    The Super Powered Fancast

    The Story: Aaron delivers a fantastic story filled with great action and adventure throughout. I love the surprises throughout the issue and was impressed with not only how the story progresses, but the twists and turns it takes throughout. There is a lot of tension in the story and I cannot wait to see what happens when the surprise is revealed when it comes to Earth. The Art: Garron delivers some stunning visuals throughout the issue. The story is action packed and Garron manages to bring all the emotion and tension to the reader visually with great art.

    Either Doom Supreme or writer Jason Aaron have forgotten about Marvels' branching timelines system or the ultra-powerful scientist/mage can override it.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    Avengers #63 is the second part of Jason Aaron's Avengers Assemble storyline where the Avengers and Multiversal Masters of Evil finally fight it out. The art from Javier Garron looks good and the action scenes are fine, but there's not much more than that. Aside from one or two fights, the battle between the Avengers teams and the cosmic Masters of Evil just doesn't have as much kick to it.

About the Author: Jason Aaron

Jason Aaron (born January 28, 1973) is an American comic book writer, known for his creator-owned series Scalped and Southern Bastards, as well as his work on Marvel series Ghost Rider, Wolverine, PunisherMAX, Thor, and The Avengers.

Early life

Jason Aaron was born in Jasper, Alabama. His cousin, Gustav Hasford, who wrote the semi-autobiographical novel The Short-Timers (1979), on which the feature film Full Metal Jacket (1987) was based, was a large influence on Aaron. Aaron decided he wanted to write comics as a child, and though his father was skeptical when Aaron informed him of this aspiration, his mother took Aaron to drug stores, where he would purchase comic books from spinner racks, some of which he still owned as of 2012.

Aaron graduated from Shelby County High School. He then attended the University of Alabama at Birmingham, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in English.

Career

Aaron’s career in comics began in 2001 when he won a Marvel Comics talent search contest with an eight-page Wolverine story script. The story, which was published in Wolverine #175 (June 2002), gave him the opportunity to pitch subsequent ideas to editors. In 2006, Aaron made a blind submission to DC Comics’s imprint Vertigo, which became his first major work, the Vietnam War story The Other Side. The Other Side was nominated for an Eisner Award for Best Miniseries, and Aaron regards it as the “second time” he broke into the industry. Following this, Vertigo asked him to pitch other ideas, which led to Scalped, a creator-owned series with artist R. M. Guéra set on the fictional Prairie Rose Indian Reservation.

In 2007, Aaron wrote Ripclaw: Pilot Season for Top Cow Productions. Later that year, Marvel editor Axel Alonso, who was impressed by The Other Side and Scalped, hired Aaron to write issues of Wolverine, Black Panther and eventually, an extended run on Ghost Rider that began in April 2008. In January 2008, he signed an exclusive contract with Marvel, though it would not affect his work on Scalped. In July of that year, he wrote the Penguin issue of Joker’s Asylum.

After a four-issue stint on Wolverine in 2007, Aaron returned to the character with the ongoing series Wolverine: Weapon X, launched to coincide with the feature film X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Aaron commented, “With Wolverine: Weapon X we’ll be trying to mix things up like that from arc to arc, so the first arc is a typical sort of black ops story but the second arc will jump right into the middle of a completely different genre.” In 2010, the series was relaunched once again as simply Wolverine. He followed this with the relaunch of The Incredible Hulk in 2011 and Thor: God of Thunder in 2012. Aaron and artist Mike Deodato collaborated on the Original Sin limited series in 2014. In 2018, Aaron relaunched Thor with Mike del Mundo and The Avengers with Ed McGuinness. In addition to his work on Marvel characters, Aaron wrote a year-long run on the Conan the Barbarian series after Marvel regained the licensing rights to the character in 2019.

At the 2019 San Diego Comic Con, it was announced that Aaron’s Thor storyline which depicted Jane Foster acquiring the mantle of the Thunder God would be the basis for the 2022 film Thor: Love and Thunder.

Personal life

Aaron moved to Kansas City, Kansas in 2000, the day after the first X-Men feature film was released.

Aaron is a passionate and well known fan of the Alabama Crimson Tide football team.

Commenting on the religious themes that run through his work, Aaron says he was raised Southern Baptist, but has since renounced religion:
I’ve been an atheist for many years, but I’ve remained fascinated by religion. If anything, I’ve become more fascinated by religion and faith after I lost mine.”
