    Yes, there's not really any good reason for this story to exist other than to sell a few comics off the back of the latest big event in the Marvel Universe, and yes, some elements of the story seem contrived and ill-fitting (such as the Winter Soldier's early guest-appearance, or Daredevil being invited on Wolverine's mission instead of a telepathic X-Man who could have served a similar function more effectively), but this comic rises above those shortcomings to produce a tale which is fairly entertaining in its own right. I look forward to seeing how the series progresses, as the concentration on a different character each issue with a rotating art team promises to keep things fresh and interesting. My only real concern is whether Loeb can draw the different stories together with a coherent common focus, but we'll see how that goes. Read Full Review
