    Really great issue! This book has two surprisingly awesome villains in it, Stryker and Pietro. I really got sucked in with their stories. It's a fun book that drags you right in and won't let you go. All-in-all, it's my favorite of the current Ultimate line of books. I highly recommend this issue and this series. Read Full Review

    This comic was okay, even with Stryker in it. I'm pretty certain that Nick Spencer should be able to have himself a nice little run on this series... Once he gets away from Stryker!!! Read Full Review

    Paco Medina's art is perfectly acceptable. While not reaching the distinctive heights of Adams, not being asked to draw Wasp's intestines (or to forget that she's Asian in this reality) puts him miles ahead of David Finch. I think there's a Scarlet Witch story in the works, and I'm sure he's up to the task. He just needs fresh characters to draw. Read Full Review
