Eternals: Iron Man's a dick.
X-Men: that whole secondary story in space is confusing and annoying. esp since this book comes out once every 2 months - by the time the next issue comes out, i don't remember what the hell happened on 1.5 pages of the previous issue.
new avengers: i have a hard time believing jessica drew is just that good at hiding herself from everyone. and why isn't she pissed at cap for pretty much abandoning her? also, Iron Man's a big dick.
heroes for hire: boobies and butts. half japanese people can have "reddish" hair that's mostly dark, but she shouldn't have red hair unless her japanese half is less than half. there are actual panels in this issue. i didn't think comic book artists and writers remembered how to do that. Misty agreed way too easily considering the objections she and Colleen raised. it was reminiscent of the Daredevil movie where Murdock asks the defendant if he's sure he's not guilty.
Misty: "Do you promise you'll do the right thing?"
Iron Man and Mr. Fantastic are both dicks.
Since you got my comments on all the other books, I'll mention I also enjoyed Heroes For Hire. The fake-out endings weren't great, but I wasn't as annoyed by Orka as you. I enjoyed the villain's reaction to Tarantula and the writing on the villains in general. But, yeah, boobs and butts.
