Black Bolt: Damn, how did those two end up with a better marriage than any hero I know? And that includes me!

I somehow enjoyed how utterly useless Black Bolt is in this issue :D And the funeral was... funny. I guess it was not meant to be funny but, well, I can't help myself.
Also I'm pretty sure Inhumans never had cemeteries as they have had limited space in Attilan, and Medusa once mentioned the ceremony of throwing the dead to the birds of prey in Himalayas. Then, for it was a funeral, Medusa threw the coffin to Hudson river to the fish of prey.

I'm even more sure that Maximus have told about a thousand jokes a week to Black Bolt, he just didn't like them - but hey, that doesn't make them not-jokes!

Telling jokes to Black Bolt is a bit suicidal.

Carl was a boxer? Or are those gloves and trophy Mary's?

I assume it's how he got the nickname "Crusher" Creel... it was his boxing name.

It's nice to see such raw emotion from professional criminals who mostly weren't in it for curelty, or sadistic glee in slaughter, but the money, and the occasional big scam.

Given how many times Crusher has apparently been destroyed/atomised (including the time he absorbed the properties of Quasar's quantum bands) I suspect he's not gone forever.

Oh, yeah; it will take a few months, but he'll re-form.

Yeah, he's come back enough times from just as bad that it's hard to think this will stick. I just hope it's... I dunno, a respectfully long absence to warrant this level of storytelling.

I have a lot of respect for the working-class level of supervillains like Crusher, Constrictor, Shocker, the Wrecking Crew... the ones who just want to make a big score now and again and who aren't as caught up in world domination or revenge. When done right, they're a lot of fun.

The Absorbing Man is an admitted super-villain, but many stories make it clear he isn't a monster like Sabretooth and Carnage. It's a mix of the money and the thrill of mixing it up with superheroes. Murdering random innocent people for fun isn't a factor.

Titania has an interesting "I was a weak and puny girl, then Dr. Doom gave me superpowers and it was AWESOME!" background. And she fell for Carl Creel because he was the toughest guy out of all of the villains during Secret Wars. If they ever put her in the MCU, she has a LOT of story potential.

Jack Murdock's last fight being against Carl "Crusher" Creel was first done by Jeph Loeb in "DAREDEVIL: YELLOW." For whatever reason, other creators went with it. Of coure, that story also had Foggy Nelson in the audience with Matt Murdock during the fight.

I know it's been commented on before, but I'm really enjoying how Mary/Titania has been drawn in this series.
