Face-to-face with Mitch Carson, the agent he horribly scarred during his initial escape from S.H.I.E.L.D. and currently in S.H.I.E.L.D. custody–Eric O’Grady is in a bit of a pickle.

    I see the Illuminati series is still doing nothing to make those guys seem heroic.

    I agree about the non-heroic part but it was also great to see that conversation. I don’t know if I liked Namor and Reed finally getting it out in the open about Sue or the line ‘Black Bolt is laughing at you in his mind’.

    And I swear every month I won’t look at these things, especially my favorite series (Ms Marvel) but this time I’m glad I did. If there wasn’t at least a little dampness in one eye after that exchange between Carol Danvers and Hank McCoy, you’re less human than the Vision.

    Illuminati: I haven’t cracked up this hard since the poker game. “Silent War” kind of takes the fun out of it, though…

    Ms. Marvel: Awwwwwwwwwwww. Leia/Wicket moment.

    Ant-Man: Jeez. I know it’s going to make me puke, and I still can’t wait.

    FF: Oh, that’s gonna be some sweet payback. The real idiots always ASK for it.
