Just finished reading the latest issue and wasn't all that impressed






SPOILERS

there were way too many thought balloons



and the fight scenes between Ultranny and Sentry wasn't very exciting



also tigra licking hank pym grossed me out



Ares just feels a bit generic to me.



And Wasp's hair is starting to bug me



Too many butt shots



my favorite moments



Maria Hill getting knocked out ( still bitter about Civil War)

Thus leading to Black Widow Director of Shield



Wonder Man's characterization, little insecurity moments and worrying about Carol were spot on.



The last page was intriguing because if anyone has a contigency plan upon his death its tony stark.

And now the other pages:
-waaay better than NA this month
-big conflict for the big MU team is a good thing
-thinking "..." seemed a waste. Nitpick: Either he was unconscious and the panel was cluttered with a wasted thought balloon or he wasn't and he was obviously disoriented with a wasted thought balloon. If he was awake after that explosion and had something for the readers to know then it wouldn't have been a wasted thought balloon
-have a phone was a fun line. Nitpick: Still, it shows this team ill prepared to not even have a communication capability. Surely, the Widow should have a mike
-so Hank and Jan are done, eh? Funny confirmation(s). Including the licking!
-caught with his pants down! Ha. Sometimes Hank makes the worse choices
-okay, do not recall the absorbing of energy. Wasted time leafing back to confirm. She seemed to fly Ares fine - maybe I'll check issue 2?
-pupiless eyes thru shades is freaky. And probably prevents him from seeing he has a secret crush on Carol (like he did Wanda) that won't be expressed 'til issue... oh, say MA#143? \:\-p
-"..." is waaaaaay more preferable to the bracketted "if that's what happened". Pet peeve: Hate brackets in word balloons. There should be only words. Besides if he's making an official report and doesn't believe what he's saying he might get demoted by the ESPer unit. Or just use the adverb, "apparently"
-the confusion relating the transformation of Ultron was spot on
-the epic of the battle seemed a bit minimalized by the smaller panels but balanced out but the fact they were included
-Ultron faces: very scary sight
-so Jantron finally manages to subdue Marvel Superman. This is actually a good thing if they want to believably keep him on a team of lessers
-wait a minute! He's gonna catch that thing?! Wasn't he just subdued. Wasted time leafing back ONE page. Oh well, guess not. Here comes a Superman catch...
-FOOM?!
-woah, got to admit that is impressive
-more NYC damage. One grunt is colorful but multiple (ongoing?) is just wasting him energy. Nope, he's not going to do it. Even if he stops the momentum the blasted thing is still going to crush buildings. Shoddy Stark tech! Thank goodness for the SHRA to keep it minor. *rhe*
-Carol's feeling muuuuuch better. And Simon is carrying a fragment since he can handle the tub with one hand
-good Avengers save though
-okay SHIELD is intel officers, don't they know if there is a level 10 on board. Natasha has a rank too? Aaaand anooother Olympian in love with her
-Now THAT was a cute 'heartfelt' thought balloon
-FULL SCALE WORLD WIDE WHITE ALERT! (sounds serious)
-And kudos to thought-balloons by 'Tasha thinking on the fly instead of interspersed bracketed inventory thoughts
-Comic Book Guy might agree Carol's self assessment \:\)
-Mole Man?! What's he doing here for one panel? Gotta dig up issue 1 now too
-Widow comes across as top notch 3 issues in a row now
-awesome cliffhanger grab. It seems Tony continues to live up to his CW-futurist-prepared personality

Neither was I.

> SPOILERS
>

Meh

> and the fight scenes between Ultranny and Sentry wasn't very exciting

Disagree.

> also tigra licking hank pym grossed me out

Perv. (kidding)

Seriously though... what the heck?! That was the single best part of the whole issue, and that's why the issue was a disappointment.

> Ares just feels a bit generic to me.

Yeah.

> And Wasp's hair is starting to bug me

Agreed. She's got nerve to put down Ultrona's hairstyle, whose hair looks 10 times better, imo.

> Too many butt shots

Okay. I'm confused. "Too many?" What does that even mean?

> my favorite moments
> Maria Hill getting knocked out ( still bitter about Civil War)

I laughed. I cheered. I ate popcorn.

> Thus leading to Black Widow Director of Shield

Kick arse! I'd love to see this happen permanently.

> Wonder Man's characterization, little insecurity moments and worrying
> about Carol were spot on.

Yup.

> The last page was intriguing because if anyone has a contigency plan
> upon his death its tony stark.

The mere mention of his possible demise was almost better than looking at hot babes drawn by Cho.

Don't think it's much of a secret... to him anyway.

Hated this. For once, I'd love to see someone try this sort of thing, only for them to break through the object and have no effect on its fall. Ah well, at least we got the latter.

SHIELD is a huge organization. I'm not surprised they didn't know. But I wouldn't have expected Natasha to have that rank. What the heck is Hill doing being second to Tony if Natasha's got this rank. Hmph.

Meh. Though I hoping he really is dead.

-thought one aspect of the ish was to show another example of Setnry as Superman, afterall Wondy and Ares were no help to subdue Jantron physically apparently (though it can be rightfully argued that maybe they were hurting from the monster fight or maybe it was an awesome Ms Marvel play).

Well, in issue #2, I recall that Black Widow specifically sa last issue that her "comm link to the Helicarrier is fried" after Ultron lashed out at the Monsters and Carol asked if everyone was ok.

Very nice catch! I must've remembered only something else attention grabbing from that page... the, uh, Mole Man skiddadling... yeah, THAT's it...

Um... was... circa 25 years ago. The Clash was a late-70s/early-80s punk rock group.

And I messed up a bit. It's Armagideon (but that translates to "Armageddon" in Rasta-speak) Time.
