      Wonder what the 5th Element is, though.

    Void. Assuming these are the five Japanese elements as discussed in the famous Japanese strategy text, The Book of Five Rings.

Most classical element systems are pretty much in agreement on this (Void/Aether).

But pleeeeeease be Heart!


      Also the time delay to get there hurts the pacing toon. Both teams must be jobbing (which is a trope of first encounter battles for the heroes - whatever).

    Quicksilver apparently is just really fast. He runs across water, a classic Flash trademark. The whole thing seemed Flash-y.

Yeah. Slight grumble for me because I don't like Pietro being that fast.

    More thoughts -

    I guess Hercules lost his eye. I didn't notice it last issue.

He didn't lose an eye. It's some kind of tech monocle. He was wearing it before the world went to crap.

    I don't think Quicksilver's dead. The bad guys think that but I think they're wrong. I don't think people BECOME statues. I think they're REPLACED by statues. Here's my one weird bit of evidence: the next issue blurb has the sentence, "The first Avenger falls!" (Seems to me that if Quicksilver died this issue then whoever dies next issue would be the second Avenger to fall.)

Well, no. Quicksilver hasn't died this issue. He hasn't even been touched yet. The soonest it can happen is next issue. So, which Avenger falls? Right now, it looks like Quicksilver is a prime candidate, but maybe not. How literally do we take that statement? Maybe they just mean someone trips. ;\)
