Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I picked up the new Heroes for Hire series today and was not pleased at all.

While I liked the idea of Misty Knight being a handler for random Marvel "Heroes", and I enjoyed reading the interactions and how well the whole story was written, and the fact that an introductory mission could actually be completed in the first issue of a series, that's where it all ends for me.

Not giving the full details of my problem with this series, since I don't feel like saving everyone 4 dollars tonight, but I will say this: turns out Misty has a mysterious associate feeding her information for her new setup, and in a move that makes me seriously doubt whether I'll buy issue 2, Marvel decides to reveal who it is and how that person is connected to Misty's new setup. They really should have waited a few months to ruin this book by revealing this secret.

Too bad Marvel wasted what I thought was a good story idea. I highly doubt this series will make it into double digit issues.

I read it and I'll admit it's not as good as the first two volumes of Heroes For Hire.
The first volume being Power Man & Iron Fist.

Make this title fun (like Ostrander's H4H) and I'll stick around.
And if they're going for obscure characters which no one really cares about, why not put Mort The Dead Teenager in there? Amp him up for the new generation. \:\)
