Some nice Valkyrie scenes, leading to a battle where lots of stuff happens and lots of stuff is revealed about her origin. Trying to fit it together in my head... My head hurts :) But it was fun. 7/10

  Nighthawk is about as useful as tits on a boar.

  Funny, my thoughts exactly. It's like Sesame Street (The Hulk, Dr. Strange, Valkyrie, Silver Surfer, Submariner and... Nighthawk) "One of these things is not like the others"

  I knew Nighthawk was a character... but I always placed him as one of those characters you hear about but rarely see... I was wrong, I have seen more then enough of him right now and dont want to see more... he is beyond useless...

  Poor Val, after all this, she still has no idea who she is.

  I like to look at Nighthawk as the everyman, viewer's eye view sort of character. Kind of like Han Solo, but dressed as a giant bird.

  Nighthawk was actually kickinga**in this issue, and he found the hidden entrance to the chamber. Plus he gave the Defenders a headquarters, so lay off guy, sheesh!
So Valkyrie learned that she was a gullible cultist why was basically sacrificed by her husband and mother. Mission accomplished. Yay?
And again...why was the Destiny force playing the harmonica that holds that old witch's life essence, and for some reason was able to destroy the world, at a New York City subway stop?

  This was the best issue in the order in a long, long time. Finally I actually care about what happens.
