    The final portion of the book is all action again. Hurwitz gets a little too silly for his own good in these pages however. In between demonstrating a questionable grip on superhero physics and delivering an entrance that borders on slapstick, Hurwitz manages to work against himself every step of the way. All of this is capped off with a gratuitous and mostly pointless cameo by another Marvel hero. I hate pointless appearances like this, especially when they seem to exist only to provide the comic with an artificial ending point. Hurwitz shows some strong characterization in this issue, but that's frequently offset by a lot of pointless time-wasting. The series needs to hurry up and get to the point before even the gorgeous artwork fails to maintain reader interest. Opena won't be on the book much longer, and then the heavier burden will shift to Hurwitz's shoulders. Read Full Review
