Review of chapter "chapter seven" from RogueAngel
Hey, thanks for the update. Nice to see the start of the hero meetings. Buffy would be a hard one to convince, with her I just wanna be a normal girl thing. Maybe she came be told its not her destiny to fight the forces of darkness alone and die young anymore (that point only would have her happy), but that she could choice to help those she loves protect the innocent. Which in the end she might go for, Buffy is nothing if not a hero. Adding protecting her loved ones to helping those in trouble. Because truthfully is Buffy really did wanted to stop being the slayer, she would have. But her guilt about not helping when she could and her desire to protect keep pulling her back. Maybe work with that?
Looking forward to more.

Review of chapter "chapter seven" from Redsfan
Cordelia's not that hard, she's always wanted power to help fight against the darkness.This time though, she won't have to rely on others for the power to do so.Just show her that the abilities will help her meet her goals.

Buffy-might be a bit tricky. She's got the slayer powers already, it'll be hard to balance any new powers with that.She might ask Giles if there's a way to transfer her Slayer powers to a potential. That might help as far as taking on new ones.

Oz will be the real hard one.It might be a bit tricky to get him to agree to it.

As for Sunnydale, they might just decide to stay there until they finish high school. They'll need some time to come to terms with their powers.As for leaving, they are evil forces and Hellmouths all over the world.

I'm not sure interludes are needed.

Review of chapter "chapter seven" from Studyofchaos
Nice chapter. One word of caution... if you are going to show the reaction of the heroes, make sure you have the "room" in your current story to do so without disrupting the flow of what you are trying to do with this story. That or do a short side story. Looking forward to the next chapter!

Review of chapter "chapter seven" from hamishog
Interludes would be good.
I like the addition of Joyce as she had too little interaction in the show for someone who was actually pretty central to the majority of the characters. And mixing her with Sue is perfect as Sue's powers are almost the ultimate expression of mother - the ability to wrap yourself in a protective field or to disappear when you don't need to be noticed. Uh oh, Dawn and Buffy will never again be able to get away with anything as they won't be able to know if their mother is in the same room. Icky.
Xander and Willow were a given as the two of them aren't really all that connected to their old lives. Personally I think Xander wrote himself off the minute Jesse was turned. He's never exactly believed, or seemed to care, that he had a future, hence his inability to plan for it.
And, just an aside on relationships - Xander, Willow and Cordelia have a connection which has been in existence since kindergarten. It is adversarial but it is a connection. Xander and Willow have a connection. In fact, by observation their connection most closely follows the idea of soulmates, and no, that's not actually a romantic ideal. The legendary Greeks, Castor and Pollux, were soulmates though not romantically involved so whether Willow and Xander ever date or not is entirely moot. They are bonded. And that is an observable fact. I never liked the Xander Cordelia vibe but that's my kink. To my mind it was entirely hormonal and pretty much doomed which is why both times Cordelia dumped him was about pride. Sure, the second time she got a rebar through her stomach but it was still about pride. I didn't like the Oz Willow connection but that's probably because I'm not a big fan of Seth Green. Giles and Jenny have a connection. It makes no sense whatsoever but they have a connection. Though the way she teases him makes me think that there may be daddy issues there. Giles and Buffy have a connection as do Buffy and Dawn and Joyce. You could make a chart but the reality is that the Summers family is the core (and the Summers family actually consists of the Summers and Xander and Willow) with Giles, Jenny and Cordelia as satellites. That's not denigrating anyone. Cordelia really grew as a person in the show though I think that Xander's influence on that is overstated. Jenny was never fully developed. I blame Joss. But then since he killed off Book and Wash in Serenity I am inclined to be less than charitable to the man. But, connections exist. They may not go where you want them to go but they're there. And the addition of artificial imprints (the Avengers in this case) are going to affect how they develop and are expressed. The impetus that started a lot of the pairings in the show just aren't going to exist. Explore it, don't ignore it. Just my twist.
And remember, Giles will do something because it's his duty. So will Jenny, if you think about it. Buffy will do it, likewise, but mostly because it will protect her loved ones. Dawn will do it, period. She'll jump at the chance because she won't care about the consequences. Oz and Cordelia will be the hardest. Oz is very zen but he's also pretty passive. Oz will help but at this time he doesn't have the emotional connection he would have had later. On the other hand he'll understand and empathize with Spider Man and understand his motivations. He may view it as karma; if he turns his back on a chance to make a difference isn't he, in effect, condemning others whom he might have spared. Oz might do it but it would be a rational, not emotional, choice. Cordelia is harder. At this point in time she is not yet integrated into the group, however she has a greater connection with both Willow and Xander than she does with anyone except, perhaps, Harmony. While antagonistic Xander and Willow are fixtures in her life. While it was never addressed Jesse was fixture in her life as well, albeit as a inconvenience. But she could count on his adoration, his idiocy. She might not like it but she could count on it. And she, Xander and Willow are natives, born and bred. Xander's family has been in town for generations. Oh, and Xander, Willow and Joyce have a relationship. Almost from their first meeting Joyce became their picture of motherhood. They were starved for affection and they responded frenetically to the offhand way she presented it to them. Okay, if Maggie Walsch had met them at this stage she could have happily written papers on the whole group and probably given the Initiative a miss.
And I hate Angel, but I blame that on Ann Rice. And that other one. And those sparkly guys. What is it with people and vampires? Why do people find something that regards you as lunch sexy? And don't even get me started on Red Riding Hood.

Review of chapter "Chapter six" from raxadian
Namorita? Well, she kind of became a joke character in Marvel even before she was in that losers team. Plus Buffy would hate not looking human anymore.

Review of chapter "chapter seven" from DragonBard

Willow as Ironman or Dr Strange... tough call. Too bad you couldn't have a version of Ms Stark who was also Sorcerer Supreme, like that one What If comic.

Review of chapter "Chapter five" from raxadian
I should make a checklist of things that always happen n Hallowen fics.
Comments from author:
Let's be honest here and lay all our cards down yes? Both you and I have decided to take on two topics in our stories that often no matter how hard we try to steer clear of will hit some clichés no matter how innovative we get. You genderbending, me Halloween. Now I get the feeling you will find other things that will ping on your senses and say that has been done before, I will not deny this as I will more than likely hit this cliché on occasion just as you do in your works when you flip Xander's gender (you could do so with others but you mostly pick him and that is cliché you have to admit). Now and here you must decide, do I invest further time in this story or do I move on? If you moved away from this type of fics than you best cut your loses because there is no denying I will hit many road that have been taken in my quest to try to bring something new, I do not know if I will succeed but try I must.

I do not say this as an insult but as one author to another as well from one reader to another.
