U.S.Avengers 010 (2017)

SO GOOD! So much content and developments!

...The title to this story is fun and foreshadowy. (And the blurbed title to next ish. "CANNONBALL RUN", is VERY fun and cleverish; has it ever been used before?)
...(Fan-fave) CB cameo action.
...HYDRA clean up and S.E. followup (though minimal).
...Intro Sen. Krask as (curious) new liason. Did you find him good/bad?, right/wrong?, patriotic/suspicious?, brash/assertive?
...New (organic and intriguing if new natural state) direction with red Maverick.
...New (organic and believable if longterm) direction with Toni Ho.
...More SHIELD status (or removed status). Did he confirm the International purview is definitely out but the Americanized version will now be run by Nick Fury Jr.?!
...Enigma talks with Squirrel Girl and Squirrel Girl her relationship.
...Post-Sw "Revolving Door" (but beter than no facetime cameo) by recognizable D-Listers Plunderer and Bee Ell You Ee Streak!
...New (organic and possibly Legacy related) direction with DaCosta! THE BIG STORY POINT. Maybe he'll be called Sunspot again ASAP. Loved how his 'interview' went. Hate if he goes back to being a mediocre crappy character he was for a long time before Mr.Ewing. The headband regulator fixture will be a good thing for his visual character design.

The artwas nicely done again. And then came Smasher and the nitpicks. Sigh. Easy teleport kidnapping from White House Lawn once again. Boo. (Guess those Planetary Shields couldn't be modified for good.) Shi'ar Forces come to Earthlings to help with their problems. (Again? We're backwater to them.) Galactic GPS implants are a thing. (It was hard enough No-Prizing when Cerebro couldn't locate a mutant on Earth for the umpteenth MIA - now there should be no excuse once this tech become commonplace with this plot device convenience.) And the most contentious thing about her was the (debatable) AVENGERS STATUS she flaunts. Also, does her 779 Clearance Number with AFSS suggest that organization did not fold like SHIELD did? This book and all the books read so far are still dancing around too much when it comes to concrete S.E. fallout details - and yet the stories are probably WEEKS after Secret Empire #10, eh?

Do you like where each of the team members are heading? Or only certain ones? How would you like to see this book and/or team revamped and/or repackaged after the paths they are taking here?
