Re: AVENGERS: Grade, Reviews, Discuss, DVD & Sequel **SPOILERS**
Yeah, Coulson flat out said that the weapon was made after Loki sent The Destroyer to Earth.
Yes, I heard that part the first time around. What I didn't catch was that the weapon itself was based on The Destroyer's technology/"main weapon."
Just because it was made after the Destroyer's attack doesn't mean that it was made to operate as one.
As for Fury's Big Week Comic. I picked up #2 and #3 the other day at my LCS for FCBD, and am holding off on reading them until I can get my hands on #1 and #4.
Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.
