West Coast Avengers #50 - the return of the Human Torch! This was cool.

Flash Forward #4 - Moving the story along and not terrible.  Or maybe my expectations are so low that Iím not hating it?

Most likely.  I like to keep up with the Flash world as much as I can.

ADDED -
Marvel Team-Up  #4


*****************************

Marvel Team-Up #4 - Man, how in the hell did I like the look of Morbius when I was a kid? His costume just makes no sense at all  Cheesy And these X-Men? Woooo Jean was waaay too sexy during this time. I guess to make up for that early outfit.  Smiley




Amazing Spider-Man #112 - A lot of nothing really, but Spidey soon finds a "bad guy" working with some kind of harness wrapped around him and you know what that means, the og harness guy is here at the end ... Doc Oc!




Captain America #153 - So Nick Fury admits to being too damn jealous of Cap, finally realizing that Cap doesn't want to "salute" his girl and they all agree to terms before things get too out of hand ... only for Falcon to later see his girl on a balcony with someone and turn around get all jealous himself. Maybe Conway was going through a cheating girlfriend phase?  Grin




Avengers #103 - Yeah, I just got too tired to care about this issue. Avengers face off against a sentinel and a mutant that sees the future




Daredevil #91 - Okay, seems I was mistaken on the first appearance of Mr Fear. Not sure how I got that last issue but they discuss the first Dr. Fear was back in DD 49 (I think), so ... ooops. Funny side note, Dude tells DD that Black Widow bolted, left San Fran, the issue prior to the title being named DD and Black Widow?  Grin




Thor #13 - Yeah, I'm not saying anything about this one. Hee Hee. Couple great things and a sweet ass last page prove that I am not yet ready to add this to MU only.
 Grin Grin

EDIT - So I went to add some more '72 Marvel to my Downloads and noticed I screwed up with the Cap writer. Gerry Conway is writing almost everything I am reading right now, but forgot Englehart was doing the writing on Captain America. Sorry Gerry, I am sure you and the Mrs were fine
 Cheesy

West Coast Avengers #51 & 52 - the secret revealed about Wanda and Visions kids. I thought this was the end of the Wanda breakdown storyline but it has a few more issues to go.  Love John Byrnes work here. So many plot threads running simultaneously.

West Coast Avengers #53 - little bit of a detour with the Acts of Vengeance crossover.  Still a decent read.

Flash Forward #5 & 6 - glad thatís over but it wasnít as bad as I thought.  Still not great and looking forward to see how this gets undone.

Barbalien Red Planet #4 - finally got better towards the end of the issue.  Not enough to salvage the series but bodes well for the finale next issue.

Black Hammer: Visions #1 - Not a bad issue.  I think I enjoyed it more than Perry. Which is ok. Golden Gail is one of my favorite characters so that could have something to do with it.

Snow Angels #1 & 2 - Nice! I like this Jeff Lemire series already.  Whole new world in an arctic trench complete with a rich unknown history & mystery. Thumbs up!

Yea! I did it! I finally finished a list on time!  Grin

Something is Killing the Children #14 - This is a great story BUT it is dragging out a little too long.  Fortunately we seem to be very close to the end and the upcoming battle should be be good.

Stillwater #5-6 - And things go literally up in smoke!  The big confrontation is finally here and definitely did not go the way I was expecting.

My problem was one of confusion ... mainly (although, yeah, I wasn't blown away), but I mean,
how did all this happen with Gail while in this "town" when I thought the "town" was shown only to be a fictional world created for when the heroes were in a coma after their fight with Anti-God? Ya know, when they were really on that ship and in stasis? Am I misremembering?
Which, yeah, I am sure I probably am

No your remembering correctly.  I just took it like this...
I figured this all took place in the stasis.  I think the experiences there were real to the characters and maybe the stasis had to create backgrounds for the unreal people living there?  Honestly, Iím trying not to think about it too hard.  Grin
