Attuma: I'd never noticed the resemblance of Attuma's chestplate to a bat-symbol...which is really bizarre, considering that he lives underwater and would never have seen a bat! I'm guessing he came across a sunken ship (or sunk one himself), found a shipment of Bacardi, and just liked the look of this "fantastic beast"...

Aurora: "A much later and particularly dumb story..." Love it!

Avalanche: "Your name shouldn't be a thing that exists." That's going to be a strike against a LOT of characters...

Wow, with the next issue, you'll finally wrap up issue #1! Just 19 more issues to go after that...

Thinking of future installments, when you finally get around to the "Books of the Dead," I imagine you'll be informing the ladies as to which characters actually AREN'T dead anymore, in case that influences their ratings...

Wow, I was SURE the girls were drunk this time around! Another great episode, I was laughing along throughout. When one of the girls (Josee?) said she'd hooked up with a dude who was 6'7", I'm surprised nobody said "Who put you up to it?"

Aurora's split personality was weird; she was flirty with some people and rude with others (though sometimes I think that was just her being an asshole). They didn't really dwell on her mental condition much, though they did do that clichéd scene where she cut off all her hair while looking in the mirror. Or maybe being raised by strict nuns had something to do with her being a bit wacked out. I don't remember much of Aurora and Northstar's crappy French, but it seems to me they said "Sapristi!" a lot.

Avalanche using his powers out here in Saskatchewan? Well, he could probably plough a field in no time, so maybe he'd be in demand.

I find the idea of Captain America and Hulk sharing bunk beds hilarious...I hope Cap's on top! Whoever thought Scarlet Witch was a bad guy (Josee again, maybe?) was kinda right; she and Quicksilver started off in the comics working for Magneto, but quickly switched sides. Siskoid, I agree with you about the West Coast Avengers...I never got why everyone seemed to hate them so much. In Stern's original miniseries they were shown as equals to the original team, but the whole "inferiority complex" thing you mentioned seemed to come in later, when Englehart was writing them.

That was all Elyse. You'll get the hang of it eventually.

YES! Sapristi is exactly the kind of bull I mean. It's not Quebecois whatsoever. It's Batroc-speak! That and mangled masculine-feminine.

Ahhhh, sorry Elyse (and Josee)! I have to say, you all do sound remarkably alike :)

Every time I hear Attuma's name, I hear Arnold Schwarzenegger in Kindergarten Cop. "It's not Attuma!"
