That is one SEXY tag line (that hopefully won't get tired)!
First of all the last page SHOCKER throws all my page by page reactions up in the air! But since they were jotted down, might as well post 'em with your thread that was already started...
HEROES FOR HIRE #1
Okay, good cover 'cuz its got the Heroes to grab ya but terrible cover 'cuz
-2 of 'em don't even appear
-MK throws crescents not stars
-$$$$$ logo: is not even the hiring commodity, it's favors
The story itself is plays out like a standard street-level superhero team up to disrupt a drug trafficking operation. It's the art an elements that offer the title the potential to be a series contender. Not clear on what the format plans are at this typing. Enjoyed the art. All in all a good general issue but better potential than premiere.
Misty Knight is now making out like a poorman's DC's Babs Gordon doing Oracle!
Misty Knight does not have THAT many friends, does she? Besides how many will she keep if she keeps asking them to do vigilante justice on her say so?
Misty Knight should not be able to easily contact GR or Punisher.
Misty must have made arrangements previously for this type of operations (in spite of the last page SHOCKER) for Sam to simply accept the package, the job, and the voice. That's more backstory clutter to be told later unfortunately. Still waiting for all the recruitment backstory for the Secret Avengers!

The mystery allegience of Paladin to grab ya for the next ish. Guess he was satisfied with the hiding spot for The Odin Spear.
Widow, IDEALLY, would work in this type of title if she isn't on THE national superteam at the same time. Also, her highway heroics are just a little too unbelievable even by superhero standards. How did she survive that explosion? THe unclarity ruined it just like her recent thruway acrobatics in her own title.
Atlanteans have a drug named HOOK thats even worse on land. Kinda interesting but why she tied up in this crime as a premiere - and given the shocking ending?
MK fight was more easy to follow than the transport tussle. OTTOMH this was the first CLEAR use of bulletproof armor, right?
Lets see how far Elektra is planning on going and thus how far Misty is really willing to let her go - in this Heroic day and Age. Waterman is a neat alias but whats up with an Atlantean first AND last name like that?
Those 2 moles on Misty's cheeks make her look UGLY in her first impression for the reader
PHANTOM prenancy?! Phantom???!! No playmate for Dani?!! Seriously though, thought the side by side pregnancies was too suddenly pat anyways. However, still very curious about this. [Still have to read Blood on the Streets for the full SL wrapup.]
And then of course there is the fooour page epilogue to deliver one helluva a last page SHOCKER!
