    In these five issues of her miniseries, we have seen Susan Richards do things with her powers that weve never seen her do before, and very clever things at that. Weve also seen her do something that a heroine of her kind and her stature is not meant to do. All things considered, it was a good story, well put together. But it also serves as a reminder of who The Fantastic Four really are and what their real place is in the scheme of thingsa place much loftier than the world of espionage. Read Full Review

    If nothing else, this miniseries serves as a strong argument for Invisible Woman being capable of carrying a solo ongoing. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Nov 27, 2019

    Invisible Woman-as-spy seems to have been a nice enough experiment that could prove to be that much more interesting in future outings now that Waid has established the basic premise of the series. The balance between a personality of a galaxy-class superhero interacting with strange alien life forms by day and international espionage by night seems like a fun one to explore. It hasnt been the thrust of Waids series, but now that the Invisible spy has come into full view, there is real potential for further fusion if Marvel wants to explore it in greater detail. Sue Storm is a fascinating character for Marvel-style espionage stories. Given the right fusion of spy and superhero, the characters own series could easily have the right appeal for an ongoing series.  Read Full Review

    INVISIBLE WOMAN #5, much like the series as a whole, has its peaks and valleys. It begins on the high of the Maria Hill cameo, only to drop when she opens her mouth. It goes back up with Sues powers, only to descend again with Tintreachs over-the-top insanity. Mattia De Iulis art may be a peak, but the final issue of Mark Waids spy story feels like a valley.
