Just getting into Irredeemable Ant-Man run - and it's good stuff! It's the little things (yup, that's right). An iredeemable protagonist. The portrayal of Pym. Daily routine of SHIELD agents. Poker chats. Costume upgrades. Punching a jugular. Ant races. The Wolverine/HYDRA cameo crossover (yup, that's right). Ant-man vs Ant-man.

Odd that Maria Hill could/would authorize Mitch to run around with half a face not healed but then again NYC is used to it.
Odd that SHIELD agents have not seen Nick Fury but then again the last MA ish had agents unaware of who the ranking officer was when Hill went down.
Odd that Pym designed the new Ant-man suit with middle arms similar to Stark's suit for Spider-man but then again the two are were buddy buddy before Stamford.
Odd that Eric has evaded capture so long given his impersonation of an Avenger, the capability of SHIELD, and the his inexperience(after 6 months MU time?) but then again I've read 2,4,5& 6 so far (8 just came out, right?) and my have the time frame of his origin wrong.

Anyways, the series is still worth reading. With fine Avengers touches so far. The ending to #6 was fun with Ant-man simply 'checking out' and critique of Carol Danvers. It's the little things \:\) . And now the MIGHTY AVENGERS are promised for issue #7! The preview looks like it'll have even more ir-read-eemable guilty pleasures: http://www.popcultureshock.com/irredeemable-ant-man-7-preview/41344/


> Odd that Maria Hill could/would authorize Mitch to run around with half a face not healed but then again NYC is used to it.

And I don't think there is much more healing his face is gonna do. Besides, as Hill mentioned, Mitch was the only agent she had trained and qualified for the particular mission.

> Odd that SHIELD agents have not seen Nick Fury but then again the last MA ish had agents unaware of who the ranking officer was when Hill went down.

And given the size of SHIELD and the sheer number of agents in the organization worldwide, its not that surprising that there are those who have never seen Fury.

> Odd that Eric has evaded capture so long given his impersonation of an Avenger, the capability of SHIELD, and the his inexperience

He didn't really impersonate an Avenger, anymore than Erik Josten or Bill Foster were impersonating an Avenger when they used old Pym identities. As for SHIELD, keep in mind that they have a lot of other priorities right now, and Eric is a pretty small target.

And issue #8 also has an appearance by an Avenger...
