    Its from YA4...

And the following ish...
Young Allies 5

was nice. Not epic but nice. As was the cover.

Nice that all the legacy disinformation made for a good conclusion revelation. Despite the early concern/dislike for the enemy origins this probably played out better in monthly installments, in some regards, by getting readers heads buzzing 'bout Bastards more than it will in TPB. 150 days vs 150 minutes to finish the arc makes your investment last longer.

The son&dad in panel 1 did not really artistically match them in panel 2. But worse than that nitpick is that the time gaps with the prologue did not flow very well.

Nice fight sequence, finally, with the two teams clashing. Decent fight results too.

Gravity wanting/thinking to kill/execute felt/seemed a debatable character direction/urge.

Surprisingly, that was a nice splash page moment/usage highlighting the real 2 powerhouses on the YA.

The splash page of the Avengers was understandable and obviously overwhelming for the YA but underwhelming as a reader. You're late pals.
-Cage is even more embarrassingly underdressed since becoming Tbolt leader and he uncharacteristically approaches Angelica, not to hit on her, with that invite but to show he carries... yep... business cards
-aww, MA Spider-woman illogically tags along with the NA trio just to intimidate Anya to switch from Araña to Spider-Girl on a silly whim
-aww, Cap makes a Toro connection to the WWII Allies/Invaders ain't that nice. Would've meant more if 'Bucky' dared Nomad to stick with Bucky
-Ben is fine but the doohickey he introduces will predictably be forgotten when it should actually appear in almost every MU comic from now on after a hero hands a villain over to the cops

However, in the end feel no urgency to see this team actually form. See no reason why the Avengers would seeeem to encourage it. And feel more intrigued by the Bastards than the Allies. Hmmm... In fact over seeing them return as an (hard to imagine why) official team - have more curiousity, ATM, to see if The Raft ends up with as many artistic interpretations as Utopia has.

Superior is a neat, yet not so nice, 10 year old supervillain. Readers can continue to enjoy the mystery of his origin details not being revealed. His return will be... nice to see.
