New Avengers 017

Let's see, so Logan and Scott have come to accept each other's positions on Scott's fugitive status. They also promote different methods of raising 'their kids'. They've recently teamed up in marvelous fashion to take down Sentinels apparently sent by SHIELD all by themselves happy with each other's present assistance. Then and since they've willingly shared some brewskis in each other's company. And yet they are still promoted/solicited/hyped "against" to each other to put the dyameticrally opposition it kindly.

Now let me get this straight. T'Challa and Namor have hated each other after AvX Event. They are fiercely loyal leaders of their respective nation of kids -and adults. They've recently threatened to kill each other for clearly and determined attacks on each other's lands. They honorably hold responsibilities for deaths their soldiers have caused in these conflicts. They have been forced into this Illuminati partnership with each other because of more than unavoidable threat to the whole planet. And yet when they share one swig of wine they become best of buds and can soberly laugh at their previous anomosity.

Hmmm, this issue -and rekindled bromance of a sort- came across a little too... uneven -on several levels- to enjoy. And the alternate Earth adventure came across as justice league wasteful both logically and thematically for my likings. Iron Man on the cover was also a cheat and the art was only plain average for this neverending storyline.

Still, the book did provide source for latest banner submission. \:\)

Okay, maybe I just missed this, but I don't recall seeing Namor taking responsibility for deaths his soldiers have caused. In fact, it was Namor HIMSELF that caused the vast majority of deaths in Wakanda by creating a huge tidal wave that drowned thousands. Keep in mind that it was that event that sparked the whole conflict between the two nations, and Namor specifically stated that he had no regrets.

He still deserves to be gutted by T'Challa in my opinion, but I guess the fact that neither of them now have a nation of people to rule has made them kindred spirits of a sort.
