Four scans from Mighty Avengers #32, which I have to say was my favourite issue of the series so far.

In the past I've found the series kind of middling, but this issue just clicked.

First, a scan of the team hanging out:

Cassie loses this contest, to the relief of straight women and gay men everywhere.

In the main plot, Norman is annoyed at how the Mighty Avengers keep getting favourable media coverage, at the same time as his regime is coming under increasing press scrutiny.  When he gets word that the Absorbing Man has gotten loose in the Project Pegasus facility, he takes his team there to generate some good media.  However, it was Loki who released the Absorbing Man, just as he created the MA to undermine Osborn, and now Loki (back in his Wanda guise) appears to the team and tells them about the emergency.  Despite not trusting her, they decide they'd better do something about the threat anyway.

The two teams stand around making a few more jabs at each other, while the Absorbing Man finds the remnants of the Cosmic Cube inside the facility (this being a Dan Slott comic, we're told it's the one that shattered way back in Captain America #14, the end of the "Winter Soldier" arc; I like this for the additon reason that it at last can stop people from speculating that that Cube is still out there).  Anyway, Creel is now uber-powerful ("Oh, you are royally @#$% now!").

One of the things I really liked about this issue was that Pym has finally stopped angsting so much and is just acting like a competent hero; I think Slott might have spent a bit too much time building up to that, but whatever.  Also, the inking/colouring of Khoi Pham's art has gotten much, much better.

It is a great line. But I just can't help but think about the Dark Reign arc in Incredible Hercules where he fought his dead mortal half and yelled "Why do you persist in talking old-timey Shakespeare talk?! We're from GREECE! From two thousand years BEFORE Shakespeare!"

I like to think that Herc does it now and then for the lulz. The only time he speaks like that is for effect and to mess with people.

But then he could not say "Zounds".

I trust you understand what is really important here.

For the same reason Herc does anything.

Because the ladies love a smooth talking man.
