The one area Reed does succeed in this issue is with the Spider-Man/Ms. Marvel relationship. These two play extremely well off one another, and Ms. Marvel has been the main book to showcase that dynamic. The duo have a charming scene together where they share a New York lunch on a rooftop. These pages proved the most enjoyable of the issue by far. It's a shame Reed had to ruin them with an extremely hokey ending. I give him credit for trying to close the series on the same note he began it, but I'm truly hard-pressed to imagine a more cornball way of sending off Carol. Worse, the happy ending doesn't feel deserved. The issue and the series alike reach a rather anticlimactic finish. Carol has always had a spotty record when it comes to supporting her own books, and I suppose fans should be grateful this book lasted as long as it did. Still, for a heroine that set out to seize the world and hold it, her reach far exceeded her grasp. Read Full Review
