Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl and their friends are trapped in a world they did not create. And the one person who could free trapped herself. Someone has been pulling Ember Quade's strings, and even this burgeoning super villain knows when the game's gone too far. But the last save point is long past - and there's one final boss ahead. It's now or never: The heroes must rise.

    Simply put, Marvel Rising: Omega ends the series on a high note, and never forgets to have a blast. Read Full Review

    What really disappoints, however, is that I've already seen READY PLAYER ONE, and too many elements -- including the denouement -- are lifted directly from that plot. It's been years since I've seen work by Devin Grayson -- nearly 15 years, actually -- but even so her previous body of work prepared me to have expected more. Read Full Review

    Squirrel Girl leads her pals through a desultory defeat of Arcade and Ember plops a trite "happily ever after" on the end. The art delivers a lot of weak moments, including many faces with glitchy emotions, a big pet peeve of mine. The script is no pillar of strength, either, running short of oomph just when the finale could use a little extra cleverness. All of the "don't work too hard, it's just a cartoon tie-in" conservation of effort in the Marvel Rising series seems concentrated here at the end. This gives the story a conclusion, but the previous chapters deserve a better one than this.
