this issue was dumb.

it was a filler with its own filler. an issue where the filler was more enjoyable than the actual plot. but, as fun as spidermans random idea to talk to a spider was, it wasnt that great; not enough to pull this crap out of the shitter it was plopped into.

i mean lets be honest, what was furthered with this story? (even the last issue was made pointless more

Sakaar, or sucker, however its spelled, was wrapped up way too quickly and succinctly. But, this hulk didn't kill. Now, he's still not killing. In an obviously-stolen-from-the-recent-sherlock-holmes-movie way, Hulk takes out the bad guy speedily and safely why still smashing. It's great. So why are they playing it up like it's a bad thing?

Barely acceptable. Like most Snyder comics the ending is a let down and this is no different. The whole event was a messy mash-up of things that make no sense, classic deus ex machina scenarios, where for no reason Barbatos always has a plan and for no reason the heroes always have a way to counter it.

I believe he destroyed the list because Jocasta said Sideous wanted to use it to make more apprentices, Vader already doesn't like the Inquisitors because he wants the only sith in the galaxy to be the both of them, so he decides to destroy the list so Sideous couldn't get it. At least that's my take away from it.

Sav - Mar 18, 2018

@VGCinema that seems the most reasonable and I hate it. I want to believe that Vader doesn't want to share Sideous because he views him as a source for true power. But, to me, Vader's always had this misplaced sense of loyalty. I fear he doesn't want to share Sideous because deep down he's still that whiney bitch, Anakin, and Sideous is a father figure to him.

Awesome issue. I love it when Wade's intelligence and humor are on full display. He makes a fool of Cap.

I also love it when a "critic" gives an action comic a low rating because "it's standard action." What does that even mean? How do these fucktards honestly get recognized as critics?

It was ok. I'm frustrated by it. Nothing was really explained. Why is the void so hard to beat? How can Loki jumpstart magic, rip souls apart, (etc.) yet he's doing this now? Why?

It just seemed like a lazy way to just randomly give magic back to everyone. I liked the premise. And if Loki had a more legitimate reason to trick Strange then I think I'd be more accepting of it all.
