I mean we all know there are certain people in Hydra who are always going to be tools and the ending the way it turned out was not a real surprise. I mean I am really surprised that New Tian is ran by a certain character. I think that was the biggest twist in the whole book. And I'm also really super glad to see a return of some super old characters such as Sunspot, Marrow, BoomBoom and Strong Guy more

Great kick off issue with some really solid art. Charles Soule shows us some scenes that we were never able to witness in the films. I always enjoy seeing lots of Palpatine in these comics and this may be the most attention he gets. Vader's trial to truly become a Sith lord looks like it could be one of the best Star Wars comics so far.

Back to Basics. We need this in the X-Men. Seeing a school, students, teenager problems, people trying to kill them. Not much happened, maybe no the greatest story, yet it is in the right place.
