I think you're stupid dude. Rest of heroes doesn't like Spider Man, because Kingpin does all the parades. And he doens't know that Spider Man is Peter. No one said it.

I honestly don't see the buzz for this issue. The art was certainly great, but the story was bland and uninteresting. If you like listening to X-23 and Honey Badger banter for 20 pages, then this is the issue for you. It has a really good story going for the Stepford Cuckoos, but I was already too bored and too done with the issue to care about that. X-23's internal monologue was also very good bu more

heh :) we are the opposite. the art is going to have to grow on me, but the story was great for me. then again, I fell in love with the characters during Tom Taylor's run. I was really dreading "losing them" in this run. to each his own I guess.

I am very happy with this fresh Start. Tamaki still remains true to the tone that brought success to Tom Taylor's run. My hope is that they can keep in strong contact about the ongoing story because Taylor continues to write my favorite Marvel team book in X-men Red and that book still uses Laura and Honey Badger quite well and keeping continuity would be nice.

this is strange for a few reasons. first of all the issue itself is very non-standard. it is interesting and seems good.

however, it is hard to really say I LIKE IT because.. Tom King just hasn't yet earned anything other than distrust.. and this issue leaves the door open for some really awful "next issue" stories. any other writer and I'd be saying this was good and entertaining. more
