    Some things had to be said. Or did they? Or were they? But maybe not these PBP reactions to...






    Quote:
    -certainly context cover, definitely a cheat too.



    Quote:
    -dont care for IM's mouth appeture or Hill's bandana on PrevPage. Good layout but no rhyme or reason who gets on the Roll Call it appears.



    Quote:
    -groaned at another issue with flashback segments interwoven with a random 'feel' to them but this turned out playing fairly straightforward and complimentary to the story. nb: So, it's been a month since Hood's arrest in, IIRC, The Initiative series after an unclear span of time following SIEGE.



    Quote:
    -Robbins read spot on.



    Quote:
    -maximum, maximum sounds pretty extreme security. The Raft Guard helmet insignia unfortunately looks like a SHIELD-will-never-die logo. O'Brien the guard seems clichely connable and hopefully NOT 'Michael' O'Brien suddenly with a family and corruptable.



    Quote:
    -then the yakkity yak starts. This must happen after Steve and Tony hug in Avengers Prime, right? Xavier is out of order tepe-tapping the 2 of 'em talking privately, right?

Considering Prime happens immediately following Siege, yes. (The three were taken away from the Siege battlefield, before cleanup.)

What's "out of order?" Does Steve actually want openness or does he just want to join the illuminati?


    Quote:
    -the guard just said the Raft was for superhuman criminals. Huh, this guy is a killer and clearly not human but allowed on Rykers. Still him and Hood's ox-like lackey were interesting with their carte blanche possibilities.

There's a whole lot of unkosherness about this Inhuman guy... even for an Inhuman.


    Quote:
    -more yakkity yak. Random humor balloons pointing to random heroes. In fact, hard to identify some of 'em. Is that Spidey tween MK and Cage? Is that Tasha tween Beast and Thor? Is that Sillymask Hill tween Wolv and Mock?

Yes, Spidey. His mask is webbing.
Seems to be Tasha.
I think everybody, except people like Thing, should have just been drawn with heavy fur coats. YES, FUR!!!!!!


    Quote:
    -ugh, is that a beard on the Beast? [This art team is not complimenting each other compared to previous works separately.]

Heh.


    Quote:
    -the Illuminati have no leg to stand on defending the secret keeping. But in the end the heroes will forgive 'em 'cuz, heck, what significance did they serve since Kree/Skrull anyways?

Frankly, I still don't see the difference between the Illuminati and any/all the secrets that Steve or Nick Fury keep. Loose lips sink ships. If more people had known about the Illuminati, it would have likely been an even bigger disaster.


    Quote:
    -oh, that WAS Spidey - he webbed up head protection. Wow, that City must have generated some aura of heat back in the day when everyone walked around the mountain snow in summerwear.

It would have if the heat wasn't kept back by a force field.


    Quote:
    -Hawkeye's comment about getting booted out of the clubhouse is curious, if not insulting. Are the two out of earshot or not? Is it Avengers Tower or Stark Tower? Whats going on with the Infinite Mansion too? Hawkeye's quiver looks very wimpy compared to the one in Widowmaker.

I think it's called Avengers Tower these post-SI days.


    Quote:
    -"I'M IN CHARGE OF SECURITY OF THE FREE WORLD."??! He said what now?!

America is all of the Free World, dontcha know? No other country is actually free. *winkwink*


    Quote:
    -Thor tries to play peacemaker [maybe he wants to have a belated go at arguing with Tony first ;\) ]




    Quote:
    -"YOU'RE OUT!" was a smart thing to say. "HOW MANY INFINITY GEMS ARE THERE?" was a dumb thing to say.

Indeed. It's not like these people haven't met the gems before.


    Quote:
    -giving Queen Medusa lines was good. Having her mistakenly state/assume to know what BB said/did was odd. So was Logan's nickname for her - actually had to read that over to figure out what he meant. At first thought it was his clue source of his super lie detector showing [super in this sentence was not a compliment].

Well, she should be somewhat sure that he didn't say anything. After just learning of the Illuminati, she shouldn't be so sure about anything he actually did though. I guess she's as shocked as any of us that BB confided in a nobody.

It was so much like Logan to call her Hair. So totally unphased by her regality.


    Quote:
    -"WE PUT THEM BACK"??! And this man is charge of the World? It sounds awfully naive to find enemy WMD's and put them back after admiring them. And put them back where? He doesnt even know how many there are?

That is the question. Where should one put these things for safe keeping?


    Quote:
    -Ertzia has a lot of oddness about him that was too distracting. Left behind just 'cuz he is old? Put in USA jail 'cuz extrdition to Attilan was not an option? Producing some red something is supposed to be intriguing? Gives up his King's secrets without shame or fear of being yelled at by BB? ... oh, right.

Very peculiar guy he is.


    Quote:
    -very cool decompressionvelopment with Whitney. In fact it would have been a much better final page if the top and bottom panels were reversed.

Frankly, it seems rather dumb for anyone to have scars on Marvel Earth, even and especially Doom. Getting rid of them should be a cakewalk with the technology that exists.
