Issue Review

No action, lots of talk (and story) with a little mystery underlying the events. It's feels a bit gimmicky, with a lot of guests and the government dictating a new team line-up but it fits in with established ongoing problems they've been having with Henry Gyrich. Don't like the new official line-up, however. 8/10

  -The last page is a little "cringe worthy," but other than that this is a good issue. Byrne really beginning to look like the Byrne I loved in the 80s.

  There's a lot of good stuff in this issue. Nice work by Byrne, especially on that creative splash page. Michelinie's script is really strong too. I enjoyed Beast and Wonder Man talking about why people are so into superheroes, but I thought Hawkeye's "Is a bear Catholic?" stole the show. When's the last time we got such a fun line, that's not just the same old style of telling comic book stories?
