I too am really enjoying this ride so far. Here are some of my thoughts, apologies if they seem redundant with everyone else.
1) I think we are all pretty aware that this recon with Voyager is not going to stick, correct? I am interested to see where they are going with this and as many others have said the way they seamlessly included her into the Avengers past was pretty cool. My bet is that Voyager time traveling Valeria Richards.
2)I agree that no one in that mansion was aware of the pending attack is just plain silly.
3) Not a fan of the Black Order, was happy they were dead, hope they return to the grave very soon. Unsold on the new Lethal Legion, In fact, the members of both these teams look interchangeable and equally forgettable. But it's always fun to see the Blood Brothers (although I prefer their old look & was one of them dead?)
Captain Glory (although the coolest looking member) is yet another example of Marvel's inability to leave things alone. Grant Morrison's Marvel Boy was a great, thoughtful story that should have been left where it was. But since Marvel Boy/Protector/the Inhuman Kid's arrival into the 616 he has floundered around and never really lived up to the character Morrison first created. Did they learn from that mistake? Of course not, they double down and now we have Capt. Glory. Ugh. Oh Marvel, will you ever learn?
Overall I am really enjoying this ride so far and am curious to see where it will go but if Voyager's continuity sticks I am gone.
