Action from start to finish, which works because the characters are interesting. Good use of Hulk, too. Plus, hints of Valkyrie storyline... 7/10

  Not loving Sal Buscema's art. Everyone has a similar scowl on their face, especially during the fight scenes.

  I'm starting to get pretty good at looking at a comic's rating score and telling rather gunslinger gave it 1 or 5 stars :(

  @Redsvetz, what always bothers me about Sal Buscema is his trademark "spit trails" inside of people's mouths. See the 2nd to the last panel, where it looks like Thunderball is rabid, or the last panel on page 30 where Piledriver looks like he has been eating saltwater taffy. Why did Sal Buscema draw mouths that way? It's just weird looking.

  Wrecking Crew is super lame. Curious about that missing item though.

  Two plot setups? The one with Valkyrie seems interesting and should play out over the next 4-5 issues...while the capsules have a bigger impact on the current story. Time to read on.

  I love Sal Buscema's later art a lot more. Specifically his run on Spectacular Spider-Man.

  Poor Hulk, he tries his best to help out and he ends up screwing everything up. At least he got to smash some heads in.
Wonder what was supposed to be inside the container at the end? Empty things shaped like eggs are never a good thing
