    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Mar 30, 2021

    A cast featuring most of the Black heroes of the Marvel Universe facing an endless onslaught of alien invaders, makes for a fascinating all-action issue worth it's price tag. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Mar 25, 2021

    Acuna delivers some impressive visuals throughout this issue. The characters look fantastic and the dramatic style of the art enhances those characters while muting the backgrounds. Read Full Review

    While Coates hasn't clearly threaded the needle connecting race and nationality in this coalition, it's easy enough to simply enjoy the spectacle of this battle and the incredible collection of characters on display. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Mar 26, 2021

    Although this issue is light on exposition and plot, just about every page is action-packed, refusing to let its foot off of the gas. Coates is clearly leaving it all on the field in his final chapter in this saga. The book is clearly worth its weight in vibranium. Read Full Review

    For every time I ever shit on Coates' long-winded Panther run, here was a much needed reprieve - featuring damn near every Afro-Marvel superhero going it at it with what appeared to be an army ruled by A.I.
    The direct influence from Miller's Ronin are unmistakable. The upcoming conclusion looks as bright as the Storm & Spectrum team up, I'll probably never get to see again.
    And the back up story was touching, especially in a world where A.I. seems to be more empathetic than a humanity that is just growing more and more selfsih. Those Def Jam Forward stories need their own reprinted collection.
    Coates on Cap has always been more of my cup of tea, but I have to give the man credit : he can write disseratations in comic boo more

    It's finally coming together as a story although Coates style is hard to follow especially for all these heroes showing up and all of them being specifically Black heroes with no other heroes of different ethnicities partaking in saving Wakanda? This doesn't make sense for T'Challa to only bring in black heroes when he knows he is going up against an Intergalactic Empire. Maybe I missed something. Daniel Acuna is a Maestro as usual making all of the scenes look FANTASTIC!!!

    The big battle begins and Prodigy gets a spotlight turn as the heroes' lead strategist. The art is great, but the visual storytelling is less than perfect. And it would need to be perfect to compensate for the feeble, cutesy "combat codeword" thing the script is doing for the majority of the issue. There's satisfying but not surprising action throughout and not much character work at all. The result is a good action comic that is by no means a must-read.

    This was pretty good as an action comic. Don't worry about why all these heroes are here, specifically. I mean, it fits the theme, sure. But for instance, why is Miles Morales in Wakanda? I don't think there is a reason for it that you could find. But it fits the theme, and that's what matters most to Ta Nehisi Coates as a writer. Themes are important, but they'd hit a lot harder if the story mechanics behind them worked without flaw. The backup is kinda dumb.

    This was very quick, which I appreciated.

    I can pretty much summarize this issue as a lot of action poses from a variety of iconic black characters in Marvel's roster. I realize that we're in the action-packed climax issue, but I need a little more narrative beyond brief captions of "[D&D reference]: engaged."
