    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.

I finally read the book and I enjoyed it. Quick pacing. Nice mix of characters. Plenty happens. Twist ending.

    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.

I disagree. Nowadays, you can't start slowly or else your book gets axed before your first story arc is done.

Although it's not nearly as shocking as the classic reveal in Thunderbolts number one, I see this as a similar twist, because it changes the meaning of everything you'd read or expected in issue one.

I like that we find out. I'm so sick of mysteries that multiple years to develop. (Skrull story in Avengers, I'm talking to you)

    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 hope you're wrong.
