Not everybody is PC. Some people are still stuck in this archaic mindset that your color makes you superior over others. And it's more than you think. I really hope that Wilson pulls this story off right. It could mean a lot in getting people to see that everyone deserves fair treatment.

I have to say that this has one of the most generic covers ever, at least when paired with the story inside. Ms Marvel goes up against a former team-mate when she was working for Captain Marvel during the second super hero Civil War who has come back now working for Hydra. This is one of the better ways to tie-in to the Secret Empire without actually being tied in so I have to give the writer majo more

"Black Bolt" #2 doesn't answer a whole lot of questions, but I like the supporting cast, and Christian Ward's art is absolutely out of this world. I'm a Black Bolt fan, so it's nice to get a dose of the character without being subjected to a series of insipid Nuhuman characters.

Nice Dinner sequence! Still enjoying this event and haven't read anything like this in years. I'm not in a hurry to get it over with. Let Spencer take his time and tell the threads he wants to focus on and we will get the others addressed and answered in the next 6 issues. Inconsistent art but Yu and Rod Reis did well. Where the heck are the Cap Trio? The vanishing point?

If you could mash up Roseanne with like Melrose Place you have the fourth issue of Secret Empire. It touches on everything. The weird dream sequence, check. Black Widow and the crybabies, check. Nasmo and the Atlantians, check. But the main story was with Ultron's dinner party. Those monologues were epic!!! I'm glad someone brought up the issue!!!! And that mini fight scene beforehand.

This issue builds up the mystery of Gamora and the soul stone in what is visual treat. Frazer Irving's art dominates this issue, as Gamora is led to discover more questions than answers about herself. I last saw Irving's art on a recent issue of "Doctor Strange," and his style is equally suited to heavy cosmic trippiness as it was Strange's world. Kuder is great, but if we're going to get a fill-i more
