Uncanny Avengers 010

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...

• premature cover choice
• readers really deserved more itenary details of what Pymtron had been up to between his return last ish and now
• weird not knowing if this is before or after Civil War which is concurrent in every other Marvel title
• 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'
• let's say... 'interesting' reveal of what kind of search for Pym was mounted between issues - lazy storytelling but interesting participants
• who would Pymtron "HAVE A DATE" with - already?!
• Deadpool/Shiklah feuding seems unfairly out of the blue
• guess great minds don't think alike when they're sharing headspace 'cuz Ultron made some bonehead decisions
• it's GREAT that Cap called Jan in but he should have called in Vizh too or Stark or some other techie for consult
• what does "SCHA---" spell out at Avengers HQ? The theatre HQ right?
• nice detail Johnny asking about the Return of the FF
• "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.
• great to see Cable doesn't have that giant backscratcher appendage; forgot he has no flesh left on arm for technovirus to infect - does he even have that virus still?
• 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
• 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?
• Wasp's 'purple shading' on page17 REALLY bugged me for no good reason after a masterpiece of drawing her
• 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!
• 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
• great ending! Did he lower his aim or didn't he?! My guess/hope is he listened to his boss and not his heart

I hated Wasp even more today than ever
