The end is nigh. As the world falls apart around our heroes, will they run away? Freeze up? Lose their minds? Or will they stand their ground and remain strong to the end? (And, yes, that's CLOUD 9's new costume! Pretty spiff, right?)
On the other side of the creative team, I just can't say enough good things about Mike Norton's art. Everything thing about this miniseries felt big and worthy to be a part of Marvel's big Fear Itself story. The art takes a story of C, D, and even E-List characters and makes it look like they ARE the Avengers out there to save the whole damn world. I've made this reference before in the latest review of Fear Itself, but it bears repeating… The main series seems like Marvel's first real stab and giving a major story with serious consequences to their fans that feels on the level of DC's classic Crisis on Infinite Earths. Norton's art has that same appeal as those big stories of the past and I, for one, appreciate it! Read Full Review
Youth in Revolt would have been a five-bullet book if not for the aftershocks of last issue's penis-measuring. The battle between Hardball and Gravity created the earthquake leveling Vegas, already fragile due to Juggernaut's hammer assault. This issue is about fixing the damage that the young heroes caused and about how their temper tantrum endangers the lives of their fellow heroes and the innocent. What's unfortunate is that, the current issue accents how much of the means were unnecessary to result in the ends. Read Full Review
The story may not have much impact on Fear Itself at this point, and in fact could just as easily be taking place in the midst of half a dozen different Marvel events, but it continues to do a fine job of shining a spotlight on these young heroes. Read Full Review
