An Agatha Harkness/Scarlet Witch story. Set-up is interesting. Resolution is kinda ordinary. Some very interesting developments for Vision, Mantis and Swordsman occupy the rest of the issue. 5/10

  This was a really neatly told story. Can't wait to see where it all goes.

  Very interesting prologue. Scarlet Witch is beginning to become more powerful and now Kang has returned. Let's see where this all goes.

  Very nicely done. Loving the Kang back story.

  I really enjoyed this one. I am excited for the Scarlet Witch to not be such a wimp. I really like Mantis, but I stone cold to Swordsman and she is trying to pick up Vision. Also, Agatha said cock.

  Hopefully this love triangle ends soon. Other than that, this story was solid, and I'm looking forward to what Harkness will do with the Witch.

  So we all noticed that the Fantastic Four left Alicia in Attilan, right? Like...they straight up forgot their blind friend on the other side of the world!
Oh Swordie, please don't go back to your bad guy ways over that icy chick! You're so interesting as an Avenger, and she is such a flake. At least Vision put her in her place.

  I love the focus on Wanda, though I do wish her added power wasn't just "4 hexes instead of 3!" Englehart seems to write a fair number of issues where the bad guy sucks but it's a fun story anyway.

  This has really picked up. I enjoyed this issue. I haven't been too keen on Engle hart so far, but he's starting to grow in me!

  I'm not really a Swordsman fan, but that was pretty cold what Mantis did to him. I also couldn't believe she used that "woe is me" bit to make a pass at the Vision. I liked her earlier appearances but she's really starting to fly off the deep end.

I also wasn't very impressed with the Scarlet Witch-Necrodamus scrap. The old "I faked being beaten just to see what you can do" thing is pretty tired. Usually, Steve Englehart tells a pretty good story, and he laid everything out pretty well here, but the ideas he used weren't all that fresh. Still, he's one of the better authors Marvel has during this time.

3 stars. So, didn't the other Avengers wonder about all that lightning afterwards, even after Agatha dealt with it? I wouldn't think they were that dismissive about it.

  Whatever Mantis' true backstory is, she definitely didn't learn any tact or delicacy along the way. That was pretty brutal.
