cass, can you not

007.1, if you will

One of the nice aspects of the ongoing James Bond comics is that they portray a Bond who's more generally knowledgeable and competent at his job than the movies'. Yes, that Bond eventually got the job done, but things always got screwed up before he did, and his operational craft outside ill-advised sex and violence was, to say the least, suspect. The current Bond is a recognizable version of that one, but he's also more of a professional. When things get screwed up, it's despite his best efforts, not because make a mess and then figure it out is his default tactic.
