Oh how I yearn for the books that applied intelligence to characters in the intelligence community. Ah well...

Yeah, I could definitely do without Daisy's whole "WHY DON'T YOU, MY SUPERIOR OFFICER WITH 7 DECADES OF COMBAT AND SPY EXPERIENCE, TELL ME, SOME CHICK WHOSE NAME YOU PROBABLY JUST DREW OUT OF A HAT, WHAT IS GOING ON?!?!"

The previous page had Fury saying that if she wanted to ask him something, then to just ask it.

Did he say she would get an answer?

No, but it's not like she's just asking him out of the blue.

Heh, just like Jesus.

"Ask, and ye shall recieve!"

"Okay. If your Dad's so great and all, why does he keep wiping out large masses of people who fall under specific criteria?"

"Shutupshutupshutup! I don't have to answer your questions! I'm going and getting crucified!"

"Great. Now I feel confused AND guilty."

Actually, that's one of the few things that make sense in this book.

Daisy's training means she's only above average in the game she's in. She's facing foes with superior training, firepower and experience. Nick Fury is the only buffer between her and a slow and painful death. And he's being a complete douche.

Nothing else about this series makes sense, though. How Hydra has been running Shield for decades, why Fury is relying on a bunch of wet behind the ears kids or how these kids are supposed to be from off the grid sources. Fury found them by asking social services!

IMO, there's no evidence that the writer has thought his plots through. And IMO, spy stories may not need airtight plots, they need to at least stand up to inspection. And Secret Warriors don't.

But Daisy is a former Mary Sue! In Secret War she was all threatening all the heroes and shit!

She's lost the protection that Bendis provided, that's why she's scared!
