Quote:Makes me think of Stranger Things, which was purposely set in the 1980s so cell phones wouldn't be a factor. Funny how Synapse's random power set excludes long distance telepathy.
Optimistically waiting for Season 1 on DVD to show up at my local library since that channel is not available in my TV Cable package.
Quote:Wouldn't it be great if this story rose to the heights of the Kree/Skrull War?
Or even a Kree/Skrull pinochle game.
Quote:Interesting narration - that the Pym particles keep the micro-person alive despite the impossibility (or inadvisability at least) of inhaling. (The art contradicts that, of course, which makes me wonder which came first - the art or the narration.)
That's a neat observation given Marvel's claim to fame of their classic story creative process was spitballing before art before story.
Quote:I'm guessing - purely a guess - Voyager stopped her. After all, we don't know Voyager's true power set.
Quote:"Underwhelming" is a good adjective for this series. And I was really optimistic at the beginning. In fact the first few issues were pretty good. But boy did the series degenerate.
Quote:The scoring system for this game is a conundrum to me, but I'm pretty sure the Pyramoid is still in play until someone touches it. However, I think Voyager is playing a different game entirely. I think she wants the Spirit Pyramoid to use as a weapon or a tool or an energy source or - something.
Maybe Challenger is cheating and he rigged the Obstacles by inserting her in? Especially if this happens before Infinity Countdown and we know Grandmaster must have won to be in that storyline?
Quote:And so the Beast accomplished exactly nothing in this entire issue. Plus he amateurishly dropped his weapon and became a dunsel in distress.
