The events are fine, by themselves, but the pompous narration ruins any possible enjoyment. The title of the story is really clever, however. 2/10

  So far Morbius is the worst character in the Order to me :/

  Look at those gravestones. Does that mean Jonas Hex is 616 ;-)

  No Howie, you're not remembering your Greek mythology very well (I'll ignore the fact that they originated in Egyptian mythology) as those creatures had neither the head and wings of an eagle, nor the body of a lion.
To make myself feel better about this run I am choosing to believe that they did this to get rid of all the bad ideas they had for a villain named Apocalypse.
@ThunderZtorm No, the worst so far has to be It! Morbius isn't that bad, they just haven't had good stories for him yet. The only redeeming feature from the last few issues is that they turned him away from simply being a bad guy.
@Daredevil Yes, Jonah is 616, probably got taken out by the Rawhide Kid, Kid Colt, or the Six Gun Kid. (Sure were a lot of kids with guns back then)

  This may well be the worst comic I have read in the order thus far. Reading this was excruciating!

  I still like the magazine format for a story like this, but that and the artwork is about all that it has going for it. Morbius just doesn't seem like he's making any real impact here. I think it's just they didn't know what to do with him here.

2 stars. I wonder if readers at the time were just as burned out from the horror genre as we're getting.

  The best part about reading this one is that I never have to read it again.
