    • It's clear the writer tried to inject an overdose of fun into this installment - and for the most part it worked out okay.

Agreed! Very fun! But too much squirrel.

    • Fun inclusion of chapter names. On the downside: it rips off Starfire's top-of-the-page series gimmick, it's takes up way too much page space, and it takes away from story when you add more page clutter with so many [funny but non-story] minimalist ID box captions.

No points off for mimicking Starfire, but I agree the titles are too big.

    • [Just like in Children's Crusade] Wiccan meets up with his "possible" spirit-mom, the Sultry Witch . [Sandoval and Almara should be doing her series! Although, they should knock it off with drawing so many long forearm lines when drawing men] Really liked the clever chapter title and ID boxes for this pair. It gives reason for the visit as it couldn't have been just to discuss a codename and the clear parentage of him [or her for that matter] is still a... notable challenge to process.

Yeah. Sultry. He's probably lucky he's gay.


    Quote:
    • nb. Pennyroyal. Some neat realworld trivia to look up later...

Yeah. Not all sweet-smelling history. It's a somewhat interesting herb.


    Quote:
    • Perhaps 3 pages discussing the importance of using a mage's codename was a bit much [but hopefully Sister Grimm was listening!]. Perhaps Billy should just change it to Magik or Green Warlock - as in inexperienced not archfoe [clearly, New Avengers, White Tiger, Power Man, Hawkeye, etc would not have issue with name copying ;\) ]. Perhaps it was "too soon" for Wanda to make a "NO MORE MUTANTS" cheap crack ['cuz, wow, did she sound creepy there].

Don't think it was a crack, really.

Sister Grimm is an awesome name!
Hulkling... just the opposite.


    Quote:
    • nb. IRL girl. Looked it up. HA! Very clever real world acronym for Doreen's fun ID box. Also, this is another example of SG being drawn very good in every title outside of her own series!

...


    Quote:
    • SHIELD froze all DaCosta's assets such that he can't pay his team??? That doesn't sound possible.

I doubt it's all of his assets. Getting money in the US might be extremely difficult.


    Quote:
    • Fun TV interviews page with cameos and comedy. Although necessary details, for exclusive readers, on the rejuvination of Cap and the absence of Whisperer and an elapsed WEEKS time since the Event conclusion, Pleasant Hill Omega #1, is severely lacking.

Anything not touched on really isn't that important to exclusive readers anyway.

No, Teddy, It's not "like Changeling or Earthling with more Hulk." You've got NO Hulk in you.


    Quote:
    • 2 more page just discussing importance of picking Avengers name variation was a bit much. And lame arguments at that. Maybe it was just Marvel's tease that they still own the Young Avengers copyright so to tempt readers to write in for another YA book? Ugh.

It was not about name variations. It was about being true Avengers or not.


    Quote:
    • Hill calling Barton pathetic?! After her PH showing? THAT's pathetic.

You want pathetic, see the meeting in the FalCap issue. So funny that Fury was removed so easily, but oh no, can't touch "Ms. Shrill." It would be too scandalous to, ya know, do lawful duty or anything. Ahem... sorry for the digression.


    Quote:
    • The scene with Mel at Clint's place was good. The footnote detail about the 'bug' was neat. But her apology felt halfassed and Plunderer just happening by felt contrived.

Great scene! Don't agree about the apology. She clearly feels bad... and is going to feel worse when he learns of the Triple Agent thing.

I'm not one to "ship" many characters, but I kinda like these two together more than I ever felt with Bobbie.

Not too contrived, imo. Just the sort of coincidence that tends to happen in stories.


    Quote:
    • All fun: Plunderer as the one-shot villain choice. The fact he PAID for his Plunder-bots. Personal lackey, Terry. 'What a wonderful' song parody. Hilarity of his losing history vs Squirrel Girl. Tippy Toe popping on his shoulder. Terry's phobia. The whole big battle.

...


    Quote:
    • Oh yeah, there's Cornonball smile on the last page again. His ANAD backstory was snubbed again. At least he got a cameo where POD, Vic, Ava or any background Zebra Kid did not, for that matter.

As if Zebra kids ever do anything interesting.


    Quote:
    • Good emotinal reason for Songbird to go off and be a TBolt... WAITAMINNIT! Berto wants her to be what now?! Ha! How would that work?

Who said anything about TBolts? She definitely doesn't need to be going back there. That would really ruin her.
