    Finally, the best part of this tie-in can be summed up in one word that should be just enough to tempt, without spoiling anything: Mjlnir. Read Full Review

    It was a great twist to see that behind the curtain of the city in which they stand prisoners, Hippotlyta's father, Ares was the real enemy. Disgraced an hiding away to enact his vengeance against the Amazons for killing his daughter. Again, motivations are what really drives this event and story. The art for this book as well might have been the best out of the whole series. Read Full Review

    As sometimes happens with crossover comics, I was expecting a letdown or complete failure to capitalize on the talent assembled for this book. What I received is quite the contrary. Bunn's story is enticing and engaging, adding layers to the adventures of the "Age of Ultron" Defenders while setting the stage for the modern-day "Fearless Defenders." Phil Jimenez delivers fantastic art that quickly reminds me how much I've missed his work. The story itself is independent enough to be enjoyable, but connected enough to add value to "Age of Ultron." In short, this is what an event tie-in comic book should be like. I just hope Jimenez comes back for more soon. Read Full Review

    While Im sure readers who have been actively following this event will get more out of this issue, I found it to be weirdly-paced and convoluted. The dialogue was often clunky, and while we got a lot of info-dump thats supposed to be relevant to the main storyline, I didnt feel particularly invested in any of this new information. This issue felt like a lot of things happening all at once, with little real payoff. As I said, fans of the event may enjoy it more, but overall this issue left me cold. Read Full Review
