Wow, Valiant minus bloodshot=amnesia
Quantum and Woody (2013- ) #1: Digital Exclusives Edition - James Asmus,Tom Fowler,Jordie Bellaire

Maybe I just don't care for any other Valiant characters as much as Bloodshot?  I can get obsessive like that...


Anyway, another one with the same problem: didn't suck one star's worth, and I can't really remember anything so I can't image I thought it was a three star book.

I remember noting about this
Divinity #1 (of 4): Digital Exclusives Edition - Matt Kindt,Trevor Hairsine

I vaguely recalled it didn't suck one star's worth when reading the description but I read this less than a month ago - on the ninth - and nothing stuck in my brain.   I'm guessing it wasn't even worth three stars since I'm blanking on everything else.

Dr. Mirage can talk to the dead - with one exception
The Death-Defying Dr. Mirage (2014) #1 (of 5): Digital Exclusives Edition - Jen Van Meter,Roberto De la Torre

She cannot speak to her husband, who has left her a widow.   That being said, she is tormented by this fact.   When a case drops into her lap that she is less than enthused by, she becomes enticed when it appears this might lead to her finding out where her husband's spirit is - and might actually lead to contact with him. 


Still, it's exactly like a case that went sideways for a former friend, so it's not an ideal situation by any means. 


I'm not super fond of Dr. Mirage as a character.   She just never clicked with me, but this storyline made me more interested than I've been before.

Brilliant Issue 1 (Marvel - Icon ) July 2011 - Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley

Characters were better than in Takio, but not much.   Not enjoying Bendis' solo work as much as his work on Marvel properties.

Love, love, love!
Bloodshot (2012- ) #1: Digital Exclusives Edition - Duane Swierczynski,Manuel Garcia,Arturo Lozzi

Bloodshot is a guilty pleasure: super violent, but not evil.   He's trying to do the best he can, but also can't remember his past.   He's been experimented on, and has nanites that heal him from almost any injury.   


And I love him so damn much.  


In this, his amnesia is abused, by implanting false memories of families and his service in the military.   These emotional hooks are used to manipulate him into running suicidal missions, again and again and again.   When the different memories all crash into each other, Bloodshot starts to realize what's happening to him - and once again must find a way to escape this experimentation. 


It's twisted, and it's right up my alley.
