Okay, I seriously dislike Bendis, hate big crossovers and never read a single issue of Alias, why do I enjoy the Pulse so much?

Maybe, because it doesn't matter if you read Secret War or not, this story stands on it's own. The whole point is the heroes are caught up in something they don;t understand, and the story makes that work.
and despite my not being a big fan of gangsta rap Luke Cage, he and Jessica are a nice, well written couple.

My only gripes are Iron Fist was written as a bit of a dick and I liked the first story, when the newspaper staff all got equal time in the spotlight. As the series went on it became pretty much the Luke and Jessica show.

Still a series and one of the few Bendis written stories that I enjoyed.
