Did the critics actually read this piece of trash, or did they randomly decide that a score of 8 is good? Riri, as a character, is trash. If you don't get that from this issue, you're not paying attention.

Riri Williams strikes out on her own as her idealism is pushed to the test by a world she does not understand yet. How far is Riri willing to go to do what she knows is right?

I read the comic 2 more times and I just realized that it was actually worst than my previous score that I put so yeah it's bad in fact I don't know why Iceman even has his own series. The dialogue and the art was horrible. Not only that if Bobby really is Omega level why was he struggling with a guy with a hockey mask? Also Iceman's only trait is that he's gay. That's it! Which is boring and one more

I get that if he talks all hell breaks loose but the author treats his reader like an idiot. I do not need dialogue boxes on almost every panel telling me what Black Bolt is thinking or what he is doing. He should just let the artist tell the story when dialogue boxes are not needed even though the art s bad.

In my opinion, the more we read these stories, the more obvious it is that there is no sense in Jean Grey being team leader; unlike Storm, she and Kitty Pride are not suited for leadership positions, and the whole thing seems to me VERY forced. They put Cyclops, the true natural leader aside just to show that "teenager girls are in charge" now.

Riri WIlliams in this issue is further proof that she is a joke and further solidifies my stance that I will never buy a Riri WIlliams comic and will only stick to DOctor Doom. I'm really looking forward on the next issue because of the cliffhanger at the end. Also much of the issue was mostly just talking and I was kind of hoping for some action but in the end I guess all the talking was necesary more

It started off well but ended up being very average. The last words I said to myself after reading the comic was "what the fuck was that?" Also worth mentioning is the penciling is well done but the color palette was awful at times. Maybe I expected too much but hopefully the next issue is good or I might drop this.
