I'm not sure how much worse they could make this book. The art isn't bad, so there's that. I think Marvel has decided that they are missing out on all the greatness of the Burnside sewage that DC is producing with Batgirl lately. Elektra of Burnside!

UGH!!! we have to wait another two weeks for the battle we've all been waiting for? and it won't likely be what I was hoping for (1:1 Cassandra vs Shiva)? Sigh. This has got to be the worst 9 rating of all time. Such disappointment! But seeing her slaughter those assassins by the dozen was pretty good :) I have no idea how "the twist" happens at the end. Sadly, it seems we are building up more

the art is still down a bit... not "bad" but not at all as good as some that we've seen... and he's playing back his memories again... the Eradicator is coming back we just got rid of him what? 10 issues ago maybe? are they really this lazy?

a really well done new comic. not a huge fan of the art style, but it isn't bad by any means. maybe "fitting the material." I'm very interested to see where this goes. I am a bit disappointed that we got to "the bad guy" so soon. I think I could have dealt with a few issues of just seeing the stories that different worlds had, building up to the discovery that there is some big-bad out there.

I'm really enjoying this book. I hate the whole disgusting idea of "evil Captain America" and I've been able to avoid it entirely until this week. Now it has infected a book that I like, dragging it down into the gutter. I'm holding out a slim hope that the Danielle Cage Captain America from the future that was in this book recently will come in and help save the day. I'd LOVE that :)
