I won't give too many details, but I have to say that I really like how Jason Aaron's playing this -- cards on the table, not making it too complex of a mystery to enjoy, with maybe not a crappy reveal awaiting.

I really enjoyed today's issue, a lot -- Mike Deodato's art really fits this story, and while I don't know a damn thing about the bad guys who were shown this issue, I can Wiki them right up and get a clue, and it didn't lessen my enjoyment of the story at all.

Not sure where we're going for six more issues, but I'm totally on board.

yeah, i dug it. like you said, Deodato really brought it, and while i hate that Uatu was kakked, i think it's a decent premise for a big event (although a lot of the individual secrets that they've reportedly come up with are hella-fucking-dumb, so there's a good chance this spirals into crap before it's over), and it's been fun so far.

Am I missing something or didn't noh-varr kill Mr Midas pretty blatantly?

And why did he look like the Thing instead of the original Iron Man?

I would love to know how it is that the Avengers are working with Cyclops' X-Men now. Not following X-Men too close lately.

And did Spidey work things out with the Avengers' already about what Spock did?

You say that like it's a bad thing. We all have our D-list villain to love be usually Shocker or Dr. Demonicus.

According to the internet, he got zapped to another dimension, or some ridiculous thing.

I liked it, albeit not as much as the first one (which isn't really surprising). The story is moving along at a good pace, and the action and dialogue have been decent.

Personally, I like that better than just straight up killing a character. Shuffle him or her off the board for a prolonged time without having to do away with them. Wish more writers did that sort of thing these days.

Someone mentioned it only being Magik and Kitty, but Magik is wanted as well.

So, the Orb huh? Why exactly did he have to wear a hood?

"Born cursing in eight languages. Trained to kill everything that has ever tried to live. Coming for you now like a steamroller made of butcher knives and barbed wire." How corny can you get? And what does she do after that stellar ( :roll: ) introduction? She kills a small quinjet (that never tried to live) and gets her ass handed to her off panel (probably by Squirrel Girl).

And speaking of killing vehicles - why'd Nick kill his car? Wouldn't dropping it in the East River produce the same effect? What was Iceman's slide attached too? Can Thor float now?

And back to the Orb... I always had hoped he would hook up with Ruby Tuesday. Maybe he can, now that's he's changed the world!!!!!!

Whoa, whoa, whoa...now wait a minute here, sir!

You liked Forever Evil 7, which is fine. But you're having "suspension of belief" issues with Original Sin #2...but not with that other stuff?

Lex Luthor could call down Earth-3 magic lightning because he SOUNDS like Alexander Luthor? You were good with that? So Superman should bust out some super-ventriloquism every time he runs across Black Adam or any other Marvel Family character, whenever they're pissing him off, and that takes care of it?

Or maybe, since we're talking about off-panel stuff, we're all good with Sinestro and Black Adam MOVING THE MOON OUT OF ORBIT?!?!! We're just OK with that, then!

Again, we all have our nits to pick. But how in the world are you buying Forever Evil #7 and throwing daggers at Original Sin #2, based on suspension of belief issues and corny dialogue -- have you so soon forgotten, "But it's MY monster!!!!!"

:D :D :D

The Orb is one of my favourite villains thanks to Aaron's Ghost Rider and Spider-Man/Wolverine, so I fucking love how he's using him here and making him into a big deal.
