Even for a lethal ninja assassin who’s been to the far side of death and back, Elektra faces the fight of her life! Freed from her torment at the hands of mad Skrull scientists, and delivered straight into the grabby hands of Norman Osborn and H.A.M.M.E.R., Elektra’s been imprisoned, tortured, vivisected, and even replaced with a genetic double. But the deadliest woman in the world still managed to free herself, and now, hobbling and wounded, she struggles to clear her name for her impostor’s crimes even as she fights to stay alive! Rated T+ …$3.99

    Other than that little hiccup with Osborn's rationalizing unleashing Bullseye, there was little to complain about with this issue and I absolutely loved the opening fight sequence with the HAMMER cannonfodder. Not the deepest comic you'll ever read, but entertaining nonetheless. Read Full Review

    Overall, it appears that this issue loses some of its creative energy by being a tad too predictable, but the developments in this issue serve as a necessary bridge to what, hopefully, looks like a promising showdown. Read Full Review

    Clay Mann also brings his soft penciling style to the book. He has a way of making everything natural. The slightly muted colors of Matt Hollingsworth also help build on this look but for some reason I expected the color palette to change once we left the helicarrier. Maybe mentally I imagined fluorescent lighting inside the carrier but everything outside of it feels like it needed to be a litter brighter. Speaking of bright, the cover artist Lee Berme-Jo is simply stunning and will have everyone picking up the issue just to get a closer look. Read Full Review
