The Ringmaster's reality-altering ring is put to the test as Daredevil and Luke Cage join the epic battle. Will unbreakable skin and enhanced senses be enough to take down the newly superpowered Ringmaster? What exactly happened to Spider-Man and Moon Knight? All these answers and more! What more? How about an update on Titannus' plot to take over Japan!

    I loved the cover to this issue, as it's such a mundane image that one can't help but be intrigued about the story inside. I also have to give the interior art full marks for the success of the Titannus plot, as the opening and closing images of the issue amazingly sell the destruction that he's caused. As for the rest of the issue, the art conveys well the new gimmicks of Stilt-Man, as while the character has always been a more of a joke than a real threat (though he did hand She-Hulk her head), Scott Kolins does a nice job with the new additions so that that battle actually has a real sense of danger about it, with the scene where Daredevil has to make a desperate dive to keep the poor guy from falling to his death being the highlight of the battle. The art also does some nice work on the second story as the Sleepwalker's power gets a good showing during his brief encounter with the Black Cat, and the scene where he's pulled back into his host is nicely presented by the art.

    The best thing about this issue of Marvel Team-Up is once again Scott Kolins who illustrates both parts; normally when a modern day comic book is split it means a second and usually inferior artist handles the second part. Kolins makes everybody look on-model and keeps the proceedings action packed. His New York back-drop impresses and gives the whole book a sense of place, and this issue also offers a better sampling of his "good girl" work. Read Full Review
