> This series so far is basically trying to prove that the anti-registration folk were right. The government is shown as completely totalitarian. Gyrich (who was never a likeable) person recruits Gauntlet who is the definition of a *&^**ing (&&^ (don't try to figure out what it means). The New Warriors are completely disrespected (at least Justice said something, but Rage was surprisingly quiet) and their name dragged through the mud. Sure I agree that they messed up, but did everyone conveniently forget all the good that they had done?

How is the governemnt not in anyway like this.. particular when dealing with the armed forces.. which the Initative is. The cover up is very much in tone with how armies behave around the world.

> The purpose of the book is completely defeated as one of the recruits dies on the first day (ironically he was one of the only of the new characters that I even remotely cared for) and then everyone covers it up and acts like nothing happened. Its too out there, and especially considering that these are kids we are talking about, it didn't sit well with me.
you probably need to do a deeper reading of the book. The pursose of the book was not defeated.. the purpose of the Initative was defeated. And examing the good and very much the bad of how something like the Initative would play out is the purpose of the book.. in which so far it has done.

But the point was show how the government was doing good things with the Initiatve. Not the same old crap they've pulled before.

The book is called The Initiative. I didn't expect a book showing how the Initiative is supposed to work, instead shows how it fails. And I have yet to see what are good points of the Initiative. Maybe its cause they rushed into the "bad" stuff a bit too soon for my taste, but I've not seen any positives. Alll I've seen is disrespect for past teams and characters and the objective of the Initiative defeated. I did say that I'd give it another try, but unless the book does a 180 and shows some advantages instead of basically proving that Cap's side was right then I'm done.
