ah.. I enjoyed the fight scene-- it should have been much longer, though..


odd stuff:
Spidey snatching the baby then giving it back (ooh, I guess it was a "is he a skrull?" moment..)

Doc spazzing out in the fight, then, what, being overcome by some demon force, spouting a whole bunch of jibber-jabber then it's over? flashbacks to DisAssembled's climax.. you know, for all the smack that Joe Q talks about Strange's magic powers needing to be redefined beyond the "deus ex machina" devices... never mind..

The villains crew:
What's Vermin doing there? He's a dimwit 'monster' villain; last I remember, he was cured.. if he relapsed, why join the Hood? What'd he get promised? a warehouse full of cheese?

The Griffin; last I remember, he had degenerated into a straight-up monster, and fought Namor in his 90's series.. what happened?

Living laser- he's in his energy form, he should be the most powerful/maneuverable of everyone there (Like Monica Rambeau), but, well, he seems to be doing the least.. and wasn't he involved with Modok recently?

The Answer-- wasn't he dead? what were his lame powers anyway?

Blackout-- isn't he, like, a vampire? what does he care about robbing (non-blood) banks?

Purple Man? didn't he get pounded by Cage early on in the series and re-jailed?



---and then the end--
Ms. Marvel pulls a Tony and let's them go just this once? odd..

and uh oh, Jessica finally decides to register-- does the baby have to register? and will Stark expect Jessica to snitch on her husband? oooohhh....

> Spidey snatching the baby then giving it back (ooh, I guess it was a "is he a skrull?" moment..)

I guess he wanted to avoid any collateral damage (after aunt May...).

> Doc spazzing out in the fight, then, what, being overcome by some demon force, spouting a whole bunch of jibber-jabber then it's over?

That "some demon force" was Zom, or an echo of Zom. Zom is the insanely powerful universe-destroyer, a small portion of which Dr.Strange merged with to take on the Hulk during WWH.
That was an unbelievably irresponsible thing to do, and the psychological backlash plus what appears to be a trace of Zom left in him explains a lot about his weakened abilities lately, as well as why he had to quit.

>flashbacks to DisAssembled's climax.. you know, for all the smack that Joe Q talks about Strange's magic powers needing to be redefined beyond the "deus ex machina" devices... never mind..

More like "Daemonus ex machina" in this case. Even Umar (Dormammu's mean sister) was afraid of Zom. And she ****ed the Hulk into unconsciousness...

> What's Vermin doing there? He's a dimwit 'monster' villain; last I remember, he was cured.. if he relapsed, why join the Hood? What'd he get promised? a warehouse full of cheese?

Who knows? Marvel hardly follows the lives of their villains. But Vermin was sexually abused in his childhood, and he could be suffering from a split personality. And his biological oddity would make it more complicated...
Also, the predilection of rodents for cheese is overrated. Mice actually prefer sweet stuff. But it's pretty hard to pin a sugar cube on a mouse trap...

> The Griffin; last I remember, he had degenerated into a straight-up monster, and fought Namor in his 90's series.. what happened?

His biology is even less stable. He could well go through cycles of being more human and being more animal.

> Living laser- he's in his energy form, he should be the most powerful/maneuverable of everyone there (Like Monica Rambeau), but, well, he seems to be doing the least.. and wasn't he involved with Modok recently?

Are you kidding? Living Laser is the most all-over-the-place villain ever... at least PART of him is on the way to the Andromeda galaxy in the form of a laser beam; part of him is imprisoned in a Stark energy storage facility; part of him seems to have transcended into a new state of being after the events of "MODOK's eleven"... and this one could be a total new version. It's not so strange... if you break a hologram to pieces, each shard still contains the whole image. And he is after all a living hologram, sort of...

> The Answer-- wasn't he dead? what were his lame powers anyway?

Dead, replaced, resurrected, whatever;... and actually, his "lame" power was that he could instantly develop a power to counter a superpower that was turned against him (hence the name). At least that's what I came to understand. I think he's cool; he sacrificed his life to save Vanessa Fisk. Plus he actually has a pretty cool name.

> Blackout-- isn't he, like, a vampire? what does he care about robbing (non-blood) banks?

Is this the Blackout who was squeezed through a black hole, went insane and controls the Darkforce?

> Purple Man? didn't he get pounded by Cage early on in the series and re-jailed?

That was before the Civil War, even. In fact that was almost a year ago, Marvel time... He was in MODOK's eleven, if you recall, hale and healthy. Probably escaped again.
Why wasn't he put in 42?

> Ms. Marvel pulls a Tony and let's them go just this once? odd..
After what happened with the symbiote attack? Nahh.

> and uh oh, Jessica finally decides to register-- does the baby have to register? and will Stark expect Jessica to snitch on her husband?

He didn't expect Spiderwoman to. And we don't know that Danielle has super-powers. Plus, I haven't seen her talk yet.

"Danielle Rosa Cage, you are required by law to register your name and powers under the Superhero Registration Act. Do you comply?"
"UuuuUuuwuuuwwww..."
"Is that a yes or a no?"
"Ububububabawww.."
"Great. Now sign here... and here..."
"Bl."
