    15 Aaaargh! Was just getting use to accepting this arc happens after Hulk joins up with the team in AvX but here we get Carol in pre-Cpt.Marvel garb. AND not only that but Hill is demoted from director to acting commander. Ugh. More gratuitous danger-level designations. Sheesh! Reed gives up easy - he accepted Johnny as dead when he wasn't and here he gives up on his Avengers peers so easily.

Except that Johnny was dead... and then brought back to life to be killed over and over again. So I would view it as a necessary acceptance - except in light of Reed's unwillingness to let Ben remain dead back in Waid's run... perhaps not entirely consistent but I felt it worked in Hickman's story.
