"Hi, Jokerman.  At first I was disappointed, since it was dealing with her past and ot progressing the character forward.  I thought that it was just "filler", so to speak.  I did like how Brian Reed portrayed her toughness.  He really poured it on, how tough and resilient she is as a character.  Now, the last part, Issue 34, was very interesting.  Why she had to hide her powers, I can only guess that she didn't want the people she was attacking to know their were super-powers involved (no idea, really).  But I'm sure theres a good reason for it.  I liked the hint that Spiderman got a date with her and possible future couple.  That would be very interesting.  And I must say I really like the fact that she's becoming much, much tougher in attitude and action.  Shewas actually going to blow that guys head off if it wasn't for Spidey intervening!  I want to see her with this attitude fighting super-villians of a higher caliber."
My thoughts exactly...Ms. Marvel #34 really opened up interesting possibilties for future story arcs, and thus, I hope Brian Reed will be able to develop the character further into the bigger roles in Marvel Universe by using them wisely.

But the thing that is really making me itch to know more about is Ms. Marvel #35. The official synopsis for it is:
"A mass suicide by a branch of the Church of Hala has claimed the lives of twenty families. With Captain Marvel gone, Carol Danvers investigates this tragedy performed in his name, putting her directly in the path of would be Captain Marvel replacement: Noh Varr."

Appearently, they will make a pause for the "Ascension" story arc...or will they? I'm really intrigued by the way Carol could handle someone like Noh Varr (now under Osborn's payroll, since he's been confirmed as a member of the Dark Avengers) without using her powers, if Reed decided to keep it under the continuity of the "Dark Reign" timeline.

Carol wasn't powerless.She didn't fly because her mother doesn't want her being Ms.Marvel."
But the way her mother asks her after why she didn't flew ("are your abilities...your powers...are you --") and how quickly she changed subject afterwards ("tell me about dad") made me suspicious...
And what other reason could be enough to make Carol really want to kill someone if this one did not have some part in that kind of predicament?"
Well....
1.She doesn't like to talk about being Ms.Marvel with her mother,because her mother never wanted her to do it in the first place which is why they don't get along.
2.Regular Carol Danvers has no chance of killing Norman Osborne.

You know what though.I wont say for sure my theory is correct.Your theory is definitely a possibility.Ms.Marvel hasn't been Ms.Marvel since Issue 30.
"
My thoughts exactly...and you were right: my theory was wrong. It seems she's not powerless, but she can't use her powers for some particular reason. And the reason why is still unknown, but probably it has something to do with the "Ascension" thingy. I just wanted to know what kind of role the Dark Avengers will play in all of that...

And guys...at least, it seems pretty obvious that Daken is "Dark Wolverine" considering the cover and all...but the others besides Marvel Boy, Ares and Sentry are still a mystery to me! Any guesses?

"Points taken, but ammends will be made, not to mention she has a little history of letting some of the New Avengers "fugitives" go when she could have arrested them.  I just want to see her become a leader.  It probably will be Cage or Cap (because of his symbolic nature)."
Yeah, it seems that Cage or Cap will surely keep leading roles in New Avengers...but my bets are all for Cage, since Bendis got some kind of weird fascination about him somehow...but let me make myself clear that I don't think he's a bad character or something like that. I just hope Carol will get some opportunity to lead the team in a particular situation as well...after all, she's made things with Norman Osborn pretty personal with the whole "Ascension" situation going on...

By the way, Kid Crow, what are your thoughts about Ms. Marvel's current story arc - "Secret Agent Carol Danvers"?

"Huh-uh, you just keep saying that because thats your opinion. I like all 3 titles."
So do I. In my opinion, Punisher's MAX series is still a good read even after Garth Ennis left. I just wanted that Jigsaw could play some role of bigger impact in the current arc "Girls with White Dresses"...but who knows? There's always other story arcs, right?

It does make sense those Dark Avengers will be T-Bolts, actually. I don't know if any of you guys read Ms. Marvel v2 #31, but here's a little spoiler for those who didn't:

There's been a lot of speculation about who is gonna take Strange's role after Secret Invasion. According to some recent interviews, Brian Bendis revealed he failed in his duties, and therefore, he no longer holds that title. He also mentioned that in Dark Reign it will be revealed who the new Sorcerer Supreme is.
Maybe Marvel solicitations for February 2009 have finally given us some clues about that mystery. This is one of the 50/50 cover halves for Hulk #10, penciled by Ed McGuiness. Apparently, the original Defenders will come back to face Rulk and his new gang.

So...who is that blue guy wearing Doctor Strange's Cloak of Levitation? Any suggestions, folks?

Hey guys...do you know who's gonna be the next writer in Punisher MAX series after Garth Ennis is gone? I heard his last issue as the writer will be #60...

I really hope Marvel choose one who honors the dark and more realistic universe that Ennis created around Frank Castle's persona...well, my fingers are crossed anyway!
