A fair share of fun BUT an equal amount of baffling elements...

All-New - All-Different Avengers #5

\(yes\) Perfect cover.
\(\?\) Average inside art.
\(yes\) Effectively forboding 1st page.
\(no\) Why/where did he have this data put into this PC only to be destroyed instead of directly into him - even presuming it's from the future and in spite of the question if he is from the future too.
\(yes\) More often than not pages and pages of 'holodeck-type didnt-happen suprise-misdirect' sequences just waste pagespace but this Sam/Carol was SO GOOD. Effective, topical, outlandish tip off. \:D
\(no\) It just struck me as... odd that Kamala would use her dream-mentor as the true identity of a ThorJane fanfic character.
\(yes\) Use of Ms.Marvel cast and her fanfictastic homelife personality.
\(no\) This time stamping from 4hrs ago to 2hrs ago to NOW read somewhat... jarring; what? she went to an A meeting then went underassembled to a Dreadbot threat then back to a followup meeting? It had me rereading to reprocess unnecessarily.
\(yes\) MsMKamala/SpiderMiles "Carpool" to work routine.
\(\?\) Remind me: What would be the distance from NYC to Jersey HQ?
\(no\) "Revolving Door" use of Mad Thinker.
\(yes\) Dreadbot threat level (albeit uninspired).
\(no\) Whether this is our Vizh or not, upgraded or not, the horizontal missile projectile maneuver still really bothers me as something he should not be able to do.
\(yes\) \(yes\) Creepy smile.
\(yes\) Readers didn't see the widescreen of fight to effectively having them choose a side: did she or didn't she.
\(\?\) Tony gave Sam leadership role (to axe members)?
\(\?\) Remind me of any example where we have we seen Vizh holo-project from his solar gem before? Sidebar: Have we seen Vostok do same in past?
\(\?\) Maybe proper call would be a suspension instead of firing with CSI investigation to follow (considering Avengers have done worse without getting even a slap on the hand). But maybe that would have needlessly slowed down the pacing. Still a believable/dramatic call to make.
\(yes\) Very good Kamala/NovaSam scene. The flashback sequence was helpful but maybe a bit spacehoggy.
\(no\) Soooo, was 'the rocket' Nova late for both meetings or just late from 4hours ago? Bah.
\(yes\) ThorJane was SO wrong about inhouse fighting but it works well cuz she is so naive to the team.
\(\?\) Maybe Sam is too hotheaded with reaction but the Red Alert did interrupt so maybe it was just impulsive reaction. We will know by end of arc to critique this 2nd firing. Still, it seems a minor infraction and poor leadership decision to make him ignore a Red Alert.
\(no\) Soooo, Jarvis did "take the job" and apparently did not stand by his interjected objections?
\(yes\) Friday. Even if we are to believe their HQ is wanting, using this is hi-tech smart to tie in this A.I. for monitor duty.
\(yes\) \(yes\) Creepy smile.
\(no\) Piggybacking vision instead of Iron Man or ThorJane.
\(no\) Vizh and CapSam arriving at same speen onto seen. Presumably they did not go by Quinjet.
\(\?\) Remind me is CapSam as fast as Undead Lasereyes Redwing?
\(no\) CapSam/IronMan chitchat about kissyfacing at Ground Zero of crisis.
\(yes\) Revisiting Equinox. NOT a "Revolving Door" appearance either because his 'future' comment brings a neat mystery.
\(yes\) Messy choreography in the beginning with the reveal of multiple versions, portal movements, and why only one has a Cap Shield.
\(yes\) \(yes\) Waitamminit - future mentioned, QENG pronunciation, that mystery Loki-looking vested mystery foe... IT IS KANG! Approriate 1st villain in hindsight!
\(no\) Ugh. The chronology of Kang after the recent Inhuman arc/defeat is just a pain that must be dragged into this.
\(\?\) Laser eyes used as force bolts. His vizh or ours - still annoying easypeasy plot device.
\(\?\) Maintaining contact visual and vocal thru the time portal feels like a... wrong easypeasy plot device. Ugh. We've seen Mjolnir move faster but apparently mystic vibes don't pass thru. Bah.
\(yes\) \(yes\) Jane Foster surprise.
