Quote:• Enjoyable art even if Rogue's hair is superpoofy.
FEH! Her has has been more superawesome before.
Quote:• So, does UNAFFILIATED a grouping of Reserve (Lightning) and Inactive/Dead (Voyager)? And after last issue's big reintro - did Miguel Santos even cameo in this meeting?!
More than a cameo. He talks a bit. He's the other non-constumed brown guy at the meeting, wearing a suit jacket with no tie.
Quote:• So, thaaaaat's Voyager's ORIGIN. The phony flashbacks fit in seamlessly. Hmm, does that mean the KOOKY QUARTET are remembered as the KOOKY QUINTET? And of course Avenger X is completely ignored here. This is truly remembered by all as surely as Sentry's existence was truly forgotten. (Let's hope she ain't a Legacy version of him. Already regretting mentioning it.)
I'm not sure whether to be impressed with the scalpel use of inserting her into continuity or just infuriated by it.
Quote:• Intro: An ALL-NEW LETHAL LEGION. Hmm... They look formidable. A bunch of character bits thrown in for fun fan speculating.
All very cool looking. I hope they do more than look good.
Quote:• Return of THE BLACK ORDER. Uhm, isn't someone supposed to be dead there? Or is it a Universe 8 resurrection thing going on or new version or something else? Wasn't there discontent among some of them too, after INFINITY?
Proxima just died in the Unworthy Thor mini.
Corvus just died in Thanos.
Supergiant seemed to die during Infinity, but apparently, she's some kind of spirit or something.
Black Dwarf was killed by Ronan during Infinity.
Quote:• Sometimes Falcon's power is presented supercrazy levels but here it is downplayed to more limited usefulness. Missed opp for Redwing to spotlight again to have him specifically detect the floaters. On the plus side it is the ONLY showing of any kind readers get of the good guys. Sheesh, their combined powers couldn't even detect 2 supervillains overhead!!??
I could see being technologically blind on a global scale, but surely NYC's own cameras plus any special Avengers cameras/detection tech would see this coming.
Very OMG moment, but at the same time, very, very lame.
