Good job zeroing in on Moonstone and the Fixer's spines, Matt and Elektra.

What the hell are Moonstone and Fixer even doing here, anyway?
You'd think they'd have much better things to do. Last I saw, they were still with the Thunderbolts until Secret Civil Empire War.

And why does everyone always use Titania as a background villain? She's like the Wrecking Crew: overexposed with a losing streak that has thoroughly undermined any value she ever had... Black Bolt, at least, treated her with respect and used her well for the story.

Apparently the fallout from Super Double Secret Empire went poorly for the Thunderbolts because Moonstone seems to have lost most of her powers and Fixer looks like he's a homeless person.

Is it really THAT easy to take out Moonstone? Isn't she on the same level as Carol Danvers?

From: [personal profile] long_silence
I guess Moonstone forgot she can go intangible. And I'm not entirely sure she was ever actually as strong as Carol, she just dresses like her sometimes.

I'm more concerned by how easily Titania got taken down by Spider-Woman and four non-powered street brawlers. Titania fights She-Hulk, that group shouldn't really be able to take down Mary without some injury. White Tiger stood a chance when she was powered by the Tiger God but she broke that connection.

Does Titania still have a spider-phobia or still grieving for Crusher's death?

Moonstone has gone rounds with the Hulk. She's easily in Carol's weight class.

Bendis: Damn, I'm leaving Marvel. I must write 5000 Hood stories nobody asked for before I leave!!

*months later*

"Introducing the latesting villain in DC comics... the Hoodie!"

And the second is Bendis is out the door at marvel:

Tigra: Wow, I can't believe that The Hood got dropped down into a black Hole Generator that utterly destroyed his body and soul down to the molecules.

Hank: I know, and this scan I did before he fell in confirms that it was not a clone, Life Model Decoy, robot, or anything else, and it was definitely really him.

CB Cebuksli: It sure was Dr. Pym.

Hank and Tigra: Wow, Marvel Editor and Chief CB Cebulski!

CB: Yep, and I'm here to confirm that Hood is so completely dead that I have enacted an executive order that no one can ever use him in a comic ever again. Nor can they use any character whose meant to be an expie, equivalent, or other alternate version of him.

Hank and Tigra: Wow!

And nothing of value was lost.

To be fair, the hood has a lot of potential as a great character. But they need to let him sit for awhile, and then when he comes back he has to have a new twist on his gimmick.

I street level meta Kingpin *is* a good idea. But Bendis drove it into the ground and then some.

Well the problem with Hood is the same problem we have with Dr. Light post Identity Crisis: After Hood did what he did to Tigra he basically became unusable as a character because that's the thing everyone thinks about when they think of him. I mean, they have done stuff to try and put some closure on it (Like having Tigra tell him off before his wife and kid went in to see him, or that time some of the Young Avengers kidnapped him and videotapped themselves beating an apology out of him), but its always gonna come back to the fact he's the guy who tied Tigra to a bed and filmed her getting beat up by super villains while threatening her mom. As far as I'm concerned we can toss Hood into the dumpster after that, because fuck.

I'm pretty disappointed that most of the characters on this cover didn't get to do anything. I want the huge alley fight that was sort of implied, dagnabit!

I admire Bendis' unwillingness to acknowledge any story not his own, what with Moonstone and Fixer having history with Cage.

And why would Titania give a damn about a regular sword at her throat?

Bendis struggles to write any character above street level, doesn't he?

Echo and DD had a significant relationship but that's not referenced either because it's just not significant to what is going on atm.

Echo's appearance is in a crowd scene on the last page of the issue.

Moonstone/Fixer fight was the main (poorly written) fight of the issue.

A considerable difference.

Unless they had a more meaningful history with Luke than Diamondback, who Luke interacts with the most during the issue, I'm still not seeing the issue.

From: [identity profile] daningram.insanejournal.com
We've seen Luke with Diamondback nearly every issue of this series.

If anything, their relationship is fresher than Luke's with Diamondback. But Bendis simply can't stop repeating himself.

But that aside, my main point is that Bendis uses villains so interchangeable as to make their characters pointless. He accomplishes nothing with them that couldn't be done with another character.

Especially when said villains should be powerful enough to rule the out as antagonists to a street level team.

From: [personal profile] lilacsigil
Yes! This really annoys me because when he puts a bit of work in, Bendis can write memorable and clever villains, but he mostly doesn't bother. He just throws in a few random characters for the heroes to defeat. This is a prime example: Titania and Moonstone shouldn't even be bothered by these heroes (with the POSSIBLE POSSIBLE exception of Danny in full Iron Fist mode).

And let us not forget, he had Moon Knight throwing down with freakin' Count Neferia, a guy who's fought entire teams of Avengers.

The Hood is the new Kingpin. And he has incredible powers.

I give it half an issue before he loses it all again.
