Hot damn!!!! My girls Misty and Colleen are back!!!! And they brought friends....

The basic rundown---Misty Knight and Colleen Wing used to run "Knightwing Restorations", serving as bail bondswomen to the C/D-list super-powered criminals such as Mysterio and Rhino. But with Civil War in full blaze...they have been approached by Iron Man and Friends to help out with their side. But Knight/Wing aren't interested in choosing sides. Instead they come to a compromise---in exchange for govt paychecks and benefits along with Stark resources......they'll hunt down the unregistered villains. And with that---Misty and Colleen put together a group of their own bounty hunters and go to town.






While I have yet to read anything from the Gray/Palmiotti duo that is groundbreaking or a must read---they are consistently entertaining. They bring me the steady entertainment that USM should be.

The art from Tucci/Palmer isn't a huge departure from the art of Khari Evans' work in the most excellent "Daughters of the Dragon"....but it's still a subtle change. If I had to describe it, I'd say "less sexy".

This book is like McDonalds. It's not great and you could do without it......but you know damn well you crave that Big Mac. So give in to the urge and check this out.



4/5

Well, it was better then the first, but Paladin was WAY, and I mean, WAY overpowered and since the begging you know he will betray the team. I wonder if Shang Chi and Cap have something in mind.
Edit: The computer said 7 intruders, but there is only 6 (Misty, Coleen, Black Cat, Humbug, Paladin and Shang Chi)


3/5 <--Paladin vs Heroes for Hire, Cap and Luke Cage? Yeah right.

I haven't read this, but I just wanna say I'm not happy with Paladin on the team. He shot daredevil just over a year ago on a deal with the director of the FBI. It makes me unhappy.

He's not in the team anymore, he just beated the **** out of Heroes for Hire, Captain and Luke Cage.

So I just read #2.....this is good. I thought Paladdin being a traitor was pretty ingenius. But then again it was so obvious that I should've seen it from a mile away.

I always figured Tarantula was gonna be the traitor.


And I don't think he was overpowered. He's a mercenary who went in with a plan and executed as such.

#3 was awesome. I am so sad to see Palmiotti and Gray leave this title because it's so much fun.

In the midst of Civil War---all the heroes are fighting each other but villains are under going radical surgeires to incorporate Skrull organs that allow them to shapeshift in order to hide from heroes and CapeKillers. While those who've read Morrison's New X-Men know that this idea is nothing new...it's still an interesting concept nonetheless.


And the 2 most awesomest things about this issue----it featured Otis Secretary Supreme and Ricadonna is back!!!!


You people better get down with Misty and Colleen!!!!
