Elektra may be the world's greatest assassin, but do sheer numbers win out when every other killer in the western hemisphere is after the price on her head? And who's sending them?

    The rest of the issue is slightly less interesting: the Skrull subplot doesn't seem to be going anywhere (although there is a hint that Wells might pin down the moment of Elektra's replacement by a Skrull with a little more accuracy than Bendis did), and the final page guest-appearance feels a little gratuitous and unnecessary. However, aside from these small weaknesses, this is a very enjoyable issue of a story that has succeeded in telling an Elektra story that feels true to Frank Miller's original conception of the character, whilst also incorporating the messy history of recent months in a relatively streamlined and unobtrusive manner.

    Before we turn our attention to next months adamantium laced blood fest, lets not forget about Norman Osbornes role in this series, and in Dark Reign overall. Doesnt he just give you the creeps? Ill take a Skrull invasion any day over this guy. Osborne is too realistic a danger and potentiality in real life, to be a simple super villain. Thats why hes so scary. Hes an all too real caricature of an all too real possibility. Read Full Review
