Huh. Technically? You're right. :)

Still, is Xenocide better? Just cause they're not Human? :)



(By the way, so you all know, I was kidding around in this thread, playing Plumber's Advocate. :))

Cap kills and has kills. These days. He killed right at the beginning of Brubakers series

Reed turned the first ones into cows.

Not exactly how you would treat a human.

Yeah, but Reed... historically, he's a douchbag. :)

Just read all 5 this morning (i had some catching up to do).

When read together it's a really good story so far, and there have been some kick ass moments, especially in number 5.

Clint getting nutso mad at the end is kinda understandable, he was completely convinced it was Mockingbird after the "October 12th" conversation. So maybe he's not feeling too heroic at the moment, do you blame him?

I will be glad to see them get out of the Savage Land though, and to see Thor and Cap get involved in the proper series.

Also, the cover for numer 8 is pretty sweet.

I wasn't a big fan of this issue.

Truth be told, I think it was actually the weakest so far.

The whole scene with that green haired chick from SWORD breaking out Reed Richards was a little hard to swallow.

And I was hoping that Reed's method of identifying Skrulls would be a little more interesting that just some machine he built. I don't know what I was expecting, but I felt a little disappointed.

And they're still stuck in the Savage Land? Is that going anywhere? :roll:

And I was also disappointed when they kept hinting in the last issue that Thor and Captain America were going to show up but they were nowhere to be seen in this issue. I guess they're going to be the guys who swoop in and save the day in issue 7 or something.

This feels like yet another Marvel event that probably would have been better if they just kept it in the Mighty/New Avengers books instead of making it a whole big company-wide crossover.

And $4 for 22 pages? WTF?

That'd be awesome. No wonder Ennis stole the line in Preacher. :)

It seemed to me to have more action and actual plot movement than any other issue.

Yeah, just got done reading this. IMO it was probably the best issue of the series and definitely the best since issue 1.
