Quote: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.
Well, she was hyped by Marvel as being the next Sentry or Blue Marvel, and they stuck.
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?)
Blood Brothers are the ones I'm least interested in, and never found them interesting. But why are these looking so human? It's like they took anything that was remotely interesting about the Blood Brothers (there wasn't much) and infused it with boring.
Both died at least once. Drax killed one. The other was sent to the Raft and was later killed during the Black Vortex story. They both mysteriously returned during the Pleasant Hill story. Maybe Kobik created them? /shrug
Quote: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?
Eh. What's another Kree...
City of Heroes is BACK!
