** That might also explain the safehouse Nico had.
** G. Willow Wilson must have a fetish for having non-white teenage girls travel alone on planes to visit distant relatives in their country of origin, because it happens with Kamala Khan too.

** Nico gets the staff, cries "Money!", and problem solved. Or at least, [[IntimidatingRevenueService until the IRS discovers that]].

** They are not the first teenagers in the world with that mindset. There are two main options: 1) they simply grow up and mature, 2) they don't grow up, become anarchists, and keep the same mindset but replacing "adults" with "the system" (or choose some other radical ideology), or 3) some of them go for 1) and others for 2)

** As for Dr. Doom, why would he waste his time taking over a city without Reed Richards in it?

to:

*** Oh, and were planning on destroying them all for [[spoiler: letting Gert die]]. At that point, either you delete memories or you make them unable to act on the future information, and either way, however necessary, is still going to hurt them.




to:

** More because most of the A-list villains insist on "worthy opponents", There's just no glory in defeating some hero nobody's ever heard of, and all of the most famous ones are in New York.




to:

** As the Oz books once said of a similar book, it's not going to tell you everything. The book is going to tell you the most relevant content, in an author-appropriate level of detail, and that's it. Heck, it wouldn't be shocking if that section stopped at, "... and perform the rite in this manner for as long as you live."




to:

*** Well, these are the leftovers. Remember, the rest of the Majesdane died with the planet, including their top troops.




to:

** Well, two options [resent themselves: Either they wanted to goad the Pride into exceeding expectations (see who kill the most when Paradise is on the line) or the Gibborim were lying and never planned to take ''anyone'' with them in the end.

* Okay, this has been driving me crazy...in many stories its said that the Runaways are low on money. So how the heck did they afford the fantastic drug addiction that Victor had, ie, with a metal that's as rare as Vibranium!? To a lesser extent, how did Nico afford the plane ticket to Japan, in A-force: Hypertime? I can't imagine the douche looking relatives helped pay for it.

** From what I could gather from ''The Vision'', the Vibranium was apparently just laying around, and Chase, being Chase, didn't realize how valuable it actually was and thus let Victor use it, and the supply that they had lasted up until around ''ComicBook/SecretInvasion''. Of course, how his parents ever got their hands on Vibranium in the first place is still unexplained. As for Nico's trip to Japan, it's possible she just flew there under her own power or teleported or conjured up some manner of transportation.

* This isn't as much of a qualm with the plot as it is something this troper has had trouble with while reading the series. Is it determined whether Karolina's name is pronounced as "Ka-ro-LEE-na" or "Ka-ro-LIE-na?" My gut tells me it's the latter, seeing that her parents took the surname of [[spoiler: American actor JamesDean when they came to Earth,]] which probably means they wanted her name to sound more "American." But at one point, Molly calls her "Lina bean." It could be read as "LEE-na bean," as it would be a rhyming pun, but it could also be read as "LIE-na bean," for its closeness to "Lima bean." Wow, my [[YourHeadAsplode brain really hurts...]]

*** Andrea and Andreas had the added bonus of being modified and have a gift that needed each other, the Hayes seem to split up for a short period on panel, but given their bond might be telepathic compared to the Struckers they could still be in contact.




to:

** Gene does describe it as a "pureblood" union, which in Marvel mutant land one might assume means mutants only. As some children of mutants do have similar mutations in a parent-to-child relation, but rare to find mutants with the exact same gift outside of family. Gene and Alice may not be Brother-Sister, but the way they used the term "pureblood" would be consistent with a family that doesn't let their trees branch too far.




to:

** Traditions of course only apply to those who do not avert them. It may be uncommon, but certainly not without possibility they changed it to be Minoru at some point. Especially given the couple we are talking about are dark sorcerers who are in a plan to wipe out most of the world. Using a name outside of tradition doesn't seem like it would be a big deal to them.
