    Also disappointing was the realization that this is a Anti-eXilesbad guys book. Even ifffff Thundra is here to redeem them - realistically that won't happen and can't happen soon enough. On the plus side, it was a much more energetic and galvanizing premiere than the Illuminati's bad guys book. Also

Well, we knew it was going to be a bunch of alt-universe people. And we knew they would not be nice.

    When Nighthawk says "NEWLY ADOPTED HOME" he must be presuming Earthlings are welcoming them, eh?

Not necessarily. He's adopted it as his home, not necessarily been adopted.

    Will they have "NAMOR WAS RIGHT" t-shirts out in time for Xmas?

Problem is: Namor's face doesn't look as cool as Our Lord Magneto.

    Of course, Tyrak and Attuma, wouldn't be among the slaughtered. Sigh. Are we also to assume the fight starts out on the shore by San Francisco and 'Atlantis' is lying on the ocean floor by Utopia Island?

Yeah, would have liked to see some caption that explained locations.

    That was CERTAINLY an impressive 'debut' feat by Hyperion (ala Superman moving mountains or Gladiator teletactilely hefting the Baxter Building). The CBMB is already abuzz http://www.comicboards.com/php/show.php?msg=comicbattles-2015121615482912. As Helen Lovejoy insist, "Won't somebody think of the children?!" Well to his credit he does give them time to evacuate but doesn't it seem illogical that he could lift it that far and that fast thru the depths that they didn't have time to bail by simply swimming to the side of it?

He very obviously was lying about the giving them time to evacuate. We see them falling off the edges of Atlantis.

    And speaking of children - Hype is so out of pre-Incursion characterization. How is he supposed to rationalize his new way to his beloved Zebra Kids?

Indeed. He's pretty much a different.

I loved the original Weirdworld series. He's a great character, but not exactly "fun." He was never, ever comic relief. Mud-Butt the Dwarf was the comic relief of that troupe. Tyn was the main character of his tale: an elf warrior with no memories, who could have easily come out of Tolkien, but for his diminutive stature.

    Never read Weirdworld yet (it's next for me) does this mean Arkon married to Thundra on Polemachus is another thing Reset - and never connected to Battleworld?

Nothing suggests that. We know Arkon is lost in Weirdworld, trying to get home to Polemachus. She's searching for someone to help him... get home (I would assume). Very weird that she'd hook up with these guys, especially after first impression.

Days before this, maybe... Perhaps less.

    Why doesn't Rogers start his ANAD tenure out smart for a change. Instead of summoning the Unity Squad, as someone online suggested call for better match ups? How 'bout:
    Odinson or BlueMarvel for Hype.
    Ms.Marvel or Shulkie for Zarda.
    Iron Man or Vision for Nighthawk.
    Pietro can stay for Blur.
    Voodoo can stay for Doctor Spectrum.

Involving the Unity Squad is just a writer's mistake. Nothing about it can end well.

    Other online opinions included:

      Namor deserves better --
      >Namor was Marvel's first superhero.
      >Namor was Marvel's first supervillain.
      >Namor caused the first ever comic book crossover (creating the Marvel Universe).
      >Namor was the first superhero to fly.
      >Namor has a special sense of style and character.
      >Namor is one of the most influential heroes and villains in Marvel.


        So, if Nighthwak puts the hit out on supreme human threats:
        >Kill Attuma, he's worse than Namor in every way
        >Kill Dr Doom once Tony mentions he's back
        >Kill Red Skull
        >Kill Arnim Zola and destroy his endless clone banks
        >Kill Annihilus
        >Kill the Mole Man
        >Kill Norman Osborn
        >Kill Baron Strucker
        >Kill Apocalypse before he helps Fox keep X-franchise
        >Kill Viper
        >Kill Mr. Sinister
        >Kill Dario Agger, CEO of Roxxon
        >Kill Zemo and wipe his Bagalia off the map

Kill Hyperion?
