Secret Avengers #23

Well if by now you haven't read Secret Avengers #23 you should. I have to say that I'm not really thrilled with the direction that everything is going in. I want to see more of the Masters of Evil that Remender had in the point 1 issue not so much of the descendents. But more than anything I can't stand what happened to Eric in this issue. I was really starting to like Eric, not sure why maybe it's just how he was portrayed as looking for redemption hoping he had a chance to atone for all his mistakes and such. It just seems like Remender wants nothing more than to dismantle the original team and throw together a bunch of heroes that were better left in limbo or in their own titles. Venom is awesome but I just wish he'd have stayed in his own series and then not have Circle of Four ruined before it concludes. Can't say I'm a fan of Hawkeye as leader, or of Capt. Britain, or Hank Pym, or Jim Hammond. Just wish Moon Knight and War Machine were still around. Well long rant short, RIP Ant Man (Eric O'Grady), you will be missed (by me at least).

Reactions to Ant Man's end welcome, and I do realize that a lot of people probably like Remender's direction here, so I respect that even if I don't like it.
