I'm giving this book three bullets in recognition of the fact that Hine's writing is actually very strong - he certainly has a firm grasp of Pietro's character. This issue falters solely due to editorial mandates; had there been no cause for a flimsy last-moment conflict between the Inhumans and America, and had Hine not been required to set Pietro up for imminent appearances in X-Factor and (one assumes) Civil War, it likely would have wrapped up properly, or at least more cohesively. As it stands, the final issue of Son of M collapses under the weight of its own relevance to other impending crossovers, and matters more for how it affects the Marvel Universe than for how it affects the individuals within it.
