Issue Review
   October 20, 2013
A fun romp. Inconsequential, inoffensive. A baddie is unleashed, and our heroes battle him to a standstill. It looks good, moves fast and, while it is pretty much forgettable, it is a fun read. 6/10

  These stories are as lame as MTU, but for some reason theyre not quite as annoying.
I swear that's another masturbation joke on page 2.

  Wilson and Colletta drew some fine pictures, like Prester John enjoying the good life and, on a double splash, the heroes charging together. And I'm usually a fan of the mythical/historical appearing in the Marvel Universe, so no surprise I enjoyed this tale.

  Masturbation jokes? lol the callouses he was talking about were on his butt! In all seriousness though, I liked this issue, as Ben had some pretty good one liners, but damn, how many times is Prester John going to just happen onto an object giving him nearly God like powers?

  That was just gibberish, with action. However, it was Thing action, so it gets at least 2 stars anyway.

  I was hoping that this was an infinity gem.

  Lame. Just like Team-Up, I am not a fan of Two-In-One so far.

  You know things are going to take a turn for the silly when Dum Dum Dugan shows up with the bucket on his head.
I feel the need to question our heroes' tactic of yelling at the baddie just as they're about to attack them from behind.
"If this stuff is what the Arabs are so hot over -- they can keep it!" Said no western nation ever.
What the hell kind of aircraft were they testing that the fact it just disappeared in a puff of smoke didn't immediately make them think catastrophic explosion?!

  So a Caucasian arrives at a Bedouin camp in the 1960s/70s and they are so primitive that they have simple hearts and honour this him as a God, even though he's not done anything except turn up tired and ill? Then they hand him a gem, which has been handed down, (without incident) from father to son, for generations and then as soon as he touches it, he goes mad and kills them all. The heroes response to all this is "Let's go for a burger." Discuss.

  The plot was messy, but I appreciate the dives into random mythologies.

  This was indeed a mess, though not as bad as last issue's suck-fest. But was that one of the Infinity Gems? Power or Reality maybe? Interesting possibility....

You know, I could see Marvel possibly trying out Prestor John in his own short series, perhaps as an Earth-bound Watcher type. Who knows, it might've worked.

2 stars. Two-in-One over the past couple of issues has sunk to Marvel Team-Up levels of drek. Never thought I'd be saying that after the great start it got.
