Most Decompressed Comic I've read. Bendis can Learn, from this. It took me less than a minute to read it. It's also Hulk Rip off. Mixed with Venom (ugh), and Super Soldier motive.

Pretty Good beginning to Avengers Family Crossovers. Some would be pissed off, that other Avengers were cancelled or put on hold, but my Experience with other Crossovers, like Second Coming or Trinity War, so when I don't have to read issues 45 to 241 and the issue 10, I'm grateful. As for story, It's simple, but effective. Heroes saving people durning time of Crisis. I'm hooked.

an "OK" issue, far from excellent.
felt like a retread of previous stories past, like this was a re-hash of Thomas Elliot.

some of the ideas didn't really feel like they were fully developed.
hints and clues were pretty weak and/or misleading.
motivations and actions felt a bit forced just for the plot.
to me it felt like Zsasz cutting himself was done for no other more
