    I suspect that your enjoyment of this material stems from how big a fan of the Thing one is, as I'm a life long devotee of Aunt Petunia's favorite blue-eyed monster, and as such I suspect I'd love this book if it was four issues of Ben clobberin' a revolving door of third tier baddies. As it stands the main plot of this miniseries has Ben stumbling his way into the middle of a feud between the Kree & Skrulls, and while I've seen infinite variations on this familiar plot over the years, this time out has brought a bit more to the table than the standard clash, as frankly Ben's a fun character no matter what he's involved in. There's some clever ideas at play here, from the incubating Kree super assassin that Ben was playing host to, to the big mystery weapon that the Kree have acquired. There's also a nice little side-plot involving Ben coming to terms with a mistake from his past, that nicely ties into his tragic monster figure pathos (guess who's got themselves a new dictionary?).
