    This is a good series. Enjoyable, entertaining, flush with potential and quite simply cool. Marvel had better make absolutely certain there is a future iteration of this team. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Sep 17, 2011

    There aren't many thing that I would consider problems with this issue, but having missed some of the previous 4 issues, it does take a little bit of time to get to the meat of the matter, and I spent a lot of time trying to figure out if I knew any of the other characters from the Council of Evil after Zemo was identified by name. Still, any concerns along those lines are short-lived, and the battle sequence (especially the characters quips after the defeat of the General) are worth the price of admission... It's also worth noting that this book is a $2.99 affair, rather than Marvel's seemingly preferred $3.99 price point, which helps in the decision to pick up a random new miniseries with characters one has never heard of. Mystery Men #5 caps off the series nicely, using Marvel's retro-history to great effect and earning a very impressive 4 out of 5 stars overall. A sequel for this would be completely welcome...

    It didn't end on a bang, but Liss and Zircher have created something truly special within a comic book universe that often feels same-old, same-old. Here's hoping readers/consumers agree and it leads to some more adventures with this group of heroes. Read Full Review
