    Did anyone get the SI Runaways Tie In? Does it take place in the past too?

    no, SI Runaways/Young Avengers takes place during SI

    I think its safe to assume that they get back to the present at the end of the newest issue of Runaways

    It's about time! It seems like they've been in the past for a year.

    Pretty much all of New and Mighty Avengers and getting some solid answers on when certain people were replaced by Skrulls. I got so many Marvel books today and can barely remember all the cool stuff but my God Thunderbolts was awesome.

    So, Spider-Woman was present for Disassembled. Why didn't anyone question her asking what happened to Scarlet Witch when she asked about it in NA this week? She's in the back left of this image. So was Spider-Man for that matter. The recent Mighty Avengers issue that showed the Secret War also had her present for that when she wasn't even there. These are all written by Bendis and he can't keep simple things straight.

    okay just because she's in that shot doesn't mean she automatically knows what caused all that shit to happen, for one

    and on the second point, I'm not entirely sure what you're talking about

    This week's New Avengers had
    all the skrulls scrambling around, trying to take out key members of super-organizations. Part of that involved milking Tony Stark about what the hell happened to Wanda Maximoff. Supposedly, she should already know.

    I think this is the part you're confused about, correct?

    I'm kind of fuzzy on Disassembled, but I thought the group that actually knew who was responsible was considerably smaller than the whole Avengers team, so, she might not know

    what I'm more fuzzy is the bit where she's supposedly in Secret War flashbacks because I don't remember that happening

    Yeah I'm pretty sure everyone that was there had no idea what was actually going on.

    and plus I doubt Bendis specifically wrote "Oh and Finch, put Spider-Woman in the corner." he probably didn't know about it.

    Bendis works full scripts, doesn't he? And even if he didn't, and they worked it Marvel style, he would have seen the pencils beforehand.

    This isn't the first time Bendis has screwed up continuity - why bust his balls about it now? It's not his strong suit, it'll never be his strong suit, so fuck it, y'know?

    If what I remember is right(and it may not be).

    That shit happens with the whole fake Kree invasion, Hawkeye dies and everyone flips out.

    Then a smaller squad of Avengers actually figures out what the fuck happened.

    Guys, did you see Fraction and Brubaker's cameo in Iron Fist? It's when Luke and Danny are at Times Square. Brubaker's wearing his hat and he's got a Criminal shirt on, and Fraction's got on a Casanova shirt. I just thought that was cool. :^:

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

    I just spent half an hour finding those issues and looking.

    After the battle, in front of the entire crowd of superheroes, Dr. Strange plays amateur detective and figures it all out. He explains, in very clear terms, just what happened. All around them, superheroes pay attention and comment on it. Spider-man is being silly while they explain how Wanda killed their friends.

    Bendis wrote Spider-man's dialogue.

    In the New Avenger issue this week, he had no idea what happened at disassembled while he was clearly present at the event.

    But who knows, what with all the brainwashing and magic and whatever they go through each day.

    I was. She was there too. And Spider-man. And she had the same memory problem in NA this week as Spider-Man.

    [EDIT] Also, I would say that there is some truth to KVW's accusations of Bendis' ability to keep his story straight.

    So Ms Marvel this week was pretty awesome. Not only was it a good fight but it seems that Carol is finally starting to break out from the whiny "poor me, why can't I be popular" thing that has been plaguing her for most of the series.

    After reading Ultimates 3 this week I've come to the conclusion that
    Ultimate Black Panther is Nick Fury

    Problem with that is as far as we know, Nick's still in the Supreme Power-verse. Solicits for the new series even mention him. True, the original Fury had a thing about using robotic duplicates so one could be either running around as BP or be the one in the SP-Verse.

    Still, I think I read somewhere that there was a shot in #4 showing that the Black Panther's hand was exposed as white underneath the costume.

    Final Crisis list:
    While lacking in giant plot twists, except for the one at the end that was telegraphed, I enjoyed:
    -Sonny Sumo ripping a bitch's heart out and putting it in a shotglass.
    -Sundoller Coffee. It's nice that the details of the DC world they built in 52 is still reappearing.
    -Of course, "Run!"

    yes, this

    Dr. Strange shows up and realizes whats happaned and then like the actual core Avengers confront Wanda

    they didnt drag all 500 of those people with them

    and since she was thier friend it makes perfect sense that they would want to keep it private, as well as her current location

    Yes, but every single person there, meaning everyone who was ever an Avenger, heard Strange's explanation and knew exactly what happened.

    I thought this bit in Ultimates #4 was funny:
    Robot Iron Man - I could use a drink. Any vodka down here?

    Robot Yellowjacket - Amazing. The personality imprints are near perfect.


    I mean, I guess it is Ultimate Tony Stark, but c'mon. All there is to Iron Man is 'funny drunk?'

    ...yeah, I guess so.

    Yeah, too bad the Abomination didn't think of that. Then again, R-Hulk beat him down enough to probably prevent him doing such an act. Hopefully that moment will at least shut up the 'Where's The Green Scar?' complainers for a bit.

    On another note, it looks like the suspect list is back down to Ross and Samson thanks to Clay's death. Right now the big clues of the issue are Samson's torn and gamma-irritated coat and R-Hulk's use of the word 'milksop' when it comes to Bruce Banner.

    Hey, fuck you, but yeah you're right, that will shut us up.
    Also Clay hasn't been a suspect since Issue 2 when he and Red Hulk were in a panel together.
