From what I've seen from panels people have posted, the Jane/Thor scene was really good. I appreciate seeing this side of Thor again, and 'Lord Thunder Britches' made me giggle.

I am also hoping more and more that it's not Roz just because it's so obvious it is Roz.

If it is Roz, I will so apologize and buy all the issues I've skipped just for that twist.

I don't think the main impetus for this is new readers (I mean, beyond the fact that they're always trying to get new readers). They said already they're doing this for Secret Wars. Every single one of these titles is a title that's already got a Battleworld section devoted to it. These are all primers to get people up to speed and hyped for May's event.

@arthurkerr: Not true. For one, he's hit on male characters while male. Secondly, bisexual means being attracted to more than one gender, so it's not like he's magically straight because he is in his feminine form for a while.

I just finished the Old Man Logan trade (forever behind in comics, I know), and was poking around at the Secret Wars announcements regarding him. Marvel's said he'll be one of the characters most affected by Secret Wars, so I was wondering, instead of bringing 616 Logan back, are they bringing Old Man Logan on as the permanent Logan of the new Marvel Universe? I feel like it's a possibility, the way they were talking.

What do you think? Will we get an AU Logan (whether Old Man Logan or someone else) instead of 616 being brought back?

I love this figure, and was super excited to be able to find her and Wanda both (I find it's a lot harder to find the females in the Marvel Legends series; it took me a while to manage to get Black Cat and Black Widow I had to buy at SDCC because I never saw her in store even after months). I didn't think I'd like the masked head, but I ended up liking it a lot more than the open head. It's a really cool figure.

My one complaint is that her energy ball thing looks nothing like her comic book power. It's not even the right color!

He looks amazing. I'm love Aquaman, and this take on the character looks like it is going to be great fun. I love the addition of the tattoos.

Not to mention I could stare at him shirtless all day, so.

@winter_kills: I think you will really enjoy it! This entire book has been strong, but this issue is phenomenal.

@asgaard: I don't think he does, unless she called at some point and told him.

How the Angels will interact... I don't know. There is a lot of potential for them, both good and bad. I haven't been keeping up with Ghost Rider or Dr. Strange, so I couldn't tell you there. Of course, there's a question if they'll survive Secret Wars at all or not...that puts a big halt on things right there.

@asgaard: Loki certainly thought it was Huginn or Muninn, and they did have the same eyes as Odin did. Perhaps Odin has realized the only way to save Loki is to accept him. He even encouraged him to become worthy of himself, not of Thor's power, and encouraged him to remember how to lie.

King Loki is on the cover of the first Secret Wars tie in, gulp... but maybe it's a red herring.

Did you notice that both times the tale about AoA Loki killing kid Loki came up, Verity has said something to the effect of "wait, that's not what I thought?" Something about kid Loki's death is tripping her up. I think both Lokis are lying about it without realizing it. That's what they think happened.

That may very well be what saves Loki -- whatever the truth about kid Loki is. Because Verity definitely thinks something is fishy there, but both times she starts to say something she's cut off and distracted.
