Issue Review
 
RikerDonegal
   August 10, 2017
Slight improvement over previous issue.

It's a better story, for a start. A hero whose arm has been stolen? Different.

The weaknesses of the series are still here, in abundance, but there are elements here to enjoy.

Part of the charm of Marvel comics is the hyperbole. It’s cute. And it helps that the vast majority of stories and characters are good. However, when the text proclaims ‘the most fascinating female you’ll ever meet’ on a villain as generic and forgettable as this, it does nothing but annoy the reader.

6/10

  This is one of the worst issues in the order, especially relative to the time period in which it was published.
