> MS. MARVEL #13: As usual, this series never fails to disappoint me, which is the reason why it's my number one favorite read at the moment and will likely always be that way. This issue mostly set thing up for the future, dipping into the ongoing AIM subplot, in addition to seeing Arachne once again, searching for her daughter. There was more with Sarah Day, too, although nothing sinister happened this time around. The artwork was fabulous, too, and I loved that last page shot of Arachne! *eek*

I'm with Doc here. Your constant praise of the series has caused me to pick up this series and while I wasn't too fond of the alternate Carol story its a very good title. I especially liked Tony and Carol's interactions this issue. I'm not digging this new guy she's dating though. Simon's the guy for her imo.

> NEW AVENGERS #28: I have come to see the "New" in New Avengers as of this issue. With Cap dead and Iron Man on the other team, there are no longer any classic Avengers around; everyone on the team has truly made these guys the "New" Avengers. Story-wise, I liked the framing sequence with the Silver Samurai and how it wrapped around the lead-in to the big Mighty v.s. New clash. While this book is certainly not near the caliber of the classic stories, I still enjoy this title for the most part, especially now that I see them in a different light, which I think helps things. I have to say, though -- I'm not a fan of Yu's art. I used to be, back when he had great inkers, but by

I think once you look at it as a bunch of heroes trying to live up to the legacy of Captain America and the legacy of the Avengers instead of the classic team with just a different roster you can appreciate it more.

> CIVIL WAR: BATTLE DAMAGE REPORT: I've always liked the specialty handbooks (I plan on buying the Magic one) and this one was right on the mark. Lots of great entries like Cybermancer, Equinox, Goldbug, Ricadonna's Rogues (who I love), Heroes For Hire and more. The appendix deal at the end was nice, too, although it obviously didn't cover everybody. I think the Marvel writers need to look through the last five pages of this book and use some of these guys in a serious way. That's what they're there for. Seeing guys like Thunderbolt and Aquarian again would be nice.

I heard that Spider-Man's upgrades are now being referenced. Sounds cool

Question on BAttleDamage

I'd read somewhere, posted in haste, that Carol is listed as being in the 75 class now, is that the entry? Is she 'powering up' officially?

Does the book even have official 'stats' like this or was it something else the original poster was referencing. If it's a big who's who after CW I might actually get sucked into buying a copy.

"I don't think there's such a thing as a hero.
It's a lovely idea and this isn't meant to be cynical,
but I think people are just people who are capable of
very good of very bad things.... "
