  Frank has always been decent to me, if a bit wordy at times, but this, this was horrible.

  This began as it ended... It's the circle of crap.

  Who knew that the cure for fatal gunshot wounds was being frozen in ice for a century or two. And that the cure for a coma is fire! Truly modern medicine is a thing to behold.
Yeah, this was just...I mean I get that they wanted to bring him to the present time, but using the Captain America method seemed a little silly, especially when the monster is supposed to be immortal. It would have been simple to run a few issues where each tells a story decades apart until we reach the present.

  Not much of a story, but it's good to finally have the monster in present day. I love how his journey to the "present" mirrors Captain America's. It makes me wonder if the super soldier serum isn't partially based on some of Victor Frankenstein's work.

  Exactly how many times can one monster fall into the ocean and be frozen, and also be abducted by mad scientists?

  I did think it interesting to bring the monster to the present time leaving the unfinished thread concerning the maid and the baby. It did seem like the last arc was meant to finish business in the past so they could bring the monster to the present. At least some of the editorial decisions here keep this title interesting, even if it uses a lot of elements we've seen a few times before.

2 stars. Marvel's slogan at this time should be "The House of Ideas That We Re-Use Over and Over Because We Can!"

  I really liked page 9 where it showed the passing of time as a series of wars. Reminiscent of the beginning of the first Wolverine movie.

  The only part of this that looked interesting was the bit where the actual story is in a different book!

  This seems to be only to get Adam into the modern era.

Issue's closed. Monster on the cover should have told ya.

Two Stars
