> > I haven't seen a thread for this, but did people think of this comic.
Pleasantly surprised.

> > I thought it was okay, but it seemed too similar Secret Six. Didnt read it yet but how'd it compare to Identity CrisisDisc also about forming a 6villain team, right?

> > However I like anyway anything that focuses on B-list villains that normally don't get focus and its interesting to see some villains who don't like Osborn. However I wonder why Wonder Man would be with these guys.
Figure he didnt want to cowtow to Norman in his new Dark Avengers so he got thrown in the slammer on the same trumped up charges from his Front Line appearance. Probably Natasha was the same and got away?

> I enjoyed this first issue. It's definitely not the best LL story ever, but I liked it. I thought the first three pages were drawn very well; very spooky.

> I also liked the focus on Tiger Shark, and I couldn't help but feel sorry for the poor guy.
Agreed except the feeling sorry part. Hope they address his multiple artistic interpretations.

> He used to be a big-namer and now he's a pushover and Tieri played that up here. I found the two pages of the LL running rampant very nice, showing us that they did do some heavy damage for a while before being caught.
Didnt like the apparently arbitrary (retcontaminated) adventure added to MU canon.

> That splash page of the Grim Reaper in full gear was pretty awesome. Don't care about Hyde or Absorbing Man, but I'm glad to see the Grey Gargoyle around, and especially Nekra, who I hope will get more airtime in the following two issues.
Good six choices for me so far. Hope they address Death Reaper - maybe hers&Erics? Guess'll ha'fta add LL to the list of so-far-incompetant Norman bashers now.

> I guess Tieri took Man-Ape out at the last moment; he was supposed to be on the cover, in the background, but they replaced his image with lights.
And Morlun thanks him. ;\)

> That picture of Wonder Man on the last page was almost creepy, in a way, and I'm going on record now by saying that I seriously doubt he's the traitor since it's too obvious. There was an art error, though: When Eric Williams was stabbed, one picture had him stabbed in the left side of his chest, while another had him stabbed on the right. Whoops. In any case, I know the Lethal Legion untimately loses in the end, but this time I think it's the journey that's more important than the winning. We will see.

Yep, will reading next issue! Simon was a great cliffhanger/teaser surprise.

Also of note in the ish...

Livingston is a MU important lawyer.
Mr. Collins could be a disguise.
Warden Battle is an important name at The Raft.
Mr. Tillis could be a mole.
Prison 42 was a one-trick plot device mishandled since CW.
Dont recognize the stabber.
Neat that TS has another 'weakness'.
LIVE is neat cover for LIFE.
Dont like how Norman handles a potential blackmailer with kid gloves ie. letting him live.
Do NOT like using the IP armor assembling in motion AT ALL - even IFFF their is precident with IM armor!
Sentry Tower has pathetically (pet peeve) plexiglass.
Very good TS character development.
Have to check chronology for Hyde and Tomby with Hood's S.O.C...

I believe Tiger Shark keeps alternating between his human form and his mutated form, hence why we keep seeing him differently everytime we see him.
