I like the bits with Rage and Justice - I liked how Dan dealt with the aftermath of Stamford from the surviving Warriors' perspectives in She-Hulk #8, and it's pleasing to see more of that (honestly, it hadn't occurred to me, even after seeing that they'd be involved in A:TI).
Heck, I like all of the preview. As usual, it feels like there's a lot more than six pages' worth of story there - I've seen previews that barely get into what the issue is about, whereas this one set up a whole bunch of plot threads. Only problem is, I got to the end and wanted to keep reading right now dammit!
Nice first glimpse of the Gauntlet, I like. He reminded me ("mother-luvin'" and other things) of Sgt Zim, from Starship Troopers, delivering his opening tirade to the new recruits:
"He never once repeated himself and he never used either profanity or obscenity. (I learned later that he saved those for very special occasions, which this wasn't.) But he described out shortcomings, physical, mental, moral, and genetic, in great and insulting detail."
Even if it's just a coincidental resemblance (it's not like a few panels are enough to tell, anyway), I definitely think I'm going to like the guy. The idea of a superhero drill sergeant just rocks, and I can't really think that it's been done before, at least not in anything well-known enough that I've heard of it (though just wait, I'm sure now that I've said that, ten of them will pop up).
Re: how his arm stays attached, I assumed when Pelletier took over from Bobillo and Southpaw's gauntlet suddenly went from arm-sized to small-car-sized that it was generating its own anti-gravity and anti-inertia field so that, from her point of view, it'd be weightless. If that's it, no doubt Gauntlet's works the same way.
One thing I'm very curious about: did Dan know thatSpoilers:when he came up with MVP? Because that's a huge load of story possibilities right there.
Captain America was going to meet his maker
Anyone think Kid Glove might be Gauntlet's daughter?
