Quote:Mighty Avengers 007
Quote:Page by page reactions to compare if you read it...
Quote:Did we know about Mace and Ava's parents? What issue # please??! Terribly noted, regardless, even if it clears up the horribly done cliffhanger last ish.
Ava is Hector's sister, and we know Nestor and Maria are long dead, and Gideon Mace almost killed Hector before he retied (way back in Spectacular Spider-Man v1 #51-52).
Quote:She hijacked the Avengers priority alert?! That makes her a tiger techie too? So, THAT'S what happened in the last page cliffhanger. These (CRAPPY) signal pieces can do that?! Very jarring exposition on the very first page - where a more organic update would have sit better.
They're just communicators, right? Fancy walkie-talkies. I wouldn't call it hijacking, and it doesn't require any tech skill.
Quote:Pretty good artwork to start and set the mood though - and ended up really liking the story anyways.
Quote:Interesting deal with Bast. Kind of like a Werewolf By Night By Choice character. This felt like it was probably touched on and seems less jarring a reveal for some reason (but it still should've been footnoted). Didn't she have a spotlight ish in Academy? This really has me craving her to cross paths with Black Panther if only to compare avatarship. Cover props earned too.
And we've got another White Tiger with mind-control issues...
Quote:"WISHING HE HAD USED A CELLPHONE" Just a pet peeve here but didn't care for this supertext ID joke thrown in it seemed more silly to consider than serious as intended. Marvel has a looong way to go to porperly/logically communicate the superhero/cellphone dynamic of this day and age.
Quote:"JUST WALKED IN THE DOOR" Supertext ID's can be fun and fine if not dumb like this. Vic's was boring AND he was already sitting down anyways! Luke's and Jessica's boxes were fine.
Yeah, didn't like Power Man's.
Quote:Now that's what'm talkin' 'bout! Mace's backstory IS footnoted! Sweet, gonna have to check out this PPtSS #52 ASAP. Good job to whomever in the Bullpen pushed for this inclusion.
Get #49-51 too. That's the whole story.
Quote:Loved Jen's supertext pertinence and supervillain update.
Quote:Mon "DOESN'T KILL... ANYMORE"? Is this a intriguing "oo-oo" mystery tease or a frustrating unfootnoted fact that only other readers know?
If I had to guess it's a reference to Nextwave. Other than that, she's been very vehemently anti-killing.
Quote:The offputting part about Cage getting to the APRI before Ava was that it made it look like Jen wrongly knew more about Ava's obsession with Mace more than she did.
Eeeh... Ava was detained, and seemed to have a further distance to cover.
Quote:So, there's two Trasks? That's interesting. Jen and Cage go in plainclothes but Falc is there in costume felt defeatist to the scenario. [Heh, maybe this is a way to promote the theme of She-Hulk's new title?] Interesting legality discussed 'cuz they keep it short and sweet.
Krask. Yes. We've met Kevin and Kenneth before. Old Thunderstrike foes, and now members of the Hellfire Club (but not Inner Circle).
Really don't know why Jen ever Hulks In (is that the opposite of Hulking Out?)... 'cept maybe so guys don't ogle. But serioously, I don't see the benefits of her plainclothes-ing.
Quote:Awesome entrance panels by "Tiger". (Tiger still IS Bast, right?) Another comicbook fun fight ensues. Guess Jen wasn't expecting trouble so she only had on bra and panties to hulk out into - riiight, THAT's why she was baring skin! Speaking of skin, the other thing that helped make this fight fun to watch was the interesting new twist thrown in with what happens to Cage's indestructible skin. AND THEN...
Quote:They go and top it with a COOL and unexpected move by Spectrum! (So, there IS two Trasks, right?) Followed by a neat observation by Falcon to have readers get their moneysworth by having to backpedal to see what he (obviously) sees on Luke's back.
Quote:Krask, Mace, and now Cortex Inc. added to the mix. This helps balance the scales to make them more interesting foils for the cosmic-level street vigilantes the MA are being marketted as.
This continues to be my favourite Avengers book. Now more than ever.
City of Heroes is BACK!
