    Thor is an awesome book

    I loved Thor making peace with his father, and also Loki is an evil bitch (though I totally thought Jane Foster would be the one doing what Loki was doing, but I suppose that would have been an out of character move).

    Hulk vs. Herc was awesome as well, especially the un-colored preview of Incredible Herc #117 included in it.

    When he dies, I hope they write "Worst Affirmative Action Hire, EVER" on his grave. His corpse should be trolled.

    Tales of the TMNT was pretty good this week. It had a neat little Lovecraftian style story that I thought was pretty cool.

    Also, USM was great as usual.

    that reveal was totally awesome. this whole time i've been like
    where's loki? everyone else was doing some variation of their regular thing, and it turns out his is tormenting dying old ladies. that's great. but really, why isn't thor like 'where the fuck is loki, i should track down that asshole, just sos i knows where he is'

    I was really getting a little tired of the 'thor travels to a real-world global hotspot' stuff. i don't think the idea of 'big white god' played very well against the new orleans and africa backdrops, in a way. now that they're back into the kind of more mythological stuff, i'm digging it a lot again.

    Well there are two different colours, blue and red. So I am going to guess one means who he thinks is a skrull and one means who he is sure isn't a skrull?
    I am going to say all those circles are all skrulls. The red one means that it's definatley an enemy, and the blue means that it's sill undecided/not a threat.

    I gotta disagree with you, cause in NA
    Daredevil turns out to be a Skrull when he attacks Echo. I think Blue is definately Skrull, Red is cannot confirm either way, or isn't a skrull.

    But that wasn't the real one. It was a skrull pretending to be him short term in order to take her.

    Didn't know that. I only read that issue of NA last week and none of the other tie ins.

    edit: I was also thinking about this cover for MA #17:

    The red circles HURT to look at.

    Terribly so. I keep hoping the blue ones turn out to be the actual skrulls instead.

    I'm betting that blue circle is people in the clear/not skrulls and red circle is suspected skrulls. The reason I say this is because spiderman is circled in blue and there is no way they are making him a skrull after what they just did with Brand New Day.

    The red circles have to be definite Skrulls

    I mean, they had to put Hulkling in there for a reason.

    Author's saving throw, maybe? Of course, if Mephisto didn't know, well that's just bullshit, and if he did know, what's his game?

    Damn, now I'm paranoid.

    Fuck with the REAL Peter?
    "By the way, your marriage was erased."
    "Oh goddammit."

    Alternatively: Maybe Spider-skrull is Deep Cover? And Mephisto's deal fucked with his mind to the point he's gone from "sleeper agent" to "Ben Reilly 2.0"?


    Think about it.
    How much would you all love it if Secret Invasion ended with Ben Reilly coming back in some form.



    Moment of the Week:
    Thor
    "He will NOT die today!"
    Uncanny X-Men.
    "I get it, Scott. You wish you'd been a dirty hippy."
    Mighty Avengers.

    My moment was Dark Times 11. When the Bomo goes completly psychotic and murders everything. Also KOTOR when the talisman attacks Celeste.

    If Mephisto didn't know, could it have been because of the Skrull gods?

    He's got Lockjaw circled, though. Maybe the blue circle is for 'Must team up and solve mysteries on a roadtrip in an old-fashioned VW van with'. They're like a family. Stature's the tough and feisty youngest sister, Spidey's the middle child, everybody's favourite lovable scamp with the quips and thwips, Daredevil's the groovy older brother, Lockjaw's the comedy pet and Nick's the crotchety old dad behind the wheel.

    I'd buy it.
