"Hello, hero. This is Control. Are you for hire tonight?" These words slide out of the shimmering lips of a woman we see only in extreme close-up. The background is obsidian, and her face is so shadowed that all we can see are those full lips and the sparkles from a large gold hoop earring. We can almost hear a 1970s funk soundtrack softly thumping in the background.

Fix, aku suka Misty Knight xD ga cuma detektif tapi Misty juga punya bakat uat jadi leader.

Masalah di sini beribet juga sih tentang perdangangan narkoba bebas dari warga Atlantean yang disebar ke dunia 'atas'. Musuh utamanya masih belum ketebak jelas karena Mister Pupet, Purple Man, Monster itu bukan musuh utama para Heroes For Hire, dan Namor lah yang di akhir cerita janji ke Misty kalau dia yang ambil alih dan bakal ngerus segalanya.
Yang aku suka di ceritanya ga semua hero/anti her

It felt like the comic equivalent of a late, late night talkshow where you're just waiting for the next B (or C) level hero to show up and do their thing rather than feel engaged in a thin plot (even for a multi-hero team up title). Fun for what it is, but only kind of

Granted, I don't read many Marvel comics and I wasn't familiar with some of the characters beyond their name. But it seemed like someone wanted to shove as many superheroes as they could into one GN and scrambled for a story to justify their use. Bit disappointing as the art was excellent.
