I have indeed missed Iceman.

Surely Legion is a bit unhinged as well to say the least. With all his personalities he's a complete nut! I'd think anyone who consistently goes out of their way to help as many people as they can all the time could be argued as obsessive if not a little mentally strange. In this world, everyone is selfish, me included. So all these heroes seem a little weird in the head if you ask me, the villains who want only for themselves are more comparable to real people. That's what I think anyway. To solve the problem, do what they did to Hulk, fire 'em off into space, problem sovled.
It would be very unrealistsic for there to be no casualties during these epic battles. I would argue that a villain is not a villain unless he does something malevolent i.e. world domination, sure, but that would most definately require killing some people. I liked it when Black Manta behind that fish counter, killed those innocent people just 'cus he's a nutter.
The innocents need to realise they are really nothing in comparison to metahumans or whatever superpowered being, mutant etc. and give them a wide birth so as to avoid becoming collateral damage. I think even though they help, superheroes should genuinely be feared more than respected by the general populus, for what they are capable of.
I think thus far it looks a treat, just as the first one. I have a few apprehensions about it, nothing major, but I don't want his powers to be exaclty the same, sure keep the devastators, and the armour and the blade, but I would like to see some new stuff. As much as I loved InFamous 2, one thing was that the powers were all too familiar (except the fire and ice). I also don't agree with the story, I loved Alex Mercer,("murderer, terrorist.... I'm all these things") and the fact he wasn't a straight cut hero, he had a malevolent side, I wish they'd have kept the same main character rather than make him the antagonist so he'll be unplayable and rarely seen (this is something I can only assume, I could be wrong). Plus Mercer tried to contain the virus, not spread it, why would he suddenly go polar opposite (no doubt all will be revealed)? I find the dead family and wanting revenge story a little cliche I must admit. These really are minor things though, I'm still very excited and hope it will be just as good as the first!
I'm getting confused, possibly because fo the revamp. Is Tim Drake going to be slightly younger now? And is Superboy a cyborg clone now (If so, then he's like the eradicator right)?
Very good point, one which I have pondered also. "One team to rule them all" as it were. There's no need for all these sub-groups with strange or constantly altering rosters, every hero who wants to be on the Avengers and is sanctioned to should be part of a massive group. But of course there wouldn't be so many titles then.
There's taking inspiration from, and then there's plagiarism, to me it seems this tends towards the latter. I have no problem with Barbara taking on the Bat mantle again, but why would the "tron" anti-virus resemble her? I can't imagine software taking on a gender specific form, unless we are on the grid, which this isn't. And I suppose those crimials manifested out of random code or something? A silly plot deivce if so.
@Jordanstine: What were these from? I recognise Spidey's suit but not the others, they can't be the Mighty..
