Issue Review
 
RikerDonegal
   October 25, 2015
There are some interesting ideas here.
The execution isn't perfect, however.
Our hero must deal with an OTT obnoxious character, for instance, in scenes that are just plain silly.
And, while the villain is interesting, there's a huge coincidence required to have him meet CM on the street at the start of the issue.
Still, flawed or not, this is better than most issues.
6/10

  Debut for Pat Broderick on art. Good to see some quality variety from the typical Marvel style.

  First for a superhero to unmask in public?

  When are we to be rid of Rick Jones? THEY ARE SEPARATED! Cut the cord already.

  Never hire a hero whose identity is public. That's just asking for trouble.
