Toss in Jarvis' Tigra comment and you've got most of my little irksome problems with an otherwise pretty good book together.

Didn't Pym get some humanitarian award after all of the CW stuff? The guy has as big an IQ as Stark without his enhancements and has beat down anyone that's threatened his team. He's a hero through and through who had no more in the area of psychological challenges than anyone else. He's not liked by Bendis and will suffer for it just as Richards is regarded as the World's Biggest A-Hole by Millar and paid for that in CW. Personally I think Pym is one of the greatest Avengers of all time and the team is NOT an all star one without him.

Natasha..well, I'm pretty sure all things Avengers are Ultimatized so that didn't throw me at all. I still think she's not a requirrement for the team. You want a spy, there's..hmm.. HANK PYM! He can kick twenty times more butt than Ms Leatherbutt, hack into computers a thousand times better, and between his powers and the ants can gather intel faster than she can say, Das Vidana.

But Bendis does what Bendis does, and it's not as bad as Millar. That's how I think about Bendis books now. At least it's not Millar. He'd have had Tony banging Carol while they made plans..

Jarvis's comment was crude and totally out of line--and character. What could he possibly have against Tigra? Is Bendis inferring he has to clean her litter box? Or was it a clumsy reference to her 'betrayal' status during CW?

Yes, Carol's stupid, inane remark about Hank Pym made no sense--these people are supposed to be longtime friends and collegues who have fought the baddest of the bad in life-and-death struggles, who would die for each other. So the dissing is completely inappropriate.

And to say nothing of the fact that Tony and Hank worked closely on Clor. They're long, longtime associates--Tony shouldn't have let that remark pass.

Bendis has a fairly low opinion of humanity--that's all I can come up with. His work on the traditional title and NA certainly suggests that.

I like Natasha a lot, so I'm glad to see her on the team--she's a big plus for me, as is Jan. But Natasha needs to get her long tresses back.

The rest, I'm not so keen on. Wonder Man I could do without, especially in those clothes. Sentry? Yuch. Ares--well, he has potential. I'm not a huge Ms. Marvel fan either, and let's face it, it's really Tony's team anyway. Carol's just a figurehead.

Peace, CC.
