I'm not sure I'd like them that much though, I don't mind omnipotence/space-time manipulation, but I get a feeling that in DC and Marvel they get thrown around too much. It's what I think would happen to Toriko if it continued, seeing how the jumps in power and hax(even before the introduction of the Gourmet gods) where quite drastic at times.
"I can warp reality. Ha-ha! But I can warp it HARDER."
And breaking the 4th wall..don't like that either. Not sure, maybe if it was executed better.
Most of my knowledge about the comics comes from either movies or reading random wiki articles, like when I wanted to check who the strongest one is. And much like DBZ, every "god" article you open has a whole new set of "gods" above it.
For example you got Thanos who is really powerful, but oh wait he's nothing compared to Galactus, but oh wait, there's Life and Death and Love and Hate, but oh wait, there's Order and Chaos but that's not all, there's the Living tribunal but..wait, did they all just get wrecked by random aliens can come from another multiverse? What?
You got like 5 tiers above a godlike being, so what are they? Champion gods, Ultimate gods, Mega gods..are we in Digimon now? And obviously let's not forget the Author, who is, for an unknown reason, an existing entity within the comics.
Obviously that's only the high-end, and there are plenty of good ol' fights that got fists and spells and stuff flying around, but I still, at this moment, have a feeling that it would leave a really sour taste in my mouth.
I might be wrong and change my opinion completely if I actually went and read them. It's just that it's not a possibility at the moment with college and everything else I'm busy with. Would be easier if someone pointed me where and what to read, with all the different comics and universes flying around. Same goes for good manga, hard to find nowadays.
My friend, why did you not just say so? I find Ultimate Spider-Man from 2000 is a wonderful start for new readers since there's no historical baggage but still gives all the reader needs in terms of plotting, pacing, etc. It's sort of a learning course of some things you can expect from a superhero story. I'd recommend just heading to a local comic shop as it can use the cash, but http://readcomiconline.to/Comic/Ulti...ssue-1?id=7872 should work just as well.
If you want to read it of course. If you ever have any questions and such, let me know and I'll be happy to answer them.
I've been introduced to comics way before mangas, and I don't really like most shonen either. However, they still might've influenced me in a way that made me look at comics that way. Alternate timelines are also..uhh..mostly poorly executed I believe.
But again, I'm writing all of this without giving it a proper shot myself, so I might be completely wrong.
I'll be sure to give it a shot thanks to you, but it'll be put on hold for the moment, because I'm in the middle of exams.
