    And Voyagers on again off again rest again -power capability reset each issue- is crazy contrivance.

Vector's teleporting, contrivance or not, is boring. She needs other abilities and almost certainly has them - so let's see them.

    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.

While not exciting it was at least informative - for me, any way. I didn't know Logan was on Earth and certainly didn't know he was in Peru. Plus we now know he's in stasis.

    -Rulk has good 'tude about never giving up

I can't decide what I think about Rulk.

    -Voodoo has determined the player switchouts is a SPELL OF BODILY SUBSTITUTIONS

No, the spell of bodily substitution is how he got himself and his colleagues to the battlefield, and Rulk back to base.

Too much of this comic (every issue so far) is dedicated to moving from place to place. Boring.

I found it very difficult to recognize Roberto. In fact I don't actually recognize him. I infer the character next to the Scarlet Witch must be him.

    Jan was switched in when Torch 'died' is explained [and yet why did the foe that claim a prize not replaced? eh? eh?

Good question. As for Jan, her appearance this issue was boring. She was in stasis and now she's not.

    -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.]

Too much pseudo-science for my taste.

The most fun in this issue was seeing bad guys randomly taken out by Mjolnir! It actually made me laugh!

So the Lethal Legion got the Pyramoid. This would mean more to me if I could figure out why I should care which team wins.

I enjoyed seeing the Beast give Wonder Man a hug. I just wish Wonder Man showed more emotion, but OK, he must surely be all depressed because (as far as he knows) Johnny died.
