It's true that New Ultimates gave more scenes to female team-members, but the book's attempts at girl-power seemed thoroughly hamstrung by cheese-cake visuals and character arcs that empowered them according to a cartoonishly low standard. Valkyrie's big thing is that she doesn't need Thor?
I liked how Hickman sets up the cliffhanger to this issue. That was a big surprise for me.
Just read this last night... INCREDIBLE! I wonder how much exactly that bomb at the end wiped out. All of Washington DC? Maryland? Great stuff. I just love Reed in this story. Even though he's the villain I find myself rooting for Reed. Like when I saw the City all tore up from the nukes, I actually felt bad and I was really impressed with his calm yet extremely violent retaliation. Two things: 1.) How quick can they rebuild? 2.) Reed didn't have a plan to stop an assault like this? He had to know that when desperate enough that the US would throw every nuke they had at him. Granted, it only took out a small percentage of the City, but I just can't see an advanced race of humans getting hit by something, that would be by their standards, so primitive.
Reed is definitely the US's most wanted, which makes me wonder what in the world could Kitty Pryde do that makes her the most wanted terrorist in the US?
