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.

Yeah. Its just bad bad writing. Typical Bendis crap where sometimes he just totally doesn't GET these characters. Its not that Jarvis can't be snarky, but if he is its going to be dry wit, not snotty crude comments.

I don't necessarily think Carol has to like Hank Pym, but it did seem a bit out of place.

Hank is totally Tony's "bitch" too. Then again, we know from his treatment of Peter Parker than Tony doesn't necessarily stand up for his little bitches.

> 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.

Yup.

> 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.

Natasha is good when used correctly. But there are about 100 ways to easily misuse her. And we know Bendis will commit to at least a few of them.

Wonder Man has always been as worthless to me as The Sentry is now. Ares I'm just bored with, and I honestly don't think that the "mythological figures inserted into a hero team" works that reliably, because even with Classic Thor and Hercules its sometimes been a real struggle. Now inserting someone like Ares into the modern Marvel "extra gritty" version of the 616 universe, the chances of it working are even less.
