yet another boring unnecessary filler issue. 4 issues into this arc and King still is trying to build tension which was already there from the end of part 2. This entire issue was to tell us that Bane was angry because he gave up venom and was trying to live a peaceful life... yea we all have been reading this title we know what has lead up to this. No need to take an entire issue to explain somet more

I'm really liking this series... This book alone... Great tilda intro. Barton is a little more silly than he should be. The prospects this series could lead to are inspiring. I'd like to think the ultimates are on one side of the spectrum with this series on the other. And it'd be awesome if they kind of came together in the end. But I digress, this was a good book

Pretty awesome start. The characters are a little too nonchalant. And the book almost has no suspense. But it's definitely intriguing. The artwork isn't my favorite, but it's cool. I liked it a lot. Though as I write this I keep leveling off my rating to a more accurate score

Pretty good issue. Finally! The series had a major lull there. What I don't get though is this is a pretty big issue. It develops the team and the characters. It has evil Cap. And it has a very important scene with kobik that may explain a lot of what's going on with Cap. So why have such shitty artistry?!
