No one posted when it came out in 2013. If it's considered in continuity then where would it place? Whether before or after Nova met Thor during AvX Prologue, their meeting here doesn't really jive, does it? On the plus side, Thor has had fun dynamic whenever him and Sam have appeared together so far.
The talking heads debate of "WHAT IS A HERO" seemed fairly balanced with worded opinions. But Cap's arguement that heroes should be allowed to wear individual 'uniforms' as opposed to 'costumes' didn't really feel that true to his Civil War stance that secret identities for heroes was the real issue with what do-gooders wear. [Sidebar: The profile of Cap's helmet looks weird the way the chinstrap is shown.]
Iron Man's awesome armor access to data gathering was presented very neatly. Still, it seemed a little convenient that Iron Man can access and scan superhuman secret identities and bio-verification that quickly only when the plot/pacing calls for it. There's no canon moment we saw that he should know it's Sam Alexander, right?
Cage's and She-Hulk's casual presence was force but, boyoboy, they did add to that excellent team rush on the final page poster ending. No need to even mention MODOK's revolving door cameo. It would've been nicer to see Jan speak up more. Overall, something like this would have made a better jump on .NOW issue than some of the ones we're getting - if the lineup was accurate of course.
I miss Dad and Dan.
