The Better Times by perpetual-insomniac The Better Times by perpetual-insomniac
Mention Hank Pym in comics circles, and everyone just goes "oh yeah, the guy who flipped out and hit his wife that one time". But he was hardly the only hero to have a breakdown like that, and aside from that incident, he and Janet had a generally good marriage.

AAH. Finished picture! First one in what feels like ages. I've been profoundly uninspired.

Nice picture! Sure, Hank's not perfect but neither is Jan, or anyone else. But they are truly heroic and super.

I really despise Bendis for what he did to them.

He dredged up an old plot that had been resolved YEARS ago.   (A frustrated Hank just lost it and he hit Jan once. ONLY once. And he faked an attack to show the Avengers he still had what it takes to be one.  Hank was thrown out. Jan divorced him.  Eventually Hank redeemed himself and became an Avenger again.  He and Jan were getting along fine too. They didn't remarry but they were a couple again. Or at least seeing each other.  It's been years since I read a Pre-Bendis)  Bendis comes along and  brings up the "wife-beater" plot, breaks them up, has Jan sleeping with Hawkeye and, well, just stuff I hated. 

 

I've been reading the Avengers non-stop since the Beast first joined up wayyy back when.  We are talking decades here.  Thick and thin. High and low.   Bendis shows up and I wind up dropping them like used toilet paper.  That's how strongly I dislike his so called style.

 

I don't know the man. But as a writer of comic books I can't STAND the man. Everything he touches turns to crap as far as I'm concerned.  Some people like him.  God knows why.   But I don't and never will.  Not as a writer of comic books at any rate.

It is indeed great to find other people who see Bendis for the hack he truly is .
