First of all, given that she was born in a lesbian utopia in a parallel dimension with no actual concept of what latina, latinamerica or even the United States is -- why is the cover a homage to Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the USA" album?

Isn't "Pa'lante" usually a slang puerto rican drag queens use?

Quality writing right there! Seriously, this comic continues to be hilariously bad! Like a bunch of the Spanish is grammatically and/or spelled wrong. The last time I saw spanish that bad in a Marvel comic was in the Edmonson run of Punisher, and that's because he wanted to write authentic spanish and he sucked at it -- but at least he had the excuse o more

It's not One More Day, and I know they joked about that in a previous issue -- but goddamn if I'm not pissed off by Soule undoing Kirsten and Matt's relationship.

David Gabriel is a moron for saying Diversity is at fault for the Marvel Sales slump; that's not the case, that has never been the case -- I blame bad writing and events, and this comic is a perfect example of bad writing.

I feel cheated on two fronts.

First, the reveal of the whisper that brought down Thor feels like a reenactment of the Heckler messing up Happy Gilmore's mojo at a golf tournament.

Thor has had self-doubts in the past; heck, even Jane commented him having doubts is what made him strive to be a better god and be worthy of Mjolnir in a previous issue of Unworthy Thor...

The Roy Harper flashbacks were weird.

And even if I agree with Percy's politics way more often than not, it's how crudely and forced they were injected here that makes this issue somewhat jarring -- and I say this as someone that owns the Dennis O'Neil and Mike Grell GA collections.

Agreed. Scott Lobdell is capable of great work. GENERATION NEXT #1-4 (Marvel, Age of Apocalypse) may be the best series he has ever written. The first 10, or so, issues of RHatO Volume 1 were pretty good too (issue #3, if I'm remembering correctly, was particularly great). His TEEN TITANS and SUPERMAN runs, on the other hand...

I have a love/hate relationship with this comic. I love the story in and of itself, but hate it when Fraction/Zdarsky just start patting themselves in the back with how witty their meta-commentary is.

Luckily, they kept the meta-commentary to the recap pages and out of the actual story... and hope they can keep it like that, because that's what I hated from the previous arc.
