Between Jim [Zub]’s action storytelling skills and inexhaustible energy and drive, Mark [Waid]’s experience, expertise and deep character knowledge, Alanna Smith’s problem-solving mojo, Tom Brevoort’s uber-editorial ear and whatever the hell I’ve been doing, we’ve formed a writing Voltron that’s stronger than any one of us alone. -- Al Ewing

I hate to be cynical because I love the art, BUT....

We basically have a rehash going on of "The Stolen Earth" 10th Doctor story mixed with a dose of Triumph and the Sentry (forgotten hero coming back).

Plus, can we NOT have Pietro be the the stand in jerk for once? Like he said, if he's so annoying, why bother sending him the alert?

SIgh. The art is pretty.

Gotta admit, adding a Triumph knock-off is a nice touch.
(Sneaky foreshadowing? Waid knocking on his previous work? Hmm...)

Adding a Triumph knock-off to " the JLA, but evil ", at that.

I have to say, that is some good lampshade hanging.

Having read #676, I think I know what's going on...


This is Contest of Champions IV and they're turning Earth into a new Battleworld to conduct it. The flashback to the first Contest is a clue.

if that is the case I will happily rescind my earlier comment. That would be great.

Ordinarily I'd be side-eyeing a Ms. Sentry storyline very hard, but with Al Ewing involved I'm optimistic. He's managed to avoid all the various pitfalls the Sentry fell victim to in incorporating Blue Marvel into the larger heroic community.

So Voyager has Gwenpool's comic-bending powers? Huh.

Who's the frozen guy Herc is holding?
Red Hulk looks dumb with a mustache.

I actually really like Red Hulk with a mustache. It's so hokey and fun.

I kinda wish it was Ross but it still works

Minimoose. Been here the WHOOOOOOOOLE time...

Wow I really butchered the reference.

meh, close enough for jazz.
I'm just glad someone else had the same thought

Well my initial thought was "didn't Waid just do this?" but then I saw all of Avengers history with "Not-Triumph" thrown in and I just thought about the third* best Christmas special with an evil robot Santa.

*Because nothing beats the first two Futurama X-Mas specials. Charlie Brown and the Justice League are great but they didn't have evil robot Santas.

The best part of that is the ACTUAL explanation for Minimoose: He WAS originally planned to appear in the show already and actually be Zim's other sidekick but the show was cancelled before his origin episode could be made.
However, Nick insisted the christmas episode to be finished and aired and since Minimoose's scenes had already been made, they had to quickly add a scene to handwave away Minimoose.

Are there a list of frozen heros/villians? Like maybe they're frozen if they have extra-normal senses to detect that she's NOT WHAT SHE APPEARS TO BE!

Well, that would explain why Squirrel Girl's among the frozen.

Take out the biggest threat first, and all.

The art is gorgeous and I love the colouring, even the lettering.

Sadly that's the only thing I ike about this. And I liked the Avengers X mini, even.

You would think they would have wanted to wait a while before pulling the trigger on this 16(!) part story seeing as they just finished a six part crossover with Champions. It kind of smacks of desperation, implying they believe nobody is willing to buy an Avengers comic without there being a gimmick behind it.

Quite a change from the Quesada era.

Let’s see... Valerie Vector is an awful lot like Valaria Victor.

If this isn’t Val from the FF, I will be very surprised.

It is a bit obvious though, so it may be a red herring.
