Am I correct in the interpretation that Hulkling in the guise of Hank Pym is the spy in Tony's organization? Bear with me, I realize I am stating the obvious. Story inconsistancies throughout this issue give me pause in assuming this is comepletely accurate. Cap's team has known about Tigra, and I get the impression for longer than the duration of Hulkling's infiltration of IM's forces. To start CW 6, Hank is talking with Miriam Hill when a low level SHIELD agent interrupts them needing Pym's assistance. Obviously, the agent is Hulkling. In his own words Hulking states " ...Pym's been drugged and unconcious since I knocked him out and replaced him back in Arizona this morning." Tigra's been the spy for over a week. I get the impression Cap's known longer than one day. Could there be more than one spy on IronMan's team?
I am still holding out hope it might be Mr. Fantastic. I've never seen Reed's personality resemble the emotional yoyo it has become. One panel he is cold, dispassionate, almost soulless (Clor surgery). A panel later he cares about little kids and Sue and Johnny not facing incarceration and how he had the stones to stand up to the president of the USA. Later near the end of the book, he has the look of soppy milquetoast again as the traitor is revealed and both forces stand ready to oppose one another again. He has the look of the only hero not wanting this inevitable confrontation. Everyone eles' jaws are set and looking very volatile and ready for a fight. Kudos to McNiven's artwork on the subtleties of human expression.
Could there still be another spy in Tony's ranks? Could it be Reed? If not, I still get the impression Reed may switch sides during the final battle.
And to enforce Dr Shallots theory that Miriam Sharpe might be Mephisto in disguise, I found it interesting that the story switches from the scene with Miriam to Dr Strange sitting in the middle of what might be a pentagram.
Holding out hope for the redemption of Mr. Fantastic, and all the heroes.....
