Quote:I too am really enjoying this ride so far. Here are some of my thoughts, apologies if they seem redundant with everyone else.
Quote: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.
Good guess as any. In lieu of preview, ATM, rereading the solicits for clues again...
Quote: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?
Noh Varr is getting way convoluted and should probably be killed off. Then Marvel can start playing up Mel-Varr Kid Kree more.
◾ Corvus Glaive -That's the best of that bunch (ie. made leader again)?!
◾ Black Dwarf -Hmm...
◾ Supergiant -That's a psychic projection?!
◾ Proxima Midnight -Badass, takes out Mansion by her spear alone?!
◾ Ebony Maw -Hmm...
◾ Black Swan (Yabbat Ummon Turru) -That's her real name?!
Lethal Legion II
◾ Ferene -Hmm...
◾ Mentacle -Cool blended name. Avengers are pathetically psi-challenged so he could be trouble.
◾ Drall -Nice trash talking. "From Beyond the Stars" as in Mangog from Beyond the Stars?
◾ Captain Glory -Kinda looks like DC's The Ray.
◾ Metal Master (Moyln) -Why is he talking like MM#1 is dead since he was just in Black Bolt's book?
◾ Blood Brothers -A BB did die. Not sure how he came back, though. wikia will probably say... If it is the same twin, they better have good reason to "pull an Atlantean" and go all tatts.
Quote: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.
But hopefully not gone from AMB, right?
Heh. The irony would be that it looks like Marvel has her sticking around. (ala Sage: early X-men retcon member)
I miss Dad & Dan.
