> > I noticed something, while reading this issue, that might be rather important with regard to the identity of Menace. When Harry Osborn and Lily Hollister are racing away from a Super-Skrull, they end up crashing into a light pole. Harry and Lily leave the vehicle in a hurry just as one of the Super-Skrulls blows it into pieces. Flames roaring all around him, Harry has no idea where Lily went. With a Super-Skrull hot on his tail, Harry runs away, though he wonders what happened to Lily the entire time. Harry then finds a hiding spot while the Super-Skrull sends cars flying all over the place, seemingly looking for him. Just then, someone off-panel says "Quiet you" and cuts the Super-Skrull's head right off. The someone is revealed to be none other than Menace. Now isn't it quite coincidental that Menace appeared within seconds of Lily disappearing? Didn't Brian Reed mention something in an interview a little while back about dropping big hints about the identity of Menace in this limited series? Thoughts please?

I too noted that; the artist definitely missed the mark with that one.
That's one of the things that bug me about pencillers today...the same characters look totally different from one panel to the other or entirely different from what they initially looked like. The reason I like the art of legends like Sal Buscema, the Romitas, Byrne, etc. is that their characters look the same from one page to another, as well as from one issue to another. There is no mistaking characters with them. You can't say the same thing about artists today.
