Review of chapter "Chapter 37" from Meneldur
Review:
Well, you know I'd review anyway, but here goes...
So, you're definitely right about streamlining the cast of characters. Really, at some point, probably when the storylines begin to intersect, I'd post a Dramatis Personae, just so everybody will be clear on who's who, how they look and what they can do. Because if Brittany and Natasha having Black Widow attributes is just a bit confusing (especially since I don't recall Brittany mentioning it - keeping it close to the chest, I'd guess), how much more confusing is the new Spider Clan, especially when you start thinking about Janet and Hank's girls in the same place? So, good work on that, and fun interactions, even if it wasn't much different.
Same goes for the second section, I guess. It wasn't anything new, except maybe the last part being a clearer tie-in on how SHIELD will get directly involved in Sunnydale (in case kids with powers/Project X/X Men/Demon Activity/Mystique) wasn't enough.
Anyway, fun chapter, and I hope for more soon.

Review of chapter "Chapter 37" from Starfox
Review:
Good chapter - I loved the economic reasonings, and the interaction between Pym's and Stacy's girls. And of course STacy's thoughts when she accepted Felicia's offer. Fury's reaction to Steve's revelations was the crowning scene though.
Comments from author:
Just think, though... there are girls with Nat and Steve's brains running around in Sunnydale. And until now, we only knew who the latter was...

Review of chapter "Chapter 37" from Letomo
Review:
I'm not suggesting that Rogers wouldn't follow orders - he is a soldier. I'm suggesting that a 'power behind the throne' approach wouldn't work if the orders were ever, in Steve's mind, unethical or immoral.

Otherwise, I'm following this story because it is good, and interesting. Thanks for sharing it!
Comments from author:
Except there has been a power behind his throne for the entirety of his career. That's what you're not getting. Several of the Avengers, generals and the like during World War II, Fury and Coulson in the MCU, et cetera. That's something a soldier like Steve would accept. Unless you're part of that 0.001%, there is always someone telling you what to do, and usually someone telling them what to tell you to do.

Review of chapter "Chapter 37" from Judedeath
Review:
So I don't have a lot to say, I liked the chapter, but I liked the previous version too, I do feel the sciency perspective does help the story, even when the tangent about people are smarter than her this chapter feels more focused and character building than the old one.

I was a little disappointed to see Cassie switched with Sam but your note at the end fixed that, quick question though, when you say closer to her comic incarnation do you mean 616? I'm only asking because this story has a lot of Ultimate Universe stuff.
Comments from author:
I felt that the benefits of bringing in Samantha - such as her intelligence and genetic disorder - outweighed the loss of Cassie, who was essentially a CINO at that point anyway. And yes, I mean that she will appear as Scott's daughter at some point. Possibly having stolen Pym Particles from Scott. I'm not sure how old she'll be in this; Scott is in his mid-thirties and so she can be anywhere from... well, if it was a high school indiscretion that he manned up about, she could even be a legal adult already. Not sure yet in that regard.

Review of chapter "Chapter 37" from Raider
Review:
I noticed you omitted fury himself being disabled in this iteration.
Comments from author:
Yeah, I had done the old version before Cap 1 was out much less IM2 or Avengers. So I'd started developing the universe in some different ways that I decided I didn't like because it would make things hard to keep consistent with future installments of the MCU.

Review of chapter "Chapter 37" from MistofRainbows
Review:
I find it a bit creepy that she went with a tail... that you have to plug in. I enjoyed the part about her tail misbehaving. I'm not sure how a tail would help you absorb the impact other than possibly by making sure you lined up right, there would still be a limited amount of use in that. (At least I would assume that you might get a couple more feet) Overall the chapter was interesting.
Comments from author:
Well, Hank Pym was the mastermind there. And his reasoning is theoretically sound: you need a neural conduction point and the spine is the best place to do so. Especially since humanity still possesses a vestigial tail stub in the proper location.

Review of chapter "Chapter 37" from CageFire
Review:
Another good chapter. Keep up the nice work. :)
Comments from author:
I'm working on it. I'm rewriting part of 38 pretty significantly because it was based on an incorrect timeline, but the rest will fall into line pretty quickly after that.

Review:
I like it- I'm curious, though- are Cordelia and Felicia ever going to meet?
Comments from author:
Yes, somewhere around New Years Eve based on my current timeline.

Review of chapter "Chapter 37" from Letomo
Review:
Actually, reading this, the same thing occurred to me as did the first version - Fury making Romanoff a 'power behind the throne' to the overt Rogers as leader wouldn't work. Captain America will listen to others if there's time, but if he's the leader, he's the leader, and that is that. Plus, he's got the charisma to pull it off. She might think she has him in her control, but do something he feels is morally wrong, and that control is gone. Fury might want to keep that in consideration. Oh, and if they do disagree, the rest of a team, knowing Steve as the leader, would follow him, not Nat.
Comments from author:
If your opinion of Rogers was actually true? Fury's best move would be to have Rogers put down. After all, if he's completely incapable of following the orders of a handler or higher power, he would completely useless to SHIELD or the Avengers Initiative.

Review of chapter "Chapter 37" from Zarthrax
Review:
I particularly enjoy the non-Xander focused chapters, especially the ones where we see this Marvel Movieverse through the lens of The Ultimates version you hammer out. I keep reading this every time it pops up, and haven't been dissapointed so far. Keep up the good work.

More chapters with Pym and Co, and Rogers and Romanov, though....lol
Comments from author:
We're gonna get more Avengers next chapter, too, along with some Asgardians. Woot woot.

Review of chapter "Chapter 36" from raxadian
Review:
If they are descendant of Asgardians, it would explain the magic and why SHIELD and supers have stayed away from there. So Elsa is probably the granddaughter of Loki and Anna the granddaughter of Thor. It could be that time goes way slower there since is a somewhat magical land, that would explain why those two aren't older. And why the place is not more technological advanced. Also, I can totally see Loki and Thor, when they where younger, going for adventure there, then something really humiliating happening and Loki erasing Thor memories of it since Thor would probably end mentioned what happened at some point otherwise. Basically, it could be that the country was founded by both Frost Giants and Asgardians who where exiled or where tired of the war. Then they breed with humans, some of them being homo magi. That would explain Jack Frost and all other things.
Comments from author:
Unlike most people, I don't try to tie the Princess Pixar movies to the others; I keep them in continuity with the rest of Disney's works because that's how the ownership sees them. So we'll see references to Merida and Rapunzel existing in this world alongside Elsa and Anna, but that's it. But considering Thor and Loki were both very promiscuous in Norse mythology (Thor has - discounting children who only appear in one or two manuscripts - three children with three women of three different species), it's not hard to believe that they each had a child with a human at some point in the past and those bloodlines eventually came back together in the royal family of Arendelle...

Review of chapter "Chapter 36" from BrinLondofive
Review:
Part of Aphrodesia and Cordelia's problem isn't just that synthetic vibranium is lighter than natural vibranium.... it's that the shield (from what everyone is saying) is PURE synthetic vibranium. Captain America's shield isn't, despite what agent Carter said in Captain America: The First Avenger. (That being said, Carter was military intelligence, not a metallurgist.)

According to the Official Handbook To The Marvel Universe, Cap's shield is a lamination of vibranium and adamantium. Paper-thin layers of Adamantium for strength between layers of vibranium for kinetic energy impact absorption. That way the shield is MUCH thinner and weighs less than either pure vibranium OR adamantium would be. (Reed Richards pointed out once that attempts to recreate the shield have all been failures, mostly because that the ones doing it keep trying to use an alloy of adamantium or vibranium... only to discover that when you try to do it THAT way, either the adamantium EATS the vibranium or vice-versa. Which is why Dr. Myron MacLain was the only one to succeed - he fell asleep during the process and laminated it *accidentally*! It was only forty years later, going over his own lab notes that Dr. MacLain realized what had happened when all other attempts had failed.)

Of course, Cordelia would probably SERIOUSLY freak if she found out where vibranium comes from... the two meteors that his back in the dinosaur era? According to the writers at Marvel, that's how the pre-Big-Bang entities known as the Celestials reproduce... vibranium, it turns out, is Celestial sperm, essentially.

(Note: edited for spelling)
Comments from author:
Actually, I believe the MCU version was made by Stark and consists of the entirety of the Wakandan vibranium available to the Allies at that point as per Howard Stark's dialogue. Emma's variation isn't a perfect replica and so it's a bit heavier and a bit less absorbent. We'll see in a future chapter that it's not Emma's only test of it; she tests it as a soundproofing structural material in a private rail car she owns.
