MAJOR SPOILERS POLL OF THE WEEK
As mentioned yesterday, the S.W.O.R.D. series is coming to an end, but writer Kieron Gillen says it will end naturally and make a heck of a mini-series.  This got us thinking – instead of an ongoing series that has the potential of being canceled midway through its run, would going the mini-series route be the better option?  That way if the series stumbles, it can wrap up the mini-series and the company can move on.  As long as the minis continue to sell, the company can keep producing arc after arc.
What say you the fine Legion of Major Spoilerites?
Long running series for me, I gots to have my epic tale

MAJOR SPOILERS DISCUSSION: Nothing Can Stop the Juggernaut
Black Tom Cassidy dispatches the Juggernaut to kidnap Madame Web in the hope that her psychic powers would help them defeat the X-Men. She receives a vision of their plan, and calls Peter Parker to ask him to stop the Juggernaut. Spider-Man makes many attempts to stop the Juggernaut, all of which end in failure. When the Juggernaut reaches Madame Web, he separates her from her life-support system, almost killing her. As Madame Web is taken to a hospital, Spider-Man again tries to stop the Juggernaut, finally trapping him in a vat of wet cement.
