Issue Review

One long battle.
Picks up from the previous issue and the action never lets up as various Avengers take their turn trying (unsuccessfully) to stop a particularly powerful foe.
Some telling character moments dotted here and there amid the fighting raise this above the level of generic slugfest.
8/10

  -"He brushed the Beast away like a gnat--so quickly I didn't see him move! How can he--?" $6
-That little "double fling" move by cap and the Beast is pretty twink. It'd never work.
-Wondy looks like the "out of shape, in shape guy from the 50s" on page 22.
-This issue is lotsa fun.

  This issue really has it all. Lots of tense and exciting action, lots of character development (especially for Wonder Man, who is moving up my list of favourites fast), and the Whizzer gets to be awesome by being wise not fast. Jim Shooter isn't quite Chris Claremont, but he shines in this one.

  Great story... And love how Thor comes in just as everyone is defeated... Like a certain super Saiyan we all love and adore.

  It would have been 5 stars if they hadn't kept mentioning Thor, so that it was a surprise when he showed up at the end. Would have been awesome.

  Too bad the "Blank Panther" couldn't dodge Captain America's shield Count Nefaria tossed aside. Great typo right there.

  Nice Issue.
That Wanda frame near the end where she is looking out at us is awesome.
