Quote:It's good... buuut, wow, this arbitrary player substitution is crazy contrivance. And Simon leaving mid-battle for personal reason/decision and coincidentally is perfect guinea pig to try and help Jarvis' still strange condition is crazy contrivance.
I took it to mean that Simon could get to the battle just as fast without the jet while still stopping off for a few. It's already established that he's faster than just about any jets, so this isn't new.
Of course, the post-Siege Quinjet had wormhole tech, but I don't think that's the case anymore.
Quote:The repeated vague and clueless epilogue page (with APPARENTLY The Hulk returning) was just a repeat of last ish. The bonus page theme of all MU title with Real Logan returning, post-Legacy, was just another (APPARENTLY purposed) random globetrotting sighting for no rhyme or reason.
Glad they got the right state this time.
Quote:All that was definitely OFFPUTTING stuff. Now, here's the good stuff:
Quote:-the annoying poser-ish cover was beautiful
-the inside art was okay
I thought the inner art was gorgeous.
Quote:-whole issue narration from Rogue's POV was engaging and relatable
Yeah, though I found it to be a bit overstated.
Quote:-Herc says Voyager's first name for the first time "VALERIE", afaik
Avengers #676 gave her name in narration (from Sam's POV), and Wanda called her "Val" immediately.
Quote:-Jan was switched in when Torch 'died' is explained [and yet why did the foe that claim a prize not replaced? eh? eh?]
-interesting, if contrived, new power evolution for Simon -maybe somewhat unneeded upgrade- and yet oddly it fails... interesting but weird to see [This new siphon power will come in handy against any Hulk or Spectrum.]
Don't think it was anything new for his powers.
City of Heroes is BACK!
