    What a shame that all this good characterization will go to waste. If every old timeline is permanently wiped out and every new Battleworld Zone is ultimately wiped out then all is lost. If the original 2099 Universe is reset then all this 2099 Zone new canon is lost. If this Nueva York Zone goes on as the 'fixed' new timeline then all that elaborate 2099 history that fans invested in is essentially lost. So, while THIS 2099 timeline is one of the very few Zones (along with Old Man Logan's) with some of the continuity at least has the illusion of organic progression - in the end the storyline still feels meaningless despite PAD being on his game with lots of fun in the lines delivered (and a grabber cover too). The appearance of the 'new' 2099 Defenders made me forget the problem for a second or two, too. But what's the point of props when everything Secret Wars (and the year of Time Runs Out) continues to be exasperating.

    In the perfect world -or any world besides Battleworld- the members of Alchemax's Avengers all have interesting potential.
    Who was your favorite?
    Alchemax Avengers
    â–  Miguel Stone (does he or doesn't he have Spidey-powers)?
    â–  Captain America (Roberta Mendez) (Last name first revealed)?

Am I the only one thinking that perhaps Miguel and Roberta merge? Sometimes, Roberta seems to have an average body, then she suddenly bulks up.

    â–  Iron Man (Sonny Frisco) (what is his connection to the assassin hiring Stark-Fujikawa company)?
    â–  Black Widow (Tania) (hardcore justice in latex)?
    â–  Hawkeye (Max) (First name first revealed) (hybrid powers is more facetted than firing last second deusexmachinarrows)
    â–  Hercules (good ole Olympian extremes)?

Herc seems very extreme and less fun.

City of Heroes is BACK!
