    Is Misty's dad Mysterio? Or some new version of Mysterio? He's kind of mentioned in the letters page, and that trick of Misty's could have been illusion just as easily as magic. (Especially since she saw the photo of the wife before she made the zombie thing)

    Plus...Misty...Mysterio...

    A mystic and a pimp?



    Quote:
    maybe...


It's certainly possible. But I'm leaning more towards mystic because I'm assuming she's the girlfriend Hornet talked about that gave him that demon summoning thing. But if I'm wrong about Misty being the Hornet's girlfriend then I have no reason to assume she's a mystic and then she could totally be Mysterio's daughter.

That said Myterio dressing like a pimp with a creepy necklace makes being wrong totally worth it.

    Quote:

    I don't know if that was supposed to be Dusk in Misty's trunk. Why would someone who could teleport need to ride in someone's trunk? How could she have known that Misty would use THAT car? I guess she could have teleported into the trunk when she saw Misty get in, but again, why would she need to?


I'm assuming she's doing that thing where heroes follow the suspicious person. Spider-Man just sort of stalks them from a distance. Cassie rides in the trunk of the limo Misty scammed her way into riding in at the airport. Ok my theory needs works but still it looked like Cassie.


    Quote:
    I also assume Misty is Hornet's girlfriend, which either makes the tentacle thing an illusion, or probably means the zombie wife wasn't a simple illusion.



    Quote:
    I'm wondering why Hornet is pretending to be Eddie. It's not like Eddie had all that great a rep to tread on, right? It would be great if it turned out to be Hindsight Lad, but I think if it were, he'd have been more convincing about having been on a team w/
    Ricochet.



    Quote:
    I'm late to the game, only having picked up these last couple issues due to the Slingers guest stars. Do we know why Thorne hates Mercury so much, or why they have different last names?


Well three guesses about the last name:
1. Cassandra was married to Abigail's father and took his last name Mercury
2. Cassandra and Thorne only share the same mother (who they discussed) and have different fathers.
3. Cassandra Mercury is some sort of alias

I don't think you really missed much on the Thorne mystery front. But how weird is it that Thorne hires a hero whose codename is an anagram of Thorne?
