    Compared to the first two issues, this one is a noticeable step down in quality, but it is still a very solid read. The character work is fun, but it quickly takes a back seat to the confrontation between Osborn, the Dark Avengers, and the Fantastic Four, which is problematic when the art struggles to carry the action. That being said, it is very cool to see Daken's schemes in motion and the ending has me excited to see what sort of madness he is going to pull off next. Read Full Review

    If you hate Daken, just stop. He's got a lot of stories to offer, especially now that he's in a house of other psychos. His manipulative powers can take him a long way and I would certainly recommend that you stick around to watch. Read Full Review

    There is, in the end, one central flaw with this series that has yet to be addressed in its first three issues. I still don't care about Daken as a character. The appeal so far is all in the situational drama his powers create. I don't have a proper sense of who Daken is or what he wants in this book. Does he actually care about his father's legacy one way or the other? Does he have any goals at all other than screwing with his teammates? There's no emotional connection to be had here. It's actually a similar problem Way has in his Deadpool book, only more pronounced. Deadpool is zany enough that readers don't always need something deeper. Daken is not the same way. Bearing all that in mind, this arc seems to function better as a Dark Avengers story than a solo tale. Hopefully that won't always be the case, otherwise I foresee a short future for the series.
