some mixed feelings in me. When I started seeing the fantasy Conan stuff being made by Marvel I was unimpressed. It wasn't bad or anything. It just didn't feel new or creative. It felt pretty same old to me. Then Savage Avengers came out. They move Conan into the modern Marvel universe. He starts out in the Savage Land and eventually (as of this writing) winds up in Latveria. He hangs out with various Marvel characters, often to hilarious effect, and there is lots of fun carnage. On the one hand I do enjoy seeing Conan in a new environment. He is not played as a moron (thank heavens), and seeing him rub shoulders with people like Wolverine and Dr Doom. In particular I want to praise the dinner scene with Dr Doom. There are also some genuinely funny moments. However, I will also admit that the whole concept is rather ridiculous, and the whole thing has a cartoonish vibe to it. So I do enjoy it, but unlike the Dark Horse run, there's no chance of me taking it seriously. I was wondering how everyone else felt. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
