    Despite it being on my No Buy list my LCS guy let me flip though it,(benefits of having one around the corner)

Saved $3.99 and without Byrne-stealing! (Since you had permission.)

    The art was gorgeous. I never saw Kitty destroy entire spaceships before (Laptop sure) but it was a cool image. Drax in space and talking? I dunno, don't remember that from the initial run (never read the Bendis stuff) and Gamora surviving a fall from the outer atmosphere?

A spaceship is technology and Kitty disrupts technology so I'm OK with what she did. Even if she never did it before. She may have learned a new trick. Or her powers may have increased as she aged. Or both.

    Ben was MUCH better than expected. I despised his characterization in Newish Avengers but he was pretty good here. Playing up the "I always wanted to be an astronaut' thing was a miss, the FF spent more time in space and Negative space than any group other than the GotG, but only by a hair. But it wasn't awful.

Ben is living in outer space now. Not just visiting. It's different. He's out there 24/7. Not sitting on a couch in the Baxter Building watching wrestling.

    Quill as King, that section of the book seemed like I was reading a filler issue of Invincible buy a guest writer. And the Big Bad at the end.. New? Never heard of her. If new then not presented well. As much as Uncanny Avengers' imagery threw me off, the introduction of the villain in that book was handled with much more flare and awe.

I kind of liked the Quill stuff. It felt like something we'd see in the cinemaverse if Quill was made the king of something.

I think Bendis was going for curiosity rather than awe with his introduction of Hala.
