        -just ATLAS, sans Agents, as a title

      Don't really care.

    Just noting it will probably factor into the titles (lack of) staying power.

Well, "Agents of..." hasn't done them many favours. I am, however, more of an advocate for just Atlas. It makes them seem more in charge. They're not the Agents of Atlas. They're the Atlas (Foundation).

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

    Nah, meant its virtually the exact same team for 50 years realtime as opposed to sliding time. Always felt a little too been there, done that, bought the FF. Though their recent reboot has given them fair logic to keeping the core.

I see what you mean, but I like close-knit, closed groups. Besides, the point of this first arc is that they're getting a new member.

        -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.

    Just noting it will probably factor into the titles (lack of) staying power.

I suspect it's just to introduce Delroy, the new member.

And again, they haven't really had staying power so far.

    Just kind of a developing pet peeve. Before CW superheroes addressed each other by codenames which seemed more professional. This public naming felt bothersome just like in Age of Heroes #1 [which BTW, totally agree with you now about Faiza's inappropriate comment to see print].

There were still many, many superheroes that had public identities way before the SHRA.

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

      He doesn't need his costume for his powers.

    Couldnt recall. Thanks for clarification.

He got his powers from some "magical" stone.

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

      Unnecessary.

    But jarring to stop to interpret the lead characters intent.

The sarcasm was quite clear, imo.

        -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.

Meant unnamed giant threatening construct.

Ah... well, we see in Enter the Heroic Age that the giant construct is a Kree Sentry unit. The picture in this panel, however, is just M-11 fighting alongside Gorilla Man. Who they're fighting really isn't important to this story though.
