This issue was really fun to look at, but the story just fell flat. The leader of S.T.R.I.K.E. and his turn for this arc just felt forced, and the brother/sister psychic bond can only really play out with the two of them confronting one another face to face. So that predictability took me out of this story. The artwork is really, really nice- Dum-dum looked SUPER grizzled and terminator-esque in this issue, and I dug that a lot. Plus the addition of some classic Marvel Monsters at the end of the issue was nice (spoilers) seeing Infernal Man-Thing was a nice touch, and one that will get me back to read this story next month. I don’t know how this book will go after this arc, but I am sure that if a character like Sphinx can be such a formidable foe, that literally ANYONE could be amped up enough to take on these commandos- paste pot pete revival, anyone?
