Sticking to my guns
Avengers (2016-) #9 - Mark Waid,Mike Del Mundo,Alex Ross

1/2 starring everything about Secret Empire.   Because Cap was a symbol and he can change, but turning him into a fascist when he's the symbol of anti-fasicm isn't just changing him, or tweaking him, it goes beyond a simple 'change.'   It betrays the trust of the readers and it betrays the character himself, it betrays what he stands for, and thus makes him no longer a symbol of what he once was. 

 

Worse that this is the Marvel universe that was meant to be.

Ms. Marvel
Marvel Universe Avengers: Ultron Revolution (2016-2017) #11 - Joe Caramagna,Various

Ms. Marvel shows up.   Ultron wanted Black Bolt to use his voice to destroy shit, because apparently hey, that's always evil and fun.   Instead, the device to amplify Black Bolt's voice was used to spread Terrigen Mist.   So.   Many.   Nuhumans.  

 

Including Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel.   And she's apparently a whole lot of fun in any continuity.

Avengers and Inhumans versus Ultron
Marvel Universe Avengers: Ultron Revolution (2016-2017) #10 - Joe Caramagna,Various

And I kind of love this.   I know it's weird, but I just absolutely love seeing Black Bolt imprisoned, or locked, and chained up.   I don't know what it is.   The whole muzzling him, or trying to force him to use his voice?   Yup, I guess it's just my hurt/comfort kink getting it's jam on.   I don't think that completely explains it; I don't like it for certain characters, I like it for Black Bolt - and others - though. 

 

Anyway, this was super, super exciting for me, particularly since I have a thing for Ultron, I love me some Black Bolt, and Ultron locks Black Bolt up and tries to force him to use his voice. 

 

So, yay for that convergence of things I like.

Avengers and Inhumans
Marvel Universe Avengers: Ultron Revolution (2016-2017) #9 - Joe Caramagna,Various

When Terrigen Mist is let into the world, the Inhumans come to find that there's a cocoon.   They're as surprised as the Avengers, but also determined to claim the cocoon and the Inhuman inside.   (They want to help the Nuhuman through their transition.)

 

In this continuity - I believe the new cartoon continuity - the Inhumans believe that all their descendants are in Attilan.   I love the interaction between the two teams, despite the fact that there could have been more nuance in this story in general.   (I wish companies, like Marvel, would accept that children's stories doesn't translate to dumbing things down.)

 

Still, seeing the royal family was nice, and the Nuhuman was a nice bonus: I was aware of him from other Marvel titles, and I think working him in as an ambassador for Attilan and the Inhumans who lives outside of Attilan - he wanted to stay with his home, family and friends - is a nice way to get the royal family involved again should Marvel choose to in the future.
