    ATLAS #1


    Quote:
    What did work...
    -one of the 3 covers

I'm really not fond of any of the "Heroic Age" covers. I would have preferred those covers show the heroes as marble statues, but to have the heroes just standing there is just wrong in several ways.

Don't really mind the cover wit the dragon, and I love the Namora cover.

    Quote:
    -the power showings of the glasses



    Quote:
    -story pacing



    Quote:
    -intro of that radio host



    Quote:
    -death of a major D-list superhero (or ½ of one anyways)



    Quote:
    -the idea with the backup story with interpretation of Delroy's dream for the readers in the same issue



    Quote:
    -(little) Agents of Axis action (finally) shown in their premiere issue with (modicum) characterization in another (retconned) Plan/Lao 1958 adventure where the villain, (oddly) called by his realname, is revealed as the Yellow Claw!



    Quote:
    Unfortunately, NOT sure about...
    -just ATLAS, sans Agents, as a title

Don't really care.


    Quote:
    -the (repeated) stagnant appearance of the team still basically the same since the 50s

Well, Marvel Boy dresses more sensibly. They all have reasons for not showing their age, if that's what you mean.


    Quote:
    -the first issue NOT starring the Agents but instead Delroy (not being a Triathlon/3D Man fan to start with didn't help)

Eh. At least they appeared.


    Quote:
    -the dullish coloring themes used for most of the locations/scenes



    Quote:
    -no dash of humor, especially from Gorilla Man \:\(

Yeah.


    Quote:
    -why sexmate Sheri was not introduced properly with a last name

Not really necessary.


    Quote:
    -Chandler casually sharing on the radio show that D and 3-D are one in the same (DR is over, secret identities are back in ;\) )

Secret identities are no more or less in than they were before the SHRA. The SHRA was never about secret identities. Some people use them; some don't.


    Quote:
    -how he seemingly used his strength power without uniform&glasses in the bar

He doesn't need his costume for his powers.


    Quote:
    -who he was narrating to at the hospital with Peggy when he talked to the readers but in 2 boxes addressed "YOU HAD BEEN ATTACKED" and "YOU WERE THERE"

Hal Chandler, Chuck's brother. In the same boxes, he says, "Your brother," and later refers to Hal by name.


    Quote:
    -why quotations marks were not used to indicate presumed sarcasm when he said "AWESOME" to being getting publicitiy as a suspected killer

Unnecessary.


    Quote:
    -how to enjoy any part of the one panel battle crop with a (generic) giant robot in Waikiki we will probably never see again

That's not a generic giant robot. That's M-11 of the Atlas team.


    Quote:
    -how the heck he (far?) fell down the well(?) in that poorly choreographed scene upon entering(?) that unsecured(?) HQ front

He opened the secret doorway, walked through it, and fell down the well that he didn't see.
