    Avengers 681 (2018)

    Oh snap! It's good again. Last ish must've been a blip. 'Course all these new line-up solicits just drudge up all the initial trepidations that this'll all be reset and basically ("Holodeck-esquely") pointless. Whatever. Enjoyed the read, today, very much. No need to het the Back Button if you want the more PBP reactions to compare yours...

    00 Beautiful cover. Annoyingly poser-esque. Almost meaningless.

    RECAP- Ahhhh... it's the PYRAMOIDS causing the elemental havoc all along. Capturing them turns 'em off. More contrivance that only 2 are in play at a time and the 2 teams are tasked to split their forces.

    ROLLCALL- Liking this themed bonus page.

    -Homonym name like Mar-Vell. Neat. Like his POV thought narration.
    -Cool use of known races and acceptable origin brief for the Lethal Legion for The Game.
    -Kind of downplays the significant current changes to the Kree Empire.

Glah-Ree? glAH-Ree? GLAh-Ree? Hmm... okay. Doesn't roll off the tongue like Mar-Vell(Marvel). Just as well, since he probably won't survive this.

Pretty sure the current Kree Empire might be his point.

    -Glorious double splash fight (pun unintended).
    -Impressive Voodoo and Wasp attacks. Not liking the Citizen V flamefeet flight.
    -Is Sunny-bee Gas Station a IRL thing?

Roberto's been flying since early-X-Force vol 1.

Sunny-Bee Gas Station is probably an homage to the old Esso Bee. Esso became Exxon in 1972, and the name is still in use in some parts. Esso's mascot was the Esso Bee.

    06-07 Rogue's turn. Whoa! It appears she MAY HAVE killed Glaive (based on what Proxima says later)! Feel her pain. Hmm... How will a 'real' death compare/last to a 'gamepiece' death? Excellent/precidented way to use her power to get Black Order origin brief for The Game. Ifff he did die or not - can't wait to see how aborbing his power will change her reportoire.

Yeah. Interesting turn of events.

    16-18 More entertaining fighting mixed with helpful story exposition. Avengers picking up their game. Uhhh... did we know Simon could force field up an ionic barrier? Exciting teaser - calling in the mystery player mentioned earlier... will the LL break the tie...

Don't recall seeing Simon do that before.

    19 Oooooh SNAP! Snap of the bowstring as it were. Great entrance. (Won't ruin the exciting pace by asking why he ain't frozen.)

Very nice cavalry arrival... even if it's only the two of them.

    20 Oooooh CRAP! It IS "Hulk". (As other posters had surmised.) Very interesting that maybe he didn't die in that nuke afterall? Or maybe it was the alt-Banner as questioned back then?

I'm finally realize why each issue has been in a different state. The Mount was blown up so much that the ruins are probably spread between Nevada, New Mexico, and Arizona.

Someone (here or CBR?) mentioned that there's a similarity between Voyager and the Lethal Legion in that her eyes have pupils. Notice how she grew paler when she needed to recharge. There may be something to this. Maybe if she fails she dies, like them.
