Issue Review
 
RikerDonegal
   October 25, 2016
Despite the fact that the ending to the storyline fails to work, there are many things to enjoy here.
Wonder Man and the Beast: Both characters get moments in the spotlight. Beast gets to ‘ride to the rescue’ and save his team-mates. Earlier Wonder Man got to be legitimately bad ass, going down with the Quinjet after saving Hank by throwing him out. Amusing. And cool.
Backstory: Having already detailed the convoluted backstory of the Maximoff twins, this issue spends a couple of pages doing the same for the villain: Chthon. And as a diehard Marvel fan I kinda lap up these summations of Marvel History. Maybe it’s not exactly driving the story forward, but it sure is fun to read.
Unlike...
The Ending: Fails to work because it relies on the team suddenly knowing magic and being able to accomplish something very complex (I feel).
7/10

  -This issue was quite a let down after the intriguing setup from #186. Dolls and puppets have no place in the Marvel Universe. The resolution here seemed cheap. If not for Byrne's pencils, I would've given this **

  A washed up comedian eventually finds the doll of Cthon, and goes on to have a successful career. His name: Jeff Dunham.
