Normally I make fun of how quickly dead characters are resurrected, but I admit to being a little disappointed that wasn’t Natasha Romanov at the end of this comic. I miss her.

I enjoyed the art and there were some good moments, but overall, it's kind of silly right? Superman and Batman embarrassed to call each other and introduce their wives, fiances to each other? Just seems like something I would read in an Archie. Tom King's run has been subpar and this is just another example. If anyone wants the entire run I'll sell it to you, because i am just about done with this more

This issue was just as enjoyable as the rest of the series. Blinky and Black Bolt's relationship works and I'm glad that we get to see more fallout from Secret Empire on the Inhumans side that we didn't already get since the one Inhumans comic that focused on that event was about a ragtag group who aren't exactly crucial to New Attilan affairs.
