    I think there are going to be more OF related stories in the vein of the Pointer story, but an ongoing OF series ... still not convinced we're gonna see that for a long while

    The Pointer story looks like it is gonna be fun, quite looking forward to it.

    Fiorello: I no like-a the second party, either.
    Driftwood: Well, you should've come to the first party. We didn't get home 'til around four in the morning... I was blind for three days!

    Looks and sounds pretty cool! I wish they would put him on the cover for a little promo.

    The villain looks somewhat Wyre-esque, what with the tendrils and all. Could he be making a comeback?

    He remined more of Cloak actually.

    Oh, yeah, and Guardian should be on the cover.

    From the looks of it he would seem to be some kind of Dark Force manipulator, but not anyone I recognise.

    Well, I won't be picking this up if the preview is anything to go by. Not only is Weapon Omega not good enough to be on the cover (not even the back), he gets taken down despite being a hugely powered mutant in the Guardian suit. Yet USAgent, a non-powered hero, takes the fight to the bad guy while dragging Pointer along like a bad date. It seems Marvel is doing the "same old, same old" by the Flight.

    I agree, it looks like USagent is carrying the fight to whoever and Weapon Omega has already been beaten. Art is fine but the two images aren't appealing.

    Is it just me, or the new Guardian a really bad aim? You'd think most folks could look down their arm and line it up with an intended target. Maybe the glowy yellow force field makes it hard to concentrate, or perhaps he has more tears welling up. Either way he's a horrible marksman. Are they trying to show he's inexperienced with the suit or horribly deformed and unable to point his arm in a straight line?

    The art is sweet. Andrea DeVito did some stories with Oeming, and I thought her stuff was very crisp, and very clean.

    I think it's a case of Pointer not wanting to risk killing someone, so he's giving the bad guy a "shot across the bow".

    I believe it was said The new Guardian would be taking the term "reluctant hero" to a new level. I think the preview even minus the words show this.

    Like in OF, he says he doesn't have a handle on his powers yet. While USAgent is a vet. It's a 12 issue story. Of course he's going to get his ass kicked at the beginning. By the end he will be more confident and have better use of what he can do. That's what's fun about this guy. He's new and he can progress.
