Issue Review

A long fight, with lots of heroes and villains in the mix. Ends with an unconvincing revelation, to answer a couple of mysteries established in part one. Itís fine, but it probably would have worked better with the same characters from part one. Sometimes more isnít better. 5/10

  It's like a tragic version of O Henry's "Gift of the Magi".

  Still lame. I dislike it when superheroes go up against regular people. All it took was a couple smacks to the head and Spider-Man and the Human Torch were out for the count. Ridiculous. Also, Spider-Man said dick.

  That was extremely weird that Torch just took off rather than trying to catch the guys that beat and imprisoned him. Seemed very out of character.
The Sons looked very out of place in this colored book. Not sure if their costumes had a weird color scheme or that I'm just not used to seeing them in color.
And of course, the two masked people meant absolutely nothing to us. Just reeked of convenience.

  I 100% agree, what was Johnny thinking? "Look I know these guys just tried to murder me, but this is a 2 group team up book not a three so I'm gonna head off to try and get some space girl strange, later chumps!"

  Johnny Storm: "Well guys, this is stupid and I'm bored. You've got these Kung Fu guys now Spidey so I figure you can handle Sandman without an issue. Later!"

Speaking of Sandman, so he can be knocked out by punches now?

  podgejeff - It wasn't just a punch, it was FIVE punches. Makes more sense now, right?
