A rather disappointing finish to a miniseries that I had entered with high hopes. The simple fact of the matter is that Brian David-Marshall has created a small collection of characters who don't really grab my attention. To be perfectly honest the B-Sides are a little too disenfranchised, with Jesse's short fuse in this issue making him quite unlikeable. I realize it serves the story to have him become upset when it seems that Reed is telling him that his powers are damaging the fabric of time and space, but it seemed almost too contrived that the only thing keeping Reed from telling Jesse the problem was easily resolved is the sudden appearance of a hair trigger fuse that has the young hero refusing to listen. There's also the simple fact that this issue offers up a crisis that never comes across as a convincing problem, and the quick fix resolution that's offered up only acted to convince me Brian David-Marshall didn't think much of the problem he created either.
