Itís a fun comic. At its core is a hero vs hero battle. Normally I hate those. But this is a self-aware one, almost ironic, and it serves a purpose within a larger picture. The Red Guardian story is the best here. 8/10

  -I think Fish Face has had enough experience with Jade Jaws that he wouldn't just marginalize him like that.
-I'm getting a "Beneath the Planet of the Apes" (or maybe Led Zeppelin!) vibe from The Presence and his crazy situation.
-Sure Kraft has read FF#6, as he has Namor using "electric eel" abilities, but he needs to do some more research--SM and The Hulk are NOT equals in strength. C'mon!

  Having Nighthawk as the leader and pushing Val to the background isn't an enjoyable turn so far.

  I love this comic. It was one of the first comics I owned, and for years it was an integral part of my small Marvel comic collection. I read it over and over. It fascinated me. Itís a strange experience reading it out of context, and it was a very bad choice for inclusion in the Marvel UK Hulk Annual 1979, which is where I read it all those years ago. In context, it makes a lot more sense!! I now know who all the characters are, what the ongoing stories are, and I get the references to past events.

  The only good part is the development going on. The next couple of issues should be good...should be.

  I didn't like how Namor was a gigantic douche, then once Hulk got mad, suddenly "wished to avoid trouble".

  Kyle has no spare jet packs?

There was some good stuff here but it's stuffed in around another pointless and boring fight.
