    Uncanny Avengers 010



    Quote:
    Liked it (surprisingly) a lot. Really liked the art too! This Larraz/Curiel combo are 2 for 2 \(yes\) \(yes\) . Loved the perfect title! And it was neat to play along and see clear signs that something was amiss. It's a smart "twist" that it's actually Ultron (dominant) and not Pym given the il/logic of his Pymtron's actions (hardly explained) since his return last ish. Still, as good as it was...



    Quote:
    • premature cover choice

Nah. Extremely appropriate cover choice.


    Quote:
    • readers really deserved more itenary details of what Pymtron had been up to between his return last ish and now

Well, I'd have liked more about Shiklah.


    Quote:
    • weird not knowing if this is before or after Civil War which is concurrent in every other Marvel title

Not really relevant.


    Quote:
    • also the reference that RAGE OF ULTRON happened 'months' ago was a bit to topical for my taste; Marvel should be able to accurately footnote it down - maybe someone here can remind us - there's INVERSION, (8months)TIME RUNS OUT, INCURSION, 8 MONTH GAP and it seems they're saying 'Yeah, somewhere in there'

No real need to nail it down. But...

    Quote:
    • let's say... 'interesting' reveal of what kind of search for Pym was mounted between issues - lazy storytelling but interesting participants

No need for details.


    Quote:
    • who would Pymtron "HAVE A DATE" with - already?!

Hmm...


    Quote:
    • Deadpool/Shiklah feuding seems unfairly out of the blue

Really?! "Out of the blue?" Naw. See the current Deadpool series. She's pissed at him and has other husbands.


    Quote:
    • guess great minds don't think alike when they're sharing headspace 'cuz Ultron made some bonehead decisions

Always does.


    Quote:
    • it's GREAT that Cap called Jan in but he should have called in Vizh too or Stark or some other techie for consult

The more the merrier. But Tony's team should be off in space now.


    Quote:
    • what does "SCHA---" spell out at Avengers HQ? The theatre HQ right?

No clue. It would have to be that HQ.


    Quote:
    • "HALF LIFE 3"? Is that the HOT game kids are playin' these days? Never seen one TV ad for it (yet). Interesting subliminal name connection to the story itself, eh.

No. They were talking about the future, and DP asked if Half Life 3 had been released. It's kind of a burning question for some gamers if the game will ever be released. It's been like 10 years and still nothing.


    Quote:
    • doesn't really tell us WHY Pymtron would go to the HQ to hobnob with Cable and Torch but it move the story along quickly enough

Especially if he "had a date." Hmm...


    Quote:
    • that is one BIG EXPLOSTION to guess at their deathtrap escapes... probably TK shield - does Cable even have his TK shield, Torch can absorb the heatblast, DP regenerates, Damage Control repairs HQ?

Yeah. Big boom.


    Quote:
    • Wasp's 'purple shading' on page17 REALLY bugged me for no good reason after a masterpiece of drawing her

Agreed.


    Quote:
    • just a MINI Emp does the job to subdue him?! So quick and easy?! Bah. It took a whole team of Assembled Avengers more often than not!

They're building things smaller and smaller these days. But seriously, the Marvel Universe has black hole bombs that can fit in your hand that take out small towns. No biggie.


    Quote:
    • SHOCKING decision Jan makes to pull the plug on Hank; in some ways it makes sense but it also feels wrong - can't decide if she would be so... so... decisive

She believes it's Ultron. Of course she would.


    Quote:
    • great ending! Did he lower his aim or didn't he?! My guess/hope is he listened to his boss and not his heart

Me too. It looks like he lowered it. Now... which one is right? Cap or Jan?
