Children's Crusade #4: THE BIG ONE

Assuming you are as big a fan as I am, you also screamed something both guttural and squeaky from the deep recesses of your throat and then promptly began sobbing and crying for joy while making sounds reminiscent of the Muppets' Beaker.

Or maybe it's just me.

The last page of Avengers: The Children's Crusade #4. HUGE HUGE HUGE SPOILERS. I'M WARNING YOU NOW, IT'S REALLY BIG.

But first, something from Avengers #5, posted a few months ago. Look at the entry after "Return of the King"

Ironlad (re)turns.

I am not getting my hopes up too much for now, because of the way it was written, but let us remove all doubts for a moment and simply bask in the joy of getting our favorite teen team leader back.

Heinberg, if you fake out now, I will rip something painful.

WTF KIND OF ENDING IS THIS? It makes me happy, and yet also enraged.

And the rest of the issue seemed a bit short. My sad face is imminent.

I think she's been the stated team leader at least a few times...

For real?

Clearly without the idea that she's just subbing for Eli? Because that's the general feeling around the YA

For real? No, I don't get that at all. Apart from Eli who seems to have a problem with them throwing their chips in with Mags (and I can sympathise with his unease, because if Mags decided to do a double cross, they might not be able to stop him), everyone else has been pretty accepting about it and her ideas so far.

In fact, it hasn't even been discussed much save the second issue, when Eli is all, "I mightn't be the leader of the team but, this is so a bad idea." and Kate is like, "Well, either fall in line or GTFO." and Eli is all, "Goddamn it... " and falls into line by saving Magneto from a wooden spike.

So again, really? (I love you like a play cousin, but no, boo).

But in the other comics, Eli isn't even there. Like, for the I am an Avenger no 1. Everyone went to the Avenger's mansion and got the carpet rolled out except him because he was MIA. In Dark Reign he was the leader, yeah, as well as Civil War but that was over a year ago. Since then when the YA have been in the other comics, it's been everyone else except for Eli.

[personal profile] jazzypom brought up the quote I was thinking of, yeah.
