Avengers vs. Pet Avengers #4, it warms the cockles of your heart. And it looks like this is the last Pet Avengers book in a while....

Fin Fang Foom and the dragons eat the dragon eggs but spit them out in space for the babies to hatch, and Lockjaw teleports everyone away from the volcano blowing up. Thor apologizes for the Avengers not being more helpful and always rushing to conclusions, then at the new Pet Avengers doghouse Mansion (right behind the real mansion Bendis better reference this!) Lockheed apologizes for helping the dragons, saying he only wanted to help them because he was so alone:

And Foom is on an island with the baby dragons all happy, awwwwww.

Superman/Batman #80 is a much better interpretation of Roberson writing a Superman story, and is half time travel junkets with the villain Epoch, the other half the One Million versions of the characters:

the idea involves the 5th dimension piggybacking on top of the 80's versions of Superman Batman & Robin using Hawking Radiation

    And yet they are also amongst the most awesome words in any comic book.

    It had to be deliberate that Superman takes three panels to notice the loop while Batman figures it out the moment he gains access to Superman's senses.

    It's nice to see the One Million versions of the characters being used. I really love them.

    Has Pet Avengers referenced Kitty Pryde being back, yet? I know it's only kind of in continuity, but I seem to remember something in the early issues where Lockheed was depressed over Kitty's death. Or maybe I'm conflating Pet Avengers with his appearance in SWORD.

    It was mentioned in the first mini series, and I think it's Throg who convinces him to be on the team. Maybe Gillen will reference Pet Avengers when he takes over Uncanny, because Kitty is on the cover to the .1 issue in April.

    The way I see it, Lockheed went depressed drunk and stuff in SWORD, then the Pet Avengers helped straighten him up and fly right, and now that the Pet minis are done for he can go back to Uncanny and be the team pet (Hairball could easily be Mockingbird's pet after this issue).

    I got to ask, what's up with Throg, is it an actual frog with the power of Thor or semi power of him or did he get turned into an actual frog again.

    Throg is Walt Simonson turned into a frog, then using a sliver of Mjolnir to be a Thor-frog. So it's a person turned into a frog who likes being a frog, similar to Gorilla Man.

    That.. that's a weird story.

    In a nutshell, Throg was a guy, who became a frog, who found a splinter of Thor's walking stick/hammer, and when he struck it against the ground, he became Throg.

    I'm not sure why he had to be a guy before he became a frog, but hey, comics!

    edit: Dammit, Tex.

    To contribute, X-Factor was pretty good today. It was a Darwin-centric issue, and a nice little breather after the big Vegas/Thor/Hela plot. It also addressed the ramifications of immortality, which is always one of my favorite things to think about in comics.

    The character's name was Simon Walterson, that's all. It's kind of funny when it was Simonson who created that issue anyway.

    Legacy #244 had Harvey Tolibao art, and I like his style. He also knows how to draw tentacle enemies without them being tentacle-rape enemies:

    giant squid from the Emplate dimension was still on the island hiding and kidnapping mutants, Rogue and Madison go to investigate:

    and then the world goes black leading into Age of X, has something connecting it to the Death persona of Gambit it seems.

    Why can't DC just get rid of their main universe and set everything in DC One Million? I'm sure 10 other people besides me would keep reading it.

    Amazing Spider-Man was fantastic this week. No specific awesome moment, just a great fun Spidey story. And with a wonderful Power Man/Spider-Man team-up backup.

    I agree that the 1,000,000 characters are awesome, but I think it really speaks to a greater void in the DC line up that the JLA (the big 7) need to return to the front and center and battle Maggedon or whatever else the hell Morrison threw at them when JLA was the best thing ever.

    Guys Wolverine and Jubilee was good

    Kathyren Immonen wrote a good comic

    The excellent art probably helped a lot.

    Also seconding the ASM issue. A little too much Carly set-up but Jameson ordering Spider-Man to help save the rocket was great and
    Spider-Man VS Scorpion on the side of a rocket heading through the atmosphere
    is going to make an amazing set piece for next time

    Nothing will top Stinky.

    Also yes! It was good I swear! The dialogue was readable and sensical and nothing was really out of place except for Rockslide being slightly less of a jerk than usual and an out of blue reference to Bleach for Jubilee's new super speed ability.

    Quicksilver probably. I don't know if he's where he was in his own series speed wise since M-Day, but you can't have an old-young british lady beat an Avenger.

    Quicksilver has been shown as generically superfast these days

    Which I like. It's not as if the Flash guys are always going at their top speed they just go at "super-speed"

    Same with Quicksilver. None of this speed of sound bollocks, just good old "how fast?" "very fast."
