: This was another excellent issue of this great
: new series. Fallout from Civil War#4 hit,
: with everyone (particularly Misty) trying to
: deal with the death of Goliath. I liked
: seeing Misty rip Iron Man a new one.
: Although he's still a Grade A jackass,
: Palmiotti and Gray don't pump it up too much
: in this title.
: Meanwhile, the black market Skrull organ
: transplant storyline begins, making an
: interesting mention of the Skrull Kill Krew
: mini-series from years back. We also learn
: more about the new Tarantula, discovering
: that there may be scientific genius behind
: that violent demeanor of hers.
: And the end of the issue was also a treat.
: Misty and Colleen reunited with Luke Cage,
: and Misty tried to talk to Cap one on one
: instead of pulling an Iron Man and luring
: him into a trap to force the issue. Word of
: advice, Iron Man: no one is going to trust
: someone who needs to trick a person and lure
: a person into a trap designed to take the
: person down in order to force that person
: listen to you.
: That said, that damn Paladin turned traitor
: and took everybody out, including his own
: teammates as well as Cap and Luke. Things
: don't look good at all! As of the end of
: this issue, the resistance has been
: delivered a mighty blow -- Captain America
: has been captured! However, I suspect that
: Shang-Chi, who had become aware of Paladin's
: plans, slipped something (like a special
: pill maybe) to the Capster to help him
: counter the effects of the gas. In any case,
: I can't wait to read the next issue to see
: what happens next! Man, these tie-ins are
: ten times better than the main CW mini!
: And now, according to the solicitations
: regarding H4H#4-5, we'll be seeing the
: return of Ricadonna, more old villains, and
: the return of the Corporation!!!
: --Previous Message--
: Well, of course I picked up "Heroes For
: Hire" #2 yesterday, and once again I
: was summarily impressed with it.
: We get to spend more time with some more of
: the cast this time, including Colleen,
: Palladin, and Shang-Chi, and the story
: really moves at a good pace. Misty's
: conversation with Iron Man was great. I
: really liked the way those two interacted,
: as well as Colleen and Humbug, and Misty and
: Colleen's reactions to Luke.
: Speaking of Cage, he really is written very
: well here. We see his loyalty to Cap, his
: cynical attitude ("Im bad ideas, this
: one just shot to the top ten"), and we
: also start to learn a little more about the
: reason he went Anti-Reg -- much more, I
: might add then Bendis managed to give us in
: that awful issue of "New
: The cliffhanger with Palladin selling out
: his team was shocking but so in character
: for him! He even foreshadows it, looking
: back! Although I wonder where Orka was -- I
: guess they didn't need muscle for this gig.
: About the only complaint I have about this
: team is that I don't really see what Black
: Cat offers, or why she is on the team. If
: it was pared down to Misty, Colleen, Humbug,
: Shang-Chi, Tarantula, and Orka, I'd be cool
: with that. I doubt Palladin will be working
: with the team any time soon!
: I am very happy with this book and am
: finding it to be the best team book I am
: reading right now -- far ahead of both
: "New Avengers" and the relaunch of
: "Justice League of America," and
: maybe a hair in front of "New
: Excalibur." The mix of quirky
: characters, solid writing and art, and good
: action makes this book a winner all around.
