Right off the bat, Ms. Marvel is a complete dick to the kid, followed by Lady Universe being a dick too (two ladies being dicks )
Why is Hulk on this team (besides because the movie says so)? He's far more unstable than this boy is.
Even Cap - the only one to try and talk to the kid originally quickly goes all military on him.
And then there's Thor. Just a couple months ago he punched a kid in the stomach (his only crime, trying to protect his friend)
Now he goes all Valhalla on this child. And then he oddly insults the boy's father
Who the fuck is this guy with the hammer - because it sure as shit isn't the Thor I've read adventures of since he debuted in '62. Later he even curses out Cap because Thor isn't allowed to savagely smite him as the kid is restrained by Hulk.
Let's see, confused kid in an unexpected environment and Earth's Mightiest Heroes gang up to beat the shit out of him. I guess Hickman hasn't gotten the anti-bullying message.
Ms. Marvel can pinpoint throw something from orbit? This whole scene was done infinitely better by the Vision against Nefaria in Avengers #166.
And has no one bothered to read Quasar's logs on the Star Brand? He only had it tattooed to his face for a long while. Hell, Carol Danvers and Captain 'Monica' Marvel were part of the Starblast event.
I could care less for what broke the machine or who did it. When the heroes of the book act like complete and utter dicks, it's completely and utterly unenjoyable.
It figures you couldn't wrap his head around the genius that is Hickman's Avengers.
