    Vector's teleporting, contrivance or not, is boring. She needs other abilities and almost certainly has them - so let's see them.

A female Manifold. Maybe it's better to keep it simple given how contrived her insertion is. No need for upgrades already but that doesn't mean her 'voyaging' can be made more interesting. Maybe she can go places that Manifold can't. We know she has the PORTAL FIELD but also she has an ENERGO FIELD which gives her mastery over reality *rolls eyes* which sooounds formidable.

    While not exciting it was at least informative - for me, any way. I didn't know Logan was on Earth and certainly didn't know he was in Peru. Plus we now know he's in stasis.

He was just in London in ASM (attached) and another one can't think of OTTOMH since he was seen in Legacy #1.

    No, the spell of bodily substitution is how he got himself and his colleagues to the battlefield, and Rulk back to base.

You're right. My bad. Kind of weird that he knew to switch with Rulk without somesort targetting explanation - other than "It's magic". Maybe Wanda augured it. Hmm... why not switch places with a foe and have him pop up in a cell?

    Too much of this comic (every issue so far) is dedicated to moving from place to place. Boring.

The story is starting to trip over itself.

    I found it very difficult to recognize Roberto. In fact I don't actually recognize him. I infer the character next to the Scarlet Witch must be him.

And where is his metal band he needs on his forehead?


    Quote:
    So the Lethal Legion got the Pyramoid.

It seems imminent. Hasn't exactly happened - similar to but more underwhelming than the Pietro get pulverized and Torch gets fried cliffhanger teases.

    This would mean more to me if I could figure out why I should care which team wins.

Exactly!


    Quote:
    I enjoyed seeing the Beast give Wonder Man a hug. I just wish Wonder Man showed more emotion, but OK, he must surely be all depressed because (as far as he knows) Johnny died.

It bothered me how forced and unlikely that scene happens which by extension ruined the feelgood hugunion (which they already did anyways a couple issues ago).
