    Overall, this is the most important comic book of the week. This comic is a must have for Spider-Man fans as well as a good place for new readers to say what is going on with Avengers: Initiative? and pick up the first 6 issues for a great story. I really enjoyed this issue, the major plot developments in here are crucial to Spider-Man, the direction of One More Day and the Marvel U as a whole. Read Full Review

    That's not to say this isn't enjoyable, because it is, in its way. But like last issue, I struggle to see the point, and I get an overwhelming sense that this book needs to be corralled and streamlined because it's dangerously overloaded. At the very least, it makes an argument for the existence of a third Avengers title, but I don't agree with the popular opinion that it's the best of the lot. Still, there's definitely promise.

I personally don't care as I liked most of the Clone Saga (most, not all), but I hope Slott and Marvel have this planned out very carefully. I can see this ending badly. Read Full Review
