Review is up!
And for those of you wondering, the Secretary of Energy is 15th in line if the President dies. Among the thousands in DC, we can confirm the deaths of:
Speaker of the House
President pro tempore of the Senate
Secretary of State
of the Treasury
of the Interior
of Health and Human Services
of Housing and Urban Development
So where is the Ultimate X-Men thread. I quite liked the issue today.
Bring back X-23's series petition
Bring back X-23's series facebook page
Wonder if the cover to issue 12 might actually be accurate after all :) Maybe its even Modi, which would be interesting to have essentially both versions of Thor active.
The issue was great. And it was really well paced too.
A lot of Posters on here are worried that Thor might die. Relax! Sam Humphries confirmed yesterday that his run will feature Cap, Tony, Thor, Fury, Monica and Clint as his core team members, similarly to The Avengers movie. I expect Captain Britain will be on the team too.
I liked this issue, but the Agent Flumm stuff was kinda weird. I am looking forward to seeing Fury and him square off though. I agree completely with Plawsky about the art, there are flashes of awesomness and streaks of awkwardness.
Seeing Sue again wasn't horrible since she didn't really take on her whiny persona until learning about Reed, but WTF is with the FF costume? I'm sad that Hickman is leaving, but it looks like Humphries will be a good replacement.
1) Find a bad guy
2) Be Wolverine
Bring Back Ultimate Wolverine...again!
I liked almost everything except Sue. Why would she still be wearing the FF uniform.
I can't wait to see what The City is now capable of doin.
Plus Modi's arm is a lot bigger then when he went in.
"My name is Blink. Who do you THINK is faster?"
I feel like I could kick a house down right now. Seeing Modi's arm burst out of the world tree made me shout like a crazy person. This is so awesome. Just seeing finally seeing Sue again is so damn cool. I'll agree with some of you about the random people getting blown up but the rest of the issue was SO DAMN GOOD. We even got to see Rhodes again. Oh my god, guys. This is so awesome.
Comics are more better.
And actually, I'm going to retract my previous statement. Viewed piecemeal, the DC scenes feel kinda like a waste of space, but I think that you've really gotta lump them up with the War Machine and Secretary Howard scene just prior. After that it's more like, "holy crap! The SECRETARY OF ENERGY is being sworn in!? What the hell happened!?!?" And then all you see is the crater that used to be Washington DC. It works really well for what it's trying to accomplish, and I have no doubt that the political instability caused by Reed will continue to be addressed by Hickman as we see SHIELD attempt to mount a response. In retrospect, my desire to see that right away was probably putting the story wagon in front of the horse so to speak .
I still need something extraordinary to happen with Flumm by the time Hickman wraps up though, especially if we're meant to believe this is a shared universe and Flumm's also dealing with the Sentinel situation. I mean really, something more than a political takeover better be going on here, because otherwise his behavior thus far has been grossly irresponsible -_-'.
Also, I'm digging Ross' use of "widescreen" panels, even if some of his characters were a little wonky throughout :).

Marriage Era Spidey bashers are shameful opportunists (Like you REALLY didn't enjoy a single Spidey comic in 20 years)
Conversely, BND haters REALLY need to get over their continuity elitism already
