...nothing (well, almost nothing) but filler in Avengers #681.
I'm extremely bored and have zero excitement left in me except with regard to the upcoming Hulk appearance and the other event that happens toward the end of the issue.
All we got was more chasing after pyramoids. This kind of story worked in the Silver Age when it happened in a single issue or maybe, at most, two.
Yeah, Glah-Ree (which I pronounce glah-REE) is interesting to read about. Yeah, Jan taking on both Blood Brothers was amusing and impressive.
Rogue killed. I guess I'm supposed to be deeply moved by that. But I'm not. Rogue says it all: "Not gonna say ah'm sorry. Not after what happened to Johnny."
Lightning fails once again to stop a pyramoid from being claimed. Pretty useless, this guy.
Vector needs to recharge after every. Single. Teleport. Please stop this. The big drama of the comic is getting from point A to point B. What could possibly be more boring?
Vector's origin is pretty cool but told with all the emotional impact of a lost set of keys. (Less, actually. Far less. I get really upset when I lose my keys.) Being super made her interesting to her Dad. That's poignant. I just wish being super made Vector interesting to me.
Synapse pulls another ability out of thin air.
One good bit: Mentacle tries to force a Blood Brother to claim the pyramoid against his will! Very evil. I like it!
And then - as so often happens - Hawkeye saves the day! And he has Red Wolf with him! Finally something cool may be about to happen!
Oh, and yeah, yeah, here comes the Hulk. We've known it from the first tease.
The solicit for next issue is fun. The Injun has the pistols and the Paleface has the bow and arrows! Love it.
Slow - slow - slow - but as I keep saying in desperate hope: I think maybe next issue will be good!
