This was not what I was expecting but I loved it! New title starts off like the old and then throws a wonderful curveball at the end. Thank you Abnett and Lanning for being you. This book makes me happy to be a comic book geek.

Just as I suspected, this was basically a direct continuation of Heroes For Hire, and the same quality that was evident there was on show here. I just love the crazy missions that DnA put these characters on, and the diverse range of Marvel characters they use. It was great to see Black Panther show up and Daimon Hellstrom was particularly hilarious in this issue. Oh, and the idea of a Lady Stilt-Man is just genius, in the era of Lady Bullseye it’s a brilliant parody. Renato Arlem’s art was solid, and looks completely different from the last time I saw his work, where he used a Maleev-esque style. The man’s a chameleon! The last few pages of this issue set up the actual Villains For Hire storyline, which is certainly intriguing, Purple Man is always a slippery character.

That's Lady Stilt-Man in that pic? I was already sold seeing Stilt-Man there, but now I gotta check this out.

I liked this. :)

I can't wait to see Misty's Heroes for Hire confront the Purple Man's Villains for Hire.

Agreed, I thought she was great. :)
