    The Whirlwind issue will be the issue I jump back in on. I'm ambivalent to those wastes of paper.

    I'm excited for this issue. But I'm disappointed that, after all the build-up, Hazmat lets Mettle harsh on Osborn's face. I was expecting her to have a battle of wits with Normie. I hope she gets an answer from him even if Mettle is all ready to ruin her plans.

    Awesome. And here I was worried that the work on progressing Hank Pym that Slott (often with Gage) would continue. Why, with this return to how things were back in the 60's, this will fit right in with the New DC!

    I'm very happy they're chucking Pym's Wasp ID! Welcome back, Giant Man!

    That seems unfair, considering Gage has shown a lot of respect to the character so far. At least wait and see... (Though I still think most fans who really like the character respond best to the Dr. Pym incarnation, which also works well with the concept of the scientist supreme. Heck, wasn't he even drawn as one of the Doctors in those early AWC issues where he was taking on that ID?)

    I still wish this would really mean Jan was back (though I guess there's no non-Bendis book for her to appear in, so maybe it's best she stays in limbo).

    Looking forward to Whirlwind and Ultragirl.

    And finally, I have trouble seeing how the generic Penance powers (seriously, have they even been defined as to what the hell they are? It's just random energy blasting.) are more powerful than Speedball's powers. The ability to control kinetic energy is pretty damn powerful. He can basically stop anyone in their tracks, and we saw what Darrion Grobe used his powers to do in Skolnick's run of New Warriors... God, I loathe that whole Penance concept. So dumb from the very start.

    cool, can't wait to see how this all turns out. Cage has already gotten me to connect to these new characters as opposed to secret warriors, which i do like, but it took almost the entire run of the series for me to remember the casts' names.

    So I guess it's Giant Man, not Ant Man, in the Avengers movie?

    Neither. Wasp has already been ruled out, and the plans for the Ant-Man movie make it seem like Pym won't be in the Avengers.

    Sort of glad I'm not buying this now. If Gage wanted to use the identity that worked best for Hank he'd be Yellowjacket. It was his best costume, allowed for multiple powers and if they wanted to ever give him a solo series it'd make for a better title than Giant-man.

    People don't use Giant-man for alternative versions because it's the best character, name or power set. They use it because it's easy, it's a guy who grows big. The costume and power set is boring and this is a giant step backwards for Hank.

    No Hank Pym won't be in the Avenger's because Edgar Wright plans on doing Ant-man based on Scott Lang stealing Hank Pym's Ant-man. So Hank would be considerably older than the Avenger's characters.

    I suppose it's different. Usually, they wind him back to Goliath (before bringing back Yellowjacket and his mental problems),

    But this basically shows that whatever Slott had in mind is being tossed out.

    what do you mean? Scott "stole" Hank's Ant-Man identity in the regular comic book continuity. he's not considerably older than the other Avengers characters.
