    Thanks to Synapse
    -for being such a good girl growing up that made a positive "strength of family bonds" the deciding factor that gives Boston a tomorrow.

Not really. If it were left to her, the entire world would have no tomorrow. Thankfully, Cable stopped her.

    Thanks to Quicksilver
    -for saving the day! An incredible (almost ludicrous) speed showing to inject the cure to everyone in the city. He also pulled a fast one on Torch, fooling Johnny, that he has as big a 'heart' as Thing.

    Thanks to Rogue
    -for doing very little but weakly copying Piotr Rasputin in throwing the mutantbook Fastball Special gimmick on the whole cover emulating the splash page inside.

Just to set up that corny "oddball special" joke. Meh.

I agree with Rogue about Old Man Rogers' team.

    Thanks to M.I.T. Trio
    -for their finding the solution to save the world without proper credit (or names).

Agreed. For their contribution, we should have some names!

    Thanks to Shredded Man
    -for basically defeating himself. He ended his own threat since the Unity Squad did not even confront him. His power showing and final fate makes him a dangerous Swamp Thing Omega Level threat. Sam Smithers has got nothing on him. Rogue should stop her ineffective recruitment of flyers and put in a call for Mantis to join up for the rematch.

Even though I cannot stand Mantis, I'm forced to agree if Shredded Man is going to be an ongoing threat. However, I'm not even sure she could be effective against him. Where does his consciousness even reside?

    Thanks to Cable
    -for bringing the big guns, the temporal tropes, and the boggling future vision il/logic. Not to mention his willingness to sacrifice... someone else to test a grandfather/granddaughter bond on a strategic... whim.

It wasn't really a whim. It was very clear that was Shredded Man's only weakness. There was no defeating him by external means.

City of Heroes is BACK!
