Subj: A-Force #1: Not as bad as expected...
Posted: Wed Jan 06, 2016 at 11:40:25 am EST (Viewed 286 times)

Not even near as bad as expected.

A-Force 001 (2016)

Just some bullet thoughts to compare...

• The X-men's defunct All X-Women launch/concept did NOT work, IMO, and thankfully this did not start out the same.
• Damn, Daz degrades that otherwise servicable cover with that look.
• Introductory issue featuring 6 women but having ONLY 4 of them in the premiere is NOT a good creative choice all.
• Pet peeve problem -and illogic- with magic user Nico Minoru not advertising (again) her nom de guere: Sister Grimm.
• 8 MONTHS LATER GAP sux as usual.
• Smart way to acknowledge the Battleworld team/mini and Singularity's mystery connnection to that 'origin' for her.
• MARVEL, PLEASE DESTROY Alpha Flight Space Station ASAP and don't rename it by Canada's premiere superteam again. Suggestion: rename it A-Force Station to honor the shorthand name of the Battleworld and thus 'officially' differentiating it (and it's essentially ambiguous mission) from any 616 Avengers franchise connection.
• Dr.Bell is a welcome supporting character.
• Have to go reread Avengers #0 to double check how this synchs up.
• Fun reunion with Carol.
• Like Singy's unique truncated sentencespeak too.
• Carol is waaay to casual with how she handles powerful stranger and unpredicatble entity on the space station.
• That Antimatter Monster is a bit too weird.
• Singy's corporeal interactions was not established clearly enough either - why would a handscanner recognize her, why would she need to open the door when she passed thru to get in, why does she even need the escape pod, why does she not comprehend the simplest logic and tactics if she remembers her Battleworld teamwork, what is she thinking leaving Carol to her immenent death, how is she managing to navigate targetted landfall, etc... Probably all easily No-Prized but still offputting rushed plot devices.
• Neat way to bring Medusa into the fray. (Except for the Attilan not having any defenses/shields part.)
• Genuinely funny Clark Kent's crashsite in-joke.
• Fun reunion with Jen.
• Believable way to bring/fit She-Hulk into the story.
• Fun TWIST reunion with Medusa.
• Why is the Queen and her plot device troops ignoring the pink elephant(ie.the foe) in the room?
• Working Medusa and Carol's footnoteless chronology that more FRUSTRATING; they are also very lucky Antimatter Monster pawning of the two didn't result in quick deaths.
• Liked the art; not so much the fight scenes.
• Suprisingly, looking forward to #2.
