I was kind of annoyed that they went through all the trouble of naming the Hood's entire army on the preview page, and then guys like Mandrill and Shockwave ended up sneaking in out of nowhere towards the end of the issue. It's like, what was the point of the roll call, then?

This was a fight issue. But I totally agree that the fight was really hard to follow. Did Wolvering stick Luke Cage to block some bullets? I had to look, like, nine whole times.
But I also think we'll be coming back to this issue during the Skrull business for some subtle hints dropped all over the place.
Meanwhile, I love to see Jones knocking on the giant Avengers door. What is that an homage to? It smacks of something.
I have no idea how World War Hulk fits in to this right now. Grrr...
