    Maybe I am putting the wrong intonation into the dialogue in Avengers, but to my ear it is so horrible I want to scream. Tony tells Miles, you aren't on a quinjet oh no you are on a space ship the quinjet ok that's in the hangar we though are in space. Are we to assume Miles was drugged and blindfolded before the flight? I am finding every issue contains some clunker of a statement which seems like it is only there to stop the reader thinking the writer forgot some detail, like the Avengers have a quinjet, or to let the artist know something, like to draw space all around the dang space ship. This happens so often, And comes from the mouth of Tony Stark so often, I am wondering if this is supposed to be sarcasm. There is loads to like in this book, but I like not this.

"You're looking at the engine, kid.
(We) Left the Quinjet in the hangar. That one's not up for interplanetary travel..."

The omitted pronoun is "understood" in conversational English.
