Let's lay down our arms for a moment, because whether you love or hate this book I think these are valid (related) questions that will need to be answered at some point as they require suspending disbelief to staggering heights. Namely,
For real, how did Arcade kidnap these kids?
How are people outside Murder World reacting?
Granted, there's a lot we don't know. Perhaps some of you don't even think they were really kidnapped, that not only is Murder World a simulation but the entirety of the plot, Arcade included, is part of a simulation. But supposing that they have in fact been kidnapped by Arcade (whether they're really killing each other or not), how exactly did he pull that off? Most of these kids were under plenty of protection. Cammi was quite literally pulled out from under S.W.O.R.D.'s nose.
I'm going to try giving Hopeless the benefit of the doubt here by assuming that will be explained at some point, but I'm curious as to whether anyone has thought of a reasonable explanation.
And regardless of how, presuming they've been kidnapped, there are quite a few people from almost every corner of the Marvel universe who will be very, very unhappy about these disappearances. It really wouldn't be feasible to ask readers to just believe no one noticed the kids were gone. Once again we'll presume this isn't an actual plot hole but merely something that hasn't yet been explained. How do you think that question will be resolved?
Note: Can this please be a thread in which opinions about the series' quality/existence are left out? Thanks.
