    Given the pre-set parameters set by Civil War II, Ruth Fletcher Gage and Christos Gage have done an admirable job of creating a Carol both steadfast and sympathetic. That said, for as much as the character seems aware of the slippery slope she's currently sliding down, she still more or less ignores any sense of uncertainty in lieu of unwavering conviction.

    This issue feels like a step back in the Captain Marvel series, as it opts to be dramatic for the sake of it. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Chaston Summers Sep 30, 2017

    For all intents and purposes, this is an epilogue but fails to bring any excitement for what comes next. Or fails to bring a sense of dread for what could happen to Captain Marvel. This issue is too off balanced attempting to mix humor with depression. I usually enjoy Captain Marvel but as a new starting point this just didn't hit the mark it needed to. Hopefully with Legacy starting and the return to the old numbering system. Doing away with constant rebooted #1 issues. This issue just stays a bad blip in the grand scheme of things to come.

    Fans of Captain Marvel will continue to be depressed by whatMarvel has chosen to do with the character. In addition, we get more meetingswith board members as if that's not what we've been doing for every issue sincethis crossover started. At this point, I completely understand why so manypeople are jumping ship on this book. I look forward to when this crossoverends and I no longer have to read this book. Read Full Review
