Issue Review

   January 9, 2015
Very enjoyable romp, which finds our large cast of heroes adding one to their number before discovering a vast spaceship and an adventure within. Nothing that happens is particularly surprising but it plays out at fast pace and gets the reader involved. 8/10

  I really wish they would let Sif be badass for a change.

  I know it was how it was back then, but I hate it when women are constantly being portrayed as weak when they should be badass. Damsel in distress Sif should not be.

  -1* for how ineffectual they made Sif.

  This lost a star for making Sif useless.

  Why would Thor let a wall stop him from going after Sif? He just needed to channel his inner Hulk.
