Enjoyable.
The guest cast are fun.
The “identical double” story is playing as expected.
The final third is given over to a simple action-driven tale.
6/10

  The cause for Counter-Earth Reed becoming evil was weak, but otherwise I'm enjoying the concept, as he makes for a very good villain.

  So the Metalloid robot emerged from a bank vault. Was this subplot ever explained or followed up on?

  I really like both Tigra and Thundra, they are a lot of fun, and the bits between Sue and Counter-Reed are downright creepy.

  Best moment of the issue? When Reed catches a bat to eat and says "Sorry Bruce". Well played.

  "In a way it would be SHAME if this classic battle between good and evil were to END right now because the POLICE and the ARMY arrived on the scene. But one NICE thing about writing a COMIC BOOK: Namely, you can always have them arrive TOO LATE!"

  Sue was pretty blase the possibility that she slept with Reed's double.
