Avengers 679

Good cover.

Somewhat eye catchy. The Challenger gets a surpising headshot. Throwing random Avengers from this Event on feels as symbolic but misleading as the main cover.

Meaningless variant cash grab. Kudos to long forgotten Space Phantom for scoring a nod.

Sooo, they're moving the Roll Call line-up around to mirror the story update. The variant reminds me that Beast and Waspnadia must be among "The Obstacles" if the story would ever get around to clarifying the 5 W's of getting frozen in this game.

Sooo, they're called "PYRAMOIDS" and it's confirmed that grabbing one "ANNIHILATES" you. Hmm... seems like details better told IN-STORY.

Colorful descript for Grandmaster. Might've been neater to throw in some actual deet to move this story along.

Sooo, the big mystery villain was... someone readers don't know and had no chance of guessing? That seems a bit antidramatic reveal at this point, eh? He looks cool, though. His codename is "CHALLENGER"? Is that a boringly generic monicker or a designated appelation of an (new) Elder just like En Dwi Gast got?

Say what now? Grandmaster is upset about Johnny being (apparently) annihilated? That's kinda interesting. And the LL are honorable players? Huh. Let's see if Sam or Simon are smart enough to put 2 and 2 together...

The BO seem less honorable even though they take a time out too. Synapse may be right 'cuz Sam's excuse for letting the bad guys get away is that The Avengers are in the people saving business so why didn't he assign someone to help clean up after The Mansion exploded or look after all the heroes that were frozen? Will we even learn who logged on the names of those victims shown frozen on the screen grid display earlier?

What do YOU think of the preview?
