Great issue. Actually makes last issue awesome. The art is mixed up though. It's on point at parts. Then rough and half-assed at others. Still, this series has become unbelievably solid.

This title is slipping. It's a shame this ish was just plain - and this ish had 2 potentially interesting guest stars that didn't really deliver. Kate rationalizing herself into killing dwarves is so wrong. And the cliffhanger was the same as last time only with new fam member. The only thing that made this issue notable was the significant and interesting change to Cecil (that the title character more

The art's good. That's it. Nothing is explained well. The team forms even though they don't want to or like each other (classic terrible writing: 'oooh we hate each other but we need each other too which will open up some great plot twists later and this type of drama is super original as well') The fighting is choppy, particularly near the end where everyone is standing around but supposedly figh more

Khonshu - May 5, 2017

cont'd... didnt realize we had a word limit... Highly recommend reading Captain America: Steve Rogers #1-16 (yes the whole damn thing) and Uncanny Avengers #18-22 (and I guess some recent Thunderbolts, but meh) to fully appreciate what's going on, and obviously the zero issue. A lot of time was put into setting up this event and it pays off. I could see how maybe there was even too much lead up for some people, but I wasn't reading these titles month to month so I didn't have to suffer a wait.

This is pretty good. And I hate the whole concept behind this series. Making cap evil is absolutely stupid. But, so far, this is a thousand times better than civil war. I might be persuaded to appreciate this concept. And/but it's only been 2 issues.
