Each member of the
JL has parental issues; every single one of them. That is the main
takeaway from The Villain's Journey. July is also on its way to be
named Royals Lose It month; first, Namor snaps; now, it's Wonder

the present, but in hindsight, it may have been better to stay at
five years ago a little longer to better develop their
relationships. Next month: The fate of Steve Trevor, and it promises
to be a cracker.
