FATHOM 5 launches an all-out terrorist assault on the city! With SONGBIRD in the hospital and MACH IV without an armor (or is an OLD one available?), what will ATLAS do? Who can save the day? Would you believe...HYDRA? And while all this hits the fans, will ATLAS keep his cool? Will RADIOACTIVE MAN blow his top? And will the other T-Bolts spring into action...or sit in a Brooklyn bar and watch Manhattan sink into the river on CNN?

    This is much more like it. A crappy issue for Wolverine lovers, but for the rest? Rejoice. Read Full Review

    Tom Grummett is a fine artist, and I'm delighted to see he looks to be this title's regular artist as he's proven to be a wonderful team book artist. He's also quite good at delivering the big impact visuals, from the ever so impressive double-page spread that brings readers into the action, to the equally impressive one page shot later in this issue of the Beetle armor back in action. There's also a number of cool visuals from Atlas's exit from the hospital, to his slightly disturbing efforts later in the issue, as he punches through the sea monster. The only quibble I would make about the art is that there's a scene where Abe is trying to get the Radioactive Man to stand down, and his energy gauntlet doesn't show any sign of it building up for an energy pulse, which robbed the scene of a great deal of its visual impact. I did enjoy the return of the Beetle armor though, but the old school fan in me did miss the suction cup fingers. Read Full Review
