    Nova 008 (2016)

    A nice cover but utterly meaningless. It is not canon but does beg the questions: 1. How many satellites does Stark have? 2. Is that the AFSS? 3. Will Marvel commit anytime soon and confirm that SWORD is disbanded/defunct/deader than a doornail?

    Uuuuuuuuh what happened to the conclusion last issue where Nova turns down the Avengers help to join him on his (repetitive) personal quest to find his dad? It will be really annoying if it's the same one going on in Avengers but not footnoted anywhere that he changed his mind.

Pretty sure it is. He didn't turn them down last issue. The issue just ended with Tony asking to let them help.

    Spidey's line about "THE CERTAIN DEATH" was funny. Nova's "VERY NOT GOOD" line was, well, not very good.

    Who is saying "STAY CLOSE CHILDREN"? Piotr Rasputin not bothering to Organic steel up? Maybe it's artistic license? Can anyone confirm if this is before or after Apocalypse Wars (and Colossus trapped in the future)?

I'm hoping that was an art error and Piotr was steel, like he was the panel before.

    What issue did The Thing (&GotG?) arrive on the scene?


    Did Marvel actually commit and show Fake-Thor beat She-Hulk at arm wrestling??!!

Well... you know... she did just beat Odin a couple months back.

    Did the colorist miss the memo on Rogue's hair color? Did the artist try to draw Kitty by mistake? Did the writer really feel that Rogue would not know who is on Tony's ANAD Avengers???!!! It felt kinda insulting she gave Sam the bum's rush - but maybe that was the story point made later on. It was clear that Nova was being kept out of the loop but that was the whole 'bit' for too many pages.

Thought that might have been Kitty before her name was mentioned. And the costume looked more purple than green. More art errors? I guess the writer didn't know about the teams meeting during the Pleasant Hill thing. But yeah, it was the point of the story, for worse or worst.

Believe it or not, that's supposed to be Blue Marvel.

    Sam's mom is (still) nice. She has some nice lines and arguments. It'd be nice if Sam gave up Avengers for her, for now, but it likes ain't gonna happen.

Wonder if Tony got her permission for the field trip in ANADAvengers like he did for Kamala.

    Okay. When the story switched to ONE, TWO, and THREE WEEK LATER time stamped panels - gotta say - it made me scream in my mind a little bit. Sure, it's any easy No-Prize juncture to slip any chronology inconsistencies but it would be more fan friendly to actually give readers more footnotes in this ANAD Age! It's bad enough trying to place characters during the last 8 MONTHS with almost no info after the post-SW relaunches. For example, the Iron Man inavailibility can't be his current arc in China 'cuz Rhodey is alive in that. So, that means it confuses Shellhead's chronology that much more too. SHEESH.

Yeah. All those weeks just really throws a wrench in Civil War II. Good thing I really don't care about NINO or his book.
