silly question, but does this make reference to this new continuity ? or is it a complete stand alone issue ?
I mean, if you wanted could you fit this in between issue 154 and 155 of the original marvel run if you wanted to , or not ?
At some point CC says to Mindbender: "I have to figure out a new plan to counter what Destro and Baroness are up to about disrupting our deal with Darklon."
So it would have to be after Mindbender's resurection and before Darklon's death. And you'd have to come up with a reason why Destro and Baroness were trying to counter a deal btw CC and Darklon.
Anyway, I thought it was classic Hama to set the action in an amusement park, but since Cobra has been in Broca Beach, we've been seeing a lot of this kind of scenery, so I would have hoped for something diffrent, like a SM type covert op in the jungle or something.
Was wondering if anybody else caught the references to the Norwegian killer from last year. This Ted CG was going to blow up part of the park with fertilizer bombs and shoot other people on an island. Striking similarity. Plus he had an anti-immigrant thing going and chose Ellis Island, how creepy.
Then he blames the students for taking minimum wage jobs.
The background of it all was great.
My least favorite thing was how all this coincidences allowed the Joes to stay on his tail. Oh, luckily Mainframe cracked Cobra's codes recently. Luckily Zartan wrote Bergendorf's name on that scratchpad. Luckily Zartan chose to ride his motorcycle. Luckily Mainframe caught the police call on this. Luckily Mainframe was able to backtrack all the calls from Bergendorf's phone.
Overall it was ok, but not an absolute must.
