Also, while I appreciate the superhero road trip angle of the series the fact that it ties into an event doesn't really help. A lot of the humor is supposed to come from the heroes taking care of the baby, but it doesn't really pair well with the art. Being familiar with their work as well as their personalities I can understand, and reason away some issues but it's just not that good of a comic book. I don't wanna write it off completely yet, but I'm hesitant to come back for issue 3.
    As far as my personal complaints go:

    Iím really not a fan of how theyíre portraying Ares here. This is the man who remained on the Dark Avengers as a deterrent for Osborn that if he stepped out of line, he would end him and who proclaimed to make the most of his resurrection as to be able to have many tales of glory to tell his son when they are reunited again. To have him turn into a death seeker and a coward as to make such a deal is completely OOC, especially with the deal being with someone elseís child as the price.

    I just canít get into the art. Iíve had his art pop up in numerous books Iíve read in the past and every time, it just kills the mood with the cartoonish appearances.

    So there’s already a continuity issue between venom tie in and issue 3 of the event. Eddie’s new suit has no other its just him, for the time being his original suit is gone so there should have been nothing for Malekith to talk with.

    Unless they are spoiling he gets his real suit back before he joins the teams

    Yep. Just read it. It is spectacular.

    It does its job of introducing the Strikeforce books while never feeling irrelevant itself, the reveals are all on point, and the status quo changes, while not unexpected for those of us reading the omens and foreshadowings are shocking and satisfying.

    spoilers:
    Iron All-Father makes this worth the extra dollar. Also punished dark Freyja. Lot of good jokes here, too. Malekith is still hot. All is well.

    My first to reaction to that is
    spoilers:
    Stark returned the favor to Odin during Fear Itself when he got upgraded armor from the All-Father. Would have been nice to see them side by side.

    Yes, I am certain Stark being around doing this stuff is a nod to Fear Itself.

    For a little bit. Looking very sweaty and handsome. Hard worker! And he gives Odin something very cool. Odin is like God Howard so it's gonna be cool to see them interact in Avengers.

    I can’t believe we are getting an event that is this good. This book rules so much. There’s just so much cool stuff going on every single issue. The threats are terrifying and looming, and the heroic moments are top. Notch.

    well then, thank fck for Odin finally getting some good from aaron! won't spoil the moment but it was good and I'm really glad to see Odin and Freyja reconciling FINALLY... this doesn't make up for all the shit aaron's done to Odin, but it was a great few pages of them together. spoilers:
    Doubt they died in that explosion, probably gonna injure and sideline em both so they can be together and away for a while, das fine~
    end of spoilers

    also THANK FCK for Thor coming to lead the charge at the end of the issue, interrupting jane (great moment ) with him now using the spoilers:
    destroyer's arm
    end of spoilers, FINALLY as well.

    so glad Thor did that cause when i saw how characters, who 90% of em are better suited to leading troops and rallying ppl, gathered around to listen to jane, aaron's OABA of the thor mythos, give a speech like she's somehow able to in the face of characters like cap, carol, jennifer, sif, t'challa, luke and so on, was ready to gouge my eyes out again -_-

    already have to deal with the fcking constant and deliberate use of "all mother jane foster", don't forget the all-mother part... like we get it aaron, jane is the greatest thing to ever exist and is tooootally the logical choice for all-mother during a war, i mean who the fck is Sif, again, just some lowly side character standing right over there... meh to her eh :/

    spoilers:
    Pretty sure Odin and Freyja did die. However the choice of the Valknut rune on Odin’s chest is perhaps a clue that death will not stop him turning up again, perhaps in Valhalla. I also half expect this Dark Freyja to do something in Hel.

    I must be in a nitpicky mood. Is Captain Marvel going to be in Agents of Atlas or was the description for that panel calling for Ms Marvel?

    Also, I had to flip back and forth a few times to make sure I was not missing a page, the last page kind of lacked a signal that it was the last page.

    Otherwise, a ton of fun, big moments, not bogged down in too much chit chat. I could do without the special effects but the art is doing a lot of work carrying the event.
