Issue Review
   October 9, 2017
Damn good story. Plus a lot of action.

What Does the Villain Want? He wants out of prison, he wants revenge on Thor, and he wants fast food! In this instance the revenge motive makes perfect sense. And the sight of four super-villains cramming into a booth for fast food is hilarious and wonderful. It also makes sense. And does wonders to bring realism to the Marvel Universe.

The Coincidence Factor: An old lady that Thor meets in scene one appears again in the last scene. But this, too, works perfectly. That second meeting is the whole point of this (tragic) story.

  I've come to expect a bit more from Macchio and Gruenwald.

  I really liked what did they did in Ultimate and had the Wrecking Crew go legit as a post-battle clean-up crew. Not sure if it happens in 616 also, but it is definitely necessary service!

  Also, Thunderball thought about so much of The Wreckers history when his cell wall was busted in...it's a prison break guy, get your head in the game and stop daydreaming!

  Poor old lady, death by cabbie would have been better than the wrecking crew. That's just embarrassing...

  Why does Thor need to stau at a hotel? Can't he crash at Tony's house for a few nights?

  I like Thor's pep talk at the beginning.
