Although I wish lenil yu was still on the art the art remained solid for the tone of the book. The story continues to slowly build and I lobe the continuation of secret empire. Good read.

While being very similiar to season 3 of the Netflix show, its really hard to have a 1st issue this good. The man without fear series was really good and set this issue up perfectly. Awesome read and the art has a little bit of that classic daredevil look.

A good read. I just wish theyd do a .1 type issue thing and just do all the origins of the old avengers much closer together. They are good but they seem a little pointless with it being so long since legacy. Also the ending of this was a little lackluster.
