Well this story came to a conclusion very quick, unfortunately quicker than wanted. The art for 90% of the issue was amazing. Feel like a lot happen in this issue that didn't grab my attention as much as I would enjoy. Though we did have some great one liner/ one page scenes.

Great chapter but i have to say that i read it twice and enjoyed it but it took me 15 minutes to read it twice. Some more exposition to go with the beautiful art from Yu/Alanguillan/Gho would have made more sense to me. I want more to read (yes i know i'm of the minority here). Just like all books nowadays, they read better as a collection. I wish i can wait for the TPB but the story is good and d more

The best part of this series is that it feels like the lead team book of Marvel. If you wanted to read one book that is really setting up the big story that is the Marvel 616 universe this is what you need to be reading. This is a big high action story that will keep moving till the last page. The two big books for this week are Avengers and Uncanny X-Men and both are laying the ground for epic st more

This was a perfect modern superhero comic. Wonderful art, action, intrigue, great character writing, tons of set-up, decent payoff. If every book were this good I’d go broke from buying them all. Literally no complaints here. I want to reread it tomorrow, and the day after.

Great issue. Better than the last. Picked up those threads and ran with them. I like Spencer's stuff so far. He's handling those angles very well. Ramos and Bandini delivered the goods and fit well together.

Top tier superhero title. The stories move in interesting and unexpected directions while keeping the characters true to themselves and the villain's plans are interesting. The art was really nice too, more like this please.

Really enjoyed this, there wasn't much superheroing going on but the story was still great. Spidey and Felicia's conflict was handled in a way I wasn't expecting, which i'm fine with. The rest of this arc looks really promising. MJ's story was really good too, looking forward to where that goes as well.

Very good issue! We advance the story, know about our villain, art work is gorgeous, and we get a nice sub-plot that doesn't take away or ruin the book. Wasn't on board with Nick Spencer for 4/5 of the first story arc but as of now I am full throttle with this current story arc!

Much better than last issue. Story is going strong and I really enjoyed the spidey/cat parts.
MJ sub plot was also pretty great, I hope we will get more of it.

Very strong issue. We finally get some more MJ, with an interesting subplot that delves into Peter and MJ's relationship. It's probably the highlight of the issue, even over a Spider-Man and Black Cat team up.

I just read this, and oh my god this was good. I"m assuming this is the end of Namors arc and that was handled really well, i loved the introduction of the winter guard, i'm assuming they're gonna keep showing up as a rival team. The character of the red widow is really intriguing. The entire story between Ghost Rider and Odin was god-like. Loki made a reappearance and that was really fun. Thunder more

Outstanding issue from Jason Aaron. His story just got immensely intriguing by all of the insane twists and reveals. That JLA nod was great especially with Agent. Marquez and McGuiness were perfect. Plus Irving, Kubert and Sorrentino delivered even more set up/future stories. This is the best $6 i spent in a long while.

I really tried to like this book and stuck with it but alas it's not good. I guess writing the inhumans is a hard thing to do for recent writers and Donny Cates is no exception. Olivetti's new art style while decent, just hasn't grown on me and isn't as good as his previous work.
