Subj: It's a forgiveable lie, at this point

Reply Subj: But technically, Marvel may not have lied.

If Mephisto only gave Tony the IDEA and Tony ran with it,....

> Those are all some great thoughts regarding CW.
> Regarding the pro-reg mole, the answer is the traitor was more than just Hulkling/Hank Pym. Remember, Iron Man knew who the traitor really was and wouldn't reveal it to the pro-reg side team in recent issues of Frontline (except for Reed, apparently). These stories most certainly took place for over a 24 hour period. The whole issue with Hulkling was to set up the release of 42's prisoners to aid in the upcoming fight. If it turns out that Hulkling/Hank was the actual traitor all along, then A) That's real lame and bad plotting or B) The anti-reg side is screwed, because Tony was onto them all along and knew they would free the other prisoners and probably has a trick or two up his sleeve.
> Enough has been said about Reed (and several other character's) being depicted inaccurately. I'm gonna start leaving that point alone til the whole story has been told. Maybe we'll luck out and discover that there's been a reason for these depictions (and for me, that'd be awesome because I really want to like CW, and characterization's been a major obstacle).
> Lastly, regarding the Miriam Sharpe theory. I want to start anagramming her name and see if it comes up with some bad guy names. I think it's a great theory that she could be Mephisto, but if it's true, then Marvel has lied. Remember they said NO bad guys were pulling the strings behind the scenes. I dont mind a red herring, but a flat-out lie to keep me guessing is kinda sucky. Miriam Sharpe is definitely a suspicious character though...which is odd to say because I cant imagine any mother not acting the same way had they lost a child under similar circumstances.
> I can at least say this much: i'm looking forward to CW #7. I have a bad feeling it'll leave us open-ended and a bit inconclusive, but hopefully it'll provide all the right answers.

> If Mephisto only gave Tony the IDEA and Tony ran with it,....

Well, Mephisto by some definitions slowly corrupts his underlings and turns them against each other.

and dont get me wrong, if Mephisto was behind it all along, i'll be happy Marvel lied (whether it be kinda/sorta, or a fingers crossed kind of thing, whatever). I'd almost rather there be a bad guy involved at this point.
