Quote:Fun start with LL update. Lightning's argument for dropping the "Living" is weak (and disagreeable). He's THAT famous to be recognized in "disguised" civvies?! He says he's NOT a "full-on" Avenger - makes sense, great. BUT then later on his Identicard is working and he is confirmed to be an (arbitrarily acknowledged) RESERVE member as per the plot device. Sigh. Whatever. It IS good to see the return of another Avenger post-SW & post-SE.
I'd take issue with his celebrity, but the rest seems to jibe. "Not a 'full-on' Avenger" is extremely vague. He can still be a reservist even if he's never called up.
Quote:Detective Dan is LL's gay friend.
Wha?! THE Detective Dan?! Does Nickelodeon know?
Quote:Global crisis is presented. Something BIG and BAD is going... HOLYCRAP the Earth (AND Moon?) is GONE! High Evolutionary would be SO EMBARRASSED how he failed to do this very thing last arc! Only Carol and her AFSS remain. And she puts out a call for alien help. HA! Good luck with that! No aliens helped against Stevil and now even the GotG aren't answering speed dial. Carol looks good without helmet but it's annoying how that necessity is casually disgarded for artistic license instead of reason.
Quote:Jarvis is a FREEKIN' HERO! Poor Jarvis!
Quote:Synapse helps more than a few. Voodoo just talks to her.
HEY! Synapse is all healed up.
Quote:Remind me what is the heaviest thing we've seen Wasp carry in flight?
Janet can bend steel bars when tiny.
Quote:UGH!!!!! Occupy Avengers are back. BAH!!!!! And suddenly down to 2 members?
Hmm... there's a team of X-Men and Avengers in New Mexico this week (see Phoenix Resurrection).
Quote:Something from space(?) crash dives to Rome. It's probably the last page surprise guest that shows up easierpeasier in NYC?
Quote:Last page surprise "RETURN" of VOYAGER! https://www.newsarama.com/36649-who-is-avengers-no-surrender-s-voyager-exploring-the-odds.html SURE, she's been SPOILED and TEASED before this already, all over, but still... HOLYCRAP!
HOLY--- MEH! I mean it's cool and all, but nothing that exceptional.
I'm just not seeing what all the hubbub is. So, Earth is in another crisis. And this is different than the other eleventy hundred crises?
The ending just doesn't work because everybody seems to know who she is... except us. Who is she? Why should I care? What makes her return so interesting? I think there should have been some kind of #0/Alpha issue that introduced her before this.
City of Heroes is BACK!
