    WTH?!! Did I miss something?!!
    Venom doesn't trust the Avengers can take him down so confirms the Thunderbolts can and then quits and runs off. Since the cancel of the 2nd last Secret Avengers run, Agent Venom's association/status with The Avengers has been tenuous at best - if not completely vague! Next we see Flash/Venom agreed to the Avengers suddenly shipping him off as their best new envoy choice and he's already a welcomed member on board faster than Iron Man was during his space vacation arc?!! (Not to mention this totally minimalizes the pitch of the new NOW Captain Marvel series premiere where Carol just was 'uniquely' given the honor as outer space resident-emissary for the Avengers. [Although, the last page promises to help explain things with our NEXT purchase.] It all happens this week in...

Agreed 100%! WTH?!

    WTH #2: How is issue "#14" a special anniversary issue instead of #12 or even #13?? That just seemed wrong right off!

This series began with #0.1 in 04/2013. Issues have not been monthly.
I can totally understand them wanting to wait until the Jean Grey thing was done for this special issue.

    And how creepy "wrong" is it that Quill would rather shack up with Veranke than Kitty Pryde after their wonderful infatuating introduction in the immediately preceeding issue Trial of Jean Grey issue?!! At least his connection with his father, J-Son, improved one iota... before he was sentenced to execution by him.

Well, yeah, maybe Veranke... but even this Kitty Fanboy would have trouble choosing if we were talking about Lyja. I often ask myself why I think about Skrull women so much... and just green women in general... and blue... and red... pink, gold, silver, spotted sometimes... I chalk it up to too much Star Trek when I was very young.

Quill's a very weird guy. This doesn't seem all that abnormal for him.

    While the space cantina scene was admittedly believable fun, the newfound freindship with Drax and Flash was... jarring. Speaking of Drax, somebody posted the attached page discussing him on the bulletin board. Never read the Annihilation issue and they never said why he was calling out to Cammi. Why was he? And who is Yvette?

Eh... don't think it was a very friendly situation between Drax and Flash. Drax seemed more perturbed. He was like, "Look, if you're going to be here, you gotta get better weapons."

Cammi meant a lot to him.

Yvette is his dead wife, Heather's (Moondragon's) mother.

    Had to (go to the trouble to) look up Maxilin the Accuser's name. That's a nitpick. But his fight to take out Gamora was with impressive results. Many an Avenger should probably avoid going mano a mano with him.

Accusers are badass.

    Here's my review for The Groot backup story: I AM GROOT. I AM GROOT. I AM GROOT. I AM GROOT. I AM GROOT. I AM GROOT. I AM GROOT. I AM GROOT. I AM GROOT. I AM GROOT. I AM GROOT. TIRING YET?!! I AM GROOT. I AM GROOT. I AM GROOT. I AM GROOT. I AM GROOT. I AM GROOT. I AM GROOT. I AM GROOT. I AM GROOT. I AM GROOT. And nice art too.

I am *not* Groot. Squirrely things must die.

    No Angela(WTH?!) by the 3rd backup was disappointing but the promise of the Return of the TRUE Guardians of the Galaxy more than make up for it. They seem affected by the AoU time fracturing but fail to mention that Vance is already stranded in the past at Knowhere. Not sure what to think about Geena apparently filling in for Nikki though...

I think Marvel is realizing Angela just wasn't all that great of a catch.

Time. Just because Vance is stranded in the past doesn't mean he isn't in the future. While I am surely typing this message, right now, I am also doing other things in the past and hopefully in the future.

But yeah, where's Nikki.




City of Heroes is BACK!
