One the plus side, he seemed to have done his homework. He knew who would be in the mansion, even Victoria Hand and Wong. He showed a strong leadership side. He was very calculated and no one questioned him. Don't think I've EVER seen Wonder Man that authoritative before. And, as you stated, he waited until the baby was out of harms way to attack.
Although it doesn't seem like much, that last point could be very important because Bendis could have had the team attack and had it understood that the baby was gone(or worse yet, just attack while the baby was there)but he went out of his way to add that detail of Simon waiting for the child to leave before attacking. Maybe he was trying to make the point that Wondy isn't evil, just fed up.
One last thing, he asked if Ms Marvel was there-was he hoping she wasn't to protect her or hoping she was to prove something to her? Hmmm...
I really hope the annuals become a hit which will lead to the "Revengers"(HATE that name)sticking around as an actual team for a while. I would love to see what a team hand picked and lead by Simon could do. But then again, I just hope Wonder Man survives when all is said and done!
