    Looking forward to All-New Ultimates, Flash Gordon and Doctor Mirage.

    This series has yet to woo me, but that "Hey **** you, Johnny Five!" line is solid gold.

    There still is no point to this book, but at least the art got a whole lot better.

    What the heck does this mean?! The 'point' of the book is that it's a fun comic book. What other kind of point could it possibly have?

    This book is great. A real original. It's like on another planet from Uncanny X-Force. I have a feel that Humphries is like Fraction: when he clicks with a concept, he kills it.

    The Avengers need a team just to deal with A.I.s? Why?

    And to do this important task Pym gets Vision (that bit I get) Victor, a random Doombot, and a android
    none of them have any idea about? This is all is random as hell (but that's Humphries, I guess).

    I gave this book six issue to win me over. That is pretty generous since the premise is full of fail, as far as I'm concerned.

    The only reason I even did that much was because the book features Pym and Vizh.

    This book has been fun so far. It has a lighter feel and seems less connected with the rest of the MU (which is a double edged sword honestly).

    I look forward to this issue.

    The artist change up is nice.

    I did enjoy the previous artist, but the faces were far too similar.

    This is a fun book. I like it, but Vic Vega really does have a point. It needs to find a better premise FAST, because that's the main flaw of this book, or they need this A.I stuff reflected outside of this book and show up in others. It feels disconnected from everything else. Books that are disconnected don't end up well, no matter how fun or the quality. Again, I really like this title, it's fun and good stuff. But it needs to find a better hook.

    I like Alexis. I want to know more about her.

    The bold would certainly help.

    Some books being distant from the main universe works, but this book is an example of it not working as much.

    I believe there is a crossover coming up with the Uncanny Avengers, which is understandable seeing as Humpries writes both, that could help.
