When did A.I.M. get an island?? Are we talking something like a legitimate gov't or do they simply own it?
Liked the Hyperion insights but where was their Earth's destruction detailed? Like you said tom, is this tied into the events over in New Avengers?
Liked this issue, Kubert's art was decent. Didn't notice this till I saw a post about it on another board. Here in #4, this issue ends with a someone being shown frozen in ice. Just like in another classic #4 where someone in ice is thawed out. Nice touch.
RE: Aim Island: It was in Hickman's own Fantastic Four stories, I believe (around #610). AIM island got recognized officially as a sovereign nation, possibly by the UN, I don't exactly recall. It's "legit" in the same way Doom is "legit" in Latveria.
Knowing that I'm revealing how out of touch I already am w/ current continuity, I'll still ask a couple of idle questions, if I may? AIM always did kind of have a vaguely-located island base (or three), didn't they? But, boy, if anything-- ANYTHING-- were to stretch my suspension of disbelief, it would be them being granted UN membership. Yeesh. Latveria, yes. Genosha, mmmmmmaybe. But AIM? Do they have anything like a civilian population?
RE: Hyperion's world: I don't think that it's been shown before anywhere. It certainly seems to be hinting at a tie-in to the current New Avengers story, to me. I could easily be wrong, though.
Say- there have always sort of been two Hyperions bouncing around the MU, right? The Squadron Supreme fellow (good guy), and the earlier Squadron Sinister guy who we met in, geeze, Avengers #76, was it? I know the latter's whole problem was his rage against humanity for inadvertantly destroying his microverse planet (and that the Vision talked him down from that crisis-state in an annual way, way back. . . ). Do both have the same base origin? And which one does this one seem to be?
