And the real reason Civil War is late:

They realized the 'twist' ending had been done before.

Now show Ron Lim some love, Brian. From Infinity War #2, "Ethereal Revisionism" Written by Jim Starlin, pencils by Ron Lim, inks by Alan Milgrom.

And in the next panel we see Daredevil grinning sheepishly and saying "Heh, sorry about that Dr. Richards! The old "radar sense" must not be as sharp as it used to be!"

Then Thor bonks him on the head with Mjolnir, because comics need more Thor bonking people with Mjolnir.

And you're right about Lim. I didn't know the name to go with the art, but I did like his stuff on Silver Surfer.

Sadly, going off of his recent work on Cable and Deadpool #29, Lim's artwork isn't as striking as it used to be.

I was surprised by just how little his art looked like the stuff he used to do in the 90's, but then again, I don't think I've read a series with art by him since I dropped X-Men 2099.

Truth be told, I'd love it if that scene DID get replayed in a Marvel Comic given how both are currently bigger dicks than Batman.\

And Infinity Gauntlet was just as awesome with Ron Lim as it was with George Perez - just as long as we all got to see Thanos beat up the universe.
