    • This cover is so frustrating. Clearly it appears to be symbolic using DaCosta (with glasses) -sans Avengers Five- vs SHIELD but not a very good image choice to go with.

Well, it's a very cool cover. Too bad the story was nothing like it. I'm not a fan of kaiju or giant robots, so blech.

    • The inside art is good enough.

    • okay, now it's registering... AIM Island is DaCosta's floating "Avengers" HQ base and Barbuda is a real island for AIM. Although, it still confuses me WHY DaCosta is doing it this way. So, floating island is off California and real island is in the Carribean? Weird. And now, the goto backup base for New Avengers is at the South Pole and not

Yes. Barbuda is, apparently, the very real world Caribbean country, Barbuda.

AIM also had the island of Boca Caliente at one time, and they still might, but it hasn't been seen.

    • Power Man is acting unprofessional and whiney in the middle of a battle.

Yeah, I would have dumped him just for this, if I were White Tiger. But then, I would have dumped White Tiger for her shenanigans long ago.

    • Yeah, no, Clint did not know Mel was a mole. But shouldn't Clint have gotten that SHIELD all-units code too?

You would think, right?

I liked the scene of Songbird lashing out at Clint, even if I didn't like it.

    • Whisperer vs SHIELD was fun. He holds them off with his gadgets. Good showing mixed with a dash of SHIELD jobbing. He shows up Hawkeye too.

If he keeps beating up SHIELD goons, I want a Whisperer series!

    • Really annoying to see the Avengers logo on Avenger Five's guantlet. Half decent giant fight only because of the play by play.

I guess.

    • Clint vs SHIELD was not fun. They had range guns fercryinoutloud not to mention Clint had no backup bows in his HQ. On the plus side at least he lost. Kudos for the bruises he gets too.

Eh. I thought it was fun, even if it wasn't logical.

    • Good Gen.Maverick character moment. The book needed this since he got better spotlight than 6 New Avengers on the Roll Call page - combined this ish.

I found the General to be too OTT and unnecessary, just for exposition. The New Avengers actually got some character moments.

    • Pet peeve about referring to Dum Dum as a common Robot. His Man On The Wall unique version of A.I. His mention of Hill on the Hill feels like this book still has a very weak crossover connection to the Event. Even the Whisperer as whistle blower seems like a comparitively minor problem to throw so much manpower behind when supervillain inmates are (presumably concurrently) revolting.

I don't think it was referring to him as a common robot. It's just a minimalist caption.

    • Effective Clint/Mel hallway scene.


    • Closing with the "good guys" and NA personel escaping to the Savage Land starts out uninteresting but inoffensive with page 19 and the mystery voice. Then page 20 brings the spit take! Cannonball is back?! Cornballing to return?! Is he serious about his power protecting against the T-Mist?! And more importantly WHEN?! And WHY?! And we will see if Owen/Franklin tweaking affected his wife and child next ish.

His blast field protects his body from major damage. Why wouldn't it shield him from T-Mist like probably any other force field?
When and why what?
Dunno about cornballing, but the fun is sure to escalate!
Yeah, I still wanna know where the kid went after being in Pod. I hope these things are not ignored.

HEY! Everybody in Savage Land! Our Lord Magneto's X-Men and Berto's Avengers! Of course, this is probably happening in same weekend the X-People are going to the future... or whatever. Darn. But I want an interaction!

City of Heroes is BACK!
