Quick reactions to compare if you read along with the issue. The 'hmmm' lean toward the bad (ie not crazy about it) but could be swayed with proper exposition next ish...

Secret Avengers #27

Good: Grabber cover.

Good: Reading order footnote. [Though poor Event organization kinda negates the props.]

Good: Referencing Death of Captain Marvel. So, it seems clear IT IS the spirit of Mar-Vell back.

Hmmm: Kree-Priest's mind tampering to explain how she lusts and Noh bows. [Wish they would name the guy.]

Hmmm: So, Rhodey still critical and Avengers 26, read before the warning, spoils he will be fine and so will the Quinjet ruining any drama.

Bad: Thor gives CB a good buck up speech at the expense of the showing him as ridiculous wimpy, selfdoubting novice.

Bad: Art is only servicable.

Good: Avengers assume CM an impostor.

Hmmm: 17,000 dimensional perception streams is a neat detail. Seems a power up for how Cosmic Awareness is processed - good or bad.

Hmmm: CM beats Vizh. Kree-Priest's rebirthing process explains it?

Bad: MsM beats Val in 1. Not to mention Val is only here for 1 punch.

Bad: Brainwashed out to kill SA ends up rescuing 'em. Protector carries Rhodey oddly. We must assume that Quinjet defenses were online when CM fires it 'cuz how else does the 3 left behind (why only the 3) survive an exploding ship.

Hmmm: Again with the stunted racial progeny problems? Wasn't that once resolved already? Has Supremor been smoking with Cyclops? He is convinced PF can be harnassed to jumpstart a race?

Good: New Vizh has an upgraded transmission-manipulator installed (by WHOMEVER, but that's another nit).

Good: Funny bit by Rhodey assessing his sitch.

Bad: PF can jumpstart a race but only make cancer cells inert?!

Bad: Lopsided glasses. (Though it could be a unique Kree design.)

Bad: She listened to the tape a thousand times. She listened to the tape a hundred times. Make up your mind. (And change the channel - its hard to believe she was obsessed with the lust for a deadman back when Kree-Priest's mind tampering wasn't an excuse for her newfound love of Captain Marvel. Maybe that's why she choses that particular codename! ;\) )

Hmmm: Kree-Priest's is not smiling or frowning when they kiss - either would have been preferable in that panel.

Hmmm: Unclear how Kree-Priest diverted the PF. Unclear how Vizh expects tampering with the mind-tampering would affect the PF course.

Bad: Unclear how PF is arriving HOURS behind the Quinjet!!

Good: Thor's resolve.

Good: Intro of Jal-Ha - moreso ifffff she is immediately significant.

Bad: CM only kinda hurts Vizh again.

Bad: CM survives a hammer to the face.

Bad: Thor is (debatably) brutal here.

Hmmm: CM SUDDENLY beats Thor. Kree-Priest's rebirthing process explains it?

Good: CM finally starts to smarten up - but is it too late?

"The Phoenix will be here in a matter of hours."

"Hours?" What is it doing? Sightseeing?

I can't stand it.

Still, I liked this issue.
