I feel like we haven't learned much more or seen much more than we knew we were going to get in issue one. Not that predictably is always bad, I've just been waiting for something...more. Cool reveal at the end though, weird how it just causally upends Marvel cosmology but if it has a neat wrap up I'm down. Remember folks, these things can always be retconned.

Ok. Ok. Call me easily impressed but gosh darn did this ending really impressed and suprised me. To begin I have...thoughts on the last issue. Thoughts that have mellowed but are still there. I was however excited to see just who the designer was. Why was he deserving of all this hype? Why he was even still alive. Tynion not only failed to answer my question but instead told me that my questions d more

I think this issue will be better once read within the whole of the series. I believe sprinkled within the conversations between Terrific and his T-Spheres we will find the answer to the point of the whole series. That's the only reason I rated so highly. What this issue WILL mean later on. For now, I do enjoy the characterization of Mr. Terrific and the Rann stuff is neat albeit intentionally con more

Ok. So...the big takeaway is that this is the first Punchline major-role in any story and if this wasn't the most underwhelming intro to a character I've seen in sometime. Her couple of lines serve to only show us that she is not Joker's girlfriend, just a partner...maybe, and she is real edgy. That's how she comes across. Idk her role was so minor she might turn out to be a fun character, I just more

To start, I am a big fan of the X-Men's space faring adventures and this has it all. Even more so it all plays a role into what could have made for a amazing story. Where this issue falls flat is in pacing and the ending which both only bother me rather than ruin it for me. The pacing is too quick, the issue flys by in a story which really needs to take a break in order to have the proper impact. more

The review syestem for this site says a 7 is the first number which is in the brown or a mixed review, and I think that is accurate for this book. I didn't hate it, but it's a bad sign when the suplementals are more interesting than the book itself. The plot wraps up a few elements but also has an awkward, overly sexualizing scenes from a women who doesn't need more sexualization and a wierd expla more
