Good story, with a bit of depth behind the action. And Namor. Always a good thing. Plus, we've got the Serpent Squad and the Serpent Crown in the thick of the action. Again, these are things I always enjoy in a story. Plus, Steve Rogers is kinda awesome in the closing battle. 7/10

  This cover is about as misleading as it gets. Good issue though. Enjoyed the dialogue especially, it actually made me chuckle in a couple of places.

  Well not one of my favorites still I gave it an extra star for Namors aloofness to Caps new threads.

  Englehart is just about the most inconsistent writer in the order so far. Sometimes he turns in a gem, and other times he turns in a stinker like this.

  Sadly, I prefer Nomad to CA right now.

  Sometimes I forget that Cap and Subby have been friends for decades, it was nice that on his rebirth into Nomad they brought him back. That being said, why the hell would Steve tell Namor to stay out of the fight? And why would Namor listen?! Prove yourself against some street gang or something man, when the world is at risk, take all the help you can get!
Why would you employ a private security force that dress like pickles?

  Alt costume Cap and Namor have the same color scheme. Reminds me of Dr. Strange's alt costume from way back.

  Namor reunites with Steve Rogers to stop a mad plot by Krang and the Serpent Squad.

  One hell of a misleading cover.

  I think this arc is pretty good so far, and this issue continued the momentum. Not really feeling the threat level from this new Serpent Squad though, and Krang's presence here seemed token at best, other than using the Serpent Crown.

I did enjoy Steve/Nomad punching that Roxxon guy's lights out, even though he shouldn't have let his comments affect him that way. Seems like it's easy to mess with Steve nowadays; not a good disposition for a super-hero to have.

3 stars. Also good to see Namor again; I always enjoy seeing these two team up.
