    A pretty entertaining issue that acts to leave me even more disenchanted by the idea that Gail Simone is going to be leave the book in a couple months, as she has remade this book into one of more amusing titles on the stands. What's more she has also brought an engaging story to the table, as the situation with Agent X does more than simply provide a loose framework for the jokes to hang from, as the characters have well defined personalities, and the threats nicely hold my attention. This issue also offers up a wonderful use of the character Arcade, as while his arrival is a bit fortuitous, Gail Simone does wonders with the character, and I'd love to see her get another crack at Arcade. The issue also brings the Taskmaster back into the book, and it sets up a pretty impressive cliffhanger scenario, as we see this book's cast is about to go to war with an entire army of third-rate baddies. The running gag of the mute Agent X's notes also made for a fun twist on the character's regular Read Full Review
