    That would make sense, as he's a Bendis creation.

    Sad thing is that Miles used to be awesome....then Bendis had to make him overpowered.

    Aren't #8 and The Oath out at the same time? Dec 28?

    And #7's main cover is awful - the artist got Carol's costume design wrong. The gold stripe is supposed to meet in the middle of the Hala star, not underneath it.

    Respect the power set? Tell me I'm not the only one who thinks this line is awkward.
    seems like Carol really don't want to use the teleporter, she want to convince Miles

    thought it was 8. But I've been wrong before.

    Miles' power set in the hands of Bendis is deus ex machina levels. Even Marvel feels it.

    I don't even mean the situation, I already assume all Bendis creations are going to look the best in everything given everything with Riri so far. I just mean...that sentence reads really weird in dialogue.

    You're not. The line makes it sound like Carol thinks she's LARPing.

    And couldn't they just use a telepath to shut down Miles, if she's worried a teleporter would set him off?

    Right?
    I'm sure Jean is all woke up from being Vision blasted by now.
    And she's got as many scruples about entering minds as she has f^cks to give.

    The story maybe trash, but the art in this series is great, proabably the only reason I'll be picking up the hardcover.

    My personal theory was that he unconsciously channeled the raw power of the metaphysical/cosmic Web of Life and Destiny through that Venom Strike and that was what really defeated Blackheart. If we're gonna go into Deus Ex Machina territory, we might as well go big and expand our horizons beyond Brian Bendis.
    The spider is always on the hunt.

    You're correct. It is 8 issues and then the one shot The Oath to bookend it.

    Speaking of overpowered, doesnt the Oz formula also make him basically immortal? (I feel like Ultimate Norman Osborn said something to that affect)

    Anyway, this has all got too much for me. I'll continue to get this series for the sake of completion but after that I'm done with anything with Bendis' name on it for the forseeable future/probably forever.

    I don't respect his power set.

    Why is the kid there? That's all I want to know. He knows the vision, so stay right away from there. Does he have a death wish?
