I suppose that cover lets you know just what you're in for.
Two butt-poses and a lump of mashed potatoes shaped in the form of a human.

... I'd ask why the SHIELD goons burst into Hank's house with guns, but pretty sure any answer will inevitably be "they're SHIELD".

(Also, it might be because the artwork, but it does look more like Maria's taking a nap than being concussed.
"Oh, Ultron again? You know what, I'm just gonna lie down now. You don't really need me, right?")

It's pretty impressive that when Earth's Mightiest Heroes adapted this storyline just how much they changed.
(Well, did they change it, or mash it up with several other Ultron stories? They did include several beats from this one. Does that make it an adaptation?)

If you're going to cockblock a superhero, might as well go in heavily armed just in case?

Man gets to look strong and powerful, women get ass-shots. It's certainly not a case of false advertising.

Well, except the suggestion that Ultron will be a scary evil robot and not a naked woman.

Ew.
Skrull Sex.

Skrull sex with a cat person.

Someone, somewhere, for some reason, has probably written about it.
Somewhere... in the dark places where mortals fear to tread...

So do you want the links or not? I can't tell. :)

... no.
(Anyway, all that stuff about there being any kind of fic about anything remotely related to sex on the internet is complete guff.)

Yep, that's a Frank Cho cover, all right.

It's so bad it's good.

I don't mind the butt shots so much compared to Tigra literally being a sex kitten.

I suppose she's the one character who could reasonably contort herself into the sorts of positions Frank Cho likes to feature.

Apparently Wasp thinks Natasha's ass is "not bad".

The way that bootycall ends is just so very very Hank Pym.

The (fake) Hank and Greer scene was awful.

I miss Avengers Academy.

Avengers Academy did reference her relationship with Skrull Hank though, it's how she got her kid.

Real Hank even mentions his regrets about Skrull Hank, shortly before Tigra jumps his bones. Something along the lines of "Fake Me was better at being Me than I was."

I mean I miss Hank's and Greer's much better characterizations in AA. The Initiative reads like poorly written fan-fic.

Weren't they both written by the same guy though? I know Gage was writing this Initiative before he went to do Avengers Academy.

Initiative was Gage and Slott, then it became just Gage.

Thanks!

I only remembered that Gage was on the book.

It's not like Tigra doesn't often end up looking like an orange lady with stripes instead of like a lady with fur, but something about it here is especially noticeable to me.

There's a 'Nat-ass-ha' joke to be made somewhere in there. It's quite subtle so it might take me a few to pinpoint the exact location...
