I dont know if i should be relieved or angry that this filipino team got blown up after only 2 pages. coming from the philippines i was excited to hear quesada say that we were going to have our own team in ironman#2. but hearing the teams name for the first time didnt give me much confidence. i mean "triumph division"? i had a feeling that they will just be used as cannon fodder and i was right. what irks me is how lame the characters and their names were-

Red Feather
St. george
Mighty mother
Fighter One
The wishing Man
The Great Mongoose

no filipino connections whatsover with their names except for anitun which might have come from the word "anito" but even thats stretching it. did matt fraction even research a bit about the philippines? and what were monks doing there? there are no buddhist monks in the philippines.
