I hate her new costume

That's Porcupine's costume; she's just wearing it because she's under-cover as him.

saying hi?

seems pretty innocuous to me.

Hey, do me a favor, go up to some random stranger, sneak up really close, like within one foot of them when they're not looking and wait till they turn around and face you and then "just say hi." Extra points if you do it in a mask. Tell me if that's actually "saying hi."

the mask thing's a fair point. But I still maintain that that's only harassment in the very broadest sense. And it's not in the preview that she sneaks up on them, only that they don't notice her approach.

I'm just saying it's a bit of an assumption that she's there to confront them because they're doing graffiti; kids could be breaking into a construction site after dark for all kinds of reasons, none of which are legal or (as we do see) especially safe. Obviously startling them turned out not to be the best way to check their safety, but there's nothing here to imply that she's there because they're doing graffiti (or even that she meant to startle them, really).

Sure she does, they're just minding their own business, and she sneaks up on them and freaks them out. That's pretty harassy to me.

Great series and I hope the title will last AFTER the movie got out also...I hate to know that they made it only as a promotion for the movie..Ant Man deserves better!!

I kind of agree, but from one way of looking at it, Marvel must agree too. The fact that he's getting his own movie increases how popular he has a chance of being, so in a way the movie (and even the ads for the movie) are kind of promotion for him getting his own comic.

Obviously the movie will make them more money, but they must realize that the movies' strengths are largely drawn from having a wealth of source material. Really both the movies and the comics (as well as the cartoons, tv shows, etc) are promotion for the other.

And considering that Ant-man hasn't ever had his own cartoon or tv show to make him more well known outside of comics (as Cap', Thor, Hulk, Iron Man, Spider-man, the X-men, and the FF have), I just think it's great he's finally getting some mainstream attention.

That the movies are more popular than the comics isn't a bad thing; more people like movies than read comics is all. But Ant-man is a great character, and I agree that he deserves to be in good stories -regardless of what medium those stories are told in.

mh. the Thing looks more like rocks than last time, but less like the comics because of it.

it all looks fine, anyway.. it'll be the voices that make or break it more than the looks.

Seeing Vampire Wolverine guy makes me wish there was a Vampire on the Avengers.

:v me too..

The art in the series is fantastic. Of all the pandering and PR stunts this is the only one Marvel has done that makess some damn sense. Falcon IS the one most likely to inherit the Captain America mantle. Other than Bucky he is the next logical choice, and there is actually a REASON why Steve can no longer be Cap.

I know Bucky's popular, but I would argue Sam actually makes the most sense.

@oldnightcrawler: I just realized that sounded like an insult to you. No, I was just pointing out that the guy comparing gays to pedophiles and zoophiles is extremely bigoted, as are most comments on this particular subject. I was in agreement to your response.

yeah, no, that's what I figured.

you were just a little vague on that last statement, I was more asking for what you meant by that.
