    Codename: Action #4 ends with a late reveal and a cliffhanger that suggests Dr. Thorpe has his own agenda outside the plans of Hexagon as the mini-series moves into its final two issues with our heroes coming face-to-face with the series' true face of evil. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    This mediocre story is kept afloat by Jonathan Lau and Ivan Nunes's masterful interiors. The Three Stooges cameo was a nice touch, and perhaps a bit of a commentary on supervillan thugs around the world.
