    Not a bad issue, but there's nothing all that memorable about it either. While I expected the Hero Reborn half of this split-format would be a distant second to Hawkeye's adventure, this issue I think I've discovered why this half of the book isn't working as well. Simply put the Hero Reborn Earth has never been developed as all that interesting of an environment, and as such the threat of having this world destroyed doesn't carry as much weight as it needs to. I mean if this story ends with the utter destruction of this world, I seriously doubt I would miss it, though if the Thunderbolts go with it then I'll be a bit upset, as frankly if they're going to make a heroic sacrifice, I'd like to see it be for something a bit more impressive than saving the Hero Reborn Earth. Still, Zemo gets himself a nice closing sequence where he's in full evil mode, and I'll admit I'm curious to see what side the other Thunderbolts will fall on when his plan becomes known to them.
