    There is plenty of action and although new readers may be a bit confused by some some of the character origins and skill-sets, writer Tom Taylor does a great job of providing you with the basics of their powers and abilities. Artist Steve Pugh does an amazing job with the pencils and makes a scene with Gorilla-Man and Woo flying through the sky with jet-packs strapped to their backs just as cool as it sounds. There's also a fun and clever reveal when Zemo unleashes his army of S.H.I.E.L.D. special agents that had me nodding in approval. Overall, this is a book that needs to be read. Secret Wars isn't over yet and as this issue proves, there's plenty of great stories still waiting to be told on Battleworld! Read Full Review

    I've been missing the Agents of Atlas, they are such an interesting team but they don't have a large enough fanbase to sell ongoing issues, unfortunately. At least Marvel threw me a bone on this one, a one-shot based in Battleworld where anything can happen since the events will be reset later anyways. I enjoyed the swashbuckling fun of the writing and the art looks excellent. The only things that bugged me were Baron Zemo's bulging tree-trunk legs, what was up with those?
