    A-Force 002

    Ignoring the fact Daz still has (ugly) emo-punk(?) aspirations mixed with newfound (distressing) Harley Quinn punch-first-talk-later rollergirl ambitions;

Yeah. I even told one of the creators this was not an improvement for Dizz... er... Dazzler-- both in design and plot. However, as usual, it'll be a cold day in Muspellheim before I care one way or another about Dizz... er... Dazzler.

    ignoring that the Writer & Editor has yet to be reader friendly by providing some chronology footnotes with Medusa, Carol and Jen;

No reason to do this, because most readers really wouldn't care. Chronology is inconsequential to this or any other series. We know it takes place after Capt Marvel #1-2, because those events happen on Carol's first day on the job at Alpha Flight.

    ignoring contradiction that Nico cannot repeat her "UNMADE" spell against Antimatter even though pages before she makes it a story point of repeating a Wolverine-level regenerative healing spell by simply saying it a different language;

What contradiction?

    ignoring an encore of Captain Carol's bumbling by searching database for a light emitting superhuman when she is close enough to Spectrum not to mention that Aurora should be right there on the AF Space Station...

Yeah. Spectrum >>>> Dizz... er... Dazzler nine ways to Sunday. And I would have rather seen an Ultimatum appearance than the AFSS.

    this was a real fun read. The art is lovely. The story circumstances to gather this (soon to be A-Force) team do not feel forced/convoluted at all and organically is an interesting way of introducing Singularity to the 616("Prime"*ugh) world. Actually, the only forced element was making it seem reasonable that Medusa was carrying around a prototype teleport disc. This gaggle of gals had good gabbing going on - no problem there. The problem will be making a reasonable excuse for the team to stay together after this origin arc. The last page confrontation was a real good ending made better with the comical next issue blurb.

Yup. "Friends of Singularity" is a really lousy raison d'etre for a solid superteam.
