MJ looked sexy on the cover which presumably was symbolic of the Valentine gift she gives Pete every day as his personal cheerleader on call.

The opening comparing notes with Mandrill was pricelss. And the one observation about his name explains the absence of the CCA.

Seeing Sentry's tower makes me have to ask when does this take place in Avengers and/or Amazing #ing???

Pete knowing that MJ was just joking of wanting to see Captain America naked. Ha!

Jackpot'sMJ's very own Rogue's Gallery! And she's got quite the aim.

Punking Torch not once but TWICE! \:\)

Ahhh, the good ole days, when Tony was nice to Peter...

Okay, his gift to her in Silver Surfer Requiem was the best never-really-happened gift but the bracelets gift here was great/practical/thoughtful!!!

I HEART MARVEL #2 (2006) was a FUN issue... except for the battle:


Not nuts about the fight. Spidey looks amateurish. Cap should know Dragon Man (from the fantastic fight in the Stern/Byrne run). The new Cage does not wear bling (though he probably should the belt buckle is a neat start that should be used again). Since when is DM(an android) vulnerable to sonics? I am NOT a Marvel science major but, doesn't Cap's shield absorb/negate a lot of energy and isn't loud sound a lot of energy (even though the Luke's plan was novel enough)? And... uhmm... the Hannibal Lector chains was basically good for only a sight gag as his wings were unfettered!

> Since when is DM(an android) vulnerable to sonics?

Since you referenced the Stern/Byrne Dragon Man story in Cap, you might recall that Dragon Man was vulnerable to sonics there; it's how Machinesmith controlled him in those stories.

The vulnerability was established by Gerry Conway in Fantastic Four v.1 #134-5.

You're right, of course!

Guess it only fair that I forgive Cap forgetting the details as well. ;\) Without digging out my ish or Googling, I vaguely remember the 3 (or4?) tiny spheres hovering around DM 'controlling' him. What I fondly remember is Cap's predicament with his shield wedged in the ledge out of reach and him, in the crushing grip of DM with no utility belt gimmicks to save him. His resourceful guantlet slap seemed perfect escape strategy and his bravery to ride along (via clothesline?) as DM flew off was an inspiring memory, IIRC.

Thanks Omar.

No Marvel comics are CCA anymore. But thanks for the review. This was a good issue and it was nice to walk down memory lane.
